Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep

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.

Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews

Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews

The battles in the tournament are something else. In them, we learn something about Kate, and she is forced to do something and risk giving away her past which she is trying to keep secret. She is worried about how others will react to this piece of her past. I’m not going to say what it is, because, spoiler. You’ll just have to read the book to find out.

I love the way Lorelei changes her voice so well. I believe she is Mercy. Mercy comes alive like she is someone I can get in my car and drive to. (It would be a bit of a drive for me since I’m in Michigan, and I believe she is in California. I don’t remember exactly, I do remember it would be a drive through several states.) Not only does she nail Mercy, in my opinion, but she gets the other characters too.

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

It’s always nice listening to stories being told by the author. Stardust is narrated by Neil Gaiman. It was more like being told a bedtime story by my parents when I was younger than the usual reading of a book we’ve come to expect.

The Reach Between Worlds by Cameron M. Hayden

The Reach Between Worlds by Cameron M. Hayden

The story was somewhat interesting. There are a few times Taro almost gets caught, and he gets lucky just squeaking by. There is also a test the students must pass. This test could mean their lives though. They all must work as a team, or they all fail. On this test, things get dicey, as they fight for their lives with something making them go mad.
