The only complaint I have about this book: It wasn’t long enough. The stories within a story were awesome and really set the scene (even though I didn’t really know it). The tale of the dragon was very witty and I really liked the Ice Flower story, but my favorite was the new take on a werewolf stemming from Alchemy. Very interesting and unique! The touch of steampunk was pretty cool too! The relationship between Rolph and Tara moved a bit […]

DNF Review: The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

I had heard good things about this book, so I bought it. I am now regretting that decision. I made it through 200 pages, more than halfway…and was absolutely bored to death. Everyone talks about the fey being real, but you don’t really see many glimpses of them. There was little to no plot in my opinion and the story was not convincing. The characters didn’t have any personality. There was little to no action. I would have liked to […]

I. HATE. LOVE. TRIANGLES!!!! Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system. I was thoroughly unimpressed by this book. The plot was good, sure, but it just lacked for me. Even the ending –  with everything falling apart and the death of an important character – felt rushed. Maybe because I was skimming to get to the end and get it over with, who knows. It wasn’t a bad book necessarily, but it wasn’t memorable at all. Her prose […]

This is another one that I didn’t really know what to think of at first. The first page instantly grabbed my attention with talk of Oberon, Titania, and Puck from A Midsummer’s Night dream. While I can’t stand the Shakespearean language (mainly because it’s way above my head, ha), I love the lore of the courts – mainly because of reading the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. So, after this first page, my expectations were set high.    Then I […]

I didn’t really know what to think of this book. It started out really slow and although I love paranormal stuff, this story didn’t seem to sell very well at first. It came off as a little cheesy and cliche in some spots, but as the story started to pick up I actually found myself enjoying it. I almost gave up a couple times, but after like page 150 or so it finally gets interesting.   In the beginning Zara […]

This is hands down my favorite series. The entire saga is just incredibly written with so many twists and turns and dark secrets. I love the world that Karen paints with brilliant and masterful words! I just read this one again so I am writing this review now. When I finish my library books, I’ll start back up with the re-reading the rest of the series and review those too. Reading this for the second time was almost as thrilling […]
