Book Review: The Dragonet Prophecy

Series like Wings of Fire and Warriors really make me wonder about what people consider “violent” in children’s books. Clay and his friends have grown up under a mountain, secretly raised by the Talons of Peace to fulfill a mysterious prophecy. The five young dragons are destined to end the war that’s been raging between…

Book Review: Dragon’s Milk

I went into this book thinking it was Juvenile fiction and boy was I wrong. “You must go to the dragon. You must leave tonight.” Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows what she must do. She must search out the mother dragon whose draclings have just hatched and somehow get some of…

Book Review: Before the Storm

I knew this book was going to be climactic considering it’s the buildup to Battle for Azeroth, but this was definitely much more of a heavy-hitter than I expected.   THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE NOVEL. Taking place after the climactic events of Shadows of Argus, World of Warcraft: Before the Storm tells…

Book Review: Beneath the Sugar Sky

I don’t think I liked this as much as Down Among the Sticks and Bones, but I definitely liked it more than Every Heart a Doorway. Beneath the Sugar Sky returns to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. At this magical boarding school, children who have experienced fantasy adventures are reintroduced to the “real” world.  Sumi…

Book Review: A Thousand Perfect Notes

This. Book.  Cait, what have you done. An emotionally charged story about the power of dreams, and how passion can turn to obsession. Beck hates his life. He hates his violent mother. He hates his home. Most of all, he hates the piano that his mother forces him to play hour after hour, day after…

Book Review: Royals

I don’t really know what I expected going into this.  I met Rachel Hawkins at YATL in February, and she cracked me up.  I’ve never read any of her other books, but I’m pretty sure I need to visit them all now because this book was AMAZING. Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian…

Spelling My Name With Books Tag: Star Wars Edition

So, if you didn’t already know, I’m a fan of Star Wars.  Not that Disney knockoff, but the expansive universe.  I have no problem with anyone being a Disney SW fan, but I hate the stuff and the train-wreck that Disney has created. Without further ado, here is my name written in Star Wars book…

Book Review: Atlas Fallen

I went into this having one friend saying it was a five star read and another friend not even able to get more than one hundred pages into it.  I guess it’s an irony since I sit right in the middle. One space station. One throne. And the girl who holds the key. Tesla Petrov,…

Book Review: Venguard

It’s been a few years since I read the Razorlands Trilogy, but whatever gift/curse I have makes it where I remember almost everything from a book (unless it’s for school and I hate it hah).  So, I went into this remembering all the blood, gore, people eating of the trilogy and this one was so…

Book Review: Children of Blood and Bone

I’m so saddened to say that I was bored by this book.  African fantasy?  Sign me up.  But the execution for this wasn’t what the hype led me to believe.  I was expecting an epic fantasy.  What I got was an African TOG. I DNFed this on page 448 of 525. I’ll be explaining as…
