Holy wow!! Night of the Dragon was everything I loved about Shadow of the Fox, and everything I expected from Soul of the Sword. I was disappointed in the second book – it felt like not much really happened, was lacking the action of the first book, and was overall just underwhelming for a Julie book. (I have NEVER rated anything else of hers under 5 stars! Wth!) It had some serious second book syndrome going for it, which is […]

I absolutely LOVED this origin story of how the crazy yet endearing AIDAN that we know was born! It’s kinda creepy, because you can see where he’s coming from even as he makes horrific choices. He always has the best interest of the fleet in mind, but is murder justifiable for survival? It brings into question humanity, and the morality of weighing one life against many, or even one deemed more valuable. Chilling! Even though this was only 82 pages, […]

CAUTION: SPOILERS FOR GODSGRAVE I am the war you cannot win. Holy SHIT. I basically sobbed through the last like quarter of this book, heh. This book wrecked my feels! Jay, you’ve done it yet again!! We all knew going in that Mia was going to die in the end. However, we didn’t know the deets, and I’m quite happy with how everything played out. It was bittersweet! “You kiss like you kill, Mia Corvere.” “And how’s that?” “With finesse.” […]

If we cannot engineer salvation for our men, then vengeance will suffice. Holy….. FUCK. You. Guys. Like, wow. This book was SO incredibly brutal, it slew me! I knew it was going to be bad, but I never expected how bad. You think things can’t get any worse, and then…they do. PREPARE FOR TEARS, GUYS. It starts off a little slow, but I wasn’t bored with this one like I was with Iron Gold. It’s got a lot of politics […]

CAUTION: MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR LIFEL1K3 So, with the way the first book left off, I was wondering hardcore where that would leave us and what would happen next. The character turnarounds in this one were astounding! I’m sad that Eve is basically a villain now, but it makes for a really interesting story! I’m hoping there’s still some redemption for her in the future. It’s kind of scary how far off the deep end she went after the revelations in […]

HOLY CRAP this book blew me away!!! I really enjoyed Enchantment of Ravens (even though I didn’t think I would), so I knew I’d love this one too. I didn’t expect to love it so much, giving me my first 5 star book in 4 months! The concept was AMAZING!! Our main character, Elisabeth, works as an apprentice in a magical library full of sentient grimoires. Sentient magical books, you guys. MAGICAL. BOOKS. Has there ever been a more perfect book for bookworms?! […]
