Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay

★★★★☆ I’ve read Guy Gavriel Kay before and didn’t really enjoy his novels, but the cover on this one was so beautiful and the blurb so interesting I decided to give him another chance and pick this one up. I am so glad I did. Children of Earth and Sky has a number of characters,…

The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

★★★★★ I hate reviewing books like this because I really really don’t want to spoil it for others, but I still want to convey how much I enjoyed it. It is also a book that while extremely well done is probably not for everyone especially if you are looking for a book full of action…

The Passage by Justin Cronin

★★★★★ i>It had never occurred to her that God would cry, but of course that was wrong. God would be crying all the time. He would cry and cry and never stop. I don’t normally like vampire books. Vampires have become integrated in a formula for an instant best seller, thanks to books like Twilight,…

Fellside by MR Carey

★★★☆☆ This is between 3 and 4 stars rounded up simply because the author’s writing is awesome, and I so much adored their other works. Fellside is a prison, where Jessica Moulson finds herself after discovering that in a heroin induced haze she lit a fire that killed her upstairs neighbour, a little boy the…

Memories of Ice by Steven Erikson

★★★★★ Memories are woven tapestries hiding hard walls-tell me my friends, what hue your favored thread, and I in turn, will tell the cast of your soul. So far this is my favorite book in the series. I struggled with a large part of Gardens of the Moon as Erikson throws readers in to the…

A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex Marshall

★★★★☆ Once every other individual responsible for this travesty has been dealt with, after every single one of them has been paid a visit, then I’ll find you, whenever you go, wherever you hide, and I will deal with you at my leisure. Twenty years ago a woman named Cobalt Zosia led her five captains…

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

★★★★☆ It’s about to get very dark you see. For some reason the title and the young narrator of this had me thinking this was a Young Adult novel. It most definitely IS NOT. Carolyn was a normal girl once, until the day she called Adoption Day, when her parents and those of children around…

Angelfall by Susan Ee

★★★★☆ This book kept popping up on my feed, as friend after friend read and enjoyed it. So when I saw it on Netgalley, I immediately requested it and was approved. While dubious at first due to my love/hate relationship with YA Urban Fantasy that has been done to death, with cliche characters and cheesy…
