Legion by William Peter Blatty

Having not read The Exorcist, I didn’t really have any expectations when starting Legion by William Peter Blatty. Instead, I was slightly confused when the opening of this book delves into a philosophical rambling from the main protagonist, Lieutenant Kinderman.

REVIEW: Green by Jay Lake

Green by Jay Lake

In the beginning of a new fantasy series, Green by Jay Lake takes a girl out of poverty and turns her into a feisty assassin. The novel begins in retrospect, with Green reflecting on her sale to the merchant, Federo, and her journey to the Pomegranate Court in Copper Downs. This is her earliest memory, being unable to remember anything about her homeland apart from her father, grandmother and their ox, Endurance. She cannot even remember the name she was given, as Federo merely calls her ‘Girl’, and she is…
