The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence
4.75

When I first saw the cover of the US edition of Mark Lawrence’s new book, The Girl and the Stars, I had to read it. I promptly contacted Mr. Lawrence, who was generous enough to provide me contacts for getting myself a copy of his newest novel. The front cover is truly beautiful, with undertones of mystery and wonder, and I was fortunate to be added onto the reviewer list. Lucky me.

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 […]

Holy Sister by Mark Lawrence

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. Holy Sister, the third Book of the Ancestor, wraps up everything in this […]

Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence

Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence

Mark Lawrence delivered an amazing story about a convent that trains young girls into warrior nuns in a world where they are feared and needed. The author is a storyteller virtuoso to know that sequels and follow ups to stories are best when they start where the predecessor ended. And, there is further development in […]

VoyagerCon – Event Review

VoyagerCon – Event Review 

First, let me confess to being an idiot. Those who know me, have met me, or avoided me (I’m sure it happens), were probably aware of that already. I always, always, plan my journey across the London Underground before I leave home. Otherwise, as happened here, I end up staring at a TFL map seeing […]

Mark Lawrence is an author whose name gets lost within his stories. This is because his stories are so poignant and so ubiquitous that one could easily forget the name of the author. If you are able to remember the titles of his books, then it is justified that you remember his name. The Book […]

If you’ve not read any of the three titles by Becky Chambers, I suggest you have a little word with yourself and seek them out immediately. If you’ve not heard of Becky Chambers, then where have you been? Her first novel, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet was the first book I managed […]

The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang

The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang

Today is May 4, coincidentally the 99th anniversary of the first popular protest in China’s history. Due to the somber tone of The Poppy War, I am eschewing my usual levity in this review. In my review of Naomi Novik’s His Majesty’s Dragon, I proclaimed to be an avid student of Napoleonic History. If there’s […]

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff
4.5

“A girl like you has no place in this sort of business.” “Believe me, Captain,” Mia replied. “You’ve never met a girl like me.” Jay Kristoff’s Godsgrave, the second book in the Nevernight Chronicles, is not an easy book to review. This isn’t because the book isn’t outstanding – it is. You should buy it. […]
