Book Review – The Bear and the Nightingale

Cover image for The bear and the nightingale / Katherine Arden.

By Katherine Arden

If you like fantasy but want a changeup in the mythology this book is for you! Set in medieval Russia, this dark fairy tale takes inspiration from Slavic mythology, revealing a magical world as terrifying as it is inviting. It’s the first in the Winternight trilogy but can easily be read as a stand alone.

Book Review – The Gutter Prayer

By Gareth Hanrahan

The Gutter Prayer is an exciting new debut fantasy novel. Cari is a drifter come thief who is betrayed by the leader of the Thieves Guild while on a job. After being arrested and escaping Cari’s world becomes even more dangerous as she starts seeing visions that are granted through a link with a divine entity, and discovers a conspiracy dating back hundreds of years that could destroy the city. Hanrahan has created an incredibly dark, complex and detailed world of which this should be just the first amazing story.
