The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders edited by Jan Edwards and Jenny Barber (book review).

Being an old alchemist myself who took some time to get over the phlogiston theory, I was intrigued to see what was going on at The Alchemy Press. If you have not encountered them before, I would check out the website. This isn’t a weird and wonderful collection of 1960s hippies with crystals, wind chimes […]

The House Of Rumour by Jake Arnott (book review)

Stories generally adhere to a set formula. There’s a lead character, a premise, some progress and usually an ending that all flow nicely along in a pattern. It’s worked for a very long time. Tell that to Jake Arnott, who with ‘The House Of Rumour’ has created something different that I doubt 300 words of […]

Shadow Heir (Dark Swan series book 4) by Richelle Mead (book review).

Reaching the end of series, whether of three books or fifteen can provoke mixed responses. A well-written, nicely shaped set of novels about a group of characters can provide immense satisfaction as they come through the myriad of obstacles put in their way. The reader can hope the rest of their lives runs more smoothly, […]

Between Two Thorns (Split Worlds book 1) by Emma Newman (book review).

‘Between Two Thorns’ is the first in the new ‘Split Worlds’ series of books, this also includes a set of short stories (see more information at the bottom of this review). Currently, there appear to be two more novels in this series ‘Any Other Name’, and ‘All Is Fair’, but there’s no mention of it […]

The Outcast Blade (The Assassini book 2) by Jon Courtenay Grimwood (book review).

‘The Outcast Blade’ is the second ‘act’ of ‘The Assassini’, an alt-historic fantasy focusing on the political and romantic intrigues of fifteenth-century Venice; it follows on from ‘The Fallen Blade’, which I didn’t really enjoy and is considerably more assured than its predecessor. The Venice of the time was Europe’s richest city, grown fat on […]
