Review: Gilded

Review: Gilded

I was very disappointed by Gilded. I was excited to read a book that took place in Seoul, being a huge fan of all things Korean. Though Farley does a good job of immersing the reader in Korean culture through main character Jae Hwa, who has just moved there from L.A., her writing is often immature and nonsensical. Plus, Jae Hwa, who is supposed to be a kickass heroine, complete with a black belt in […]

Review: Acorna

Review: Acorna

I first grew interested in Anne McCaffrey’s and Margaret Ball’s Acorna when I was a young girl. I was captured by the cover of a pretty silver haired girl with a horn and hooves. But this book unfortunately proved the saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” right. My attempt to read the book failed and I ended up getting rid of it. Fast forward to present day and I decided to give the […]

An assassin stormed down the hallways of a palace with orders to murder the king in the most noticeable way possible. With a rare and legendary sword called a Shardblade in his hand, the assassin—cutting through both walls and men alike—made […]

She appears to do this almost by sheer willpower or luck. However in The High King’s Tomb, Karrigan is forced to confront the reality that she […]

Review: First Rider’s Call

Review: First Rider’s Call

First Rider’s Call was a 4.5 stars book for me. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the sequel to Kristen Britain’s The Green Rider, it wasn’t quite as fast paced as its predecessor. This isn’t to say that the novel doesn’t start with a bang—it does. Readers are hooked from the onset, as main character Karrigan G’ladheon and other Green Riders on assignment are devastated by an attack from a horrific evil that hasn’t been seen in […]
