Spiderlight

This is where I usually list out the faults that I had with a novel, whether they be few or many, but the fact is that Spiderlight has very few faults. It is well-written, engaging, entertaining, and does exactly what it sets out to do.


Outcasts of Order

Always a pleasure to abide in Modesitt’s universe, if only for a few hours or days.


City of Lies

A well-crafted debut with believable political intrigues, solid worldbuilding, and original characters.


The Queens of Innis Lear

Gratton achieves the rare feat of a Shakespeare adaptation that earns the right to exist, but it's possible to have too much of a good thing.


Blood of the Four

Blood of the Four is a fun read. The partnership of Golden and Lebbon has resulted in a stylistically seamless narrative, allowing for the ideas and story to shine.


The Merry Spinster

One of The Merry Spinster's sharpest delights is the way fairy tale roles — wife, princess, youngest daughter, husband, king — are all detached from gender, so we are able to see them more clearly as distinct tropes.


The Hazel Wood

Fantasy lovers looking for something quite out of the ordinary should not miss this fantastic story from an author who is sure to make a name for herself.


The Hazel Wood

While I appreciate the hard truths and battles that The Hazel Wood offers, I ultimately wanted a book that believed in the power of fairy tales rather than rejecting it.


The Only Harmless Great Thing

A rich, poetic novella.


The City of Brass
Bookreporter : The City of Brass (November 17, 2017)

Overall, this is a masterful debut.... Chakraborty’s writing is excellent, lush and detailed. She illuminates sights, sounds and smells, and intricacies of magic, while also packing in page-turning action.


Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance

Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance... will grab you by the hand and thrust you into a world complete with animal whisperers, supernatural occurrences, and people who search their whole lives to find what’s right in front of them.


The Blood Within The Stone

If you enjoy reading classic epic fantasy and YA fantasy novels, you'll find this novel entertaining, because the story is good, the happenings are thrilling and the characters are well-created. What more could you possibly hope to find in this kind of YA fantasy fiction?


Deadhouse Landing

If you're looking for new epic fantasy fiction read, I strongly recommend taking a look at Ian C. Esslemont's Deadhouse Landing, because it's one of the best and most epic fantasy novels of the year. It won't disappoint those who are looking for fantasy fiction that has depth, style and substance. It's highly enjoyable escapism.


An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors

The pacing is alternately exhilarating and exhausting, offering a down-to-the-wire climax that leaves one both satisfied and a bit confused.
