The Phoenix Exultant: Disappointing sequel

The Phoenix Exultant by John C. Wright I was really disappointed with The Phoenix Exultant, the second novel in John C. Wright’s THE GOLDEN AGE series, especially considering how much I had enjoyed its predecessor, The Golden Age. In many ways The Phoenix Exultant just did not feel like a true continuation of the first […]

Icefire: Older, darker, more complicated

Icefire by Chris d’Lacey Icefire is Chris d’Lacey’s second book in the Last Dragon Chronicles, following up on The Fire Within and continuing the story of David, the Pennykettles (Liz and Lucy), and the clay dragons that are much more than they appear.

All Night Awake by Sarah A. Hoyt I wasn’t expecting a sequel to Ill Met by Moonlight. That novel was complete and satisfactory in itself, so the appearance of a sequel came as a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, I didn’t like All Night Awake quite as much as Ill Met by Moonlight, for several reasons. First, […]

Predator’s Gold: The action keeps rolling

Predator’s Gold by Philip Reeve We Will Unleash a Storm that will Scour the Earth. It had been a while since I’d read Philip Reeve’s first installment in the Hungry City quartet, and so my memories of the events that happened in Mortal Engines were a little hazy. However, nothing could make me forget the […]

Shriek: An Afterword

Shriek: An Afterword by Jeff VanderMeer Shriek: An Afterword is Jeff VanderMeer’s second novel set in his AMBERGRIS cosmology. There are a lot of elements with regards to the book that I want to talk about, so please bear with me. The first is that this is a sequel, yet it’s not. I won’t talk […]

The Dragon Charmer: Love it or hate it

The Dragon Charmer by Jan Siegel There is no middle ground when it comes to Jan Siegel’s novels: you either love them or hate them. Considering I love them, you might want to take this review with a pinch of salt as you may take my advice to read it and find that it is […]
