The Kingdom of Copper

The Kingdom of Copper is pretty much all you could possibly wish for in a fantasy read. And you don’t even have to use up the limited supply in your special lamp.


The Little Snake

What The Little Snake is about more than anything, though, is the acceptance of death as an ineluctable part of life. It’s not a new message, but Kennedy conveys it here in a manner that is subtle and hugely moving.


The Kingdom of Copper

I am in awe of the world that Chakraborty has created, alongside our own human realm, and cannot wait to return to it in book three.
Absolutely recommended.


The Little Snake

In “The Little Snake,” the swift emotional slippages click along, one after another, sentence after sentence, like an intricate concatenation of rainbow-bright dominoes.


City of Broken Magic

Overlong and rough around the edges but still promising.


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.


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 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.


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

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 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 Only Harmless Great Thing

A rich, poetic novella.


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 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.
