Book Review – A Poison Dark and Drowning by Jessica Cluess

Book Review – A Poison Dark and Drowning by Jessica Cluess

The follow-up to Jessica Cluess's magical young adult fantasy, A Shadow Bright and Burning (read my review), is equally as compelling and dramatic. A POISON DARK AND DROWNING continues Henrietta Howel's journey in the magical society of the Order, but she harbors a secret to ...

Audiobook Review – A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Audiobook Review – A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Set in London during the Victorian era, A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING is a decent beginning to Jessica Cluess's Kingdom on Fire series. While the characters and plot are both rather generic, the darker setting and bits of action pulled me in. Henrietta is thought to be the ...

Book Review – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom was the book I was most looking forward to reading this year. The depth and edge-of-your-seat suspense that Leigh Bardugo delivered in Six of Crows was nearly absent in Crooked Kingdom. Uneven pacing and lack of character growth was Crooked ...

Book Review – Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Book Review – Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Wickedly dark with twists and turns, Three Dark Crowns is a good beginning to Kendare Blake's newest series. The book is rather long and I certainly felt its length in several parts, but I enjoyed the magical elements and the characters' journeys. The island of Fennbirn ...

Book Review – The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

Book Review – The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

Book Review: The setting combined with the interesting premise of a duel to the death made me pick up Skye's debut. I enjoyed the author's vivid depictions of the Russian scenery but the romance felt contrived rather than organic. The Crown's Game is initiated by the ...

Book Review – The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

Book Review: The Glittering Court is the first book in Richelle Mead's new fantasy/historical-like series that I would describe as an Elizabethan "The Bachelor with ladies' choice" meets colonial America meets the Gold Rush. That's a lot to take in, I know. As a loyal fan ...
