A Shiver of Light

Sep 17, 2015 by

3 Stars, borrow it. Self Purchase, Kindle Edition This book is slow moving. Parts are very repetitive of other books. However, that being said, I’m still curious to know what is going on with everyone.  At the beginning of the book, Meredith gives birth and we are introduced to the children. It takes too many chapters for them to get out of the hospital though. The plot is almost non existent. Basically Meredith and her men move from room to room through the mansion and in each room some minor thing happens.   Finally, at the end (almost literally at 90%) a HUGE thing happens (which i won’t ruin for you) that makes it worth finishing the book. Normally, I give books I like either 4 or 5’s. I don’t give as many 3’s because...

Rat Queens #12

Sep 16, 2015 by

3.5 Stars, buy it Self Purchase, Comixology This definitely wasn’t my favorite Rat Queens issue.  We do find out that most of the girls have a secret they are hiding from the others.   A mysterious person/creature is after Hannah. The girls have to flee and are collapsing in the snow and there the issue ends. This definitely was not a fantastic issue. There was one or two funny moments, but for the most part this was pretty unexciting to me.  However, because I love this comic so much, I’m still going to recommend buying the issue. I’m just hoping the next issue is a bit better. Description (Comixology): Along the deadly mountain trail leading to Mage University, Hannah stumbles across an old friend from an old life. The mysterious figure knows a secret past...

Gotham Academy #10

Sep 15, 2015 by

SPOLIERs   4 Stars, Buy it   Self Purchase, Comixology   Olive and some other kids join the school play to investigate the school ghost, who might be Olive’s mother.  Maps feels left out when she discovers Olive didn’t tell her she thought the ghost was Olive’s mother. Olive is attacked while on stage.  Turns out Katherine, roommate of one of the girls, is the one who has caused all the problems with the school play. Then Katherine turns out to be part of Clayface (yes, from Batman). It has a twist at the ending which I won’t give away but of course it makes one want to read the next issue now.   Still totally adore Maps. Still really like Olive. Still really like the series. This was  a good to – very...

Elves #1: The Crystal of the Blue Elves 1/2...

Sep 9, 2015 by

4 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Comixology I really loved the art in this. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked the story or not but by the end, I really wanted to see what was next.  I felt like you were kind of thrown into the middle of the story without much background. The numbering is a bit weird, but I suspect it’s because it’s a foreign comic. I will be interested to see where this might go. Description (Comixology): The Blue Elves of Ennlya, a small port town of Nordrenn, have been murdered!Lanawyn, a Blue Elf, and Turin, her human ally, set out to discover who is responsible. The trail they uncover leads back to a clan of Yrlans – Northern men who hate Elves.At the same time, Vaalann, a young...

Assasin’s Apprentice

Sep 9, 2015 by

4.5 Stars, Buy it I won this paperback via goodreads. This book really pulls you in and keeps you there.  This is the story of Fitz, a prince’s bastard child. Fitz is basically raised by the Prince’s stable person (Burrich). And while at first you don’t really like Burrich, toward the end of the book things happen that make you really happy that he turns out to be a great person.  Fitz is being raised to be an Assassin’s apprentice and this book marks the first part of his life. (I’m hoping the second and third in this trilogy continue Fitz’s story). Fitz of course has ups and downs, but fortunately, most of the plot does not prove to be anxiety provoking for me.  My favorite thing about Fitz is his love of animals...
