Review: To Kill A Warlock by H.P Mallory
To Kill A Warlock - H.P. Mallory

**To read the rest of this review, click the title!**

 

Alas, another book I was just glad to be done with (but luckily no money involved with this one), and another one I can't be bothered to write a pretty and well organized review for. You'll have to deal with the messy, or not. Your choice…

I've been so excited to read a H.P Mallory book since she's been on my authors-to-check list for a while, and even more excited when I got this as a free kindle book from Amazon!
Let's just say the excitement died pretty early on. 

I couldn't stand the writing. Something about it just caught in my ear and made me wince, made me grit my teeth and hope this would be over soon. I can't even tell you what about it guaranteed such an extreme reaction, only that it did. Maybe it was Dulcie's voice itself that was the problem? I think I will be giving another of Mallory's books a try (though not any time soon) to check that out.

While reading this book the question why the heck am reading this book kept popping into my mind, flashing in...

The Underground City by HP Mallory
The Underground City - H.P. Mallory

I have been a huge fan of HP Mallory for over a year. At first I felt that this series had so much potential but fell short after the first book. The second book definitely improved my opinion. I felt that Tallis Black lacked major development. The Underground City makes up for this and then some. Lily Harper grows as a character but I'm still not feeling Bill. I would like for him to have some redeeming qualities rather than being just the comic relief. More world development outside of the underground city would make this book excellent; however, HP is definitely moving in he right direction with this series. If only there wasn't such an abrupt ending!!!

Cute, but Wishing For a Little More...
To Kill A Warlock - H.P. Mallory

Cute. I do love me some fairies, and I dig her fae dust magic... but it was like a few chuckles, a few eye rolls... and I wish the romance was a little more- well that about sums it up, a little more.

 

The action... there was some, and we're given the idea that Dulcie is more badass than I really feel was reflected in the book.  She couldn't do undercover shit to save her life, except magically dress the part.  She was supposed to come off snarkier, I think, than she actually does.

 

And the major fight/reveal/bust (whatever you want to call it) I was lost for about 5 minutes. Totally confused about who was there, and why others were not. Eventually, I'll continue the series, but I'm not in any great hurry.  It's likely I'll try to check out future titles from my local library, if they are available.

*Listen to the audiobook version.

Witchful Thinking [H.P. Mallory]
Witchful Thinking: A Jolie Wilkins Novel - H. P. Mallory

Really ★★★½, but the ending made up for it! I wasn't too sure about Joile being Queen, but I kind of get it now, even if she isn't any happier about her being Queen. That's really all that happened in this book, plot wise - Joile learning what it means to be Queen. See below for my relationship-related rant!

Spoilers ahead, as well as some anti-Rand ranting

I wonder if she's going to redo the whole series, since that ending requires some reworking of the series so far. I think Sinjin was lying to Joile (I hope so anyway!) but I'm worried now.

I don't get Joile, she even says something about how she doesn't understand why she keeps coming back to Rand, since he keeps kicking her, but she comes back anyway. I think he really does love her, but he doesn't really know what to do with that love and he fights it. I've never really liked him anyway, but after the last 2 books, I'm going to be really pissed if she ends up with Rand! I don't care if she does or doesn't end up with Sinjin (although I do like him) I just really don't want her to end up with Rand
