The Spider is the second book in Leo Carew's Under the Northern Sky series. The spider picks up exactly where The Wolf ended. The book is split into three parts, The North, The South and Lundunceaster, all following the Black Lords plans to invade the south and Bellamus' plans to wipe out the Anakim. If invading the south wasn't enough, The Black Lord has to deal with an assassination at the Anakim School to the North. on top of this, Roper has to convince the giants of Unhierea to fight alongside the Anakim to finally obliterate the Southerners. So, no pressure.
Ioth, City of Lights is the latest instalment in D. P. Woolliscroft's Wildfire Cycle series. Despite there being 3 books released, Ioth is book 2 with Tales of Kingshold technically being book 1.5. I thoroughly enjoyed the previous two books but this book is in a league of its own. So here's my thoughts in a bit more detail.
Ivy Gamble is a private investigator whose usual gigs are catching out cheating husbands or insurance frauds. She's good at what she does and enjoys what she does but that's all about to change. The headmaster of the school her sister teaches at has an offer she cannot refuse. A murder case. But this isn't any ordinary high school. it's a high school for mages. But unlike her sister, Ivy is just an ordinary person with absolutely no powers whatsoever and has always lived in her sisters shadow. This is her chance to prove herself.
