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

The Oversight by Charlie Fletcher – Advance Review [Bane of Kings]

The-Oversight

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, writes a review of the first novel in The Oversight Trilogy, entitled The Oversight - written by accomplished young adult author Charlie Fletcher. Published by Orbit Books, this gothic historical urban fantasy is set to be released tomorrow, on May 6.

An excellent novel – Charlie Fletcher has certainly crafted one of the better reads of 2014 so far. If you’re a fan of the likes of Neil Gaiman or China Mieville then this is a must read – and with some fascinating prose, this is something that you won’t want to miss.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

All Is Fair by Emma Newman – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

All Is Fair

Shadowhawk reviews the third and final novel in the Split Worlds trilogy.

“Another great read set in the Split Worlds which provides closure to many of the subplots that have run through the trilogy, and is as enjoyable a read as the previous two novels.” ~Shadowhawk, 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

John Golden: Freelance Debugger by Django Wexler – Novella Review [Shadowhawk]

John Golden - Freelance Debugger

Shadowhawk takes a look at the first ever urban fantasy novella from Django Wexler, the start of a new series and published by Ragnarok Publications.

“A great mix of technology and magic, John Golden: Freelance Debugger is a hilarious, fun and action-packed novella.” ~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

Miriam Black #3: The Cormorant by Chuck Wendig – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

TheCormorant-144dpi

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, turns his attention to the latest novel in the urban fantasy  Miriam Black series, following on from Blackbirds and Mockingbird, entitled The Cormorant, written by the prolific author Chuck Wendig. 

“Chuck Wendig once again excels with another awesome look into the kickass character that is Miriam Black – delivering a page-turning thriller that is a must buy for any readers who enjoyed the first two books. Wendig has created a compelling read here, and The Cormorant might just be one of the best books in the series yet.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews Hang Wire, the latest novel by Angry Robot author Adam Christopher (Empire State, The Age Atomic, Seven Wonders), an urban fantasy book that hits shelves January 28 in the USA and on February 6 in the UK.

London Falling by Paul Cornell – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

London Falling

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews London Falling, written by Paul Cornell, creator of fan-favourite Doctor Who episodes Human Nature/The Family of Blood. This London-set Urban Fantasy novel is published by Tor Books in the UK.

“Paul Cornell doesn’t disappoint with the start of what is hopefully a brilliant new series, giving the reader one of the best London-centric Urban Fantasy books yet, and as a result it’s one of the best reads of 2013. This truly is an excellent read.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
