The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

I know guys. It has taken a hell of a long time to actually be able to present a review for this book. But finally it is actually happening, after buying back in October last year.  When I first bought this book back in the October for a really good price, I didn't realise that the target market was for children. But obviously, looking back at it now, how could it have been any different? When in the motion of choosing this book at the time, I must be honest, the only thing back then that I cared about was the illustrative cover. Although, this taught me a well-deserved lesson; don't always judge a book by it's cover - cliché. Apart from the simplistic lexical choices that both of these authors have used, the story itself is very easy to understand. There was even some illustrations at every chapter, which if you read my type of books on a daily basis, it can, in some ways be quite refreshing. Not always having to rely on the smallest imagination that I probably do actual…

Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking

The sequel to Frostfire in the Kanin Chronicles trilogy... So it finally came out in May, after the very disappointing ending of the first book - Frostfire. But this time it came back with a slightly big bang. Not only do we get to the bottom of the mysterious disappearance of Queen Linnea. But also that there is something much more going on, which corruption fills the air with a metal taste. The plot itself is largely more focused compared to the latter first book, which really only took us in the direction in terms of background and context. There is a lot more heated passion between a few characters, as well as some expected deaths towards the end. Luckily with this trilogy, all of the three books take place of being published within 2015. Therefore, it is not a long wait until we all find out how Bryn would end up. Towards the end of the book, I must admit that I found it to become very addictive. As there was a lot of tension and action which took place. This is probably what I l…

The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

I know that this has been a review which has been a long time in the making. Especially when I received the books back in August last year. So I guess, that is quite a long time. But as some of you may already know, they all pack a punch as to how big they all are in pages! So, to put you all out of your misery, here is the long-awaited review for 'The Lost Symbol'. YAY!

The main plotline is based around the organisation called the Freemasons, which throughout the years have had quite a bit of controversy. Not because they may have done something immoral, but rather that no one really knows what they actually do - except for Freemasons of course. People say that they are a secret organisation. But, that is completely and utterly incorrect. They are simply an organisation with secrets. Otherwise if they are a secret organisation, why do people know that Freemasonry actually exists, rather than a conspiracy?

Anyway, onto the review I go!

The omniscient narrator had a monotone vo…
