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.

Book Review – Steelheart

By Brandon Sanderson (Book 1 of the Reckoners)

The Calamity came 10 years ago and the Epics came with it. They were supposed to save mankind, but now they control it. No one fights the epics. No one, except the Reckoners. David, an ordinary kid who saw his father murdered by Steelheart during his coup tracks down the legendary underground resistance and joins the fight against the Epics. A great twist on superheroes, perfect for fans of The Boys and Vicious (V.E. Schwab).
