Dune: The Heir of Caladan (The Caladan Trilogy #3) - Kevin J. Anderson, Brian Herbert 7.88   8

In Dune: The Heir of Caladan, the climactic novel in the Caladan trilogy by New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, we step into the shoes of Paul Atreides. A not yet a man in years, he is about to enter a world he could never have imagined.

The story that began with Duke Leto Atreides's rise to power, then continued with the consequences of Lady Jessica’s betrayal, will now conclude with Paul becoming the leader that he needs to be on the way to his pivotal role as Muad’Dib.

Any Dune fan will devour this tale of a legend coming into his own.

The Atlas Six
(The Atlas)
6 / 10

The fire in the ancient Library of Alexandria was not an accident. Instead, the Library burned to protect itself and its dangerous secret: magical books. The Library survived in the form of a society of the same name, and every ten years the society recruits new members. The Atlas Six follows the training of the six newest member candidates, who are among the most talented magicians in the world.

Review: Third Instar by David Gullen

Third Instar by David Gullen cover imageDavid Gullen's Third Instar was published by Eibonvale Press (it's the 7th chapbook the Eibonvale Chapbook Line).

About Third Instar:

Mazehew didn’t like the Grand Parade where the kite-men flew beyond the Edge. He didn’t like the sky beyond the railings, a sky that reached up and out and also down. He didn’t like the utter absence of ground inches from his feet, the way the blue air faded to stars in the evening, up and out and also down. Most of all he didn’t like how the Edge made him feel – small, like nothing. Insignificant.

Third Instar is a vivid, evocative and ultimately dreamlike fantasy novella set in a city on the edge of the world in the most profound sense – a city filled with colour and life, against which David Gullen creates a beautifully universal tale of romance and almost mythical loss.

Review: Star-Spawned: Lovecraftian Horrors & Strange Stories by Mark Howard Jones

Star-Spawned by Mark Howard JonesMark Howard Jones' Star-Spawned: Lovecraftian Horrors & Strange Stories was published by Macabre Ink in March 2022.

About Star-Spawned: Lovecraftian Horrors & Strange Stories:

In these twenty tales of the weird and twisted you will visit temples dedicated to the worship of dark gods spawned under the diseased light of long-dead stars; find yourself lost in damned places where truth and sanity vanish like mist in sunlight; meet strangers who make you pray that all you think you know is wrong; and discover that love is really just another gateway to unending despair.

You may even find confirmation of the dreadful fact that you are what you always feared you might be.

About A Flame of Song:

The cycle of fate turns on.

In the capital of Sontair, still reeling from the recent assassination, Daemi, Frankle and Heather are helping as best they can to retain some semblance of order and control. With them is Wilt, trapped now in cat form, but still connected to Daemi through their shared mind, enabling her to identify and hunt down those servants of the dark that still infest the city.

Far to the east, in the mysterious mountain prison of Pankesh, Higgs has been called back from the wash of the welds and returned to his human body. He finds himself under the control of the Novus, the source of the spreading darkness. The Novus uses weldfarers – those who can ride the welds – to alter events across time, and has been tracking Wilt and Higgs ever since their days in Greystone.

As the Novus gathers his forces and reaches through time and space to twist the world to his bidding the companions must journey across the Eternal Sea to finally confront the dark and face their fate...
