The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon {Jenna’s Review}

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon {Jenna’s Review}

Posted 24 September, 2014 by Jenna / 6 Comments

An impressively memorable dystopian fantasy debut. My Thoughts It is a bleak 2059 in Samantha Shannon’s London. There is a fascinating order of clairvoyants who make up the underworld and gangs in and around the city. High treason is routinely committed by breaking into people’s minds or dreamscapes. It’s complicated and intellectually stimulating and it’s […]

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi {Amanda’s Review}

Posted 3 April, 2013 by Amanda / 18 Comments

Amazing follow-up wins me over…again. Thoughts on Through the Ever Night When I read Under the Never Sky, I was completely captivated by the world that Veronica Rossi built and the characters in it. Whenever that happens, I approach the second book with trepidation because I want it to be just as good–or better–than the first […]
