Wishing you all a special time with loved ones over the festive period and hoping the return of the sun brings light and hope, or at least comfort in the darkness, to you all. Much love and safe journey to all those travelling over the holidays x

Probably no-one around here has missed me raving about the Requite books by our very own Ankaret Wells, but in case you weren't aware the latest one, Heavy Ice came out on the 1st of December and if you are a fan of SF with plenty of Adventure and romance, you are in for a treat! It's like the ultimate girl and her pony story, where the girl is a foul-mouthed bandit with the honour of the most pragmatic family of bandit royalty on her shoulders, and her pony is a 12 ft dinosaur with the most realised personality of any non-speaking animal character I've read for a long time. In keeping with its very different heroine, the tone of this book is altogether earthier and sexier than The Maker's Mask and The Hawkwood War, but the wonderful world building and background plots and intrigue are still there in spades, and if I have any complaints , it would be that I loved some of the secondary characters so much, I was disappointed it wasn't longer so we could see more of them. The lost colony main plot line is handled with wonderful attention to detail and, despite being set over 200 years after the other two, there are some lovely touches for fans of previous characters to squee over too. I finished it a couple of nights ago and am now going to have to read the other ones again over the holidays because I'm suffering Requite withdrawal symptoms.

My new motto when someone is trying to take advantage of my good nature is What Would A Hawkwood Do?
