Loved the twist on angel-demons

This book had me hooked – right from the lovable protagonist, to the mystery, to the paranormal aspect of it. Audrey is the daughter of a superhero – at least that what’s she thinks her mom is – but one night when she is attacked by something out of this...

Great finale

I was a little bit hesitant to read this book – I loved the series so much and when I would read this, that world would end. Cross gave such a good end to the series in Timestorm. The first half of the book had Jackson and the group trapped...

X-men meets Twilight

I haven’t read a vampire book for quite some time now – it has been all dystopians and sci-fi for some while now. In the beginning, it came off as a bit Twilight-ish and then it felt a bit like Bloodspell (by Amalie Howard) but (not...

Like an appetizer

The Dangerous Dream spin-off series is already looking great. I am rubbing my hands with glee to see what shenanigans can Ridley get into. This prequel novella sets the story a bit, while leaving you wanting for the first book. How can a 46 page novella do that to me,...

Most were good

Fairytale retellings in an anthology – I was so drawn in by it. I have read anthologies before, but I don’t think any retelling-based ones. So, while it took me some time to finish it, thanks to some slow stories around the middle of the book, I am glad I...

Adorable!

Oh, Laini Taylor! I love her writing and if I thought I couldn’t love it more, Night of Cake & Puppets just did. It had the most magical first date in the history of writing, ever! I declare Mik X Zuzana to be my new favorite OTP from the Daughter...

Dark and deep

Firstly, this book exceeded expectations. I mean, Weather Witch was okay, in my opinion, and I had not come to expect much from it’s sequel. Where Weather Witch had a languid pace and a very short plot-line, most of which was not focused on the heroine of the series, Stormbringer...

Excellent story!

The first thought that comes to my mind after reading The Almost Girl is that it had really good story-building. Alternate universes, with one technologically far ahead of ours, from where a duty-bound soldier girl comes into ours. Also, in that world, children are brought up differently, and basically are...

Pantomine is a such a refreshing fantasy novel. The protagonist, Micah, a young runaway who joins the circus, is hiding from the law and trying to carve a life for himself. He is trying to live the life he wants, not the one his parents had meant for him. It...
