A Female Assassin?!

Throughout the whole of this past week, I have been enclosed in the world of fantasy and of course female assassins! I'm sorry, but it seems to me now that since I have played on the Assassin Creed games, somehow having female lead assassins seem next to nonexistent. Which is okay I guess. But it is always good to broaden those horizons. I'm not against women being lead characters; really I don't care. As long as they have a strong lead and not annoying to read I'm very happy. Extremely happy in fact. But hey, why am I talking on about society? I am and I'm sure you are more interested in how this book worked out.

Genre: Fantasy,Dystopian
Publisher: Bloomsbury



When having that good old session of reading, I felt a few vibes coming out of it. I'm not sure if some readers have felt the same way but it was like there was a bit of the Hunger Games, The Selection as well as the classic Grimms tale of Cinderella. There was a bit of a love triangle as well as a bit of action, which is completely fine as long as there is a good balance between them. Which I guess there was.

I give it overall a 3.5 stars well it's more than the rating usually is. So that is good. It was quite hard to get into during the start and when you actually buy the book, rather than get it from the local library, ypy kind of have to read it. Otherwise what is the point in buying it? The story itself is like there was a girl who is the assassin but she was caught. Her punishment for this is to work down in the mines, until she gets called to go into a competition to become the Kings champion. It kinda shows the progression of her journey and how she overcomes hurdles throughout the whole concept of the competition during the plot. I may get the next book in the series but I'm not so sure yet, as I have plenty of other books to read as well as commitments. But hey, you never know in the near future I could be reviewing the next book in the saga!

Next time,

The Gods have spoken! - Mythos by Stephen Fry

I love mythology. That is a fact that many people know in my life. So when I found out that the brilliant mind of Stephen Fry was going to write a book on Greek mythology, I couldn't have been more ecstatic. In three words: perfect bedtime stories.

Did it excel my expectations?

Well, I guess that you could say yeah.

I understand that some people did not like the way that it was written in such simple 'Fry way'. But I found that much more funny.

You see, I find that there is nothing better than drama. In fact, as social beings we all have a certain feel about it. It is something that breathes life within all of us.


You see, you can feel the absolute significance of why a book like this should be read. It brings us back to a time where stories of such marvellous wonders exist. That there is hope out there. That there is a reason why certain events happen as they do.

A reason. That is all we need to keep going on.

So, as I began reading Mythos, it took me back to a time when …

Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga

When I look at 'Here we are now' I think of a fair few things. First of all, there is not many father/daughter relationship type YA books on the market at the moment. Secondly, I thought that it would be interesting to see how such a relationship between father and daughter, with the added stress of the Dad being famous adds to the hype of this type of story.

However, when delving into the book itself, it felt as though it was more about the relationship between her father and mother, rather than the main protagonist herself. In fact, it seemed as though the main character was pushed to the side so much, due to the flashbacks, that it felt as though she was a weak supporting character. To this day, it feels as though I haven't really understood what Taliah (the supposed main character) was all about and her mind processes, that we usually see with other beloved characters.

Throughout the book I had found that for the plot itself, I felt as though it was far too short for a…

Cover Reveal: Miranda's Rights by Lily Luchesi

So merry Christmas to all! With only Christmas Day finally on the horizon! I hope you all remember Lily Luchesi from earlier this year! Where I did a cover reveal and review. You would be glad to know now, that once again I have the priveledge to reveal the cover of the sequel to Stake Out and will be able to review in the new year!


Miranda’s Rights (Paranormal Detectives Book Two) by Lily Luchesi


The dead don’t always rest easy... Retired detective Danny Mancini is haunted by nightmares after he found out that paranormal creatures exist. All he wants is to forget them…especially a certain half-vampire. When cursed werewolves show up trying to kill him, he is forced to go back to the Paranormal Investigative Division for help against a powerful old enemy. What he was not expecting was a dead ex showing back up after twenty-six years.
My own view of the book itself is refreshing. Not only is it a sequel book to the story, Stake-out, but also that by the look of the cover this is definitely…
