Mini Reviews: ‘Vicious’ and ‘Foundation’

I’m a fan of V.E. Schwab’s work, so Vicious is a book I’ve been meaning to read for ages, and I’m so glad I finally got round to it this month! Especially because it lived up to my high expectations! I also read Foundation this month, which is by Mercedes Lackey, an author I’ve been meaning to check out for a while. I always see her books in the fantasy section of Waterstones, and I loved the look of the covers, so when I noticed Foundation for sale on Kindle, I snapped it up. Unfortunately I found myself being a bit disappointed by this book, so… Read more »

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab “Sure I do,” countered Lila cheerfully. “There’s Dull London, Kell London, Creepy London, and Dead London,” she recited, ticking them off on her fingers. “See? I’m a fast learner.” Kell is one of only two people with the ability to travel between parallel universes and the three different Londons: the dull, magicless Grey London, the enchanting, magical Red London, and the bleak, desperate White London. Because of his rare abilities he acts as an official messenger between the different Londons, but unofficially he is a smuggler, a hobby that gets him into a… Read more »

Review: This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab

‘”Monsters, monsters, big and small, They’re gonna come and eat you all!”‘ I’ve heard so many good things about Victoria Schwab’s books that I’ve been meaning to try them out for ages! Oddly though, despite having owned A Darker Shade of Magic for ages I ended up reading this one first after I bought it as part of an offer with Empire of Storms.  Thie Savage Song tells the story of Katherine Harker and August Flynn, the children of two bitter enemies, each of whom control a different side of a divided City. Kate wants nothing more than her father’s approval, and tries to… Read more »
