Book Review : Gods of the Wyrdwood

Book Review : Gods of the Wyrdwood

Gods of the Wyrdwood is an interesting and rather dark fantasy novel. I was immediately intrigued by the concept of the novel, which involved competing gods and a malevolent forest, and I was not disappointed. The novel has solid world-building, complex characters, and an amazing twist ending.    Admittedly, when I first dug into Gods of the Wyrdwood, it took me a little while to get used to the writing […]

Book Review : Snowspelled

Book Review : Snowspelled

After reading and loving Scales and Sensibility, I immediately picked up Snowspelled by the same author–and I was not disappointed. Snowspelled features a loveable and determined heroine, a charming love interest, unique world building, and lots of magic.    As soon as the novel began, I loved its feisty heroine, Cassandra.

When I heard that the author of the resplendent and charming The House in the Cerulean Sea had written another novel, I didn’t skip a beat requesting it on NetGalley. And Under the Whispering Door is certainly a worthy follow up to the novel that surprised me with its beautiful story. Even if doesn’t quite reach the perfection of the previous novel, Under the Whispering Door has the same unique […]

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 […]
