Captivate by Vanessa Garden

Captivate by Vanessa Garden

Reviews 0

Captivate is an ambitious novel, and although I saw a lot of potential in the blurb, I have to confess I’m mostly disappointed by it. Here is the premise of Captivate: Marko is the king of an under-water settlement of humans, and he’s usurped his psychotic elder brother Damir’s throne….

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Reviews 2 ★★★★

It’s taken me five months to get around to reading Siege and Storm, and I hope I can be forgiven for avoiding it because I thought nothing could live up to how amazing Shadow and Bone was. In terms of action and plotting, this is a better book than the…

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Reviews 2

There are few writers in the world who can tell a story with as much emotion as Maggie Stiefvater. Fewer still who can write romance stained with horror, desire mixed with fear, sweetness swirling with red-hot anger. The Dream Thieves takes up with Blue and the gang shortly after the…

This is a post apocalyptic world like no other. Not a Drop to Drink is a book concerned with survival, pure and simple, and isn’t confused by an over-controlling government or vampires or revolutions. Not a Drop to Drink follows two women and tells of their struggle to survive in an…

Storm Watcher by Maria V. Snyder

Storm Watcher by Maria V. Snyder

Reviews 1

Storm Watcher is a poignant and compelling read which had me on the verge of tears more than once. I came into this book thinking, hoping, it was a paranormal fantasy, perhaps about a boy who can channel the power of a storm. Storm Watcher is a heartwarming contemporary about…

The Iron King by Maurice Druon

The Iron King by Maurice Druon

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

I hate the word unputdownable. I really do. But I’m going to use it, because that’s exactly what The Iron King is: terribly difficult to put down once the cover is cracked. I shouldn’t be surprised as the series comes highly recommended by none other than George R. R. Martin…

Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

Reviews 1 ★★★★

A real page turner, Poison Princess had me intrigued from the start: grabbing my attention and not letting go. The premise is wonderfully intriguing, and although I didn’t initially like the characters, they grew on me, and now I can’t wait to follow their adventures in the next books of…

The White Thread by K. B. Hoyle

The White Thread by K. B. Hoyle

Reviews 1

With each successive Gateway Chronicles book I find myself increasingly absorbed by the world and characters that Hoyle has created. The White Thread does not disappoint. Since readers are following the same six characters from the age of 11 to about 18, I expect we will get to see them…
