REVIEW | The City of Dusk | Tara Sim | The Dark Gods #1

I absolutely devoured THE CITY OF DUSK in two days, which even I was impressed by considering it's a hell of a chonky book. I've been on a huge adult fantasy kick lately, and when I spotted this one in Waterstones I knew I had to have it. I really loved Tara Sims' SCAVENGE THE STARS series, and everything I heard about this book made me more excited for it. It held up to my hopes, and I already can't wait for the next book in this new series.

REVIEW | Dread Wood | Jennifer Killick

This was an unexpectedly fun romp of a thriller. I picked it up as a quick read to break up my other reads because I had several very heavy and complicated epic fantasies on the go, and ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting. DREAD WOOD was not what I expected, but honestly? It was better, and I can't wait to read the next book in this series and see what happens next. If this book is anything to go by, it will be surprising, spooky and so much fun.

REVIEW | We Can Never Leave This Place | Eric LaRocca

I stumbled across YOU'VE LOST A LOT OF BLOOD on twitter and bought the ebook on a whim. It was a total cover buy, because I'm a sucker for horror book covers that are a little... gross. I read it in one sitting, then immediately listened to the audiobook for THINGS HAVE GOTTEN WORSE SINCE WE LAST SPOKE and made Andee read it too so we could talk about it. So when Eric LaRocca asked for reviewers for WE CAN NEVER LEAVE THIS PLACE, I stopped dead and read the whole thing immediately.

REVIEW | The Mask of Mirrors | M.A. Carrick | Rooks & Rose #1

I picked up THE MASK OF MIRRORS in a 99p ebook sale because Alex told me that he liked it a lot. I didn't really know much about it, other than that I love Orbit fantasy a lot and I trust Alex's taste. It was kind of a revelation to me how much I enjoyed this book - especially considering that I dnf'd one of the co-author's other books. I really enjoyed the entire premise of this - especially when it went in completely a different direction than I expected.
