Fantastic Book

Wow. This was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING book that just took my breath away. Cassandra Clare combined myth and magic and just plopped it down into the modern world, creating a fabulous setting that kept me hooked. I found this book at my school's Spring Fair. Me...

Purely Fantastic

I think that this book definitely reminds of the fact that people are people, even though they might not be "Pure", or perfect, as many people aren't. Probably, of all the eight million people on the planet, most of them are definitely not pure. Most are probably poor and starving,...

Iron King

I must admit, Iron King isn't the best book in the series in my opinion, the series gets much better, but it is still a great book. I loved watching Meghan grow throughout the book, from a naive sixteen year old girl, all the way to the half-blood daughter of...

Three Cheers for Ash's POV!!!

I liked how we finally get to finally be in Ash's mind, it made him seem not so mysterious, and a lot of the mysteries about what he felt/what happened with Ariella/Meghan, were solved. It was probably for the best that it was about Ash because, imagine if it were...

A Story About Finding Out Who We Truly Are

More is just not enough: Keep it coming, Andrea!

The second book in the Nightshade series. When Calla was captured and she woke up with her sworn enemies, I was holding my breath and just hoping they didn't hurt her too badly. Though, when they offered for her to join them, I knew she would accept and that this...

The most amazing book

(sigh) the last of the series... (although I do hope that Andrea will write another). It was perfect. I was on Team Shay the entire time, and I realised how difficult it must be for Calla, struggling between two boys. I was pretty much bawling my eyes out when Ren...

Magic, romance, and WOLVES

I think that Calla was a great protagonist, struggling to balance between love, duty and loyalty. She has a colliding nature, one side wanting to follow her orders and just do what she is told, but the other side of her wanted to rebel, to go against what everyone else...
