Blackthorne Faire (2024)
John Adcox
"Adcox lays on a splendid pageant. Blackthorne Faire is a thrilling riff on folkloric fantasy, skillfully paced and vividly peopled. I loved the characters and the story was gripping, with some lovely twists and turns."

Three Eight One (2024)
Aliya Whiteley
"Whiteley's self-deconstructing quest narrative is a puzzle box full of delights, perils and strange wonders. Haunting."
