great start

"My Soul to Take" is a well-written, fast-paced fantasy/romance about Kaylee, who can predict when someone is going to die. She later learns about why she can do this and the power of her screams. Despite tackling some difficult issues, the book is somewhat light hearted and very entertaining. The...

great collection

This collection consists of a novella and two short novels put together in a first "volume." As they are pretty short, this is on par with the length of other YA books. I really enjoyed this first installment. The background for why and how Kaylee is who she is is...

fantastic!

"The Raven King" is a glorious end to a magnificent series. This series has quickly become one of my all time favorites. It is written poetically and lyrically, absolutely stunning style, but not flowery/boring. This final book is captivating and moves quickly, providing resolutions the reader did not even realize...

not for me

"The Crown's Game" is not quite what I expected. It portrays two magicians-in-training, Vika and Nikolai who both want to be the tsar's sorcerer. To do this, they must compete in the Crown's Game against each other where one will wind up dead. For me, the story just fell a...
