Audiobook Review: Blood of the Earth by Faith Hunter

Blood of the Earth is the first in a new series by Faith Hunter. It is a spin-off from her Jane Yellowrock books, which I have not read, and so I confirmed this would be a good entry point before reading. I definitely never felt I was missing information, or was hindered by having not read Jane Yellowrock. That said,...

Backlist Burndown Review: Written in Red by Anne Bishop

Written in Red was definitely a fun read (listen) this month. When the book starts out, Meg’s history is a bit of a mystery. Since it’s in the blurb I will explain a bit. She possesses special powers to see the future in visions. These visions are brought about by cutting her skin, and the experience can be incredibly painful....

Review: Tower of Thorns by Juliet Marillier

Tower of Thorns is the second novel in Juliet Marillier’s Blackthorn and Grim series. If you missed my review, I loved Dreamer’s Pool and really can’t stress just how addictive and enjoyable I find these books to be. They have a darkness to them, but overall I find they tend to be feel-good stories. If you haven’t read Dreamer’s Pool,...

New Series or Standalones to Look For in 2016

During this season of List Making and Anticipation for the year to come, I really enjoy focusing on the books that anyone can jump into. This means brand new series and standalone novels that don’t require previous reading. As always, there are many great books to look forward to! I tried to mark if the book is a standalone or...

Review: Planetfall by Emma Newman

Planetfall is tense and addictive. It is the story of a colony of humans who fled earth in pursuit of God’s city on a faraway planet. This was supposed to be an answer for humans from earth, where things are not going so well. Since this is not simply the exploration of a new planet, but also a pilgrimage, religion...

Review: The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette de Bodard

The House of Shattered wings is a fresh and intriguing book that has a fascinating take on fallen angels in 1930s Paris. Much like a mafia or gang style set up, their are rival houses of Fallen angels. The city is trying to recover from a magical war, it is suffering and scarred but recovering. It’s dark, broken and beautiful, much...
