Broken Sky by L. A. Weatherly

Broken Sky by L. A. Weatherly

Reviews 1 ★★★½

I enjoyed Broken Sky, the first book in The Broken Trilogy from the very first page. Something about it just grabbed me. The setting and the concepts it explored were interesting, and the protagonist was awesome. Set in the far future after a horrendous apocalypse that nearly killed off all humans, Broken Sky is set in an echo of the 1940s. Humanity has rediscovered some technologies and is on the verge of unearthing some more. I liked the touches Weatherly used to bring this reality to life - the slang, the technology, the clothes. This world differs from ours in...

Night Study, the fifth instalment in the Study series, and second in the Soulfinders series, is everything we’ve come to expect from Snyder. Exciting, action packed, full of twist and turns that will keep you guessing, this book will leave you desperate for more.

Marked by Sue Tingey

Marked by Sue Tingey

Reviews 1 ★★

I feel oddly duped by Marked. I was expecting a paranormal-urban fantasy with some detective/crime vibes, and what I got was a paranormal romance that reminded me of the Merry Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton.

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Reviews 4 ★★★★

I found a lot to like in Glass Sword. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a stronger sequel by far. It rose above the admittedly low bar that Red Queen had set. A good sequel that builds and expands on the foundations of its predecessor.

Those Above by Daniel Polansky

Those Above by Daniel Polansky

Reviews 1 ★★★★

Firstly, isn’t that cover gorgeous? It’s what drew me to Those Above in the first place, that beautiful cover with a giant sword that screamed Read Me. And I was further enthralled when I read the synopsis. A human uprising against the Gods? Sign me up. I really enjoyed Those Above. It has moments of brilliance where it transcends expectations, and at all other times is an entertaining and glorious read. I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!

The Next Together by Lauren James

The Next Together by Lauren James

Reviews 1 ★★★★

I’m a sucker for reincarnation stories, so I’ve been looking forward to reading this since I heard about it. I loved The Next Together – the concept is amazing and the execution is brilliant! I loved every moment of my time with all the different versions of Katherine and Matthew. The Next Together transcends the traditional boundaries of genre to give readers a unique story.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Iluminae has to be one of the cleverest books I’ve read in a long time. It’s a brilliantly crafted story that has everything – a terrifying AI, an interstellar war, explosions in space, romance, and dark humour. With its gorgeous artwork and unusual presentation, Iluminae is a feast for the eyes. It’s a vivid, emotional, exciting read that will hook most readers.
