Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

If I am the first person to recommend NIMONA to you, drop whatever you’re doing and check out the three first chapters, available as an excerpt. If you don’t fall in love with Nimona and Lord Ballister Blackheart, there is possibly something terribly wrong with you – or your sense of humour.

Review: Johannes Cabal The Necromancer (Johannes Cabal #1) by Jonathan L. Howard

Review: Johannes Cabal The Necromancer (Johannes Cabal #1) by Jonathan L. Howard

This book drew me in from about ten feet away on the shelf. The whole thing is beautiful and feels old in your hand. The story of Johannes Cabal’s fight with the devil takes place in a demonic fair ground, where he is charged with stealing away 100 people’s souls in a year in order to exchange it for his own (which he carelessly sold to the devil a few years back – he figured a scientist wouldn’t need it!).

Review: The Burning Page (The Invisible Library #3) by Genevieve Cogman

Review: The Burning Page (The Invisible Library #3) by Genevieve Cogman

March 24, 2017 Review 0

THE BURNING PAGE combines the best of THE MASKED CITY and THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY to produce a madcap, world-jumping caper. With the return of Alberich, stakes are high and Irene and Kai have no idea who they can trust, inside or outside the Library. A thrilling read, THE BURNING PAGE should delight any fan of the Invisible Library series.

5bat! Release Day Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

5bat! Release Day Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

March 14, 2017 Review 1

I love fairy tale retellings, and I especially love retellings of Beauty and the Beast, and so I was primed to fall in love with HUNTED from the very start. With its beautiful cover and intriguing description, I was so excited to read it – and luckily, HUNTED did not disappoint.

Early Review: How To Tame a Beast in Seven Days (The Embraced #1), by Kerrelyn Sparks

Early Review: How To Tame a Beast in Seven Days (The Embraced #1), by Kerrelyn Sparks

March 6, 2017 Review 0

When I saw Kerrelyn Sparks’ name pop up, I instantly wanted to read this book; her Love At Stake is one of my guilty pleasures. Imagine by surprise when this book featured a meatier fantasy setting than her other vampire/urban fantasy series! I raced through this book as the intrigue, magic and love story developed. It was an enchanting read with fabulously loveable characters and both humour and tragedy throughout.

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

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

February 3, 2017 Review 0

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.
