In Saint’s Blood, the third instalment of the Greatcoats series, our heroes Falcio, Kest and Brasti struggle to save their country from an ever-growing threat. Their enemies are smarter and stronger, the world is darker, and the stakes have never been higher. While enjoyable, this book felt repetitive and confused, and like the main characters, I mostly felt tired while reading it.
Knight’s Shadow is a darker, more twisted tale than Traitor’s Blade, but I thoroughly enjoyed where de Castell is taking his heroes. A highly entertaining read that I recommend to those who enjoy a good adventure.
Taking up where The Four Legendary Kingdoms ended, The Three Secret Cities follows Jack and his team as they race to save the world.
Nevernight comes out in August, and I think you’ll love it.
Reading The Raven Cycle is painful. But it’s a beautiful kind of pain that I, and many other readers, keep going back for. The lush world building, intriguing characters, and superb plotting suck people in and refuse to let them go. Blue Lily, Lily Blue is a masterpiece. It’s brilliant, evocative, vivid, and, above all, magical.
Another enchanting and dark fairytale by Sarah Pinborough, Beauty is set before Charm and Poison and allows us to understand those stories a lot better. It introduces us to the prince, the huntsman, a very curious girl, and a deeply disturbing castle.
Brilliantly reimagined and haunting, Charm is a dark and sexy retelling of the Cinderella fairytale with an incredible twist. Charm is a brilliant retelling of Cinderella that takes the well known tale to a whole new level. I am thoroughly enjoying this series and can’t wait to see where the next instalment, Beauty, takes us.
“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.
It’s Time to Be a Greatcoat! An awesome competition!
City of Stairs is an outstanding example of fantasy literature that I have enjoyed immensely. Well-plotted and vividly imagined, Bennett takes readers into a world full of magic, political strife, and (occasionally) murder.
