The Lord of Lies by Sam Bowring

The Lord of Lies by Sam Bowring

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Lord of Lies is the second and final instalment in the Strange Threads duology - a wonderful new Fantasy series centred on a group of Wardens - the strongest threaders (magic wielders) in Aorn.

Having loved Philippa Gregory’s adult works, especially her Tudor Court novels, I have been anticipating her first YA novel for a long time. I was lucky enough to receive a review copy from the publisher, and I dove into it at first opportunity. Changeling exhibits all the traits I have…

I was looking forward to finally meeting Prince Alberon after reading about him in the previous two books. But when we meet him it is instantly clear that Alberon is no longer a boy, but rather a harsh and somewhat unhinged young man who is sure of his power as…

The Magician’s Apprentice by Trudi Canavan

The Magician’s Apprentice by Trudi Canavan

Reviews 0 ★★★★

As usual I am impressed by Trudi’s characters. The protagonist, Tessia, is funny, intelligent and strong – she holds her own in the male-dominated world of the magicians as apprentice to Lord Dakon. It was great to read a female protagonist who didn’t swoon over every boy she met as…

I liked Angel Fire more than Angel – which is saying something since I really enjoyed reading Angel. Weatherly proves once again that she can tell a wonderful story. I literally couldn’t put this book down, the characters are engaging, the plot is tight and the surprises are wonderful and…
