I know I normally review fantasy and sci fi but this definitely falls into my "occasionally something else' pile. I was recommended this by my older brother at the end of 2019 so wanted to give it a go.

I was a teenager when Blood Sugar Sex Magik came out and the Chilli...

I had a love hate relationship with this series so lets get that out of the way first.

Hollow Kingdom is a highly original post apocalyptic fantasy story with a real sense of heart, an incredible sense of humour and a foul mouthed crow as it’s protagonist.

Shit Turd or ST is worried. His owner Big Jim who has taught him everything he knows about communica...

4/5

Despite the 4 star rating I found this really difficult to read. It's a magnificent continuation of the story and shows us new sides to old characters as well as making us fall in love with some new ones. The action sequences are formidable and glorious with the Iro...

“Being the Dark Lord and Prince of Evil is not as much fun as it sounds, particularly if you re basically a decent person. King Mordak is more goblin than person, but the point is that he’s really keen to be  a lot less despicable than his predecessors.

Not the that oth...

A Little Hatred (The Age of Madness #1) by Joe Abercrombie is set in the same world as his magnificent First Law series and boy is it a treat to be back.
