5bat! Release Day Review: Creatures of Will and Temper by Molly Tanzer

5bat! Release Day Review: Creatures of Will and Temper by Molly Tanzer

November 14, 2017 Review 0

I finished CREATURES OF WILL AND TEMPER in one day. I must confess I have a particular weakness for Victorian settings, courting, and excessive blushing. Combine that with fencing, demons, and queer characters and you have my very devoted attention. Finishing this novel had me desperately searching for more of Molly Tanzer’s work.

Review: A Poison Dark and Drowning (Kingdom on Fire #2) by Jessica Cluess

The description for A POISON DARK AND DROWNING covers what happens in maybe the first quarter of the book – and it’s better that you don’t know what happens later. Like the first installment in the Kingdom on Fire series, this book is full of emotional ups and downs that left me reeling (in a good way) and desperate for more.

Review: A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan

Review: A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan

September 7, 2017 Review 0

With its small doses of magic and potions, A SECRET HISTORY OF WITCHES is more a historical novel than fantasy. The novel follows six generations of Orchiére women handing down their witchcraft. As knowledge is passed down, elements are lost or corrupted. It doesn’t take long for ancestral rituals to be forgotten in the face of a changing society.

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

January 23, 2017 Review 2

THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE is nearly everything I wished it would be. After hearing comparisons to UPROOTED, THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE had a lot to live up to, UPROOTED being one of my recent favorite fantasy books. Luckily, it was a delightful read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

5bats! Review & Giveaway: A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire #1) by Jessica Cluess

September 21, 2016 Review 6

A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING was one of my most anticipated books of the fall. I’ve been looking forward to it since March. So you can imagine how happy I was that it lived up to my high expectations. Honestly, this book just killed me. There were moments that were like a kick to the stomach. There were moments where I was so happy for Henrietta. It was an up and down rollercoaster of emotions that I loved every second of.
