Unbreakable by Firelight  --For Alina…because she's quickly becoming unbreakable and she's going to kick some serious butt, soon.♫

 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

4/5 STARS

B+

 

My Thoughts

 

 

There's a lot of reviews out there for this; so I'm going to keep this short.  Sometimes RL can really get in the way of your overall enjoyment of a book, and while I tried not to let it reflect in my overall rating of this book…it did make it so I was unable to stay focused while listening to this.  Although, the middle did drag and seem rather blah at times.  I don't know if it was me or the book, half the time. 

 

 

The site where I found the map above is really interesting…a grishaverse wiki…this really helps to fill in the gaps where I've missed pertinent info due to my spacing out.

Heroes by Generdyn Music ft. Zayde Wølf  -- I seriously don't know how I came across this, nor have I ever heard of this Generdyn or Zayde Wolf...but really this goes with the book really well has all the feels for it.  It's very inspiring and quite intriguing.♫

 

 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

3.8/5 STARS

My Thoughts

 

The Last City formerly known as Gods of Anthem reads like two separate stories.  One is Liza's and the other is Tommy's.  Alternating between the two every so often, not necessarily at chapter breaks.  Which maybe made the story more confusing for me, at least for first 2/3rd of the book.  Although, I did prefer Liza's story over Tommy's because it was a little less complicated. 

 

Oh yeah…there's zombies in this as well…which I'm usually freaked out by them, because they give me nightmares.  These zombies, though, are sorta kept behind the walls so to speak, at least most of the time.  The zombie theme is not overly prevalent, which I did like, because, I didn't have any sleepless nights while reading this.

 

 

Ultimately, though, The Last City feels more like a prequel because of it's rather anti-climatic ending.  I felt like the story only became engaging within the last few pages.  I think the series has the potential to be exceptional, I just don't know if the Author can pull it off, at least for me.

Ending:  3.8/5 Cliffhanger:  Yes, pretty much

 

Will I continue this series?  I already have the arc of La La Land, and I feel like theirs potential for this to be a great story…so…yeah.

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

This really is a satisfying ending to the Reckoners Series…I liked it, but…

 

 

 

I loved the first book in this series, it was inventive and clever.  The second book came out and I listened to it on audio, and I blamed the audio on why I couldn't fully connect.  I decided I would readCalamity because of that.  So…back to book format and I still couldn't fully connect.  I have to say, that sometimes, I just didn't know what was going on, like it was too complex for me.  I think this was a case of it's-not-you-it's-me.  I have to say though, that for me, David, is one of the best characters I have ever encountered.  It's by far the reason that I kept reading this series.

This third book introduced some intriguing elements to this world and it opened up opportunities for a spin-off series.  Will I read those when or if they come out?  Only time will tell…maybe if David is in them.

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

Gilded Cage has this whole modern/historical/feel to it.  Mixed with a witch/superhuman/monster thing. 

 

 I believe this has everything it needs to be great, plot wise, anyway.  It missed the mark somewhat for me.  It might be that it's too British for me or it might be that it has so many words that I was clueless about.  I didn't get why the author would want to use so many odd words in her story, it seemed over the top to me.  But, maybe that falls into the whole too-British thing.  I don't know???  All I know is I struggled with the flow. 

 I love the cover for this, it's absolutely stunning.  The world it's set in is exceptionally shocking and somewhat intimidating too.  So much so, that I really wish I hadn't struggled with reading it, because I wanted to love it completely.

One of my favorite series…Zombies…you can cheer for!

 

 

 

 

While I had a few tiny issues with some things, this is still another great installment in the White Trash Zombie Series.  Some of the issues were with everything involving Heather, but I can't say more than that without revealing too much.  Otherwise there are some interesting developments and we learn more about Philip, too.  I'm looking forward to the next book How the White Trash Zombies Gets Her Groove Back, and...I have it on Audio!

 ⇝Sex Factor⇜ Just talk of sex, no actual sex…par the course for this series.
