Review – The Lost Plot by Genevieve Cogman

I wasn’t really sure where The Lost Plot would take this series. After finishing The Burning Page last year, I felt like the series had all but wrapped up (I think it was only supposed to be a trilogy at first?). There was a bit of a disconnect with this fourth book. Part of this may be from the length of time between reading […]

Review – Blackwing by Ed McDonald

I went into this book wanting to love it but with the expectation that it would disappoint me because that’s how reading has gone for me lately. Perhaps not the best mindset to have before starting but it did set me up to be pleasantly surprised when I became hooked from the first page. My second grimdark fantasy of the […]

Mini Review – Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black

I think this might be the first book I’ve read involving aliens. And it wasn’t too bad. I think what struck me first was that Ninth City Burning seemed to have its own unique edge on the whole alien business. I’m not all that familiar with alien sci-fi, granted, but I liked how it brought in more fantastical elements, different dimensions, […]

Mini Review – Brimstone by Cherie Priest

I think my expectations for this book didn’t quite line up with the reality. From the synopsis, it almost sounded like some sort of romance (though not quite) but I soon learned that the book alternates points of view between the characters mentioned, Alice and Tomas. Not exactly what I thought and the result was a story that I never fell […]

Review – Red Queen by Christina Henry

In Red Queen we have the sequel to Christina Henry’s Chronicles of Alice series. I suppose I hoped for more than this book could offer. Where Alice attempted horror mixed with an odd fantastical theme, Red Queen was a whole other ballpark. Tame isn’t quite the right word but in comparison to the first installment it fits. This book doesn’t have the same horror-esque elements […]

Review – Alice by Christina Henry

Oh Alice, dear, where have you been? You don’t seem to know yourself. A shame. For your thoughts are jumbled and you are positively mad. Truly. Just ask your Hatcher there on the other side of the wall of your cell. Yes, this twisted re-telling of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland begins with the insane, locked away where no one need […]

Review – Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

Usually when a series hits around books 4-5, it’s hard to really talk about anything new without giving away spoilers so if you haven’t read the first four books of the Mercy Thompson series, stop reading now. Silver Borne has, so far, been my least favorite book of this series. I liked Moon Called and Blood Bound but when the […]

Review – Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

The higher the expectations… I love this series and couldn’t wait for Dead Reckoning. This might have affected my view of the book because I was really disappointed. After having read books 1-10, my expectations of book 11 were pretty high. However, I found myself putting it down to do something–anything–else. It just didn’t hold my attention and seemed like […]
