THOUGH BOOK REVIEWING is a hobby, it’s important for me to stay on top of the latest releases. I’ve been following Kat Ross’s career since The Midnight Sea The Midnight SeaThe Midnight Sea swept me off my feet. Each book since has continued to dazzle me in a completely wonderful way. Her newest release, Monstrum, is her best book yet! This story is rich and haunting, with a potent kind of magic that’s barely contained, and an incredible cast of indomitable and morally complex characters.

I’m so happy that Darius and Nazafareen are finally together for an entire book. Nazafareen and Darius are off to the Isles of the Marakai to seek out the wise woman Sakhet-ra-katme in the hopes of restoring Nazafareen’s loss memory and to discover the guarded secret of the talismans. But another is searching too. Born in the brutal prison of the Kiln, Nico finally escapes and plans to use the talismans to free his people and their deranged king.

I was so captivated by the rich backstory of the Vatras. Nico has a dark side and is guilty of some pretty terrible things, yet I doubt (hope) that he is not a true antagonist. The insight that we get into his history illuminates a soft and vulnerable side that helps explain his actions. He’s villainous but at times shows traits of heroism; he’s filled with hatred but shows an unwavering love for his brother. It’s hard to dislike him and I look forward to seeing where Ms. Kat takes him.

To say that I’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg in this review is an understatement. I don’t want to give away too much. There are many satisfying answers in this third book, with plenty of new mysteries for the next installment. One thing is for certain, Ms. Kat has completely outdone herself with her fierce imagination and storytelling prowess. I felt that she’s reached deep inside soul to to give us Monstrum--a dark and potent fantasy.

{Thank you Kat Ross and Acorn Publishing for kindly giving me this book free of charge, which does not influence my review.}
King Henry IV, Part 1 by William Shakespeare
"While William Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1 is a different experience than Richard II, it is a fantastic play! The action picks up shortly after the conclusion of Richard II (after Bolingbroke has deposed the now dead Richard and become King Henr..." Read more of this review »
The Grey Bastards by Jonathan  French
"Jonathan French’s The Grey Bastards is an entertaining, immersive and page-turning adventure! Our heroes are crass, foul-mouthed and brave. This is what you might expect from a half orc, but we don’t generally see half orcs (or ‘monsters’ of any s..." Read more of this review »
