Blog Tour Review: A Crown in Time by Jennifer Macaire

A Crown in Time cover

For the most part I really enjoyed A Crown in Time – there were Outlander (Diana Gabaldon) & Caityn (Elizabeth Davies) vibes throughout the story, & I was incredibly curious about where the story would go. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed by the ending, but I still appreciated Macaire’s writing.

Blog Tour Review: Crimival by R. L. Walker

Crimival

 

Crimival was a quick read which was great entertainment for a Saturday night when I was feeling super poorly. I didn’t completely love this story but I definitely want to read the first book as Crimival made lots of hints I want to know more about.

Blog Tour Promo & Giveaway: Resurrection Girls by Ava Morgyn

Resurrection GirlsOlivia Foster hasn’t felt alive since her little brother drowned in the backyard pool three years ago. Then Kara Hallas moves in across the street with her mother and grandmother, and Olivia is immediately drawn to these three generations of women. Kara is particularly intoxicating, so much so that Olivia not only comes to accept Kara’s morbid habit of writing to men on death row, she helps her do it. They sign their letters as the Resurrection Girls.

But as Kara’s friendship pulls Olivia out of the dark fog she’s been living in, Olivia realizes that a different kind of darkness taints the otherwise lively Hallas women—an impulse that is strange, magical, and possibly deadly.

Shadow Frost is officially one of my favourite two books of the year (Stronger Than A Bronze Dragon being the other) & I can’t get my head around the fact that the author is only 19! I got so caught up in this world & Asterin’s life that I dreamt about it & dreaded finishing it – yet another 2019 book has consumed me.

So it’s late in the day but this review is actually going up on time – hooray! Why is it late? Well this book was a lot longer than I realised but that’s okay, because it was a fantastic, well-rounded story that is the start of a series but could definitely be appreciated as a stand-alone.

Silverlegs Part 1: Seed of Rage by Camilla Monki

Seed of Rage

Seed of Rage is great for fans of The Poppy War; it’s a dark fantasy that presents itself as YA but the graphic detail of violence means it can only be an adult adventure. This book is a wild adventure that completely consumed me & I am obsessed with that cover!

I was sent this book to review as part of a blitz organised by Xpresso Tours.

 

 

⚠️ Silverlegs is a grimdark fantasy novel set in a world inspired by the late Roman empire. The heroine evolves in an environment that is violent, classist, misogynistic, and homophobic.
