Review: The third installment, The Dragon Reborn, from the series The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan, is possibly my favorite one so far. By now I am invested in the heroes and heroines, I have my favorites and the plot has entangled enough to keep me on my toes all the time. I don’t say the others were not as good or interesting but with the development of the story our involvement and interest is supposed to grow, is it not? Of course it is.
Review: Magic Binds is the 9th book of the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews and by now I am really out of nice things to say. Looking back I realize with awe how much more complicated and serious the story became without loosing its specific humor and passion. Most series fall prey to this but not this series – and thank god for that!
Kate has claimed Atlanta and she is trying her best to protect it from her father and every creature with ill intentions that crosses its borders. But her father is playing coy, building a castle just outside the limits, baiting her by entering her territory, sending spies and whatnot. But they both know that this game of cat and mouse can’t last forever.
Review: I’m done with book eight of the series and by now I love the series to death. Literally. It has been a long, long time since I loved books series with such passion and I missed it. And it is not just that I am so familiar and attached to the characters that I want to know what happens – each and every book is somehow different, it uncovers a new mystery and introduces two more. <3 In Magic Shifts we follow Kate around as she, Curran and Julie try to acclimate to their new life outside of the Pack and the Keep.
Review: I hated it. I hated everything. Said no one ever when they read Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews 😀 No, seriously, there is literally nothing to hate here. In the other books I found things I hate or things I dislike, here it was action after action, humor after fight, sweet after scary. I didn’t get the chance, I was so into the story.
The plot follows Kate after she quits/gets fired from the Order and gets mated to the Beast Lord. She has her own business now and no clients. None. Nada. Luck finally smiles at her, kind of, when a vampire gets loose from its navigator and Ghastek calls her to ask for assistance. She helps, alright, and he gets hold of the vampire’s mind only to drop it a few minutes later. Something almost impossible for a navigator of Ghastek’s caliber.
Review: Death Bringer is the sixth book of the Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy, and if you ask me (wait for it) the best book so far! You didn’t see that coming, did you? OK, maybe you probably did because I said this for every previous book but… it’s true, I swear! I can’t decide if I am just getting more immersed and invested in the world and that’s why I like it or it’s just getting better and better. Wait, I’ve decided – it does get better and you’ll see that for yourself.
Review: Skulduggery Pleasant (now carrying the name ‘The Sceptre of Ancients’) by Derek Landy was the beginning of one amazing, intelligent and extremely funny saga that I can’t wait to finish. I don’t even know why I am still prejudiced towards stories in the ‘children literature’ genre when some of my favorite books like Harry Potter and The Lie Tree started there.
If I have to be perfectly honest I would have never bought or sat to read these series if it wasn’t for my fiance.
Review: For those who don’t know, The Mist is a horror novella by the king of horror stories as they call him, Stephen King. Okay, maybe they don’t actually call him that but we have to admit that when we think of horror books the first name that comes to mind along with Lovecraft, Shelly and other personal favorites is Stephen King.
The Mist is a story about a man, David Drayton, whose life turns into a living nightmare, his worst fears coming to life when his home town, Bridgton, Maine, is drown in a bizarre, unnatural mist.
