My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I give this read a 3.5 star rating.
A wonderful read for the YA generation. The world the author created with everything dragons and fantasy was indeed fascinating and unique. The lead character shows plenty of grown as her exciting journey unfolds.
The book opens with mystery, drama and action - (whats not to like?)
Looking forward to book two.

Bitterblue (Graceling Realm, #3)Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


As always Kristin Cashore delivers a story-world like any in comparison. Her characters are unbelievably detailed and very likable. Her dialog runs smooth and perfect. This book did run a tad too long for me, and was missing some of that spectacular action scenes we fell in love with in the first two books. She put forth a remarkable story. This is a wonderful book, where she joins both worlds of book one and two in one. The miseries and torment surrounding her father unfold in a magnificent way. I lover her characters so very much and hope to see the series continued.

City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments, #5)City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As always there is action from the word go. I did however feel a bit disappointed nearing the end of the first half - it felt to me almost as if a ghost writer had taken over, or the editing was a bit rushed, there were many repetitive phrases that annoyed me - like looking through eyelashes. In fact I struggled to continue reading - but I continued because of the brilliant story and the plot that unfolded was as expected riveting! Into the last third of the book Cassandra's voice shone through again and the book ended brilliantly. I subtracted a star - for I found the middle of this book almost absent of Cassandra's writing style. It just lacked the x-factor I fell in love with when it came to her writing style, her use of words, phrases and poetic deepness was a bit absent. But a very enjoyable read indeed.

Dead Embers (Valkyrie, #2)Dead Embers by T.G. Ayer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Oh I love it when all the little pieces fall together. I have been a fan of TG Ayer since the fist opening line of the first book - Dead Radiance. This author has created something gripping, exciting, thrilling and very much engaging. I loved this book, and every little piece of it. TG Ayer is very very talented! I hardly got bored, I always wanted to know what was happening. The Characters were brilliantly developed. Thor!!! *swoon*, from the Gods, to the warriors I had no sense of her forcing a personality out of her characters. This has been one of my favorite reads of 2012. Thank you TG Ayer for a really awesome read!
