White Stag by Kara Barbieri

I enjoyed this story well enough, but felt it was full of cliche characters and used violence as the only means to move the story along. Violence in the present and the violent abuse the main character suffered in her past were constantly used to fur ...more

Holy hell, this book was brutal. Mia is unapologetically dark, and I love it. I remember being a bit annoyed at the narrator's footnotes in Nevernight, so either they grew on me after appreciating the story then or they are slightly less in Godsgrave ...more

Artwork was beautiful but it was all over the place. I was confused most of the time and felt there was no depth at all to any of the story or characters. Plus the first page has a rabbit having his head shot off (the dead skeleton rabbit then narrat ...more

The Golem And The Jinni is a brilliantly told and well-written story steeped in Yiddish and Middle Eastern folklore. Set in the historical setting of 1800's New York, the magic woven into this story is beautiful. I was captivated from start to finish ...more

Admittedly, the fault is mine, but this story was completely different from what I thought it would be. Barely about demons and their smoke/essence, this was a story somewhat about the people who trade in the illegal sale of demon smoke (only one POV
