This is the sequel to Robert J Power's SPFBO finalist book, Spark City, and my overall comment is - it's even better than the first!! The story is a bit tighter, the characters have grown and developed, and the pacing is fast. It's quite long, too,...

Overall, I enjoyed this one, but I probably won't read on in the series. It was a nice change from some of the more epic fantasy I've been reading recently, a futuristic Gossip Girl-type story that focuses on the lead-up to a death that you...

I read Crier's War earlier this year, and as soon as I saw the sequel had been released I picked it up straight away. I really enjoyed the premise of the first book - man-made humans (automas) designed to be smarter and more advanced...

I've had this book on my TBR for AGES and finally got around to reading it. Unfortunately, something about this one didn't quite work for me, and I'm not exactly sure why. The writing was really good, and the book was fast-paced, so I had...
