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 […]

The Heat Is On In ‘A Promise Of Fire’ by Amanda Bouchet

The Heat Is On In ‘A Promise Of Fire’ by Amanda Bouchet

For some reason I believed this was a YA book. It’s not. It’s very adult fantasy. But I’m reviewing it anyway because I was granted a review copy. 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 […]

Ruined by Amy Tintera has ruined me for other YA fantasy

Ruined by Amy Tintera has ruined me for other YA fantasy

First of all, yes, this is one of those ‘pseudo-fantasy-lite’ novels where the kickass assassin/princess gets to wear pretty dresses and falls in love with the prince BUT Do not dismiss it because it’s more Twilight/Disney Princess (written for girls where girls star as the hero I might add) than Lord of the Rings, or […]

DNF: Tell The Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

DNF: Tell The Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

I’m not usually one to say a character is ever outright stupid, but Lucie must be the stupidest of any heroine I’ve ever read, and that includes Bella ‘my life revolves around a vampire who wants to kill me’ Swan and Nora ‘sexual assault is sexy’ Grey. There’s heat of the moment act-first-think-later bad decisions, […]

Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie

Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie

I have a superpower. Not a very good one, and it’s one I don’t really tell people for fear they simply won’t believe me. I’m an emotional chameleon. I literally feel the emotions of people around me. Like an empath. It was not that long ago that I confessed this useless and uncontrollable superpower to my […]
