The Lost Plot

The Lost Plot is immensely satisfying and thoroughly entertaining, as is the whole series. The only bad part is now having to wait yet again for the next book.


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.


Creatures of Will and Temper

Tanzer's slow, languid steps through her Victorian England give the novel a slow-burn quality that can lull you.


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.


Jade City
Kirkus Reviews : Jade City (November 07, 2017)

The open-ended nature of the ending suggests that the clan war is not yet over; it’ll be interesting to see what course Lee charts next.


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.


The Tethered Mage

If you’re hungry for a new fantasy series with awesome, nuanced characters, powerful worldbuilding, and solid writing–look no further. The Tethered Mage is the book you need right now. Absolutely recommended, and on my shortlist for favorite books so far in 2017.


The Stone Sky

So, yes. It was more than worth it: it’s a Shattering all on its own. And sometimes that is a good thing.


Mageborn
Kirkus Reviews : Mageborn (October 03, 2017)

Solid, if unexceptional.


Magicians Impossible

[W]here Abraham shines is in his cinematic treatment of the magical battles. The first chapter...is an astonishingly well-written cold open, introducing us to the world and its possibilities.


The Stone Sky

Her epic yarn of a divided and warring mother and daughter on a tormented, unitary continent called the Stillness — possibly a reverse-Pangaea, deep in our planet’s future — unquestionably subverts or inverts the conventions of old-school fantasy in innumerable ways.


City of Miracles

In short, it is everything we have come to love about the Divine Cities series with the added bonus of closure on key characters and story lines.


The Library of Light and Shadow: A Novel

The romance and chemistry between the characters is enchanting and I love how their magical abilities drive the story, however I just wish the ending had matched the build up of the book.


An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors

This is a story that gallops to the finish with a surprise on every other page and I just gave myself to watching the forces for Good battle the forces of Evil as the plot wound tighter and tighter and Isabelle worked to save the world with her smarts.


Halls of Law

Halls of Law is a fun, optimistic Epic Fantasy that proved a welcome change of pace from some of the more grimdark fantasy I’d been reading.


Reincarnation Blues: A Novel

So read it, okay? It's the most fun you'll have reading about a man who has been killed by both catapult and car accident. It has one of the best first chapters of the year, and the second one is even better.


The Stone Sky

I don't want to stop talking about this story. I don't want to count words. Let me leave it at this: The depth and breadth of Jemisin's achievement with this trilogy is geologic. These books are a revolution in which I want to take part.


The Library of Light and Shadow: A Novel

Possession. Power. Passion. New York Times bestselling novelist M. J. Rose creates her most provocative and magical spellbinder yet in this gothic novel set against the lavish spectacle of 1890s Belle Époque Paris.
