She was iron and fire, a warrior’s spirit with a lion’s heart. While I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as I’d hoped (I loved the Defiance trilogy), it was still an enjoyable read! I love retellings, and even though I never really got super into the Snow White fairy tale, I thought this was a great retelling of it. Wicked stepmother and all. (Except, where are the dwarves?!) The thing I loved the most about this book? DRAGONS. […]

This book was refreshingly unique! I’m kind of glad I steered away from any reviews before picking this one up. I honestly didn’t really have any idea what to expect because I hadn’t read the synopsis since I added the book way back when it was put on Goodreads. So I really had no idea what it was going to be about! I definitely wasn’t expecting an alien book. I loved that, though! In the beginning you really have no […]

I saw Mindee at a signing a while back, and during the panel she said that while writing this book, her mind was in a very dark place. That as a result, this book was dark. Which was why I was so excited to read this: I loooove dark! It wasn’t quite as dark story-wise as I was hoping, but Jeth? That’s another story. He was very dark in this book. It’s refreshing to read an MC with flaws, one that screws […]

As far as high fantasies go, this one was fairly well done but it felt very generic. The pacing was fast, making the 432 pages go by pretty quick. The main thing that ruined my enjoyment of this book is that I felt like I’d already read it before: In Throne of Glass. There were too many similarities – strong, ass-kicking orphaned heroine, a dead queen talking to her in her dreams, a princely untouchable love interest, …and a quasi love triangle […]

I’m sorry to say that this book is my least favorite of the series, but I still enjoyed the journey and I like the way everything was wrapped up in the end. And something I liked – this book was really dark. Most of the book is a major struggle for both Logan and Rachel (especially Rachel). There was a lot of gloom and doom, which really drove home the desperation of the characters. Sadly the pacing was horribly slow through […]

So…I really don’t know how to write this review completely spoiler-free. So readers beware! While this book wasn’t quite as good as the rest of the series, I did enjoy it and it was a good ending to a great series! “You are my peace and my home. You are the everything.” You have to really feel for Jack and Nikki…despite everything they’ve done to be together, the world just keeps working against them. It’s very tragic! But the great […]
