Review: Stormdancer (The Lotus War #1) – Jay Kristoff

Review: Stormdancer (The Lotus War #1) – Jay Kristoff

*I received a free ARC of Stormdancer from Tor UK via Netgalley in order to write an honest review of this book* The glimpses into Yukiko’s past through the flashbacks are heartbreaking! It explains so much about her, and at the same time, it makes me want that she could still have the innocence, as well as the fellowship she had with her brother and Buruu. It also is an excellent way of providing the back-story, without resorting to info dumping. On that note, I also thought that the maps at the beginning of the book served this kind of purpose as well. Great way to let the readers know about the world, and how things work, with only two […]

The Time Weaver – Thomas A. Knight

The Time Weaver – Thomas A. Knight

*I received a free ARC of The Time Weaver from DragonWing Publishing via Manic Readers in exchange of an honest review* This review of The Time Weaver was originally posted at Risque Reviews on July 6th 2012. The Time Weaver grabbed me from the first line and hauled me inside a crazy world, on a wild ride! I have rarely felt so connected with the main character after just the first line, and I just had to turn the page, see what would happen next, and continue to be amazed. The words are wielded with the same sure elegance Seth learns his magic. Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of […]

Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Infamous was not as satisfying as I had hoped it would be when I started reading. It really felt like a filler book. There was not a lot of progress being made, Nick was younger than in the other instalments, and he was learning little by little what his powers were, or would become. Also, neither Nick or the readers know who he can trust, except for the obvious people, being his mom, Acheron and Kyrian. At the same time, knowing that Nick from the future is coming to give advice to young Nick in the book it is difficult to know exactly how the relationship between Ash and Nick will develop. I usually love it when someone is able […]

Bitterblue (Graceling Realm #3) – Kristin Cashore

Bitterblue (Graceling Realm #3) – Kristin Cashore

Bitterblue was awesome, but I have to start with saying that I love this amazing world of the Graceling Realm and the seven Kingdoms.  I think I actually preferred this final book in the series, both because characters from prior books showed up again and because Bitterblue was such a great heroine.   Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.
