The City’s Son by Tom Pollock

The City’s Son by Tom Pollock

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

I loved The City's Son so much, I worried that I won't have the words to describe how I feel. It turns out that I have a lot of words for how amazing this book is.

The Tower Broken is the final book in the Tower and Knife trilogy by Mazarkis Williams, a series I have adored since the first book came out. This book rounds out the story well and answers all the questions and curiosities I’d had, and in general, does a much better…

Taking up soon after Planesrunner, Be My Enemy follows Everett Singh as he jumps across parallel universes to rescue his father, with the help of the crew of the airship Everness. I really enjoyed this novel and feel it’s even better than the first in terms of action and world-building….
