Libriomancer - Jim C. Hines

I admit that when I first picked up this book I was a bit sceptical. I freely admit that I put off reading this for one reason and one reason only. I really hate the cover. It’s so bad for me to be judgemental like that but it’s everything I hate in a cover. However, I have never been happier to be proved so wrong to judge a book by its cover because this was a truly engaging read. Libriomancer is one of the most innovative ideas I’ve come across…

Sea of Love by Susan Donovan cover

Beginning a new romance series set on a holiday island is Sea of Love by Susan Donovan, which introduces us to Bayberry Island and their mermaid mythology.

Happy Birthday

It’s a little difficult to categorise Happy Birthday. I’m not a massive proponent of the books needing to be categorised – if you enjoy them then what does it matter? Besides which, whatever it is, Happy Birthday succeeds at it beautifully. Phoebe Bowler has had better times. After being jilted at the altar by her long term boyfriend she barely has the means to keep hold of what was once their shared flat. Just as she finally seems to be getting her life back on track she finds out that she is living next…

Deadly Curiosities by Gail Z Martin cover

A great premise lurks behind the cover of Deadly Curiosities by Gail Z. Martin, which takes on the urban fantasy genre with admirable spirit. The book is based in Charleston, South Carolina, in an antique shop called Trifles and Folly, which specialises in acquiring powerful supernatural artefacts before they can become a danger to the general public. The shop is currently run by Cassidy Kincaide, whose family has owned the shop for generations, working in accordance with the Alliance, a global organisation which works to protect humanity against dangerous supernatural…


REVIEW: The King by J.R. Ward

The King

I love Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series and have since I picked up the very first book. The King revisits those first two characters we fell in love with – Beth and Wrath, several years on. Of course, 12 books into the series and a lot has happened to the lovely Beth and Wrath, from disabilities to assassination attempts. But also their relationship has been shown as under strain of late. This book takes us back to the characters, but also reinforces the difficulties the couple have been experiencing being…

Poor Sophie, her first night alone with her husband in a month and she is expecting a quiet dinner in town. Instead, her sister drops the news that their father is intending to remarry and the fun just keeps on rolling from there. She gets a newspaper article mailed to her that Aubry…
