I really enjoyed The Sin Eater’s Daughter! It combines a few refreshingly unique concepts with a cool fantasy world and some interesting characters. It has its flaws, but I could overlook them because of its conceptual brilliance and lush storytelling.
Is there more? There’s more right? There are at least … fifteen sounds like a reasonable number … novels planned in this world, right. Right!?
An eerie tale of ghosts, hauntings and gate-keepers, Afterlight is a gorgeous work of magical realism set in the sinister alleyways of Melbourne.
I enjoyed Broken Sky, the first book in The Broken Trilogy from the very first page. Something about it just grabbed me. The setting and the concepts it explored were interesting, and the protagonist was awesome.
I am a huge fan of this world, and of the six brilliant individuals who helped save it. I have enjoyed every page, every moment, of my journey in the Starbound world and am sad to see it go.
Firstly, isn’t that cover gorgeous? It’s what drew me to Those Above in the first place, that beautiful cover with a giant sword that screamed Read Me. And I was further enthralled when I read the synopsis. A human uprising against the Gods? Sign me up. I really enjoyed Those Above. It has moments of brilliance where it transcends expectations, and at all other times is an entertaining and glorious read. I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!
Happily Ever After is a collection of all the short stories set in the world of The Selection, and it’s going to be popular with the fans.
I’m a sucker for reincarnation stories, so I’ve been looking forward to reading this since I heard about it. I loved The Next Together – the concept is amazing and the execution is brilliant! I loved every moment of my time with all the different versions of Katherine and Matthew. The Next Together transcends the traditional boundaries of genre to give readers a unique story.
The Cracks in the Kingdom is an exquisitely crafted blend of contemporary and fantasy fiction that will delight fans of both genres. A wonderfully compelling story, it will have readers desperate for the next instalment.
Iluminae has to be one of the cleverest books I’ve read in a long time. It’s a brilliantly crafted story that has everything – a terrifying AI, an interstellar war, explosions in space, romance, and dark humour. With its gorgeous artwork and unusual presentation, Iluminae is a feast for the eyes. It’s a vivid, emotional, exciting read that will hook most readers.
