Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Falling Kingdoms. I was expecting a novel that was somewhat Game of Thrones-lite but instead the storyline was fairly complex and the setting, although not overly original, was interesting and richly detailed. The story takes place across three very different kingdoms: Limeros, Paelsia and Auranos. Limeros, the Northern kingdom, is ruled by a tyrannical King who instills fear in the populace […]

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Shades of Earth is the final installment in the Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis and it is definitely my favourite.

This is the story of 16 year-old Devan. Devan is sent to live with her mother following the death […]

The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna

This book left me speechless – in a good way. The Lost Girl is the debut novel of Sangu Mandanna and it is an outstandingly excellent read. I just didn’t want it to finish. I love science fiction/fantasy and ya so I always look forward to any new release which encompass these genres. Eva is an ‘echo’ a copy of a girl called Amarra, a young girl who lives in […]
