Sisters
Book Review

Sisters

Just having finished Fen I was delighted to see that Sisters was up for request on NetGalley. I loved Daisy Johnson’s writing style in Fen, the giver of secrets and revealer of ancient mythologies.

The Hollow Gods
Book Review

The Hollow Gods

I received The Hollow Gods from Netgalley for an honest review.

Fuller, Lovecraft and pirates meet in a wonderful tale of derring do and monstrous presence, brilliantly pulp in its …
