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

maul-lockdown

Shadowhawk takes a look at the latest Star Wars novel, featuring one of the great villains of the setting, Darth Maul.

“A novel with an interesting premise but brought down due to lackluster characterisation and general silliness. This could have been great but is instead mediocre at best.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Ancillary Justice

Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach – Advance Review [Shadowhawk]

Fortune's Pawn

Shadowhawk reviews the first novel in a new series by Rachel Aaron, writing as Rachel Bach, as she tackles military space opera after her popular Eli Monpress adventure fantasy series.

“Its not often I get to use the words stunning and spectacular and superb all in the same sentence for a novel, but Fortune’s Pawn is a novel that deserves all those epithets and more. Its a fantastic tale that reminded me often of the old style of space opera, the fun-loving adventure kind that doesn’t take itself too seriously and focuses on the fun above all else.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
