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 […]

“Waging war is the easy part – making peace will be the hardest thing we’ve ever done.” Dan Wells is a pro at storytelling. He brings the world to life! It’s always so easy to imagine the story as real because everything is so convincing. The world & setting is by far my favorite part of this entire series – the world building is cinematic! “You weren’t ‘designed’ to cure RM, but you did it anyway. You weren’t designed to […]

The fact that this novel takes place in space was enough to make me like it. Space stories are so few and far between! There’s a certain magic to the idea of being in space (Treasure Planet!) and this one really captured that magic. The first line was ‘Stealing a spaceship shouldn’t be this easy.’ Talk about getting your attention! It was also very unique. The idea of metatech and metaspace was very intriguing, as were the Pyreans and Empyria! […]

It was very interesting to see things from Ben’s POV! I loved him already, but being in his head made me love him even more. At just about every significant moment in my life, she was there. Whether she knew it or not. The way Ben sees Janelle was incredible. He’s actually quite obsessed with her, but for some reason it was endearing rather than creepy. He changes his schedule so he can be in class with her, stands up […]
