Review: Winters Orbit by Everina Maxwell

****Trigger warnings: Death of a spouse, domestic abuse, physical abuse and interrogation**** One of the hardest things I find with science fiction is making an emotional connection to the characters an author presents.

Review: Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

So I’m a long time reader of Seanan Mcguire. I didn’t get a chance to meet her or attend her panels at World Con in 2019 but I have yet to not enjoy one of her books. I am grossly behind on the Wayward Children series but Middlegame was one of my favourite reads of…

February Wrap Up
