Grimdark fantasy debut by a female author! Fast and we'll written, but TW for rape and human sacrifice.
I thought the characters could use some finer work in the beginning, but it all comes together and of course it ends in a cliffhanger and I NEED THE SECOND BOOK NOW!!

Brutal ,fast paced and thrilling piece of grimdark fantasy , a lot of short sharp chapters but you're held until the end. Bring on the rest of the series .

imyril Godblind really took me by surprise - I didn‘t expect to enjoy it but I was gripped. Looking forward to Darksoul. 10mo

Happy hump day! If you're a fan of grimdark fantasy with lots of POVs and warfare, this book. There were definitely some issues (and lots of brutality) but it was a good read over the dark winter nights.

#fantasy #grimdark

imyril I don‘t particularly enjoy grimdark these days, but even I was gripped by Godblind. It seemed to ultimately subvert the tropes (ironically given grimdark subverts trad fantasy tropes). I‘m even considering a reread before I tackle Darksoul... 11mo
Lucy_Anywhere I love grimdark, especially with a bit of humour, and I'll definitely be reading the second because Godblind has a lot of potential and the last half of the book was gripping! Let me know how Darksoul is? 11mo

This book delivered much in the way of rituals, sacrifices, and sheer brutality! Seriously, if it can cause a trigger, it is in this book and it will be in full graphic bloody detail. There were about ten different points of view in this book and that did take away from really developing a true connection with any one character. Also, a lot of the plot felt like it followed a grimdark formula. Full review at www.thegenreminx.com #bookreviewer

1. Godblind by Anna Stephens - Book by a new dark fantasy author I that highly recommend. She liked my review of her book on Goodreads which I thought was cool. I didn't know authors really looked at those.
2. Neil Gaiman
3. Girl, Interrupted
4. Garlic (we put it in everything in this house!)

Finally getting into this book at around the 100 page mark. It took a while but it was worth the wait as things are really heating up now 🔥 #fantasy #currentlyreading

Bailing on this one for now. It‘s not by any means a bad book and I have thoroughly enjoyed what I‘ve read so far. But my reading mood has shifted and I don‘t see myself finishing this before it goes back to the library. But when I‘m back in the mood for a grimdark fantasy I‘ll be picking this up again! So it‘s not goodbye, just see you later Godblind.

I highly recommend this one if you like a dark fantasy on steroids. The fight scenes were especially good and her characters were awesome. This was Anna Stephens's first novel and I was impressed.

“Poe had the winner and scooped coins and ale to his side of the table, baring yellow snaggle-teeth in something that might have been a smile. On a bear.” 🤣 Loving the humor in this one.

Next up! Had my eye on this one for a while and finally snagged it from my library, though I can tell I‘m going to be wanting my own copy. I only have a couple of days to read it, but my mind is such that I just want to stare at my phone until I fall asleep because I can‘t seem to concentrate on anything else😩 anyone else have issues getting motivated to read sometimes?

ferskner YES. It's a bad having that's developed over the past year. I hate it. 2y
RainyDayReading @ferskner I‘ve developed it over the past year as well! Super annoying, though I‘m glad it‘s not just me that experiences it 😪 2y

This is not for the faint of heart. Seriously! Gory imagery, brutal assaults and an awful lot of swearing. Despite that, it's an enjoyable read. The short chapters form varying points of view weren't really to my tastes, but it helped me connect or dislike characters, which was probably the aim.

mjdowens I have this waiting impatiently in my Amazon cart😬😬 2y

About to start this dark fantasy! 😍
Super excited for what it holds, and even more excited that it's a female author producing a dark adult fantasy novel!

Chocomeiske Have this one too! Curious to hear what you think about it. The huge font is such a turn off for me though., pffff.. 2y
Utopiyll @Chocomeiske i'll let you know!! I was only able to read a couple chapters yesterday 😱 but the font and the margains also put me off! It just seemed such a contrast to it being an adult fantasy! 2y
Chocomeiske @Utopiyll Ikr... The font is better suited to middle grade... 2y
adventuresthruwonderland Oh! How have I not heard about this one before? It looks amazing! 2y
Utopiyll @adventuresthruwonderland Same!! I only saw someone reading it on litsy so that's how I knew about it, but such a good book went under my nose!!! 2y

I just love this cover but I hate the layout and the size of the font they used. If I had seen this before I bought it, I wouldn't have bought it because of that but probably bought the paperback..
Does anyone else get turned off by too large or spaced out print in books or weird fonts?

If you like your fantasy gory, brutal, bloody, stabby, and very vivid then this is the read for you!

I got more and more hooked, the pace was snappy, helped along by the short chapters and differing POVs. There's plenty of interesting characters and I'm expecting big things from the sequel!

Thanks to this book I can't look at a hammer in the same way again 😷

#bookphotography #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookreview #fantasybooks #fantasy

Utopiyll My interest has definately peaked!! Do we know if it's a YA or adult read? And is it terribly sad?! I love dark fantasy but if my favourites characters are dying left, right and centre it is definately hard on the heart!! 😭 Beautiful cover as well 😍 2y
realitysabore @Utopiyll definitely adult. Definitely. It's a pretty brutal book right from the start, and I wouldn't say it's sad, it's just really bloodthirsty! I might even have to say it's bloodier than Game of Thrones 🙊 2y
Utopiyll @realitysabore Ohh that's exciting!! I can't wait to read it!! 2y

I don't know what else to say except this book was WILD from start to finish. Also very graphic and violent.
Giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

TrishB @ScorpioBookDreams @DeborahSmall oh no.....I thought you were going to say it's rubbish.....payday next week and I can already feel my finger hovering over the buy button......😀 3y
ScorpioBookDreams @TrishB I 100% think you should! At least you can see what the next 3 books are so you'll know if it suits your taste. Plus you get a free book when ordering! 3y
DeborahSmall @TrishB they will take the money out of your account for first 3 books, then put it back again then take it out once your book is ready to be dispatched. So although it seems like a lot in one go you're only paying for this months book plus a free exclusive book!!Out of the 10 Goldsboro books I've bought since November, my favourite is the exclusive free copy of The Quick I got. I'm not sure if my pics still visible under the tag 3y
ScorpioBookDreams @TrishB if you do decide to join, you can say you were recommended by @DeborahSmall and she'll get a voucher. She did the same for me. 3y

TrishB @ScorpioBookDreams @DeborahSmall I think I'm sold....I have looked at the next 3 and definitely ones I would read! Hurry up payday 😀👍 3y
TrishB @DeborahSmall I shall remember the recommendation bit! 3y
DeborahSmall @TrishB Thank you. If you do go ahead let me know. All I need to do is give you my email address and you put a note in the comments box when checking out, again no pressure!! But I think you will enjoy it as plenty of historical novels 3y
