Book review – The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence (spoiler free)

So, I’ve finished The Girl and the Stars, book 1 of the Book of Ice series by Mark Lawrence. And it turns out… all his series are connected.

March 2022 – Reading and writing

Hello everyone. How are you? The news has been bleak in Europe. I’ve found everything about the war in Ukraine to be absolutely heartbreaking. The news hasn’t been easy to watch and at times it’s been difficult to write and read. It’s some solace that ordinary people have been donating and doing what they canContinue reading “March 2022 – Reading and writing”

Gurzil by I, Anonymous – Book Review (spoiler free)

Gurzil is both very ambitious and highly imaginative – linking characters from all over a collapsed Roman Empire.

Sword in the Storm by David Gemmell and links to Irish mythology

I’ve heard so much about David Gemmell over the years. Either through book recommendations, or through reading (and enjoying) authors who had been nominated for the award set up in his name. However, rather embarrassingly, I’d never made my way to reading any of his books. When a friend of mine discussed The Rigante seriesContinue reading “Sword in the Storm by David Gemmell and links to Irish mythology”

The Justice of Kings – Book Review

How can I describe this book? I’d say it’s a sexier The Name of the Rose – with less monks – and with some cool fantasy magic. The narrator of the book is Helena, an apprentice to Konrad Vonvalt. Through her eyes, we see how important events unfold. However, despite Helena, being the main pointContinue reading “The Justice of Kings – Book Review”
