Clockwork Princess

Clockwork Princess

My Review Clockwork Princess is the final book in the Infernal Devices trilogy, the prequel series to the Mortal Instruments series.  It picked up right at the end of Clockwork Prince.  It was a beautiful end to a great series, with happy moments as well as sad. The action was just as fierce in this book with some truly […]

Clockwork Prince

Clockwork Prince

My Review I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first, Clockwork Angel.  Now that we know Tessa, Jem, and Will, their stories are even more poignant and beautiful.  We learn so much more about Will and his past that led him to where he is today.  We learn much of Tessa’s story, too, […]

Clockwork Angel

Clockwork Angel

My Review Clockwork Angel is the first in the prequel trilogy to the Mortal Instruments series, set in London during the late 1800s.  There are a lot of Shadowhunter family names that are recognizable if you have read the Mortal Instruments first, as well as a few characters that were seen in those books. The Shadowhunters of […]

A Dawn Most Wicked

My Review This is a short novella centered around Daniel Sheridan, a bit of a prequel that tells us a little bit about his past.  We meet his first love, Cass, and we learn how he came to be a part of the Spirit Hunters. In Something Strange and Deadly, it is clear that Daniel has […]

Something Strange and Deadly

Something Strange and Deadly

My Review Steampunk and zombies!  This may sound like an odd combination, but it is one that works!  Petticoats and parasols mixed with steam-powered machines and pulse bombs that kill zombies?  Yes, please! The story is set in the midst of Philadelphia’s high society in 1876, the time of chaperoned dates, petticoats, bustles, séances, and burgeoning […]

Perfect Ruin

Perfect Ruin

My Review Perfect Ruin is the first in a new dystopian series, The Internment Chronicles.  And it is an amazing beginning!   Lauren DeStefano is fantastic at what she does, creating dystopian worlds with just enough of our own reality mixed in to make it entirely believable.  There is definitely a bit of the science fiction […]
