    WOW. Where do I even begin with this book? Firstly, thank you to Bloomsbury for sending me an early copy of this book to read. But also how could you do this to me? Now I have to wait another month for everyone to get their hands on this so we can talk about it! Having been a fan of...

    I finished a high fantasy tome.... Me. A person who swears she hates fantasy. And more surprisingly... I REALLY BLIMMIN ENJOYED IT!!!! Like yes. It took an age to get going and really the characters aren't all that brilliantly drawn and it's quite confusing to remember who exactly is ...

    You can find this review and more at Novel Notions. Actual rating: 4.5 stars, rounded up. The Priory of the Orange Tree is among the most beautiful works of literature I?ve ever read. In an age of fantasy where grimdark is by and large the king of the genre, Priory breaks the ...

    I don't usually get along with high fantasy - heavy world-building tends to bore me and I don't really get any enjoyment from reading about wars/fights/political ploys. But this was just WONDERFUL. PRIORY does have fights and politics (and history and dragons and magic), but its heart ...

    Hiiiii, Goodreads. This is my new book. I'm thrilled to finally be able to tell you more about it. The Priory of the Orange Tree is an epic fantasy set in a world that is both like and unlike ours. I've been working on this book since 2015, and I've fallen in love with this sett...

    As a huge Tolkien fan, and one who considers his writing to be the very best fantasy has to offer, I don?t often compare other books to his works (at least not in a positive way.) Simply because there is very rarely a good comparison to be made. Every great work of fantasy has felt s...

    DRAGON RIDERS. MATRIARCHY. REPRESENTATION. Or in other words, High Fantasy redefined. Yes, High Fantasy made feminist. Made diverse. This beast of a book blew me away in more ways than one. And definitely, in more ways than I would have ever expected. The Priory of the Orange Tre...

    I LOVED IT! There's no other way to talk about this book. Best book of the year, best book in years. We get complex characters, we get political intrigues, we get dragons, we get magic, we get a compelling story, we get what i want from an epic fantasy book with predominant female ca...

    Oh my goodness, that was the definition of an epic fantasy. It was 800+ pages and I could barely lift the ARC to read properly, but none of that page time was ever wasted, SO much is packed into this story... the scope is seriously huge. I have no clue where to even begin at explai...

    10/5 stars ?We may be small, and we may be young, but we will shake the world for our beliefs.? The Priory of the Orange Tree is a masterpiece of world building and characterization of the likes of Brandon Sanderson and J.R.R. Tolkien, and I don't compare anyone to th...

    Okay, so. I finished this behemoth. Was it good? .... I don't know. I enjoyed it for the most part. Certain aspects of this book absolutely SOARED. But overall it is waaaaaaaay too long, and the plot is a bit of a mess. The word that comes to mind is inelegant. Given how much space ...

    Epic battle between good and evil for the control of the world! Overall I really enjoyed this new fantasy book. The world was complex and interesting but since it's a standalone and that you're following 4 main POV it got quite overwhelming at times. Lots of names, places, histor...

    Samantha Shannon has just written my favorite book of all time! Yes, this is the best book I have ever read. If I could give this book 10 stars I would. The world building is just impeccable. The characters, all of them, are well developed and show growth as well as fragility. The Drag...
