The Ninth Rain (The Winnowing Flame Trilogy book 1) by Jen Williams (book review).

‘The Ninth Rain’ is book one in the new trilogy called ‘The Winnowing Flame Trilogy’ by Jen Williams, the previous trilogy being ‘The Copper Cat Trilogy’ which I highly recommend. Both trilogies follow different characters and seem to be set in different worlds, but they are all high fantasy with plenty of swords and sorcery! […]

All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders   (book review)

This is that rare find these days, a stand-alone SF/fantasy novel. I’ve put it as both but to be honest this is a genre-defying book that just happens to contain some magic and some science alongside all the other parts of the story. This is the story of Patricia, who learns that she can understand […]

Ancient Appetites (The Wildenstern Saga book 1) by Oisin McGann (book review).

‘Ancient Appetites’ is book one in ‘The Wildenstern Saga’, which currently stands at three books and one novella. They are classed as YA, so not much swearing and sex goes on within these pages, but you will encounter ‘a little bit of mild peril’ as they say at the movies. The first thing you need […]
