Book Review – Redemption Point

If you haven’t read the first in this series (Crimson Lake) do yourself a favour and listen to the audio book narrated by Euan Morton. That got me hooked , and now I can’t get enough of Ted Conkaffey, who isn’t the bad guy everyone thinks he is & the just plain crazy Amanda Pharrel.

Book Review – The Black God’s Drums

38118138By P. Djeli Clark

Set in an alternate history 1884 New Orleans, Creeper is a street urchin who witnesses a clandestine meeting between some shady characters and decides she can use the information she witnessed to bribe her way on to an airship’s crew. However she ends up working to prevent an apocalypse with the help of some African deities. There is goddesses, mystical artefacts, airships, Haitian scientists, and a pair of bad-ass nuns. Although there is only a touch over 100 pages, the author manages to pack in a heap of world building that makes me really hope we see more soon!
