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.

Review: Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn

Review: Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn

March 7, 2017 Review 0

Martians Abroad has a great premise. Kids who were born and grew up on Mars coming to Earth for school. Boarding school stories are a little over done, but they can still turn out to be great. However, as I started to read Martians Abroad I realized that a lot of the problem with the story was the original premise.

Review: The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

Review: The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

February 7, 2017 Review 1

Well, THE EDGE OF EVERYTHING was nothing like what I expected it to be. There was a lot of hype surrounding this book, and I was really excited to read it. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations of what it should have been, based on all the praise it had.

Review: RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

Review: RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

January 20, 2017 Review 1

ROSEBLOOD is, for lack of a better word, a bit weird. Billed as a young adult retelling of The Phantom of the Opera, it reads more like a sequel to its inspiration, rather than a retelling. Dark and mysterious, ROSEBLOOD has a lot going for it, but it just didn’t live up to what I felt it could have been.

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.
