Review: Forged in Fire (The Vessel Trilogy #1) by Juliette Cross

Review: Forged in Fire (The Vessel Trilogy #1) by Juliette Cross

February 2, 2015 Review 1

FORGED IN FIRE sounded intriguing from the first time I heard of it, so I was delighted to be able to review it here for All Things Urban Fantasy. Unexpectedly, FORGED IN FIRE felt similar to other books I’ve read, with a girl coming into special powers that make her completely unique, and all the men subsequently want her. Luckily, the New Adult tone and the mythology manage to set the story apart from other similar stories.

Don’t be fooled into expecting the usual YA ghostly love story, SUBLIME will entrap those tender expectations and twist them into horror. While the characters are as charismatic as expected from the expert romance duo Christina Lauren, most of the ghostly promise of the plot ultimately fell flat.

Prior to reading SECOND STAR, my only knowledge of Peter Pan came from movies – the Disney animated version and the later live-action one called Hook, so I won’t be focusing on canon comparisons. Second challenge is spoiler avoidance and with this ending? That’s a big challenge.

Review: Endless Knight (The Arcana Chronicles #2) by Kresley Cole

Review: Endless Knight (The Arcana Chronicles #2) by Kresley Cole

The opening and closing tableau of POISON PRINCESS was so powerful, it dwarfs the rest of the book in my memory. ENDLESS KNIGHT, to it’s credit, is more about the overall high than any one, single moment. Evie survives danger after danger, interwoven with the strategy necessary to survive the Arcana, and unflinchingly faces the legacy of her card without surrendering agency or control of her current choices.
