The Magician’s Land (The Magicians #3) by Lev Grossman – Book Review [Lady Salvatore]


Lady Salvatore got one of her greatest wishes:
an advanced copy of
The Magician’s Land,
the final book in a trilogy by Lev Grossman.

“Lev Grossman ties up his spellbinding The Magicians trilogy in a manner worthy of the highest praise!” – Lady Salvatore, 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

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Vol. 1 by Katie Cook and Andy Price – Comic Review [Bellarius]


Responding to demands, Bellarius examines another Hasbro franchise with the first volume of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic by Katie Cook and Andy Price.

“I’m really not the right person to review this.” – Bellarius, 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

Constantine, Vol 1: The Spark and the Flame by Jeff Lemire, Ray Fawkes and Renado Guedes – Comic Review [Bellarius]


Getting his hands on another DC Comics trade paperback, Bellarius gives his thoughts on the revamped Constantine series by Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes.

“An entertainingly dark tale which fully returns John to the world of superheroics. It’s just a shame what we lost in order to get it.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

The Seers by Julianna Scott – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

The Seers

Shadowhawk reviews the sequel by Julianna Scott to last year’s YA debut novel The Holders, an urban fantasy with an Irish mythology twist.

“A good novel, but the ending is a bit rushed and doesn’t quite have the climax I was looking for. Still, it is a good follow-up to its predecessor, which I really enjoyed.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 02.02.2014

Red Sonja Vol.1 Queen of Plagues

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for February.

“A mix of Marvel comics here, with All-New Invaders not being quite up to par but the latest chapter of Revolutionary War is indeed quite impressive. ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Scott Lobdell misfires yet again with Teen Titans, proving that this series is deserving of its cancellation whilst Gail Simone works wonders with the first Volume of  Red Sonja.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

The Adversary by Erin M. Evans – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

The Sundering 03 The Adversary

Shadowhawk takes a look at the third book in Wizards of the Coast’s mega-event The Sundering, and also the third book in Erin M. Evans’ Brimstone Angels series.

“Farideh and Havilar return for another amazing adventure as they finally get caught up in the adventures of The Sundering event and everything has a much higher appreciable stake. Some excellent characterisation this time around and some great action too.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

A Kingdom Besieged by Raymond E. Feist – Book Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk takes a look at the first novel in Raymond E. Feist’s final trilogy of the great Midkemian Saga. This is also the fourth review in his Advent Review series and you can check out the full list here.

“With this book, I returned to the world of Midkemia after a long, long time and what I found was that the setting was just as captivating and enthralling as it was in the first book that started it all off. This book has my seal of approval and recommendation.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
