Book Review: Slaver’s Bane

Slaver’s Bane had every element of fantasy I could hope for in a powerfully moving story. It was a grand tale that moved quickly making it hard to put down. I needed to know what happened on the next page.

Go Hex Yourself: A Book Review

This book kept me entertained and intrigued, from the giggle-inducing first page to the last, the fun twists on romantic tropes to vivid world-building and visceral settings. I loved every twist and turn, every silly, bizarre, and funny coincidence, and the oddity of the family in question.

Buried Treasure

It was full of old glass bottles, vases, broken plates and jugs all remnants from long ago – an old village landfill full of rubbish, now part of my garden.
