I received an ARC of this novel via NetGalley in return for an honest review. 544 pages| Orbit| Fantasy/ Dark Fantasy/ Speculative Fiction Release date: January 17th 2019. The digest: I cannot recommend this book highly enough to fantasy lovers. It's an immersive, highly detailed, excellent story with almost everything you could want.

The digest: the final Wayfarers book does not disappoint. With the same high-quality worldbuilding and character development as previous novels, fans of the previous books cannot afford to miss out on record of a spaceborn few.
Here it is, folks. My Favourite Five Books of 2018
The digest: if you liked the Percy Jackson series then you will most likely enjoy Aru Shah and the End of Time - a retelling of Hindu mythology where 21st Century kids are reincarnated heroes destined to save the world once again.
The digest: As beautiful as the cover art is, I’m afraid to say that this book is average at best. I can’t recommend it to anyone even vaguely already familiar with Norse mythology, and there are better starting points for those with no pre-existing knowledge.
The digest: this book is popular for a reason. Taylor tells a truly intriguing story whilst avoiding overuse of the standard YA tropes. It's not perfect but it is definitely worth a look for anyone after a YA novel with strong worldbuilding.
The digest: This Savage Song, unfortunately, is nowhere near as entertaining or high quality as Schwab's other books. It is let down by its generic plot, poor pacing, and cringey dialogue.
The digest: a fun little children’s story which would appeal to readers looking for a break from more serious narratives without losing all sense of mystery and danger. Not great but not awful.
The digest: an entertaining Arthurian-inspired grim fantasy series with realistic, bloody violence, a diverse range of characters, and a wealth of Fae politics thrown in for good measure. It’s splendidly brutal.
The digest: 4/5 if you’re after an easily-digested kids’ fantasy/horror series then look no further
