Witty, magical, and well imagined, The Shadow’s Curse reunites readers with their favourite characters and places while introducing new ones to love.
This book is about dragons! DRAGONS!! How excite!! I’m really disappointed with it because Kagawa did incredible things by subverting everything we knew about vampires and dystopia with The Blood of Eden series, but in Talon we’ve gone back to mediocre (and annoying) characters and shaky world-building that made me dislike the Iron Fey books.
Twelve rounds out Ava’s journey admirably, and although I am sad to let her go, I have enjoyed every moment of my time with her and Caleb. This is the kind of paranormal fantasy I love to read, and I’ll be looking out for Franklin’s future works with great interest.
The Bone Whistle closes out the adventure that started six years ago with Darcy and her five friends stumbling into another world. It’s a bittersweet conclusion to their story and I enjoyed it a lot.
Out of Control is a heart-stopping adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter. It includes Alderson’s trademark action and amazing characters and takes on an issue rarely seen in YA fiction.
Come Back to Me is my favourite kind of NA story. It’s about more than just a hot romance. It’s about family and friends and dreams and love in all its incarnations. I think it’s a beautiful story and have really enjoyed reading it!
Take Me On felt very samey – it felt like Crash Into You with mixed martial arts instead of drag racing. In fact, it didn’t really even feel like Crash Into You because I believed where Crash Into You was coming from and I found this whole book utterly unbelievable.
Peacemaker is an exciting and creative narrative that skilfully combines elements of westerns, science fiction, fantasy and crime to create one of the most engaging books you’ll read this year.
I have loved every moment of my time with Allison, and although I am sad to let her go, I think The Forever Song concludes the Blood of Eden series very well. I think Kagawa, who set out to tell a completely different kind of story by combining the best of vampire fiction and dystopian settings, has achieved it masterfully.
Episode I: The Tyranny of the Trolls. Troll Mountain is an exciting fantasy adventure focussed on seventeen year old Raf, who lives in a village that is plagued by a strange illness.
