Saint’s Blood by Sebastien de Castell

Saint’s Blood by Sebastien de Castell

Reviews 0 ★★★

In Saint's Blood, the third instalment of the Greatcoats series, our heroes Falcio, Kest and Brasti struggle to save their country from an ever-growing threat. Their enemies are smarter and stronger, the world is darker, and the stakes have never been higher. While enjoyable, this book felt repetitive and confused, and like the main characters, I mostly felt tired while reading it. Deato mendea valus febletta. The Gods give every man a weakness. The world-building, previously one of my favourite aspects of the series, was confused in this instalment. Not only was there a new enemy -- the relentless God's Needles...

Marked by Sue Tingey

Marked by Sue Tingey

Reviews 1 ★★

I feel oddly duped by Marked. I was expecting a paranormal-urban fantasy with some detective/crime vibes, and what I got was a paranormal romance that reminded me of the Merry Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton.

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.

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.
