The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

follow url To state I was excited to read ‘The Cruel Prince’ by Holly Black would be a gross understatement to say the least. I had previously read ‘The Darkest Part of the Forest’ and had completely and utterly fallen in love with the world and its characters. ‘The Cruel Prince’ is set in the same world.

The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather

http://tennisclubpaimpol.fr/bisese/7464 The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather is a rare beast indeed.

She draws him over and over […]

The only other interpretation of this story that I have read was Juliet Marillier’s excellent Wildwood Dancing, which is a personal favourite. That may be the reason I put off reading this one for so long, fearing […]

Review: Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

source url I absolutely adored Storm. I had seen many glowing, overwhelmingly positive reviews for this series but for some reason had never gotten around to reading it even though it looked like something I would really enjoy (I am a sucker for a good paranormal tale with well-drawn, intriguing characters). I stumbled across the first book and on a whim decided to purchase and read it. I wondered if it would live […]
