  • The Queen of the Tearling – Erika Johansen

    R285.00

    The Queen of the Tearling is a debut fantasy novel and the first of a trilogy. (The movie rights of which were snapped up by Warner Bros and due for release later this year). The story is set in what appears to be medieval times, although it is in fact the 24th Century. The Tearling is a decaying society in which technology has been abandoned and books don’t matter. Kelsea Glynn is the reluctant heroine and heir to her deceased mother’s throne. She has been in hiding for her first 18 years and the novel begins with the remnants of her mother’s guard arriving to escort her to claim her throne. The Tearling has been governed by her debauched uncle until she came of age, and he appears to be nothing more than a puppet for the evil Red Queen, sorceress-tyrant of the neighbouring country. The Tearling people are suspicious, cowed and disillusioned and Kelsea has to confront her own fears and discover inner resources as she battles to win their loyalty. This is a fun, escapist and well-imagined story, whose fallible, and often amusing, heroine I warmed to hugely. I’m looking forward to the second book.

  • Trigger Warning – Neil Gaiman

    R300.00

    Neil Gaiman continually proves himself to be an intelligent writer with a unique creative genius. His latest work, Trigger Warning, a collection of short fiction, makes the point clear again. This anthology – a collection of new and previously published short stories – explores the idea of people understanding their true natures, coming to grips with themselves and dropping the masks they might wear in society. It’s an compendium of vulnerabilities and hidden strengths.
    The anthology itself is a profusion of horror and ghost stories, of fantasy and science fiction and sometimes poetry and fairy tales. He also revisits the world of his best-selling work American Gods with the story “Black Dog”, and includes a Doctor Who story written for its 50th anniversary. In each of the tales, Gaiman encourages the reader to explore the nature of personal truths as his stories transcend the mundane. With his easy-to-read style and ability to capture the heart and mind – and to stir the soul – of any audience, Gaiman’s Trigger Warning is a must-read, filled with wonders and terrors alike.
