Fantasy Book Haul

Hey y’all!

So I didn’t have a D&D game last week (or this week) so I went to Barnes and Nobles to get me some books because I was in a book slump and I was in a fantasy mood, so I went and got these amazing books that I know that I’m going to love.

The Assassin’s Blade: The Throne of Glass Novellas by Sarah J. Maas

I’m a HUGE fan of Sarah J. Maas ever since I’ve read Throne of Glass (if you haven’t seen my review, click here  and here to read them!) and I’ve always wanted to read more of her books, so I picked this one up-and I’m currently reading this book right now and I LOVE IT already.

Crown of Midnight: A Throne of Glass Novel by Sarah J. Maas

Just like the Assassin’s Blade, once I get done reading that one I’m going to get started reading this one (okay, maybe after my third re-read of Throne of Glass?) because I can’t WAIT to read more about Celeana and her friends’ adventures.

Book Review: The Fall of the House of Cabal by Jonathan L. Howard

The Fall of the House of Cabal (Johannes Cabal, #5)The Fall of the House of Cabal by Jonathan L. Howard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book…this book, this book, this book. The last novel of the Johannes Cabal novel…

It was FANTASTIC. I loved every bit of it and I really want Jonathan Howard to write more from this series because I’m starving for more and I just wanna read more about Cabal and Horst and Leonie and Zarenyia-everyone. And splitting it up to five parts…OMG I LOVED EACH AND EVERY PART. Espically the Great Detective part, when Horst became human for a moment and ate bacon while they were investigating the death of Maximilian Maleficarius, which was saddening and also a bit funny because of Horst eating the bacon…but I have to say, the star of the book has to be Madame Zarenyia, my sister from another mister.

Even her quotes were funny and spot on:

“You’re telling me,’ muttered Zarenyia, drifting at the edge of consciousness. ‘Johannes has one, you know. Terribly clever with it. He got me my sweater. Lots of fish. So many fish.’ Her voice faded into sub-vocalized semi-words.”

“Hello darlings!“ said Zarenyia as she breezed back into Satan’s throne room, a shambling, scuttling sound in her wake assuring her that Ratuth Slabuth was following. ‘Forms signed, bona fides authenticated. You will be delighted to hear that I am now declared a legal visitor to the scenic heart of Hell. Hooray for me!”

“Scrawny creatures, aren’t they? Still, a soul’s a soul.’ She sighed. ‘I am making myself ever so available, and I’m getting for my troubles is a lot of frightened looks and scuttling. Haven’t they ever seen a gorgeous woman before?”

“Do you suppose this is part of the trap, too?’ Zarenyia weighed up the possibilities. “I must say, as traps go it’s a little bit lazy, isn’t it? Tiny it short in the bait department. Why would we want to go in there?’ She squinted, her inhuman senses apparently able to make something out of the pervading shadow. ‘Oh, it’s all right, after all. It’s not trying to get us to go in. It’s letting something out. Much better.”

And the ending, when Horst because of dhampir (yay!!!) and I FINALLY found out that woman in the coffin’s name (Berenice, what a lovely name) and I really do reconmend this series a whole lot!!

Book Review: Someone to Watch Over Me by Lisa Kleypas

Someone to Watch Over Me (Bow Street Runners, #1)Someone to Watch Over Me by Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I haven’t read a romance novel in a long time, and I wanted something different to read while I’m reading the other books I’m currently reading at the moment, and Someone to Watch Over Me came at the right time and I loved every single moment of it. I honestly cheered for Grant and Vivien/Victoria, because he stupidly thought she was Vivien the courtesan, which turned out to be her twin sister-trust me, I was shocked myself when I read that part-and then reading how they slowly but surely fall in love…

But the mystery behind Vivien/Victoria was…well, how can I put it….the mystery behind who wanted Vivien dead was a really stupid one. I mean, to hire a Bow Street Runner to do it? Really? Like…I thought the Lord Lane would hire someone from the street to do it…but to actually get a Bow Street Runner to do it? I was actually appalled by it, because it seemed to me that he didn’t want to kill Vivien himself after what she did to his son and grandson, so he hired someone else to do it-and it was someone Grant knew….

At the end I loved the book and would really recommend it to anyone.
