When you have a great and funny author and great narrator you get a fantastic result.
This what you get when Darynda Jones and Lorelei King give you a book to enjoy. Darynda is a great author in my opinion for many many reasons, especially her imagination and her sense of humor... i laugh so many times with every book she makes and thats one of the main things that makes her book great. and when you bring Lorelei to read these books, you can feel how she really brings these characters to life which is amazing!!!
Now the book and this series, when i started reading this series i was not that confident that it was going to be a good one, but then i thought i;ll take a chance and have a listen.. and damn i finished the first book in the first day i got it.... But this book is really good, you have everything established and you keep on thinking whats going on and what will happen... and you laugh through the whole book ... What more do you want other than that!!!!
Another good book with a good plot and enjoyable characters, can't wait to see Darynda Jones's next books.. she really has her special way to brighten your day.
If you didn't check Darynda Jones's other series... Then YOU HAVE TO, go check "Charley Davidson" series. Its damn great!!!!
Brandon Sanderson is truly one of the greatest authors.. So far every single book he released was amazing and The Rithmatist is a good example.
When I read the summary of this book before, i'll be honest I didn't understand what was the book about, but I bought the book anyway just because of the author, and I don't regret it at all.
I am going to be basic here, The Rithmatists are people who can defend and attack by drawing things and bringing them to life. (This is to clear what is going on exactly)
One of the things that I liked about this book was the world itself, this book's world is our world with some changes, but still this world, and actually liked that (didn't have to understand and remember different countries and so on)
Another good thing is that the plot. It doesn't go as you would have expected, there are few things that go the other way, which is always appreciated.
Brandon Sanderson gave us another great book, gave a fantastic ending which could lead to so many possibilities in the future... I'm sure there will be future books after this one.
If you are wondering wether to buy this book or not, then i would say go and BUY IT NOW!!!! If you liked Brandon Sanderson's books before, you will like this one too. and if you never heard of Brandon Sanderson, then just buy it anyway, you will love his work.
I got this book because of the author, and honestly i thought it was going to be some teenagers book. But I was amazed how good it was, the plot was a bit different than other books, and there are interesting pointers here and there.
In this book you have all the Gods divided into 2 sides the good and the evil ones. and there are those champions and followers of each god. in this school is for teaching and preparing those kids to follow on the footsteps and the path of their own God.
This is the first book, so basically a lot of character introductions and explanations of what happened in the past and what might happen in the future
So these are the basics, if you like this kind of books that has a countless number of Gods, you will like this one.

This is the first book in the Hex Hall trilogy. It was a cute YA paranormal read. There isn’t a lot special here but the book was generally well written and well done. I especially enjoyed Sophie’s quirky sense of humor.
I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was very well done. Sophie sounds exactly like I would imagine her to. The narrator did an excellent job of distinguishing between character voices.
Sophie Mercer is a witch and when a love spell she does for a friend goes horribly wrong, her dad decides her punishment will be to transfer her to Hex Hall. Hex Hall is a school of magical deliquents, those students of non-human nature who just can’t seem to control their powers. While there Sophie gets involved in a mystery where other Dark Witches are being attacked. If Sophie can’t figure out what’s going on, and quickly, then she might be the next witch attacked.
This is a cute young adult read about a school full of witches, faeries, vampires and werewolves. It was a fun quick read and the characters were engaging. There was a good mystery to be solved, although it was pretty predictable.
Sophie kind of makes the story. She has an absolutely quirky and cutting sense of humor that gets her into trouble a lot. Her roommate, a vampire addicted to hot pink, adds even more fun to the mix.
This is a pretty typical YA paranormal read. Sophie has to deal with the “mean girl” group, the only twist being that these mean girls want her to join their coven. Sophie also ends up falling for the hottest guy in school, the totally untouchable Archer Cross. Sophie and Archer had pretty good chemistry together and it was cute to watch them get to know each other.
The vamps, weres, and witches are pretty typical...there’s nothing all that special about them in this world. The world-building in general isn’t all that great. This book is driven more by the mystery behind all of the witches being attacked. Much of the book is also dedicated to Sophie getting settled in her new school and learning more about being a witch.
Overall a fun and quick paranormal YA read. While there wasn’t a ton that was super creative here, it was still and cute and fun read. This is just a light book to read quickly. The characters are engaging and well done and there is a good mystery here to be solved. I will probably check out the second book in the series, mainly because Sophie is just so much fun and so quirky. Recommended to fans of YA paranormal books.
