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

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.

5bat! Review: Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

5bat! Review: Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

November 16, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

While the best of Urban Fantasy can balance character growth and enthralling world building, sometimes a book puts all its eggs in one basket. TELL THE WIND AND FIRE has a world, and though the politics and geography can be a bit odd, the magic is well developed. None of this matters a whit, however, when compared to how much I loved Lucie.

Review: The Mountain of Kept Memory by Rachel Neumeier

Review: The Mountain of Kept Memory by Rachel Neumeier

November 14, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

I was so excited to read THE MOUNTAIN OF KEPT MEMORY that I barely got past the comparison to Robin McKinley in the description. And while I loved it, I didn’t quite love it, if you know what I mean. I had a few complaints, but overall, this is a beautiful standalone fantasy with intrigue, action and a little bit of sweet romance.
