Shackled Fates is the second volume in the Hanged God trilogy, the story that carries right on from the first. Right back into the action, right back into the tale; the bard strums his guitar and continues the fireside tale of Vikings, their gods, and the impending final battle. Holdt effortlessly writes with a voice that’s whispered from ear to ear, passed down through the histories and into the story we have in front of us; with face-paced action, large-scale battles, and whispers in the wind, we’re transported through the Nine Worlds again on a story that promises to change the fate of them all.
A wildly imaginative urban fantasy!
Wow. Just wow. I had heard good things about The Liar of Red Valley, but to actually read it for myself was something else. I sat down thinking I’d just start it and then it was many hours later and I’d read the vast majority of the book.
The front of the ARC reads:
Do not trust the liar.
Do not go in the river.
Do not cross the King.
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’ve been a big supporter of this book since the start of the year. Something about it drew my attention and I’ve been awaiting my copy ever since. I actually read this the moment it appeared through my letterbox, and then it got passed around the family to much laughter.
Okay, I’m going to be honest right out of the gate, and to spare all our blushes (especially mine) – I’m not a trained or qualified historian. My sole qualification in this area is a GCSE in History, which was all Modern History (WW1 to WW2, if I remember correctly) and therefore far too recent […]
It is that time of year where I’m ramping up my Norse mythology reads in preparation for Spells & Spaceships Norsevember extravaganza. I kicked off a little early this year with Northern Wrath by Thilde Kold Holdt.This is a tale of survival, cunning, and strength amidst the chaos.

Hello everyone and welcome to this month’s attempt at hawking a pile a books at you! You may be wondering why there are so many on this month’s list. First, thank you for noticing. Reading comprehension, ace. Second, there’s just so many great books releasing this month! Truly, it’s unbelievable how many there are and I’ll have you know that I had to leave a TON of great books off the list in order to pare it down to a (somewhat) reasonable level. This list is all killer, no filler. Take a look.
Synopsis Finding work as an artist is hard. Working for a shady government ministry while falling in love with your watcher, who just so happened to kill your sister’s wife, is even harder, not to mention when you’re tasked with rewriting a dragon automaton warmachine that happens to be a pacifist! Jebi is an aspiring […]
Synopsis Red Valley is real boondock country. There’s a Walmart, a dive bar, a diner with a tree growing through it, and a river. There’s also the King. You don’t cross the King. You never, ever, go in the river. Oh, and you don’t trust the Liar … The Liar’s powers allow her to turn […]
I generally tend to love zombie books because I’m such a huge fan of the genre. I am especially happy when it is more focussed on zombie/human conflict rather than the human/human conflict many books fall into. Therefore I was over the moon with Spec Ops Z. Not only is it very much about zombie/human conflict, and not only that, our main characters become zombies themselves. Thinking, intelligent zombies who hunger for human flesh but can control themselves. It’s a twist on a genre I love so much.
