We are daughters of the wood. It’s hard to review this one, because I loved the concept but I felt quite indifferent about it in general. I was excited to read it because I loved The Wicked Deep, but this one fell short. My main issue was complete apathy. I didn’t care about what was happening, I didn’t care about the characters, nothing. The magic and mystery were intriguing, though, and that’s what kept me going. I saw a few people […]

Wow, what a wild ride!! This book was explosive and action packed from start to finish! The second book dragged in the beginning, but this one definitely did NOT have that problem. There was never a dull moment! I have to say, Emily Suvada never disappoints when it comes to dropping bombs. So many surprises! “We’re both monsters, Jun Bei. That’s what they made us into. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do good in this world.” Jun Bei was ruthless […]

In case you missed my review for Sanctuary, I absolutely loved the first book! It was gripping, the aliens were chilling, and I loved the dark Alien-esque feel it had going for it. It was a space horror through and through and kept you on the edge of your seat. This book? Not so much. There was some major Second Book Syndrome going on here. The parts that I loved so much about the first book – namely, the scary aliens […]

I loved the concept of Phoenix Riders!! The world was truly phenomenal – well thought out and painstakingly built. It felt real! I could tell Nicki put a lot of thought into it. It was excruciatingly detailed without annoying info dumps. The info was well placed and spread throughout the whole book, giving you an in depth understanding of the world without being overwhelming. Also, I LOVE stories where a girl dresses as a boy! Sadly, that was where most of […]

There’s still hope as long as we’re alive. Okay so this one didn’t quite wow me like This Mortal Coil did, I’m afraid. I struggled a lot in the first half – I was feeling slumpy already and I wasn’t loving it like I did the first book. I was bored. So, I decided to put it down for a while. I read something else (Ship of Smoke and Steel, which I did NOT like), and the break was just […]

The truth is that when you’re facing death, there’s no telling what you’ll do. WHY did I put this one off for so long?! Oh my lord!! I had seen it around back when it first came out, but they hype died down and I really never see it mentioned anywhere. I had a feeling I’d love it, but I put it off anyway. I didn’t really know what to expect going in, and I ended up being BLOWN AWAY! […]
