The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

March 18, 2019 Reviews 0 ★★★★

The third instalment in this series begins almost immediately where The Mime Order left off - with Paige coming to grips with the deception that had been revealed to her. But her tenuous grip on the Mime Order and uneasy alliance with there Rephaim leave her with very little time to recover, especially when a new threat is revealed.

With Nick and Eliza backing her every step of the way, Paige flourishes on the page as a fledgling leader. She makes mistakes and has doubts but she's a smart, capable and willing ruler who is determined to be more than...

The Pale Dreamer gives us a glimpse of Paige’s life before we met her in The Bone Season, taking us on an adventure through London after some poltergeists. It’s an excellent entry point for readers who are interested in The Bone Season series and want to give it a try….

I enjoyed Broken Sky, the first book in The Broken Trilogy from the very first page. Something about it just grabbed me. The setting and the concepts it explored were interesting, and the protagonist was awesome.

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

February 1, 2016 Reviews 4 ★★★★

I found a lot to like in Glass Sword. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a stronger sequel by far. It rose above the admittedly low bar that Red Queen had set. A good sequel that builds and expands on the foundations of its predecessor.

The Heir by Kiera Cass

The Heir by Kiera Cass

May 28, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I liked The Heir, I think it takes the idea of The Selection and does something new and different with it. I liked getting to know Eadlyn and her siblings, and seeing all my old(er) favourites from the original series.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

March 16, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★

An admirable début novel that combines a rags-to-riches story with a dystopian world and the powers of the X-Men, Red Queen will please a varied audience. I enjoyed reading it but have to concede that there is almost nothing original about it, and that it ultimately failed to wow me in the way that it could have.

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

November 17, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Never Fade is a powerful followup to Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds, a book that I absolutely loved. I have really enjoyed Never Fade, which has surpassed the excellence of its predecessor and has me super-excited for In the Afterlight.
