Ink, Iron, And Glass Review: Travel To A World With Scriptology, Mechanists, and Alchemy

I enjoyed Ink, Iron, and Glass! It comes off as a bit of a quieter historical fantasy, but it promises nonstop adventure and a cast of delightful characters that work together to pretty much save the world.

Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon Review: Blame the government for everything

Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon Review: Blame the government for everything

For everyone else however, you have been warned. Take Back the Skies has a very feminist message throughout, with […]
