Fool Moon by Jim Butcher

Another very solid book, I think I preferred it to the first book. This book, as you may guess from the title, revolves around werewolves. We have a series of gruesome murders, which all lead Harry to a mad series of situations with different groups of the aforementioned werewolves. We have the same cast of …

Storm Front By Jim Butcher

I’d heard a lot of things about this series, it’s often mentioned as the best urban fantasy around so I thought I’d finally give it a go. I’d also heard that the series doesn’t really get going until the third book so my expectations weren’t too high. It centers around a wizard PI called Harry …

The Master of Whitestorm by Janny Wurts

A somewhat strange book. Describing it it seems to be like a RPG game, where our protagonist completes tasks, each getting harder and more implausible as it continues. We start the story from the viewpoint of a slave on a ship where he is shackled beside our hero. Apparently he’s been a slave for five …

Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

While I didn’t enjoy it as mush as the first one, it is still a really good book. We start off pretty much straight after the last one and are reintroduced to the same characters as before. Also fairly minor characters from the first book have a much more prominent presence now though the POV’s …

Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan

What a book! There was just something about it that really appealed to me, it gave me the feeling of anticipation that I rarely get these days, where I’m just dying to find out what happens next. I read the whole book in one day, I think that shows how good it was. We have …

The Vorrh by Brian Catling

A very strange and odd book. There is no real plot as such, and there are an awful lot of different characters to keep track of, and of which there is not much connection between them. One character, Muybridge, seems to be entirely separate from all the others and has absolutely no connection to the …

The Unholy Consult by R Scott Bakker

It’s difficult to review this book. Honestly I’m still not totally sure what happened in certain parts of the book, particularly towards the end. However there is one thing to be said, it is epic, and I mean that in all senses of the word. A lot of questions are answered, things I’ve been wondering about …

The Heart of What Was Lost by Tad Williams

A novella chronicling the flight of the Norns after the battle at the end of the original trilogy. I really enjoyed reading things from a Norn POV, it made a welcome change. Was also good to spend more time with Isgrimmer. Again well written with maybe some hints as to what will happen in the …

To Green Angel Tower by Tad Williams

Another fairly slow burn of a book though unfortunately it felt like the end was kind of rushed. I did enjoy this but to be honest I felt the end was kind of anti-climatic, it all ended a bit too easily. I do enjoy the author’s writing style, yes it’s dense but it’s so descriptive …

Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams

This book definitely suffers from middle child syndrome. After I finished it I realised that nothing much happened, it was basically a travelogue. However I still enjoyed it, there is something nice about the slow unfolding of events. The viewpoint of the series has expanded, Simon is still the main character with the most chapters …
