***Trigger warning for colonialism, sexism, grief, death of a spouse, mention of child loss and kidnapping*** Possible spoilers for the first book. We’re back with Lady Trent!

Review: A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett

Possible mild spoilers for earlier Discworld books, the Witches ones in particular and the previous novel. Welcome back to the Discworld project! So once again I had a brain that was a wee bit melted from work, life, a weekend without electricity or running water (please don’t ask) and some other factors. Stressed, as you…

Review: A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

It’s not often I go back to a series I abandoned years ago. I generally carry on with whatever series have my attention, finish them or go looking for new ones. Especially when it comes to SFF and the constant influx of new, exciting voices are always coming in to the genres. But I’ve been…

Review: Half-Off Ragnarok by Seanan McGuire

Over the year, I’ve been slowly reading my way through Seanan McGuire’s Incryptid series and it’s really been a gateway for me back into urban fantasy. I sadly couldn’t get to this book, the third in the series, until now just due to life, work and being a human. While my opinion of the last…

Review: Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project and the mess that is my emotions. I’ve been reading Terry Pratchett’s work for a while now and this project is going nearly 2 years. I’ve come to expect certain levels of gut punches but this one hit in a different way. ‘Be a MAN in the City Watch!…

Review: Deathless by Catherynne M.Valente

So if it’s something I love, is a weird, polarising book. All the better if it’s something of a retelling or incorporates elements of folklore and stories past. I generally go out of my way to find them and not until I moved earlier this year did I realise that Deathless was one of those…
