Review Round Up: Aug 2016


I got this one free from the author as part of a contest. This one had a brisk pace in the beginning that drew me in. I liked the different magic systems and the larger mystery with the king. Cool world building and concept.

Things got a little muddied for me in the second half where they seemed to be running back and forth a lot. I also never really cared for the leading lady.

Still a fun book though and I would recommend it.


I listened to this as an audio book, and it was really good at making a long car ride fly by. I love fairy books! This one had a great heroine, fun magic and action, and it just zipped along.

There were some predictable aspects of it, but I didn’t mind too much. It’s one of those books that can be read in an evening/weekend without any pause.

I’d love to finish the series and see how things develop next time I have a hole in my reading list!


I really like the concept of the emrys here—creatures made up of light. Another thing I really liked was that the hero was pregnant because I think it added another layer of drama that other books don’t have. There were some great character moments and it was an enjoyable read.

What I struggled with were drawn out passages of internal thought, and I couldn’t get the math to work in a way that made me comfortable with a love triangle involving a mother, daughter and the same guy—even with fantasy/immortal elements in play. Didn’t like it in Twilight. Don’t like it here.

It was a clean read though, with a nice premise. It will be interesting to see what else this author does.

All my Reviews are all up on Goodreads.
