The assassin Girton Club-Foot and his master have returned to… Continue reading Book Review: Blood of Assassins by RJ Barker

Where to begin?? Have you heard of Age of Assassins? Surely you have, of Girton Club-Foot? You've heard of the antlers, yes? No? What rock have you been living under since last year?

Under The Pendulum Sun by Jeannette Ng Publisher:… Continue reading Book Review: Under The Pendulum Sun by Jeannette Ng

Book Review: Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

I took the boys down the beach because quite frankly they earned it ok? Where to begin with Nicholas Eames' Gemmell Award Nominated debut novel Kings of the Wyld?
