The Scorpio Races: A Review

I think I've found a new favorite. Never did I think I would say that a book about racing flesh-eating horses would earn five stars, but, as you can see, it has. Honestly, I have no words, just praise and fangirl squeals.  Maggie Stiefvater has a way with words. She turns them into poetry, into… Continue reading The Scorpio Races: A Review

The Folk of the Air Series Review

I recently read the first two books of The Folk of the Air series, The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King. I had heard such wonderful things about this gripping, suspenseful, dark fantasy. And in some ways, it delivered. But not quite, unfortunately. The Cruel Prince begins with Jude (the main protagonist) watching her parents… Continue reading The Folk of the Air Series Review
