Review: Tower Lord [Raven’s Shadow #2] 4/5 (1)
Adventure , All , Fantasy , War / May 29, 2020

Review: It has been some time since a book made me stay up till the early hours of the night. And on top of that I’m already sleep deprived, being a new mom and all, so using my sleep time for reading this book is the biggest compliment I could give it.
The second book of the series by Anthony Ryan, Tower Lord, was everything you could hope for in a fantasy series. It had massive worldbuilding, epic battles, magic, betrayals, bad guys you love to hate (or hate to love) and a hint of romance. Oh, and some badass female characters. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love any well-developed character regardless of the gender but I rarely see a female one done right (or rather, done the way I like it).

Review: Sword of Destiny [The Witcher #0.2] 3/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 27, 2019

Review: I have finally finished Sword of Destiny, the second collection of short stories accompanying The Witcher series, and I am left with very mixed feelings. By now I realized that Andrzej Sapkowski‘s style is a bit too philosophical, too pompous at times and I have come to terms with that. Maybe it is just the translation, as I am reading it in English, but there are times when the characters talk and talk about things as if for the sake of talking, as if the author wants to show he is verse in all themes. It’s rare to find a story where you love the style, love the characters and you love the story. In most cases you get just one of those.

Review: Wizard’s First Rule [The Sword of Truth #1] 4/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / March 30, 2018

Review: So in a spring of the moment I changed my mind (again!) and decided to put aside the Wheel of Time in favor of The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. It just felt right and here I am, done with the first book – Wizard’s First Rule.

I read a few books of the series maybe a decade ago but I never finished them all so I think it is high time I did that.

I remember I was super in love with them and found them mesmerizing and amazing. The bestest, as Rachel would say (if you have read the book you’ll know who Rachel is 😀 )
