City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

City of Blades is utterly brilliant, a worthy sequel that surpasses its predecessor without overshadowing it, and an exquisite achievement in its own right. “Deserve. How preoccupied we are with that. With what we should have, with what we are owed. I wonder if any word has ever caused more heartache.” I thought I'd miss Bulikov. I thought I'd miss Shara.

Marked by Sue Tingey

Marked by Sue Tingey

Reviews 1 ★★

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Blood Will Follow is a solid second novel and I have enjoyed it. Fans of Gemmell will devour Kristjansson’s books, and I think they’re perfect for fantasy readers who are looking for something new to read. Vikings, mythology, politics, and swords – what could go wrong?

Binary by Stephanie Saulter

The sequel to Gemsigns has blown me away. Binary is grander and more sophisticated than its predecessor, but lacks none of its heart and brilliance. Binary accomplishes what few sequels do in surpassing its predecessor in every way.

Tom Pollock writes a mind-blowing sequel with The Glass Republic, adding spice to the story he began in The City’s Son by switching protagonists and introducing a previously unexplored aspect of his alternate-world London.

Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell

Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell

Reviews 5 ★★★★½

I haven’t loved a book this much in ages! Reminiscent of The Three Musketeers, humour, swordplay, intrigue and a hint of magic are carefully balanced in this fun and exciting début. The book is highly entertaining, full of adventure and lots of laughs.
