Cover reveal: Helldiver: Intrepid 4 by Chris Allen

May 27, 2015 by

Has Morgan finally met his match?  Alex Morgan – policeman, soldier and spy for INTREPID – commits to the toughest mission of his career, and his chances of survival are slimmer than ever. Sent deep into the shadows of Europe’s criminal underbelly, Morgan’s mission is to overthrow an oligarch and bring a spy in from the cold. But his target is closer than he knows. As old friends re-emerge, it becomes clear that the very heart of Morgan’s black ops …


Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 7 – The Gift


This is the latest in the weekly Game of Thrones recaps for Season 5, and if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, please don’t read on. Naturally, all the spoilers. So after last week’s disappointing episode we’ll begin this recap in the North, with a series of scenes that only reiterate just how close winter is. Just about every shot outside shows the falling snow, adding a chill to scenes south of the Wall that hasn’t been present since the early scenes in …


Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 6 – Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken


Well, they managed it. I’ve finally run out of excuses for the show runners, and I’m more than happy to lump them in with the rest of the lazy, derivative, reductive male writers kicking around prestige television. This, of course, has to do with the final scene of the episode. And it’s such a disappointing, insulting, offensive scene that it really makes discussing the rest of the episode a non-event. So I’ll be brief. Arya is still in the House of …


On writing the Janna Chronicles: with Felicity Pulman


I feel as though I’ve been running a marathon, with a Janna Chronicle being published every month since January this year. It’s been exhausting and challenging, but immensely satisfying to watch Janna’s quest unfolding as she goes in search of her unknown father hoping that, with his help, she’ll be able to avenge a death and bring a murderer to justice. Being a ‘pantser’ not a plotter, I began the series with that concept in mind, but I had little …


Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 5 – Kill the Boy


This is the latest in the weekly Game of Thrones recaps for Season 5, and if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, please don’t read on. Naturally, all the spoilers. Winter is coming, and it’s a cold, cold episode this week. Last week I spoke about how the show was becoming increasingly deft at weaving together characters and plots, by taking a cause-and-effect approach to certain scenes. Well this week they basically stepped that up a level, with the entire episode operating very …


Cover Reveal: The Wedding by S.A. Gordon


It’s the biggest of days for Britain’s Prince David and his American fiancée, Caitlin Meadows – but twists in their tale will ensure that it’s not a conventional royal wedding by any means … This free short is fantastic for all fans of The Prince and The Queen and bridges the gap between the two...


Epic Rules for Epic Fantasy


There are many reasons why I love epic fantasy. First of all, there’s the larger than life aspect of it, of someone going out to save the world from a terrible threat. Second, you get to explore a whole new universe, one where, often, magic is a real thing and people are capable of working wonders. There are downsides of course, such as the prevalence of dark lords and monsters, but those seem negotiable when you have magic and sword …


Cover Reveal: Equilibrium episode 5 and 6


The Ayons lose their king, making way for a deadly new leader. King Samian is dead. In the aftermath of the fateful battle in the castle, Lord General Archis Varren launches a full-scale invasion of the south, determined to deal the Ronnesians a blow they will never forget. Stationed at Kilsney, Captain Rasmus Auran is the first to witness the fury of the Ayon attack. Forced to retreat, and hounded by their northern enemy every step of the way, Ronnesian …


Naming a Royal Princess


S.A. Gordon, author of The Young Royals series, including The Prince and the upcoming The Queen talks to us about naming her own Royal Baby, and how she almost got the correct name. When writing The Prince I had to create names for several royal personages, including one princess who was destined to be queen. The prince himself is called David (and his full suite of names will be revealed in the opening lines of The Queen). His younger sister is Margaret Mary Anne. …


Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 4 – Sons of the Harpy


This is the latest in the weekly Game of Thrones recaps for Season 5, and if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, please don’t read on. Naturally, all the spoilers. After last week’s Seven Kingdoms-hopping jaunt, where characters like Sansa moved great distances in a very short space of time, this episode decided to opt for a more settled, sequenced aproach. This was an element that worked well last season, though generally they’d save the longer sequences for the end of episodes, whereas …


Have a character named after you – with Duncan Lay!


Have you ever read a fantasy book and found the names of characters confusing? Wondered if that world really needed so many consonants, and so few vowels? Has the character angered the God of Names or perhaps been hiding from an orc army when it came time to hand out the good names, or at least the ones that can be pronounced without sounding as though you have a hairball in your throat. And let’s not get started on apostrophes …


Cover Reveal: Equilibrium episodes 3 and 4


The Ronnesians are forced to answer for their deception, which comes at a deadly price. Lord General Archis Varren, intent on avenging the murder of his predecessor, has traced the assassination contract to the Ronnesian Mayor Challan, one of Queen Sorcha’s most valued supporters. Meanwhile, Vrór viciously attacks the Ronnesian capital of Te’Roek, luring Angora back from her self-appointed mission in the north. The two Leikas finally come face to face and their ensuing battle takes them far from the …
