ARC Review // The Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman

The teenagers of Four Paths must save their home, in the sequel to hit fantasy The Devouring Gray. For fans of Stranger Things, Riverdale and The Raven Cycle

Though the Beast is seemingly subdued for now, a new threat looms in Four Paths: a corruption seeping from the Gray into the forest. And with the other Founders preoccupied by their tangled alliances and fraying relationships, only May Hawthorne seems to realize the danger. But saving the town she loves means seeking aid from the person her family despises most–her and Justin’s father.

May’s father isn’t the only newcomer in town–Isaac Sullivan’s older brother has also returned, seeking forgiveness for the role he played in Isaac’s troubled past. But Isaac isn’t ready to let go of his family’s history, especially when that history might hold the key that he and Violet Saunders need to destroy the Gray and the monster within it.

Harper Carlisle isn’t ready to forgive, either. Two devastating betrayals have left her isolated from her family and uncertain who to trust. As the corruption becomes impossible to ignore, Harper must learn to control her newfound powers in order to protect Four Paths. But the only people who can help her do that are the ones who have hurt her the most.

With the veil between the Gray and the town growing ever thinner, all of the Founder descendants must put their grievances with one another aside to stop the corruption and kill the Beast once and for all.

But maybe the monster they truly need to slay has never been the Beast…

Thanks to Titan Books for sending me an early proof copy to review!

Review & Unboxing / Tomorrowland: The Book of Wisdom by Sarah Maria Griffin

Review & Unboxing / Tomorrowland: The Book of Wisdom by Sarah Maria Griffin

Hi guys!
I’ve got a bit of a different style of review for you all today…

Is anyone else a collector? Whether it be of different editions of the same book, every copy of a certain authors works, or bookish merch for a certain fandom, I’m definitely guilty of it. A few weeks ago, Lauren and I decided we just had to finish our almost complete Sarah Maria Griffin collections – and for us, this meant hunting down the Book of Wisdom she recently wrote for Belgian music festival Tomorrowland. These were sent out to attendees with their wristband tickets, but after a late night eBay trawl, we managed to find someone selling two of the English copies. They arrived the week before last in their gorgeous special edition boxes. So, here’s my unboxing/mini review!

(ps. this post is basically a tonne of photos of a gorgeous book)

Review // Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones

“Perhaps I loved the monstrous because I was a monster. Josef, the Goblin King, and me. We were grotesques in the world above, too different, too odd, too talented, too much. We were all too much.”
– S. Jae Jones, Shadowsong

“I can only live, either altogether with you or not at all.”
– Ludwig Van Beethoven, The Immortal Beloved Letters
