• Review: Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) by John Gwynne

    OK! I'm calling it! Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) expired to DNF (at 23%) status on 10-Jul-2017 due to extreme prejudice against boredom.

    The Zero Stone is a magical book for me in some ways.

    The beginning was only sightly...

    There's not really much to be said. The Billionaire Wins the Game follows the same of format as a typical Harlequin - but I think it's closer to the Romance line than the Presents line.

    I can't say that I particularly enjoyed The Billionai...

Review: Swords & Dark Magic: The New Sword and Sorcery Edited by Jonathan Strahan and Lou Anders

I was very excited to read Swords & Dark Magic. When I first heard about the book, I instantly thought of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Sword and Sorceress series so I bought it based on nostalgia alone. It started very promising – “Goats of Glory” by Steven Erikson is full of… Read more »

The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
