Divine Rivals (Letters of Enchantment #1) By Rebecca Ross

I had seen this book around and dismissed it, not because I didn’t like the author, because I do (I quite enjoyed her debut novel The Queen’s Rising), but because I have zero interest in stories set in World War I and II. It wasn’t until the book won the  Goodreads Choice Award Winner for […]

Vengeance of the Pirate Queen (Daughter of the Pirate King #3) by Tricia Levenseller

I really enjoyed this tale, a revisit to Levenseller’s popular Pirate Queen series starring said queen’s misanthropic pirate assassin Sorinda accidentally unleashing a threat to the world while on a rescue mission. Sorinda’s characterisation was top tier. She was deadly without being one of those stuck up entitled fake assassins we see so often in […]

Threats of Sky and Sea by Jennifer Ellision

I was initially drawn to this book because it was about forbidden elemental-based magic. By all accounts, Bree was a normal child brought up by her father, having been told that her mother died in childbirth, and she was kept ignorant of her father’s complicated past. Bree and her father ran a pub or a […]

Assistant to the Villain by Hannah Nicole Maehrer

So this was a hyped book. Allegedly. OK truth be told, I didn’t see ANY hype for this book outside of the Australian publishers doing an ARC call out (thank you SO MUCH to Penguin Random House Australia for sending me a copy of the book for review!) and of course, the adorable author’s own […]

Fourth Wing (The Empyrean #1) by Rebecca Yarros

I’m not being funny when I say this is written for the ADHD generation. There is no inciting incident. I’m not a huge stickler for ‘writing rules’ (except grammar, and don’t confuse your homophones) because books do successfully break them, and books these days are coming out more and more without inciting incidents. And why, […]

Silver in the Mist by Emily Victoria

Despite it taking me literally forever to read this book, I did really enjoy it. This book was published in November 2022 and I am finally reviewing it in April 2023 after taking far too long to finish it. I have no excuse. Despite enjoying it, it didn’t grip me and prevent me from putting […]

Lightlark by Alex Aster

I didn’t really feel like Lightlark was a YA courtesy of the suggestive content which had more in common with indie smut than trad YA fantasy: as it happens, those two genres happen to be my favourite and I read a fair bit in both. I didn’t go into it expecting it to be YA, […]

The Blood Traitor (The Prison Healer #3) by Lynette Noni

Oh gosh, I don’t even know what to say. I loved everything about this book. I loved that Kiva was training her power. I loved the developing relationships with both old and new characters. I loved the plot twists, even if Noni has now trained me to expect at least two and I could guess […]
