Mercy Thompson: Homecoming by Patricia Briggs, David Lawrence, Francis Tsai and Amelia Woo (book review).
‘Homecoming’ is a graphic novel that runs alongside the ‘Mercy Thompson’ series of books by Patricia Briggs. In fact, it runs slightly prior to the first book in the series. This graphic novel tells the story of Mercy Thompson, a walker who can shape-shift into a coyote and how she came to be working in […]
‘The Water Witch’ is book two in ‘The Fairwick Trilogy’ preceded by ‘Demon Lover’ by Juliet Dark if you’re in America or ‘Succubus’ by Carol Goodman if you’re in the UK. As a bit of heads-up Carol Goodman is known to write under three different pseudonyms being Juliet Dark, Carol Goodman and Lee Carroll. She […]
‘Blameless’ is book three in ‘The Parasol Protectorate’ preceded by ‘Soulless’ and ‘Changeless’ and followed on by ‘Heartless’ and ‘Timeless’. As this is book three of a series, I would advise that the previous books are read before this one as this do follow quite closely on from one another. I would also like to […]
This is the first book in a series of an unknown number of books and it’s followed by ‘The Water Witch’. Carol Goodman, who writes as Juliet Dark, has also written a lot of other books on various different themes. Please also be aware that this book has been published under two different names ‘The […]
The best way to describe this book, ‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern, is a combination of a few different tales. To be honest, the actual circus is merely one element. Firstly, we have a magical competition that originates between two older illusionists which they then bind their young protégés into using magical rings. These […]
This is the very exciting first book in a new young adult series by Gail Carriger. Currently, there are a further two books in the series to be published later in 2013 and 2014 called ‘Curtsies & Conspiracies’ and ‘Waistcoats & Weaponry’. Together they will form the new ‘Finishing School’ series to run in the […]
This is book two in ‘The Parasol Protectorate’, following on from ‘Soulless’. In all there are five books in the series, this is something I have to say I like, an author who knows when to finish a series of books. This is a series that needs to be read in order or you won’t […]
Beautiful Redemption (Caster Chronicles series book 4) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (book review).
‘Beautiful Redemption is the last book in the four book ‘Caster Chronicles’ series preceded by ‘Beautiful Creatures’, ‘Beautiful Darkness’ and ‘Beautiful Chaos’. I love the fact that this is the last book, not because it will all be finished but because I know that the story won’t be extended further and further. Although a few […]
‘Beautiful Chaos’ is book three in the ‘Caster Chronicles’ preceded by ‘Beautiful Creatures’ and ‘Beautiful Darkness’ and followed by the fourth and last book, ‘Beautiful Redemption’. I would suggest that these books are read in order as they would make little sense if read as standalone novels. I would also suggest that you have copies […]
Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles series book 2) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (book review).

I must warn you now that there may be some unintentional spoilers in this review as I am writing about the second book in this series, I apologise but sometimes it’s impossible not […]
