The Boy with the Porcelain Blade by Den Patrick

Lucien de Fontein has grown up different. One of the mysterious and misshapen Orfano who appear around the Kingdom of Landfall, he is a talented fighter yet constantly lonely, tormented by his deformity, and well aware that he is a mere pawn in a political game.

A Storm of Swords Part 2: Blood and Gold by George R R Martin

There's just no way of getting around it. This is the fourth (second half of book three?) book in an on-going series and there will likely be something akin to mild spoilers beyond this point. At least I expect there will be, what with George R.R. Martin's penchant for killing characters off and whatnot. As ever, don't say I didn't warn you. Fear cuts deeper than swords.  The Starks are scattered. Robb Stark may be King in the North, but he must bend to the will of the old tyrant Walder Frey Read more [...]

The Gospel of Loki by Joanne Harris

Loki, that's me. Loki, the Light-bringer, the misunderstood. The elusive, the handsome and modest hero of this particular tissue of lies.  Take it with a pinch of salt, but it's at least as true as the official version, and, dare I say it, more entertaining. So far, history, such as it is, has cast me in a rather unflattering role. Now it's my turn to take the stage. When it comes to a good yarn there is little more entertaining when there is a platinum rogue at the heart of it all. Read more [...]

Cover Reveal – Delete by Kim Curran

Kim Curran's last book, Control, ended on an epic cliffhanger. I've been waiting patiently for Delete to arrive* Sadly it's not quite with us yet, we have to wait until August to find out how Scott Tyler fares. In the meantime, we'll just have to content ourselves with the striking cover art. Great stuff, it fits perfectly with it's predecessors. I can't fault the fella that came up with cover quote either!   * I'm lying obviously I want to read immediately, if not sooner. Read more [...]
