A satisfying conclusion to a great series

I’m really nervous about final books of series as they can either finish the series perfectly or destroy the whole thing, and you don’t know which the book is going to be until you are almost halfway through. Thankfully, this book is one of those wonderful final books that...

The book should be pressed into the hands of everyone who loves a great fantasy novel

The perfect book for when you need a little absurdity in your life.

I must be completely honest right up front – I’m a huge fan of Gail Carriger’s. I adored her Parasol Protectorate series. It was one of the most inventive and funny fantasy series I have read in a long, long time. When she started the Finishing School series, she...

Sarah Waters for the younger reader

This book was an easy read and I enjoyed that the events of the present were broken up by chapters exploring the past. It was a really good format for this kind of book. The premise was interesting enough to grab my attention and the events in the book...
