Announcement: Improvements to my reviews site

After months of saying I'd do it and letting other things get in the way, I've finally drawn some pictures for my reviews.

Currently reading: The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry (I read Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine in five days earlier in the week) Weekly Word Count: 4851 It's amazing what a change in routine (and a readjustment in priorities) can make.

Betrayed

Originally, I wasn't going to cover sequels in my reviews as I might not have as much to say about them regarding world building. Then, I remembered that all books have to stand on their own, even if they're part of a series, and sequels have the task of developing the world beyond one book's… Continue reading Betrayed

Anno Dracula

This is one of my absolute favourite modern vampire books. Not only does it paint a richly detailed alternate universe but does an excellent job of making vampires seem real.
