Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the latest tie-in mini-series for Marvel’s Spider-Verse event.

“Fans of Spider-Man will find something to love here. It might not be essential to the main events of Spider-Verse, but that doesn’t stop it from being great fun to read.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

The57LivesofAlexWayfare

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, covers The Fifty-Seven Lives of Alex Wayfare by M.G. Buehrlen, published by Angry Robot imprint Strange Chemistry and released on March 4 2014. It’s a young adult novel that deals with time travel, and is the first in the Alex Wayfare series.

“I never expected The Fifty-Seven Lives of Alex Wayfare to be as good as it was. It took me completely by surprise and turned out to be quite possibly one of the best novels from Strange Chemistry books to date. Forget popular books like The Hunger Games & Twilight, M.G. Buehrlen’s debut novel is something that every young adult fan should read.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
