Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell

March 12, 2014 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.

Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson

February 11, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

The things I know about Viking can be summed by Marvel comics and the two Thor movies. Basically, nothing. Swords of Good Men caught my eye because, at the time, I hadn’t heard of any other honest-to-goodness Viking-esque books around. It’s a brilliant, fast-paced début that I can see a…

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….
