Dragon Hunters (Chronicles of the Exile book 2) by Marc Turner (book review).

‘Dragon Hunters’ is book two in Marc Turner’s fantasy series ‘The Chronicles Of The Exile’. I’d like to kick off this review with a disclaimer that I haven’t read ‘When The Heavens Falls’, book one in this series, but was assured by the author that new readers should be able to jump straight in because […]

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them . . . new trailer for next Potterverse movie.

JK Rowling shifts her action to the US of A, and the time to prohibition era 1930s for the next Potterverse movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Think the Untouchables, but with wizards instead of G-Men. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the Whomping Willow.

Game of Thrones season six trailer: he drinks and knows things.

Here’s the Game of Thrones season 6 trailer: he drinks and knows things. And he baits really fire-throwy dragons, too. You know. Little chap. Probably end up as king at the end of it all when everyone else is dead. Tyrion, he’s your man.

Covenant’s End: A Widdershins Adventure by Ari Marmell.

Well, it’s taken three books to get here but the fourth book, ‘Covenant’s End’, could well be the final book for Widdershins as we know her. It’s a fitting, epic final but I’m sure there going to be a lot of fans who are going to hate Ari Marmell for it. For those who are […]

Javelin Rain (A Shadow Ops Novel) by Myke Cole (book review)

‘Javelin Rain’ is a direct sequel to ‘Gemini Cell’. You’ll definitely want to (should) read the first book to get a good handle on the back story, because author Myke Cole doesn’t waste a lot of time catching you up. He’s too busy keeping former SEAL Jim Schweitzer one step ahead of his pursuers! Schweitzer […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (film review by Frank Ochieng)

One would think that the ultimate showdown between two of the most iconic super-heroes would make for some downright compelling action-oriented exploits against a landscape of angst and destruction. Plus, it certainly did not hurt that exhilarating filmmaker Zack Snyder (‘300’) was at the helm in bringing together the colorfully and concocted confrontation between The […]

Nightchild (Chronicles Of The Raven book 3) by James Barclay  (book review)

‘Nightchild’ is the final book in James Barclay’s debut ‘Chronicles Of The Raven’ trilogy, with which he blazed a trail through the UK’s epic fantasy scene between 1999 and 2001. I reviewed the first two novels in the series, ‘Dawnthief’ and ‘Noonshade’, for SFCrowsnest a few months ago. Does ‘Nightchild’ provide a suitably dramatic ending […]

The Black Prism (Lightbringer book 1) by Brent Weeks (book review).

‘The Black Prism’ is the first book in the 2010 ‘Lightbringer’ trilogy from Brent Weeks, the author of the excellent ‘Night Angel’ series. I loved those books so approached ‘The Black Prism’ with eager anticipation. ‘The Black Prism’ centres around a system of magic based on colours. The idea being that users draw power from […]

Illustrators # 10 (magazine review).

Illustrators # 10 gets off to a great start with a look at the work of William Stout. He mixes his love of dinosaurs and zombies across the media of book covers to film production to museum work with the odd book chucked in. He also works across the medium for pen and ink to […]
