Review: Scythe

Review: Scythe

Scythe has been out in the US for a wee while and I kept hearing great reviews about it, so obviously when it was published here by Walker I snatched up a copy. (I actually ended up with two copies so be sure to enter my giveaway if you are based in the UK.) The […]

I received a sampler of Spare and Found Parts a few months ago and must admit I was very intrigued, so I was delighted when Titan Books sent across a finished copy. Spare and Found Parts is the story of Nell, a teenager living with her father in a post-apocalyptic version of Dublin. A century […]

But once I started to get my head around things I actually quite enjoyed the story – it certainly is action packed! I made […]

Review: Tower of Dawn

Review: Tower of Dawn
