A thrilling page turner of a novella that succeeds in giving you dragons, betrayals, world building and really interesting characters within 4 POV chapters. Wow, this book is bloody brilliant!

Of Honey and Wildfires – Review

A delightfully unique read – a gaslamp fantasy western – full of beautiful prose, immersive imagery and character relationships that pull at your heartstrings.

Windborn – Review

A very competent Norse fantasy debut that makes you care about the protagonist and brings a fresh flavour to the genre. I really enjoyed this Norse inspired world from Alex S Bradshaw that brings a real fresh twist to the largely Vikings-inspired genre.

10 Reasons you might want to play Total War: Warhammer

I’m a big fan of empire building strategy games, starting first with Age of Empires II when I was around 8 yrs old, followed by many others. I went from RTS (real time strategy) to turn based strategy with Civ Revolution before moving onto Medieval II Total War and Empire Total War. This changed everything.Continue reading “10 Reasons you might want to play Total War: Warhammer”
