The Hollow Gods
Book Review

The Hollow Gods

I received The Hollow Gods from Netgalley for an honest review. Based in current day North America, it follows Kai, Miya, and Mason as they uncover and unravel the mythology of the Dreamwalker and the cycle of missing girls.

Norse Mythology

Another of those books that’s been adorning my shelves for many months, but Norse Mythology felt like another book for these times.

The Book of Imaginary Beings fits nicely into both categories. Ostensibly a short survey of …

The Maze

Whenever there is a Laurence King book available as a reading copy I jump at it, as their products are always beautiful and so readable, and The Maze was no exception. I’ve always been fascinated by mazes and labyrinth from the moment I read the Theseus and the Minotaur story and would insist on visiting …
