Review policy

Bibliotropic focuses on SFF reviews. Primarily fantasy, but science fiction and urban fantasy are also read and reviewed, as well as YA novels from those same genres. I don’t typically review novels from other genres.

I do accept review copies of books provided they are within the genres I read and review, as mentioned above. If your book doesn’t fit within those genres, then I am not the reviewer for you.

Accepting a review copy is not a guarantee of a positive review, or even a review at all. I accept books for review consideration. I won’t accept a book I have no interest in, but I cannot guarantee that I will be able to review every single book I receive.

I write both positive reviews and negative reviews, so long as I feel like I have something constructive or worthwhile to say about a book.

I do not typically tend to read books that are heavily militaristic, or heavily romantic. Those are my big literary turn-offs.

Keep in mind that I am a non-binary/genderqueer individual, asexual, and with chronic health problems. As such, if your novel disparages such minorities (or any minorities, really), then I am not going to react favourably to them.

With all of this in mind, if you would like to discuss or arrange anything, please feel free to send me a message at

  1. Dear Ria Bridges

    I was thrilled to note that two of my books were listed in your queue: Commandment and Dominion. First of all, I’d like to thank you for your interest- I know there is a multitude of works to choose from and I am an unknown author.
    Commandment is actually the sequel to Dominion- they describe a single story and were originally intented to be in one larger book but divided for easier digestion. Don’t let the cover of Dominion fool you, it isn’t a ‘Christian’ story really but a mix of pagan and (mild) Christian overtones. The two stories highlight a fairly unique heroine and her ambitious struggle in an ancient world. And you are right, it is a dark fantasy realm I describe.
    I simply plead that you read both stories before casting the final judgment. The first story (Dominion) is necessarily slower that the sequel (Commandment), which really takes off.
    I’d love to discuss your thoughts about the story with you.
