Those Below by Daniel Polansky

Those Below by Daniel Polansky

Reviews 0 ★★★★

It was hard to let go of Those Below. So hard that I delayed reading the last ten or so pages until I was dangerously close to allowing 2016 to end before I turned the last page. I love this world, I love these characters, and I'm sad that it's over.

The second book in Polansky's duology, Those Below takes up two years after Those Above ended and reunites readers with a widely varied cast at the cusp of changing the world. They have each grown and changed in interesting ways and the Great and Terrible Deeds hinted at in...

This is the kind of urban fantasy I love – gritty, dark, a little gory, and based on amazing characters whom I couldn’t help but love. This Savage Song highlights the best of Schwab’s writing — awesome story-craft and kick-ass worldbuilding — and introduces us to a world I won’t…

I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful time with Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter, and I’m sad to let them go … but I do have the novellas in Stars Above to look forward to! The idea of blending science fiction, fairy tales, and Sailor Moon may sound odd (I was sceptical at first), but I urge readers to give the series a chance. I don’t think you’ll regret it.

I was lucky enough to be chosen as an advocate for The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon! A huge thank you to the wonderful folks at Bloomsbury Sydney for choosing me! I honestly didn’t think I’d be picked!
