While not normally drawn in by retellings of the The Snow Queen (Beauty and the Beast is more my style) COLD SPELL surprised me with its originality and unique take on a lesser known fairy tale. I enjoyed the twists and turns in the story and the way Pearce spaced it out, giving the reader small bits and pieces as the story progresses. With a strong female lead character, action and a tender romance, I couldn’t have asked for anything more from COLD SPELL.

Fans of X-men and Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series will fall in love with the MetaWars. With scientific enhancements and mutations that are all but magic, this politically messy series contains a world that has remade itself over and over again. And despite that complexity, I jumped in with CHIMERA and found myself up to speed and invested from page one.
STONECAST is one of those books that I had a hard time reviewing. While well written and paced, and creative (alchemy and gargoyles aren’t something we see everyday in the genre) there were a lot of aspects of the story itself that I didn’t like, so while it may appeal to others, it wasn’t as big a hit for me as ALCHYMISTIC, the first book in The Spellmason Chronicles was.
As I’ve been waiting for BITTERSWEET MAGIC since about three minutes after I finished BITTERSWEET BLOOD, the first book in The Order series, I think we can easily say I was pretty excited to read this book. Luckily, even though I had a few issues with BITTERSWEET MAGIC, it lived up to my expectations for it, and I was completely enthralled by Roz and Piers, and now I can’t wait for the next book in this series!

LONG LIVE THE QUEEN was a wonderfully twisty, fun, and dark steampunk tale that held me with such rapt attention I didn’t want to put it down. The fact that I so enjoyed this third book in the series is pretty good considering it was my first foray into The Immortal Empire. The writing is superb and I adored the fact that past book
