Release Day Review: The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan

Release Day Review: The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan

October 10, 2017 Review 0

THE HOLLOW GIRL was written by a Romani to honor her grandmother and their shared Romani heritage. I was drawn in by that fact, excited to learn more about the Romani culture from the point-of-view of a young woman learning magic from her grandmother. However, I feel I must start this review by acknowledging that THE HOLLOW GIRL deals with a trigger warning for sexual harassment, abuse, and rape.

Early Review: The Fire Queen (The Hundredth Queen #2) by Emily R. King

Early Review: The Fire Queen (The Hundredth Queen #2) by Emily R. King

September 22, 2017 Review 0

THE FIRE QUEEN takes the battle royal concept to a fictional and fantastical desert empire whose people worship gods based on Sumerian deities. This time, the teenagers involved are all women and capable of great feats of both magic and strength, which is what drew me to the book initially. The second in The Hundredth Queen series, it does not stray far from the original conceit, as Kalinda is again thrust into a tournament that puts her life and her people at risk. The stakes are raised with the introduction of a love triangle and with multiple people vying for control of the empire.

Audiobook Review: First Watch (Fifth Ward #1) by Dale Lucas

Audiobook Review: First Watch (Fifth Ward #1) by Dale Lucas

August 23, 2017 Review 1

First Watch is an awesome book! I’ve read a lot of steampunk police procedural, quite a few of them I’ve reviewed here. I’ve enjoyed all of them, but they’ve always been a little lacking. First Watch is exactly the book I’ve always hoped the others would be. Let me clarify, First Watch is fantasy not steampunk, but I guess it was the fantasy angle I’d been hoping for in all the others.

Review: The Eldritch Heart by Matthew S. Cox

Everything from the description to the cover of THE ELDRITCH HEART grabbed me immediately. I knew I had to read it. The cover, with its eerie, green heart called to me, as did the back matter that hinted at dangerous politics and a forbidden love between a princess and her handmaiden.

Release Day Review: The Death and Life of Schneider Wrack  by Nate Crowley

Release Day Review: The Death and Life of Schneider Wrack by Nate Crowley

I tried to read THE DEATH AND LIFE OF SCHNEIDER WRACK with my speed reading app but there were so many words that were gigantic or outright invented there was no way that my eyes could keep up at 300 and 400 words a minute. I’m glad I slowed down; when I did I started really enjoying this book that is more akin to Alice In Wonderland than it is to most other zombie books.
