Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier

Shadowfell is the first book in a new YA series by Juliet Marillier and although it was not quite as magical an experience as her earlier Sevenwaters series, it did not disappoint. This is the story of Neryn, a young girl with certain ‘canny’ gifts that have made her a target. She has had to keep hidden, never staying long in any one place for fear of discovery. She has heard of […]

Spark by Brigid Kemmerer

I absolutely loved Storm, the debut novel of Brigid Kemmerer and the first book in this series, but I have to say I think I loved Spark even more. Spark is Gabriel’s story. Gabriel is the hot-headed older brother of Chris Merrick, one of the main characters in the first book. He is fiery, quick-tempered, cocky and aggressive. He doesn’t think before he speaks. His twin brother Nick is the ‘good’ twin whilst Gabriel is […]

He is an Elemental and […]

The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff

It wasn’t the easiest read, but it was definitely one of the most rewarding. I was completely captivated from beginning to end. It is the story of a girl called Daphne. Daphne is the daughter of Lucifer and Lilith and she lives in Pandemonium, a city in […]

Never to Sleep by Rachel Vincent

I really didn’t expect to enjoy this novella very much as Sophie has never been a character I have particularly taken to. She has always appeared to be an archetypal ‘mean girl’, with little or no redeeming features. Her antagonistic relationship with her cousin Kaylee has never endeared her to me. However, I had to read this given what a huge fan of this series I have become. I am […]
