Review – Firebrand by A.J. Hartley

I expected a great deal from Firebrand after Hartley delivered a intricately woven story in Steeplejack and I’m happy to report that the sequel lived up to those expectations. The story picks up soon after the events of book 1 with Ang working for the politician Willinghouse as a private detective of sorts, and she’s about to have her work cut out for her. On its own, Firebrand was […]

Review – Seeker by Veronica Rossi

Review – Seeker by Veronica Rossi

If I’m being totally honest, I’m still not sure where I stand with this book. It takes place several months after Riders, with Daryn off on her own and the horsemen looking for her.  For the record, this post may have some spoilers if you haven’t read Riders as the books are very closely tied together. Of the two, I definitely liked Seeker more. The dual points-of-view moved the […]

Review – Steeplejack by A.J. Hartley

This is the kind of book I want more of in YA fantasy. Steeplejack was entertaining and beautifully written in a city colonized and still dealing with the effects of that, as seen through its structure and its people. Though considered young adult, this book reads a lot more like an adult fantasy in how dense and intricate it is and I am ALL there for it! […]

Review – Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Review – Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I don’t really know where to start with Truthwitch. There were parts of me that loved it with all my being and there were parts of me that was just a little meh with it. The beginning for example was a little rough. There was so much going on and there were so many terms to follow that I ended up being a little lost. […]

Review – Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

Review – Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

I was super pumped about Metaltown and may or may not have swooned when I won an ARC copy. Obviously I needed to read it immediately (I did try though, you know, life). But while there are a ton of positives for this book, my overall impression was meh. Which is the worst because I wanted to love this book so much.  We’re sent into the dystopian world […]

#41 Waiting on… Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

I’m so excited for this book. Yet another of the September 20th releases, I’m in serious need of a good dystopian (steampunk a bonus). It’s been a while since I read one that I enjoyed, actually since I read one period. Anymore they all seem to have the same kinds of plots, the same cliches, and when they were really prevalent a couple years ago, […]

#38 Waiting on… Vassa In the Night by Sarah Porter

So I’ve determined that when September 20th comes around, I’m going to open my door and there will be a pile of pre-orders. Does every book come out on this day? Not that I’m complaining, surely, but I simply do not have the ability to read 10 books in a single day. Fast…but not THAT fast. This title came onto my radar a little over a […]
