The Graces HourglassEyes wrote a review (2017-01-19)
The Graces - Laure Eve
Starting of as a yet another "Twilight copy" The Graces surprises by being something else. Yes, it's a cliché when a girl, shy of course, moves into a new school and falls for the school best looking bad boy and his rich family. But as it turn out, Rivers motives to get to know Fenrin and the rest of the Graces family is something darker than teenage love. The Graces is not perfect, it has some annoying teen tantrum, but it brings a fresh breeze to genre.
A Head Full of Ghosts HourglassEyes wrote a review (2017-01-08)
A Head Full of Ghosts - Paul Tremblay
Bit of a disapointment. After reading Stephen King's praise for the book I thought I was in for some really chilling treat, but instead I got a version of the Exorcist - though the ending was something I did not expect, thus the extra half a star. Not actually bad book, but unsurprising until the end.
Storm Front (The Dresden Files, #1) Lilyn George wrote a review (2016-12-13)
Storm Front - Jim Butcher
I’ve seen The Dresden Files books around but never bothered to pick them up. I’d come across a book in the series at Half Price Books and think “Hm, should try this out sometime. I will when I find the first book.” I never looked hard, but finally this weekend I came across Storm Front. So I coughed up my $3.50 or so, and decided to let Mr. Dresden have his wicked way with me. Well, while Storm Front didn’t exactly wow me with its awesomeness, I can see why it’s as popular as it ...

Rarity from the Hollow robert eggleton wrote a review (2016-12-08)
Rarity from the Hollow - Robert Eggleton
“…In the space of a few lines we go from gritty realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It’s quite a trip." -- The Missouri Review “…utterly compelling…a chilling, engaging verisimilitude that deftly feeds on both the utter absurdity of the characters’ motivations and on the progression of the plot…. In the spirit of Vonnegut, Eggleton takes the genre and gives it another quarter turn.” -- Electric Review / Midwest Book Review "…a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to ... (read more)
Fairest: Levana's Story HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-11-07)
Fairest: Levana's Story - Marissa Meyer
It was a bit hard to start reading this after all that has happened in the parts 1-3 of Lunar Chronicles. Yet Fairest is an intresting one once you give it chance. It doesn't make you love Levana, but helps you understand her bit better.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Harry Potter, #8) HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-11-04)
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany
I liked this. The fact that the book is written as a play didn't bother me, but you could easily tell this isn't Rowlings text. Knowledge of the familiar characters was seemingly different of the "real Potters".
Hope and Red (The Empire of Storms, #1) HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-11-04)
Hope and Red - Jon Skovron
Occationally grotesk, yet very compelling. Great leading charachters, straightfoward storytelling with a hint of Pirates of Caribbean vibe on plot. Sea related slang also gives a nice touch to the story.
I Heart Robot Sini wrote a review (2016-10-15)
I Heart Robot - Suzanne van Rooyen
I read Suzanne's previous books and was impressed - especially with The Other Me (not SFF, so can't find that on this site). So when a chance came for me to read her new book, I Heart Robot, as an ARC, I snatched it and started to read it as soon as possible. Unfortunately I couldn't finish it at one sitting, as I had to go to work, but this is that kind of a book! What this isn't: a run-of-the-mill YA dystopian romance with a pretty girl who has to choose between her two handsome suitors. ... (read more)
The Runestaff (Hawkmoon: The History of the Runestaff, #4) bruce wrote a review (2016-10-11)
The Runestaff - Michael Moorcock
I first read this book when it first was published and it was then one of my favouites. It brought to a thrilling conc;usion the story of Dorian Hawkmoon. I would then have recommended it very highly. I am about to start re-reading the Michael Moorcock ouevre, I hopr that these books live up to my fond memories
The High Ground (The Imperials Saga, #1) HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-10-09)
The High Ground - Melinda Snodgrass
Good, bit old school military space opera.
Promise of Blood (The Powder Mage Trilogy, #1) Robin Lythgoe wrote a review (2016-10-05)
Promise of Blood - Brian McClellan
Wow. What a tense, action-packed, intrigue-filled, story! While not without its (few) flaws, Promise of Blood is an extraordinary debut. So much about it was epic: revolution, religion, magic, world-building, family issues, addiction issues, mystery—and McClellan has managed to blend them all together completely and seamlessly. This book sets a very high standard for *epic* flintlock fantasy. And the characters! More wow. They're as far from cookie-cutter as you can get. McClellan brings ... (read more)
The Bronze Key (Magisterium, #3) HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-10-11)
The Bronze Key - Cassandra Clare, Holly Black
Bronze key has been darkest part in the series so far and show's proof that none of the charachters, friend or foe, is safe.
The High King's Vengeance (Malessar's Curse, #2) Steven Poore wrote a review (2016-09-20)
The High King's Vengeance - Steven Poore
As with Heir to the North, I'm rather biased here, but I enjoyed this one!:)
Heir to the North (Malessar's Curse, #1) Steven Poore wrote a review (2016-09-20)
Heir to the North - Steven Poore
Well, I'm biased, but I enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. :)
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) Esther wrote a review (2016-09-12)
City of Bones - Cassandra Clare
I am in love with the series I read all six books in about a week and I love the story man I have all posters and books and movie I love you JACE and great awesome job Cassandra Clare I am very inspired
Preacher: Book Six (Preacher, #6) HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-09-10)
Preacher: Book Six - Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon
Words can't describe what a amazing journey it has been traveling along with Jesse, Tulip & Cassidy. Truly compelling, Preacher is one of these rare stories that make you feel regret 'cause you'll never be able to read them again "for the first time."
The Great Ordeal (The Aspect-Emperor, #3) Rake wrote a review (2016-09-07)
The Great Ordeal - R. Scott Bakker
I loved this installment in, what is, a great series. It wasn't as introspective as White-Luck Warrior and contains some great action. A couple of interesting new characters also! Great read!
Artefact (The Lazarus War, #1) HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-09-04)
Artefact - Jamie Sawyer
Nicely paced & actionfilled plot. Especially the last half of the book was quite gripping!
Spinning Thorns HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-09-02)
Spinning Thorns - Anna Sheehan
Excellent choice for all who love to read fairytale bound stories. E.g Marissa Meyers Lunar Chronicles.
Insurgent (Divergent, #2) HourglassEyes wrote a review (2016-08-13)
Insurgent - Veronica Roth
Would it kill the writers to actually make a female lead without all the moping and martyr attitude, even when the lead is a teenager? I mean with just a little bit more brain powers for Tris and the book would have been better just by leaving half of the annoyance away.
Half a War (The Shattered Sea, #3) Tad Ottman wrote a review (2016-08-02)
Half a War - Joe Abercrombie
[ SPOILERS - click to open ]
Sleeping Giants (Themis Files, #1) Tad Ottman wrote a review (2016-08-02)
Sleeping Giants - Sylvain Neuvel
Sleeping Giants is science fiction at its best. Original, exciting and thought-provoking. The story is told through journal entries and interviews. Rather than distancing you from the story, it draws you in and makes it more personal. The premise is fantastic. Part of an alien artifact literally beneath our feet. Who put it there? Giw does it work? Are they coming back? Were we meant to find it? Why now? The involvement of the military, shadowy operatives inside and outside of government, ... (read more)
The Cold Between (Central Corps, #1) Tad Ottman wrote a review (2016-08-02)
The Cold Between - Elizabeth Bonesteel
The Cold Between by Elizabeth Bonesteel is the beginning of an interesting new SF series. Part military sci-fi, part space opera, part mystery and a little bit of romance. It’s an interesting and very entertaining book that has a nicely contained story that doesn’t leave you hanging, but still makes you want to continue the series to learn more about the characters and this universe. Elena Shaw is a strong lead character who is driven, competent and no nonsense. Elena hooks up with Treiko ... (read more)
