This book is fresh, inventive, quirky, instinctive, and witty. Set in a genre-bending world – think dystopian sci-fi, steampunk, weird west, with shades of grimdark political court intrigue – filled with some of the most unique and downright strange ideas I’ve read. Truly creative.

Review: Third Front (Dalí Tamareia #3) by E. M. Hamill
Third Front is a fantastic conclusion to this trilogy, leaving some doors ajar which could mean a return for Dalí and her found family in future missions… I would read more from this universe and its characters in a heartbeat.

I thoroughly enjoyed returning on mission with Dalí in this book, so much so that I immediately started reading book three after fininshing the last chapter.
Book Tour/Review: The Last Ranger (Ranger of the Titan Wilds #1) by J.D.L. Rosell
The Last Ranger is a very strong entry into a new world and series. There is so much more that this world has to offer that is evident from this first offering. I’m really excited to see where this series will take us next. A brilliant start!

Review: No Heart for a Thief (Malitu #1) by James Lloyd Dulin
This is a distinguished debut that I found completely engrossing. As a work of fantasy, it is a very promising start to a series that has a lot of potential. I enjoyed the structure with the two timelines. Kaylo’s journey, both in the past and present, is one I want to continue. No Heart for a Thief is a meditative, spiritual journey that will make you stop to think and question – an allegory for our times.
Review: Obsidian: Awakening by Sienna Frost
Obsidian: Awakening is a powerful tale, thoughtfully told. It has deep themes to explore through wonderfully complex and morally grey characters. It is a human tale of survival, an exploration of control of both the self and others. How far will people go to stay true to their duty and beliefs? How much can a person take before they break and become the monster they are fighting? These are some of the fascinating aspects explored in this truly mesmerizing tale. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

Review: Dragon Mage (Rivenworld #1) by M.L. Spencer
Dragon Mage is a book that will appeal to anyone who loves classic epic fantasy. It is filled with adventure, emotion, friendship and magic, set in wondrously imagined world with majestic dragons, and characters you will fall in love with. It can also be read as a standalone, with the story coming to a satisfactory conclusion. But… there is so much scope for more. Aram’s journey has only just begun; I will definitely be going along for the next ride.
