Reach for the stars, get dropped into strange worlds, or shut your eyes and dive into the darkest recesses of the imagination of horror. Enjoy!
This is a tale of intrigue and drama with thoroughly likeable characters who you are rooting for all the way through their various adventures. If Philip Pullman is your kind of author then give Stephen Hunt a try, he wonâ€™t disappoint.
The outstanding novel that became the cult classic film Blade Runner. Considered to be one of the great works of science fiction, it raises important questions about religion, technology and what defines us as human beings.
More fantastic fantasy from the almighty Raymond E Feist! Flight of the Nighthawks really showed Feistâ€™s return to form, with this second books revisiting the Midkemian history. The dark underworld, sinister creatures and pacy plot made this a really enjoyable read.
Everyoneâ€™s favourite dragon is back! Following on from the first book, Naomi Novik does a fantastic job of developing the relationship between Captain Laurence and Temeraire as they travel East as they are commanded to return the dragon to the Chinese. Definitely think Jonathan Strange meets Patrick Oâ€™Brian - I canâ€™t wait for the next part!
These novels (in our view) are simply superb. Gritty, technologically advanced, but never fanciful. If you like this then go back and read the series starting with Altered Carbon. Whenever I read one I regularly miss my stop on the tube!
9th in this epic fantasy adventure featuring magician Richard Rahl, if you like it there will be plenty to keep you busy
Emotional rollercoaster telling the story of five days in the life of an ordinary man - a story that will challenge the way you look at good and evil, life and death. Utterly brilliant
A young boy with awesome powers is controlled by the state and taken to a strange military school where his skill with games is manipulated with dreadful consequences as part of a deadly war between mankind and an alien race. Although the novel (which initiated a series) is a frantic page-turner, it also raises endless questions about morality, the nature of evil and can also be used as a perfect introduction to the challenges of SF for younger readers.
