Larcout by K. A. Krantz – SPFBO Review

Larcout by K. A. Krantz – SPFBO Review 

Larcout is one of ten novels in the final round of Mark Lawrence’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off (SPFBO) 2016. Updates on the contest’s progress can be found here. I’m not sure what I was expecting when I chose K. A. Krantz’s novel to be the first SPFBO finalist I read and reviewed, but it certainly wasn’t […]

A Question Of Technology

A Question Of Technology 

When people think of the fantasy genre the concept of technology isn’t usually at the forefront of their minds. They’ll be thinking of the magic, the monsters, the castles and townships out of the past, so it’s understandable that thoughts of science and progress are pushed to the side. But so long as somebody in […]

Path of Flames by Phil Tucker – SPFBO Review

Path of Flames by Phil Tucker – SPFBO Review 

We have entered round two of the Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off. To avoid cruelly stretching things out, we’ll be posting individual book reviews as we eliminate them rather than waiting till we’ve finished them all. Please note that we’re not reading (or eliminating) these in any particular order. If you’re going to start a book, start […]

Veiled Intentions by Michael R. Miller – Cover Reveal

Veiled Intentions by Michael R. Miller – Cover Reveal 

Today we are lucky enough to be hosting the cover reveal for Michael R. Miller’s next novel, Veiled Intentions, second book in The Dragon’s Blade series. If the author’s name and series title sounds familiar to you, there is a good reason. The first book in Miller’s series, The Reborn King, is was the winner […]

Conspiracy of Ravens by Lila Bowen

Conspiracy of Ravens by Lila Bowen 

Spoiler Warning: This review contains mild spoilers for Wake of Vultures. Please read with caution if you have yet to finish the first book. Conspiracy of Ravens, by Lila Bowen (AKA Delilah S. Dawson), gives me exactly what I want in a sequel. Everything I loved in book one of the series, Wake of Vultures, […]

Arm of the Sphinx by Josiah Bancroft

Arm of the Sphinx by Josiah Bancroft 

Spoiler Warning: This review contains spoilers for Senlin Ascends. Please read with caution if you have yet to finish the first book. Having steadily accelerated in devouring Senlin Ascends (the first of the books of Babel), I fell with almost unseemly haste into its sequel, Arm of the Sphinx. I will try to avoid giving […]

Wrath by John Gwynne

Wrath by John Gwynne 

Spoiler Warning: This review contains spoilers for the first three books: Malice, Valour and Ruin. Please read with caution if you haven’t finished the books. “We’re going to need a bigger warband.” Since 2012, John Gwynne has been promising us that ‘even the brave will fall’ and dear god, they have. Each successive instalment in […]

The Burning Isle by Will Panzo

The Burning Isle by Will Panzo 

Slow and steady does win the race, as proven by Will Panzo’s debut novel. Also, bonus points for being a standalone. The Burning Isle delivers with a long-brewing vengeance story. Looking back, there was nothing remarkably unique about the plotline, but not once in its 400-plus pages was I tempted to give up. There are […]

So You Want To Be A Wizard by Diane Duane

So You Want To Be A Wizard by Diane Duane 

I think it’s a safe bet that most people who visit this site have wanted to be a wizard at some point (and a safe bet that some of us still do). Unfortunately, as far as I know, none of those wishes have come true, which is why we turn to books. If we can’t […]

Infernal by Mark de Jager

Infernal by Mark de Jager 

Infernal is truly a book that raises hell across its pages. After beginning in a quiet meadow one scarcely expects the kind of chaos that occurs throughout the story. The plot focuses on the amnesiac Stratus who awakens in said meadow with nothing but his name and a headache, yet he quickly discovers that while […]
