Vincit Omnia Veritas. Truth conquers all. I absolutely adore Kristen Simmons, you guys! I always enjoy everything she writes and this book was no different. Well, it was very different for Kristen, but I enjoyed it all the same! This is her first contemporary – everything else has been sci-fi. And she rocked it! I loved the idea of the book – a school for con artists! It was oh so fun and unlike any other contemp I’ve ever read. Brynn was […]

This book wasn’t even on my radar until I picked up a free ARC at YALLfest, and it sounded super intriguing so I thought I’d give it a go. I also thought for some reason it was an Asian fantasy (it is sooo not), so I was excited to read it. I hadn’t heard much about it, either, so I didn’t know what to expect. Sadly, I ended up being disappointed. The main issue I had was with our main […]

Kristen sure has a way with writing characters and building worlds! There wasn’t a huge amount of action in the first half because she spent a lot of time really building up those parts. And it made them feel so vivid and real! The pacing is a bit slow to start, but it gives you time to savor the world and understand it, and also savor the character development. Kristen also has a way of writing an empowering story of […]

No second book syndrome here, folks! Wowza! Seeker was just as explosive as Riders was! “Real gold is the value of truth. It’s friends you respect who respect you back. It’s what we have – you and me. That’s real gold.” My favorite part about this book – besides the horses, of course – is the very strong sense of family that the group of Riders and Daryn have going for them. They literally risk their lives to look for […]

This was Metaltown. Things didn’t change in Metaltown. You changed, and if you didn’t you paid. Beautifully written as always, Kristen! This book was dark and gritty, and perfectly portrayed the struggles of the world. It was such a beautiful and (and heartbreaking) story! I love that it showed the power of rising up and letting your voice be heard. The unfairness of everything really struck me, I thought Kristen did a fabulous job driving that home! I really felt for the characters and […]

At first I could take or leave this story. While intrigued, I had some issues connecting in the beginning for two reasons: One, our MC is male, and two, the way the story was told. I’m not a fan of reading in a male’s POV, because well, I’m clearly a female, and I can’t relate. I can’t get on board a romance with another female because I like males. So automatically, the romance is out. As for the way the […]
