Cover Reveal!

Edge of EvilToday I am crazy excited because I’m doing a cover reveal for one of my favourite people of the moment! Mary Fan released Starswept earlier this year, a book that is in my top reads of the year, & on May 15th next year she’ll be releasing the first book in another series; Flynn Nightsider & The Edge of Evil (which will be published by Crazy 8 Press)!

I absolutely love this cover, which was designed by Streetlight Graphics, because there’s a woman of colour on the cover, & it obviously sets the atmosphere for what I’m sure is going to be an incredible dark fantasy.

Keep reading for the book’s synopsis & the links for GoodReads & two prequels!

Amy has previously released the page-turning Ride Every Stride & is currently working on her first YA fantasy series (I’ve read the first book & it’s wonderful). This is Amy’s story…

Fools & Mortals by Bernard Cornwell

Fools & Mortals


I’m sure there’s many that would agree with me when I say that Bernard Cornwell is one of the best historical writers of current times, so when I was approved to review his newest book Fools & Mortals I genuinely couldn’t believe it! Fools & Mortals didn’t disappoint, it was funny, witty & told a brilliant story; & I cannot wait to read it again.

I was sent an eARC of this book by Harper Collins
in return for an honest review.

This book contains forceful kissing, flippant discussions of
rape scenes within plays, hints at childhood sexual abuse & details of animal abuse.
