Sun Sets on Study Series as Dawn Study Ends

I don’t even know where to start with this book. You know how each instalment of a series is supposed to be more epic than the last? Well, at one point Snyder has something like 28 characters ‘onscreen’, all with different motivations, characterisations, and backstories, including small children with more sass than they have the […]

Goldenhand clearly written by golden fingers

Goldenhand clearly written by golden fingers

First of all, I had absolutely NO IDEA that the ebook I was given to review from Edelweiss was only a partial copy of the book. There was no warning anywhere – I had to stumble over an announcement made on Goodreads from Nix himself saying it was only a partial review copy before the […]

SUMMARY Cat, a circus performer, is identified as a powerful magoi and kidnapped by a warlord named Griffin and his band of ultra-sexy warriors, intending to use […]

The Hypnotic City by Andrea Berthot

The Hypnotic City by Andrea Berthot

Disclaimer: Andrea and I are Goodreads friends. This is because I read a review copy of The Heartless City, fell in love with it, and decided Andrea should be my new BFF, so I friend requested her (also to keep tabs on when her new books are coming out). My online ‘friendship’ with the author […]

A Little Frayed In Execution, But Otherwise A Solid Hit

A Little Frayed In Execution, But Otherwise A Solid Hit

I’ve never before been so conflicted to review a book I received for review. While the premise and plot were promising, the execution was not on fleek and the book needs a very thorough line edit and copy edit before it will be ready for publication. I am reading an ARC, so my criticisms should […]
