Review of ~ Joe Abercrombie – The Blade Itself (The First Law #1)

8/10 I was up until half five yesterday morning reading intensely to finish off this story. I didn’t write the review then as it would have been a tired, mumbled mess with little to no eloquence and it wouldn’t have included any cool sounding words. Let’s see how I get on now after a good…… Continue reading Review of ~ Joe Abercrombie – The Blade Itself (The First Law #1)

Review of ~ James Patterson – Kiss The Girls (Alex Cross #2)

9.0/10 I received an ARC of Kiss the Girls via NetGalley and I would like to thank James Patterson, Random House UK, Cornerstone and Arrow. Although this is a well-known classic thriller, first released in 1995, a new version with that strikingly awesome cover is being published on 29 June 2017. Kiss the Girls is…… Continue reading Review of ~ James Patterson – Kiss The Girls (Alex Cross #2)

8/10 To begin, I would like to Adrian G. Hilder and Camdaw for sending me a copy of The General’s Legacy, Part 1: Inheritance in exchange for an honest review.

9.5/10 By all means, check out my reviews of book #1 and #2. This is just a quick review as I do not wish to spoil anything critical to this story or repeat my previous reviews.

Review of ~ Mark Lawrence – The Liar’s Key (The Red Queen’s War #2)

8.5/10 This review contains minor spoilers. The Liar’s Key is the second book in Lawrence’s The Red Queen’s War trilogy. I adored Prince of Fools which followed Jalan’s escapades across The Broken Empire and therefore picked up this book as soon as I could. The survivors from the quest to the Black Fort are Jalan,…… Continue reading Review of ~ Mark Lawrence – The Liar’s Key (The Red Queen’s War #2)
