5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

December 15, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★½

Inspired by classic tales The synopsis states that THE WRATH AND THE DAWN is inspired by A Thousand Arabian Nights, which is a story I’ve always been meaning to read because the few retellings I’ve read have been amazing. THE WRATH OF THE DAWN was no exception, but I wish there had been more of the story telling involved throughout […]

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

September 15, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★★

  Not for younger audiences NEVERNIGHT features a school for asassins and a revenge plot. I would be disappointed if the voilence was softened to suit a younger audience. Darker, more complex tales targeted at a slightly older audience are much more interesting in my opinion. NEVERNIGHT is bloody and intense. People could die at any time. But this wasn’t […]
