Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts

Having read a crime novel by Nora Roberts before, I was unsure what to expect when I received a copy of her new fantasy series, Stars of Fortune. The book begins with Sasha Riggs, a dream seer whose visions predict the future or provide potentially vital warning signs. For the last few weeks she has been having recurring dreams of a group of six individuals (herself included) who each seem to be working together against a powerful force. She is an artist and paints her visions, keen to know exactly…

Shadows of Self - Brandon Sanderson

Having become a huge Brandon Sanderson fan in recent months, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next Mistborn book, Shadows of Self. Picking up where the previous book left off, we find Waxillium Ladrian drawn into yet another mystery in the city of Elendel, this time bringing in more mythology established in the original Mistborn trilogy. When Governor Innate’s brother is found murdered in his own home, along with all his criminally-minded party guests, there are no obvious leads to indicate how these murders were carried out….

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

Having loved a few of Sanderson’s novels now, I was keen to expand my fantasy library with Warbreaker. In his usual stellar fashion, Sanderson depicts a new fantasy world with its own rules regarding magic and its uses. As many fantasy novels do, this one begins with two warring nations and the tentative peace treaty between them, with one of the big problems being magic. The royal family of Idris are firmly against the use of breath, whereby someone can collect other people’s breaths to increase their own strength and…

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

After reading and loving Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha series, I’ve been on tenterhooks waiting for her next release, Six of Crows, the first in a duology. I knew I had to dive into this book as soon as I received it from the publisher and, like her previous books, I couldn’t put it down until I’d read to the very end. This new series is set in the same universe as the Grisha, although it is by no means a prerequisite to have read the previous books, with this first instalment…

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

I love reading anything by Brandon Sanderson, so when Steelheart popped up on NetGalley I knew I had to have it right away. The book begins in the past, with a flashback to our protagonist, David, and his father visiting a bank on a seemingly ordinary day. Their lives have changed in the wake of Calamity, an event which transformed a select few humans into Epics – beings with extraordinary powers. These powerful men and women are now running the city of Newcago, with one in particular claiming the ultimate…

Darkhaven by A. F. E. Smith

When this book’s beautiful cover caught my eye on NetGalley, I knew I had to read it, and I’m glad I picked up Darkhaven by A. F. E. Smith. The book is set (surprisingly enough) in the kingdom of Darkhaven, which is ruled by Florentyn Nightshade, the Overlord. The Nightshade family has ruled the city for centuries, predominantly because of their ability to shift into one of five powerful creatures, and Florentyn is no exception. He is a powerful man who is determined to secure an heir, with his existing…

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

A tale of corruption and lost cities, Elantris by Brandon Sanderson was his first fantasy novel, and sets the precedent that everything that has followed. The book begins with Arelon’s Crown Prince, Raoden, having woken up and discovered that he has been marked by the Shaod. The Shaod is a mysterious disease that can afflict anyone in the city, causing them to come out in black blotches and to lose their hair. As a result, all those infected with the Shaod are thrown into the city of Elantris, a city…
