In the world described in this book, there are two types of magic: spark, which is the "legal" and "good" magic, and weave, which, in essence, is weaving the strands of the fabric that makes up the world. However, it is illegal due to its "bad" nature. When two girls, Revna and Linné are brought together by the government, they find that their government is getting desperate to win a war and will cross lines it needs to do so.
I really liked the cover. Specifically, the font choice is excellent, and I really liked how the bird in the background (is that a phoenix?) has its feathers...
In this book Hesina, the princess, takes the throne and immediately begins investigating her fathers death, believing him to have been murdered. She enlists the help of a convict who is much more than he seems. Hesina also learns who can be trusted and who can't be, and those who betray her are not who you would expect
I thought the cover was gorgeous. Honestly when I picked it up I figured Hesina would be travelling outside her kingdom to seek out the truth behind her fathers death, but the entire time she stayed in the palace. But I do like the crane on the cover. I think that...
When teenager Rhett dies, he becomes a skelletor on the Harbinger, which is a ship that collects souls when people die. Suddenly, a demon appears and wants some special power that Rhett seems to have. What could it be? How will Rhett and his new friends stop her? Or can they even?
The most compelling aspect of the book with all it's different characters reacting to the situations they were put in and to each other. I loved the cover; it gave this creepy ominous vibe without telling much about the story but sort of hinting at things. Much like the book, the cover is suspenseful....
Although this book was a sequel, it draws readers in even more than its predecessor, The Cruel Prince. Characters will be faced with even more difficult decisions, alliances will be formed and broken, all while Black manages to wow the audience with an even more intriguing world than before. I really enjoyed the cover. It well reflects the tensions in this book with the main characters and the Kingdom of the Sea, and between Cardan and Jude over the crown. The most compelling aspect of this book, other than the...
Hi. My name is Hebah. I’m a giant nerd. I don’t just read genre fiction shamelessly; I also attend conventions dedicated to them. And yeah, going to a ComicCon isn’t really a big deal anymore, but I go to sci fi cons, which is probably a couple steps further along the grand scale of nerddom. This year, I attended WorldCon, or the World Science Fiction Convention, a science fiction and fantasy convention established in 1939.
If you enjoy retellings of traditional stories, Marissa Meyer is for you! Heroes and villains are not what they seem in this fantasy story. Nova is a villain seeking vengeance against the (mostly) beloved Renegades, but as she grows closer to one Renegade in particular, the lines begin to blur. I found myself wanting to root for both heroes and villains. It's fast-paced and action-packed.
For many readers, Joanne Harris will forever be known as the author who brought them the delectable Chocolat. They'd likely be as shocked as I was to discover this gem from Harris, a collection of Norse myths all written from the perspective of the diabolical Loki!
(Sorry, Loki . . . I just couldn't resist!)
Prince Sebastian has a secret, one no one can ever find out. At night, he wears beautiful dresses and takes Paris by storm as a fashion icon named Lady Crystallia.

But she dreams of greatness as a fashion designer, but as long as she remains a secret, she will never be able to gain recognition for her work.

I loved how this book turned around the YA cliche of a girl dressing up as a guy, but I honestly loved...
Before I say anything else, I just want to say, without qualifications, that I had a lot of fun playing this game.
Sometimes you want to play a game that is deep and meaningful, with intricate gameplay and insight into human nature, that will draw you in for weeks on end.
Sometimes you just want some cute fluff you can knock out in a matter of hours.
This is definitely the latter.
