THE TOMBS captured my attention with the alluring promise of a forbidding city and a young woman struggling with unexplainable powers. I was enthusiastic to read a historical fiction novel and found the stylized cover intriguing.

Release Day Review: Sinless (Eye of the Beholder #1) by Sarah Tarkoff

Release Day Review: Sinless (Eye of the Beholder #1) by Sarah Tarkoff

January 9, 2018 Review 0

When I pick up a new dystopian novel, I’m always hopeful that the author will put a new spin on the genre. But at it’s core, SINLESS is nothing new. Tarkoff has found a different, problematic way to divide society, but the same beats exist. The hero is at first blind to the horrors of her world, then her eyes open, and she decides to revolt and become the savior everyone apparently needs.

Review: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

Review: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

December 20, 2017 Review 0

WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS is an important, excellently-crafted novel. If you love magical realism, you’ll gorge yourself on metaphors, similes, and imagery. However, like most magical realism books, WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS is heavy on emotional growth but light on plot.
