A self-professed geek and proud of it, I started reading at a tender age and never really stopped until work got in the way for several years. I regained my voracious appetite for books a few years back and then started to enjoy writing down my thoughts. I am more of an emotional/instinctual rather than a critical reader.
Aside from reading, I enjoy outdoor sports (running, hiking, cycling, an occasional frisbee game), photography and travelling.
Conclusions can be tricky, and I've been disappointed by quite a few. Thankfully, The Silver Tide does not belong in that unfortunate category. The denouement of this underrated Copper Cat trilogy was utterly satisfying and even brought a little lump in my throat as I bid farewell to the Black Feather Three to whom I've grown quite attached.
Surprisingly engaging and utterly thrilling, this audio dramatisation of an Alien novel is quite superb.
The Iron Ghost is a strong sequel to The Copper Promise. We have the necessary development of the main characters, whom I have grown to like quite a fair bit. Then there are higher stakes at hand and expanded worldbuilding. And to top it all off, a whole lot more magic is involved in the storytelling.
