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: Fangs and Fennel (The Venom Trilogy #2) by Shannon Mayer

January 12, 2017 Review 0

It doesn’t take long for FANGS & FENNEL to pick up steam. The fast-pacing of the novel promises a fight or a flee in every chapter. While it seems that everyone in FANGS & FENNEL either wants to kill or kiss her, Alena Budrene just wants to divorce her husband, keep her bakery, and be taken seriously by her friends and family.

Review:  Drakon’s Promise (Blood of the Drakon #1) by N.J. Walters

Review: Drakon’s Promise (Blood of the Drakon #1) by N.J. Walters

December 29, 2016 Review 1

I love seeing different authors’ takes on fantasy creatures and DRAKON’S PROMISE shows us a world where half dragon half human shifters exist. Just hearing the little tastes of Darius’s past and how his powers work and why made me want to read more books about this world before we got to the actual plot of this book.

Review: Shade Chaser (City of Crows #2), by Clara Coulson

Review: Shade Chaser (City of Crows #2), by Clara Coulson

December 27, 2016 Review 0

SHADE CHASER was a rare type of book, where the police work and procedures felt real, despite the supernatural nature of the cases they are investigating. There was paperwork, there was calling for backup when necessary and there were life-altering injuries to important characters.

This is the second book of the series, and although I had questions about the events of the first book, I never felt too confused to not be interested by the current investigation.
