Review – GRAVE MERCY

Review – GRAVE MERCY

Review: From the first page, I was at the mercy of the book. It captured me in a way that not many books have. Grave Mercy starts off in a way, that by the first page, there was already a couple of questions swirling around my head. Questions made me want to keep reading. I wasn’t satisfied until I finished the book. By then, I was already looking forward to the next book, Dark Triumph. From the very beginning it was obvious that Grave Mercy […]

Review – CARRIER OF THE MARK

Review – CARRIER OF THE MARK

Review: There are many different words I can use to describe Carrier of the Mark. Boring is not one of them. However, unfortunately, familiar is. As good as the plot was, I virtually already knew what was going to happen next. It seems a bit like Josephine Angelini’s Starcrossed. Except, Starcross involves Greek mythology, while Carrier of the Mark has it’s own. Carrier of the Mark is about a girl, Megan, who just moved to Ireland. Starting after her mother’s death in a car accident, […]

The is told in the three different voices of Lillia, Kat, and Mary. Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian did a wonderful job crafting the characters.

Before Reading I… WARNING: This review contains spoilers for The Son of Neptune. After reading The Son of Neptune, I could not wait for the next book.

How […]
