Review: The Widow Queen by Elzbieta Cherezinska

If you are a fan of epic historical fantasy, then The Widow Queen, written by Elżbieta Cherezińska, is a novel that will be worth your time.

Review: The Library of the Dead by T.L. Huchu

T.L. Huchu’s latest novel, The Library of the Dead, is marketed as a combination of Stranger Things and the Sixth Sense. Combine that with the name (I’m pretty sure I will read any fantasy novel that hints at libraries or books), the cover, and the color choices I’ve seen so far, and I never had any doubt about this book.

Talk about a great chance to dive back into the works of somebody you adore! Continue reading

Review: Along the Saltwise Sea by A. Deborah Baker

Along the Saltwise Sea is the second novella in The Up-and-Under series, written by A. Deborah Baker (aka Seanan McGuire). This series started as a children’s book referenced in another one of McGuire’s worlds (Middlegame), but I feel like it has quickly gained a life of its own. Also, before I dive into my review, can we take a moment to appreciate that cover? It’s to die for. Continue reading
