Review: The Tombs of Atuan [Earthsea Cycle #2] 4/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / May 24, 2019

Review: As I expected, I dipped my toes in the pool of fantasy and now there is no power on earth to get me out of the water 😀 I’ve missed the intricate world-building and the wizards and powerful darkness lurking in the shadows.

The Tombs of Atuan is the second book of Earthsea cycle by Ursula K. Le Guin and my favorite so far. It has the same melodic prose that was present in the first one, it has the taste of magic and secrets and it has new characters and a fresh story.

Review: The Last Wish [The Witcher #0.1] 3/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 23, 2019

Review: I had The Witcher series by Andrzey Sapkowski on my reading list for years but somehow I never got around to reading it. After finishing the Kate Daniels series I needed something new and different so here we are, jumping into another world of magic, mythical creatures and a man that desperately tries to escape what he is.

Review: Magic Burns [Kate Daniels #2] 4/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / March 27, 2018

Review: I can’t say I am surprised that I finished the second book about Kate Daniels in a single week. Ilona Andrew‘s series is one heck of a page-turner and it simply doesn’t let you sit around, ignoring it. Magic Burns is the second book and what any one of you would need to get hooked up on the series (if the first book didn’t seal the deal already).

In the center of the story is our beloved, foul-mouthed, quick-thinking Kate Daniels, a merc with a dark secret and soft spots for orphans. In this installment Kate has her hands full – she is hired by the Pack to retrieve stolen maps (three times!), Red (a street kid who helped her with Derek in the previous book) decides to collect on the favor she owes him and asks her to look after Julie (his thirteen-year-old girlfriend); on top of all the world is about to experience a flare – an occurrence that happens every sever years where the magic energy grows exponentially and becomes highly unstable – causing unexpected problems all around.
