The Bright and Breaking Sea by Chloe Neill

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I really enjoyed this first book in a new fantasy series. It’s a quick and easy read, and there is plenty of action, magic, fighting, fast ships and has just a hint of romance.

The Rage of Dragons (The Burning #1) by Evan Winter

Rating: 4 out of 5.

4.5 stars.

Wow. This is a fantastic first book in an exciting new African-inspired epic fantasy series. The book starts off slowly but quickly picks up steam and doesn’t let up. There a good amount of worldbuilding and plenty of action. Add in good character development and complicated relationships, and you have a winner.

Consolation (Paul Hirschhausen #3) by Garry Disher

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is an ok mystery set in Australia. The story moves slowly and there are irrelevant storylines that detract from the main mystery. This is the third book in the series, but it’s a stand alone mystery so you can read this book without having read the other two.

Little Cruelties by Liz Nugent

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Ugh. This book was really hard to read and I was so glad when I finished. It’s a depressing mystery/thriller about a dysfunctional family of selfish, narcissistic people. None of the characters had any redeeming qualities.
