woodwardiocom: (Riven Book)

I remain terribly behind on reviews, so brevity is the soul of gettin' it done.

The Burning Realm by Michael Reaves

Sequel to The Shattered World, an imaginative not-derivative-of-Tolkien fantasy. Recommended.

Unbound by Jim C. Hines

The secret that magic comes from books is out, and it's causing oodles of problems. Third in a series, recommended, not least (nor most) for including polyamory.

The Abyss Beyond Dreams by Peter F. Hamilton

I get a bit tired of Hamilton's tendency to include crypto-fantasy in the middle of his space operas, but the creepy reveal towards the end of this one makes up for a lot. Set in a multibook universe, recommended.

Snuff by Terry Pratchett

Far from the best Discworld novel, but I was entertained.

The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim Butcher

Steampunky first in a series of (possibly post-apocalyptic) fantasy, with nicely detailed airship battle tactics. Recommended.
