She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick cover

I know when I open a book by Marcus Sedgwick that I’ll be sucked straight in to his masterful prose style, and it was no different with She Is Not Invisible. The book begins by delving straight into the action, with sixteen-year-old Laureth Peak having somewhat abducted her seven-year-old brother, Benjamin, to board a plane from London to New York. She has used their mum’s credit card to book the flight, and withdrawn cash to use when they get there, all with the aim of tracking down their father. Their…

Created, The Destroyer by Warren Murphy & Richard Sapir

A series first released in 1971 and now enjoying an ebook release, Created, The Destroyer by Warren Murphy & Richard Sapir is a ruthless action series about an assassin who no longer exists. The book begins with ex-police officer Remo Williams awaiting the electric chair on death row, framed for a crime he did not commit. A known criminal was found beaten to death in the street with Remo’s police badge next to him, rendering his defence appeal insignificant and the death row decision rushed through the courts. Having accepted…

Sometimes there is enjoyment to be had from waiting for things – a kind of pleasurable anticipation.

However, there are also times when you need a book to be released yesterday (if not sooner). When, no matter how big the TBR pile, you…


REVIEW: The Godless by Ben Peek

The Godless by Ben Peek cover

The first in a new fantasy series, The Godless by Ben Peek is an action-packed tale of rival nations in a battle over the territory of a buried God. The book begins with cartographer’s apprentice, Ayae, in the city of Mireea, where she lives a content life with her partner, Illaan. Mireea is built atop the burial ground of the god, Ger, who many believe to be dormant rather than dead, waiting for the time to rise once more. As a result, the ground is believed to be infused with…

The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson UK cover

Set three-hundred years after the Mistborn trilogy, The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson visits the reshaped empire of Scadrial, which has been changed by the dawn of technology, with railways and skyscrapers clouding the landscape. Amidst the town of Elendel, the magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy remain prevalent, although magic such as Kelsier, Vin and Elend’s is long since consigned to the history books. However, there are those who are twinborn, possessing one element of both Allomancy and Feruchemy, such as our protagonist, Waxillium Ladrian, who can both increase…
