Hello, new epic fantasy called Falling Kingdoms, by Morgan Rhodes! I am having a love/hate relationship with you right now, but love you more than I hate you… I could not imagine getting into ANOTHER series right now, although this series promises to have twisting plot lines with the vast array of characters you can’t help but relate to. There are royal families, peasants, sorceresses, and savages!
The story comes across as a simplified version of Lord of the Rings, with more heart-wrenching romances that appeal more to a female audiences. The …

The Golden Lily, by Richelle Mead, is the long-awaited second novel in the Bloodlines Series. I was left breathless by Sydney’s busy schedule, and a few angsty moments she has. I love this series, even more than the Vampire Academy Series… You will not be disappointed by the perilous positions the characters get themselves into!
The story continues to follow the life of Sydney Sage, an alchemist who’s current assignment is the protection of Jill Dragomir, a vampire princess. Sydney’s aversion to vampires is waning, she’s taken up dating, and we …

You know those ubiquitous YA novels where the teen heroine is inevitably pure at heart and just doesn’t see how great she really is? Yeah, this isn’t one of those books. But, that’s why I really liked it. The story centers around Nastasya (Nasty, for short) a 450-year-old immortal, who is careless, selfish, and emotionally disconnected from the world around her. In fact, some of the things she has done are downright detestable. That’s what makes her human to me, even though she is immortal. She has tons of flaws, …

Kallie’s Video Review
Ashes, by Ilsa J. Bick, is a 450 page haunting tale filled with delicious horror and frightening details. Bick has woven a story in which you fall in love with her characters and have no problem following them through a harrowing journey. The heroine, Alex, a girl who has honestly faced most everything you can imagine, begins the book on one very specific journey-a hard and emotional one. But after the Zap occurs, Alex’s journey becomes more than she bargained for as the world seems to be …
March’s Book of the Month is Kerstin Gier’s Ruby Red, a novel I think you all will love (or at least, I hope you do)! This one happens to be a timeslip novel, and takes place in the best city in the world, London (okay, I may be a bit biased there). Ruby Red is the first book in a trilogy, originally published in German, though it’s the only book in the series currently available in the US. Once you finish this book, you are so going to wish you …

Bitterblue is the companion novel to Kristin Cashore’s Graceling and Fire. Before I write more, you should know that it is paramount (in my opinion) that you read Graceling before Bitterblue. The structure of characters’ relationships and setting are based on a foundation built in Graceling. In Bitterblue, we read an intricately woven story that stands on Graceling‘s foundation and it’s strength holds these characters together when you think everything in their world should be crumbling!
I am extremely impressed with the maze of story lines that Cashore guides you through …
