2019’s Best New Genre TV Shows 

I still remember my childhood, when I wasn’t much interested in TV shows due to their being a pointed lack of sci-fi and fantasy adaptations. But these days not a week goes by when some new genre fiction gets adapted. Original material also keeps springing up left and right. So, it is almost criminal not […]

Vigilance by Robert Jackson Bennett

Vigilance by Robert Jackson Bennett
4.25

Robert Jackson Bennett is one of the authors whose writing, I eagerly look forward to whenever something new is announced. I was a bit skeptical about this title though, as this is a dystopic science fiction novella, which is not a genre I associate Bennett with. But he once again proved admirably why he is […]

Masters of Deception by J. C. Kang

Masters of Deception by J. C. Kang

I would like to start with a confession, I haven’t read any of J.C. Kang’s previous novels and know nothing about the world in which this story takes place. I jumped in totally blind, went with the smooth pace of the book and was captivated with the wonderful world that the author created. While I […]

The Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander

The Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander

But, The Only Harmless Great Thing is much more than just sentient elephants, it’s an emotional piece of work creating a quite plausible alternate reality that makes us think about the morality […]

To be able to write efficiently in more than one genre is a rare talent. Although I loved his first series, I going to be really honest at the onset of this review by admitting I didn’t expect Myke Cole to possess this trait. And boy am I glad to be proved so wrong. The […]

Age of Assassins by RJ Barker

Age of Assassins by RJ Barker
4.5

Coming-of-age books are quite common these days, so are the books containing assassins as protagonists in fantasy, so how does a book combing these two themes actually fare? RJ Barker proved that it can work out rather brilliantly. It just needs what every great novels need: strong and interesting characters, unique magic system and worldbuilding, […]

Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
5

When I started reading Kings of the Wyld it was already quite hyped and I am someone who is rather uncomfortable dealing with stuff which accumulated hype overnight. Thus, I approached the book being extremely skeptical and had a nagging feeling in my gut that it was going to be overrated. Boy was I dead […]
