After yesterday’s review of The Impossible Contract, let’s carry on straight away with the conclusion to this series, The Unconquered City!
As a teen I was a big fan of Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series, which is set in an elite boarding school that’s a front for a training academy for spies – they were a lot of fun! Since they were heavy on the teen drama, I was interested to see that she’d turned her hand to middle grade with her new book, The Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valour.
The Clifftoppers are back for their second exciting adventure!
An action-packed glimpse into our future, where sea levels have risen and only the wealthiest manage to live on dry land, inside the Wall…
Okay, so this ticks two of my major reading boxes – Regency romance with magic, and Garth Nix! I’ve been a fan since Sabriel, so this was a must-read for me, and it more than lived up to my expectations!
Isn’t that just the best title ever? Between that and the quirky cover, you know you’re in for an unusual ride!
I jumped at the chance to review Gumiho: Wicked Fox – as a huge fan of mythological creatures and K-drama, it sounded right up my street!
Dystopia tends to be the domain of YA fiction, so I was really interested to see how it would work for middle grade readers in The Middler… And the answer is, brilliantly!
I don’t remember exactly when this book hit my radar, but I knew from the minute I heard the title that it was going to be my kind of thing!
I’ve had a slump when it comes to high-tech, space-shippy sci-fi for a few… years. But between Elizabeth Bear’s Ancestral Night and this book, I think I’m a reborn spaceship lover??
