Book Review: Holy Sister, by Mark Lawrence (2019).

This book was more than worth the wait! Holy Sister, the third and final book of the Ancestor series is one of war and death, but it is also one of love and life. It’s an amazing roller coaster ride that everyone she experience even just once. Again we follow Nona Grey as she plays her role in saving Abeth. It is the subtle changes in Nona’s character that can be easily missed that really make the story. We learn in this final book just how much Nona has grown and how much she has come to learn in this … Continue reading Book Review: Holy Sister, by Mark Lawrence (2019).

Book Review: Wham!, by Carol Marrs Phipps & Tom Phipps (2016).

Now I understand the significance of the cover. At least I think I do. Unfortunately I feel as though I have spent at least 75% of this novel trying to understand what exactly is going on. There is no easing into the story, the author goes straight into the action of the present situations that there is no real background given as to why anything is occurring. As the scene isn’t set in the usual way it’s easy to get terribly lost, but wit a touch of perseverance it is still worth the read. Admittedly, I did somewhat enjoy Wham, … Continue reading Book Review: Wham!, by Carol Marrs Phipps & Tom Phipps (2016).

Book Review: Relic of the Gods, by Philip C Quaintrell (2018).

Relic of the Gods is the final book in the series Echoes of Fate by Philip C Quaintrell. It has been a fabulous read and one that I have enjoyed very much. I feel it is almost on par with my favourite of all authors Robin Hobb in its beautifully presented prose and fantastic storyline. This is one series I could definitely read again and again! There is so much to love about the final book, even though there is still a lot of sadness that comes to pass. The story of Asher is absolutely fantastic, and although the ending … Continue reading Book Review: Relic of the Gods, by Philip C Quaintrell (2018).

Book Review: Empire of Dirt, by Philip C Quaintrell (2017).

What a fantastic novel to follow the first in this action packed, heartbreaking adventurous fantasy series. Dragons have to be one of my favourite fantasy creatures, and Empire of Dirt is on no shortage of these. Nor in Elves, Mage, and of course evil Darkakin. The story remains fast paced and adventurous, and another novel difficult to put down. There are so many things happening all over the realm, with characters spread out throughout the lands. But of all of them I would have to say I like Gideon the best. He is a young Mage that isn’t entirely sure … Continue reading Book Review: Empire of Dirt, by Philip C Quaintrell (2017).

Reading Suggestions – daughter of a Pirate King, by Tricia Levenseller (2017).

Asher, our main character is a ‘Ranger’, who hasn’t the best reputation amongst the locals, or the knights known as Grey Coats, also known as protectors of the lands.

Book Review: Aversity, by Claire Farrell (2012).

There were a lot of questions posed at the end of the last book Clarity. Thankfully, Claire Farrell thought it necessary to fill in holes by producing book #2.5 Adversity. In this novel we learn the story through the eyes of Amelia. As with the books prior to this in the series, the prose is simple, but the storyline holds much promise. Understanding things through Amelia’s eyes shows yet another side to the story, shedding light on the strangeness of her dreams and illness and her sudden change into a Werewolf. In this book it is her ancestor Kali and … Continue reading Book Review: Aversity, by Claire Farrell (2012).
