The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams

The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams
4.5

This is the second book in the Winnowing Flame trilogy and continues soon after the end of the first book, The Ninth Rain. Since this is a sequel I will not be going into details of the plot, but I will say that the sequel maintains the fantastic standard of the first book. The Bitter […]

The Silver Tide by Jen Williams

By now, I’m sure everyone knows how much I love Jen’s books. Last year I was raving about The Iron Ghost, which was one of my favourite titles of 2015, and I’m happy to say that The Silver Tide is firmly lodged in my favourites of 2016. Not only is it a great book, it’s […]

The Copper Cat has a face

The Copper Cat has a face 

For many years, one of Fantasy-Faction’s most beloved authors, Jen Williams, has had her books stranded here on our little island. Despite us Brits raving about Jen’s sword & sorcery adventures until we’re blue in the face, Americans have been without word on when/if they’d be able to follow the tales of sellswords Wydrin and Sebastian, and their vengeful […]

Putting the Fun in Fantasy by Jennifer Williams

Putting the Fun in Fantasy by Jennifer Williams 

With The Copper Promise I wanted to write a fun fantasy book. A sort of knockabout, adventure and peril and dastardly deeds type of book. The type of book that would take you down the pub and deliberately buy you all the weird drinks made from the contents of the sticky bottles at the very […]

The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams

Although I’m in danger of echoing some of Joanne Hall’s excellent commentary published here earlier this month, I feel that The Iron Ghost absolutely deserves the attention of two reviews. I’d like to start by highlighting Joanne’s point about middle book syndrome and the way in which The Iron Ghost so deftly escapes it. This is […]

The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams

The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams
4.5

Jen Williams’ debut novel, The Copper Promise was one of my personal highlights of 2014. It came out last January, which seems a long time ago now, and The Iron Ghost is the not-long-awaited but eagerly anticipated follow-up, the middle book in the trilogy. Middle books in a series can be difficult; they have to […]

Jen Williams responds to opinions on Bookshops’ perceived SFF Prejudice

Jen Williams responds to opinions on Bookshops’ perceived SFF Prejudice 

So, yesterday we published a piece on Fantasy-Faction highlighting the observations made by three of British fantasy’s female authors suggesting that UK Booksellers are selling them and their contemporaries short. A number of comments and tweets came flooding in, and Forum Members even started a topic; the overwhelming feeling was that ‘yes, there is a […]

The Copper Promise by Jennifer Williams

The Copper Promise by Jennifer Williams
5

There are some far-fetched rumours about the caverns beneath the Citadel. Some say the Mages left their most dangerous secrets buried there; some say the gods themselves have been imprisoned there. For Lord Frith the caverns hold the key to his vengeance, against all odds he has survived torture and the death of his family, […]
