This is a welcome sequel to ‘The Witches Of Lychford’, where the three encounter some serious power from the other side. In fact, from all sides. This time the women are divided by their experiences, their power lost because each […]

Judgment At Verdant Court (World Of Prime book 3) by M.C. Planck (book review)

I love the premise of M.C. Planck’s ‘World Of Prime’ series. One day, Christopher Sinclair wakes up in an alternate universe where technology is limited by a strict code of feudalism and the rules of magic, religion and time. I can’t elaborate further on that last point without spoiling the second book of the series. […]

Jubal Van Zandt And The Revenge Of The Bloodslinger by eden Hudson (book review).
