The Key by Sara B. Elfgren & Mats Strandberg

*Warning: Contains spoilers for previous books in the series* Having thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the series, I was pleased to return to Engelsfors for the final book by Sara B Elfgren and Mats Strandberg, The Key. After the shocking conclusion to book two, the Chosen Ones have dwindled to four members out of seven, leaving their circle with some devastating gaps. Anna-Karin, Minoo, Linnéa and Vanessa know that the apocalypse is approaching, but they still have no idea how to close the portal in Engelsfors, or even…

In the Shadow of Blackbirds

Although I had wanted to read In the Shadow of Blackbirdssince I saw it on a blog somewhere, I really didn’t know what to expect when I opened it. The synopsis is intriguing but it doesn’t give a whole lot away – which I came to see as a good thing the further I read. Mary Shelley Black lives in a time of upheaval and her personal life isn’t any less hectic; her mother isn’t around, her father has been imprisoned as a traitor, and her sweetheart, Stephen, has left to…

Antigoddess

I absolutely adored Kendare Blake’s series, Anna Dressed in Blood, so when I found out she was writing a new series based around the Greek gods, I knew I had to get my hands on Antigoddess, the first in the Goddess War series. The book alternates perspective between goddess Athena and her brother, Hermes, and the everyday life of teenager, Cassandra, and her boyfriend, Aidan. Both Athena and Hermes are dying slowly, as Athena’s body is slowly becoming filled with feathers whilst Hermes’ is diminishing and leaving him bony and…

REVIEW: The Farm by Emily McKay

The Farm

The Farm by Emily McKay takes the dystopian genre and runs with it, telling the tale of twins, Lily and Mel, as they try to escape from the Farm. The book begins with Lily and Mel having been residents at the Farm for six months, since the Ticks took over America and began killing humans by drinking their blood. No-one knows quite how the Ticks grew to be so powerful, but the Farms function almost like a boarding school, with the teenagers forced to stick to strict routines. Part of…

She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick cover

I know when I open a book by Marcus Sedgwick that I’ll be sucked straight in to his masterful prose style, and it was no different with She Is Not Invisible. The book begins by delving straight into the action, with sixteen-year-old Laureth Peak having somewhat abducted her seven-year-old brother, Benjamin, to board a plane from London to New York. She has used their mum’s credit card to book the flight, and withdrawn cash to use when they get there, all with the aim of tracking down their father. Their…

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo cover

*Warning: Contains spoilers for previous books in the series* Siege and Storm left heroine Alina Starkov hunting for the final amplifier of Morozova, and the hunt for the legendary firebird is most definitely on in Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo, the concluding book of the Grisha trilogy. Weakened at the hands of the Darkling, Alina and what remains of her army are recovering from their injuries in the Apparat’s underground tunnels, surrounded by the fanatics who worship her as ‘Sankta Alina’. Determined not to remain in the Apparat’s clutches…

Resurrection by Amy Carol Reeves cover

*Contains spoilers for the previous books* Concluding the Ripper series, Resurrection by Amy Carol Reeves takes place immediately after the events of book two, leading in to the final hunt for the ruthless Max Bartlett. The hunt is on for the last member of the Conclave, as the grave robberies that began in book two are reaching new heights, with the dead being reanimated and launching attacks on Abbie, William and Simon. There is little chance for her to continue her hospital studies in such circumstances, with all focus set…
