Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Windwitch by Susan Dennard

January 16, 2017 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

I devoured Windwitch. It was almost impossible to put down from the very first page!! This, folks, is how you craft a sequel. While Truthwitch focussed on Safi, Windwitch lets Merik take centre stage. I admit I was wary about this change -- a series with four protagonists can run the risk of shifting the focus away from characters I care about and want to spend more time with. Though I did spend less time with Safi, she had enough presence in the minds of the other protagonists that I didn't have time to miss her. I was instead watching...

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

November 22, 2016 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I enjoyed Aerie a lot. It’s different enough from Magonia that it doesn’t suffer from second-book syndrome but keeps true to the things I loved about the first instalment. I’ll be back for more (if there is more!) and recommend it to those who enjoyed Magonia or like Neil Gaiman’s works.

I loved Thorne. This story world has grown on me and I’ve come to respect McConaghy’s storytelling. I love her characters and her prose, and am looking forward to reading Isadora in August.
