Dare I say it?! Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop was better than Murder of Crows. Hide the children! Or, should I say it was as good but in so many different ways? I think I’ll say both. If I had to narrow down one of the main factors that made Vision in Silver so great I would have to point to three characters; Meg, Simon, and Grandfather Erebus. All three, whether in conjecture with each other or individually kept me so entranced with the story that I think I was becoming sick because I couldn’t function without reading Vision in Silver. What kind of magic is that?! Remember back when I said in my review of Murder of Crows that I underestimated the stupidity of the humans? (If not, go here so that we’re on the same page). Well, I did it again…sigh Being held captive within Lakeside because of their stupidity didn’t […]

Repeating the praise I gave Written in Red is not something I want to do, since Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop was an altogether different, yet similar, monster. Everything that made Written in Red so phenomenal carried over to Murder of Crows and it took this series to another level. Reading about a possible romance between Simon and Meg from the sneak peek in the back of Written in Red made me so excited and anxious! Once I finally closed the pages to that book and then picked up Murder of Crows from the library I got to thinking; could a romance between the main characters mess this series up by bringing unnecessary drama to its pages or would Anne Bishop be able to swing it and still weave a fantastic story? Since I don’t have a lot of luck with sequels I dived into Murder of Crows anyway, without a life jacket, and hoped for […]

The world of the Others was so complex, but un-overwhelming, which was something a shocking surprise seeing as Written in Red by Anne Bishop is the first book in a high fantasy series. Wow, wow, freaking wow! The author did such a superb job of explaining things within the fabric of the story. I was able to follow along without having to go back to certain parts of the story to refresh my memory on certain things. I’ll try to provide the gist of the Others without causing confusion and chaos; the humans are against the Others (Wolfgard, Sangunati, Elementals, Crowgard, Hawkgard, Owlgard, Beargard, Coyotegard, Panthergard, and etc.) and vice versa. It wasn’t until both Montgomery, a police officer transferred to Lakeside because he killed a human to save an Other, and Meg, a blood prophet who escaped her ‘owners,’ shows up at the Courtyard, that the once set in stone barriers […]

Wild Country by Anne Bishop

When news of Wild Country‘s release was announced I was sort of bummed out. I had so enjoyed reading about the slice of life from the characters in Lake Silence that I wanted to continue reading about them in the same way we were able to with the Lakeside Courtyard. But after reading some encouraging reviews from some readers that I trusted I became more receptive to reading Wild Country by Anne Bishop The disclaimer that the author placed before the story started really help set my mind on where exactly Wild Country fit in with the original portion of the series. Logically speaking, Wild Country should’ve come out before Lake Silence but I have a feeling that there’s a method to Anne Bishop’s madness. With the disclaimer notating that certain events will overlap with events that happened in Etched in Bone I felt more comfortable reading about these new […]

FCF #3 // Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews

FCF #3 // Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews

If you happen to follow me on any of my social media you will know how much I love me some Ilona Andrews. I’m currently listening to Burn for Me on audio right now (Mad Rogan … swoon!). So when I saw that they were releasing another new book – Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews – this year and it looked like this, I knew I had to feature it here on the blog. Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews Cover Breakdown 1. Galaxy (Galactic) Elements Have you ever gone on Pinterest and just searched for wallpapers for your phone, desktop, or tablet? Well I have and I always find myself gravitating towards the photos with the galaxies, or stars, or even just pictures of the Earth from space. So you can imagine how much Sweep of the Blade’s cover, with its galactic elements, is calling out […]
