Angel Mage by Garth Nix

Garth Nix is the Australian master of worldbuilding. I’m not even joking. Y’all should know that I don’t deliberately seek out male authors (because male authors tend to write books for men about men to the detriment of women) but Nix is one of my exceptions, and I’m happy to share that Angel Mage is […]

Steadfast (Spellcaster #2) by Claudia Gray

I’ve been really sick – as in bedbound sick – and I don’t really feel like writing a lengthy review for this audiobook, so I’ll keep it brief: For a sequel, it didn’t feel like filler. I felt like every character moved forward, and the plot was original and engaging. I loved watching the relationships […]

The First Midnight Spell by Claudia Gray

This is a companion novella from the Spellcaster series told from Elizabeth’s point of view. It’s not essential reading to understand the rest of the series, but my library had a copy, and I really like reading ‘downfall’ or ‘villain’s comeuppance’ type novels. I like reading about terrible people and the terrible things that happen […]

The Hundredth Queen by Emily R King

The Antidote by Shelley Sackier

You know what? This is bullshit. I don’t owe anyone anything. I’ve just struggled through a different book that I could tell from the opening pages wasn’t up to the standards I require in my fiction. I wasted six weeks on that book. I finished it. I was not impressed. This time, instead of forcing […]

Beasts Made of Night

The concept for this book is totally awesome. A Nigerian-inspired fantasy about young gifted people (‘aki’) who literally fight and Eat the sin summoned from others, absolving them and taking on the guilt themselves. That’s a show-stopping, rousing elevator pitch if ever I heard one. Unfortunately, the concept is all this book has going for […]
