reviewed Godkiller by Hannah Kaner (Fallen Gods, #1)

Hannah Kaner: Godkiller (Hardcover, 2023, Harper Voyager) 4 stars

Gods are forbidden in the kingdom of Middren. Formed by human desires and fed by …

Not quite to my tastes

3 stars

The fates of a Godkiller, a baker, and a young girl and her pet God intertwine in this fantasy novel. I really wanted to like this more than I did, but for some reason neither the world, the story nor the characters really captured my interest. However, it really picked up by the end and pushed me into probable sequel-reading territory.

Foz Meadows: All the Hidden Paths (2023, Doherty Associates, LLC, Tom, Tor Books) 3 stars

Still enjoyable

3 stars

Though I devoured this as fast as I did the first book in The Tithenai Chronicles series, I didn’t enjoy it quite as much. There was a little too much rumination on self-worth (or the lack thereof) for my tastes. Still enjoy the worldbuilding and the characters a lot. I did like the addition of the new POV character and could easily have read a chapter or two more of their story. Liked it enough to read a threequel.

Foz Meadows: A Strange and Stubborn Endurance (Paperback, Tor Books) 4 stars

Very sweet, very queer

4 stars

I really enjoyed A Strange and Stubborn Endurance by Foz Meadows. A unabashadely queer novel deliciously somehow saturated with both tenderness and sweetness even though there are a lot of rather grim situations (murders/rape/abuse). After finishing I was left with the same kind of feelings I have after Becky Chambers or Katherine Addison novels. Absolutely delightful.

reviewed Lake of Souls by Ann Leckie

Ann Leckie: Lake of Souls (EBook, Orbit Books) 4 stars

Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke award-winner Ann Leckie is a modern master of the …

Probably mostly for actual fans of short stories

3 stars

As a huge fan of Ann Leckie, but not someone who generally enjoys short stories very much, this was a bit mixed bag for me. I enjoyed the final two stories the most, the penultimate being the absolute delight that is "Saving Bacon". I loved it, and I love Slale Vachash-Troer and his family so, so much.
