The Three Secret Cities by Matthew Reilly

The Three Secret Cities by Matthew Reilly

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Taking up where The Four Legendary Kingdoms ended, The Three Secret Cities follows Jack and his team as they race to save the world. Again. The stakes are ever higher, the action more gripping with every turned page, and yet in between Really manages to tug at the heart-strings. I read it in one sitting, which probably tells you something as I've struggled with the reading thing for a while now. The things that repeatedly draw me back to these books (aside from the heart-stopping thrills and awesome mix of fantasy, mythology and action) are the characters. While I enjoyed...

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

My favourite kind of book is one where I don’t have to like the characters to find them compelling. Or, to put it another way, I admire authors who write protagonists I dislike but still want to read about, even at 2 in the morning. Such is Letters to the…

Isadora by Charlotte McConaghy

Isadora by Charlotte McConaghy

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Isadora is everything I wanted for the last instalment of The Chronicles of Kaya. It was brilliantly written and emotional, and I raced through it in two sittings. Falco and Isadora are probably my favourite pair from this series.

A gorgeous contemporary novel set in Tasmania, To the Sea was the perfect holiday read for me. Told in multiple points of view over the days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, it conveys a beautiful story spanning generations.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Reviews 1 ★★★★½

Truthwitch is a quick and fun read that I loved. My excitement regarding Windwitch has been rejuvenated. I think this series will be enjoyed by those who like YA fantasy such as Throne of Glass and Poison Study.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

This is the kind of urban fantasy I love – gritty, dark, a little gory, and based on amazing characters whom I couldn’t help but love. This Savage Song highlights the best of Schwab’s writing — awesome story-craft and kick-ass worldbuilding — and introduces us to a world I won’t…
