Daryl is a 25 year old living in South Wales, UK.
Outside of reading he enjoys ice hockey, live music and Gaming. Basically an all round nerd.
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 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.
Ioth, City of Lights is the latest instalment in D. P. Woolliscroft's Wildfire Cycle series. Despite there being 3 books released, Ioth is book 2 with Tales of Kingshold technically being book 1.5.
