Beautiful prose, evocative story, clever book that threw me back on my haunches and made me want to re-read it immediately.

Gritty, relentless, uniquely West Yorkshire and above all, realistic. Come for the plot, stay for the intense detail, well-drawn characters and well-thought-out political backdrop.

Fun, busy, and it was 3 years ago when I read it and I can't remember anything about the story, which is great because that means it's time to read it again!

Like All Is Fair, this was a busy novel that I was sorry to finish. Can't fault it on length, plenty to read, and the story is lots of fun, crammed with action.

Multi-layered masterpiece, as grim as it should be, and eminently quotable in any climate change conversation.

It's absolutely beautiful, with delicate, precise writing that perfectly encapsulates a sense of place, of culture, of magic.

In the Sweep of the Bay
by Cath Barton

Why do we make the choices we do? Social and family pressures, personal beliefs of our place in society and of how our lives are supposed to be. This is a book that lets you look inside the lives of one family, and gives you the sense of understanding that a bitter or reserved exterior can hide losses that no-one else knows about.

by Chesya Burke

Thoughtful collection of tales that stay with you for months afterwards. Beautifully written, sensitively conceived, a series of set ups for injustices, love, and pain with a backdrop of the Black cultural experience in a white-oriented world.

A nail-biting introduction to South African magic and a nice bit of terror into the bargain. No reading this one on a dark stormy night unless you're bigger and hairier than the sorcerer!

Mosaic novel: a set of vignettes that link together beautifully to create one of the possible scenarios for the grinding end of the world as we know it.

Fun, light read, crazy and innovative, plenty of intrigue and weirdness. Takes a sudden left turn towards the end of the first chapter and never looks back.

by Angel Luis Colón

Noir-with-a-vengeance, this story drags you round downtown NYC, giving you tonnes of action, gratuitous violence and guns, in return for a 2-hour read. Tightly written, well described, and leaves you breathless.

Fabulous and imaginative story in an unusual setting, with themes of oppression, lost language and spirituality. Reminded me of Terry Pratchett, though very different from his work.

by Dominic Brownlow

The Naseby Horses by Dominic Brownlow is a beautiful, haunting read - lots of layers. It deals with families, trauma, and poses questions about the validity of beliefs, be they religious, superstitious or scientific.

Absolutely gorgeous writing.

Bloody loved it! Epic story with a vision for the future that is possibly more relevant in 2020 than it was when the book was first published.
