Review: Treasure & Treason (Raine Benares #8) by Lisa Shearin

Review: Treasure & Treason (Raine Benares #8) by Lisa Shearin

TREASURE & TREASON, the book I assume Raine Benares fans have been clamoring for, features Tam and Phaelan. AMAZING, am I right??? These two characters, the reformed dark magic practitioner goblin Tam and the endlessly amusing magic-fearing pirate captain and thief Phaelan, together – just the idea is spectacular. Reading TREASURE & TREASON is a treat, especially for fans of the series, and even new readers would find something to love, I suspect.

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: 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: 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.

Early 5Bat! Review: Of Fire and Stars, by Audrey Coulthurst

November 21, 2016 Review 0

OF FIRE AND STARS had me hooked from the prologue, when Deena picks up a hot ember with her bare hands, much to the horror of her mother and sister – not because she’s burnt herself, but because she hasn’t. Deena has an affinity for fire magic, and although it’s easy to overlook in her home country, she’s been betrothed to the prince of a neighbouring kingdom where magic users are persecuted, exiled and killed.
