Witchshadow by Susan Dennard

Witchshadow by Susan Dennard

July 10, 2021 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

I sped through Witchshadow, despite my best attempts to savour the experience of reading it. I love this story-world and its characters, and happily devoured the fourth instalment of the Witchlands series.

As with each book before it, Witchshadow builds on the existing world by enriching its history and revealing a few secrets. The emergence of the oh-so-mysterious Paladins adds a new dimension to the story -- not only do readers have to keep track of an ever growing cast, they now have to remember how each character fits into the complex mythology of this world. It can be exhausting...

June 4, 2020 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Sightwitch is a clever prequel told from Ryber Fortiza’s point of view that sheds light into the events of Truthwitch and Windwitch. Although it’s a prequel, I think readers are best placed to read it after the first two full-length novels.

Tithe by Holly Black

Tithe by Holly Black

February 17, 2020 Reviews 0 ★★★

Having loved The Darkest Part of the Forest, I was expecting something surreal and creepy from Tithe. While it delivered on those fronts, it also felt confused and half-hearted. Tithe took a long time to begin. The first part of the novel felt disjointed and slow. It may have been…

The Secret Runners of New York by Matthew Reilly

The Secret Runners of New York by Matthew Reilly

April 26, 2019 Reviews 0 ★★½

I’m a massive fan of Reilly’s books. I preordered this book the moment it was available for preorder, picked it up on release day, and read it in one sitting. The Secret Runners of New York combines time travel with high school, following Skye Rogers as she starts at a…
