It reminded me of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Hot, masculine warriors working against the bad guys. The description of the castle/fort and the city below were breathtaking. It didn't hook me immediately, but it grew on me. I may read the second one to see what happens.
Can you say tear-jerker?!! This book just pulled on my heartstrings over and over again. It is very well-written and full of layers, but boohoo how happy-sad and sad-sad and devastating at times. I loved all the love and friendship everyone experienced. The friendship between Grace and Promise was inspiring and beautiful, because let's face it, some of our friends ARE our soulmates!
Joss, the main character is an enraging mixture of pain and hardheadedness that makes you want to punch her and give her a hug at the same time. I loved the characters and how Edinburgh is described - almost making you feel like you've settled in cozily. It is a passionate and emotional story which I recommend to anyone who wants a beautiful, solid romance.
Wow, so many stories within one book. Everything so convoluted, but not in a negative way. Very intense. If you like excellently written nail biters then read this book!
Dystopian cultured living dead world. A humanitarian zombie protagonist. Great read. I loved how they made all these Iowa jokes and a big chunk of the story was centered in a sleepy Iowa town. Love Iowa! Anyways, there were many layers and backstories. The whole narrative was creative and inventive. I had never read a zombie book where zombies were just dead humans.
If you like post-apocalyptic fantasy with a good variety of characters you should definitely read this.
This book surprised me. It was very well-written and the female protagonist kicked butt. Male characters were not cartoonish versions of masculinity. Instead, they showed vulnerability with strength, acceptance with viciousness. I thought it was fast-paced enough that it entertained me from start to finish. I loved how the main characters bonded by talking about their love of natural or fresh food. I also liked how there was a good balance of women and men where neither was portrayed as stronger or more useful than the other one. I must read the next one, I want to know where the mystery woman comes from!
This book was suspenseful, yet fun. I love Abby's spunk and how independent she is. It was cute but nailbiting at times.
Another hit for Molly Harper! It is packed with the wit, snark, suspense ans romance that we know and love. Fascinating and a great bridge to Iris and her story (in a separate book.)
This book had a strong, but delicate female lead. It is a Historical Romance and has many elements of that. It caters to many readers. It was passionate and romantic. I enjoyed it.
EVERYTHING! The depth and breadth of the world Laini Taylor created had me awestruck from start to finish.
Every single character was rich and colorful. The story and characters melded together and formed a rich tapestry.
Never, but she is WAY up there on my list of favorite narrators.
YES! I could not wait to go back to this world.
This book may be labeled as YA, but believe me, it is not just for Young Adults. This book is a novel that happens to have a teenage main character. If you like colorful, exciting, magical and compelling narratives then read this. Loved it loved it loved it!
