Book Review: The Game of Love and Death

Book Review: The Game of Love and Death

I was surprised by the lyrical writing in The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough. It really heightened the fantasy and romance in this historical fiction novel. Antony and Cleopatra. Helen of Troy and Paris. Romeo and Juliet. And now . . . Henry and Flora. For centuries Love and Death have chosen their [...]

Book Review: Sorcery of Thorns

Book Review: Sorcery of Thorns

Margaret Rogerson has truly solidified her spot on my favorite authors list with her sophomore release, Sorcery of Thorns. I thought I loved An Enchantments of Ravens, but it was nothing like my experience with this book. All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one [...]

ARC Review: The Fever King (Feverwake, #1)

ARC Review: The Fever King (Feverwake, #1)

I actually went into this book fairly blind to the plot and I am so glad that I did. The Fever King (Feverwake, #1) by Victoria Lee was such an interesting and engaging story, weaving current societal themes into a dystopian fantasy. In the former United States, sixteen-year-old Noam Álvaro wakes up in a hospital bed, the [...]

ARC Review: Pride

ARC Review: Pride

When I received this ARC at BookCon last year, I was really excited. I love a good retelling, especially one that is able to bring a completely new spin to the original story. And while Ibi Zoboi's Pride was able to take the story in a new direction, it wasn't even close to living up to my [...]

Book Review: Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3)

Book Review: Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3)

Let me preface this by saying that two years is too freaking long to wait between releases for a fantasy series. Luckily, I enjoy this series too much that I won't hate on Susan Dennard for pushing back Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3). Fans of Susan Dennard's New York Times bestselling Witchlands series have fallen in love with the [...]

Book Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely (A Curse So Dark and Lonely, #1)

Book Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely (A Curse So Dark and Lonely, #1)

To say that I've been dying until this book was released would be a bit of understatement. I was able to snag a sampler at BookCon last year and was immediately hooked. And I am happy to say that A Curse So Dark and Lonely (A Curse So Dark and Lonely, #1) by Brigid Kemmerer, lived up [...]

Book Review: The Kingdom of Copper (The Daevabad Trilogy, #2)

Book Review: The Kingdom of Copper (The Daevabad Trilogy, #2)

I cannot truly convey how excited I was to pick up The Kingdom of Copper (The Daevabad Trilogy, #2) by S.A. Chakraborty. I absolutely adored the first novel and have been dying for this release ever since I finished it. S. A. Chakraborty continues the sweeping adventure begun in The City of Brassconjuring a world where djinn summon [...]
