Advanced Review: Sapphire Flames by Ilona Andrews (Hidden Legacy #4)

Mini Review: Fantastic addition to the Hidden Legacy series. I loved every single second of the two times in a row I read it.

Advanced Review: The Witch King by Nancy Holland, (The Witch King trilogy #3)

Mini Review: A rather lackluster ending to already lackluster trilogy. I expect great things from the author in the future.

Advanced Review: Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff (The Nevernight Chronicle #3)

Mini Review: The perfect ending to a fantastic series. More in the series review list.

Advanced Review: To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers

Mini Review: A sci-fi novella from Becky Chambers that is completely different than Wayfarers. More sci-fi than I expected.

Advanced Review: Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdes

Mini Review: A first in a new series with an interesting premise and filled with pop culture references. The main character gets in a bind, and when she tries to fix it consistently fails to do as promised.

Advanced Review: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

Mini Review: An absolutely perfect portal fantasy full of wonder. I loved it.

Advanced Review: The Resurrectionist of Caligo by Wendy Trimboli, Alicia Zaloga

Mini Review: I wish I liked this more than I did, but I came out with so many problems that I just couldn’t ignore.

Advanced Review: A Hero Born by Jin Yong, translated by Anna Holmwood

Mini Review: A classic wuxia series, now translated into English. I realized while reading this that while this genre is definitely not for me, if you’re a fan of it you’ll probably love this story.

Series: Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon by Yasmine Galenorn: Bone Magic, Harvest Hunting, Blood Wyne, Courting Darkness

Mini Review: How one series can stay so consistently average, I don’t know. But at least it stays average.

Series: The Tower and the Hive by Anne McCaffrey: Damia’s Children, Lyon’s Pride

Mini Review: After a strong start to the series, the next couple of books didn’t live up to the promise of the first. Still very good classic sci fi, though.

Series: Guild Hunter by Nalini Singh: Archangel’s Consort, Archangel’s Blade, Archangel’s Storm, Archangel’s Legion, Archangel’s Shadow

Mini Review: I love this series so much, but there are some books that are not as good as others.

Series: Hidden Legacy by Ilona Andrews: Burn For Me, White Hot, Wildfire, Sapphire Flames

Mini Review: One of my favourite series ever. I finally reread them so I could review them. Featuring a family of nobodies in a world where being a somebody means everything, an absolutely perfect romance, and a hell of a lot of magic being thrown around.

Series: Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs: Fire Touched, Silence Fallen

Mini Review: I reached the end of the reread, and the series is still amazing. Mercy sure knows how to cause trouble by existing!

Series: The Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff: Nevernight, Godsgrave, Darkdawn

Mini Review: Hiu from The Fantasy Inn put it best: “Stabby girl stabs lots of people and gets stabbed in turn, in all senses of the word. Smutty violent fantasy with a talking cat-of-shadows that is snarky as fuck.” I really enjoyed it, but it isn’t for everyone.
