“O, young fool!’ said the priest a moment later. “You ought to be Locked away at once in the Narrenturm, the Tower of Fools!

The Trials of Koli (Rampart Trilogy #2) by M.R. Carey – Book Review

I read The Book of Koli last year not knowing what to expect. I had heard Mike Carey was a well known comic book writer and wrote the critically acclaimed novel The Girl with all the Gifts.

Priest of Bones by Peter McLean – Review

“Men who have been through Hell together tend to stay together, if they can.“ Priest of Bones by Peter McLean was a dark, gritty, action packed read that had me glued from the very first page right to the end.
