Angel Arias by Marianne de Pierres

Angel Arias by Marianne de Pierres

November 22, 2012 Reviews 3 ★★★★★

Not many sequels surpass the original work, but Angel Arias achieves this gargantuan feat with relative ease: it’s just as eerie and beautiful as Burn Bright, but quickly becomes a darker and edgier tale – one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Naif’s growth is the most striking aspect of this book…

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

This dazzling debut has everything I love about the Fantasy genre; it features heartwarming characters, is set in a vivid new world (with dragons!) and deals with conflicts that I could immediately relate to. While…
