Paradigm #1: Paradigm by Ceri A. Lowe – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

Paradigm

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews Paradigm by Ceri A. Lowe, a dystopian Young Adult novel.

This book is proof that you shouldn’t judge things just by what they’re billed as. What could have been a cheap ripoff and cash-in attempt on the popularity of The Hunger Games and Divergent instead is something that shines, and is full of its own originality. The Dystopian Young Adult genre may be overcrowded right now – but Paradigm is something that’s worth checking out.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Examining an entry into the zombie genre, Bellarius details his thoughts on Afflicted Dawn by Gregory Napier.

“While Napier shows he has potential as a writer, Afflicted Dawn makes too many basic errors from the outset to recommend.” - Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Continuing with Anthony Reynolds’ Word Bearers trilogy, Bellarius reviews Dark Disciple.

“An interesting twist for the series with action, horror and xenos aplenty, but a slight step down from its predecessor.” - Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Returning to the ongoing Horus Heresy series, Bellarius gives his analysis on Graham McNeill’s Vengeful Spirit.

“Dozens of potentially great ideas and characters, none of which can be fully realised thanks to the overstuffed plot.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Ahriman: Exile by John French – Book Review [Bellarius]

Ahriman's never looked better. I don't know who did this cover-art but my hat goes off to them.

After much delay, Bellarius gives his thoughts on John French’s tale of the infamous sorcerer in Ahriman: Exile.

“A decent showing of Ahriman taking his first steps on the path of damnation, but not one without a few pitfalls.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Binary by Stephanie Saulter – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

untitled

Shadowhawk takes a look at the sequel to Stephanie Saulter’s fantastic near-future AI debut from last year.

“When a debut is as awesome as Gemsigns was last year, you expect the debut to be even better. Binary doesn’t quite come across as fantastic as its predecessor, but it is still one of the best SF books I’ve read to date. Lots more industrial intrigue and politics this time, which are all just fascinating in the extreme. ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Dirty Magic by Jaye Wells – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Dirty Magic

Shadowhawk takes a look at the first novel in Jaye Wells’ new urban fantasy series from Orbit Books.

“One of the best urban fantasy novels I’ve read to date and also lacking any substantial PNR elements, which was a big plus. This is a police procedural through and through with some great urban fantasy elements mixed in. Highly recommended.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

TheUnNatural-CC1
