  • Smitten: Part I-Zerrin on Sep. 11, 2012

    "Smitten" is a mermaid tale unlike almost any you've read before. While it took quite some time to get us to the meat and climax of the story, it was refreshing to delve into such character depth. Lana's life as a foster kid is believable and gut wrenching at times, particularly her role looking over the younger children. Both the human world and the sea are painted in clear tones. And Jonas is one of the most compelling new characters I've read in some time. Liked this one so much I went ahead and bought "Zerrin," the full story.
  • Nordic Fairies (Novella series) on Sep. 11, 2012

    Before buying this I got in the mood to read something light but modern, your classic subscription for a YA novel. I'd picked up Saga Berg's novella, "Nordic Fairies" a week or so ago and had been meaning to read it. First of all I was shocked it was a novella. I think I was expecting something more involved or longer. Obviously someone didn't read the full description carefully enough upon purchasing...ahem... Well it may have only been a short novella but it was certainly more than involved! Svala, the main light fairy, is one of the most interesting heroines I've read lately. Hers and Viggo's story is so tragic and addictive I sincerely hope there are at least a dozen of these short stories. Viggo is frigging gorgeous of course. Even though this is technically YA it feels much more adult. I love the concept the author has introduced here and don't know if she based it more heavily on the Nordic tales or invented it. Either way Saga Berg is now one of my new favs! Makes me wish I was Swedish!
  • The Athena Effect on Oct. 14, 2012

    “Athena” effects more than the usual YA/NA novel elicits. Not only does it have the usual helping of Anderson’s signature intrigue, romance and sense of wonder. But it dares to delve deeper into the morally ambiguous and the depths of human emotion. It also manages to do this while being a blast to read. A stellar improvement from Anderson that shines even brighter than her “Marina Tales,” I recommend this book to anyone looking for something meatier and grittier than they have dared to go before.
  • The Frey Saga Book III: Rise of the Seven on Oct. 14, 2012

    At last, Wright’s much anticipated final installment in her Frey trilogy has arrived with a bang. RoTS shines in plentiful, often garish colors, pairing the grit with the gumption of a fully matured kick-butt heroine. One of the things I admired most while reading this was the added depth of Freya’s character. With a return of her memories at last, the character is given several new dimensions that all flow seamlessly together. The pages turn like a well-oiled machine, now that we have come to know the company so well, allowing for even more action. The addition of fey to this world was a delightful surprise and only added to the broad spectrum of the world Wright has created. Magic abounds with intrigue and at the heart of the novel is Chevelle’s unwavering love for Freya and their long history together. And in the end, all loose ends are tied and wrapped in a rocking package that you’ll want to pull apart and read over and again.
  • Alpha Girl (Wolfling #1) on March 30, 2013

    I devoured Alpha Girl within a few hours after starting it. In the same vein as "Blood and Chocolate," Alpha Girl delivers hot and heavy tension, along with some difficult adult situations that a teenager shouldn't have to be faced with. But, of course, Rose isn't your typical teenage girl. She's a werewolf, and I quickly became wrapped up in her story. She's an understated herione, and in fact, she's kind of the bad gal in monster-verse. Part of Bloomfield's brilliance was in writing this in a way that allows us to see just how different being a werewolf is. And the romance, whew, sign me up for a Mr. Stone. He's stone-cold-foxy older man, is what he is. And I just loved how wild he was about Rose. But don't take my word for it, read Alpha Girl for yourself. You won't be disappointed. A refreshing, breathless and lusty tale, not for the feint of heart.
  • The Frey Saga Book IV: Venom and Steel on July 01, 2017

    "I was just a broken girl now, like my mother, and hers before. This was how it started. Emptiness and despair. Everyone knew how it ended." From the beginning, Venom and Steel throws you back into a theater of elves verses fey, dark against light, & the humans caught in an age-old war. Picking up some time after "Rise of the Seven," we are quickly re-acquainted with the company of characters we fell in love with before. Only this time, the fey are the central threat, with changelings taking advantage of the chaos an old conflict brings about. Stakes are higher than ever and the battle of wits & magic is spectacular. While Ruby shines brightest in this latest installment, Frey finds herself powerless to stop events from unfolding. Veil, the leader of the fey court strikes a bargain with Frey that leaves the kingdoms reeling. As the company is split apart by outside forces, they must learn to overcome insurmountable odds. Old enemies must become new allies as dark and light join forces, and a new threat looms in the horizon that threatens to destroy them all.
  • The Monster Of Selkirk Book 1: The Duality of Nature on Nov. 15, 2017

    The Monster of Selkirk by C.E. Clayton really surprised me. I'm not sure what I was expecting from the premise, besides wicked elves and what sounded like a historical Scottish setting. What I found was a kick butt heroine who not only knows how to fight (thanks to her Knighted cousin), but a cast of colorful characters in a very grounded fantastical world. Selkirk is actually an island, largely forested, where the humans have kept elves at bay for hundreds of years. Ever since the elves went feral and lost their ability to speak intelligibly, humans have treated them like animals. They even host frequent clearings, destroying the elves homes and killing without mercy. So is it any wonder the elves might decide to fight back? Our main heroine, Tallis is somewhat unconventional from a small age. Her eyes are a little too big, her hair a little wild, but everyone seems willing to accept her as their own. Her village is poor but this doesn't stop Tallis from soaking in as much she can through books in the nearby abbey, learning how to fight from her cousin Donovan, and causing mischief whenever she gets the chance. From the beginning we can already see hints of what Tallis may become, but this doesn't detract in any way from each reveal. It's been a while since I've read a story that takes the time to give you backstory like this. As we grow up with Tallis, we are drawn deeper and deeper into Clayton's imagination until we feel every injustice she witnesses just as keenly. Besides Donovan, Tallis draws a makeshift family of her own through her pick-pocket friend Rosslyn and monk-in-training/inventor, Tomas. Everything is set up for a hero's journey and we know we will see these characters see Tallis through to the inevitable end. I can't say more without giving away spoilers for the book, but suffice to say, this was a privilege to read. Not only am I anxious to read the sequel, but I would highly recommend this series for fans of Shannara Chronicles and The Wheel of Time Series.
