Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

It’s been a while since I was so grossly disappointed in a sequel. This book has severe second book syndrome. I loved Raybearer, but everything I loved about about it was missing from this book. In my review of Raybearer I praised the richly enchanting world – that it was vivid and and captivating, and that the culture saturated the story – and we got none that in this book. The core relationships of the first book are also missing. […]

Brigid Kemmerer is really hit or miss for me. I think I lucked out when I enjoyed A Curse So Dark and Lonely as much as I did. Maybe I just needed to be in a certain mood for it, who knows. I didn’t like the sequel much, and I felt pretty much the same about this one. My main gripe is that this book is generic AF. It’s such a vanilla story – the world, the characters, even the […]

This one was okay, not great. I don’t remember much about it, to be honest, because I was severely bored throughout the entire story. However, narration by Jonathan Keeble was absolutely fantastic and kept me going. Spot on voices for each character and brought the story to life! I’ll probably seek out more works by this narrator. He saved the book for me, because I probably would have DNFed if I’d physically read it. The world was interesting but the […]

I enjoyed this one while I was reading, but even a week after finishing I had already forgotten most of the details. I liked the viking aspect, the gods, and the setting; and the pacing was quick, which made for an easy read. I also found the prose to be enjoyable and engaging. But sadly the characters didn’t do much for me. I didn’t connect to any of them, and the romance moved a bit too quickly for me. I’m […]

I picked this up on a whim, and to be honest I went in expecting not to enjoy it very much. I ended up being surprised because while it wasn’t great, it was still a fairly decent read. It was pretty generic as far as high fantasy goes and doesn’t really stand out in the sea of fantasy. But Blake’s writing style was solid and the book was able to hold my interest. I enjoyed it for the most part […]
