Book Review – God of Broken Things by Cameron Johnston

A fantastic conclusion to the duology and a great send off to mighty Edrin Walker. So the Age of Tyranny duology is undoubtedly all about Edrin Walker. He’s a thief, a magus, a tyrant, and an arsehole extraordinaire. He’s also charismatic and downright fun. God of Broken Things does exactly what it needs to as … Read more Book Review – God of Broken Things by Cameron Johnston

Review Blog – The Traitor God (Age of Tyranny #1) by Cameron Johnston

The Traitor God is the story of Edrin Walker, a surly deviant of a magician who has spent the last ten years running away from a past he can’t quite remember. He’s fairly certain, however, that it has something to do with his murdering of a god. But when his best friend is killed and … Read more Review Blog – The Traitor God (Age of Tyranny #1) by Cameron Johnston

Review Blog – The Hod King (Books of Babel #3) by Josiah Bancroft

I always find it difficult to review the third book in a trilogy. The review inevitably turns into a review of the series instead. Well, The Hod King is even tougher in many ways because it’s not the end. The series is a quadrilogy. As such, I’ve been sitting on the review for a few … Read more Review Blog – The Hod King (Books of Babel #3) by Josiah Bancroft

Review Blog – Priest of Bones by Peter McLean

Priest of Bones is the story of Tomas Piety, a gangster conscripted and sent to war, only to return years later to find all his businesses have been taken over by other gangsters. But it’s more than that, a lot more. It’s the story of soldiers returning from a war they never wanted to fight, … Read more Review Blog – Priest of Bones by Peter McLean

Review Blog – Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Kings of the Wyld is fantastic, imaginative, and unique. One of the most impressive debuts I’ve read in a LONG time. So the premise of KotW is that it is set in a Dungeons & Dragons style world with humans and monsters living side by side and not really getting along too well. Oh, and … Read more Review Blog – Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Review Blog – Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is a man with a formula. Luckily for us all, he knows the formula so damned well that he can use it to tell a compelling story in almost any genre. Skyward is the story of Spensa (which sounds far less pretentious when you just pronounce is Spencer), a young girl facing the … Read more Review Blog – Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Review Blog – Chasing Graves by Ben Galley

Dark, dangerous, and full of humour. This is how I like my grimdark. Chasing Graves is a dark book, where the world is a shit place, and it only gets shittier once you die. But there is humour to offset the oppression, and glimmers of something shiny underneath all the muck. This book is set … Read more Review Blog – Chasing Graves by Ben Galley

Review Blog – Paternus: Wrath of Gods by Dyrk Ashton

Paternus: Wrath of Gods is book 2 in Dyrk Ashton’s Paternus trilogy, and to review it I first need to say a little something about book 1. In Paternus, Dyrk broke all the rules. He wrote in present tense, gave us an omnipotent perspective that head hops at an impressive rate, and exposits all over … Read more Review Blog – Paternus: Wrath of Gods by Dyrk Ashton

My Favourite 5 of 2018

I’m not a prolific reader. In fact most years I’m lucky if I make it through 2 books a month. But in 2018 I set myself the goal of reading more books, even if that meant listening to half of them. So as the year’s end draws near I have read 38 books! This might … Read more My Favourite 5 of 2018

Review Blog – The Ember Blade by Chris Wooding

Look, I’ve been a Chris Wooding fan for years now ever since I unwittingly stumbled across Retribution Falls. It was a fast paced, swashbuckling adventure with a gallery of rogues brought to life by truly excellent characterisation. So I quickly read everything else Chris had written and eagerly awaited more. The Ember Blade was a … Read more Review Blog – The Ember Blade by Chris Wooding
