Book Review : These Burning Stars

Book Review : These Burning Stars

Ever since reading The Blighted Stars and its recent follow-up, The Fractured Dark, I have been determined to break out of my predilection for the fantasy genre and to try to read more science fiction. When I read the blurb for These Burning Stars, a science fiction novel centering on three very different women out for revenge, I knew I had found my next science fiction read. And boy, am […]

Book Review : The Fractured Dark

Book Review : The Fractured Dark

  Ever since I read The Blighted Stars—one of, if not my favorite science fiction novel ever—its sequel has been on my “to read as soon as humanly possible” list.  So as you probably guessed, I was incredibly hyped to read The Fractured Dark.

Book Review : Emperor of Ruin

Book Review : Emperor of Ruin

  Emperor of Ruin is the fast-paced and gripping conclusion of the Burningblade and Silvereye trilogy. I was so happy to return to this unique fantasy world, which somehow always manages to feel like the consummate blend of both science fiction and fantasy, and is perfect for fans of Star Wars and Arcane. The two previous entries of the trilogy saw Maya and Gyre—powerful siblings separated at a young age and […]
