Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Firefight is a wonderful sequel to the heart-stopping Steelheart, delivering all the action, adventure, and fun that readers will expect. It’s an explosive adventure that captured my imagination, and has left me sad that I have to wait so long for the next instalment, Calamity.

Brilliantly reimagined and haunting, Charm is a dark and sexy retelling of the Cinderella fairytale with an incredible twist.

Poison by Sarah Pinborough

Poison by Sarah Pinborough

Reviews 1 ★★★★½

“A wicked, delicious, sexy Snow White fairytale.” Poison is a scrumptious retelling of a classic tale that re-imagines the world and the circumstances of our beloved characters. Pinborough’s evil queen is more sympathetic than expected and her Snow White is adventurous and sassy.
