List of Fantasy Book Reviewers

At times, finding a good review can feel like the quest to destroy the One Ring. The importance of a review to a writer cannot be understated. Not only does it send a positive message to the world that this is a good book, it gives crucial affirmation to the writer than they’re doing their job.

Below you’ll find a list of dedicated book reviewers, mostly in the fantasy genre. They review all types of publication, from traditional to self.

The best advice I can give is follow the guidelines. Some reviewers don’t like it when you send your story straight off the bat. You have to pitch it to them, sell it, and hopefully, they’ll go for it.

Good luck!
