They say that sequels are usually not as good as the first book. That’s definitely not the case here. For me, Glass Frost is way better than First Frost. Cause even though I was quite fond of First Frost, reading that book felt more like being an indifferent spectator. I felt nothing at all for the characters and the story. In Glass Frost, on the other hand, I was sucked into the book from page one. There was not a moment when I felt indifferent. And I definitely had no troubles creating a bond with our four heroes ^^ What a vast and wonderful improvement!
In this book, too, there’s a well-thought story that will leave you hanging at times, will keep you on the edge of your seat and up at night. That in combination with the lovely world that Liz DeJesus created, is nothing but amazing. This time we focus on Cinderella, or should I say Helena (always found it a bit strange to have a name like that ;) ). We get to know fairies, THE dwarves, a frog Queen and the parents of both Terrance and Ferdinand. There’s more info about the “true” Snow White and her adventures. Some truths are revealed and more mysteries are created. Words can’t describe how giddy I felt with every new thing that came across my path. I absolutely love this world!!!
It was also great to spent more time with prince Ferdinand, Terrance, Ming and Bianca. They are great persons to be around, although I was a bit disappointed with Ming. Instead of the amazing sidekick she was in First Frost, she became a scaredy-cat, who only thinks about herself. What happened to best friend through and through? Shouldn’t they stick together? Nope, Ming flees at the first opportunity she gets. I was NOT impressed.
Bianca, too, had her less than stellar moments. I mean how bad can it be that the curse backfired on you? You DID save your boyfriend and your mom can make something so you’ll be normal once again. So who cares that you look like a freak for two days and hides in her room? Not me! I think I’d find it too fascinating to look like that for a while ;) As for the boys, I have nothing but good words for them. Prince Ferdinand is just too adorable for words and will definitely make you laugh with his antics and Terrance is always there to save the day. Yup, no complaints from me ^^ May they always be like that ^^
4 HEARTS. For a change a sequel that’s BETTER than the book one. Where we find out more about this amazing world named Everafter. With a stellar story that will keep you reading and four very likable and lovable characters. Even though Bianca and Ming both had moments where I was not so happy with them. A book that I, once again can recommend to everyone who loves fairy tales and Once Upon a Time ^^(less)
Reading his book had its moments. Some good, some not so quite. The story as such is quite captivating....more*Originally Reviewed at Witchmag's Boekenplank*
Reading his book had its moments. Some good, some not so quite. The story as such is quite captivating. We have a princess who has to marry a man she can’t stand. Unless she manages to find another suitable candidate. At the same time she gets involved in a mystery, that started sixteen years ago… When 48 babes were stolen and only 47 bodies could be found. Finally the last one is found, alive. A boy who has been raised by the enemy and actually is not as ugly as our princess thought he would be. But not suitable at all as a candidate…
Sounds good doesn’t it? In reality, it was not that spectacular. The story was too lengthy for me. It took too long before something, anything happened. In the meantime you get to read about all kinds of superfluous details of the daily life at the palace. The way people look is also described till the smallest details. Which is way too much for me. I mean, I don’t need to know the EXACT height or what people are wearing. Just hints are enough. This overuse of details made it hard for me to focus, especially in the middle. It was so boring! However before I knew it I was sucked in again, with the help of some unexpected twists that continue to shake me to the core. And in turn made me very curious to what the next book will bring ^^
Not only the amount of details made it hard at times, there’s also our main lead, Alera. Who apparently is very grown-up and rebellious. Yeah right, I have seldom read about such a naïve, spoiled, thoughtless and pliable character. Especially her inability to think before she acted was infuriating at times. I mean how could someone possible think that if you tell that a certain person forsook his most important duty, that person would not get fired? How? That was not the only time Alera obviously lacked some brain cells and made me sigh and groan. At such times it was hard to resist my tendency to put the book down. But I prevailed and watch her grow. Towards the ending she finally made me astonished in a positive way. WOW! I did not expect such bravery from her!
Not all was bad though, there were enough characters besides Alera that did not work on my nerves. Some I even got to love. Like Narian and the mystery he presents. He was the main reason I kept on going. His cuteness and the puzzle he presented. Cause why exactly did he return? What did he do during his years with the enemy? Oh my questions were endless and my curiosity high! Of course they were not answered or satisfied in this one…. I so love and hate it when authors do that to me ^^
3 HEARTS. Even though this book was lengthy and too detailed at times, the ending made it worthwhile. Our main character, Alera, and I had a VERY rocky start because of the way she acted. She was so annoying! Fortunately there are some nice secondary characters and Narian. I was unable to see through him, which made him unpredictable and kept me reading. Add to that one heck of an ending and I find myself looking forward to the next book!(less)

Gaaah. While typing this review I can still feel my heart beating in my throat. What a thrilling ending! What a great book! It made me feel like I was watching a horror movie. Some moments felt so real, so bone chilling. It’s been quite some time that I had much trouble with keeping my calm while reading. At times I was almost too scared to continue reading. I just knew what was coming and that it was inevitable…. Gosh, what a good book this was.
Fortunately for the “chicken” inside of me there were enough moments where the focus was on other, much more fun events. Like the blossoming feelings Violet has for Jay. I quite liked that she does not act like every other girl who falls in love with her best friend. Nope, she hates it and can’t wait to go back to the old and familiar. When Jay was just Jay and not the boy that makes her insides all giggly. Knowing that little fact makes it even more fun to watch her getting all jealous and at the same time trying to hide the fact that she is ^^ It’s hard keeping such a big secret from your BFF!
Violet truly is a brave and strong girl. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be, hearing “echoes” of dead animals or humans. Who have been murdered. Echoes that won’t stop ringing till she buries the dead. Echoes that also can be heard from the person or animal who is responsible for a killing. Even if it was “in the line of duty.” Therefore I forgive her slip-up at the end. Even though my mind still fails to comprehend how she could even think about it. I mean, the last thing I’d want to be is alone when a serial killer is out there! Enfin, I’ll stop here before I start ranting, it’s obviously she’s learned her lesson and let’s hope she doesn’t do it again.
The plot was great too, you get to see things through the eyes of the murderer and still there’s not enough clues to decipher who it could be. And the moment you think they’ve got him, there’s an unexpected twist and you’re back where you started. Wow! Did not see that one coming! I discovered one sore spot though, the plot gets a bit lengthy towards the end. It might be because I’m not the most patient person around that it got a bit boring, but what else could you expect from me? Page after page I could feel adrenaline souring through me body. I still did not know who the killer was and all they were talking about was normal day life? So not what I wanted to read about… The real ending, though, made it worthwhile, but still. I almost gave it a heart less because it took so long. Fortunately the big revelation was the best of the best. I almost had to cry, what usually means it was a good one ;)
4 HEARTS. A thrilling and compelling book. That switches between humor and funny passages and a scary thriller. This book will let you feel your heart racing in your throat and ill have you gasping for breath. It has a strong and brave main character named Violet with some unusual abilities. Even though it gets a bit boring towards the end, it ends with a big bang. A great read for everyone who likes a good romance and a fearful story.(less)
A copy was made available by the author in exchange for an honest review
Even though I could predict how most of the story would go just from reading the blurb. Even though the plot is not very new, or refreshing. (Lost princess? I can’t even count how many books I’ve read about that . ) Even though there were some other things that happened in the story that I did not like very much, I enjoyed reading this book. It has just the right mix of entertaining characters, good story and a lovely heroine to keep my attention. To let me like this book ^^
As I said, the plot is not very imaginative. It was easy to guess how everything would end, but M.L. LeGette kept me reading by not clearly explaining the who, the how and the what. She made characters behave in such a way it was hard to predict what their role was. Where they the good guys? Or bad? Or something in between? It was hard to guess at times, which made reading this book the more fun ^^
Mally Briddle was a great gal. She was obviously a bit too gullible at times. How else could you believe that someone is a Rebel, when you just met him? And agree the next moment to go on a life threatening mission? She could also be prone to acting rashly and therefore putting her and everyone in the Rebel army in danger. I mean, just because you found a new clue, you don’t have to risk your life and that of the Rebel army again and again by ignoring curfew and sneaking to meet them. What happened to secrecy? Besides these minor character flaws it was a joy to read about her. She’s got her heart in the right place and doesn’t hesitate to run out and help people. Even though she’s a bit clumsy at times, it just makes her more adorable to me.
One last thing though, but this is just a little, little thing that bothered me. The story takes place in a fantasy world, with Medieval aspects. And suddenly they are talking about December and Christmas??? Yeah…. that just didn’t sit right with me. I mean, never once was spoken about a God or deity or anything like it and the next thing I know they are celebrating a Christian feast. Couldn’t it be called Yule or something like that? And December? Did our calendar already exist there? It didn’t fit in the whole. But that’s just the nitpicker in me I doubt anyone else would be bothered by this
3 HEARTS. Even without a very refreshing plot I felled compelled to finish this book. To get to know the truth, to know all the details. It has very likable characters, who are difficult to categorize. Are they the good or bad guys? A lovely heroine, who could be too gullible or too enthusiastic at times and therefore putting everyone at risk. Still, I had a good time reading this book and I recommend it to everyone for a dull Sunday afternoon.(less)
While reading this book I experienced a roller coaster of emotions. However, the first emotion I encountered was annoyance. The story hadn’t taken off yet and it was too soon for me and Freddy to be joined at the hip. Therefore I felt annoyed when she started doing things which obviously wouldn’t end well. This made continuing the book a hardship and the only thing that prevented me from throwing it away was her mysterious parentage.
The next thing I knew, the story picked up pace and I was hooked! At that moment the roller coaster started for real. I can’t even count or describe all the different emotions I experienced while reading this book. There were times where my heart was beating in my throat, so tense was the situation. Or I felt tears rolling down my cheeks because of the hopelessness. Unfortunately, even with all those emotions toying with me, there were still times were I felt annoyed. This time not because of Freddy, nope. This time her male counterpart was to blame!
And that was a first for me. Normally I’m too focused on our hero’s hotness, his willingness to save our heroine when she’s once again doing something stupid and the mysterious air that surrounds male protagonists. Deg, though, just worked on my nerves. He’s sooooo not hero material. More like a lazy god who only thinks about saving his own skin. He’s always minutes too late in saving Fred, who by the way is more than capable of saving them BOTH. He’s also good in making problems worse. Actually, he behaved like a typical FEMALE ya protagonist. It was like the situation was reversed. Although I quite liked the fact that for once the hero is doing BLOND things, it didn’t make me less annoyed when Deg was at it again.
As I said, Fred and I had a rocky start. After that she grew to someone I loved to read about. She has her heart on the right place. Knows how to kick-ass and won’t let anyone shut her op. I especially liked that temper of hers! As I came know her more and more I also developed a huge compassion for Fred and the situation she gets caught in. It brought me close to tears a couple of times. I could totally feel her desperation, the unfairness of it all. For a moment I thought she would give up, but fortunately she found the strength to fight back. Which made me love her all the more.
It was also very fascinating to see how E.D. Walker mixed ancient Greek Gods with Celtic myths and legends. She managed to create an intriguing world where many gods and mythical creatures found a place to live. The plot was also quite strong and well-developed. It had me on the edge of my seat after the rather difficult start. The only real shame I felt was that this book is a stand-alone. I’d loved to discover more of this world and go on more adventures with Fred.
3.5 HEARTS. But I rounded it up to 4, since some parts just had me babbling ;) . Once you’re fully in the story, it was a great read. It also played around with my emotions and I adored our main character, Fred. The hardships she had to face… *shivers* I was less fond of our male character. He managed to annoy the crap out of me. He’s a god fo Christ’ Sake! Can’t he grow some balls? Anyway it’s a more than decent story with wonderful world building and vast amounts of gods and mythical creatures. Add to that a wonderful and well-done plot and I was quite fond of this book ^^(less)

Sarah always seemed to make the wrong decision and doesn't bother to make things right. Not until it's way too late. So I couldn't feel sorry for her, it's her own damn fault for not listening to the sound advice her friends repeatedly have given her.
I liked Angel, though. Even if I had a hard time understanding why he just couldn't accept Sydney. I kept thinking what if Sarah was adopted and he was her official brother? Would things have been different then???(less)

Even though the title of this book makes me start humming a certain song every time I see it, this story also managed to sweep me of my feet ^^ What a great book this was! It was nearly impossible for me to put it down. Even then my mind kept going back to the story. I honestly never thought that a book about wind would be this fascinating and intriguing! With every page that I read it became even more fantastic. Till the point that I thought: this can’t get any better. How wrong I was, cause at that moment the twist and turns were introduced. And once again I got caught up in a whirlwind of amazing events. *sigh* It was awesome!
The world-building is also top-notch. Shannon Messenger created a whole new world where it’s possible for sylphs to exist. Where they are able to control the winds. How amazing it would be to actually be one! To be able to ride the winds… I’d love to experience it at least once ^^ I also liked the aspect that every wind has its own language and spells. That sylphs are not just ordinary humans, but something else. With the power to do the most amazing things… This world rocks, it’s thought out and so detailed! I was really happy to discover this universe and can’t wait to go back to it.
Let’s not forget our main characters, cause they too are gush-worthy. First there’s Vane, the one who will save them all. At first I had a bit of trouble with seeing him as a guy. His way of thinking reminded me too much of a teenage girl. His distaste for shooters and such also didn’t help create a more masculine image of him in my mind. Till the moment he meets Audra. From then on, it’s more than obvious: Vane can be nothing else but a guy. And what a guy he is! He’s a great character, someone who kept me giggling with his antics. Although Audra wasn’t to happy with them. Really, those two together… You can only take out the popcorn and sit back and enjoy. They are THAT amusing ^^
Talking about Audra, at first I had problems with how she dealt with Vane. It appears as if she isn’t capable of seeing things through his eyes. I mean, he just heard a lot of incredible and unbelievable things. Without being told the who, how, why and what. She also has the idea that he will do everything she says. Yeah right, before doing something I understand nothing about, I, too, would ask a hundred things or more, so I could be sure that I do it right. I understand she didn’t have an easy life and what’s at stake, but as a fellow woman she is capable of using her emphatic abilities from time to time. Or is this different with Sylphs? Anyways, she’s a great kick-ass heroine. I really loved her coming to rescue Vane. That she was the stronger, or more experienced one of the two ^^ Cause we, women can fight too!
4 HEARTS. It’s an amazing book with an intriguing world I loved to discover. The book has a well-though plot and it takes you to new heights in a whirlwind of events and emotions. The world of the sylphs is very detailed and defined. It was a pleasure to read about. The two main characters are the cherry on top. They are so much fun to be around!(less)
I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review
Even though it’s a short and light read and I couldn’t fully connect with the characters, there is something with this book. Something that made me keep on going, loving every moment of it. It’s written in such a way that has me intrigued. I liked how in this book the vampires are more brutal, closer to the evil beings they once were for our ancestors. Cause you won’t find any “vegetarian” vampires, or soft, docile ones. Nope, we’re back to the beginning when vampires were at the top of the food chain and humans their food. Theirs to do with what they wanted. And it is a delightfully refreshing way to look at vampires.
The story is told through both Derek and Sofia. As I said I had some trouble connecting with the both of them. I just could not feel any depth in their emotions. My heart did not race in my throat and I could not bring myself to truly care. Other then that it was fun reading about them. Sofia started out as a true wallflower, but she gradually became more comfortable and had no problem with telling what she felt. And it was great to see her grow like that.
Derek…. The verdict is still out for him. I was not able to fully make up my mind. He’s much harder to decipher than Sofia. There’s so much history between him and the other vampires. I only touched the tip of the iceberg, but I’m curious to what is underneath the surface. What secrets he has. For now he is an OK vampire, a bit different from the rest. And a knight in shining armor for Sofia. I look forward to see how their relationship develops ^^
4 HEARTS. There’s just something with this book that will make you like it. Even thought it’s a short story and the emotions the characters experience don’t really come across. The not so fluffy vampires also help add to the appeal. Sofia, a blossoming wallflower and Derek, an unusual vampire make the magic complete. I look forward to the next installment!(less)
It took some time for me to get into the story. At first it felt a bit distant and I had some trouble with connecting to the characters. The book and story didn’t stand out from all the other paranormal stories I’ve read. It felt more like been there, done that. Till mystery was added to the mix. A missing page in a centuries old important book. Which might or might not hold all the answers… From that moment on I was intrigued and I started to enjoy the book
Jax and the rest of her friends felt a little on the thin “side” at first, they were flat. Therefore my connection problems. There was no real depth in the emotions they displayed. Especially from Jax I expected more, besides her daily anxiety for discovery, since she’s our main character. Besides the lack of heartfelt emotion I had also problems with the whole running away scheme. I know it’s not easy, running for your live and building a whole new existence somewhere else. But everything went too smooth, to the point that it made me skeptical (I know, maybe watched a bit too much movies, but still…). Fortunately later on everything changed for the better and was I fully connected to lively, full characters and a story where not everything went as Jax thought it would go.
Talking about Jax, I really loved her honesty. When she arrived at the point where she could not hide her identity anymore, she didn’t postpone the inevitable, didn’t try to come up with excuses, but just told the truth. Even if it might be the end of her friendships. Cause who can be friends with the hunter, when you’re the one he hunts?
The plot was nice too and it was not the usual story where someone transfers to a new school. No here we have a young girl running for her life. Only so she can be different, so she doesn’t succumb and gives in to the dark side (oooh Star Wars moment ). It was amazing to see how thorough Jax had considered everything. Nothing was left to chance. Much attention was paid to the temptation of giving in, to become evil, to use her powers again. And Jax had to try to refuse, cause otherwise she would be found…. Throw a very handsome Hunter in the mix and some romance and I’m in.
3 HEARTS. A light and enjoyable story, once you’re able to get across the halfway point. Before I felt the characters a bit on the “flat” side and had some trouble with getting into the story. But from the moment when there’s some puzzle the solve, the real story finally began and I was genuinely glad that I kept reading. It did help that there was a cute hunter and an even cuter witch, with a not so common story and I was a happy reader.(less)
First of all, just look at this cover! Isn’t it gorgeous? To be honest, it wasn’t until I wrote the review that I noticed it. And I fully blame it on my phone. It only lets you see a small picture of the cover, but what a beautiful cover it is! I love how everything fits and most of all I love the font. It totally fits the cover and the story, and what a story it was!
This book will take you to a world full of gods and goddesses, vampires and of course guardian angels. I was quite fond of it actually. It was very refreshing, especially the guardian angels. I’ve never read a story about them before. It’s a well thought-out world and I’d like to discover more. Even if my feminist heart was less happy with the pedestal goddesses were put on and the damsel in distress role they were given. Uhm, they control the four elements. Can’t they use those in a fight? Like throw fireballs at the enemy? Those can be quite deadly, I assure you! Fortunately for my heart there were also female guardian angels who know the ropes and a feisty main character. Who’s gonna chance one or two things, I’m sure
And I adored our feisty heroine, named Ruby. She isn’t shy at all and has no problems to stand up and fight for those she considers her friends and family. Her only problem is her docility. She’s too gullible. I would have kicked and screamed, be stubborn, or at least ask for time to think about it. And definitely not wholeheartedly embrace someone who minutes ago insulted my mom, gravely. Even if he saved my life. Ruby also has some problems with making the right the decisions, like your usual YA protagonist. Although in this book there is someone who makes her see the consequences of her actions! Progress! If only she was a bit more remorseful…
The plot was good too. It has a thrilling start, which kept me on the edge of my seat from page one. It mellows a bit afterwards, which gives you the opportunity to discover the world Skyla Madi created. She also makes sure there’s no opportunity to get bored. Cause the most important piece of information is forever left out, that piece you’ll need to understand the puzzle, to see the whole. Which makes you keep on reading. The only thing that bothered me was the re-explaining of events that happened a couple of chapters ago. It’s like this was a sequel and you had to refresh your memory about what exactly took place. I’m capable of remembering that much, thank you! Life-threatening situations tend to stick with you!
3 HEARTS. A good book with a great world to discover. With an amazing cover and a funny protagonist, who could be a bit too gullible at times. I liked the plot and it’s easy to get lost in this book. Even when Ruby failed to see the consequences of her actions and made not so smart decisions and with re-explaining of some events, like I wasn’t capable of remembering that much in a couple of hours.(less)
What a pleasant surprise this book was. I was intrigued after reading the blurb. What, no book about the chosen one, but his sister? Hmmm that sounds… interesting! It’s going to give a whole new perspective to the story, one that I haven’t got the chance to explore. And it did, but I didn’t expect to like this book that much! It even has a great twist when Becca’s anger flares once again and she decides to throw an ancient artifact at the head of one very annoying person. And after that it kept surprising me more and more. And I found myself liking the story even better^^
This all had to with our main protagonist: Becca. She’s the best. She’s awesome, has a mother instinct where a bear with cubs can say u against. Has a great sense of humor. She can have a temper tantrums, but oddly enough I found those very amusing and it made me love her more. In short: I loved her to death and she made me crack up often. How could I not when she’s comparing herself to a bull, complete with steam and flaring nostrils?
The romance in this book was also wonderful. Even though there is a soul mates concept, it’s not insta love. More like slowly getting to know each other and forming a bond. I have to admit, there were some moments where I thought Becca would do things that would endanger the budding romance, but fortunately she didn’t make the mistake of not speaking up. Or suddenly following her daddies orders ^^ And of course I like her the more for it. Nothing as annoying as two people who are meant to be together but are not because no one is talking… Anyway, even after the big confession they remained as cute as they where before, or even cuter and I hope they’ll always stay the same ^^
Then there’s the world-building. People with “magical” powers gifted by same goddess? Marvelous! Only setback was that mostly men were given these powers and the women who did receive some, are infinitely weaker as the men. My feminist heart did not like that part at all. Fortunately for my sensitive feminist heart there’s a huge turn in the story which made her thump her fist on her chest and say HELL YEAH! I look forward to finding out more about this world, full of people who can read minds, travel through time, move objects and what not. It’s definitely a great place to be ^^
Only reason I couldn’t give this book 5 hearts was because I was not wholly there in the great story that Julianna Scott created. Just like Alex and his illusions, I was still aware of my surroundings. I wasn’t swept away, I wasn’t entranced. Therefore no 5 hearts, but this book is still worthwhile to read!
4 HEARTS. This book took me by surprise. It has everything I love to have in a book: a great and lovable main protagonist who DOESN’T do stupid things. Hart-thumping romance, a good plot and great world-building. If only it could make me forget the world around me completely…. Still a more than worthy read I can recommend to any YA fan out there ^^(less)
This book didn’t move me at all. It failed to make me feel something, anything. Not even negative emotions were activated inside me. All I could feel was one big Meeeh (And no, I do not have a sheep inside me ;) ). There were moments in the story where I could almost feel something, but before I could tell which emotion it was, the moment was already over. Oh wait, I did feel one emotion throughout the story besides my sheep: confusion. At times I had the greatest difficulty with keeping track of what was happening or what had occurred. Especially when the point of view is switched between Milo and Nick. It was not always clear when the switch took place and made for an even more confused me.
It’s also hard trying to follow a story if you get tons and tons of information to process at once. That’s what happened in this book. Even then the information is still not detailed enough to get an idea of what’s going on. I saw only glimpses of scenes and persons, but was never able to complete the picture, to make them come alive in my head. The culprit (this time) could be the rather unique comparisons the writer used. They obviously failed their purpose: I was unable to create an image. Cause who knows what beams that angled peaceably are???
Just like me, our main characters had great difficulty with showing or feeling any kind of deep emotions. Nowhere in this book is there any kind of mention or sign about the attraction between Milo and Nick, the sorrow of loosing your dad or the despondency of the situation. Not anywhere. Maybe this explains why I could not feel a thing. Cause how else would it be possible for me to feel my heart in my throat if the character’s heart doesn’t even beat faster? (And no, I’m not going into the fact that he’s an alien ;) )
Since our main characters don’t feel a lot, I had a hard time with giving them a voice, an identity. And for some reason I had great difficulty with remembering Milo’s name. She’s a main character, so how is it possible she couldn’t leave a single impression on me? Milo is also prone to the usual unbelievable “mistakes”, just to make the story more interesting (which did not happen). Instead it made me feel annoyed (yay, another emotion!).
In the end, despite the total lack of emotions and bonding with the main characters, I rather liked the plot. Okay, we have our very cliché moments and some very predictable ones ( Would the DoD really treat Aliens like that?), but I quite enjoyed myself while reading this book. The puzzle that represented Nick and his “family” also deserves some brownie points. It kept me busy and was very original.
2 HEARTS. This book did not succeed in leaving any kind of impression on me. There was too little use of emotions, from anyone, to leave a more lasting impact. The plot, though, deserves some merit. Despite some overused scenes in the story world, it was interesting to read about Nick’s family and what they represented.(less)
