The Schooled in Magic series has fast become one of my favorite series of the year. At some point, I’ll have to go back and relisten to them so that I can get a review up for each book. I just finished the seventh book in the series, TRIAL BY FIRE. A lot of series start to lose steam by the fifth book or so, that is not the case with Schooled in Magic. TRIAL BY FIRE continues the series perfectly.

Review: Heart of Malice (Alice Worth, #1) by Lisa Edmonds

HEART OF MALICE was a great introduction to what could be a pretty amazing new urban fantasy series. It ticks every box for a classic urban fantasy story: tough as nails heroine escaping from a past, fun magical abilities, and interesting enough plot complexities to carry a series with over multiple books.

A villain becoming a hero and love interest in a later book doesn’t always work, but NEW MOON manages to make its hero likeable without wiping the slate clean. Sebastian has done some truly terrible things, but redemption, and maybe true love, is well within reach.

5bat! Review: A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge

In A FACE LIKE GLASS your face will freeze like that. Maybe it’ll be stuck in Face No. 456, Joyous Rapture at Excellent Characters, or Face No. 943, Unbridled Excitement for Plot Development. Either way, you’ll be smiling throughout. In the world of Caverna facial expressions have to be taught. The poor only know a few expressions (happy and dutiful) while the rich learn all the intricacies.
