The-Fourth-Gwenevere

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings” reviews John James’ The Fourth Gwenevere, a novel dealing with the topic of the Arthurian Legend, and published by the awesome Jo Fletcher Books.

“An original, witty and compelling take on Arthurian Legend that you won’t have seen before. Whilst a little slow to start, John James’ The Fourth Gwenevere is a must for fans of similiar stories and comes recommended.” ~Bane of Kings, 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

Superman-Doomed-01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the first issue of Superman: Doomed as Superman takes on Doomsday in a reimagining of sorts of the classic, epic story Death of Superman.

“Rushed story, rushed art, rushed ending. This was, quite frankly, a mess.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

If you want to see a fight between Superman and Doomsday, then you’ve come to the right place.” ~Bane of Kings, 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
