"What if you were destined to be a villain?"

Master of Sorrows is the first in The Silent Gods series and an absolute sensational début novel. Early on in this book I was reminded why I love reading and specifically the fantasy genre. So here's everything I loved about Justin Call's Master of Sorrows.

Sowing (The Purification Era #1)
17, Apr

Sowing is the first book in The Purification Era series by Angie Grigaliunas. Although its labelled as YA, I would put it down as more of a Grimdark-ish fantasy. Its definitely more adult that YA. Set in a dystopian world on the brink of war, we follow two sisters who are completely different from each other. One is a rebel and the other is the perfect civilian, well perfect according to the power obsessed Hulcondans.

A Time Of Blood (Of Blood and Bone #2)
04, Apr

5/5 Stars

“This world is full of one blood-feud or another, an endless cycle.”

A Time of Blood is the second book in the phenomenal new series Of Blood and Bone by John Gwynne. I didn't think it was possible to get better than the Faithful and The Fallen but somehow John Gwynne has improved even more and gifted us readers with what is proving to be an absolute masterclass of a series.

Aching God was a tricky one for me. Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the beginning and the last 25% of the book, I was slightly disappointed by what happens in between. The majority of reviews I have read mention the similarities to Dungeons and Dragons. I've never played Dungeon and Dragons which might be one of the reasons I didn't enjoy it as much as most people. So here's my thoughts on Mike Shel's Aching God.

Tales of Kingshold is book 1.5 of the wildfire Cycle series, containing short stories, novelettes, letters and some notes on magic from the infamous wizard, Jyuth.
