I like to think that I’m a fast reader. Generally the speed at which I read a book – assuming I have the time – reflects how much I’m enjoying it. And although I did enjoy this book, it was such a slow read. I have no idea why, but it just seemed to drag, even […]

**spoiler alert** Although this book is actually a sequel, I did not feel at all hindered by the fact that I hadn’t read the first one. It pretty much jumps straight into fast-paced action, which I really liked, as well as flowing smoothly. I did feel as though the laboratory seemed to lack a lot of procedures […]

**spoiler alert** I have to admit, when I started out reading this book, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to it. I’d just finished a load of sci-fi and fantasy and was very much in the mood for some more, and the blurb of this made me think it was going to be very depressing.Whilst Ruth […]

When I won this through Goodreads, I really looked forward to its arrival as fantasy is one of my favourite genres and this was the first fantasy novel I’d won. I have to say, the general plot – normal girl finds out she has a connection with another world and can travel between it and […]

This book generated some really interesting ideas – if you are brought up in a violent environment, does it lead you to become violent yourself? Despite his inner battles, realising how easily he could kill people, and his sociopathic tendencies, Jasper was a really likeable character. He was cocky, but not too much so, determined, […]

**spoiler alert** The Painted Man was a fantastic book. It builds up a world of lore and magic – and The Desert Spear builds so much more on top of it. Whereas The Painted Man followed several of the protagonists from a young age to the beginnings of adulthood, The Desert Spear covers a shorter period of time, apart from the first […]

**spoiler alert** After finishing Mass Effect 3, I really wanted to read some sci-fi. So I went down to my local library, and browsed the (rather pathetic) sci-fi and fantasy section. I came back with four fantasy books, and just one sci-fi. Luckily, one of the fantasy books was this one, because it was amazing. I […]

**spoiler alert**  I’m not entirely sure what to make of this book… As the POV switched so often, I didn’t feel any sort of attachment to any of the characters, so the deaths really didn’t mean much to me. I thought it was interesting how the reader never really quite got to see exactly what […]

As a student of ancient history, I was drawn to this book because of its links with mythology. However, it had less to do with Greek mythology than I initially imagined. The concept is original, especially in an age of paranormal young adult fiction linked to vampires – however, the Antauges did remind me of […]
