Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

This story expertly re-orients readers in the world Sanderson created in Steelheart, and gears us up for the followup which is coming out next year.

Mitosis takes up with David shortly after the end of Steelheart, where the citizens of Newcago are dealing with THE THINGS that happened in the book and the new role that the Reckoners have to fulfil. We also get glimpses of our some of our favourite characters from Steelheart, including Abraham, who hates hot dogs, and Tia, who is still taking care of David and making sure he's OK.

I love David's character, especially his...

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Auri is a gentle, beautiful, wondrous soul, and her adventure in this novella is heart-warming. I loved every page. I loved getting to know the hidden places that only she visits. I loved discovering a completely new place, naming it, and arranging it so it was just so. I loved the illustrations that made this book so sweet.

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Child Eater is a fantastical story about two boys, born in different worlds and centuries apart, who are bound together by magic and fate, and a monstrous creature known only as The Child Eater. He has preyed on generations of children and their ghostly voices cry out for help, cry out for someone to end their curse.

The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley

The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley

Reviews 0 ★★★½

The Emperor’s Blades is one of my most anticipated reads of 2014. It sounds like a promising début: an awesome world populated by people who aren’t all white, some sinister sounding magic and politics, and a story following the Emperor’s three children after his death.

The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

Reviews 2 ★★★½

I wanted to love The Unbound as much as I did The Archived. And I think, until I sat down to review it, I did. But I’ve sorted out all my feelings for it now and have realised that I don’t think it lives up to the brilliance of its predecessor.

The Glass Republic by Tom Pollock

The Glass Republic by Tom Pollock

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Tom Pollock writes a mind-blowing sequel with The Glass Republic, adding spice to the story he began in The City’s Son by switching protagonists and introducing a previously unexplored aspect of his alternate-world London.

Erased by Jennifer Rush

Erased by Jennifer Rush

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

I think Erased is a perfect sequel. Everything I loved about Altered is present in full-force in this novel, with a few bits of extra awesomeness thrown in for good measure! I have always loved how mature and focussed the protagonist, Anna, is. She didn’t get caught up her relationship…

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

Reviews 1 ★★★★

This book has blown me away! I really liked it, and am looking forward to more. The world is ending! Well, no, but something very weird does happen to Dean on his way to school one morning: mega hail takes out his school bus and suddenly he and a bunch…
