The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina

The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina

Reviews 5 ★★★★★

It's hard to believe that The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is a début novel. It's rich prose, brilliantly imagined world, and nuanced characters are sure to impress a wide ranging audience.

There is an inherent Balance between all life, and the only way to preserve it is to live in harmony with ourselves, with each other, and with the earth."

I love the world-building in this novel! It's a dystopian world based on Australia with Dreamtime mythologies - like the Serpent - cleverly weaved into it. Ashala Wolf lives in a world ravaged by the affects of technological mismanagement and...

Catalyst is the final instalment of the amazing science fiction series that began with Insignia. Tom Raines faces new challenges in this book and faces them with his usual combination of bravery and brashness.

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Words of Radiance is absolutely breathtaking, and fantasy fans are missing out if they’re not already reading The Stormlight Archive. I love this story-world and its characters, and am excited because there are eight more books to come! I can’t wait to see what Sanderson dishes up next!

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is one of the cutest anthologies I have ever read. Featuring talented YA authors like Stephanie Perkins (who has also edited the anthology), Laini Taylor, Holly Black and Rainbow Rowell, this book will steal your heart! All the short-stories have Christmas, holidays and romance in common, and all of them will touch readers in some way.

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

A wonderful short story that lacks none of the magic, wonder, and darkness of a GRRM book, The Ice Dragon will capture the imaginations of many readers. Don’t let its small size fool you: just because it’s short and illustrated doesn’t mean it’s a children’s book.
