I Was A Teenage Weredeer is a rather light, fun read with pop cultural references from Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Buffy and many others fan probably will deerly love and enjoy. Those who like YA will find this an enjoyable read with a snarky heroine, several supernatural species and a mystery that holds a few twists.
Some Distant Sunrise by Elliott Downing
Some Distant Sunrise is a powerfully emotional, dark tale of addiction, second chances, choices and life. One the writing makes even more real, where you can almost feel the needle’s cold, metallic touch on your arm, the biting cold of the night and feel the pressure of the world as it closes on you, taste the desperation in the air.
And Then There Were Crows by Alcy Leyva
Then There Were Crows is a fast paced, enjoyable read – if you have a certain kind of humor and don’t mind some violence here and there. This is a rather dark, horroresque urban fantasy with unique characterisation and promising ideas. With some improvements here and there (editing, writing – see my complaints above) this series can grow into something good and worthy of attention all fans of horror, dark fantasy, urban fantasy and everyone in between who like their story with a good measure of snark and violence.
Broken Meats by David Hambling
You’d think occultism, chinese culture and their ‘secret’ societies and Jack the Ripper makes a unusual mix. They do. And still, it works and that’s what makes Broken Meats such an enjoyable read.
Song by Jesse Teller
Song is an action driven dark fantasy with a medieval like setting, mages fighting for revenge, for the nation, for everything worth figthing for.
Kingshold by D. P. Woolliscroft
If you like your book heavy with political intrigues and schemes, a few monsters here and there with some other fantasy creatures (strawberry blowing pyxies!) appearing, spiced with a little magic, then don’t look more, Kingshold is for you!
Paternus: Rise of Gods by Dyrk Ashton
It’s action packed, funny, bloody, intense and highly entertaining.
Knee-Deep in Grit: Two Bloody Years of Grimdark Fiction by Adrian Collins
An anthology which is hard to put down and a must read for grimdark lovers. But be warned: it will leave you with a feeling of uncleannes and questions you don’t want to answer.
The Elder Ice by David Hambling
“If you are ready to face a new kind of truth about our world and what lays under the ice of Antarctica, then go ahead, and read this book!”
Hex and the City by Simon R. Green
My review of the 4th book in the Nightside series and the last one for a while. Regarding the Nightside, that is. I grew tired of this series 🙁
