My Thoughts: Heads up for new readers considering this series, there are going to be 12 books and each one so far ends on a cliffhanger. That being said, I am loving this series right now, the more I read the more I want to know.
The Unfinished Song Series is set in a very primitive almost neolithic time. There is a lot of violence and women especially, are sometimes treated badly. There are tribal clans with bizarre rules and complicated politics. The fae/fairies/fairy lords etc come in all sorts of sizes and forms and they are mischevious, beautiful and powerful. There is a lot of terminology, including character names, clan names, levels of fae, magic, etc. Tara Maya has thought out every detail extensively and as a result has created a believable fantasy world like no other.Continue reading
I’ve been a bit quiet again lately as I’ve been having a revamp of my blog (trying to make it look awesome so check it out and let me know your thoughts!) This is just a hello (hello), to let you all know that I’m still blogging. I am behind on my book reviews due to work but I will be posting up book reviews for the following wonderful books soon…
She Never Got To Say Goodbye is a great paranormal fantasy and thriller with a lovely and satisfying ending. I enjoyed reading this book and it has been a delightful change from what I’ve been currently reading. The story is fast-paced and takes elements from a number of different genres, romance, mystery, action, paranormal and thriller. I think even the pickiest readers will have trouble finding nothing to appreciate here. Overall the story is well written, I noticed a couple of errors but nothing that detracts away from the story. Ica Iova has a beautiful and addictive writing style that will keep you turning the pages.
She Never Got To Say Goodbye is centred around two main characters, Olivia and Brandon. The story describes how they meet, fall in love, and how their relationship ultimately falls apart. The story then moves on to Olivia’s life as a ghost, Brandon’s life as a single parent, and the last part of the story introduces the life of the killer…Continue reading
I found this delightful little gem in my local bookstore, sadly I couldn’t stay in said bookstore all day and neither did I buy as many books as I would have liked to however, The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo caught my eye and I’m so glad that it did! It didn’t take long for me to be completely absorbed by this story, I ABSOLUTELY ADORE Hayao Miyazaki’s work and as soon as I picked up on the Spirited Away-esque vibe seeping from the pages of this novel, I was hooked! I would literally beg Hayao Miyazaki to make The Ghost Bride into one of his spectacular animations, Myself and I could name a few others, would definitely buy and watch it.
Oh my god this book almost broke my heart! I could not believe what happened to the main character Adrian, so so so much injustice and I can’t tell you much more than that otherwise it will spoil the story!
Just like Wild-Born and The Tower, Lesser Gods is written from the POV of Adrian Howell, a young teenage boy with incredible telekinetic powers. This third book in this series follows Adrian and his new family and friends, as they fend off their enemies, whilst living with the Guardian faction in a place called New Haven. If you want more details you will just have to read my other blogs, here for Wild-Born and here for The Tower. However just to cover some basics, there is a war going on between various different groups. The Angels are another psionic faction, The God-Slayers are religious extremists, and The Wolves are a military group. The Angels are like the Guardians, only the Angels believe they should be the rulers of the world and mankind, the Guardians oppose this.
My Thoughts: I just have to say, I’m a total sucker for fictional, mysterious, bad-boys, (and I mean the bad-boys that are a little shy, awkward, hide their emotions, but are totally strong, skilled and confident in their abilities, yet still loving and protective. NOT the arrogant, aggressive, controlling, cold and heartless bad-boys who pretend to be in love just so they can get into someones pants -C.L.) Ok, so that being said, Susanne hit my total weakness the moment she introduced the character Coal! As soon as he came into the story I knew exactly what type of character he was going to be and I was practically smiling with glee.
Chained is a fast-paced and well written dystopian fantasy, and the underlying themes in this story echo some of the problems we face in the real world today (like the fact that the rich are corrupt and the poor never really stand a chance -C.L.) I liked this, the cynical side to me jumped for joy, it’s clever.
