Tremontaine S2E7: The Duchess Gambit

  The seventh episode of Tremontaine – the halfway turning point for this season – is a turning point for all the characters involved, and not every development they face is a pleasant one… *Deep breath* Let’s discuss Tremontaine.

Power, Passion and Problem Solving: The Tremontaine Story So Far

  So it’s time for a new Tremontaine challenge, and it’s well timed: this week the TremonTeam was tasked to write up our thoughts about the story so far, as season two hits its halfway point. There have been surprises galore, both pleasant and not so pleasant. Characters new and old are weaving one hell […]

SF/F Read Alongs: A Closed and Common Orbit, Part 1

It’s finally here! The read along for the wonderful sequel to The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet begins today, and I’ve already fallen head over heels back in love with this book. My second read-through promises to be every bit as rewarding as the first, and goodness knows I’ll need something to get […]

Tremontaine S2E6: Blood and Silk

  So. After all of my thoughts and criticisms over the past few weeks, this episode wrings out all my sympathy for Kaab and her self-made domestic mess, and wrings it hard. I still can’t deny that she’s more or less brought this on herself, but ye gods, I’ve got to admit she deserves a […]

Tremontaine S2E5: “Alive, and Home Here”

  This episode is brought to us by Alaya Dawn Johnson, and you know what that means, right? BEST KAAB YET. Or at least in my case, the most thought-provoking Kaab yet. You’ll see what I mean soon enough… Let’s talk about Tremontaine! (With spoilers!)

SF/F Read Alongs: Kushiel’s Mercy, Part 7

In the final part of Kushiel’s Mercy, the race is really on now to save the City and prevent a civil war – and the gods are watching… So I was supposed to be hosting this week, but thanks to an unexpectedly chaotic weekend I wasn’t able to get my round of questions out in […]

Tremontaine S2E4: “All That Glitters”

  It is time for a breather from … well, everything. That means it’s time to wrap myself up in my favourite comfort read of the moment, and talk about Tremontaine! This week’s episode sees Joel Derfner take the wheel for the first of his Season 2 episodes, and it’s a cracker of a chapter […]

Sci-Fi Month Giveaway #3

  A new week of Sci-Fi Month means a new giveaway here, today! This time I’ve got something very different from the last, but it’s a book that kicks ass all the same…

SF/F Read Alongs: Kushiel’s Mercy, Part 6

  In part six of Kushiel’s Mercy, a war is fought and won, and justice is delivered – but the fight isn’t over yet… This week’s host is Allie at Tethyan Books, and we’re covering chapters 63 through 75. Spoiler alert!
