What The Dead Know - Nghi Vo

 

I'm not usually a fan of ghost stories or mystics and psychics, but this one was neat. It had this magic element that made it quite interesting. I got a real sense of what the author writes like as well, and being my introduction to her it left me wanting to read more.

The Six Deaths Of The Saint - Alix E. Harrow
The cover of this one draws me right in. I get a Joan Of Arc feel from it. And my feeling wasn't that far off. This girl is a warrior, a magical warrior. She gets used to dominate the kingdom and the action is one thing, but the writing of the story is another! This is by far my favorite of the series so far, and mostly for the writing. This author really knows how to tell a story and keep the reading rapt throughout. I can't wait to read more from Alix E. Harrow. Brilliant!!

Persephone - Lev Grossman

 

This is an author that I have wanted to read his book, The Magicians, for some time.... well, this came up first so here we go!
I'm not sure how to feel about this one. I liked the way the author wrote. It was easy to read, and I wanted to know whatever I could about Persephone. The ending was rushed through though.
We do get the answers that were being sought after. So there's that, but maybe Persephone did not get the answers. It was unique in that way to tell a story, but I liked that. That ending though... le sigh.

The Garden - Tomi Champion-Adeyemi
My introduction to this author, and not my last.
Generally, I am not a fan of books that are written in prose. This one was different for me though. I loved so many of the poems, and they also told the story of Leina and her journey.
It was a magical journey of self-discovery that really appealed to me. It also left me wanting more.
That's the thing with short stories. Their short but usually sweet.

Still Game - Rumaan Alam

 

This was my least favorite of the series.
I didn't like the style of writing.
I didn't like the story.
I didn't think it fit with the series at all.
No mystery, no suspense, no thrills, nothing.
Just words. Telling us of a vacation. Nothing special happened.
I'm bored.
