Review: The Smoke Thieves

I’m not even going to try to explain The Smoke Thieves. Usually, I like to attempt a wee overview but in all honesty, I don’t think I could do this book justice in a summary! So, read the one above! Told from the perspectives of five characters; Tash, a demon hunter; Catherine, a princess betrothed […]

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 […]

Review: Tower of Dawn

Review: Tower of Dawn

In case you aren’t aware, Tower of Dawn is the Chaol novella that Maas was working out that turned into a full-length novel – 660 pages!
