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.

The Fifth Wave Series Review – Audiobooks

The Fifth Wave series starts out strong with the first book. In fact, The Fifth Wave, is one of my all-time favorite YA Apocalypse novels. In the first book the non-stop action, the intense...

The Dwellers Saga Omnibus – Audiobook Review

The audiobook omnibus of The Dwellers series was a great way to experience the dystopian series by David Estes. Narrated by Julia Whelan and Will Damron and over 29 hours of content, you get a powerhouse performance for one audible credit. I enjoyed the story and the world that Estes creates, but at times found the bad guy in the story a little cartoonish and over the top. The story and plotting of the novels have a very political tone, it's a plot to overthrow a dictator and free groups of oppressed people. Yet, the main evil guy, the dictator's motivations were very childish. If a complexity to his behavior would have been added to the plot this story would be amazing.

Mordacious by Sarah Lyons Fleming

A must read novel! Mordacious is the first in a new series, but an addition to Sarah Fleming's Until the End of the World series. Mordacious, takes us back to New York city and focuses on what "real life" survivors might have to deal with. In Mordacious you meet some new characters and some characters that were mentioned in the Until the End of the World series. I have high hopes for this new series and hope the culmination will be a huge plot arc that comes back to the original series.

Ash by Jaymin Eve & Leia Stone 

The debut novel from Jaymin Eve and Leia Stone titled, simply, Ash, was an entertaining paranormal romance read. I purchased this book via audiobook, looking for something different, and think that having it on audiobook was the only reason I made it to the end. It was entertaining, yes, but original, it was not. 

The Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

The Glass Sword is book two in the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard. The first book, Red Queen was a masterpiece, a must read if you have a thing for fantasy. The second book, Glass Sword, wasn’t quite as compelling as the first, but by the end had redeemed itself.

Talon by Julie Kagawa #Audiobook Review

PJV QUICKIE: I’m always excited over a new Julie Kagawa release and TALON was a great Young Adult read but it didn’t blow me away. I prefer her darker, grittier type of novels and this...
