The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones  by Frank Ochieng (film review).

Well, the search for the next ‘Twilight’ phenomenon continues desperately as Hollywood coughs up yet another pretender in the clunky supernatural serial ‘The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’. When will the movie studios realise that these futile attempts to fill the void with these tepid teenybopper fantasy romancers featuring the arbitrary inclusion of ‘tween triangular […]

Heart And Soul (Magical British Empire book 3) by Sarah A. Hoyt	(book review).

‘Heart And Soul’ concludes the epic story which began in ‘Heart Of Light’ and continued in ‘Soul Of Fire’. As I read these some time ago and have read a lot of other stuff in between, it was confusing at first but this is often the way with trilogies. Really the best thing is to […]

Seventh Son has a wizard time.

The first trailer for the movie Seventh Son, based on the Wardstone Chronicles novels by Joseph Delaney hoves into view. Looks like a fantasy epic in the making, although the cinema-going public’s acceptance of the fantasy genre has been spotty at best (Hobbits and Tolkien works aside).
