Book Review – Secondborn

I absolutely loved Amy A Bartol’s Kricket series, so when I learned she had a new series out, I didn’t hesitate in snapping up the audiobook. And I wasn’t at all disappointed. It took me a couple of months to get through it—not because I found it boring, but because it was so addictive that… Continue reading Book Review – Secondborn

Book Review: Right Text, Wrong Number

Okay, first of all I need to apologise for the ridiculously long absence since my last post--it's been pretty crazy 'round here with my deadline for book two of the Shadowlands series fast approaching. I haven't really had a chance to read all that much, let alone write reviews!    I don’t read a whole heap of… Continue reading Book Review: Right Text, Wrong Number

Book Review – The Diplomat’s Daughter

As the banner above states, I am a history geek—a really, really, big history geek. And while I hesitate to say World War II is my ‘favourite’ historical period (that just seems far too cheerful a word for a time shrouded in so many horrors), it is probably the historical period I find the most… Continue reading Book Review – The Diplomat’s Daughter

Book Review – Spectacle (Menagerie #2)

Finally I am posting my review of Spectacle by Rachel Vincent! It’s been well over a year since I read the opener of Rachel Vincent’s Menagerie series, but it took me no time at all to become completely re-immersed in this fascinating world she has created. Set in an alternate present, the Menagerie series is a contemporary… Continue reading Book Review – Spectacle (Menagerie #2)

Book Review – Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist #1)

Today was supposed to be a review of Spectacle by Rachel Vincent, but then something happened… Last night, I decided I was going to have an early night. I was going to read for a couple of hours and then have lights off by no later than 10pm… I ended up finally going to sleep… Continue reading Book Review – Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist #1)

Book Review – Shadowcaster (Shattered Realms #2)

Shadowcaster is the second book in Cinda Williams Chima’s Shattered Realms series, which is a legacy series of one of my favourites, Seven Realms.  It took me a while to get to this book (it came out in April) because, while I did end up enjoying the first instalment, Flamecaster, I found it falling short… Continue reading Book Review – Shadowcaster (Shattered Realms #2)

Book Review – Iniquitous (The Marked #3)

There are really only two words for this book: Dominic...sigh.  This is the third instalment of Bianca Scardoni’s YA vampire series The Marked and it was my favourite by a long way. The book opens pretty much where the second book, Invidious, left off, but I won’t go into too much detail so as not… Continue reading Book Review – Iniquitous (The Marked #3)
