All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries, #1)

The introduction to The Murderbot Diaries is simply great fun!  A refreshing and diverting sci-fi novella with wide appeal, it is a marvellous package of wry humour, suspense and healthy dose of compassion.

Spirit's End (The Legend of Eli Monpress, #5)

Easily one of the most addictive and fun fantasy series I’ve read in recent memory, the Legend of Eli Monpress concluded most satisfactorily, and now occupies my list of favourites.

A new favourite, The Spirit War is a fantastic penultimate volume of the Eli Monpress series, one which just keeps getting better.

The Legend of Eli Monpress (The Legend of Eli Monpress, #1-3)
02, Apr

Rachel Aaron's debut fantasy series is so addictively entertaining and fun that I blasted through all three books in the first omnibus in four days.

King of Ashes (The Firemane Saga, #1)
29, Mar

Feist is back in form as King of Ashes establishes a promising and solid foundation for a completely new saga away from the massive Riftwar Cycle multi-series.

A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #1)
24, Mar

4/5 stars.

A Wizard of Earthsea is an unusually enchanting classic that is simple in form and yet significant in substance.

The Armored Saint (The Sacred Throne, #1)
09, Mar

4.5/5 stars.

A superbly well-crafted gritty story with memorable characters, tight pacing and vivid prose in just over 200 pages, The Armored Saint is one of the best novellas I've ever read.

Last Dragon Standing (Heartstrikers, #5)
03, Mar

5/5 stars.

The Heartstrikers series is a triumph of urban high fantasy that is positively overflowing with heart and magic.  With a conclusion that is so satisfying that it leaves me basking in the afterglow of completing an amazing series, Heartstrikers have sunk its dragon claws into my heart and established itself as my favourite urban fantasy series.
