Review: The Love Letter, by Lucinda Riley

Wow, this book was quite a rollercoaster. I don't think any of it quite turned out how I was expecting it to- and for somebody who reads around a book a day, that was quite something!

I'll start by saying this: Cold Iron was a fantastic book. Gripping, immersive and oh-so-magical (in both senses of the word), it was one of those books that I found reading on the tube, on the way home from work, before bed... In short, I loved it. Set in a reimagined Byzantine/ Italian medieval world, where mages… Continue reading Blog Tour: Cold Iron, by Miles Cameron
