fantasy book reviews science fiction book reviewsJesse Bullington: I’ve been working on top secret clown business, as per my usual modus operandi. The most I’m willing to say about my percolating projects is that any readers who have been hoping to see me try my hand at a second-world fantasy instead of historically-set ones may be in luck… or maybe not, only time will tell for sure!Violette Malan fantasy book reviews The Mirror Prince, Shadowlands

Violette Malan: My latest fantasy novel, Shadowlands was released in August, and I’ve just had a new, two-book deal sorted out, also with DAW. I’m about half way through the first book of that two-book set. It’s a bit of a departure for me, as it’s a brand new world.

Read any good books lately?

fantasy book reviews Judith Tarr The Hound and the Falcon 1. The Isle of Glass 2. The Golden Horn 3. The Hounds of GodPati Nagle: I’ve just finished reading The Isle of Glass, book one of Judith Tarr‘s THE HOUND AND THE FALCON series. I loved it! Ready to gobble up the rest of the series. If you like Medieval history, church history, England, and/or magic, this is for you!urban fantasy novel review Kalayna Price Alex Craft 1. Grave Witch 2. Grave Dance 3. Grave Memory

Rachel Aaron: I finished Kalayna Price‘s third ALEX CRAFT book, Grave Memory, a few weeks ago and I’m still recovering from the emotional rollercoaster. I loved it of course, but still, emotional! If you like your Urban Fantasy imaginative and romantic, Kalayna’s books are not to be missed. And (while this isn’t a book) I also re-watched the anime Moribito: Guardian of the Sacred Spirit, and I really can’t recommend this series enough. It’s quiet and beautiful with an incredibly strong and mature female main character. Oh, and the fights are gorgeous and imaginative. Add in a unique and well thought out fantasy plot and you’ve got something that must be watched.
