Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

January 23, 2017 Review 2

THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE is nearly everything I wished it would be. After hearing comparisons to UPROOTED, THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE had a lot to live up to, UPROOTED being one of my recent favorite fantasy books. Luckily, it was a delightful read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Review: RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

Review: RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

January 20, 2017 Review 1

ROSEBLOOD is, for lack of a better word, a bit weird. Billed as a young adult retelling of The Phantom of the Opera, it reads more like a sequel to its inspiration, rather than a retelling. Dark and mysterious, ROSEBLOOD has a lot going for it, but it just didn’t live up to what I felt it could have been.

Review: The Fate of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #3) by Erika Johansen

Review: The Fate of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #3) by Erika Johansen

December 9, 2016 Review 2

THE FATE OF THE TEARLING left me with lots of feelings. The first two-thirds of the book were rock-star. And, to be fair, the last third of the book was good too, it just wasn’t what I was expecting. So, without spoiling anything, I am going to try to review this book for you. First of all, if you read the first two, definitely read the third. You’ll want the closure that it provides. And if you haven’t read the first two, I definitely recommend them. The trilogy has a very different feel than a lot of other fantasy trilogies, to its benefit.

Review: The Mountain of Kept Memory by Rachel Neumeier

Review: The Mountain of Kept Memory by Rachel Neumeier

November 14, 2016 Review 0

I was so excited to read THE MOUNTAIN OF KEPT MEMORY that I barely got past the comparison to Robin McKinley in the description. And while I loved it, I didn’t quite love it, if you know what I mean. I had a few complaints, but overall, this is a beautiful standalone fantasy with intrigue, action and a little bit of sweet romance.
