Book Review

New Suns

This is one of the first books I requested from NetGalley and I’ve been so remiss in getting reviews done for the books I’ve requested that I thought I best start now and get on with it.

A Winter’s Promise

The cover image along with the brief blurb in the Bookseller already had me intrigued about A Winter’s Promise and when it came available to read I jumped at the chance. Set in a distant past the world has been shattered in a cataclysm called the Rupture and the world now consists of floating islands …
