The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence – Cover Reveal

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence – Cover Reveal 

I first got my hands on work from Mark Lawrence back in 2011. He was pitched as the next George R.R. Martin (most authors are!). What I read wasn’t that. It was something much different, but at least as good. A book I described at the time as, “Disturbing, Beautiful, Chaotic, Poetic, Haunting, Exhilarating…” and […]

Mark Lawrence has done it! Not only did he provide a complete trilogy with unforgettable characters, a (low) fantasy world that is similar to ours, and a school that rivals Hogwarts, but also gives it an ending that leaves his readers satisfied.

Blackwing by Ed McDonald

Blackwing by Ed McDonald

Ed McDonald’s debut is an impressive tour-de-force of imaginative worldbuilding, gritty characterisation and absorbing writing. Ryhalt Galharrow’s story comes with the intimacy of a first-person point of view. McDonald gives his protagonist a voice as distinctive and world weary as Daniel Polansky’s Warden from The Low Town trilogy. Like the Warden, Galharrow is a soldier […]

As a reviewer, Red Sister set me a challenge I have not had since The Girl with All the Gifts: the conundrum of capturing how it made me feel and why, but without spoiling the experience for anyone who comes after me. (By the way – as far as The Girl With all the Gifts […]
