The penultimate chapter of the Heartstrikers series was all kinds of awesome. Right now, I can safely say that this is my current favourite urban fantasy series. I just love the story and its characters, compounded with great worldbuilding and mythology.
If this was a one-sentence review, all I would say is that I am so glad that I don't have to wait another full year to immerse myself in this wonderful tale again.
Spell or High Water is a good follow-up to Off to Be the Wizard. Admittedly, a bit of the novelty factor from the first book did start to wear off and I find this volume to be weaker but the narrative retained its enjoyable comedic tone.
Fool Moon started to show promising signs of improvement over the first book, even though most existing fans indicate that the series really only get better from Book 3 or 4 onwards.
A delightfully charming story that is a unique blend of science fiction and fantasy, Off to Be the Wizard will satisfy geeks who secretly (or not-so-secretly) wish they can be a wizard. I personally found it brilliant in its simplicity and originality.
The Grey Bastards is a worthy winner of last year’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off. An original tale of valour, loyalty and friendship told from the perspective of half-breeds between humans and orcs, it was well-written and entertaining with loads of vulgarity.
