Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

April 21, 2017 Review 0

This gorgeous illustrated novel is one of the scarier things I have read. Nearly a collection of short stories, the tale is told by three strangers around the table of an inn. It’s a story about war, plague, human weakness and vampires.

These vampires are original and disgusting. The translation of the horrors of the Great War as literal monsters is very effective.

Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

April 3, 2017 Review 0

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: 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.
