"A slightly different offering in that the urban fantasy action takes place in Cardiff, Wales. As I mused to most of the action in the US it took a while to settle into the differences (especially as I know Cardiff!) but I found it fun, believable and" Read more of this review »

The Crane War by Graeme Rodaughan
“If you have not confronted true horrors, understood evil, suffered hopelessness and despair, found faith, and made yourself completely accountable for your own choices, actions and outcomes, then I can guarantee that any acceptance you pretend to have will be as brittle and temporary as a snowball in the middle of summer.”
