The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon

The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Pale Dreamer gives us a glimpse of Paige's life before we met her in The Bone Season, taking us on an adventure through London after some poltergeists. It's an excellent entry point for readers who are interested in The Bone Season series and want to give it a try. As usual, Shannon paints her world vividly, an impressive feat in such a short piece. London's history is folded seamlessly into the world of Scion. Rather than being a filler until The Song Rising comes out, the novella fills in some gaps in our knowledge and gives us an awesome...

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Reviews 0 ★★★★

I enjoyed Aerie a lot. It’s different enough from Magonia that it doesn’t suffer from second-book syndrome but keeps true to the things I loved about the first instalment. I’ll be back for more (if there is more!) and recommend it to those who enjoyed Magonia or like Neil Gaiman’s works.

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful time with Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter, and I’m sad to let them go … but I do have the novellas in Stars Above to look forward to! The idea of blending science fiction, fairy tales, and Sailor Moon may sound odd (I was sceptical at first), but I urge readers to give the series a chance. I don’t think you’ll regret it.

A Tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty

A Tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Coming to the end of any series is a bittersweet experience, but reading A Tangle of Gold – the concluding volume in the spellbinding The Colours of Madeleine series – was especially emotional for me. It’s hard to believe that my adventure with Madeleine and Elliot, and my time in Cello and Cambridge, is over.
