The Lord of Lies by Sam Bowring

The Lord of Lies by Sam Bowring

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Lord of Lies is the second and final instalment in the Strange Threads duology - a wonderful new Fantasy series centred on a group of Wardens - the strongest threaders (magic wielders) in Aorn. They had banded together centuries ago to defeat the tyrant Lord Regret, but were corrupted by his powers in the process. Aorn has since been off balance, but now it is even more so, with the return on the Wardens after a three hundred year absence, and unless the corruption is fixed, everything could be torn apart. The Lord of Lies is as much a story about...

The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The following contains spoilers for those who have not read The Black Prism, Lightbringer #1. Weeks’ writing has certainly evolved in the time between Way of Shadows and this, his latest masterpiece. The Blinding Knife is an example of epic fantasy at its very best – nuanced, perfectly paced and thematically…

The Legacy Of Lord Regret by Sam Bowring

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I’m going to be honest with you here: I had forgotten exactly how mesmerizing Sam Bowring’s writing is, misremembered how he hooks you into his book mere pages in! This novel is equally driven by action and its characters, executed brilliantly by Bowring in his unique style. A wonderfully spun…

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Reviews 2 ★★★★

Prior to reading this book I had resigned myself to never having the opportunity to read YA Fantasy of the likes of Trudi Canavan’s The Black Magician Trilogy. A lot of the Fantasy that’s marketed as YA these days tends towards paranormal romance, and I had come to terms with getting…

I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her. I left her beyond…

They say that the cure of Love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie. There was…

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Sometimes, but rarely, novels come along with amazing new ideas that sweep readers away. The Black Prism is one such book. It features a great plot, intricate with great detail but still easy to follow; masterful world building (with one of the coolest magic systems I’ve ever read about) and…

The Magician’s Apprentice by Trudi Canavan

The Magician’s Apprentice by Trudi Canavan

Reviews 0 ★★★★

As usual I am impressed by Trudi’s characters. The protagonist, Tessia, is funny, intelligent and strong – she holds her own in the male-dominated world of the magicians as apprentice to Lord Dakon. It was great to read a female protagonist who didn’t swoon over every boy she met as…

The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

Reviews 0 ★★★

This review contains spoilers. You have been warned. This book both surprised and disappointed me. I’m stil not sure how I feel about it, but when reading The Wise Man’s Fear I got the impression that Patrick Rothfuss took all these wonderful ideas about how he is going to change…
