So here’s the thing: when I first read the synopsis for this book I was so damn excited to read it. Strong female characters, magic, kilt-wearing warriors, backstabbing, prophecies, and war. Sounds like the perfect recipe for a new high fantasy series, right? And yet, this one didn’t do it for me at all. The […]
“Trust no one, betray everyone.Kill or be killed, always.” This book has been compared to Six of Crows. And while they are both about a group of kids going on a mission, the resemblance stops there. This book isn’t about a group of misfit friends. I would call them a gang of acquaintances at best […]

“And as she turned, it was revealed by her tread that she was fireborne.” There hasn’t been a fantasy book that has captivated me so intently in a long time. This book was pretty darn perfect. And I’m not saying that because everything works out beautifully. In fact, I think the best part about this […]
