Silverlegs: 1 - Seed of Rage by Camilla Monk - Book Review 14, Aug

Silverlegs is the first installment in Camilla Monks Seed of Rage Series. It's a book heavily influenced by Ancient Rome with a deep Grimdark twist to it. We follow our MC Constanter, a girl who escapes a life of abuse and misery, only to find herself in an army of mercenaries that has a similar attitude towards women. Her only way to survive is to pretend to be  a man and hope that nobody finds out about her secret.

This was the first Grimdark book I've read for quite a while. I must admit, it was the perfect book after the recent reading slump I've had. Anyway, here's my thoughts on Silverlegs .

Dragonslayer (The Dragonslayer #1) by Duncan M. Hamilton - Book Review 04, Aug

3.5/5 Stars

Dragonslayer is the first book in a new trilogy by Duncan M. Hamilton. It's also the first book I've read by Hamilton. Based in a land where dragons are long forgotten and haven't been seen for centuries. That is until a dragon is spotted terrorising the countryside. The man called up to deal the issue is Guillot Villerauvais, a famous warrior who now spends his time drinking himself to death. Can he become the hero he once was.

The Spider (Under The Northern Sky #2) by Leo Carew - Book Review 08, Jul

4/5 Stars

 

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.
