Blog Tour: Far From the Light of Heaven by Tade Thompson

Good day to you all fellow readers. I hope you all had a fab Halloween! I’m absolutely thrilled to present you my review for this fantastic blog tour for Far From the Light of Heaven by Tade Thompson! The colony ship Ragtime docks in the Lagos system, having traveled light-years from home to bring thousands…

Review: Leviathans Wake by James S.A Corey

***Trigger warnings for body horror, gore, blood loss, gun violence, alcoholism and genocide.*** I recently realised when looking at my shelves that a lot of the science fiction I read tends to be standalone, trilogies or companion series. The Expanse series (both books and show) has been on my radar for a long time so…

Review: The Ikessar Falcon by K.S Villoso

Mild spoilers ahead for The Wolf of Oren Yaro. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since I read and reviewed The Wolf of Oren Yaro. I can distinctly remember it being the first book I read on my first annual leave of the pandemic and it utterly taking over my brain for a…

Review: For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten

***Content warnings for blood letting, self harm/cutting, child and parental neglect, gore, death of a parent and more listed on the authors site here*** It’s been a while since I dropped everything to read a book that just arrived in the post that same day. But there is a lot to be said when that…

Review: The Unbroken by C.L Clark

***Trigger warnings: Gore, attempted rape off page, colonialism, colonial violence, torture and rape threats. Also here on the authors site*** I’m calling it now, this is one of the best damn books of 2021. Not just in SFF but overall. I always find it hard to put into coherent words how a book I love…

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. It’s one of the genres I do find myself coming into and facing more morally grey characters who I typically still enjoy…

Blog Tour: The Black Coast by Mike Brooks

Welcome back everyone. So happy to be reviewing a book that is likely going to be one of the best fantasy books I’ve read this year. Today is my stop on the Compulsive Readers blog tour for The Black Coast by Mike Brooks! The Black Coast is the start of a series filled with war-dragons,…

Review: The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold

Talk about books being overdue. I’ve been intending on reading this for almost a year now and then pandemic. I have long been a reader of Urban Fantasy but I did drift away in my late teens for lack of diversity in many areas of the genre. This was before I discovered Rivers of London…

Review: The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow

Every year since I was 3, I used to dress up as a witch for Halloween. In true Irish 90’s Halloween fashion, it was usually a dodgy latex nose, a pointed hat and a black bin liner over my clothes. I loved it. When I was 23, finished college and totally lost, I turned back…

Review: The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart

This year has been, to put it nicely, a lot. Reading is hard, existing is a hell of a lot of effort and I have accepted that pesto is the key to my sanity. However, this hasn’t stopped the sheer amount of amazing SFF books that are being bestowed on us in these trying times…
