Review – Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

Review – Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

Mask of Shadows was one of those books that I wanted to like. An assassin competition, a gender fluid protagonist, YA fantasy at it’s finest, sounds like the perfect fit. Unfortunately this book was really nothing more than average for me. Let me start with Sal. Miller’s main character is gender fluid, preferring he/she/they pronouns depending on the situation, which is clearly stated in the story […]

Review – The Dire King by William Ritter

The end is here. No, really, the end of the world is just around the corner and Jackaby has a house full of supernatural creatures while Abigail attempts to create order amidst the chaos. Much like how these novels seem to go. All the players are here as well as a few new ones in the conclusion of the Jackaby series. Though I can’t say the third […]

Review – A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas

I do this thing where, even if I wasn’t a fan of the first book in a series, my curiosity about the sequel gets the better of me so I read it, hoping that it’s better than the first. Rarely is that actually the case. This was not one of those times. A Conspiracy in Belgravia starts the reader off by throwing you in the […]

Mini Review – The Dinosaur Princess by Victor Milan

Mini Review – The Dinosaur Princess by Victor Milan

So. . . I missed the memo that this is not the end of the series. Totally thought this was a trilogy but that is definitely not the case so don’t go into The Dinosaur Princess expecting a conclusion y’all. You’ll find it’s quite the opposite. I’ll be honest, when I started this series I didn’t have high hopes for enjoying the following books. I read them more […]

Review – Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

Review – Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

When I first started reading Tash Hearts Tolstoy, I really wasn’t sure how I felt about the characters. The story was great, and I loved how it showed the negative side to vlogging (and social media in general). The only problem I really had with it was that I couldn’t decide how I felt about a lot of the characters, but I guess that’s life […]

Review – The Dinosaur Knights by Victor Milan

I am happy to report that I enjoyed The Dinosaur Knights more than the first book. How much more? Well, that’s up for debate. The story picks up soon after the end of The Dinosaur Lords following our main heroes in their various travels. And here is where I started losing interest in those characters. To be fair, I wasn’t terribly invested after the last book in more […]

Review – The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milan

Review – The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milan

I had such high hopes for The Dinosaur Lords. While it’s marketed as Jurassic Park meets Game of Thrones, I was more excited about an “adult” version of Dinotopia. You known, dinosaurs and humans co-existing and all that (with maybe a bit of epic fantasy battle scenes thrown in for good measure). The story emerges from a place called Paradise. It’s never made clear if this is a fictional place […]
