Since I didn’t have a blog post on Monday and I just got some fun book mail today, I thought I’d do a quick follow-up to my ARC review of The Shield Road by Dewi Hargreaves. I specifically want to address the physical book since I didn’t have that available when I did the review.
I think my appreciation of the cover design went up seeing it in print. Little details I didn’t really notice looking at it on the computer screen pop out to me more on the print cover. (For example, the tiny moon on the banner over the castle and the embossed look of the lettering).
The inside pretty much looks just like the PDF I had for the ARC. I haven’t read the whole thing over again carefully (obviously, since I just got it today), but flipping through, I didn’t notice any issues—overall just a nice, readable book.
Side note for American readers, this is formatted in the British style for quotation marks. I didn’t mention that in my initial review.
Anyway, I’m really excited to add this to the shelf with all the books I’ve reviewed on the blog so far.
