Series: Worldbreaker Saga #1 I generally expect more from Hurley's books. This was alright but my interest waxed and waned throughout the whole thing. There are some really cool concepts but a lot of stuff I could have just done without, and I wasn't all that keen on some of the characters, partic...

Where do I even start with this book? I first heard of this book on BookTube. I became intrigued by it because of the gender aspects so when I went to the library, I thought I'd give it a go. Well, the gender aspects are about all I enjoyed from this book. That's not true. I also enjoyed the writi...

This book made waves when first published, but it took me awhile to get around to reading it because it is brutal and alien and I have to be in the right mood for something like that.The Mirror Empire will appeal most to those who like high-concept dark fantasy: there are parallel worlds, populated ...

I struggled with rating this. On the one hand, I really didn't enjoy it very much. As in, every time I picked it up to read it I had the urge to go and do something else. On the other hand, I think this is more of an issue with my thoughts on epic fantasy than with the book. Because, let's be ...

This is one of those books, that at the beginning I was not sure I would enjoy. But as it progressed I liked it more and more. The main reason for my worry was that, the world building was so dense. There were so many places, and names and history and questions, that I found myself confused and di...

So… I made the mistake of reading The Language of Knives (short story) at the same time as this. And the two paired just give a whole new meaning to bringing relatives to dinner. Okay, having said that, and having read the Bel Dame Apocrypha, I knew what I was getting into here: Hurley is a master (...

(Description nicked from B&N.com.) “On the eve of a recurring catastrophic event known to extinguish nations and reshape continents, a troubled orphan evades death and slavery to uncover her own bloody past… while a world goes to war with itself. In the frozen kingdom of Saiduan, invaders from a...

At some point, I'd like to finish this book, but the politics became too tedious for me. The plot seemed to move slowly. Although it introduced some interesting worldbuilding ideas, I would've liked to have seen them better explored. (But note that I haven't read to the end.) One culture has three g...

I approached The Mirror Empire with mixed feelings. I'm already sort of a fan of Hurley's. I enjoyed her Bel Dame Apocryhpa series- though I'm not sure that "enjoy" is quite the correct term to apply to any of my readings of her work. Let's face it- her books are a challenging read. I found The Mirr...

One of the difficult things about reviewing books for me personally is having to write a less than favorable opinion. Not that I can’t be just as negative as the next person, because obviously it’s not hard to close a novel and say to a friend “Don’t waste your time. That story sucked.” Nope, my pro...
