More fabulous “hexy” fun times

Hexmaker (Hexworld, #2)Hexmaker by Jordan L. Hawk

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series really is a delightful original, a steampunk dystopian alternative reality set in an America resembling turn of the century Edwardian society.

The hexes which make up the power in this world are intriguing and detailed and the witches and familiars who have the skills to power them are fully fleshed out characters.

I loved both Owen and Malachi, the difference in their respective backgrounds and stations in life worked wonderfully well against the backdrop of more anarchist plotting.

Lovely to see guest appearances from Tom and Cicero as well as Dominic and Rook. I hope there’s a book three on its way soon.

Cute Christmas short from the Hexworld

A Christmas Hex (Hexworld #2.5)A Christmas Hex by Jordan L. Hawk

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love wolves so I really felt for poor Roland in this Christmas special from Jordan L Hawk. Mythology places them in many of our darkest tales and it’s these which the alternative steampunk reality focuses on.

Gus was a sweetie though and the crime fighting element of the narrative was quite cleverly done. I did like the detective/author references which reminded me of Hawk’s Whyborne and Griffin.
