Their glory days long past, the mercs have grown apart and grown old, fat, drunk, or a combination of the three. Then an ex-bandmate turns up at Clay's door with… Continue reading Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
I was engaged in this story pretty much from page 1. I loved the plot, characters, and setting. Not that the setting is any place I would want to live, but I felt it was something a bit new, and different from what I've read previously.

Review: Winter’s Fury
Almost right from page 1, I was hooked. The writing in this, did something I had not experienced in a long time. I picked it up and did not want to stop. I had a hard time finding "good places" to stop for the night, or before going to start my work day, and all too often, had to put it down desperate to know what was about to happen. I became slightly more productive at work because I was so focused on getting what I needed to done, because I wanted to get back to the story as quickly as possible.
The City We Became by N K Jemisin
Oh my goodness! The writing! The characters! The descriptions! I couldn't get through this fast enough. I loved this book!
Kingdom of Liars | Review
Nope, just nope. I couldn't finish the book. I managed 75%, and I dragged myself for most of that. The most exciting part of this book was the prologue.
Crush the King by Jennifer Estep
Queen Evie has been playing the long game with the King's sister, a sister who he doesn't acknowledge and isn't even really considered a royal because she is a bastard. The conclusion to this long game, is one I saw as a possibility and I think Evie even mentions it a few times in the books, but the way it played out was, mwah, fantisimo!
Abhorsen by Garth Nix
After a while, this book totally had my attention. After listening to Lirael, I had to wonder if she would accept she was the Abhorsen. This curiosity kept me reading, but additionally wondering if the attack would be stopped.
Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan
This is the first book of Riyria Revelations and contains two stories to this great series. I loved the action, the writing, the character development, everything about this book is glorious. I totally see myself re-reading this in the future; multiple times.
Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep
I very much enjoyed this story. I was just swept away by what was happening to Evie and those around her, while also at key times was very much worried for her. Even though she's the main character and we know she will survive, the fact of her survival being very likely completely left my mind.
