Harwood's chilling debut infuses the classic Cinderella story with a layered, sensual, and embittered flavour — and transforms it into a more humane story where passion, desperation, and desires run high and happily-ever-after is not without cost.
Winter's Orbit is a quick, refreshing, and delightful book full of sweet slow-burn, nuanced romance wrapped in an intriguing, twisty space opera.
Although I wished for a more mature feel to the story, Threadneedle is a bewitching debut enthralling and strongly imaginative enough to bind me in its spell. With such sumptuous magic, richly drawn characters, splendid villains, and seductive prose, how could it not?
This roaring sequel to Kingdom of Souls is a much more intimate, emotional, and character-driven book that tells its dark plot exceptionally well with the depth and nuance it deserves.
