Wounds of Honour
Wounds of Honour - Anthony Riches Good debut historical fiction novel.
A Roman is hidden in the deeps of Britain to escape the emperor's plot to destroy his family.
Marcus Valerius Aquila gets sent over the sea and joins up with the legion, where he is quickly given a new identity and made a centurion.

Some of the early incidents are a bit contrived (taking on the century's hard cases to win them over), but overall it's a good story with some funny barracks humour thrown in.

Plenty of excitement and tense moments, and the characters are well written.

Historical Romance
Rake's Honour - Beverley Oakley

Rake's Honour by Beverley Oakley is an entertaining historical romance.  This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.   Ms. Oakley has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are varied, some you love, some you hate and some you want to shake some sense into.  Fanny and Fenton's story is full of drama, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Rake's Honour and look forward to reading more from Beverley Oakley in the future.  Rake's Honour is book 1 of the Scandalous Miss Brightwell Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.


I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Instafreebie.

Wringo Ink. Short Story for the Genre “Starts with a Phrase”: Not. A. Story.







Once upon a time, sharks flew across the sky.


Or so one would think if one hadn’t been living in that era.


It was an age where people thought they had the right to punish people in God’s stead.


It was a time when it was okay to turn the sacred ground of universities into abattoirs.


It was just one of the moments in a string of moments when masks slipped off faces. With the carapace removed, you could see the hideousness underneath. The beings that had been masquerading around as animals were found to be much much worse. They might have been playacting to be civilized animals but the reality was abhorrently bad. When the masks were gone, we realized the torturers had been human.


Only the most unfortunate were alive at this instant in history. Could there be any doubt about their luckless nature if one looked at their accursed existence?


It was an epoch when nests were raided and the nestlings would never be safe. A false sense of optimism and security lay on the world like a thick heavy blanket. It seduced the birds to keep breeding, thinking their cygnets would be the only ones to be blessed. They never were; their fates had been anointed with humanity. There was no way those nestlings would remain unaffected.


It was a phase in human history when the Painbearers were taught their place. Untouched but still sullied, they plodded on. The chinks grew larger and each time, they glued the pieces back with hopelessness. Freedom was an illusion and the idea that they would ever be anything but the bearers of pain, a mirage.


It was an interval that had stopped being an interval a long time ago. It was like a pox-ridden Cronos but who refused to die.


In short, it was everyday o’clock.

The Course of Honour by Avoliot
The Course of Honour - Avoliot

An excellent original work from Avoliot on AO3, could not put this one down. Prince Kiem is hurried into a marriage with Count Jainan to preserve the treaty between their two planets. Keim puts Jainan's subdued manner down to the fact that he is still in mourning for his partner Prince Taam who recently died in a flybug accident.

Honour's Knight: Book 2 of Paradox - Rachel Bach

Ooh that's complicated.


That was not what I was expecting to happen with the story, complex and involved and I really what to know where she's going with the story because from here it's complicated. There are so many wheels within wheels and messy inter-personal stuff going on.


Definitely a mid-series novel though.
