Master Of The Cauldron (Lord Of The Isles Saga book 6) by David Drake (book review).

‘Master Of The Cauldron’ is the sixth in David Drakes’ ongoing ‘Lord Of The Isles Saga’. I must admit to approaching long series like this with suspicion as I am not sure what an author can say in six books which could not have been said in a tighter trilogy. Nonetheless, on we go to […]

Enchantée by Gita Trelease (book review).

‘Enchantée’ is book one in the ‘Enchantée’ series but I feel like you could read this as a standalone. Here we are in Paris 1789 but, wait, there’s magic! See that’s why there’s a review for this book on a fantasy reviewing website. Anyway, Camille Durbonne and her little sister, Sarah, are very nearly destitute […]

Dark Shadows: Heiress Of Colinwood by Lara Parker (book review).

Victoria Winters returns to Collinsport but the family are missing and there’s a gruesome surprise in the kitchen. Welcome back to ‘Dark Shadows’, a delightfully over the top melodrama which kept viewers absorbed in the late 1960s, while it threw the kitchen sink at the script. Since its original death, it has refused to lie […]

The Mage-Fire War (The Saga Of Recluce book 22) by L.E. Modesitt, Jr. (book review).

‘The Mage-Fire War’ is the 22nd book of ‘The Saga Of Recluce’. but don’t let that put you off as they can mostly be read independently. This is the third book featuring Beltur, a nice, ruthless young man who’s an order mage of great power. The previous Beltur books were ‘The Mongrel Mage’ and ‘Outcasts […]
