Rating: 4 out of 5

Synopsis: Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she’s fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it’s time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it’s how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren’t as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.

The Girl at Midnight is an intricate story of belonging, quests, friendship, betrayal and power. A modern world with fantasy elements jam-packed with adventure hope, romance, loyalty and fire.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Synopsis: The breathtaking start to a seductive high-fantasy from New York Times bestselling author of Throne of Glass series.

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price.

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

 

Review: Sarah J. Maas never fails to impress, and with the addition of A Court of Thorns and Roses to her collection of titles comes yet another book to cement your love for Sarah’s ability to create a unique and wonderful world.

Review: The Fire Sermon (The Fire Sermon, #1) – Francesca Haig

Release Date: February 23rd 2015
Published By: HarperVoyager
Pages: 423
Goodreads: Add it to your reading list
Purchase: Click here to purchase

Rating: 4 out of 5

Synopsis: When Zach and I were born our parents must have counted and recounted: limbs, fingers, toes. We were perfect. They would have been disbelieving: nobody dodged the split between Alpha and Omega.
Nobody.

They were born together and they will die together.

One strong Alpha twin and one mutated Omega; the only thing they share is the moment of their death.

The Omegas live in segregation, cast out by their families as soon as their mutation becomes clear. Forced to live apart, they are ruthlessly oppressed by their Alpha counterparts.

The Alphas are the elite. Once their weaker twin has been cast aside, they’re free to live in privilege and safety, their Omega twin far from their thoughts.

Cass and Zach are both perfect on the outside: no missing limbs, no visible Omega mutation. But Cass has a secret: one that Zach will stop at nothing to expose.

The potential to change the world lies in both their hands. One will have to defeat the other to see their vision of the future come to pass, but if they’re not careful both will die in the struggle for power.

Review: In this post-apocalyptic world, there are lots of side effects of “The Blast”, but most notably is the fact that everyone is born a twin. One boy and one girl. One Alpha and one Omega. One perfect twin and one deformed. And while the Alphas would like nothing more than to remove their poisonous other half, they cannot as the Omegas are tied to their own mortality. The Alphas and Omegas are born together, and they will die together.

Review: City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) – Cassandra Clare

Release Date: May 27th 2014
Published By: Margaret K. McElderry Book
Pages: 725
Goodreads: Add it to your reading list
Purchase: Click here to purchase

Rating: 3 out of 5

Synopsis: In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris – but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee – even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned…

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!

Review: This review contains spoilers for the previous books in ‘The Mortal Instruments’ series.

The dramatic conclusion for The Mortal Instruments has arrived. We left City of Lost Souls with Sebastian planning on destroying the world with the help of his newly made Endarkened ones. Sebastian left the Nephilim with a message “ΕRCHOMAI” – I am coming. But now, another has been received - I have come. Sebastian is out to destroy the world that does not love him, to burn down the world that rejects him and nothing in this world can stop him.
