    Middlegame is weird and challenging, and I loved it. Let me start by stating that the synopsis doesn't feel very accurate to me. Yes, Roger and Dodger are twins... kind of. But I don't think the books itself refers to attaining godhood. So I'm glad I didn't read the synopsis very ca...

    Oh, lordy! Big caveat coming. I'm already a devoted fanboy of Seanan and I read almost everything she ever comes out with no matter what because I trust her implicitly. BUT. Nothing prepared me for this ambitious, thoughtful, mind-blowing modern fantasy of Alchemy and Twins. She...

    Fans of McGuire's Wayward Children series will love this darker tale that explores, twins, balance, chaos, order, the power of words, math, time, and alchemy. While the Wayward series had a young adult feel, this does not despite some whimsical imagery. The tale started out slowly ...

    I'm throwing in the towel at 40%. I like the story so far, I really do, but it's dragging. And I'm dragging my feet every time I have to pick it up again because of that. I feel like I've been reading forever and getting nowhere. I fully admit this is my fault, not the fault of ...

    Well... that was odd. It was nothing like any other Seanan McGuire or Mira Grant book I?ve ever read. And I love this lady?s writing. Maybe she needs another pseudonym (lol). Overall this is Blake Crouch meets Sci-Fi meets Re-telling (sort of) meets something I?ve never read be...

    This book was MADE for me. It?s a Slytherclaw?s dream: alchemists, world domination, hyper-intelligent tragedy twins (one math genius + one word genius), murder, bloodthirstiness, cruelty, guarded characters, fanatical perfection and imperfection, loneliness, fire, and blood -- so ...

    ?Words can be whispered bullet-quick when no one?s looking, and words don?t leave blood or bruises behind. Words disappear without a trace. That?s what makes them so powerful. That?s what makes them so important. That?s what makes them hurt so much.? Seanan McGuire?...

    This synopsis had been taunting me for months. It's honestly just so well written I can barely stand it. For some reason I was hella nervous to actually get into this book. This was my first Seanan McGuire outside of (one of my favourite series of all time) The Wayward Children books, ...
