The Absinthe Earl by Sharon Lynn Fisher

I always forget that I enjoy historical fiction, its not a genre I automatically gravitate towards. But when I saw The Absinthe Earl pop up on NetGally, the cover grabbed my attention and then the synopsis sucked me right in; A historical fantasy, set in Ireland in the 1800’s, full of mythology, faeries and romance. Yes please. Continue reading “The Absinthe Earl by Sharon Lynn Fisher”

Meet me in the future: Stories by Kameron Hurley

Meet me in the future by Kameron HurleyElephants and Corpses was my very first introduction to Kameron Hurley’s writing several years back when Tor had it on their site. It was a first class story that made a lasting impression, yet its only in the last year that I have started buying and reading more of Hurley’s work. I sit back now and want to kick myself. So of course when I saw this on NetGalley I hit request as fast as I could and then put everything else on the backburner as soon as I was approved, even though I had a couple of months before it’s release day.

Quick Fire Book Tag

I saw this tag over on Don Jimmy Reviews page and decided to give it a go

1. E-Book or physical book?
At the moment I’m on an e-book binge, which has been inspired by the SPFBO5. I’m smashing through the self published books I picked up last year.

2. Paperback or hardback?
Paperback. Unless of course it’s a special edition, but I don’t often read those. I just like them because they are pretty and with certain authors I’m obsessive and must have everything. Continue reading “Quick Fire Book Tag”

The Heart Of Stone by Ben Galley

#UltimateBlogTour Book Review

 

Heart of Stone Banner 2

Heart of Stone by Ben GalleySynopsis – Merciless. Murderer. Monster. He has been called many names in his time.
Built for war and nothing else, he has witnessed every shade of violence humans know, and he has wrought his own masterpieces with their colours. He cared once, perhaps, but far too long ago. He is bound to his task, dead to the chaos he wreaks for his masters.
Now, he has a new master to serve and a new war to endure. In the far reaches of the Realm, Hartlund tears itself in two over coin and crown. This time he will fight for a boy king and a general bent on victory.
Beneath it all he longs for change. For something to surprise him. For an end to this cycle of warfare.
Every fighter has a last fight. Even one made of stone. Continue reading “The Heart Of Stone by Ben Galley”
