Initial Reaction After 2 years of waiting, The Queen by finally hit shelves. Let me be one of the first to tell you…it is FANTASTIC!!!! Seriously y’all it was perfect. After the cliffhanger in The Dark King, I was worried. I was worried for the characters, the series, and I was preparing myself for no happily ever after. I’m so glad I was wrong 😀 The Queen picks up immediately where The Dark King left off. (Please note from here to the end of this review, there may be minor spoilers to previous books in the series. Read at your own risk.) Caroline is in the… Read more »

Review: Mosaic by Sarah Fine

Review: Mosaic by Sarah Fine

December 2, 2016 Reviews 1

I am so sad writing this review. is one of my favorite authors. I fell in love with her Guards of the Shadowland series and have been hooked on her writing ever since. But Mosaic was not at all what I was expecting. It didn’t really follow the first two books of the series. In fact, I loved Reliquary and Splinter so I was really excited for the series conclusion. However I was so disappointed upon reading that I really don’t even know how to begin this review. Mosaic picks up an undisclosed amount of time after the end of Splinter. It’s clear on reading that Mattie has been traveling the… Read more »
