I sat down and read through over half of the book in one go, I couldn’t put it down. The prose is beautifully descriptive without being overly flowery. I’d find myself going back and letting certain lines sink in and ruminate before moving on.
Bookshops & Bonedust won’t be published until November 2023, and typically I try to hold reviews until it’s closer to the publish date, however as soon as I saw the approval email come in, I had to drop everything and read it.
Overall, I think this is H.M. Long’s strongest work yet. I’ve been following her on social media for some time, and she has said that she came up with the first idea twenty years ago, and that passion for the story really shines through.
The ending to this book is explosive and it hurts so much, in all the best ways that a book that makes you feel and love the characters does.
Overall I really enjoyed the first installment of The Songs of the Drowned and look forward to continuing on. I’d recommend this for fans of a slower build book with nuanced characters.
Overall, if you’re looking for a quick, fun read, I’d recommend Tread of Angels.
The plot is fast-paced and the prose is so compulsively readable. The world that Dennard has crafted has such an interesting set-up.
I’m eagerly awaiting the continuation of Kaylo and Tayen’s story and No Heart for a Thief is highly recommended from me.
This novella is also a challenging one to review as it deals with grief and I find that while every individual experiences grief and loss throughout their life our experiences are unique. Nevertheless, this novella deserves to land in the hands of more readers and I hope that my recommendation encourages even one person to pick it up.
To begin, I need to quickly mention the absolutely stunning cover and interior artwork that this book had. When I saw this book I immediately knew that this was a Félix Ortiz masterpiece but little did I know that there would be the abundance of interior artwork as well, including in the e-book copy. I am incredibly happy that I have a copy of this book for my shelves.
