Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

This story expertly re-orients readers in the world Sanderson created in Steelheart, and gears us up for the followup which is coming out next year.

Mitosis takes up with David shortly after the end of Steelheart, where the citizens of Newcago are dealing with THE THINGS that happened in the book and the new role that the Reckoners have to fulfil. We also get glimpses of our some of our favourite characters from Steelheart, including Abraham, who hates hot dogs, and Tia, who is still taking care of David and making sure he's OK.

I love David's character, especially his...

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Auri is a gentle, beautiful, wondrous soul, and her adventure in this novella is heart-warming. I loved every page. I loved getting to know the hidden places that only she visits. I loved discovering a completely new place, naming it, and arranging it so it was just so. I loved the illustrations that made this book so sweet.

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

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.

Shatterwing by Donna Maree Hanson

Shatterwing by Donna Maree Hanson

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Shatterwing is the first novel in the Dragon Wine series, which is set on a world which used to have two moons until one of them (called Ruel) broke and crashed into the planet. Now there is one moon (Belle), and fragments of Ruel span the sky and occasionally fall out of orbit to impact on the planet. Intelligent life has regressed, partly because of the devastating effects of the planet-satellite impact, and partly because the impact seems to have introduced a species into the world: dragons.

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Child Eater is a fantastical story about two boys, born in different worlds and centuries apart, who are bound together by magic and fate, and a monstrous creature known only as The Child Eater. He has preyed on generations of children and their ghostly voices cry out for help, cry out for someone to end their curse.

Talon by Julie Kagawa

Talon by Julie Kagawa

Reviews 1 ★★★

This book is about dragons! DRAGONS!! How excite!! I’m really disappointed with it because Kagawa did incredible things by subverting everything we knew about vampires and dystopia with The Blood of Eden series, but in Talon we’ve gone back to mediocre (and annoying) characters and shaky world-building that made me dislike the Iron Fey books.
