I loved the first Caitlyn book by Elizabeth Davies, Three Bloody Pieces (review here!), so I was thrilled to be able to join the book tour for the second book, A Stain on the Soul. I loved it even more than the first one – if you’re looking for a witchy read for October, I highly recommend this series!

When I finished the spectacular Ascension, I was so keen for the sequel I started reading it in the untranslated French! Turns out, there are a lot of spaceship words I don’t know, so I was thrilled to be approved for the translated Distortion on NetGalley.

I’m so pleased to be able to support Fallible Justice from the start, because it’s just wonderful.

I adored The Last Namsara, so I was thrilled when I was offered the chance to join in on the blog tour for the release of its companion novel, The Caged Queen! It may well have fewer dragons, and we no longer follow the character of Asha (who I love for obvious reasons!), but The Caged Queen is an absolutely stellar tale of sisterly love and female strength.
