And Spike wrote this...
[ Spike: Into the Light Marsters, James ( Author ) ] { Hardcover } 2014 - James Marsters

James Marsters penned this, but it doesn't really make sense to me to have this set in season seven, although maybe I'm misremembering the series.   I didn't like season seven much so I haven't seen it in a while. 

 

Anyway, I was disappointed in how short this was, in the lack of character development and the storyline.   The art was fun, and Spike was pretty Spike, so it's not like I hated this.  I'd just hoped for more, especially because I was so pleased with Marsters' writing in the Spike and Dry one-shots.

A Conjuring of Light
A Conjuring of Light - V.E. Schwab

by V.E. Schwab

 

Third in the series. I had a time gap between reading the second book of this series and this one, so jumping right into action that effectively continues from the second book took me a little while to settle into.

 

It all started coming back soon. Book two left us on a cliffhanger with Kell in peril! I was so displeased about the cliffhanger that I didn't even bother to review it. But a few chapters into this one and I was desperate to see him escape.

 

I found this one stressful. Too many tempers, too much hopelessness in the situation that arises. Many times I wanted to just stop so I wouldn't have to go back into this imaginary world anymore, so unlike the first book that made it rather fun. It also meanders a lot and it took me quite a long time to read it because it didn't always hold my attention and seemed overly long.

 

But with the first two books of the series demanding continuity, I persevered. I'm glad I did. The last third of the book had me doing late nights. I was really gripped! All I'll say about the end is that it all gets tied up neatly, though I do wonder who will inherit the kingdom in the next generation.

This is a cleverly designed little catalogue for an exhibition of silver work over the centuries, showcasing the wide variety of designs, techniques and uses silver can be put to, outside the realm of jewelry. If you admire skill, elegance and innovation, you'd have loved this exhibition.

Unlike the whopping book by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths that I read a while ago, which was focused on contemporary silversmithing, this exhibition ranges from the present to several centuries ago.
