Book Review : Illuminations

Book Review : Illuminations

Whenever I need a bit of a feel-good pick me-up story, I reach for a T. Kingfisher work—even if it’s horror. I just love the originality and eccentricity of her stories and Illuminations is no exception to this rule. 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 : Ashes of the Sun

Book Review : Ashes of the Sun

Ashes of the Sun is the first book I’ve read by Django Wexler, though admittedly I own another of his novels and just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet–famous last words.

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 […]
