Those Above by Daniel Polansky

Those Above by Daniel Polansky

January 22, 2016 Reviews 1 ★★★★

Firstly, isn't that cover gorgeous? It's what drew me to Those Above in the first place, that beautiful cover with a giant sword that screamed Read Me. And I was further enthralled when I read the synopsis. A human uprising against the Gods? Sign me up. Those Above, Polansky's first venture into epic fantasy, is the thrilling beginning to a story I cannot wait to explore further. Set in a brilliantly realised world and populated with characters one cannot help but love, it will capture the imagination of many a speculative fiction reader. I think my only real complaint about...

Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

January 6, 2016 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

I loved A Thousand Pieces of You. I ranted and raved about it and practically forced it into the hands of every unsuspecting friend and acquaintance I had. And I’m happy to report that I loved the sequel just as much. Claudia Gray knows how to write a book!

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

November 5, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Kelsea, now firmly settled into her role as the Queen of the Tear, is now preparing for war with the neighbouring kingdom of Mortmesme. The Invasion of the Tearling begins with an incursion into the disputed territory between the two kingdoms and ends with a siege. But the invasion and the accompanying war is only one element in this complicated book, and I’ve loved how Johansen wove all the different threads together to create a masterpiece of a story.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

September 7, 2015 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

Reading The Raven Cycle is painful. But it’s a beautiful kind of pain that I, and many other readers, keep going back for. The lush world building, intriguing characters, and superb plotting suck people in and refuse to let them go. Blue Lily, Lily Blue is a masterpiece. It’s brilliant, evocative, vivid, and, above all, magical.

August 24, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Half the War concludes the journey we embarked on with Yarvi in Half a King, bringing his tale to its stunning conclusion and reminding us why we love to read Abercrombie’s stories so much. This novel encapsulates the best of Joe’s writing and world-building, and has left me awed and wanting more.

The Last Place is the fast-paced, intense, and thrilling conclusion to a spellbinding trilogy. Michael Adams has achieved what few authors can – a thoughtful and enthralling exploration of humanity and the human psyche in the face of an apocalyptic disaster.

Fearless by Marianne Curley

Fearless by Marianne Curley

July 30, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Fearless, the last instalment in the Avena series, concludes Ebony and Nathaneal’s story admirably, and I enjoyed every moment of it immensely. I’ve loved this series since I read Hidden, and am sad to let these characters and their world go.

Resonance by Celine Kiernan

Resonance by Celine Kiernan

July 28, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★

Resonance is a smorgasbord of delights, offering gothic fantasy, historical fiction, and horror in one 450 page novel that will readers spellbound. It certainly gripped me – I read it one sitting on a Sunday afternoon.

Burn by Paula Weston

Burn by Paula Weston

June 17, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

What a glorious way to end off one of the best angel-themed paranormal series I’ve ever read! Burn is everything I expected from the final instalment of The Rephaim, a brilliantly plotted novel where action, romance, and intrigue come together to create magic.
