STEAL TOMORROW

Post-apocalyptic, but far from disastrous.

By Stormy, editor, author of Require: Cookie

Aug 21, 2008: (Review written after reading chapters 1-2.1)

At this stage, there isn’t much to judge on – the story really is just beginning – there’s obviously a huge backstory (some of which is explained in bonus material).

The style and voice are solid, and there are no pacing problems as yet – the author seems eager to get the plot going as quickly as possible.

SILVERSMITH

Intriguing urban fantasy

By BGHilton, author of Trilobite Park

Aug 13, 2017: Silversmith is an urban fantasy. June, a young magician who specialises in warding spells shares an office with detective Kath, and unwittingly gets caught up in a mysterious death. At present, it’s only one short arc in, but I’m enjoying the characters and I’m very interested in knowing what’s going to happen next.

The opening chapters are a little rocky, but that seems to be true of about 90% of web novels so I don’t think that’s much of a complaint. [more . . .]
