I am a writer of science fiction and fantasy and also an avid reader of (mostly) the same. Expect to see reviews from me of speculative fiction books from well known and less well known authors. (Many of my reviews WILL be cross posted from Goodreads).


Conjured - Sarah Beth Durst This is an absolutely fantastic book, one I found it very hard to put down. The book is written from the point of view of shattered, broken Eve - she has amnesia, she's wearing a face not her own, she has disturbing yet beautiful flashbacks...which her "protectors" need to help them catch a serial killer - and it's written in such a gorgeous and immersive style that it shows the reader what it's like to be Eve.

I highly recommend this book to all lovers of contemporary fantasy (which it mostly is, but it does digress into other worlds towards the end).

Caveat: This book deals with themes of child abuse, albeit in a somewhat indirect and twisted way. This may make some readers uncomfortable.
