Die and Stay Dead
Kirkus Reviews : Die and Stay Dead (September 30, 2014)

A repetitive and unfocused setup for a third novel.


Die and Stay Dead
Kirkus Reviews : Die and Stay Dead (September 30, 2014)

A repetitive and unfocused setup for a third novel.


City of Stairs

City of Stairs is just shy of utter perfection for two reasons. The second half comes with several moments of clunky exposition in marked contrast with the sophisticated first half of the novel. It actually dangerously veers toward “idiot lecture” i.e. let’s make sure our readers understand exactly what we are doing here.


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.
