A very belated review for a truly wonderful fantasy full of twists, magic and glamour!Continue reading “Review: The Mask of Mirrors by M A Carrick”
Everything about this book sounded like it was going to be exactly my kind of thing (sign me up for any and all f/f fairy tale political fantasy!) and it really hit the spot!
You ever just read a book so perfect for you that it’s like the author wrote it on spec to your preferences? Yeah, this book is EXACTLY what I’m looking for in a YA fantasy.
Grave Mercy was unexpectedly perfect for me!
If you love stories where the stakes are high and the games are twisty, then The Gameshouse is where you need to go…
What a book! The Raven Tower is like no fantasy I’ve read before – it’s experimental, and kind of weird, but very powerful and philosophical.
I am absolutely loving the number of awesome epic fantasies that are coming out this year! I read the extract of The Ruin of Kings when it was available on NetGalley last year, and adored it so much that I actually shouted ‘NO!’ when I realised I couldn’t turn the page any more. Luckily, I was fortunate enough to be accepted to read a full proof, and let me tell you, this book is even more astonishing in full.
The Girl King was one of my most anticipated reads for 2019 – political fantasy, with a fraught sibling relationship, in an Asian-inspired world? It sounds brilliant, and it really is.
Yeah, no surprise, I’m still here for NineStar’s queer fantasy! A Dance of Water and Air looked really intriguing as I love elemental magic, and it’s got cute boys being cute together!
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.
