Review

This will contain spoilers for Fool's Assassin, so avoid if you haven't read it yet.

I would like to start by thanking the very lovely person at Harper Voyager who, when I sent a cheeky email saying, "I'd really like a copy of Fool's Quest," actually sent me one. I am fortunate enough to get quite a few review copies, but this was one I really didn't expect and it's a great privilege to have been entrusted with a copy just so I can give my opinion to you guys.

Review and Author Guest Post - Rachael Craw - Stray Blog Tour

I am so, so happy to be part of the Stray blog tour. Stray is the second book in the Spark Trilogy by Rachael Craw, a sci-fi series about genetically modified humans who are Shields, the ultimate body guards. The downside of this modification is that it also produces Strays, who are the ultimate killers.

Today, as well as my review, I have a guest post from Rachael which features lots of fabulous gifs, which makes a nice change for this blog!

At the end of the post you'll find the links to the other fabulous stops on the tour. There are two or three a day, so it's as fast paced as the book! Please check them out.

If you haven't yet read Spark, the first book in the trilogy, you can find my review here. This review may contain spoilers for Spark, so proceed with caution!
