Prince of Fools by Mark Lawrence

Prince of Fools by Mark Lawrence

Reviews 4 ★★★★½

Excellent books are rare. Excellent books with a protagonist you love to hate are rarer. And yet, here I am, absolutely enthralled by Prince of Fools, even as I want to jump inside the pages and kill Jalan.

The world is exquisite, the adventure heart-pumping, the characters well written and realistic. Prince of Fools is a book to love.

I really dislike Jalan. A cowardly, unthinking, and selfish waste of space, Prince Jalan Kendeth lacks morality and basic human decency. He drinks, gambles and wenches his way through life, barely stopping to take note of others. But he's written so...

Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop

Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop

Reviews 9 ★★★½

I recommend this book to those who enjoy high fantasy and are interested in reading a dark, blood-filled story that inverts common tropes of the genre (matriarchal society, dark powers and Saetan are good). A successful examination of what darkness in human nature really means, Daughter of the Blood showcases Bishop’s potential and sets up a highly successful series.

The Shadowed Throne by K.J. Taylor

The Shadowed Throne by K.J. Taylor

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Taylor’s gorgeous writing hooks me again! The Shadowed Throne is impeccably plotted and wonderfully told, figuratively carrying me away into another land. I’m not sure I’ll survive the wait until the concluding volume of the series. Since the groundwork was beautifully laid out in the previous title, The Shadow’s Heir,…

Black Sun Light My Way by Jo Spurrier

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

This book should be entitled “The Impossible Choices Plaguing my Favourite Characters, and the Heartache that Ensues.” Sierra, Isidro, Cam, Mira and Rasten were all put through so much throughout Black Sun Light My Way, it was kind of a relief when the book ended! I thought the strongest element…
