Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J Maas

A COURT OF MIST AND FURYFeyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

My Review:

HOLY CRAPOLA. OH MY GOSH. I don’t even know how to write this review. For real, I’m in such mourning right now. I honestly just picked up the book and reread the whole thing again right after finishing it. How the heck am I supposed to wait until 2017 to read the third book. How is that a possibility?! What was I thinking not waiting for all the books to be released for I started reading this series?! WHAT WAS I THINKING?! Seriously, I need some support right now. My heart is absolutely shattered that I’ve already finished this book.

Being totally honest, I hated like the first 70ish pages of this book. Let me try and explain without giving away any spoilers. Okay: I HATED what was done with some of the characters. While that opinion never changed throughout the book, it did finally reach a point where it kind of just moved on and I wasn’t stuck in that rut anymore. And once it gets through that part, it’s smooth sailing from there. Seriously, whenever I was reading this book, I was DEVOURING it. I couldn’t even function properly when I was away from it. I would be away from the house, and I would just turn to whomever and say “I miss my book so much right now.” For real, I’m a big gooey pile of a mess right now. My heart cannot take this one bit!

If you thought that A Court of Thorns and Roses was brilliant, then you haven’t even started to realize the true definition of brilliance. The detail, the action, the romance, the character. HOLY. MOLY. Everything was so spot on and well written. This was like Harry Potter on crack. I need like ten more of these books RIGHT NOW.

There are several new characters introduced in this second book, and I loved every. single. one. of. them. Usually, there’s a least one new character that you really can’t stand. Nope. I’ll take them all again. Everyone was so fantastic and spot on. I LOVED THEM ALL!

And Rhys. OMG. I’m 100% team Rhys. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. I can’t even. THOSE SCENES. Who else is team Rhys!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?

And that ending?!!?!? OH MY LANTA! I can’t even. For real. I need to shut my mouth right now before I spoil anything for ya’ll.

Waiting on Wednesday #106

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week the novel I am anxiously awaiting for is….


The first in a thrilling new four-book fantasy series from New York Times bestselling author Cinda Williams Chima, set in the same world as her beloved Seven Realms series, a generation later

Adrian sul’Han, known as Ash, is a trained healer with a powerful gift of magic—and a thirst for revenge. Ash is forced into hiding after a series of murders throws the queendom into chaos. Now Ash is closer than he’s ever been to killing the man responsible, the cruel king of Arden. As a healer, can Ash use his powers not to save a life but to take it?

Abandoned at birth, Jenna Bandelow was told that the mysterious magemark on the back of her neck would make her a target. But when the King’s Guard launches a relentless search for a girl with a mark like hers, Jenna assumes that it has more to do with her role as a saboteur than any birth-based curse. Though Jenna doesn’t know why she’s being hunted, she knows that she can’t get caught.

Eventually, Ash’s and Jenna’s paths will collide in Arden. Thrown together by chance and joined by their hatred of the king, they will come to rescue each other in ways they cannot yet imagine.

Set in the world of the acclaimed Seven Realms series a generation later, this is a thrilling story of dark magic, chilling threats, and two unforgettable characters walking a knife-sharp line between life and death.


Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

To be Released on April 5th by HarperCollins.


I’m not sure if we’ve already featured Flamecaster as a WOW, but I don’t care. I am SO EXCITED for this book. I have heard, though, that you need to have read all of the Seven Realms books before you read this. So, of course, I already have a copy of this but am unable to start it until I convince myself to read the last Seven Realms book, because I don’t want to be spoiled. It’s SO HARD, though, because I know the last Seven Realms book is probably going to make me cry…..It’s also been a long time since I’ve read books 1, 2, & 3…… I’m so excited for this one, though! I’m probably going to start book 4 this month if I get some extra free time! (laughs hysterically at that thought!)


Make sure you go read EVERYTHING by Cinda Williams Chima! Seriously…..she never disappoints!

The Sorcerer Heir (The Heir Chronicles #5) by Cinda Williams Chima

The Sorcerer HeirThe delicate peace between Wizards and the underguilds (Warriors, Seers, Enchanters, and Sorcerers) still holds by the thinnest of threads, but powerful forces inside and outside the guilds threaten to sever it completely.

Emma and Jonah are at the center of it all. Brought together by their shared history, mutual attraction, and a belief in the magic of music, they now stand to be torn apart by new wounds and old betrayals. As they struggle to rebuild their trust in each other, Emma and Jonah must also find a way to clear their names as the prime suspects in a series of vicious murders. It seems more and more likely that the answers they need lie buried in the tragedies of the past. The question is whether they can survive long enough to unearth them. 

Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.

The Wizard Heir 
* “Chima uses her pen like a wand and crafts a wonderfully rich web of magic, while thankfully leaving some dangling threads for subsequent tales.” –VOYA (starred review)

“Chima continues to excel at building tension and populating her well-told tales with new and returning characters we want to know better.” –Booklist


My Review:

I LOVED this book! There was nothing even remotely negative to say about it. The character were amazing; the plot line was off the charts; the magic was even more magical that could be expected. Then again, I never have anything negative to say about any of Cinda Williams Chima’s works. Just…amazing. I still haven’t even recovered from it.

The only thing that slightly confused me (and it was my own fault) was that I had some confusion over some of the characters who appeared in the first three books. Realistically, I should have reread them before I read books 4 and 5 (since there was such a long gap between them) but…I didn’t. I would definitely recommend that fans of this series (or any reader in general) read or reread the first 3 books before moving on to 4 and 5. Simply for your own sanity.

I didn’t understand how this was the finale to the Heir series. I had thought and expected that there would be at least one more book. Not only do I want to read more from this series, but I also thought that the ending wasn’t finished. There’s a lot that still wasn’t covered or was just kind of left open ended. Also, being such a fan of Emma and Jonah, I expected more from their relationship at the end of the series. So, I’m pretty disappointed that this is the finale (even though it was amazing!) Hopefully, Chima changes her mind down the road and continues the Heir series.

There were so many twists and turns that I didn’t see coming in this book. I had moments where my mouth was literally hanging open and I was like whaaaaat just happened?! There was never a dull moment. I felt that the action just kept right on pumping and I was entertained (and in love) the whole read through.

There’s absolutely nothing negative that I can say about this book. Cinda Williams Chima is one of my all time favorite authors, and I will promote everything that she writes with nothing but the highest regards. If you haven’t read any of her works yet, then I highly recommend that you do so! This was just so good!!!

The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1) by Mary E. Pearson

The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1)In this timeless new trilogy about love and sacrifice, a princess must find her place in a reborn world.

In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.

On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assasin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.


I decided to check out The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson after hearing that this book was the next best historical fantasy series and after also hearing a few comparisons to The Winner’s Curse, which has been my absolute favorite read of 2014 so far. So obviously, I had to give it a chance!

Unfortunately, it ended up not really being my cup of tea. This is such a hard review to do because I’m 100% positive that this book is going to have A TON of fans and that people are going to fall in love with Lia and her story. But I wasn’t one of those people, sadly. I ended up DNF-ing about halfway through, which I hated to do because I could tell it was an awesome story, but there were too many things that bothered me.

I guess for me, the biggest problem that I had was with the main character herself, Lia. She’s a princess and as is expected of her, she’s betrothed to the prince of a neighboring country in order to ensure safety and security for her kingdom (and her loved ones). However, Lia has apparently had enough of living a stifled life, so she decides to leave the prince at the altar and make a run for it with her maid servant to live amongst the commoners. This is hard for me because as a girl living in 2014, I can of course look at Lia’s situation and think, Oh my god, an arranged marriage sounds absolutely awful, I totally get why she ran away. But then thing is…this book ISN’T set in the 21st century. This is in a medieval time when this is a normal thing??? And Lia is the key to securing safety for her people and her family, but she basically just says “eff it!” and runs off in search of a simple life and true love, where she mouths off to random strangers and doesn’t give too much of a crap for how her family is dealing with the aftermath (even her brothers, who she claims to love SO much). I’m going to be honest, it disgusted me a little bit how selfish she was and I had a really hard time empathizing with her when it all blew up in her face. I was just kind of like…how did you not see this coming?

The second issue that I had was the romance. When Lia makes a run for it, two people come after her: the jilted prince she was supposed to marry, and an assassin from a neighboring kingdom ordered to kill her. She naturally goes for one of the guys, and I’m not going to say who but if you’ve read any YA I’m sure you can guess. And I was cool with her choice cause I was kind of digging that guy too, until he basically just loses his head after ONE encounter with her and turns into a sensitive pile of mush. WHICH IS FINE. Except it was totally out of character for this guy and happened waaaay too fast. And from there on, a huge chunk of the book was devoted to her romances with these two guys and not a whole lot else, other than her cheerily slaving away over peasant tasks. The guys were basically obsessed with her and seemed to pop up at literally EVERY opportunity to help her or save her or shoot her brooding looks. They were desperate, basically. And to be honest that’s not really my thing…I prefer a nice, slow build, personally.

HOWEVER, the writing was absolutely beautiful. As much as I wasn’t a fan of the story, I could definitely appreciate how gorgeous of a writer Mary Pearson is, oh my goodness. The scenes were perfectly described and I felt every character’s emotion so vividly. She is incredible and definitely someone to look out for. Even though I didn’t like this book, I’m 100% open to trying a future book.

All in all, I think a lot of people will like this book. If you’re a little (okay, a lot) cynical like me and not into cheesy romance/love triangles, then maybe you won’t. But I don’t think Mary Pearson has to worry cause I’m going to guess most people will eat this up. Definitely check it out!

Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy #1) – Danielle L. Jensen

Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.


My thoughts are mixed on this one. I had seen it on Netgalley a while back and wanted to give it a try, so I finally got myself a copy, but unfortunately wasn’t all that blown away by it. There were some definite positives to Stolen Songbird but there were also some parts that I found myself having a hard time getting past.

For starters, I was pretty hot and cold on the main character, Cécile. On one hand, she’s a young girl who thinks that she has her life figured out and knows that she wants to be a singer, only to find herself kidnapped on her way home and thrust into a secret society, where it turns out that she’s the key to breaking a super old curse. All things considered, she deals with this pretty realistically, complete with some freakouts and crying and general shock. She’s been taught that the people who have kidnapped her, aka trolls, are brutally cruel, and so she’s understandably pretty wary around them. But then it turns out that the guy who she is supposed to marry, the troll prince, is actually really gorgeous and not completely evil after all. And that’s when things start to take a turn for the worse. Not even halfway through the book, she’s already putting her trust in her kidnapper and most (not all, but most) fears are thrown to the wind. I get that the troll prince wasn’t all bad and that he actually had secretly good motives, but it all seemed a tiny bit Stockholm Syndrome-y to me with how fast she starts sympathizing with the people that ordered her entire life taken away. 

As for the prince, Tristan, he wasn’t really my favorite either. He was supposed to be snarky and cold, which he was, but he also ended up coming off a little pretentious sometimes, and kind of over the top. I’m aware that this was intentional, but he still rubbed me the wrong way. But don’t get me wrong – he had his moments where I caught myself swooning, cause he’s actually a big softy underneath all the asshole-ness.

I did enjoy the plot and the writing though! The whole concept of Trollus being this underground city trapped by a curse was fascinating, and I loved learning about their cruel society. The writing was really gorgeous too! My only complaint would be that some of the dialogue and scenes were written kind of strangely sometimes, and I occasionally had a hard time following the action. Other than that though, Danielle Jensen is definitely someone to keep an eye on!

Book of the Month: Interview with Kelley Armstrong

4fdd6f816b124ee595f6fb07a25a134eAs you all should know very well by now, I have a sick obsession with Kelley Armstrong. I just want to kidnap this lady and have her write Women of the Otherworld stories for me nonstop. Creepy? Sure. But I love her. She is, by far, my favorite author in the entire world, and I want each and every one of you to know about her, her books, her TV show, her everything. If you haven’t read her stuff before, do so. If you don’t plan to…don’t even bother talking to me. I’m SO excited to be hosting her new YA fantasy, Sea of Shadows, as our book of the month this April. Seas of Shadows was AMAZING. I didn’t even know that she could write high fantasy….but oh my goodness. I loved it!


7581Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. All efforts to make her produce “normal” stories failed.

Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She’s the author of the NYT-bestselling “Women of the Otherworld” paranormal suspense series and “Darkest Powers” young adult urban fantasy trilogy, as well as the Nadia Stafford crime series. Armstrong lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.


Chocolate or Vanilla?

Chocolate. The darker the better.

Cats or Dogs?

Can’t pick. I have both and love both for their individual traits.

Favorite television show?


Hardcopies or Ecopies?

Hardcopies. I have an e-reader for travel, but it doesn’t quite feel like reading.

Favorite series of all time?

Harry Potter.

Celebrity Crush?

None. Weird, I know, but I don’t ever think that way about celebs. I appreciate them for their acting or their singing etc. The last crush of that sort I had was when I was 10. Shaun Cassidy. Don’t ask.

Drink of choice?


Can you tell us about your book, Sea of Shadows, in 15 words or less?

Twin girls guard the Forest of the Dead, where convicts are exiled. Things go wrong.

This is your first time doing high fantasy. How much more difficult was it than the rest of your works?

I’ve read high fantasy since I was a teen, so this is the book I’ve always wanted to write. The fun part was the research—it’s based on medieval Japan. The tough part was toning down my very contemporary voice. I had to accept that it would still sound somewhat contemporary while making every effort to adjust my voice.

How long did it take you to write Sea of Shadows?

The first draft took about six months. Then I spent over a year editing it (while working on other projects.) The first in a new series always requires the most work.

What was your favorite scene to write?

The thunder hawk fight. There are two sections to it. The first was great action-packed adventure. The second started with a “hiding in the cave” scene that had some of my favorite character work and interplay.

What was the hardest scene to edit out?

As I mentioned, the thunder hawk scene has two sections. They think they’ve escaped it…and they haven’t. Between those sections the two characters were walking and talking and there was some interplay there that I really liked. However, it was too much time between those action scenes, which felt jarring. So most of it got cut.

What is one of your favorite quotes from SOS?

That’s tough when it’s been half a year since I last read it. I always tell myself I need to make a note of quotes when I’m doing my proofs. I mentioned the thunder hawk scene above, so I’ll give a line from it. Not a great one, but it’ll do. “It was a shame to waste such a face and physique on such a surly—and, yes, exceedingly difficult—boy.”

The ending…oh my goodness! That ending! Is there anything you can tell us about the next book?!

It picks up a few days after that ending. Moria is, not surprisingly, growing frustrated with what she perceives as a slow response on 17236366the part of the emperor and decides to take action herself, which launches them into their next adventure.

Do you think that you would survive in the world you created in SOS?

I think I could. It’s not a dystopian society. The medieval aspects would definitely take some getting used to, but it would be interesting. I’m not sure I’d care to live there, but I’d visit.

Are we going to see some steamy scenes between Moria and Gavril or Ashyn and Ronan in the next book?

One of the problems with my YA is that I throw my characters into so much action and adventure that there’s really not a lot of time for steamy make-out scenes. They’re too busy trying to stay alive! There are a couple of those in Empire of Night. There’s more steamy stuff in the third book, where I go beyond where I have previously in YA. That’s all I’ll say 

Who was your favorite character to write about in SOS?

Moria. My favourites are rarely the narrators, because I’m writing from their point of view. But with this book, it’s dual POV and third-person, so I was able to step back a little and see and develop the narrators from more angles. I love Ashyn, but Moria wins in this contest, which may be part of the reason Ashyn feels overshadowed by her sister. Poor kid. I think, though, that I relate to Ashyn a little better, which means the connection there is too close to say I also like her better.

Are you currently working on anything else?

Tons! I’m writing the third in this trilogy now. I just finished the third in the Cainsville series and the third in the Blackwell Pages trilogy. I still have a few Otherworld projects on the go, due out late this year (an anthology, a graphic novella and a prose novella.) I’m also part of a Canadian-based project with seven authors writing from a shared premise, which gave me the chance to write a YA set in Quebec in the sixties—a real departure from my usual work.

What is the best book you’ve read recently?

Good question! I’ve been in editing hell, as happens every winter—I have three books on similar production schedules. So I haven’t read anything other than my own work in a while. A pre-crunch favourite of mine was Robin Wasserman’s The Waking Dark. Great Stephen-King-style horror in a YA, and as you might guess from Sea of Shadows, I’m a horror buff.

Is there anything else you’d like to say before you go?

Just thank-you for the interview. I hope readers will give Sea of Shadows a shot. HarperCollins will post a massive sneak peek—as they always do—so readers can check that out free.


I would just like to say that I am super proud of myself for not hounding KA about The Women of the Otherworld series or the Bitten TV show. It took all my self restraint. Go me!

Sea of Shadows (Age of Legends #1) – Kelley Armstrong


17825750In the Forest of the Dead, where the empire’s worst criminals are exiled, twin sisters Moria and Ashyn are charged with a dangerous task. For they are the Keeper and the Seeker, and each year they must quiet the enraged souls of the damned.

Only this year, the souls will not be quieted.

Ambushed and separated by an ancient evil, the sisters’ journey to find each other sends them far from the only home they’ve ever known. Accompanied by a stubborn imperial guard and a dashing condemned thief, the girls cross a once-empty wasteland, now filled with reawakened monsters of legend, as they travel to warn the emperor. But a terrible secret awaits them at court—one that will alter the balance of their world forever.


Kelley Armstrong IS BACK! Seriously, I was starting to get a little worried. I didn’t like Omens. I liked the Darkness Rising series, but I wasn’t in LOVE with it. It’s not a secret that Kelley Armstrong is my number one favorite author. I adore her Darkest Powers series and her Women of the Otherworld series is absolutely amazing. If I could kidnap one author and keep them forever and ever and ever, it would be Kelley Armstrong. I was a little nervous that she was writing a high fantasy book. That’s not something she’s every done before. I LOVE high fantasy. LOVE IT. Sea of Shadows is probably one of my top favorite high fantasy books of all time. I absolutely adored it. Everyone needs to go read this book right now.

My rule with high fantasy is that I must plow through the first 100 pages no matter what. I will not allow myself to DNF a high fantasy book before the first 100 pages. Why? Because almost all high fantasy books have a horrifying first 100 pages. That’s because that time needs to be detail and history heavy. It can be very boring and just bland. That can be said for the first 100 pages of Sea of Shadows. I actually had a really difficult time pushing through the beginning of this one. It was a very tough start, and I was starting to worry that Armstrong was producing another book that I didn’t so much love. I actually think that it started to get amazing before page 100. I read an EARC on my Nook and the pages were a bit off, so it’s hard to tell you all exactly when it started to get amazing. It didn’t take all that long, though. When it starts to get good be prepared, because it will get REALLY GOOD!

The characters in Sea of Shadows were spot on. There wasn’t a single character that I didn’t like. And oh my goodness. The relationships in this book are HOT! There’s not even a damn steamy scene in this book and my blood pressure was hitting sky high levels. I don’t even know who I liked more, Moria and Gavril or Ashyn and Ronan. They were just so perfect! I have new boy book crushes. I can’t wait to read more about them in the second book.

Another thing that I loved about Sea of Shadows was the sister bond between Moria and Ashyn. You don’t see a lot of girl relationships in YA books. I found it to be refreshing for a change. While both girls had their own boy dramatics on the side, I really enjoyed reading about their sisterly bond and the connection that they had. I also loved the connection that each girl had with their individual animals. It was a nice change from just being all about the guy that most books have. Sea of Shadows had several different relationships that captured my heart.

The visuals in Sea of Shadows were perfection. I ended up sucking this book down in 2 days probably because I often forgot that I was reading a book. Seriously, the pictures in my head were like swapping bodies with one of the main characters and seeing everything that was going on in real life. I experienced so many different types of emotions in SOS. I jumped, I cried, I laughed, I giggled, I blushed…Oh my goodness. I just loved this book so much! I don’t know how to express it all into words!

And the ending. THE ENDING! Oh. My. GOSH. That ending! I didn’t see it coming. I was absolutely shocked. I’m horribly upset that I have to wait like probably another year for the second book. I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! That’s all! The ending is one of the most powerful endings that I have ever read. I felt so many emotions. I think I went on and on and on about it for days after I finished it. I was in mourning. I still am.

Overall, I LOVED this book. 5 freaking stars. And EVERYONE needs to go read it! And then they need to go read every single book that Kelley Armstrong has ever written because she is a flippin genius. Favorite author ever. I love her. Fans of Cinda Williams Chima are going to adore this book!
