Review of Tremontaine: “Ambition” by Ellen Kushner

Tremontaine: “Ambition” by Ellen Kushner. Season three: Episode 1. Tremontaine season three is live, and I’m going to be reviewing it episode by episode! If you’re not familiar with Tremontaine, it’s a fabulous queer fantasy of manners serial story set in Ellen Kushner’s Riverside. Picture political, sword fights, and a primarily LGBTQ cast.

Review of The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli. ★★★1/2 Trigger warning: sexual harassment, physical and emotional abuse The Last Namsara is a well written YA fantasy debut.
