Uniting the Heavens was a very fun and full of action story, with nice characters and a very beautiful setting and the best part, a lot of magic.

I have to admit, it took me a while to get into the book. There were too many informations and too many things happening from the start, that made me confused. The author does a pretty good job at building her world, the problem was that many informations were given much later than they should. Exaple: When Selina was introduced, she came out of nowhere

I could not put it down! Uniting the Heavens hits the sweet spot of a quick read with the magic of rich character development and layered plot. When does book two come out?

I'd be damned if I didn't say this was a good book. I typically like sticking with my normal go-to books, and I don't care to step out of my favourite genre and expectations. However, this book got me questioning my entire life. It was amazing and when I finished, I couldn't keep the smile hidden. This was brilliant and I don't even know proper words anymore. The only problems I had were; it was a bit disjointed at points, and it also had a few spelling errors. But overall, pretty good. Can't wa ...more

I met Emily English at FaerieCon East this year and I am SO glad I did! I bought a copy of Uniting the Heavens there and read it over the next few weeks. It did take a little time to get into it, but once I did get into it, it grabbed me and wouldn't let go. I love the story line and the characters. I finished up the last few pages of the book and went to look when the next book will be published. I can hardly wait to read the next one!

Stars, What did you do to me? I'm suffering from a hangover and my mind are still playing the scenes from the last chapters where the whole Cordelacht/ Tiedans are fighting from the mages and summoned monster.

I want to make this whole review about Aren only, how he's so amazing, so perfectly handsome, so appealing, alluring, attractive, smart, brave, very ideal brother, and a faithful citizen of Tiede. But of course that's foul, it will be unfair for the other characters. Let me tell you first

Recommends it for: If you want a different fantasy.
I was given a free electronic copy of this book by the author, in accordance with the terms of For Love of a Book's Advance Reader Opportunity Program.

You know, the problem with having a favourite genre, fantasy in my case, is that every book ends up feeling a bit the same and I end up fed up of it. So it is delightful to find books that reinvent the genre as beautifully as Uniting the Heavens. The word that comes to my mind when I think of Cordelacht is "colorful", not only for the actual colou

Great book! I could barely put it down. I received it on Monday and I was done reading it by Saturday night of that week. The story was riveting and I could not wait to see what happens next. I'm looking forward to the next installment!

This is another one for which I wish I could give half stars, because I'd like to give it 2.5 stars. It wasn't that I disliked it, but I didn't exactly like it either. I've been thinking about it on and off ever since I actually finished it, trying to work out what exactly I think of it and why.

First of all, there was a lot of interesting stuff hi

Such a good read!
I love the magic and mystery of the story as well as the mature themes (mostly because English acts mature while she's writing the story). I could read this book again and again.

Stars, what a book! I was pulled in from the very first chapter and taken on a exciting ride that would make even a gree nervous. Sinister things are afoot in the beautifully imaginative world of Cordelacht. What starts as a relaxing day for Aren, the young, bumbling apprentice, quickly leads to murder, mystery, and magic (not always the good kind). This story is full of striking characters and layered with mythology, humor, and intrigue that will keep the pages turning late into the night. I ca ...more

This impressive debut fantasy novel is an imaginative tale of a lowly apprentice stepping up to defend his city against a mysterious, murderous monster. The grand library he works in is distinctly steampunk—filled with maps, scrolls, vials, and stardust “like sand glittering in the twilight”—and the dark forest he finds himself lost in is mythological in its ominousness and nearly inescapable. English’s storytelling is as compelling as her intricate world-building, and I’m excited about the pros ...more
