The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

March 13, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Oh. My. I loved The Bone Season, but its sequel has taken my breath away! The Bone Season allowed us to explore Sheol-I in-depth, but robbed us of the opportunity to understand Paige's Scion-London. The Mime Order gives us the chance we'd missed, opening up the world - and Underworld - of Scion London through Paige's return. Yet again I was transported into this world from the first page and was loathe to leave it (because life kept getting in the way!).

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

I never thought I’d sympathise with Levana. She’s been this amorphous blob of evil in The Lunar Chronicles for three books, and although I never doubted that her past would make an interesting story, I certainly didn’t think it would make me understand her.

The Fell Sword by Miles Cameron

January 20, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

The Fell Sword is a great sequel to Cameron’s fantasy début The Red Knight, expanding the world and delving deeper into its history, introducing us to new characters and giving us the tools to understand our favourites better, farewelling a few characters, and most importantly, giving a glimpse into the grand scale of the five book Traitor Son cycle.

Catalyst is the final instalment of the amazing science fiction series that began with Insignia. Tom Raines faces new challenges in this book and faces them with his usual combination of bravery and brashness.

Sacrifice by Brigid Kemmerer

Sacrifice by Brigid Kemmerer

January 12, 2015 Reviews 4 ★★★½

Sacrifice is the final book in the Elementals series by Brigid Kemmerer. When we met the Merrick brothers in Storm, they were a very different group of young men than the ones we hang out with in this book.
