Anna Smith-Spark: Good Books and Broken Knives

I am a passionate reader and writer, and have a PhD. in English Literature to prove it (yeah, yeah, show off...) My dark fantasy novel The Court of Broken Knives is available at www.courtofbrokenknives. My preferences are fantasy, history, bleak existential angst, but I seem to spend most of my time reading children's books.

The Court of Broken Knives

A dark fantasy, filled with loneliness, sorrow and perfect beauty. 'Vivid and clearly realised in its creation of its world, elegantly, even beautifully written. It’s mournfully accepting, but just also celebrating this bright little sad world we live in – since there ain’t no other, for us, nor for these characters.'It also has dragons.
