Book Review : Thornhedge

Book Review : Thornhedge

Ever since reading What Moves the Dead, I’ve become a huge fan of T. Kingfisher’s books, snapping them up left and right. I love how the author manages to effortlessly pivot from sweet and quirky fairytale retellings to dark and twisted horror stories. In Thornhedge, Kingfisher manages to merge both of these genres with aplomb, creating a simultaneously sweet, but dark and violent retelling of the classic tale Sleeping Beauty. […]

Book Review : The Bone Shard War

Book Review : The Bone Shard War

  I have never been more satisfied by the ending of a series—let alone one I loved as much as The Drowning Empire—until The Bone Shard War. The Bone Shard War brings the trilogy to a resoundingly flawless finish, where all of the characters’ arcs culminate in immensely satisfying and touching conclusions.    Though The Bone Shard War takes place two years after the events of the prior entry in […]

I enjoyed this fun fantasy novel, with its relatively consistent fast-pacing, unique concepts, such as Gods living among their worshippers, and entertaining twists. I even read it within three […]

Book Review : A House with Good Bones

Book Review : A House with Good Bones

After reading What Moves the Dead, Nettle & Bone, and The Twisted Ones I’ve become something of a T. Kingfisher enthusiast, so I had to read her latest novella, A House with Good Bones. I love the author’s effortless writing style, which is somehow always a blend of conversational and fun, as well as eerie and suspenseful. A House with Good Bones is no exception to this rule, but this […]
