The Tangled Lands by Paolo Bacigalupi and Tobias S. Buckell is a fantasy read that is done a bit differently than normal books. When it was said in the synopsis that it takes place in four parts I wasn’t quite expecting four completely different stories. This really makes the book feel like readi...

3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum A couple things I didn’t realize when I first picked up The Tangled Lands: one, the world featured here was in fact introduced back around 2011 in the Khaim Novellas series, consisting of The Alchemist by Paolo Bacigalupi...

This review first appeared on my blog.text The Tangled Lands is made up of four distinct short stories, tied together by a common land and a common problem. Calling The Tangled Lands a novel is a bit misleading and left me somewhat disappointed in the end result. The four stories are loosely tied...

This was just ok for me. When it says a story in four parts it actually means four story’s in the same world. There are two stories from each author and the book read like a collection of novellas. They were all of a good standard but I can’t help but wish it was one narrative set in this world....

This wasn't exactly what I was expecting but I really enjoyed this! Lots of different POVs and consistent writing between the two authors. I was expecting them to try and solve the toxic magic stuff destroying the town but that's not the point of the book. Really cool and fast read and A FANTASY...

Those of us living through the trump administration will certainly see some familiarity in these cautionary tales of a fantasyland. And what a well built fantasyland this is! This quartet of stories is a rich enticement to hoping for further novels set in this class driven world. The two authors...

'The Tangled Lands' is made up of four standalone novellas tied together by a common land and a common problem. The overuse of magic has given rise to a bramble that is encroaching on the cities and destroying everything in its path. The worldbuilding is beautiful . It allows the stories to breat...

Read as an eARC from Netgalley This collection of four novellas surprised me in a few ways. I am a fan of stories about cities, the people who inhabit them, and the way one's evolution influences the other's. Khaim, the Blue City, has been afflicted by bramble that sprouts from overuse of magic an...

Really interesting concept, but definitely very underwhelmingly executed. This book is actually four standalone novellas, which don't really build on each other or expand the extended story, which I really wanted them to do. By the end it was actually pretty frustrating, as I felt the first one w...
