Cold Steel

Book three in the Spiritwalker trilogy. Short, totally spoiler-free review is “aahhhhh, read it!” but three words may not be enough to persuade everyone. So to that I’ll add that this is a book by Kate Elliott and so it has great female characters, epic fantasy action, magic, treachery, love, …

The Iron Ghost

The Copper Cat trilogy # 2 The Iron Ghost is an entertaining mixture of dragon’s daughters, demons, mages, and evil, and not forgetting the action-packed adventure either. Story-wise, it takes place after events in The Copper Promise so I really would recommend reading that book first. I probably should have …

Black Wolves

book 1 in The Black Wolves trilogy. First up, the blurb-y bit, stolen from Goodreads because I cannot condense what this book is about any better than they did : An exiled captain returns to help the son of the king who died under his protection in this rich and …

Shadow Gate

Crossroads #2 The blurb on the back cover of my edition of this book gives away a pretty big spoiler for book one. So does the first line of the book, so I’ve had to take a different one for the blog, I don’t mind the odd spoiler with warning, …

Spirit Gate

Crossroads #1 Once The Hundred was a place of peace and safety. The Guardians delivered justice and the reeves flew in answer to them. But no one has seen the Guardians in generations. The reeves still patrol but their authority has been on the wane for quite a while, and …

The Copper Promise

The Copper Cat trilogy #1 Gallo has grown bored of waiting for his companions, Wydrin aka The Copper Cat and Sebastian the ex Ynnsmouth knight, and so has decided to venture into the caverns beneath the Citadel without them. He’s certain he will find whatever treasure they’ve been sent to …

The Mirror Empire

Book 1 in The Worldbreaker Saga Arc received from NetGalley Before I even mention the plot of the book I want to just say that I love this cover. Go on, take a proper look : The artwork is by Richard Anderson and it just so beautiful and yet grim …

The hobbit : An unexpected journey [based on the book by]

I really have no idea where to start this review. I mean, there is no point in recapping the plot is there? Either you’ve read the book, or see LOTR, or heard somewhere else that “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit” and how he went on …
