I am a child of hell, and I have spent too long in their heaven. My goodness. This book was SO slow. There was soooo much politics and war strategy throughout 75% of this book, and I was growing severely bored with it. The pace was extremely slow as compared to the first book. I was rather sad that it wasn’t as special as the first book was. Despite that, I was still intrigued by the premise. I love the hierarchy […]

I am right. He is wrong. I am the spark that will set the worlds afire. I am the hammer that cracks the chains. What the slag made me wait so gorydamn long to read this book?! This book was awesome! It totally took me by surprise. I’ve been seeing it around everywhere since it came out, have witnessed many readers raving about how amazing it is, and still I put off reading it. Why? I don’t even know. I guess […]

I’m going to be honest, I only picked this up to see what all the fuss was about. Not that it didn’t sound interesting, but I probably would have never given this book a second thought based on the cover. After seeing everyone RAVING about it, and even hearing Mindee Arnett mention it at a book signing, I knew I had to get my hands on it. And I did enjoy it. But, I’m afraid the hype might have lessened […]

After all the hype over this series and Stacia Kane’s work, I was expecting much, much more. I’m afraid I ended up being disappointed. To be honest, I almost DNFed this one in the first 100 pages. It didn’t get interesting for me until around 170 when Tyson entered the story, and it finally picked up. That’s a little too much boring for my taste.   My next problem was that I felt like I was dumped in the middle of […]

I had mixed feelings about this book. I loved it for the simple fact that it was unique and unlike anything I’ve ever read before. Zombie/Post-Apocalyptic/Steampunk/Victorian all in one…wow! I really enjoyed the history of what went wrong in the world, particularly America, and the physical explanation for the Laz. Fascinating and well developed. The world building was great too, I was able to get a very good hold on the atmosphere Habel painted.   The characters though, not so […]
