    After a hard time getting in to the story I did like it. What I did not like are the many POV?s. I am not a fan of books written in the first person. I like short chapters but this book has to many! I did like the plot twist at the end of the book. ...

    Netgalley, mostly because I couldn?t wait. I also bought the limited hardback edition, just so it?s 100% clear that I love this. A lot. And my other half listened to the audio-book and declared she'd read anything by James. This household loves V.V. James. Sanctuary: Big Little...

    4.5 stars. When I first heard about this book I knew immediately that I wanted to read it. I'm a big fan of the author's previous YA Dark Gifts trilogy, written under the name Vic James and I love her writing, so I added 'Sanctuary' to my wish list straight away. It turned out to be...

    Review taken from The Pewter Wolf which will be going up in early May 2019. ***eProof gifted by UK Publisher, Gollancz via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review/reaction.*** The small town of Sanctuary, Connecticut is a perfect little town where everyone gets along. But be...

    Sanctury is a mystery novel following the death of a star athlete at a party in the small town of Sanctuary, a town with one witch. The narrative switches POVs between the parents, the kids, and the detective assigned to the case. This was my first time read V.V. James, though I wa...
  • Clephiro (The Book Coven)

    This quite possibly is one of the weirdest books I've read this year. It's a thriller that takes place in an urban fantasy setting. The best way I can describe this book is Pretty Little Liars as adults in a modern-day witch hunt. There's some pretty messed up stuff in this book, an...

    TWs: rape, sexual assault of minors, violence, domestic abuse, sexism. This is such a tense and thrilling mystery. The atmospheric small-town vibes and witchcraft had me hooked from page one. I was also lucky enough to be on the blog tour for this book! Check out my full review here...

    I picked up Sanctuary to read the first few chapters just to see what it was like, and I didn?t look up again until I was 150 pages in! It?s safe to say I was hooked from the beginning. When the star quarterback of the Sanctuary football team dies in what appears to be a tragic ...

    I'm grateful to Gallancz for an advance free copy of Sanctuary for review. You should be aware that I've included a significant spoiler which I think is necessary in order to give a content warning for the book. That is at the bottom of this review: if you want to avoid the spoiler ...

    Well it's ironic that as I came onto Goodreads to review this I had a 'like' notification about Daisy Jones & The Six. Ironic because just like that book I really enjoyed Sanctuary while hating almost every single character. Sanctuary is fascinating to read. It focuses on...

    Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a massive fan of Vic James so of course I was desperate to get my hands on her new book as soon as she hinted about it on twitter. Anything she writes is bound to have me hooked and her description of the new witchy thriller meant I couldn't wait to...

    Thank you to Gollancz and Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I really loved the Dark Gifts trilogy so when I heard about this book I so excited to read it! And I really loved this book too! This book had me hooked from the beginning and on the edge of my sea...

    You all are well aware of how much I love Vic's books so I've been anticipating Sanctuary a lot, stalking the GoodReads page for any information about it and then practically going feral at the Gollancz Blogger Evening whenVic told us all about the book, her inspirations for it and so ...

    I?ve found that the more I love a book, the harder it is for me to put into words why I love it. And just about all I can say about this book is-I really loved it. I loved that every 30 pages I felt like-?well, that solves it! Case closed...wait WHAT?? The twists and turns were ...

    The problem was that I found none of the point of view characters interesting, others around them such as the cops boss, the witches friend and daughter were way more captivating characters. And of course Abigail, didn't like her before she went psycho although she's the character yo...

    Sanctuary paints a brilliant portrait of small town America where local politics, alliances and feuds are everything - the outside world might just as well not exist. The stage therefore is ideally set for a murder investigation that spirals out of control and quickly involves the whol...

    I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I?m going to lead with the trigger warnings - Sanctuary includes rape including the rape of a minor by an older minor. It is mostly seen second hand but is shown on page. This is sort of an urban fantasy but ...

    The first thing I did after I finished Sanctuary was preorder a signed, limited edition copy from Goldsboro Books and that, in itself, tells you everything you need to know about how much fun I had reading this book. My review could end here but, because I love chatting about books so ...

    This book just didn?t sit right with me. I didn?t particularly enjoy the writing style, the characters felt bland and the plot rather messy... really loved the premise and wish I could?ve enjoyed this book more! ...

    This book was completely different to how I expected it. Witches, friendship, family. death. Told through the eye of various characters and through different mediums this was a brilliant read. By the end of the read, I felt real love and affection for many of the characters and with...

    Well I was not prepared to love this as much as I did!!! I've seen this book described as contemporary fantasy but I think that's underselling it, this is one of the best whodunnit/detective stories I've read, it just has a contemporary fantasy element (which I also loved!) I will b...
