With all of the GLOWING reviews of this book, everyone raving about how amazing it was, how amazing Tamlin was, I was DYING to get my hands on a copy. I would have almost bargained my first born to get my hands on it. I begged Twitter if anyone would let me borrow it. (Thank you Kelly for letting me borrow yours!) And the fact that I didn’t love it like everyone else is kind of soul-crushing. (It has a […]

It was so much fun to read this series again! I’m still surprised by how much I had forgotten about this series. It never really stuck with me the way The Wayfarer Redemption did, but it was amazing nonetheless! I loved the part with the Axis and Inardle in the ice hex, and the story behind the River Angels was riveting! I had completely forgotten that. The One was as creepy as I remembered, and it was satisfying to see […]

There was a lot of talk about the Threshold in this one, and it made me wish that I had read her book, Threshold. I would probably have known much more of the backstory on the pyramid, the One, and the magi! “I find all my strength in the beat of your heart.” It was kind of amazing how Ishbel and Maxel fell apart so badly only to come back together stronger! And ok how about Ravenna? How could I forget […]

This series is actually a spin-off of The Wayfarer Redemption series (which, if you didn’t know by now, is my favorite Adult series), and this is the second time I’ve read it. I read the entire Wayfarer Redemption series for the third time a couple of months ago, and I’ve been having slight withdrawal ever since. It felt so good to dive back into the world! It’s a totally different timeline and different setting than the original, but it’s in […]

I enjoyed re-reading this series so, SO much, and I’m sad that it has to come to an end! I’d forgotten how easy it was to be consumed by this world. It’s so unique and complex! Sara Douglass has truly created a world like no other, and perhaps that’s why this series stuck with me after 10 long years. I know it will stick with me for years to come, as well! Holy crap, there’s so much death in this […]

I had forgotten how….disturbing the TimeKeeper Demons were! Holy crap, some of the parts made me cringe so hard. But there were a lot of other grotesque and disturbing things that I hadn’t remembered. There are some pretty unsavory things in this story. But that’s not really a bad thing, because if Demons were ravaging the world, isn’t that what one would expect? Douglass brought them to life in their terrifying and monstrous nature. I found that I still remembered […]
