Magic Comes At A Price – A Wicked Magic Review

A Wicked Magic is one of those books that I enjoyed whilst I was reading it, but when I was done – I kept thinking about it for other reasons. It crawled under my skin and wiggled in moments I was alone. First of all, I’ve noticed that there seems to be a new trend…

A New Magician Has Entered the Arena – Where Dreams Descend Review

God I wanted Where Dreams Descend to be everything. I really, really did. It seemed so perfect on paper; magic, sexy dark undertones, danger, a lost city, a competition and dark forces. But unfortunately what I got seemed much more like a draft than a finished book. Please don’t get me wrong: I see potential…

One of the Most Important Books of 2020 – Parachutes Review

I have a lot of complex feelings about this book, and that’s because a lot of complex emotions and situations are present. This book references the #MeToo movement and whilst I wasn’t initially keen on that, because some books I’ve read have been – quite frankly, dangerous and hateful and portray all men as bastards…

An Underwater Adventure! – The Vanishing Deep Review

Remember Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte? Well, I gave that 5 stars. And it’s exactly the same situation for Scholte’s latest release The Vanishing Deep. But where Four Dead Queens was FAR from perfect, but got 5 stars for the enjoyability factor, The Vanishing Deep earned 5 stars the good old fashioned way. It…

As with all ghost stories with this sort of story, she…

The Sound of Five Stars – The Sound of Stars Review

I feel so lucky and grateful to have been sent an early copy of The Sound of Stars. I had seen it in a Ink Yard Press’s stories and I had re-storied it to mine, tagging the author and Ink Yard Press stating how excited I was for this title. And Alechia Dow – the…
