Book Reviews : Winterlight

Book Reviews : Winterlight

Winterlight is the latest and penultimate entry in the Green Rider series. After really enjoying my reread of Firebrand, which I thought showed a substantial improvement in writing, I felt that Winterlight, though enjoyable to the point that I stayed up until 4am reading my ARC, was a step backwards. Winterlight doesn’t feel as well thought out to me as earlier books in the series, and again falls victim to […]

I found that though this novel […]

Reread Review : Blackveil

Reread Review : Blackveil

Blackveil is the follow up to The High King’s Tomb, and though I found it more enjoyable than its predecessor, it was still plagued with a lot of the same problems—“telling” instead of “showing,” bad pacing, and strangely dark events for a young adult fantasy. But what is most awful in Blackveil is the truly horrendous romances that have completely surpassed my suspension of disbelief. Despite all of this, I […]
