Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

It’s been a while since I was so grossly disappointed in a sequel. This book has severe second book syndrome. I loved Raybearer, but everything I loved about about it was missing from this book. In my review of Raybearer I praised the richly enchanting world – that it was vivid and and captivating, and that the culture saturated the story – and we got none that in this book. The core relationships of the first book are also missing. […]

This story was BEAUTIFUL!! This is probably one of the most unique books I’ve read in some time. I absolutely loved the world – I wanted to crawl into the pages and live there, it’s so magical! The cover is stunning and the story inside absolutely matches the cover. The fast pacing makes this book a quick and easy read, and the enchanting quality of the story keeps you turning pages. I gobbled this story up! You don’t know very […]

It actually took me two tries to get into this book. *hides* The first time I just wasn’t in the mood. I didn’t make it very far before I moved on. The second time went a lot better! It does start a little slow, but once it picks up it’s a pretty good read. It gets super intense in a few points! I really enjoyed it while I was reading it, even though it didn’t really stick with me like […]

Overall, this book was extremely generic. I feel like it didn’t bring anything new to the table as far as fantasy goes, and it just felt like a mashup of a bunch of other stories I’ve read a million other times before. The writing is also very bland. However, that isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did for the most part. I was a little bored in the middle, but it maintained my interest enough to […]

I felt like I was on drugs reading this book. Either I was on drugs reading it, or the author was on drugs writing it. Don’t get me wrong, I like weird. And this book was nothing if not unique. But sometimes the wtfery got a bit thick even for me, and more than once while listening I said out loud, “wait, what?” or “I don’t even know what the hell is going on.” There were a couple times I […]
