It was delightful to get back to Yelena and Valek after so long, and Shadow Study proves that the magic of some worlds and their characters only strengthens with time. This book is a wonderful beginning to a kick-ass new series that introduces us to a new threat, some new…
The Break-Up Artist isn’t a groundbreaking narrative, but this 2014 début offers a light, fun read about relationships that many audiences will enjoy.
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.
At first glance Countdown looks and sounds too similar to The Hunger Games. But I was pleasantly surprised that the two are can be easily separated (the dystopian and kill-people-for-an-audience elements aside).
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.
This book guys. This book. This story world is awesome. There are ghosts and demons and warlocks, half demons and half warlocks, and people with wings. Wings!
Aimée Carter’s foray into dystopian fiction is an interesting read which I liked, although I am ambivalent about Pawn overall. On one hand, I liked the world and its characters, and on the other hand, I disliked them too.
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.
Consume marks the end of one of my favourite series, The Clann, and although I’m sad to see it go, I think it’s a good note to finish on and am looking forward to whatever Melissa cooks up next. The strength of this novel, as with is predecessors, is the…
Katie McGarry continues to write amazing, heartwarming stories in Crash Into You, and this time she’s finally given us bad-boy Isaiah’s story. I loved this book – it even made me a little teary – and I can’t wait for the next one, Take Me On. Speed. It’s what I…
