Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Honor above life. This book is dark. Gritty. Violent. But it felt raw and realistic, and was heartbreakingly beautiful! What a kickass viking fantasy! I had zero problem picturing everything in my head as it was happening. Young’s stunning prose brought the world and characters to life. It was cinematic! The characters were compelling and real. The characterization of this book is phenomenal. Even the side characters were important. I found myself attached to each and every one of them! The sense of family […]

Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

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 […]

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

A princess must have her prince. This book was so delightfully twisted! I loved the dark concept of the sirens and their tradition of taking human hearts for every year of their life – literally. Like I said, twisted! It was basically a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid – the original one, by Hans Christian Andersen. Definitely no Disney here, folks. Lira was fierce AF! She took only prince’s hearts, thus her moniker was Princes’ Bane. Bad. Ass!! She had a great […]

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

It’s been a long time since I read Nyxia, so I don’t remember much of it. While it didn’t stick with me like I’d hoped, I did really enjoy it while I was reading! I love sci-fi, so this one was definitely a Jessi book. I loved the concept of the Nyxia itself, soooo awesome! I loved the idea of being able to control it and mold it into whatever you want with your mind. I definitely look forward to […]

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

“My star-touched queen. I would break the world to give you what you want.” To be honest, when I picked this up I had NO idea if I would like it. Actually, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t. But my girl Hope raved about it, so I picked it up anyway. And I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed it! This book really shone in the last half, after the pivotal moment of the book, especially once Kamala […]

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Why do we desire, above all other things, that which has the greatest power to destroy us? A little backstory first: I am SUPER picky about fae books. In fact, there’s only two I can think of that I’ve genuinely enjoyed: The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa and the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Before this book came out, the hype was unreal. I was DYING to get my hands on it, and the ARC reviews were positively glowing. […]
