You'll Love This Because ... "Never flinch. Never fear. Never forget." That first chapter! Clever, Jay, clever. It's set on a planet with three suns and "truedark" comes like ... never (okay, every 2.5-3 years!), which gave me ALL THE ASTRONOMY FEELZ. Mia Covere is a Darkin - the shadows give her power. Her father led an unsuccessful rebellion and was killed for his trouble, and she's sworn revenge on his killers. She's uncouth, smart, and brave. I liked her tremendously. There's an ASSASSIN BOARDING SCHOOL!! Because where else would she learn how to extract her revenge? I...

A Tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty

A Tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty

March 28, 2016 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Coming to the end of any series is a bittersweet experience, but reading A Tangle of Gold – the concluding volume in the spellbinding The Colours of Madeleine series – was especially emotional for me. It’s hard to believe that my adventure with Madeleine and Elliot, and my time in Cello and Cambridge, is over.

I really enjoyed The Sin Eater’s Daughter! It combines a few refreshingly unique concepts with a cool fantasy world and some interesting characters. It has its flaws, but I could overlook them because of its conceptual brilliance and lush storytelling.

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.

Marked by Sue Tingey

Marked by Sue Tingey

February 3, 2016 Reviews 1 ★★

I feel oddly duped by Marked. I was expecting a paranormal-urban fantasy with some detective/crime vibes, and what I got was a paranormal romance that reminded me of the Merry Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton.

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.
