Audiobook Review: Soundless by Richelle Mead

Audiobook Review: Soundless by Richelle Mead

February 19, 2016 Review 1

I really enjoyed Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series, and I loved her Bloodlines series, so I was eager to try SOUNDLESS and see what she could do in a different world. However, I wasn’t pulled into SOUNDLESS in the same way I was the Vampire Academy universe.

Review:  Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by Brenda Drake

Review: Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by Brenda Drake

January 28, 2016 Review 1

THIEF OF LIES had an interesting premise with teens being able to travel through the world by books in libraries around the world. That’s what drew me to the story and after I finished the book I felt overwhelmed with information about this world that I think I understand. Is this a world where the magical world is hidden like in HARRY POTTER?

Release Day Review:  The Casquette Girls (The Casquette Girls #1) by Alys Arden

THE CASQUETTE GIRLS is a fascinating and haunting paranormal YA novel. The plot starts off a tad slow though once it gets started it really moves. It’s a tale that takes some of New Orleans’ more famous ghost and vampire stories and gives them an even more sinister bent. I loved the setting as its a city so entrenched in mystery and has its own very colorful history.

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Assassins of Altis (The Pillars of Reality #3) by Jack Campbell

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Assassins of Altis (The Pillars of Reality #3) by Jack Campbell

November 16, 2015 Review 0

THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS starts right where THE HIDDEN MASTERS OF MARANDUR left off, and the action, romance, and political intrigue of the previous books continues superbly in this one. My number one fear for THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS was that the plot would start to stall. I’ve seen this happen with a lot of books like this, but Jack Campbell clearly has the whole Pillars of Reality series thoroughly plotted out, because I never felt it stall.

Review: Newt’s Emerald, by Garth Nix

October 25, 2015 Review 0

With high action, loveable characters (and some quite despicable ones), and an Austen-like setting, NEWT’S EMERALD is a fun ride that is perfect for younger readers, while still having enough to interest adult readers.

It’s a good thing that Truthful grew up with a gaggle of boisterous boy cousins; when her family’s heirloom emerald is stolen, dressing up as a boy to scour the streets of London is as easy as donning a glamour-enchanted mustache and imitating her cousins.

So I’m a bit biased, as I tend to love books with robots and artificial intelligence, but THE SCORPION RULES was spectacular. Full of intrigue, plot twists, drama and robots, it felt intense from beginning to end, keeping me on the edge of my seat as I breathlessly rushed to finish it.
