Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Raybearer was my first read of 2021 and I couldn't have picked a better book to start the year. After my passion for reading was dwindling towards the end of 2020 Ifueko has absolutely blown me away. Nothing is more important than loyalty. But what if you’ve sworn to protect the one you were born… Continue reading Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Review: The Call of the Bone Ships by RJ Barker

A delightful coincidence lead me to pick up The Bone Ships. It was the first book I received in a bespoke book subscription I purchased and the blurb on the back of the book had me interested. Cut to a few months later, and I get approved for the second book in the trilogy on Netgalley. I decided to dive into this series and read the first two books close together.

I don't know what else can indicate the incredible caliber of these books, but I will do my best to share my… Continue reading Series Review: Broken Earth Trilogy

Review: Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

In 2020 I tried Mark Lawrence's first trilogy, following a psychotic young man as he tries to reclaim his throne. Or at least that is what I think the plot was, because the book really didn't work for me. I was determined to love Red Sister, and the glowing reviews all over Goodreads indicated that I had a good chance.
