Mirror Image – Michael Scott and Melanie Ruth Rose

Full disclosure: this book was an early release copy, given by Macmillan-Tor/Forge. The book’s on sale date is August 23rd 2016. It has taken me weeks to finish this book. Why, you ask?

Queen of the Tearlings by Erika Johansen

Amthiel has most cordially invited me to share my opinion on my most recent fantasy-find. You may have guessed from the title of this post that I have had the pleasure of Queen of the Tearling. I do not remember the exact search thread that took me to Queen of the Tearling, it was probably something…

Review: Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)  by Sarah J. Maas Rating: 4 out of 5 stars Had I not been as morbidly fond of stories about assassins as I happen to be, I may have ditched this book after the first three chapters. The main character, the 18 year old Celaena Sardothien, appeared to be…

Too old for fantasy?

So, I’ve decided to embrace the fact that I’m addicted to YA fantasy, although I am sort of fed up with the…

Review: Air Awakens (Air Awakens, #1)

Air Awakens by Elise Kova My rating: 4,5 stars. Air Awakens kept popping up in my recommendations at Goodreads, and although I had initially DNF’ed my Kindle-sample, the growing hype caught my interest, and I ended up enjoying the story immensely. Our protagonist, 17-year-old Vhalla Yarl, is an apprentice at the imperial library. The story…

Review: The Griever’s Mark (The Griever’s Mark,#1)

The Griever’s Mark by Katherine Hurley My rating: 5 out of 5 stars Building a universe which is familiar enough to make sense, yet otherworldly enough to compel the imagination, is no easy task. Nonetheless, this is what Katherine Hurley has accomplished with The Griever’s Mark series. Astarti is a young woman who has grown…

Review: Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard My rating: 2 out of 5 stars Some spoilers ahead. “Truthwitch” is my first encounter with Susan Dennard’s writing. I’ve been unsure how to rate it, but have settled with 2 stars. There are some parts of the book which merit a 3-star review – and those parts ensure that I…
