Book Review : Godkiller

Book Review : Godkiller

I finally got around to reading Godkiller and boy, am I glad that I did, as it’s become one of my favorite novels of the year, if not of all time. From the very first page of this debut fantasy novel, I was absolutely captivated by the world-building and the characters. Godkiller takes place in a bit of a post-apocalyptic world, if one considers a massive war between humans and […]

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).

As a dragon lover, I was immediately able to relate […]

Book Review : The Eye of the World

Ever since I’ve gotten into reading fantasy novels, I’ve seen Robert Jordan’s  The Wheel of Time series plastered all over the shelves of Sci-Fi/Fantasy sections. I decided this year would be the year that I finally saw what all the fuss was about. I was immediately hooked by The Eye of the World, which follows three young men and their extraordinary female friends on their escape from their hometown with […]

Book Review : The Alchemists of Loom

Book Review : The Alchemists of Loom

I adored The Alchemists of Loom so much that I read it twice within a month. I love the original ideas, the world-building, the characters, the slow-burn romance–everything. I simply cannot rave about this steampunk fantasy novel enough and I am itching to pick up the next novel in the trilogy. In the Alchemists of Loom, there are two races–the Fenthri and the Dragons. The Fenthri dwell below the realms […]
