  • Jacqueline Carey Women in SF&F Month: Jacqueline Carey

    Today’s guest is renowned fantasy author Jacqueline Carey! She’s probably best-known for her epic fantasy series, Kushiel’s Legacy, but she’s also written several other books, some of which fall under other speculative fiction subgenres. I love her books and think she does a fantastic job writing characters with a diverse range of abilities and personalities, particularly her unique and wonderful leading ladies. Today, though, she’s here to talk about epic fantasy and why it seems to be the last bastion […]

Not only do they have a great quantity of posts, but they maintain great quality with their intelligent, funny reviews and articles. They have excellent taste in books […]

  • Review of Saints Astray by Jacqueline Carey

While I thought of it as urban fantasy when I first read it (not having read much of the genre at the time and having seen it labeled that), I’d consider it science fiction now since it does deal with genetic engineering and is a bit post-apocalyptic/dystopian.

  • Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey Interview with Jacqueline Carey

    Today I am very excited to have an interview with an author whose work I admire greatly, Jacqueline Carey. Jacqueline Carey has written the Kushiel’s Legacy series, the Naamah trilogy, the Sundering duology, and Santa Olivia and its sequel Saints Astray (available today!). She has amazing diversity as an author – all her books I’ve read are very different from each other and have very different main characters. I have really enjoyed every single one of her five books I […]

  • Saints Astray by Jacqueline Carey The Leaning Pile of Books

    This week brought two review copies and one ARC. One of these books is one I cannot wait to read, but I’m not so sure the other two are really the books for me. As usual, I’ll mention them anyway just in case they are books you are interested in and want to check out! Saints Astray by Jacqueline Carey This is the sequel to Santa Olivia, which I rather enjoyed (review). Jacqueline Carey is an immensely talented author and […]
