Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson was one of those middle of the road books that is so hard to review. I enjoyed it but found enough wrong with it that I can’t give it a glowing review. I did find the premise interesting and the characters compelling, but I also found that it was rather immature at times and repetitive. I also found that a lot of the plot was not explained which was a bit of a frustration, because it did have a lot of potential and Sanderson’s writing style is…well epic.

Arcana Rising by Kresley Cole – Release Day Review

Kresley Cole’s ‘Arcana Rising’ is the fourth installment in her Arcana Chronicles. This Young Adult Dystopian series is one of my favorites. It has it all – action, ridiculously potent characters, drama, and carnage. I waited patiently (well not so patiently) for ‘Arcana Rising’ and when I got it in my inbox – I devoured it. It didn’t disappoint. Where do I start? I can start at the beginning I guess. Please don’t read further if you have not had the pleasure of ‘Dead of Winter,’ I’m about to spoil it for you. Frankly, Cole ended the last book...
