Review – Girl in the Shadows by Gwenda Bond

Rule #1 when reading sequels: don’t expect the same as before. I broke this rule when, after finishing Girl on a Wire (which I absolutely loved), I determined that the sequel had to be just as good if not better. Sadly, what I came to realize is that Girl in the Shadows definitely doesn’t live up to the hype from the first […]

Review – The Midnight Sea by Kat Ross

You often hear that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but lets be honest. Many of us are guilty of the practice.

With Kyrian comes Amanda, sister […]

Review – The Forgetting Moon by Brian Lee Durfee

Fans of the traditional epic fantasy akin to Tolkien and George R.R. Martin, fear not! I have a new book for you. The Forgetting Moon is exactly the kind of sweeping fantasy that we all know and love and this book is a monster (like it’s REALLY long) so plenty to keep you busy. I think what I loved most about this book […]

Review – Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes

You have to feel bad for the people of Mythica. Their leaders are fighting amongst themselves and making power-alliances, changing the future of the continent, and causing all sorts of chaos. I’d certainly hate to live there. If you’ve kept up with the series so far, you know that things aren’t all sunshine and rainbows on the small continent. Magnus […]
