    Okay, so. I liked it, but... I needed it to be about twice as long. For once I don't mean this in the simple 'I wanted more' sort of way, though I did/do. I mean that this book would have been much stronger had it been given more room to grow, and had the plot not been cut where it ...

    Joy shows massive talent in her stellar worldbuilding and tricky premise. l loved the complex system of magic and rich history of the kingdoms. My only complaint is how much I hated Eva's mother and sister. Truly, they were so awful that I was ready for Eva to end them all. Luckily, Ev...

    A River of Royal Blood is a fabulous and exciting read. The premise reminding me of Three Dark Crowns, a novel I was so excited to read because of the premise, but was disappointed by. So, picking up A River of Royal Blood, I hoped it would do more for me with it's similar premise than...

    I received an ARC from BookishFirst in exchange for an honest review. ?Even if I had to become the wicked girl of my nightmares, a maelstrom of marrow and blood, I would do whatever it took to stay alive.? I really enjoyed this book, which is about sibling rivalry and on thei...

    *Spoiler free* Just from the title alone, I wanted to read this book. It sounds dark and a dark royal story sounds amazing. Then it just sounds better from the synopsis. I've recently fallen in love with sister stories and this one sounded complicated and bloody. There's also a Quee...

    I?m still so conflicted about this book. I loved the world and the rich culture that just flew off the pages. I loved the the idea of sisters fighting for the crown. I loved that it was very much focused on women. I loved the different races of the characters and the different ma...

    Prereview March 2019 Ah yes, and here we see publishers begin slapping "perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone" onto any African inspired YA fantasy. On a side note, I personally neither love nor hate the cover, it's okay. Looks like most YA fantasy nowadays. ...

    I kept waiting for the main plot of this book to pick up, but it never seemed to happen. We didn't get to learn a lot about our characters or our world in this book, we were just thrown into it. It's like the author expected us to know everything about the world and the characters a...
