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…

REVIEW: Endurance by Jay Lake

Endurance by Jay Lake

*Warning: Contains spoilers for book one* Hoping for some much need improvement from the first book, I decided to persevere and read Endurance by Jay Lake, the second in the Green series. The book begins with Green residing in the mountains with Ilona and her daughter, minor characters who were introduced briefly in book one. In her pregnant state, Green has been hoping to live a quiet life until the birth of her baby, leaving the people of Copper Downs to sort out their own affairs after the introduction of…
