Definitely not my normal genre of book but I had a chance to meet the author at the NEC where he was promoting his books and I zeroed in on this one first due to its cover first! He went on to tell me the plot and I was hooked!
I was able to get my mitts on this little novella at the end of June and I must say the only disappointment was that it was a novella!
The idea that we could “turn the corner” and never get old, or death not being the given outcome is a novel idea that we face in Scythe by Neil Shusterman.
From the very first moment of reading the blurb I was hooked into this book!
Let’s sneak into the lives of the Rich and Addicted……
“What is the use of temptations if we don’t yield to them?”
These books make me remember my days of boy-band concerts , bad boy crushes and poster kisses!
So everyone has heard that term “never judge a book by its cover”, and everyone knows how difficult that is! On this instance I bought this book purely based on its cover, I kept going back and eyeing it up! I broke down and bought it and I am so pleased to say that it was one of the best decisions ever!!
My recent visit to the YALC convention made sure that I brought home several new books to read. At the top of that list was Faceless by Alyssa Sheinmel, from the cover to the back blurb I could not wait to start this book-and there were a few that were vying for first read!!
Girl goes hunting and kills a wolf; wolf turns out to be a faerie in another form; girl is carted away to pay a blood debt and that, my friend, is just the start!
Feyre is the main character in this new and fresh series by Sarah J. Maas. She goes out hunting so she can support and feed her family. Unbeknownst to her there are darker forces at work than just the normal faerie problems. She is drawn into a world of faerie politics and half truths. Her captor turns out to be a truly complicated being, there’s love then there’s terror and all the while seeds of doubt swirl around Feyre’s mind. As the series progresses we meet a handful of delightful, menacing, enduring and ever changing characters. From the cold hearted sister, to the indifferent father, to the bad boy who might not be as bad as he seems, and the good guy who might be the bad boy in disguise. They all seem to have hidden agendas and they all seem to be out for themselves. With all this swirling around Feyre starts to learn what she is made of and who she can trust.Can she trust the man she thinks she’s in love with, or the man pulling the cruel strings of fate, or can she trust herself? In this series we see a tidal wave of emotions and plot twists and turns and more than a few OMG moments. We follow Feyre on a journey of salvation, inner reflection, love, loss, and sacrifice.
