Magic Bleeds

Magic Bleeds

My Review I think Magic Bleeds, the fourth novel in the Kate Daniels series, is my favorite.  I loved everything about this book.  The story, the characters, the mythology, the action.  All of it combined to make a novel that was hard to put down! Kate Daniels is probably my favorite female protagonist.  She is fierce […]

Magic Mourns

Magic Mourns

My Review Magic Mourns is a companion novella in the Kate Daniels series.  This one tells the story of Andrea Nash, Kate’s best friend and a Knight of the Order. Although Kate is in the book, this story is almost exclusively about Andrea.  While it is possible to enjoy the series without reading this, I personally […]

Magic Strikes

Magic Strikes

My Review This series just gets better and better!  Magic Strikes is the third book in the Kate Daniels series and I loved it just as much as the others. In this one, Kate has been drafted to work in the Order as a sort of liaison between the Pack and the Order.  She is […]

Magic Burns

Magic Burns

My Review Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series and I loved it just about as much as I did the first.  Magic comes and goes unpredictably in the world of Kate Daniels, but every seven years there is a magic flare.  During those times, the magic runs wild and brings […]

Magic Bites

Magic Bites

My Review I don’t read a lot of urban fantasy, but I loved Magic Bites!  The action is fantastic and it features a badass heroine.  Mix that with a ton of paranormal lore and mythology, and it is a truly engrossing read. The world of Kate Daniels is a post-apocalyptic one, but different from most in […]

Extras

Extras

My Review Extras is the unexpected final book in the Uglies series, following what was originally touted as a trilogy.  The series is set in a dystopian future in which the ideas of beauty and conformity are the central ideals of the society.  This book takes place a few years after Tally’s story ended and centers on Aya […]

Specials

My Review I have such mixed emotions about this book.  It was originally supposed to be the final book in a trilogy, although there is now a fourth book in which Tally appears as a non-central character.  So, even though this ended up not being the final book, it is really the final book in […]

Pretties

Pretties

My Review I truly love this series!  The world is a dystopian society based on the ideals of beauty.  It is a society that redefined beauty as a conforming concept, a society in which everyone’s entire worth is based on their beauty.  The fact that beauty is a manufactured ideal, rather than natural, is of […]

Uglies

Uglies

My Review My favorite thing about dystopian fiction is their ability to give me a different perspective on our world, culture, and society.  Dystopian novels push me to really consider the world that we live in and see a little bit of our reality in the dystopian world, to see the potential for what our world could […]

End of Days

End of Days

My Review End of Days is the final book in this amazing series, and I am sad to see it end, so much so that now I have my son reading it so we can talk about it!!  The conclusion was everything I wanted it to be. It begins just after World After ends and so much has […]
