I don’t think it’s possible for Stephanie Burgis to write a story I don’t love, but her lockdown project, a collection of four short stories and novellas about a grumpy metal-mage and her cheerful necromancer neighbour, might just be my new favourite…Continue reading “Review: Good Neighbors – The Full Collection by Stephanie Burgis”

Cover Reveal: The Raven Heir by Stephanie Burgis
This is perhaps the most exciting thing I’ve ever been asked to do on the blog: a cover reveal for The Raven Heir, the new middle grade fantasy from one of my all-time favourite authors, Stephanie Burgis!
I’ve been lucky enough to read an early copy of this gorgeous new book and let me tell you, if you’re a fan of magical adventures, fabulously capable heroines, and wonderfully atmospheric magic, this is a book you need to know about! The blurb is just below, but first of all, let’s take a look at this stunning cover, with artwork by Petur Atli Antonsson and lettering by David Dean.
TRIPLETS. ONE OF THEM IS HEIR TO THE THRONE. BUT WHICH ONE?
Cordelia, Rosalind and Giles. They have lived in the tower all their lives, protected by their mother’s enchantments. Only Cordelia’s magic lets her steal moments of freedom – over the walls in the shape of a bird or beneath them as a scurrying mouse. The eldest of the three is heir to the Raven Throne of Corvenne – a land no one can rule for long and hope to live. Only their mother knows which is the true heir, and she will do anything to keep them hidden. But one day, thanks to Cordelia, destiny finds them.
The Raven Heir is an unbelievably epic new middle-grade fantasy. With incredible shapeshifting magic and unforgettable characters, readers will be hooked from the first page.
Doesn’t that just make you want to jump in right now? I know I would have absolutely fallen in love with this book as a child, and 100% would have begged my mum to make me a dress like Cordelia’s (to be honest, I still might!). If this stunning cover has tempted you, you can preorder The Raven Heir on the Bookshop.org site or from your local independent bookshop, and then it’s just a case of managing to wait until the 5th August to read it!
A sweet and fluffy epilogue to my favourite Regency fantasy series, Frostgilded is absolutely perfect comfort reading!
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Stephanie Burgis’s Harwood Spellbook series, which combines Regency romance, magic and feminism into wonderfully cozy, comforting, enjoyable reads. The newest novella in the series, Moontangled, is out today!
Review: The Dinosaur Hunters
Patrick Samphire is the husband of Stephanie Burgis, who is one of my very favourite authors. I saw her tweeting about this series – Regency! on Mars! with dinosaurs! – and knew I had to give it a go – safe to say, this is a very talented couple…
Review: The Girl With The Dragon Heart
When I saw there was a sequel to The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart coming out, I squeaked, immediately put it on pre-order, and requested it on NetGalley. And I’m so glad I did, because this book is just SO good.
Review: A Most Improper Magick
After so thoroughly enjoying The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart, I thought I’d pick up some more of Stephanie Burgis’ work. A Most Improper Magick, also published as Kat, Incorrigible, is a really lovely middle-grade Regency romp that is perfect for fans of feisty heroines and lovers of Austen.
Review: The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart
The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart is another MG novel with a fantastically vivid use of food – this time, chocolate rather than the buns of Baker’s Magic!
