The novel imagines what might happen if we...

Every Breath by Ellie Marney

September 20, 2013 Reviews 2 ★★★★

This book is so good! I was absolutely hooked from the prologue (it’s a punchy prologue!), and it only got better from there! I enjoyed the characters, the mystery, and the vivid sense of place, and am looking forward to the next two books in the series. Set in Melbourne,…

Another case of a supposedly kick-butt heroine falling to pieces the first time a cute boy looks in her direction. Although it is based around an awesome idea – young victims of a deadly virus can come back to life and are used by the government as assassins – Reboot…

The Mystery of the Golden Card by Garth Nix & Sean Williams

May 13, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★

The latest Troubletwisters novel is undeniably the best so far – The Mystery of the Golden Card focusses on Jaide and Jack’s first Warden-related mission and gives readers a lot more action than ever before. I like the development of the characters in this book, both the adults and the…

The Monster by Garth Nix & Sean Williams

The Monster by Garth Nix & Sean Williams

May 8, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★

I think this series is improving: the action is better in this instalment, and the story flows more smoothly. The main premise behind The Monster is intriguing, and it’s definitely executed better than Troubletwisters, but I would have liked to see a discussion of the nature of The Evil and why…

Troubletwisters by Garth Nix & Sean Williams

Troubletwisters by Garth Nix & Sean Williams

May 7, 2013 Reviews 2 ★★½

I’m not in the target audience for this book, so I’m going to try to review this in terms of how I would have liked it when I was (a little) younger. I think Troubletwisters can be summed up rather quickly as simple – simple in plot, characterisation, language and…
