Interview: Joe Abercrombie

Interview: Joe Abercrombie

March 27, 2015 Bookish 3

Joe Abercrombie *squeal* recently visited Australia and I was very lucky to have the opportunity to sit down and talk to him about his newest release, Half the World, the second book in his YA series The Shattered Sea. He'd only recently arrived in Canberra after a three-hour drive ("not much to see on the drive down!") and had a reading in half an hour, but he sat down over a cup of coffee with me. But first, as usual, a little about the book:

Congratulations on the publication of Half the World. Did you always know the...

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

March 16, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★

An admirable début novel that combines a rags-to-riches story with a dystopian world and the powers of the X-Men, Red Queen will please a varied audience. I enjoyed reading it but have to concede that there is almost nothing original about it, and that it ultimately failed to wow me in the way that it could have.

A brilliantly crafted sequel to Half a King, Half the World takes us back into the world of the Shattered Sea, introducing us to two new protagonists and letting us catch up with some old favourites.

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

November 12, 2014 Reviews 3 ★★★★★

An amazing book, even more so when you realise it’s a début. Début novels usually don’t come to readers so richly told and well-executed. I recommend The Queen of the Tearling to readers of fantasy, and fans of the works of Trudi Canavan and Sarah J. Maas will devour it.

I loved everything about A Thousand Pieces of You! It’s a beautiful book and I know I’ll spend a lot of time raving about it. I don’t think I can accurately express how much I loved this book. You’ll just have to grab yourself a copy and experience the awesome yourself.

The Falcon Throne by Karen Miller

The Falcon Throne by Karen Miller

August 18, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

I’ve loved The Falcon Throne! I’ve been in a haze since I finished it, and I just want to buy lots of copies of it and make others read it. However, at over 500 pages, there’s no doubt that it’s going to challenge some readers! I think fans of the genre will fall in love with this world and its characters and, like me, will be begging to get their hands on the next instalment.
