Main points I REALLY loved this book! It’s been a while since I’ve read something this good. I’d love to have it in hardcover. I ended up enjoying the alternating POVs. At first it was a little bit much to handle, but since we kept returning to the same characters more than others I knew where the main storyline was. (And I had a hunch.) It all came together quickly enough. It was quite an engaging read. I couldn’t put it down. The writing was excellent—and only a few mistakes. The plot was really cool. […]

Main points This book was good. I really liked the plot. The characters were frustrating at times, but the story was pretty good. It made sense. It was believable. Even the character’s actions were believable (if annoying). It was unpredictable at times. It was pretty intriguing and a page-turner. The writing was good enough. Some editing issues. It was third person omniscient so occasionally you had to think a minute about who was thinking what but it wasn’t too distracting. I kinda liked the POVs. When there’s any kind of romance, I prefer knowing what […]

Main points This book was very, very good! The storyline is definitely not unique, but this is a very good telling. I really liked the writing. It stood out among many of the ARCs I receive. It had an emotional quality to it. There were memories and sweet, meaningful moments in all the right places. There were moments that seemed normal or even strange but were actually very emotional and poignant. I just love that. It’s like, you don’t need words to explain the feeling. You see the actions and you just know what’s going […]

Main points Oh boy. I loved this book so much. And the cover…it’s so beautiful. Truly a work of art. Man, this book was awesome! It was everything I enjoy about a fantasy (my favorite genre), without the fantastical elements. There were gunfights, disguises, plans, cards, horses, gold, a vengeful stubborn heroine and plot twists. I really did like the characters. All felt so real, with realistic actions. Not necessarily predictable, but I wasn’t frustrated with any of them at any point. Yes, Kate was very stubborn and hotheaded, but she listened to reason. The […]
