     The third novel in the Malazan Cycle suffers the same highs and lows as its predecessor.  The first half is over-plotted and over-populated, more of an endurance test than an entertaining read.

     Once various subplots unite, for a spectacular midway siege, Erikson shifts up a league and delivers martial action and emotional…

     Too many new faces and places sap momentum in this now sprawling Fantasy series.

     Erikson’s prose has a captivating quality which will win patience from his readership but many sub-plots seem circular and unnecessary.  Characters are absent for several chapters so, by the time they return, you are likely to have forgotten who…

      Forget polite introductions and sedate world-building because Erikson’s opener is a merciless drag through war, politics, questing and magic which may swamp and baffle less dedicated Fantasy fans.

     Gardens of the Moon may be overpopulated and over-plotted but Erikson holds chaos at bay with genius page-turning prose and…

     Ostara (Old High German) or Ēostre (Old English) falls upon 20th March.  It is one of eight ancient Wheel Of The Year festivals denoting seasonal shifts.

     Ostara marks The Vernal (meaning “youthful”) Equinox: the height of Spring.

     Daylight and darkness are balanced at The Equinox, prior to the lengthening of days: a…

     Margo Lanagan has an innate understanding of the dark and sensual undercurrents of Faerie; something seldom seen since the heyday of Fantasy pioneer Angela Carter.

     In Tender Morsels Lanagan delivers a sublime insight into the diverse, contradictory, complex and myriad aspects of femininity, without ever straying into…
