Book Review: The Priory of the Orange Tree

Book Review: The Priory of the Orange Tree

The Priory of the Orange Tree is an absolutely phenomenal read. It has everything a reader could want—powerful and diverse female characters, the best LGBTQ romance I have read, EVER, great friendships, interesting religion, pirates, alchemists, world-building, secret organizations, and DRAGONS (both good and evil). Many books nowadays claim to be “the new A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones),” but I have never had the pleasure of […]

Book Review : Part-Time Gods

Book Review : Part-Time Gods

It pains me to say this, but I think Part-Time Gods is one of my least favorite novels written by Rachel Aaron. Don’t get me wrong, Part-Time Gods had plenty of great stuff, the characterization of the god of the Detroit-Free Zone, a swoon-worthy main love interest, interesting magical systems, and returns of familiar favorite characters from Nice Dragons Finish Last. So why did I dislike Part-Time Gods so much? […]

Thankfully, however, that was not the case with Serpent & Dove at all. I was surprised to find a strong-willed heroine who was witty, resourceful, and […]

Book Review : A Promise of Fire

Book Review : A Promise of Fire

I was pleasantly surprised by A Promise of Fire. There’s a lot to like in this romance fantasy novel–a strong heroine named Cat with powerful and unique magical abilities, Greek Gods, interesting world-building, and a mostly likable romance. I found A Promise of Fire to be one of the best fantasy romance novels I have read yet, despite its somewhat lacking character development and unbelievable magic at times and predictability […]

Book Review : Daughter of the Forest

Book Review : Daughter of the Forest

There are no words for just how much I enjoyed Daughter of the Forest, a truly enchanting and unique novel. I was immediately ensnared from the very first page of Daughter of the Forest, which follows a young girl named Sorcha, who grows up in a magical, wild forest with her six older brothers. With a father completely focused on war and bereft of his wife, who died bearing his […]
