Bring the Fire by Craig Schaefer

Bring the Fire, being true to its title brings a fiery end to The Wisdom's Grave trilogy. We get all the answers and then some more, action and heroic battle. If you already got this far, then you can be damn sure you'll enjoy the hell out of endgame.

Tales of Ioth by D.P. Woolliscroft

This review ended up to be quite long, so let me just wrap it up. I've been really impressed by the quality of the content in Tales of Ioth. Don't get me wrong, Woolliscroft presented exactly what I expected of him and then some more. These stories not only give us a better picture of the characters we already know, but also we get to know Alfaria and the Alfjarun culture a bit more. If you like the Wildfire Cycle, then you definitely shouldn't miss Tales of Ioth and all these brilliant adventures.

Exile by Martin Owton

This was a nice comfortable fantasy read that entertains without being too predictable. It's worth checking out if you are looking for something on the noble bright edge of the genre.

Camelot by Giles Kristian

Overall, I have mixed feelings about Camelot. There were aspects I enjoyed but I also felt underwhelmed at the end. Lancelot definitely put the bar high and I don't think Camelot was able to live up to it. Even so, if you enjoyed Lancelot, I don't see why you shouldn't also read Camelot. It has some nice - if a bit predictable - twists, battles, backstabbing, drama. Underneath it all, Camelot is the story about dreams, about unyielding loyalty and the notion that you never should give up.

The Chosen by Jakob Tanner

This was really fast-paced, it’s entertaining and the POV character, Clay has a likeable voice which makes him easy to root for. I enjoyed how fun it was and all the nice touches that made it feel like an actual game.

The Narrows by Travis M. Riddle

This isn’t the coming age story that you see so often in fantasy; this is what comes after that. It’s all the stuff that hits you when you realize you’ve grown-up and moved on from some of the people who used to know you the best, and they from you. It’s also a story about coming to terms with the regrets of those lost friendships and the grief and that anger that comes from death and loss. Basically, it’s about moving on and what gets left behind in the process.

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

If you are looking for a lighthearted romcom and don't want to think too much, The Flatshare is a perfect pick me up book. With loveable characters - there is a lovely, mishevious little girl, and a hippie older lady who happens to be a rebel -, heavy topics and a budding romance with laugh out loud moments. Beth O'Leary's debut novel is definitely worth a read.

Kitsune by Nicolette Andrews

I don’t mean to sound like I only have complaints - there is a lot to love about Kitsune, and though the story might need a little ironing out here and there, it was a very cool retelling of The Little Mermaid. This would be worth checking out if you are at all interested in retellings, or just looking for some fun stories involving yokais.

Lancelot by Giles Kristian

As others said before me, Lancelot is definitely an incredible book everyone should read. A timeless tale in a new light you won’t forget anytime soon. What would you sacrifice for love? 

Blight Marked by Josh Erikson

Blight Marked sets the bar one step higher yet and though the story concludes nicely, it also sets up the next installment to be something we can look forward to. Blight Marked is a fast, witty and emotional roller-coaster ride and I can't wait to see what the next stop will bring.
