City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments Book 3) Review

Hello all,

So let's continue on with the Mortal Instruments.

Blurb- City of Glass

To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters - never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City - whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third instalment of the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.

Review: 4/5

What I Expected: A fast-paced intense next part of the story that would leave me gasping for air as that is what I thought I would get. I have been reading this series since trying the show. I was expecting something that would make me so happy that I picked it up.

What I Got: I wasn't sure what I was getting at first as it gained speed I was enjoying it more then it peaked off. This could have been two books and this wasn't even close to what I was expecting to get.

Review: Right away we have Jace and Clary imploding. simon's put in the clave prison after being taken to Iris because he was in mortal danger. That was when we are introduced to the rather creepy character called Sebastian. Not much wow factors to begin with however a good pace.

There is an attack on the city which was done with a great deal of care and was interesting. Like the different point of view of the attack. There is a great deal of funny banter of Magnus who seems to end up in the midst of things. Simon's rescue is at the forefront of everyone's minds except Clary who's making her way towards Iris.

The adding of Hodge again was a nice touch and how he was presented was well thought out. Seeing how Max is killed off is well written and will make you sad. Questions are being answered well through this part of the novel. Its well thought out how Valentine returns/demands changes that benefit him.

Simon and Isabella find some humour in the darkness that surrounds everyone at Max's death. Jace is concerning with his behaviour. When Clary and Jace meet up again as there is a very sweet moment yet there is an edge of danger.

Jace decides to go on a solo mission that allows us to see more of what is going on inside him. From there we see the return of Jocelyn. That sparks off a power ceg of emotion. A fight with Isabella and Clary is broken up by her mother's return. She explodes at her mother which leads her leaving.

Simon goes to find her and there is a realisation in their conversation, which leads a passionate speech that Clary makes to the clave. The wait to see if it will work to save their lives. Simon shows off his tricks he's learned as a vampire which lightens the mood. Jocely comes out and leads to a heart to heart chat with Clary. This answers a lot of the questions that readers of this series have.

There points they discuss is Luke's change, Jonathan's birth, the start of her relationship with Valentine in the first place. His experiments on Jocelyn and Clary, how Jocelyn thwarted the uprising. How close Valentine is to being a warlock. Valentine's realisation about Jonathan. Jocelyn reveals to Clary that she has met Jonathan already. He's posing as Sebastian Verlac.

Jocelyn and Clary are interrupted by Luke, he's proud of her. She awaits the beginning of the matching ceremony between Shadowhunters and Downworlders. She notices that Magnus is not himself. The gathering for them to match and it begins with a great deal of reluctance.

Alec partners with Magnus where they share a very public kiss. There is shocked reactions all around, by Shadowhunters and his parents. Clary and Isabella is proud of Alec.

Raphael appears in a ghost-like form to say he would fight to Jocelyn and Like if they return Simon to him. They have an argument about this but they don't know that Simon is eavesdropping on it. Simon begs to go to Raphael and Clary give him a rune to protect him. She's shell-shocked he would do this for everyone else. Simon's marked with the mark of Cain and meets with Raphael after being escorted by his girlfriend Mia.

Jace finds Valentine and Sebastian where he overhears their plans. Sebastian confronts Jace the moment Valentine is gone. He overpowers Jace and ties him up. Feeding his ego he makes Jace watch as he releases the demons who will be under Valentine's control. He tortures Jace while telling more about their plans. How they are going to destroy the clave and rebuild.

Clary waits in the hall of the accords for news of the battle against Valentine. The ceiling shatters as the vampires who are rushing to the battle also pause with the sight they see. They fly across the sky in a red streak through black paint.

Back with Jace and Sebastian, they fight leaving Jace mortally wounded. Isabella comes to Jace who in turn saves her after Sebastian tries to kill her.

Simon is forced to join the battlefield. He is forced to unleash the true vampire that lives inside him and give into the darkness to survive.

Clary discovers that Malachi is a circle member and has betrayed the clave. Hugin kills Malachi after he turns on the bird. Clary teleports to Lake Lyn and is captured by her father. She is forced to watch over her father summoning the angel Raziel. She writes a rune so the wish is hers without him seeing after he kills Jace in front of her.

The angel arrives and after a back and forth argument he kills Valentine. She wishes for Jace to be alive and the wish is granted. She wakes up in Jace's arms. Jace falls and wakes up next to the hospital and is let out to attend his father's funeral.

Clary and Isabelle share each other's company trying to lift her spirits. She talks Clary into going to the celebrations that are going to be going on. They end up going to the party.

Jace comes looking for Clary but instead, he finds Armtis who tells him what his birthmark means. She gives him the treasure box that she made when she was with his father Stephan Herondale. She explains why Imogen (Grandmother), Inquisitor saved him. He leaves sometime later.

Clary overhears Luke telling Jocelyn that he loves her Only her mother says nothing, Luke ends up storming out. Luke storms out not caring that Clary overheard it all. Armitis drags out of Jocelyn how she really feels about Luke. Clary helps to send her mother after Luke to tell him that she loves him.

Clary borrows the dress from Armtis's trunk. She meets up with Isabella, Miara and Simon. He's okay with the mark despite her concerns. Simon and Clary make a deal to remain best friends no matter what. They attend the party and Clary searches for Jace. She talks to him helping him understand who he is. After a nudge from Clary, he declares his love for her. They are all enjoying the part.

Seelie Queen wants a favour, Clary says no.

Those are my honest thoughts and I am grateful for the chance to share them with all of you.


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the review,

Crooked Kingdom: A Sequel to Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo Review

Hello all, 

Welcome back and we are diving into the world of Kaz Bekker and his crew. I wonder what your going to think of this. 

Crooked Kingdom  by Leigh Bardugo
The #1 New York Times-bestselling sequel to Leigh Bardugo's thrilling Six of Crows.
When you can’t beat the odds, change the game.
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city's dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world.

4/5 Stars

What I Expected: I expected a punch filled story that made me want to stay up all night. I was hoping for a better story than the first one. I hoped to see more schemes, learn more about the characters and their world. To understand the elements that made this crew hang onto each other.

What I Got:  I wasn't sure at first what I had gotten so I let myself be dragged deeper into the world of magic, heists, crime and evening the odds. I was hoping that this book would be snappier than the last one. I just didn't get the love from this one that I got in her first book Six of Crows. To me this book felt like it should be two. There was two high points that would be great for two books, but I was sad that they didn't do that with this book. That is just my thoughts.

Review: The book had a slow start however I liked the opening scheme. The hide out was well chosen in my mind. Kaz has an emotional start to this book that I liked. Inej's realistic fears and reactions, even the impending doom are done very well. Seeing the Wraith shaken to her core got the story running and it gave the book legs.

Nina's struggle was put together really well and it does have the feel of an addict. It starts to tie up the the loose ends of the first book. The trade however was predictable and still just managed to be done well. I like how Van Eck's wife's singing becomes torturous for the group. The mass unplanned attack was interesting. It added some danger however I thought it was forgotten in the rest of the book.

Flying Shu is really exciting for me.

Seeing Inej attempts to fit back into the life she was ripped from was put together as seamless as lego bricks. I think this is what makes her role in the book stand out more than the others.

Kaz hints at his feelings for Inej and I found myself wanting to see them develop. The author manages to move the book quickly into a scheme with Pek Haskell. This seemed unwise to me. You are left feeling helpless but to watch it unfold before your eyes.

Nina demands they save the Grisha, this could have been another book in my opinion. She discovers more about her new powers and having to deal with not being who she has always known. Her story slots into Wylan mulling over his past and it was a good way to put his backstory into the book.

At the embassy Nina meets with refugees, her new power grows. Learning more about Kaz's plan like a bread crumb. Understanding that the crew are now wanted and have high rewards on their heads.

Jesper shares more of his history with us, how goodbyes are not goodbyes to him. There is much more to this gunslinger than people think.

Jesper, Mathias and Kweui are ambushed at the tomb, where they use Grisha magic to get away. They relay on each other to be safe. Matthias leads Kweui and Jesper to safety. They have a realization about who, what he is.

Inej and Nina's mission doesn't go to plan. Inej contemplates her own history that seems to be haunting her. she gets caught dealing damage to the silos and almost is thrown into a silo. Inej meets Ketterdam's newest assassin. She is out smarted and finds herself being out done. Meanwhile Nina is summoning zombie's to her aid.

Kaz with Wylan to get the seal of his father so they can carry out the next part of their plan. The great advice that they give each other. Only they find themselves ambushed by Per Haskell and his people. Kaz's escape with Wylan, first thoughts Kaz has is for Inej.

Kaz, Wylan, Nina, Rooty and Inej meet up. They move to a hotel suite to hide out. The gang turns on Kaz. He and Jesper get into a fist fight. Jesper is then forced to talk to his father. When he thinks that things can't get any worse. He kisses Kweui thinking he's Wylan. He's caught by Wylan.

The group form a new plan. That is when Jesper's father gets involved. The plan's complete with his help. Kaz hints more about his feelings towards Inej. He has a chat with her. He allows himself to show concern even guilt. That is when we learn more about Wraith 2.0.

Kaz tries to overcome his fear of touching people by changing Inej's bandages. The touch of his skin against hers changes the pair of them forever. Kaz kisses her neck and becomes unglued with his own past. After feeling this he finds him coming up with a suicide mission to take back the Dreggs or die trying.

In the gang's house he endures a bad battle. Kaz endures all they can throw at him as he retakes the gang.

Meanwhile Wylan is tailored back to his old self. When he's finally alone with Jesper he kisses him and tells him how much he cares for him. The Grisha makes a point to heal some of Kaz's worst injuries.

They start a new scheme with Jesper's dad at the heart of it. Nina helps him force the Merchant Council into a corner. Kaz fights with his "help" and injuries as things start to go the way he planned. Kaz makes  deal with the Rakva king. He continues to find his mind unable to let got of his past. Part of the reason he wears gloves and can't take them off. Its a big repeat if you have read book one. Its repeated a lot in this book too.

Wylan does this mission for his mother who he's found and believes is worthy. He receives Jesper's blessing to be with his son. That gives him a lot of strength and makes him feel worthwhile. He's kidnapped by his father where he is tortured and gives up Kaz's plans.

Inej lays out the escape route for the crew. She watches the Auction start. How the tide council gets involved. Kaz is cleared out. Pekka Rollins and Jan Van Eck in tatters. Inej bearly survives the attack by the other assassin. She just makes it in time to meet Jesper but he's not where he is meant to be.

Jesper fights off his own ambush by the Shu. He takes a ounce in a lifetime shot which is helped by Inej. Kaz takes down Pekk Rollins once and for all.

Nina uses dead flesh to create mayhem in the barrel. She misses her old powers. What her peers might think of her now.

Matthias returns to Nina and dies. They give Matthias barrel respect.

Nina pledges to take him to the North and lay him to rest there.

They all go their own ways.

Kaz gets a visit from the Tide Council three weeks later when on his way to see Inej. She and Kaz meet up where he reveals her family. He's got her a boat, his love for her. She kills Pekka Rollins.

Those are my honest thoughts and I am grateful for the chance to share them with all of you.


Thank you again for stopping by.

Dracula: The Rise of The Beast Book Review.

Hello all, 

Today lets dive into a book for NetGallery. 

Dracula: The Rise of The Beast. 

Blurb: Anthology of stories exploring the secret history of the world’s most iconic monster 

That the cruel, ambitious monster of Bram Stoker’s most famous novel was once Vlad III Drăcula, Voivode of Wallachia – the Impaler, to his enemies – is known. A warleader in a warlike time: brilliant, charismatic, pious, ferociously devoted to his country. But what came of him? What drove him to become a creature of darkness – an Un-Dead – and what use did he make of this power, through the centuries before his downfall?

Decades after the monster’s death, Jonathan and Mina Harker’s son Quincey pieces together the story: dusty old manuscripts, court reports from the Holy Roman Empire at its height, oral traditions among the Szgany Roma people who once served the monster.

David Thomas Moore, editor of Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets and Monstrous Little Voices, brings together five new and established authors with roots in Central and Eastern Europe to reveal a side to the literary world’s greatest monster never seen before.

4/5 Stars

What I Expected: A vampire take on history to do with Dracula and those to whom he sired or others that might have learned how to survive with them. I expected to sink into the world of Dracula and feel the great excitement that comes with this sort of book.

What I Got:  A series of disjointed stories that didn't really work as well as I had hoped. I started having to read them like they were stand alones which is not what I thought I was getting.

Review: The book has many points of view at the beginning it starts  out with part one that is long winded. Sometimes dragging in parts. This made the enjoyment hard at times. There was humor only I wasn't able to get a lot of it. Lots of parts lost me.

Part two tying the story to the countess that was legendary at around the same time as Dracula was interesting and made me feel like the book picked up. There wasn't much of Dracula in this part though, which I think would have made it truly shine. Other characters seem to become forgotten in the shuffle. It had a strong ending, this is where I realized that they were single stories not whole ones.

Part three: Had a very jerky start to it. It wasn't holding my attention well at the beginning and found it a hard fought battle to not want to pick up other books. The mixture of witch, hunter and business man became interesting as the story progressed. Even if it was disjointed and felt like a big let down after part two.

The fourth part to me seemed to lack a hook, very disjointed and slow at times. It dragged to begin with. You witness his personal struggles. Siring three children with a succubus.

After so long he finds a town that he has hidden from him for so long and the hardships it now faced. It's a very strange take on the folk lore. What made it nice was how well the birth and change in him was done. The creation of a new legend.

The final part of the book we saw a hunters point of view, I like the gypy element and how well it was done. How they had looked at the way the hunter had to earn the gypys trust, staying at the castle or estate. The curse that is explained in detail. Journalist dies before the article can be finished and I was saddened at this point.

It doesn't move flawlessly into the letters from the descendants. Lolo's meeting and cliffhanger ending with Dracula was rushed and just not what I hoped for this book at the end.

Those are my honest thoughts and I am grateful for the chance to share them with all of you.


Thank you for stopping by and I hope to hear back from you at your earliest convenience,

The Woman In The Woods Book Review

Hello All, 

So my adult fictional novel for the month was no other than The Woman In The Woods by Lesley Pearse someone I respect alot and she is my buy right away without reading the blurb. 

Fifteen-year-old twins Maisy and Duncan Mitcham have always had each other. Until the fateful day in the wood . . . One night in 1960, the twins awake to find their father pulling their screaming mother from the house. She is to be committed to an asylum. It is, so their father insists, for her own good. It's not long before they, too, are removed from their London home and sent to Nightingales - a large house deep in the New Forest countryside - to be watched over by their cold-hearted grandmother, Mrs Mitcham. Though they feel abandoned and unloved, at least here they have something they never had before - freedom. The twins are left to their own devices, to explore, find new friends and first romances. That is until the day that Duncan doesn't come back for dinner. Nor does he return the next day. Or the one after that. When the bodies of other young boys are discovered in the surrounding area the police appear to give up hope of finding Duncan alive. With Mrs Mitcham showing little interest in her grandson's disappearance, it is up to Maisy to discover the truth. And she knows just where to start. The woman who lives alone in the wood about whom so many rumours abound. A woman named Grace Deville. The Woman in the Wood is a powerful, passionate and sinister tale of a young woman's courage, friendship and determination. Santa Montefiore and Penny Vincenzi fans will swiftly fall for Lesley Pearse's mesmerising novels - you'll want to read them again and again . . . 'Heart-warming and evocative, a real delight to read' Sun 'A narrative that gallops along, this is quintessential Pearse that will delight her army of readers' Daily Mail 'Glorious, heartwarming' Woman & Home 'Evocative, compelling, told from the heart' Sunday Express


5/5 Stars

What I Expected: Was a historical tale about a woman who lives in the woods and has had a hard life. I expected that maybe she was the one being sent away and what I got wasn't even close to what I expected. I must admit Lesley Pearse outdid herself with this book.

What I Got:  A traumatic, wonderful tale of growth from two young children that have a seriously hard time, however, find solace and help from Grace who is a woman they hear is a mad woman living in the woods. The real danger was going to be closer to home and they were about to have their innocence ripped from them over a summer.

Review: I found that the woman in the woods is often forgotten. Lesley manages to draw out some very strong emotions from her readers in this great tale. It makes you question family and friendships. Seeing Maisy grow into her character was one of the many highlights of this book. Random insight from the murder made it feel a little jerky at times. Softening of the harsh grandmother to the child was a nice turn in the book. Seeing Grace become who she was meant to be was heartfelt and lightening. The constant downfall of Grainger was well done and thought out. There is a really nice touch done with Maisy near the end. A very well out together story that deserves every star it earned.


I hope that you will come back to see what other authors I might cover on this blog.

Percy Jackson and The Titan's Curse - Book Review

Hello All, 

Lets jump into the next book in the Percy Jackson Series. Percy Jackson and The Titan Curse. 

Half Boy. Half God. ALL Hero.
It's not every day you find yourself in combat with a half-lion, half-human.

But when you're the son of a Greek God, it happens. And now my friend Annabeth is missing, a Goddess is in chains and only five half-blood heroes can join the quest to defeat the doomsday monster.
Oh and guess what. The Oracle has predicted that not all of us will survive . . .
The Greek Gods are alive and kicking - go to www.rickriordanmythmaster.co.uk and see for yourself.



/5 Stars

What I Expected: I wasn't sure I was expecting to much from this book. I was scared that he would love steam with the series as this can often happen with authors when they get by the exciting first two books.

What I Got:  A girl driven story where Percy managed to also play a role in. There was a great detail to what goes on between the female warriors and the mission they end up on.

Review: I was worried at times that Percy was going to be shoved out of this book instead he managed to stay in it and was not just there for the sake of being there. I liked the part about the hunters, to see the female Gods in this story setting. I think its set up for a great ending to the series. I can't wait to dive into book 4 and 5.


Thank you so much for your time and I hope that you will come back to see the other books I have reviewed.

The Cruel Prince By Holly Black Book Review

Hello All,

This review is a little late as life gets in the way sometimes and that was true for me. Anyway, let's get down to the new release that became a best seller.

The Cruel Prince 

"Lush, dangerous, a dark jewel of a book . . . intoxicating" - Leigh Bardugo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows

Of course I want to be like them. They're beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

One terrible morning, Jude and her sisters see their parents murdered in front of them. The terrifying assassin abducts all three girls to the world of Faerie, where Jude is installed in the royal court but mocked and tormented by the Faerie royalty for being mortal. 

As Jude grows older, she realises that she will need to take part in the dangerous deceptions of the fey to ever truly belong.

But the stairway to power is fraught with shadows and betrayal. And looming over all is the infuriating, arrogant and charismatic Prince Cardan . . . 

Enter the dramatic and thrilling world of the Folk of the Air, brimful of magic and romance from New York Times bestselling author Holly Black.


4/5 Stars

What I Expected: A fairy world that was a lot like the one that Melissa Marr created. I was excited to get into the heart of another fairy world and for some reason, I really thought I would love it. I had seen it on booktube a lot. To me, this was going to be an exciting fantasy novel to take my mind off my own life struggles.

What I Got:  A tragic story that was gripping but at times hard to keep myself in the heart of it with the pacing slowing at certain points. I was hoping for more that I can't explain or really say what I wanted just found the book leaving me feeling at times unfulfilled.

Review: What I got was a politically driven book that tackled bullying between mortals and fairy. We see the betrayal between the twin sisters and an older one struggling with not sure which world to be in. The want for the twins new father who is the father of the old sister to accept them. They try to find a place in court and this was something that most teenagers would understand. I love that most of the storyline can be tied back to the struggles most of us face every day. It was a well-written book that I just wished had been more attention-grabbing at points.


Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you again soon,

'Completely captivating storytelling, fascinating and compelling characters - I loved it' Luana Lewis, author of Don't Stand So Close'
'A rollercoaster of dramatic twistsElizabeth Haynes

5/5 Stars 

What I Expected: A bone chilling, exciting read that would have me on the edge of my seat. A dangerous murder that would make me wonder who done it.

What I Got: Was a multi POV that was hard to follow in the beginning then made sense by the end. It was thrilling, had some areas that were a little hard to read which I suspect was the point. This by past what I heard the author could do.

Review: This book will take you on one hell of an emotional ride. You will not want to put it down and get on with real life. It was the perfect escape as far as I was concerned. This has to be the best wrapped up book that I have read in the suspense, thriller, murder mystery genre in a while. I heard a lot about the author coming in and was scared that she wasn't going to live up to the hype as a lot of readers find. This author out did herself and left me more excited that I have put some of her other books in my basket on Amazon. I just fell in love with the voice that she gave her characters and the small bits that showed off the accents or way people might talk made the book really good to me. I can safely say that its not who you think that is responsable for the actual murder. I can't wait to tell all my family about this book and will be buying copies for them. It was a well earned 5/5 stars.


Thank you or stopping by to see what I thought of this arc. I can't wait to share more of my thoughts on the arcs I get from NetGallery.
