Last Song Before Night

Last Song Before Night is about music, but it's also a work of music itself: Lyrical, dynamic, and winningly melodic.

Sorcerer to the Crown

This has been an incredible year for reading so far. Sorcerer to the Crown is another favourite and a strong top 10 contender.

Sorcerer to the Crown

a charming Regency tale featuring a wizard-in-chief who is black --- himself a freed slave --- and a non-white enchantress who is determined to bust up the convention of forbidding girls to practice magic.

Lamp Black, Wolf Grey

For readers who like elements of fantasy weaved into their historical fiction, this one should definitely satisfy.

Half a War

If you haven’t read the previous two books in the trilogy, you could probably read and enjoy this for the solid epic fantasy war story that it is.

The Death House

It's a stunningly told love story for adults and young adults.

Witches of Lychford

Cornell weaves a tight and fast-paced tale that's perfect for fans of paranormal fiction. It's also creepy and completely satisfying. Definitely not one to miss!

The Shepherd's Crown

As ever in Pratchett’s work, empathy and compassion are foregrounded.

Dragon Heart

Sometimes a little too concise and contained; at times the plot feels rushed, and with so many magnetic, indelible point-of-view characters packed into such a relatively short book, there's not enough time to spend with each of them.

Twelve Kings in Sharakhai

So, what has Brad Beaulieu done with Twelve Kings in Sharakhai? Nearly everything he should have done in the opening volume of a new series.

The Shepherd's Crown

Shepherd's Crown is still recognizably Pratchett, from the giggle-fit-inducing footnotes to the stern moral message about selflessness, empathy and caring for others

Twelve Kings in Sharakhai

As fantasy continues to diversify and open itself up to a more vibrant representation of cultures and possibilities, Twelve Kings in Sharakhai should rank among the most satisfying.

Sorcerer to the Crown

Absolutely everything about this book is delightful.

Three Moments of an Explosion: Stories

As a collection of stories it is interesting, engaging, beguiling, irritating and bewitching, sometimes all at once.

The Fifth Season
SFF World : The Fifth Season (August 04, 2015)

The Fifth Season is a powerful, epic novel of discovery, pain, and heartbreak across the landscape of a many-times broken world with characters who are supremely flawed and broken themselves.

Fool's Quest

Those of us who already know about these books will be pleased to discover that it’s still an amazing series and one that is well worth your time.

Secondhand Souls

Diehard devotees of Moore are sure to enjoy Secondhand Souls' madcap plot and zany characters. But if you haven’t read A Dirty Job, that might be the place to start. Then decide if you’d like a second(hand) helping with the new book.

Secondhand Souls

Secondhand Souls is a romping tale and a bit untidy.... For all the weirdness in these pages, there are some really thoughtful and interesting ideas as well.

Secondhand Souls

This isn’t the place to start with Moore, but for those who read and loved A Dirty Job, Secondhand Souls is a worthy sequel. Moore has created a world all his own, tackling dark subjects with a light-hearted irreverence.

Fool's Quest

Fool's Quest is, in nearly every way, a major improvement from Fool's Assassin, which is no minor feat.
