Review: Legion – Julie Kagawa

Review: Legion – Julie Kagawa

Legion brought my favorite dragons and their struggles to a complete new level of epicness! The action and the final fight at the end gave me heart palpitations! Because of the way Soldier ended, I knew there would be some heartache in Legion, but I had no idea just how much! Ember, however, stepped up and took on all the responsibility she could – while staying true to herself and her beliefs. The plan Talon was putting into action was chilling to say the least, and I really didn’t think things would end well. Main feel was probably fear! After being captured by Talon, Ember learned that her own fate was supposed to be much bleaker than anything she could […]

Review: Soldier – Julie Kagawa

Review: Soldier – Julie Kagawa

Betrayal, pain, action, fights, loyalty, love, hope, strength… Soldier encompassed all of that, and more! With a skillfull pen, Kagawa gave me an amazing story with Soldier. My main feels were of excitement and suspense, with a dash of romance, and possibly regret as well. Ember was torn between her human and dragon side more than ever, and this involved her in a strangely addictive and comprehensible love triangle. The action was fast-paced, the past tense and third- or first-person narration from various characters’ perspective made sure that all sides of the war were intimately covered. There were more than one twist I never saw coming, and I was completely out of breath by the time Soldier was over. We […]

Review: Rogue – Julie Kagawa

Review: Rogue – Julie Kagawa

Rogue was filled with action, fights and deep betrayal. Following four characters, it was fast paced and a quite quick read. My Rogue review: The tension in Rogue was very different form that in Talon, because Ember knew she was being chased, both by the Order of St. George and Talon. At the same time, Ember stayed true to her character, wanting to do what was best for everybody, not just herself – to the point where she disregarded personal danger to save someone else. I loved how strongly she held on to her beliefs, and how devastated she was when she had to use ultimate force in order to save her own life in a battle. Because of the […]

Review: Talon – Julie Kagawa

Review: Talon – Julie Kagawa

Talon is different, because dragons. At the same time, there are some very familiar themes where sometimes a war is fought because of what they are used to, and because of the fear of those who are different. My Talon review: First off, I just need to let you all know I’m a huge Kagawa fan! Her stories are always somewhat different, and the universe in which her characters evolve original even while in a genre I am already familiar with. This is also the case in Talon, where the world-building is well done, even if I still have questions after reading the first story in the series. I enjoyed how Ember was trying to think outside of the box, […]

#COYER Review: The Forever Song (Blood of Eden #3) – Julie Kagawa

#COYER Review: The Forever Song (Blood of Eden #3) – Julie Kagawa

*I received a free ARC of The Forever Song from Harlequin TEEN via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Forever Song is devastating, gripping, epic, strong and dark. The perfect ending to the Blood of Eden series, it made me cry (yes I love to feed Ms. Kagawa’s muse – I’m wondering where I should send my tears!) and cheer, it made my heart almost beat all the way out of my chest, and I believe my eyes almost fell out as well. Beware – tissues are needed in plenty, but my oh my, what a ride! Some of the most amazing plot-twists I have ever had the pleasure to read appeared in The Forever Song, and I […]

Review: The Iron Traitor (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #2) – Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron Traitor (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #2) – Julie Kagawa

*I received a free ARC of The Iron Traitor from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Iron Traitor bears it’s name very aptly! And it completely and utterly broke my poor, poor heart. But in a good way. Yeah, my heart can actually be completely be shattered in a good way, it seems, I had no idea that was even possible until I finished The Iron Traitor. Please forgive me for starting with the end – there’s one of those cliffhangers where you just wonder what you just read – and how the heck that can be the last page of the book! But for once, I actually wasn’t upset about the cliffie. Ethan and […]

Review: The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) – Julie Kagawa

*I received a free ARC of The Immortal Rules from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* I don’t even know where to start in my praise for The Immortal Rules. I loved every single thing about it. The world-building was extremely well done, I could see the gritty, half-rotten buildings in my mind. I could smell the mold, and my stomach was churning with hunger. Both the character-driven story and the way the plot moved forward was expertly done as well. I felt connected to several of the characters, not only the main ones, they were well fleshed out and it was actually possible to understand their motivations. Even when I didn’t agree with their thinking, […]

Review: The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1) – Julie Kagawa

Review: The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1) – Julie Kagawa

*I received an ARC of The Lost Prince from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* There are a couple of things that happen in The Lost Prince that are actually explained in Iron’s Prophecy so if you have that one, I think it would be a great idea to read that first! The Lost Prince is everything I dreamed it could be, and more! I’m sure we can all guess how things are going to play out – right? Well, things don’t really go according to Ethan’s plan at all, but there is a lot of action, new friendships, and a mystery that has to be taken care of. Ethan finds out a lot more both […]
