Book Review : Sunbringer

Book Review : Sunbringer

Godkiller, the predecessor to Sunbringer, was a five star read for me and one of my favorite books of 2023. So I was absolutely desperate to get my hands on the follow-up, Sunbringer, especially because Godkiller ended on a cliffhanger. Thankfully, readers don’t have long to wait and find out what happened to all of the characters after Godkiller’s cliffhanger ending in the very beginning of the book through rotating […]

Book Review : The Hurricane Wars

Book Review : The Hurricane Wars

It pains me to say this, but I enjoyed The Hurricane Wars more when it was a Reylo (Rey x Kylo Ren from the Star Wars sequel trilogy) fanfiction called Landscape with a Blur of Conquerors.

Illuminations follows the youngest daughter, Rosa, of one of the most well-known and famous illuminator families. Illuminations are magically imbued drawings that serve specific purposes, like a drawing of a cat […]

Book Review : The Warm Hands of Ghosts

Book Review : The Warm Hands of Ghosts

Every now and then a book comes along that makes you feel like you’re a better person for reading it—The Warm Hands of Ghosts is undoubtedly one of those books. The Warm Hands of Ghosts details a time, World War I, which is so often lost in the shadow of what came next. Author Katherine Arden lovingly and unapologetically places that time period out in the sun and shows it […]
