Crash by Guy Haley – Book Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk takes a look at the latest novel from Guy Haley for Solaris Books.

“One of the best science fiction novels I’ve read to date, Crash perfectly captures the idea of life at the frontier, one driven by economics and social change. Fascinating is the word that comes to mind.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Hush by James Maxey – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

Dragon Apocalypse 02 Hush

Shadowhawk reviews the second novel in the Dragon Apocalypse trilogy from Solaris Books.

“James Maxey is a freaking genius. I want more. Hush is a perfect sequel to Greatshadow and it has one hell of a cliffhanger ending.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Dangerous Waters by Juliet E. McKenna – Book Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk reviews the first novel in the Hadrumal Crisis series from Solaris Books.

“Outwardly a traditional fantasy story about mages and pirates and nobility, Dangerous Waters is far more than that and there’s a strong undercurrent of political deviousness in the book, which helps to set it apart from others in the genre.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Ack-Ack-Macaque by Gareth Powell – Book Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk reviews the latest from Gareth Powell as he tackles the madcap adventures of a cigar-chomping monkey.

“Too much damn good fun, and far too irresistible of a read.” ~Shadowhawk

Releasing Tomorrow: Ack-Ack-Macaque 2000AD Strip by Gareth Powell


Gareth L. Powell’s latest novel from publisher Solaris Books, Ack-Ack-Macaque, launches tomorrow at Forbidden Planet in London (on 179 Shaftesbury Avenue; 6.00-7.00 pm UTC). Coinciding with the release of the book is a comic strip for the popular 2000AD monthly magazine, a prequel titled “Indestructible“. Prog 2013 is an end-of-the-year 100-page bumper issue, so it’s even more of an awesome thing than it normally would be. The novel itself is one I’m looking forward to reading and this comic is just gravy for that! I think it’s about time that I got around to reading some Gareth Powell. The previews of the comic I’ve read are definitely ace! Click after the break to see what you can find in the comic strip.

Age of Aztec by James Lovegrove – Book Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk reviews the fourth novel in the bestselling Pantheon series, this time dealing with a frightening alternate history in which the Aztecs spread out from Mexico and conquer the entire world.

“It’s very rare to find a novel packed to the brim with heart-pumping action, laugh out loud humour, and a protagonist who wants cake. Greatshadow is a brilliant book. ~The Founding Fields

Babylon Steel by Gaie Sebold – Book Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk reviews Gaie Sebold’s debut novel for Solaris Books, the first in a new series.
