Review: Equinox by David Towsey

Christophor Morden lives by night. His day-brother, Alexsander, knows only the sun. They are two souls in a single body, in a world where identities change with the rising and setting of the sun. Night-brother or day-sister, one never sees the light, the other knows nothing of the night. Early one evening, Christophor is roused by a call to the city prison. A prisoner has torn his eyes out and cannot say why. Yet worse: in the sockets that once held his eyes, teeth are growing. The police suspect the supernatural, so Christophor, a member of the king’s special inspectorate, is charged with finding the witch responsible. Night-by-night, Christophor’s investigation leads him ever further from home, toward a backwards village on the far edge of the kingdom. But the closer he gets to the truth, the more his day-brother’s actions frustrate him. Who is Alexsander protecting? What does he not want Christophor to discover? And all the while, an ancient and apocalyptic ritual creeps closer to completion...

Eurovision Outfits as Fantasy Book Covers

Some might say Eurovision is over for the year, but the truth is, Eurovision is never over! If you haven't guessed, I'm a big fan, and because May is both the month of this fantastical music contest AND the bookish Wyrd and Wonder, I thought I'd mash the two together to create something weird and wonderful (pun intended). The premise is simple: any outfits/stage looks that took my fancy, whether during the premier, or the show itself, paired with a fantasy book cover I think matches its colours and vibes.
