The Shattering by Karen Healey

After his death, Janna comes to Keri with the notion that it […]

Angelfall is a story that puts you right into the middle of the action from the very first page. The world is shattered, destroyed when the angels swooped down. Millions […]

The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan

After reading Unspoken, which I really enjoyed, I was determined to go back and read Sarah Rees Brennan’s earlier trilogy, starting with The Demon’s Lexicon.

Along with his elder brother Alan, Nick has held the household together after the death […]
