Book Review: Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark

Having read and loved Clark's Cairo novellas earlier this year, I was so incredibly excited to read an advance copy of his upcoming novella, Ring Shout. Although it is very different in terms of tone and setting, Clark's newest story is an incredibly powerful horror tale.

Book Review: Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott

I'll be honest, "gender-swapped Alexander the Great retelling set in space" was all I needed to know about Unconquerable Sun when it originally crossed my path -- it immediately got added to the "most anticipated books of the year" list. Having only read, but absolutely adored, one book by Kate Elliott before, I knew she'd be able to pull of a book with such an epic scope.

Book Review: The Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky

A new book from Adrian Tchaikovsky, one of my favourite authors, is always an exciting event. The Doors of Eden was a book that immediately caught my attention with its stunning cover and intriguing concept. I had sky-high expectations for this book, and I am so pleased to say thatthey were absolutely met! The Doors of Eden is an incredibly accessible, fun, and thought-provoking science fiction story with Tchaikovsky's signature twist.

Book Review: The Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

I’ve been struggling with YA fantasy for the past year or so, however I wanted to give it another try while in quarantine. I dusted off my copy of The Descendant of the Crane -- one of my most highly anticipated 2019 releases that I never managed to read (oops), which is coming out in the UK in June. It turned out to be the perfect escapist read filled with gorgeous world-building, fun characters, and more twists and turns than I could have ever anticipated!
