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 […]

Storm by Brigid Kemmerer – mini review

Wow – Storm was an absolutely incredible read! I was blown away by how much I enjoyed this book! Storm focuses on two characters: Becca Chandler and Chris Merrick (and is narrated in dual, third-person POV). Here are the best bits: Becca is a strong female character (yay!) that has plenty of flaws that make her incredibly realistic. Chris is very different to most of his classmates. He is an Elemental and […]

This book is about Maeve, one of the daughters of Lord Sean of Sevenwaters, who was last seen in Child of the Prophecy. I really loved Maeve’s voice. She was prickly and definitely […]

Graveyard Child by M.L.N. Hanover

Graveyard Child is the fifth (and final?) installment in The Black Sun’s Daughter series. I rattled my way through the first four books last year and got swept up into the lives of Jayné Heller and her friends and fellow demon hunters. I have been eagerly awaiting this book after the ending of Killing Rites left off on such a pivotal cliffhanger. This book picks up pretty much where the last one ended with Jayné, […]

The Rising by Kelley Armstrong

The Rising, the concluding chapter of the Darkness Rising Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong, found its way into my mailbox yesterday. A nice surprise since it is not due out until 2nd April (must have got it early due to being the bank holiday weekend for Easter – yay!!). I have been eagerly anticipating its release so didn’t waste any time in setting about reading it. I was not disappointed. I […]
