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.

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.

The Seventh Miss Hatfield by Anna Caltabiano cover

Establishing a brand new concept is never easy, but that’s part of the joy in reading The Seventh Miss Hatfield by Anna Caltabiano.

Miss Hatfield is their newest neighbour, having just moved in across the street, and draws Cynthia to her house one day under the mistake of a parcel being delivered to the wrong house. Despite knowing she shouldn’t talk to strangers, Cynthia accepts Miss…

Child of a Hidden Sea by A.M. Dellamonica cover

As a novel I have been somewhat excited about reading, I anticipated Child of a Hidden Sea by A.M. Dellamonica to be the next great fantasy series. The book begins with Sophie Hansa having been transported to the land of Stormwrack, a world comprised of islands barely large enough to call themselves countries. One moment she was witnessing her aunt being assaulted in a San Francisco alley, and the next she was thrown into the sea and trying to keep her aunt alive. Disoriented and confused, Sophie is hauled aboard…
