City of Stairs

As someone with a deep and abiding interest in war, colonialism, power, genocide, oppression, and a love of bad-ass monster killing scenes, City of Stairs was just the right mix of awesome for me.


The Angel of Losses

In terms of subject and style this won't be a book that fits every reader's tastes - but what book ever does? It's likely too the kind of book that needs to be approached in a frame of mind.


City of Stairs

Exciting, extremely well-written, and thought-provoking, City of Stairs is a perfect example of high fantasy and in general an amazing novel.


Broken Homes

Much of Broken Homes feels like groundwork being laid for future books, and for the explosive twist that comes at the end of Broken Homes.


The Midnight Queen

Sylvia Izzo Hunter has crafted an impressive debut novel and begun a provocative series.


Child of a Hidden Sea

Child of A Hidden Sea is a fantastic journey of self-discovery and coming of age, all set against a vibrant fantasy world backdrop.


Plague World

Fredsti’s book is populated by four-square, well-developed characters, and its witty and naturalistic dialogue, throbbing action sequences and sky-rocketing high stakes ensure that Plague World is as effortlessly readable as the first two entries in the series.


Fool's Assassin

[I] was more than happy with the whole of the novel and can’t wait to see where Hobb takes the story.


Slimy Underbelly

Anderson’s obviously found his niche. Readers who share it will be in zombie heaven, or wherever zombies would go if there were life after undeath.


Fool's Assassin

The novelists in any genre are rare who achieve it with Hobb’s combination of accessibility and moral authority.


Visions
Kirkus Reviews : Visions (August 25, 2014)

A thrilling mystery and multiple love interests leave plenty to explore in the next book.


The Magician's Land: A Novel

Mr. Grossman is usually a subtle, sophisticated writer, though, for some reason, he seems to have altered his tone in parts of “The Magician’s Land,” using too much narration with too much broish language.


The Magician's Land: A Novel

A huge part of the pleasure of this trilogy in general and this volume in particular is that, even as we consume the story just to find out what happens to Quentin, we know that we are collaborating in our own versions of its creation, its animation. The reader gets to be a magician, too.


The Magician's Land: A Novel

The Magician’s Land serves as a capstone to one of the great literary fantasy trilogies of our time, a work which not only rewards reading, but actually improves with re-reading.


The Angel of Losses

Readers may enjoy this two-tier story more for its accessible romantic and family dramas than its convoluted religious arcana, but Feldman devotes passionate storytelling and powerful narrative skills to both.


We Are All Completely Fine

Even if you’re not much of a horror fan, even if Lovecraft isn’t your jam, We Are All Completely Fine is worth your attention. Just pull up a chair, sit in on the support group. You’ll be drawn in in no time.


The Supernatural Enhancements

Spirits, ciphers, secret societies, and some funky pseudoscience involving the dangers of dreams make The Supernatural Enhancements a fun and addictive read.


The Angel of Losses

It has an interesting premise almost ruined by its lack of fundamental storytelling cues—and not in the good sense, where formal experimentation rewires the narrative in an unusual way.


The Magician's Land: A Novel

The Magician’s Land still manages to be a satisfying finale to the series, while adding depth and shading to the world—magical and otherwise—of the earlier books.


The Queen of the Tearling

The Queen of the Tearling is a wonderful novel. If Johansen carries on the way she does, the series is sure to be well deserving of the epic fantasy tag.
