Book Review : The Silverblood Promise

Book Review : The Silverblood Promise

The Silverblood Promise is a fast-paced, rip-roaring fantasy debut that had me hooked from the very first page. The novel is also filled to the brim with loveable characters, interesting character dynamics, and excellent banter. And if that weren’t enough to get readers interested, The Silverblood Promise also involves hair-brained schemes, heists, murder mysteries, and secrets of an extinct ancient race (or two).   The novel follows Lukan Gardova, a […]

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.

Book Review : In the Shadow of Lightning

Book Review : In the Shadow of Lightning

In the Shadow of Lightning is the first work I’ve read by Brian McCellan. I picked up this book after reading the blurb from Brandon Sanderson, who recommended it to anyone looking for a “new favorite fantasy series.” Unfortunately, In the Shadow of Lighting was not my new favorite series by any stretch. Though the novel had really interesting premises, like glass known as “godglass” that grants the bearer special […]
