If I am being completely honest, this book was a little bit of a disappointment. I would still definitely say that it was overall an enjoyable read, but it didn't stand out to me. When I first read The Devouring Gray last year I loved it, but found it didn't stick with me, and so I had to reread it before reading this book. The Devouring Gray wasn't quite as enjoyable on a second read as I think a lot of my enjoyment was reliant on the mystery and I already knew how it ended. This feeling carried over into my reading experience of The Deck of Omens, but as I said it was still a good and fun read as a whole.
I am so glad that I got to read this book. Right from the off this book was extremely promising, dragons, a prophecy, a teenage assassin, and so many secrets! And overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable book, I was completely engaged from the beginning all the way through.
Today I have a great post for you, I am part of the blog tour for Zoë Marriott's new LGBTQ Fantasy novel, The Hand The Eye and The Heart. This is such an amazing blog tour as it is incredibly creative, so I, of course, had to follow that vibe as well!
This was such a fun debut fantasy novel, and I am so glad I got to read it early and now share it with all of you! I was amazed at how this book didn't read like a debut at all, and I am very excited to see what else P.M. Freestone releases in the future, both as a continuation of this series and beyond.
December was a great reading month!! It didn't start out too well because I was very busy at university so couldn't read too much, but in the last two weeks of the month I was able to read loads, and it has been one of my best reading months of the year.
This book was an interesting reading experience. I was so excited to read this, it sounded fascinating and original and exactly like the kind of book I should love but something about it just didn't work for me. I think the story was still quite interesting, although not what I had hoped, but the main downfall was in the execution of this novel.
Somehow, this has actually been quite a successful reading month! As I started back at Uni this month I thought I would be very limited in how much time I would have to read, and I kind of was but I still managed to make quite a lot of time and get through quite a few books, with a grand total of 8!
I am absolutely in love with this book! It is by far the best book I have read so far this year and I highly doubt it will be beaten for quite some time! Laini Taylor has created a true masterpiece with this duology and I am already extremely excited for when I shave the time to reread this series! Somehow this book was actually better than Strange the Dreamer which I didn't think would be possible, but as always Laini Taylor came out and surprised me with another stunning novel.
Rating: 5 stars (I wish my scale allowed for more, because this book deserves it!) Synopsis The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around - and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he's been obsessed with the mythic lost... Continue Reading →
Wow! There is no other way to start this review that would fully sum up my love for this book. This is the third V.E. Schwab book I read and honestly it was extraordinary. The premise was absolutely fascinating, the characters were amazing and I just adored this book so much. I cannot wait to read Vengeful which is being released later this month (25th September 2018), I am so ready to be back in this amazing world!
