You know that book that rocks your world? The one that goes beyond your hopes for great reading? The one that shines like a precious, rough-cut stone?

THE SCORPION’S LULLABY by Juliet Vane sucked me in from page one. Welcome to a world that is primal, raw and jagged as the fight for survival against the odds and isolationism creates walls that lead to mistrust and conflict. Survival of the fittest does not always mean survival of the best and love and trust are a rare commodity.

The Scorpion's Lullaby by Juliet Vane was a fast-paced and engaging heroine's journey. Joella is a member of a group called the Scorpion Raiders, who ride massive scorpions through the jungles of their land, raiding caravans and pillaging villages. Joella's mum encouraged her to train from a young age so she could join the Raiders, and find safety in life.

After Joella shows mercy during a village raid by returning necessary medicine to the village healer, her Monsieur (read tribal leader) tasks

I loved every moment of this imaginative work. It’s a fully immersive fantasy world with its own belief system, and tons of fantasy creatures (gigantic scorpions that the Scorpion Raiders ride upon, and several ape-like creatures) and even imaginative vegetation choking the jungle. It reminded me of Uprooted by Naomi Novik (she had evil trees that were choking out the forest in that, too). It also reminded me of Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan (the traveling through the hazardous wood, meeting ...more

Juliet Vane excelled with this book and it was one of the best books I have ever read. It isn't a book that I would have ever picked up on my own but because I love Juliet's books, I gave this a go. Once I started this book I was hooked by the end of the first chapter and it was so hard when I had to put it down. Joella who is one of the main characters makes you fall in love with her and the journey she takes. Even though it is not real life it feels like it is and that it really could have hap ...more

This beautiful, creepy book is brimming over with atmosphere and characters you'll root for from the first page.

I loved the unique system of myth and the depth of Joelle and Marc and the slow and complex unfurling of their relationship.

Vane has a unique talent to craft fast-paced action scene while not neglecting the inner life of her multi-dimensional characters. There is something here for fantasy loves, for lovers of storytellers, and for those looking to lose themselves in strong passionat

This is a beautiful story. Juliet is a masterful storyteller. I felt as if I was a part of the story, feeling fear, love, and every other emotion all through the book. I really hope there is more to this story.

This is sooo not my usual kind of read but I still enjoyed it because it had the elements that I enjoy. The characters were colorful and the story peaked my interest. I guess I enjoy this author no matter what the subject--one of my favorite! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Juliet grew up in northern California, where she spent her free time staring at spooky lakes and making up stories about the old buildings surrounding them. Years later, she still lives in California and she still makes up spooky stories…about lakes and the old buildings surrounding them. Like April in April’s Ghosts, she’s terrified of spiders and she’s obsessed with Hamilton. Like Lissa in June' ...more
