In Every Generation by Kendare Blake

Rating: 4 out of 5.

“Into every generation, there is a Chosen One. One girl in all the world. She alone will wield the strength and skill to stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. She is the Slayer.”

3.5 stars rounded up to 4

Let me preface this review by saying that I am a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. HUGE. As in I own the entire series on DVD (yeah, remember those old things?) and routinely play them in the background while I’m cleaning, getting ready for the day or to go out, or when I want comfortable coziness. I love all things Buffyverse. Sooooo, when I hear of anything related to Buffy, I leap. That is what I did when I got a chance to read this book. And because I’m such a fan, I will both giddily gush with excitement, and be dramatically picky, about all new things “Buffy” in this review.

Fate’s Ransom (The First Argentines #4) by Jeff Wheeler

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is the final book in an exciting, action-packed YA Fantasy series and does not disappoint. Jon-Landon has ascended to the throne and wears the hollow crown. His reign is as bad as Ransom thought it would be. The new King is petty and cruel and makes his hatred of Ransom clear to all. In fact, he goes out of his way to humiliate Ransom in an effort to get him to do something for which he can be deemed a traitor and thereby killed.

A Beautifully Foolish Endeaver (The Carls #2) by Hank Green

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I loved the first book and was very excited when the sequel came out, but this one was not as captivating. It’s well-written but it didn’t grab my attention as much as the first book and I didn’t like the story as much.

This is the second book in the exciting “Warrior Bards” book series. There is plenty of action, intrigue and suspense in this riveting book. I couldn’t put it down, and even though it’s 512 pages, I read it in 3 days. I cannot WAIT to see what happens next! Continue reading “A Dance with Fate (Warrior Bards #2) by Juliet Marillier”

Mayhem by Estelle Laure – Blog Tour

 

Mayhem_blogtourbanner_coming soon

3 stars

This is a fun YA fantasy book that is marketed as being “inspired” by the movie The Lost Boys. It’s a quick and easy read, however the book follows much too closely the the movie and doesn’t contain many original concepts. (It is also mentioned that the book is inspired by the movie The Craft, but I don’t really see it). Continue reading “Mayhem by Estelle Laure – Blog Tour”

Broken Veil (Harbinger #5) by Jeff Wheeler

4 stars

This is a satisfying ending to a good YA Fantasy series. Most of the storylines are wrapped up, and there is a juicy cliffhanger that is surely a hint for a new series. Continue reading “Broken Veil (Harbinger #5) by Jeff Wheeler”
