As you saw in my 20 Books of Summer TBR post, this is my oldest review copy. I’m so pleased to have finally made time to read it – and I enjoyed it just as much as I’d hoped!Continue reading “Review: A Dress for the Wicked by Autumn Krause”
The Unbroken has been receiving so much hype in my circles, and I can see why! Unfortunately, though, it wasn’t quite my cup of tea…Continue reading “Review: The Unbroken by CL Clark”
Today is my turn on the blog tour for The Wolf and Woodsman, an atmospheric fantasy which tackles some intense issues while also offering a compelling magical adventure.Continue reading “Blog Tour: The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid”
I’d be impressed if you’ve managed to spend the last couple of months in the fantasy community without hearing a lot of hype for this book – unfortunately for me, I think all the buzz raised my expectations for this atmospheric fantasy romance a little too high.Continue reading “Review: For the Wolf”
I absolutely fell in love with Sarah Pinsker’s writing with A Song For A New Day, which I reviewed here, so I was really happy to be asked to be on the blog tour for her newest book, We Are Satellites!Continue reading “Blog Tour: We Are Satellites”
You might be wondering what’s going, on, since I already raved to you about how much I loved this book back in February. But today I’m excited to be helping my pal Nikki at Books and Lemon Squash wrap up the blog tour to celebrate the UK publication of Master Artificer!
And just look at that beautiful cover!! This series has some seriously amazing design going on – the foil is so lovely! This finished copy was sent to me by Gollancz for the blog tour, and it’s huge in person (far bigger than it felt reading the ebook!).
As I mentioned above, I reviewed Master Artificer back in February, because Justin was kind enough to let me read an extra-early ARC! You can find my review here, and in fact, if you need to go back further to refresh your memory, you can find my review of the first book in this series, Master of Sorrows, here. This series is fun, exciting coming-of-age fantasy that really plays with traditional fantasy tropes: from the chosen one to the magic academy, this book may seem like a familiar story, but it twists and turns everything into something really fresh and clever – and dark! Do head to my reviews to read more!
What I have for you today is a little extra treat on top of my review. I thought about asking Justin to do an interview with me, but as we chatted, we actually ended up talking way more about the concept of interviews, and how they can not only benefit readers by revealing the answers to things we want to know, but can also benefit authors… and so, I present to you a meta-interview! (Oh, and he did end up answering one very vital question for me, so make sure you read to the end for that!)Continue reading “Blog Tour: Master Artificer by Justin Call”
The Story of Silence is a lyrical, dreamy retelling of a medieval poem, which offers a consideration of gender and identity that feels surprisingly modern.Continue reading “Review: The Story of Silence”
Fantasy romance lovers should definitely keep an eye out for Dragon Tamer – it’s full of seriously cute romance and plenty of fun magical adventure!Continue reading “Review: Dragon Tamer”
I’m sad to see the end of this fabulous trilogy, but Voidbreaker offers a thrilling and satisfying conclusion that has cemented The Keepers series as a new favourite for me!Continue reading “Review: Voidbreaker”
After the excellent Kit series (see my reviews of The Dragon in the Library, The Monster in the Lake, and The Wizard in the Wood!) I’ll read anything Louie Stowell writes, and this Labyrinth-inspired tale of fairyland lives up to the hype!Continue reading “Review: Otherland”
