“And it was done; I no longer had a face. I wasn’t Constanter; I was Silverlegs, and in that moment I felt like I could take on an entire army.”
A Roman style setting, vicious, well written battle scenes, epic sword fights. A female mc who refuses to be used and abused. Hell yes. Fantasy has been spoiling me lately with some fantastic books and Silverlegs by Camilla Monk is another top notch read. (How badass is the title and cover by the way!!)

Elephants 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.

I went op shopping last weekend for the first time in what felt like forever and picked up a couple of books. I was lucky enough to be sent an arc by an author for review and I got approved for a book or two via NetGalley, one of which is the second book in a series, so I have to grab the first book in the next couple of days.

Aaah, paranormal romance. This genre is my fairy floss. I love it and tend to overindulge and then avoid it for a while, before coming back and repeating the cycle.
