Gilded Cage by Vic James
This is a YA fantasy novel set in a dystopian future where there are a few people who are able to use magic. Those who are unable to use magic must spend ten years of their life as a slave. This could be in a factory or it could be in a manor where the “Equals” live their lives of luxury.
This book follows the Hadley family as they embark on their “years”. Even from the beginning everything starts to fall apart. Continue reading “(64) Gilded Cage // Bookish Blurb”
Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes
This is book 4 in the Falling Kingdom series. See my reviews for books one, two, and three. This book doesn’t really do any recap so you kind of have to have read the other books to understand what is going on. In this book we follow Lucia as she teams up with a venge seeking fire god, Jonas, who continues to be manipulated and fail at what he does, and Magnus and Cleo as they fight over the kindred and their hearts. Continue reading “(52) Frozen Tides // Bookish Blurb”
Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes
This is book three in the Fallen Kingdoms series. See my reviews for book one and two. So this book continues on with the struggle to find the Kindred and take over the world (basically). Everyone has their own reason for wanting the Kindred and using Princess Lucia to find them.
This is going to be a rather incoherent review since I seem to find it very hard to describe this series. Continue reading “(46) Gathering Darkness // Bookish Blurb”
Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman
This book is the sequel to Seraphina. Although it is the sequel, it does have a fairly nice summary of the first book at the beginning so if you wanted to you could probably read this without having read the first book. This book picks up where the last one left off, with the kingdom going to war for peace. The majority of this book involves following Seraphina around the kingdoms as she searches for the other half-dragons and tries to get people to join their side for this war. Continue reading “(45) Shadow Scale // Bookish Blurb”
Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
This is book two in the Falling Kingdoms series (book one being Falling Kingdoms).
In the previous book, the three kingdoms (that are on the same island) went to war and King Gaius ended up controlling all three. So basically the premise of this book is that King Gaius is building a road to connect the three kingdoms while also continuing his domination of the people and proving himself supreme leader which sounds boring but I promise this book was not. Continue reading “(43) Rebel Spring // Bookish Blurb”
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
I forget where I got the recommendation for this book from but when I saw the physical book my reaction was ‘Oh no, that looks like a hardcore fantasy book, I’m not going to like that’. I almost didn’t even read it but I am very glad that I did.
Basically this book is about three kingdoms that decide to go to war. It is told from four different perspectives throughout the three kingdoms with interjections from a fifth character in a magical separate world. Continue reading “(37) Falling Kingdoms // Bookish Blurb”
The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
This is a YA fantasy story set in real life. The premise of the story is that Jack thinks he is a normal boy and then learns that there is a magical community all around him that wants to use him and/or kill him.
Although I did end up enjoying this story, I found it very hard to get into it. I just didn’t care about the characters or the situation but I’m glad I persisted. Continue reading “(36) The Warrior Heir // Bookish Blurb”
