The Silvered Serpents by: Roshani Chokshi

I read the Gilded Wolves recently and loved it. The twists and turns, the characters, everything. When I got my hands on this I tore into it and it was amazing. The characters are so marvellously flawed, so wonderful and human. The plot was fast paced, the world building excellent, and there were plenty of plot twists. I truly loved everything about this book and I hate that I have to wait so long for the next one now. I definitely am enjoying that a lot more authors are sharing their stories through different character’s viewpoints, I find it really enriches the story when you can read through the eyes of the different characters. I absolutely cannot wait until the third book! Now I need to go back and read her other series that I haven’t read.

Ruthless God’s By: Emily A. Duncan

I read the first book a little while ago and adored it and was fortunate enough to get a chance to read Ruthless Gods early through Netgalley. Let me just say, that this book blew me away. I stayed up very late reading it and I truly did not want to stop reading. The story takes place very shortly after the events of Wicked Saints and the action keeps coming. The characters are wonderfully done and literally everyone has an ulterior motive, which keeps you guessing about what will happen until the very end. Slight warning though, for anyone made uncomfortable by blood or eye horror, this book does get a bit gruesome, but its brilliantly done. The dark, gritty atmosphere was wonderfully written and I adored reading about this world. I can’t wait until the third book! I will definitely be buying a copy of this book on release and recommending it to all my reader friends. If you love dark fantasy, you will love this. Also there is a kick-ass heroine and the right amount of romance. Loved this book and it guaranteed that I will be reading everything this author writes.

Wicked Saints By: Emily A. Duncan

So I really didn’t know what to expect with this book. The reviews were mixed, but it sounded interesting so I gave it a shot. And wowee am I glad I did. This book had all of the feels. At first I thought it was a neat concept, and then I noticed it was very bloody, which doesn’t bother me really. Then it just took off and I was completely hooked in. I adored the characters, completely flawed as they were. There was action, suspense, romance. The gothic atmosphere was amazingly done and the fantasy aspect was very interesting. All in all, I really loved this book and it kept me reading way into the night. Very much looking forward to the sequel.

The Lady Rogue By: Jenn Bennet

This story snagged me by the cover and the title. Then it absolutely snagged me by the description. YA mystery/fantasy that revolves around travel and Dracula in Transylvania? Yes please. This book was pure escapism at its finest. A book you pick up and just enjoy the ride. I loved Theodora and Huck and all of the supporting characters. This book was filled with humor, sadness, and even though it did get a bit dark at times, hope. Also just the right amount of romance. I really enjoyed this book and I’m hoping it’s going to become a series. I will definitely read more from this author.

Crown of Coral and Pearl By: Mara Rutherford

Firstly, the cover is lovely as is the title. I was intrigued right away and then even more so when I read the description. And I am truly glad I read this one! I was hooked immediately by the characters and the setting. The dynamic between the sisters was wonderfully done and you could really feel their love for each other. The setting was beautifully described, the sun, the heat, the saltiness of the ocean. It was all perfect. It doesn’t take long for the story to really pick up, either, and once it did it was impossible to put down. The story takes a darker turn, but it is well worth the read. Nor is an amazing and strong main character and I liked her a lot. The only thing about this book was that I found the ending to be rather abrupt and felt it could have been fleshed out a bit more, but otherwise this was just a great read! Highly recommend.

Hardcover

A Sorcery of Thorns by: Margaret Rogerson

I loved this. I loved this so much. I had previously read An Enchantment of Ravens and enjoyed that greatly, but this book was so much more. A book about sorcery, libraries and magical books. Did I mention magical books? This book is a fantasy and book-lover’s dream. It at once had mystery, fantasy, a lovely romance and just the right amount of suspense. Also Silas. He was amazing. Such a well done character. All the characters were well done, but he truly stood out and was extremely well written I enjoyed this book so much. I am definitely going to buy myself a copy when it is released. I would also buy this for friends as a gift ’cause I feel like anyone that loves books and magic would adore this book as much as I did.

Sorcery of Thorns

Dark Shores by: Danielle L. Jensen

Ive read Danielle Jensen’s Malediction series and I adored it. She has such a way with words and world building. I was very excited to see her releasing another magical series, but this time involving pirates! I was not let down at all. The main character is a wonderful badass and I loved her. She is strong but still human. The book was paced perfectly and the characters were amazing. The villains were extremely detestable and the plot was great. I ripped through this one and am excited for more from this author!
