I kept having flash backs of Mad Max which made me appreciate Adam's journey even more. He's one fierce character and it was always an adventure, filled with action and danger where he was concerned. I fell completely in love with the world that David created.
I couldn't imagine being in Adam's shoes and it's no wonder he did everything in his power to escape Blackwater. Seeing life through his eyes was downright fascinating and I felt like I was on a never-ending roller coaster with non-stop action. I can't forget to mention Sadie and Kane and how I enjoyed delving more and more into their characterizations as the story progressed.
I was completely caught off guard at how much I enjoyed this book. The time and pages just flew by as I gobbled up this story. I would without a doubt pick up the next book that this author publishes!...more

II thought The Winner’s Curse knocked it out of the park but The Winner’s Crime takes the cake. This installment was filled with nail biting tension. I felt like I was watching a game of cat and mouse and could only hold my breath and hope that Kestra and Arin weren’t in over their heads.
The characters in this book are unforgettable. The things that they endured for what they believed in made me fall in love with them even more. Every interaction with Kestra and Arian had me on the edge of my seat. I could only wait to see how everything would play out. And boy did it go in a direction that I could have never imagined!
Oh what a tangled web we weave...I can't wait to see how the next book unfolds. Just brilliant!...more

This book was an unsuspected surprise. Anytime I read a book by an author that I’ve never read before, I have to get a feel for the writing style and the voice. I will say that it took me a chapter or two to really get into the story but once I got the hang of it, I did not let go. I fell in love with the imagery which was magical in itself. I could see the world that Renee created perfectly. It was so mesmerizing and I enjoyed every detail.
I can’t say enough about the characters – they embody what I love in fantasy. Kazi is fierce and I loved that she could hold her own. I fell in love with Khalid through Kazi - these two are perfect for each other. You know what I can’t wait for? I can’t wait to see what happens with the other characters in this book like Tariq – he’s intriguing and a force within his own right.
I love when books in this genre have kick-ass action and I feel like I got a small taste and it left me wanting more. I‘m hopeful that there will be more sword-wielding action in the next book. I’m just ready for a major showdown to see whose left standing when the dust settles. ...more

Tahir created a world full of political intrigue, sword-wielding action, and a cast of unforgettable characters. This is one of those books that whispers tantalizing words like - ‘one more chapter, just one more chapter’ – just be prepared for some sleepless nights. I was loathe to put this book down but in the end, sleep won the battle.
Told from alternating POVs, I was taken on a mind-boggling journey where danger lurked at every turn and every word or action could be used against you. This book is bloody fabulous – literally. I love how gritty the world that Tahir has built is. There’s always some unforeseen threat and when it happens, you’re pulled into the story even more. I felt for these characters – the things they had to go through were unfathomable.
This is one of those books that will stick with you. I didn’t want it to end and I just know there will be a follow up. I would encourage anyone to give this book a try. Hopefully, you’ll be just as enthralled as I was....more

The buzz for this book flapped around my ears constantly urging me to take notice. Well, it snagged my attention and that was all she wrote. I was glued to the pages of this spellbinding adventure and thought of every excuse to get out of daily duties just to live in the beautifully complex world that Aveyard created.
The characters were outstanding and the plot wickedly twisted with its treachery. Oh how I love Mare! She is what I love, love in heroines. She’s fierce and I was constantly delighted to be inside her head as she navigated her way through a host of danger. The clues were there but like Mare, I didn’t know who to trust. Aveyard did an excellent job keeping me guessing.
This book had everything – action, danger, romance, and an unforgettable host of characters. A rollercoaster ride with twists and turns, this book is a nonstop page turner. I can't wait for the next ride! This book is a must read! ...more

I’m so sad that this series had to end but it was one helluva ride. With unforgettable characters striving to survive in a world like no other, this book was filled with heart-pounding non-stop action. The characters in this series have earned a special place in my heart.
Penryn – oh how I love this fiery heroine who will jump through the gates of hell to save her family. I also can’t get enough of Raffe – such a fierce warrior and honorable protector right down to the end. With this being the last book in the series, we were given everything then some. There were so many obstacles that Penryn and Raffe had to overcome that I couldn’t possibly imagine how they would fare in the end with the impossible choices they faced.
There are so many amazing characters in this series especially Penryn’s mom. That woman kept me entertained! I’m content with how Penryn’s story played out but I will say that I was expecting a little more with the ending. After I turned the last page, I was like - “That’s it.” So, I guess I have to let my imagination fill in the blanks but it’s all good. I’m going to miss this series but I can’t wait to see what Susan Ee writes next.

There aren't enough words or adjectives to describe how much I love this book or series for that matter. Sarah is one amazing storyteller. I got lost in the pages of this book. Oh, how I didn't want the story to end. I'll say it again, Sarah, whatever you do, please don't stop sharing your wonderful gift! You are truly amazing and awe inspiring.
I have to tip my hat off to Sarah. She’s an impeccable storyteller. Every book that she’s written has received 5 starred reviews from me and that hasI have to tip my hat off to Sarah. She’s an impeccable storyteller. Every book that she’s written has received 5 starred reviews from me and that has to mean something on a short list. Every time I finish reading one of her books, I just sit back in awe. A Court of Thorns and Roses takes you on a surreal adventure that you want to escape into. This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat.
With well-crafted characters and a magical world of mystery and enchantment, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I don’t know how Sarah comes up with her stories; she’s just brilliant! The intricacies in the plot are cleverly written and awe-inspiring. I didn’t want this book to end.
I’ll be waiting on pins and needles for the next installment because it’s more than likely that the journey that lies ahead will be just as treacherous for the cast. If you’re reading this review then listen closely: It’s A.MUST.READ! I can’t express enough how great this book is, you won’t be disappointed. ...more

So, I had great expectations for Crown of Midnight and the anticipation was enough to make me go stir crazy. To say the least, Crown of Midnight did not disappoint. I gobbled this novel up like there was no tomorrow.
Everyone knows I like strong heroines and Celaena has become one of my all-time favorite heroines. She could kick your ass from ten ways to Sunday. Celaena went through a complete transformation and retribution was imminent. I would break my neck trying to cross the street if I saw her coming. Sarah gave me everything I could want in this book and more. The characters in this series are unforgettable and the action and mystery kept me on the edge of my seat. I was glad to see a different side a Celaena. I have to mention Dorian and Chaol. These men are loveable in their own way and I can’t wait to see where their paths will lead in the next book.
There were surprises around every corner and some mind boggling revelations. This series is a must read. I would recommend it to anyone who will listen. If you haven’t started this series yet, now’s the time to jump aboard. With a well-crafted plot, unforgettable characters, and kickass action, you won’t be disappointed....more

Days of Blood and Starlight takes readers into the minds of multiple characters. This approach was totally unexpected but it hit the nail on the coffin. I was completely taken. In this highly anticipated sequel, no one is safe.
This series has some great characters and my heart went out to Karou and Akiva. They are still facing tough decisions when it comes to the war and their forbidden love. The stakes are high and deadly as ever. I was on pins and needles as I read this book. The writing is superb and the author has a gift for storytelling. She lures you into her world and keeps you turning the pages.
I would recommend this series to anyone who will listen. This series has become one of my favorites and I am looking forward to getting back into the world that Laini has created. It’s one that you'll have a hard time forgetting. Period. ...more
