Book Review: The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette De Bodard

Title: The House of Shattered Wings Author: Aliette De Bodard Publishing Date: Aug 28, 2016 by Gollancz I received a copy from the publisher which I voluntarily reviewed. This does not affect my opinion in any way! Goodreads Summray: A superb murder mystery, on an epic scale, set against the fall out – literally – of a war in Heaven. Paris has survived the Great Magicians War – just. Its streets are lined with haunted ruins, Notre-Dame is a burnt-out shell, and the Seine runs black with ashes and rubble. Yet life continues among the wreckage. The citizens continue...

Book Review: Into Everywhere by Paul McAuley

Title: Into Everywhere (The Choice #2) Author: Paul McAuley Publication Date: April 11, 2017 I received a review copy from the publisher Gollancz. This does not affect my opinion in any way!
