Blog Tour Review - Service Model by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Blog Tour Review - Service Model by Adrian Tchaikovsky To fix the world they first must break it further. Humanity is a dying breed, utterly reliant on artificial labor and service. When a domesticated robot gets a nasty little idea downloaded into their core programming, they murder their owner. The robot then discovers they can also do something else they never did before: run away. After fleeing the household, they enter a wider world they never knew existed, where the age-old hierarchy of humans at the top is disintegrating, and a robot ecosystem devoted to human wellbeing is finding a new purpose.

Review - In at the Deep End by Kate Davies

Until recently, Julia hadn’t had sex in three years.

But now:

  • a one-night stand is accusing her of breaking his penis;
  • a sexually confident lesbian is making eyes at her over confrontational modern art;
  • and she’s wondering whether trimming her pubes makes her a bad feminist.

Julia’s about to learn that she’s been looking for love – and satisfaction – in all the wrong places…



In at the Deep End is a funny, sweet, incredible sexy and ultimately really thoughtful novel about relationships and how they can go wrong. For all of its outrageousness there's a lovely subtlety to this one too.

I adored Julia and the way she embraces everything with an almost naive enthusiasm and isn't afraid to take a chance on life. The depictions of friendships is just brilliant and the way the flaws in her relationship with her new partner are slowly revealed is very clever.

It's also very rude; you have been warned!
