5 Things About Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

5 Things About Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

May 4, 2016 Review 28 ★★★

“You cannot stand astride the line between good and evil, life and death, for long. It will destroy you.” FLAMECASTER is the first book I’ve read from Cinda Williams Chima. Although I’ve heard that you don’t need to read her previous books to understand the spinoff, I feel like there is a lot I didn’t fully appreciate. While I can’t […]

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

April 10, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★

‘You are this country, Amani.’ He spoke more quietly now. ‘More alive than anything ought to be in this place. All fire and gunpowder, with one finger always on the trigger.” The hype for this book was strong. So strong I couldn’t resist ordering it online with rush shipping even though I didn’t read it right away. I never said […]
