This is the first book in a series of an unknown number of books and it’s followed by ‘The Water Witch’. Carol Goodman, who writes as Juliet Dark, has also written a lot of other books on various different themes. Please also be aware that this book has been published under two different names ‘The [...]
The best way to describe this book, ‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern, is a combination of a few different tales. To be honest, the actual circus is merely one element. Firstly, we have a magical competition that originates between two older illusionists which they then bind their young protégés into using magical rings. These [...]
This is the very exciting first book in a new young adult series by Gail Carriger. Currently, there are a further two books in the series to be published later in 2013 and 2014 called ‘Curtsies & Conspiracies’ and ‘Waistcoats & Weaponry’. Together they will form the new ‘Finishing School’ series to run in the [...]
This is book two in ‘The Parasol Protectorate’, following on from ‘Soulless’. In all there are five books in the series, this is something I have to say I like, an author who knows when to finish a series of books. This is a series that needs to be read in order or you won’t [...]
Beautiful Redemption (Caster Chronicles series book 4) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (book review).
‘Beautiful Redemption is the last book in the four book ‘Caster Chronicles’ series preceded by ‘Beautiful Creatures’, ‘Beautiful Darkness’ and ‘Beautiful Chaos’. I love the fact that this is the last book, not because it will all be finished but because I know that the story won’t be extended further and further. Although a few [...]
‘Beautiful Chaos’ is book three in the ‘Caster Chronicles’ preceded by ‘Beautiful Creatures’ and ‘Beautiful Darkness’ and followed by the fourth and last book, ‘Beautiful Redemption’. I would suggest that these books are read in order as they would make little sense if read as standalone novels. I would also suggest that you have copies [...]
Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles series book 2) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (book review).
‘Beautiful Darkness’ is book two in the ‘Caster Chronicles’ series preceded by ‘Beautiful Creatures’ and followed by ‘Beautiful Chaos’ and ‘Beautiful Redemption’. I must warn you now that there may be some unintentional spoilers in this review as I am writing about the second book in this series, I apologise but sometimes it’s impossible not [...]
This is book one in the ‘Caster Chronicles’ a series of four books continuing in ‘Beautiful Darkness’, ‘Beautiful Chaos’ and ‘Beautiful Redemption’. This book starts out in a very similar vein to other teen urban fantasy novels, except this time we’re listening in on some male angst rather than the traditional female protagonist. There are [...]
‘Between Two Thorns’ is the first in the new ‘Split Worlds’ series of books, this also includes a set of short stories (see more information at the bottom of this review). Currently, there appear to be two more novels in this series ‘Any Other Name’, and ‘All Is Fair’, but there’s no mention of it [...]
Days Of Blood And Starlight (Daughter Of Smoke And Bone Trilogy book 2) by Laini Taylor (book review).
‘Days Of Blood and Starlight’ is book two of the ‘Daughter Of Smoke And Bone Trilogy’. Laini Taylor has also written a series of books called the ‘Dreamdark’ series, along with multiple other stand-alone novels. This book continues the story a little while after the first book, ‘Daughter Of Smoke And Bone’, so there are [...]
