Trigger Warning: Rape I have some very mixed feelings on this book, which is going to make it super hard to review. I love mythology, so the basis of this book is a total win for me. However, I was not a fan of the writing style at ALL. The prose is very, VERY dry. That was probably my biggest issue with this book. It’s told in past tense, first person – which is usually my favorite, because I tend to connect […]

Three words for you: Asian. Folklore. Reimagined. If that doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will! I loved the culture, mythology, and folklore in this one! It was amazing to see different mythology from different cultures in Asia, and I also loved hearing where each author drew their inspiration from. The stories were very hit or miss for me, but the few really amazing ones definitely made it worth the read! Favorite stories: Eyes Like Candlelight by Julie […]

So…I really don’t know how to write this review completely spoiler-free. So readers beware! While this book wasn’t quite as good as the rest of the series, I did enjoy it and it was a good ending to a great series! “You are my peace and my home. You are the everything.” You have to really feel for Jack and Nikki…despite everything they’ve done to be together, the world just keeps working against them. It’s very tragic! But the great […]

Man, did this book have wonderful potential. I wanted so badly to love this – it had fabulous mythology, originality, and I was in love with the fact that our main character is a Harpy. In the beginning I was rather enjoying it. The setting was awesome – Tartarus! – and there was a big monster thing called a Draken; and I thought it was awesome that the MC, Zephyr, was not only a Harpy with blue hair and wings, that […]

I had some trouble connecting to this one. I still really enjoyed it, but for the most part I didn’t love it like I did the first two books. I didn’t feel much throughout the novel except a bit of shock…until the end came. I saw the sacrifice coming, but it still affected me. I was surprised by the sadness I felt!  Ash was still the same fierce, fiesty MC that I loved from the previous two books. She stayed strong no […]

This book was adorable! It was a cute and fluffy feel-good read. I can always count on Kiersten White’s stories to make me feel happy warm fuzzies! “I can be whole without depending on someone else, thank you very much.” And that is how I like my leads to be! Isadora and I would be great friends in real life. I loved that she didn’t immediately attach herself to Ry, despite his interest in her. She was capable of standing on her […]
