It’s been months since I’ve done one of these, so now that the Master and Apprentice series is done at last, I thought I’d go back and collect a bunch of reviews! Turned out that there were a LOT more than I remembered, so I haven’t linked to all of them – only the ones I especially liked or which I thought were interesting in some way.
I’ve been told by other more experienced authors that I shouldn’t read reviews. I kind of see their point, but for now I’m carrying on doing it. Every now and again I get a really nasty one, but for the most part they’re either complementary, fair, or both. (Besides, I do find a lot of the feedback useful.)
In other news, Alex Verus #5 is creeping along steadily. I’m finding that as the ongoing story becomes more and more central to the series, the writing seems to be becoming more character-focused. The downside to this is that with each instalment the backstory becomes more extensive. I do wonder if I’ll eventually get to the point where it just isn’t practical to keep doing recaps anymore . . . ah well, I’ll worry about that when it happens.
Anyway, on with the reviews! Sorted by book:
And finally, for a slightly-late Valentine’s day theme, Natassia at Literary Escapism has written a love letter to Alex Verus, which I absolutely loved. I’ve never had anyone do that for one of my characters before. :)
Next Friday will be the first entry in a new Encyclopaedia Arcana mini-series, this one on Advanced Divination.
