Hey everyone! So today I decided to post some mini-reviews, I’m on a role with my Goodreads reading challenge this year (already 44 books!) and I wanted to share with some of the books that didn't make the review list.
I am a huge fan of Nora Roberts futuristic detective series. I have read all the “In-Death” books to date and this was a really good one. Will plenty of red-herrings, it was hard to work out who the culprit was - and the ending had a really nice twist to it. Looking forward to the next release in September!
This series has been on my TBR pile for long - I’m only sad I didn't pick it up sooner. I love the world-building so much and the ideas of multiple Londons and magic coats. The characters were also super interesting and there was just so much about this book to like!
I thought this story danced to a slower pace than the first book, but we got to meet some interesting new characters and explore more of the world. I really enjoyed the plot and loved how each character had their own problems to deal with - before ultimately gathering together for the bigger picture. Really looking forward to starting book 3!
A proper old-school-style fantasy! This was actually a re-read since I first read this book back when I was a pre-teen. However I think I understood the world much better this time around, although the plot wasn't quite as deep as I remembered. Still this is a series I would like to continue with and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of High-fantasy. Aka, long and winding journeys, dark creatures, sword fights and of course, a foretold “chosen” hero.
This book was the biggest disappointment. The first 80% was fabulous but that ending?! Words cannot describe how much I hated it. Not only were so many questions left unanswered, but the ending essentially made the previous storyline completely redundant. As much as I loved the first two books in thus trilogy, I would now be wary to read anything else by this author….
The final book in the Blackhearts trilogy, I utterly and thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters had such great dynamics, I loved the world-building and the plot was super intriguing. It was a brilliant end to the series and I’m really looking forward to reading more books by Liz De Jager.
