Review: This Savage Song

Review: This Savage Song

  Kate Harker and August Flynn belong from opposite sides of the ‘seam’, a partition which separates North V-City from South V-City, Verity.

Review: On The Edge of Gone

It’s the end of the world as we know it. A comet is headed for Earth and those who managed to get a spot on a ship leaving Earth, whether through money, essential skills or via a lottery have long left the planet.  Denise and her mother need to leave the flat to make it to […]
