Barry’s Bloody Books

A wander through the world of speculative fiction where I look at all things fun and fantastical…

  • The Memory of Souls by Jenn Lyons

    24th Jun 2022 by

    This book upped the ante even more if that is possible. Told in a similar manner to the previous books, it starts with Kihrin and Thurvishar recovering after some major event of which we nothing at the start.
