    I?ve just finished reading Adrian Shelby?s THE WINTER ROAD. It?s flipping brilliant. This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. It?s adult and grim, but instead of the nihilism and bleakness of much Grimdark these days it has a streak of love and hope running through the ...

    I need a while to let this book sink in. What an intense story it is, it blew me away... Teyr is such a remarkable, strong woman or rather force of nature... And yes, it made me cry a little too... I will write more once I get my thoughts together again. Two days later and I feel li...

    "He falls and I get down on his chest and my good hand seeks his face, shoving it into the earth to stop its writhing, drive my one good thumb through an eye far as it'll go. A shout behind me, I twist to jump clear but the spear goes through me. Out my front it comes, clean out of my ...

    This review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress... I started reading The Winter Road the day before Red Dead Redemption 2 came out. To say that I had been eagerly awaiting the release of that game would be a massive understateme...

    4 1/2 stars Adrian Selby's name has been on the tongues of many readers lately and it's mostly glowing in nature. THE WINTER ROAD is the Welsh author's second full-length novel (the first being Snakewood, set in the same world as this one). It was with a great deal of excitement tha...

    The Winter Road by Adrian Selby absolutely gripped me, start to finish. Teyr Amondsen is one of the best characters I?ve ever read. She?s an absolute force of nature, a stone-cold badass, but with a fierce ambition to prove herself while making life better for people in and around ...

    4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/01/10/... I feel like 2018 was the year of second chances. When I finished The Winter Road, I had a hard time believing this was by the same author as Snakewood, a debut that?well, I thought was okay, but didn?t ...

    The Winter Road is a book which ticks a lot of boxes. It?s quite action-heavy, with a fair few exciting fight scenes. It has a main character who is both sympathetic and pretty badass. It has a unique world with its own troubles, societies, and magic. And it has a plot which, althoug...

    The more things change the more they stay the same. This book reminded me that things happen to us all the time, terrible or joyous, happy or sad, and we get through them because on a long enough timeline we are who we are. The writing took me a minute to get used to, and I had to re...

    Ahoy there me mateys!  I received this fantasy eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  So here be me honest musings . . . Damn, what a good book!  The blurb does not do this one justice at all.  This is a grimdark fantasy that follows Teyr Amondsen, an ex-soldier...

    4.33/5 stars A very atmospheric and personal story. Teyr Amondson may be one of the best developed characters I've ever read about. ...

    Gritty, raw, compelling, and emotionally powerful book. I have read other reviews comparing this author to Joe Abercrombie, John Gwynne and frankly that is one reason I chose to read this work and it is well deserved. An emotionally powerful, epic tale of an incredible woman with an in...

    I noticed the author wrote another novel. Is this novel related to Snakewood? It is set in the same world but takes place hundreds of years earlier. It explains the origins of a prominent organization that is a key part of Snakewood. You can easily read The Winter Road with no knowl...

    The first two thirds of 'The Winter Road' is 4 star material. The characters are expertly drawn and the basic plot is well laid out with lots of action and suspense. I admit that I was, at times, a bit frustrated with the book's dialogue as the individual characters' grammar skills shi...

    The Winter Road Actual Rating 3.5 stars The Winter Road was an amazing fantasy novel. I loved the characters and I especially loved the intense world building. I think that most readers who enjoy a unique fantasy novel will enjoy reading this book. The thing that made this boo...

    *** Thank you to NetGalley and Orbit books for providing me with a free eARC of this book *** The first thing I have to say about this book is that it is brutal. And I loved every minute of it. Selby has created a completely brutal world, thrown in a badass female ex-soldier, - a wa...

    How come I never heard about this author before ? I was wondering while I was reading this book and being enthralled by what I was reading. It's amazing, powerful, full of emotions and a lot of fun to read. I loved it and I couldn't put it down. It was a great discovery and a joy to ...

    Good book with great atmosphere, protagonist and worldbulding, but the ending could have been better. I am looking forward to Selby's future books. ...

    The first two thirds of 'The Winter Road' is 4 star material. The characters are expertly drawn and the basic plot is well laid out with lots of action and suspense. I admit that I was, at times, a bit frustrated with the book's dialogue as the individual characters' grammar skills shi...

    The Winter Road Actual Rating 3.5 stars The Winter Road was an amazing fantasy novel. I loved the characters and I especially loved the intense world building. I think that most readers who enjoy a unique fantasy novel will enjoy reading this book. The thing that made this boo...

    *** Thank you to NetGalley and Orbit books for providing me with a free eARC of this book *** The first thing I have to say about this book is that it is brutal. And I loved every minute of it. Selby has created a completely brutal world, thrown in a badass female ex-soldier, - a wa...

    How come I never heard about this author before ? I was wondering while I was reading this book and being enthralled by what I was reading. It's amazing, powerful, full of emotions and a lot of fun to read. I loved it and I couldn't put it down. It was a great discovery and a joy to ...

    I?ve just finished reading Adrian Shelby?s THE WINTER ROAD. It?s flipping brilliant. This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. It?s adult and grim, but instead of the nihilism and bleakness of much Grimdark these days it has a streak of love and hope running through the ...

    I need a while to let this book sink in. What an intense story it is, it blew me away... Teyr is such a remarkable, strong woman or rather force of nature... And yes, it made me cry a little too... I will write more once I get my thoughts together again. Two days later and I feel li...

    4 1/2 stars Adrian Selby's name has been on the tongues of many readers lately and it's mostly glowing in nature. THE WINTER ROAD is the Welsh author's second full-length novel (the first being Snakewood, set in the same world as this one). It was with a great deal of excitement tha...

    The Winter Road by Adrian Selby absolutely gripped me, start to finish. Teyr Amondsen is one of the best characters I?ve ever read. She?s an absolute force of nature, a stone-cold badass, but with a fierce ambition to prove herself while making life better for people in and around ...

    The Winter Road is a book which ticks a lot of boxes. It?s quite action-heavy, with a fair few exciting fight scenes. It has a main character who is both sympathetic and pretty badass. It has a unique world with its own troubles, societies, and magic. And it has a plot which, althoug...

    The more things change the more they stay the same. This book reminded me that things happen to us all the time, terrible or joyous, happy or sad, and we get through them because on a long enough timeline we are who we are. The writing took me a minute to get used to, and I had to re...

    The Winter Road is a book which ticks a lot of boxes. It?s quite action-heavy, with a fair few exciting fight scenes. It has a main character who is both sympathetic and pretty badass. It has a unique world with its own troubles, societies, and magic. And it has a plot which, althoug...

    The more things change the more they stay the same. This book reminded me that things happen to us all the time, terrible or joyous, happy or sad, and we get through them because on a long enough timeline we are who we are. The writing took me a minute to get used to, and I had to re...
