Book Review: Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2)Goodreads Synopsis

Would you trade your soul mate for your soul?

A Shadowhunter’s life is bound by duty. Constrained by honor. The word of a Shadowhunter is a solemn pledge, and no vow is more sacred than the vow that binds parabatai, warrior partners—sworn to fight together, die together, but never to fall in love.

Emma Carstairs has learned that the love she shares with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, isn’t just forbidden—it could destroy them both. She knows she should run from Julian. But how can she when the Blackthorns are threatened by enemies on all sides?

Their only hope is the Black Volume of the Dead, a spell book of terrible power. Everyone wants it. Only the Blackthorns can find it. Spurred on by a dark bargain with the Seelie Queen, Emma; her best friend, Cristina; and Mark and Julian Blackthorn journey into the Courts of Faerie, where glittering revels hide bloody danger and no promise can be trusted. Meanwhile, rising tension between Shadowhunters and Downworlders has produced the Cohort, an extremist group of Shadowhunters dedicated to registering Downworlders and “unsuitable” Nephilim. They’ll do anything in their power to expose Julian’s secrets and take the Los Angeles Institute for their own.

When Downworlders turn against the Clave, a new threat rises in the form of the Lord of Shadows—the Unseelie King, who sends his greatest warriors to slaughter those with Blackthorn blood and seize the Black Volume. As dangers close in, Julian devises a risky scheme that depends on the cooperation of an unpredictable enemy. But success may come with a price he and Emma cannot even imagine, one that will bring with it a reckoning of blood that could have repercussions for everyone and everything they hold dear.


There might be spoilers for Lady Midnight for those who haven’t read it yet. You’ve been warned.

I got this book the day it came out and I started it not too long after and it took me quite a while to finish it. I wasn’t worried because while I find Cassandra Clare’s work addictive, I always seem to take years to finish one book. I also had to put the book aside for a while because of studies but once I picked it up again, I couldn’t put it down again nor did I want to.

Lord of Shadows picks off roughly where Lady Midnight ended so we don’t miss anything. Major things happened in the first book and we were sent in blind, not knowing what awaited us around the corner. It’s like a jar tipped over and all its contents fell out and it made a mess of everything. That was Lady Midnight. Lord of Shadows focuses on putting everything back in but taking stock of each item as it’s returned. That doesn’t mean that it’s over though. It seems that we’ve barely scratched the surface and by the end of this book I was searching to see when The Queen of Air and Darkness is coming out. Thank goodness it’s been moved forward to 2018, so no more two year wait.

Once again I’m glad that Cassandra Clare doesn’t focus on the love aspect of the series too much because that does become distracting at times. Of course this all revolves around Emma and Julian’s feelings for each other since their love is forbidden and I am curious about why that’s the case. But, even though that is what the motivation is for some of these situations, there’s a bigger picture here that’s being painted and I’m eager to see what exactly that is.

“I want you to know what it’s like. To be tortured all the time, night and day, desperately wanting what you know you should never want, what doesn’t even want you back.”

Christopher ‘Kit’ Herondale has been added to the mix and we’re seeing the Blackthorn family from an ‘outsider’s’ POV. All this we’ve seen them through Julian and Emma’s view and there are so much that can be learnt. Kit blended in so easily with the crew, it’s as if he’s always been there. His constant battle of whether he wants to be a shadowhunter or not was…refreshing. With the characters in The Shadowhunter Chronicles, you either are or you aren’t. He could choose if this was the life he wanted and I think that’s a big deal because not everyone loves what they’re born into. *Note: we’re not looking at Simon here. He’s a special case.

There was so much action that went on in this book. I don’t remember where we had a moment of peace to just regroup before the next hunt was underway. I loved it though. As I mentioned before, I couldn’t put this book down. I was constantly at the edge of my seat anxious about what was about to happen next. From book one, there has definitely been some major character development and that’s always a good thing.

New enemies have been made and maybe they’ve been waiting in the shadows for a long time. Old enemies have come to the light and in short…a war is coming. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows were buildups to the climax that hasn’t happened yet. More is coming but my heart’s already been ripped out, sides have been chosen, I’ve cried and ached with these characters. I do know that even though I’m impatiently waiting for the next book, I am not ready.

“Break my heart. Break it in pieces. I give you permission.”

This quote can’t be more true. Cassandra Clare, there you have it. Do with my heart what you will because I’m here for all of this.

All the characters in this book are a team whether they’re aware of that fact or not. The good guys are at least. Bad guys are just the enemy. Cassie Clare has once again joined them and we know that it starts with a small few. I have to admit that each series within the Shadowhunter Chronicles have become a bit repetitive but they have their differences even if history does seem to be repeating itself over and over again.

I’ll be honest, I cried while reading this book. Of course it’s no secret that there are themes, some major, of LGBTQ in the Shadowhunter Chronicles and I’m all about any kind of positive representation. I felt so happy that the community is a part of this and I had to take a moment to compose myself.

Let’s talk about that ending though. Like, how dare you Cassandra Clare rip my heart out like that? It’s already been broken and stomped on. I did not need that extra punch to the gut. I want to know what that was all supposed to achieve. Oh well, I guess we’ll find out in the next book.

I did rate this book 5 stars yes, but I won’t gloss over the fact that there were a few things I disliked in and about the book. The constant POV changes…it made the book read like a movie and it got confusing at times. Just as the scene got really interesting, we’d jump over to someone else. So many POV’s. I understand that Clare wanted us to be in the loop about what was going on everywhere but at times it seemed like a bit too much.

I don’t want to end off this review on a bad note though. I definitely enjoyed LoS a lot more than I did Lady Midnight. I felt that there was a lot more action and plot to this book and I loved the constant need to know more. My curiosity was piqued and sated. Once again, Clare wrote an amazing book and I was hooked from page 1. I’ll go find a corner to sit in till the release day of The Queen of Air and Darkness.

eARC Book Review: Teeth: The First Bite by Chele Cooke

Teeth: The First Bite (Teeth, #1)

Goodreads Synopsis

“We cannot be merely carnivores. We must be cannibals.”

Medical student Thomas wakes up in a blood-drenched basement room, with no memory of how or why he got there.

Spencer has the answers, and now he must train Thomas to follow the rules of being a vampire – under the watchful gaze of his own mentor.

But how will Thomas practice medicine when the smell of blood turns him into a vicious killer?

Can Spencer teach Thomas to master his new powers, before he’s turned from predator into prey?

Teeth: The First Bite is the first book in the Teeth series


I received this book from the author on Instafreebie in exchange for an honest review.

Teeth: The First Bite is about newly turned vampire Thomas who is a medical intern and his struggle with continuing his job when there’s the possibility of the patient becoming his next meal. Sounds intriguing? Yea, I thought the same thing but what we’re promised in the synopsis is not what we’re given in the book. I will go through both the negative and positive aspects (in my opinion) of this book as is the norm. I’ll start with the negative so that we can end on a good note. Trust me though, there’s nothing that’s actually ‘bad’ about this book.

It’s common knowledge that I allow myself to forget the synopsis of a book so that I can have that element of surprise with a dash of unpredictability. I was at chapter six and I still didn’t know what on earth this book was apart from the obvious- vampires. I decided to go back to the Goodreads synopsis to see what I had gotten myself in. I don’t mind the beating around the bush in novels because sometimes the scene needs to be set but this is a novella and I was worried that if we were taking so long to get to the point, would it all be rushed once we got to the ending?

I was at chapter ten and we still hadn’t gone to med school with Thomas. At this point I was starting to worry because I also realised that the book was in fact not about him. I do think that the synopsis was a bit misleading because Thomas was a small feature compared to what the rest of the book held. He was that person that led us to the others but wasn’t the main event. What this book was actually about? Being a vampire and the laws that come with it. I feel that that should have been made clearer because it was as if I was reading a different book than the one I signed up for. Last point: the pace of the plot. It dragged so much and obviously since this is a novella there wasn’t much time and maybe this would’ve been better as a full length novel instead because there was so much that had to be said.

Now for the positive. I loved the writing. It was superb and addicting. I took days to finish this book only because I had other responsibilities but I kept finding myself drawn back to it. The actual pace of the book was quite fast and it was easy to speed through it while understanding what was going on at the same time.

I do wish that we got more of a background about these laws though. At times it felt as if there was a running joke that only the writer and characters understood but there were no hints to help clue us in. The random characters thrown in made me feel like I missed something. Again, this would’ve been better as a full length novel.

Saying that, I did enjoy this book and I am curious about other writings Cooke might have.

Book Review: City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3)Goodreads Synopsis

To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters – never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City – whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.


I’ve noted in my other reviews that I with this reread of the series, I’d be reviewing the books as I go along.

This was only the second time that I read City of Glass and I can say right off the bat that I enjoyed it immensely, maybe even more than when I read it for the first time. So many things happened in this book and I can’t believe how much I had forgotten.

We start off almost right where City of Ashes left off and I like that the books aren’t paced too far apart because that gives us the sense of not having missed out on anything. I feel that this book tipped the scales for the series because it was an end but also the beginning of so much more. Because of all the events that happens, we’re basically looking at a climax but not the climax that means the end is night. I know that hardly makes sense but bare with me for a moment here.

Clary, whom we know is the main character (kind of) is not as annoying as she used to be. She is maturing but not as fast as I’d like. I don’t notice much of her annoying ways anymore mainly because there are so many other things going on that I only pay attention to her when it’s her POV.

I still think that Jace needs a hug to be honest. The thing about Jace in this book is that he’s reached his  boiling point. All this time he’s been confused on which pathway to go down and now one has been highlighted for him, and all he has to do is decide whether to follow it or not.

It’s in this book where we’re given the opportunity to see exactly what these ‘children’ are capable of. No one listens to them because what do they know? But it’s for that reason that they’re able to accomplish so much, because they have so much more that they need to prove.

This book is where we’re met with an enemy worse than Valentine and it breaks my heart to know that there’s no redemption for that part of this person and the worst thing is…it isn’t his fault. He didn’t ask for it but the rest of the world has to suffer the consequences.

There is so much character development that takes place! Malec for starters because that’s a big deal. Izzy is starting to act like the Isabelle Lightwood I know her to be and Simon isn’t acting butt hurt over not getting the supposed love of his life. Even Maryse Lightwood as removed the stick from her rear.

City of Glass has so far been the most emotional book in the series for me because as I said, so many things happen that it’s hard to grasp it all. I felt anger, betrayal, heartbreak but it’s the undivided strength and power of family that makes me feel so incredibly happy. They may not all be of the same blood biologically but they all share the same ideas and stand together. Here we see people agreeing to stand together against a common enemy and there’s something so satisfying about that.

We know this isn’t the end, far from it actually, but the gears are turning. This was only the tip of the iceberg and an avalanche is coming.

This read has only made me even more excited to continue the series and I anxiously look forward to that day.

eARC Book Review: A Bit(e) of Discretion, Please by T.A. Miles

A Bit(e) of Discretion, Please (Dreamer #1)

Goodreads Synopsis

Caught in the act of being a supernatural creature, Stuart, a former Prince of the Dreaming has been brought into mortal custody. As part of his sentence, he’s required to perform public service duties, assisting other supernaturals and gifted mortals in solving cases of an other worldly nature. Armed with only a fraction of his faerie glamour, and an intense passion for tea, Stuart partners with a young spiritualist to resolve a case of missing souls.

A lighthearted and humorous approach to the varying fantastic and supernatural realms and beings as they intersect with a not so defenseless or unsuspecting mortal world. This is the first in a series of short stories/novellas.


I received this book from the author on Instafreebie in exchange for an honest review.

A Bit(e) of Discretion, Please tells the story of Stuart who was revoked of his fairyism and sentenced to help other supernatural creatures. As the story progressed it felt like Stuart’s punishment was basically making him a cop…or a criminal informant.

I don’t always reread the synopsis of a book just before I start it because I like the element of surprise but with this book I had to go back and read it since I was quite confused. I’m not entirely sure if that was because I forgot what the book was about or because of how the book started. The synopsis gives you the introduction, and it’s not repeated again in the book. And that’s where I got lost.

As I continued reading, my interests were piqued enough for me to want to continue this story. As it was only about 30 pages, I was wondering how much the author would reveal. Would it read like a full novel and would I get a good feel of the author’s writing style? All my questions seems to have been answered. This did not read like a full-length novel but enough information was given that it filled in some holes.

I wondered about Stuart’s name. I’m used to fantasy characters having these weird and sometimes complicated names and here we get Stuart. I thought that maybe he was unlucky in that regard but it turns out that it was part of his cover, among other things to help hide that he was a Dreamer/Fairy-this wasn’t fully explained. I was a few pages in and I still didn’t know much about Stuart. All I knew was that he loved tea and didn’t like this punishment.

I found the concept of an empty town that wasn’t empty extremely fascinating. It was described as being hollow but it was obvious that there were dark forces in the area. I was confused by what a night angel was. I’m still confused. Is it an angel? A vampire? They mentioned the fallen, actual angels and some vampires made an appearance. I would’ve appreciated a more detailed explanation though.

I rather liked Daniel. I found him to be quite cunning and devious and while I know now what his story was, him jumping like some macho man brandishing that gun was grounds for heart eyes. Mei Lin was awesome and I easily forgot that she was a child.

The story showed a lot of potential and I liked what the author was trying to say. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style and found it to be easy to read.

I’ll admit that were some confusing bits but they didn’t take away from the enjoyment. I do wish the book was slightly longer though. I’m very interested in seeing what happens next.

eARC Book Review: The Beast That Never Was by Caren J. Werlinger

The Beast That Never WasWhat if Beauty was the Beast?

Lise’s father is dead, and the life of plenty and freedom that she has known as the daughter of the King’s Huntsman is gone. She must now live a life of duty to her mother and sisters, helping them to cope in their altered circumstances. But where her mother would have her wed a childhood friend to secure their future, Lise knows that is not what she longs for.

When she meets a mysterious woman in the forest, Lise feels the stirrings of emotions she cannot give voice to, but with this woman, she doesn’t have to say anything—Senna knows.

Cursed, hunted, and feared, Senna has been forced to wander from place to place for more years than she cares to remember. She gave up hope long ago that there could ever be an end to her isolation.

Odd sightings in the forest—monsters of legend come to life, old enemies back from the past, fearsome beasts on the prowl—begin to frighten the people of Lise’s village. Somehow, all of these things are connected to Senna. As the villagers’ fear grows, so does their hatred.

Senna prepares to flee, accepting what has become her fate, but Lise isn’t ready to give up her one chance for happiness. Soon, only Lise stands between the villagers and the woman she has grown to love.


I received this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a version of Beauty and the Beast that is even more twisted than the retellings usually are. If it weren’t for the Beauty/Beast aspect of the book, one would think it was its own story, which in a way, it was.

What was different about this retelling apart from the girlxgirl part- which is the first I’ve seen of this particular tale- is the fact that the Beauty was the Beast. That alone is what made me want to read the book. I wanted to see how exactly the author went through with that idea.

Characters: Lise is such a relatable character even in this fantasy novel because she goes through what so many people in real life do. She’s the responsible one, so everyone expects her to do things even when they’re clearly capable of doing it themselves. There’s this huge stigma surrounding the town and the people therein that makes Lise unable to be who she really is, love who she wants to.

I liked Senna the second she was introduced. She had this air of mystery and I, much like Lise, wanted to know who this beautiful woman in the forest was. Where she came from and what her story was. She was so isolated but not so much that she didn’t draw people to her. The fact that she had her own POV really helped with understanding her and her curse better.

Likes: The characterisation in this book was amazing. From their introductions to the way their developments were shown. Some of the characters started out at such a low point and rose above everyone else’s opinion while some that refused to get down from their high horses were knocked down.

I loved the plot line, truly. The way the author turned an idea that could’ve remained just that, into something so worth reading.

The pacing in this book was excellent as well. Nothing was rushed and everything fell into place like a perfect puzzle. Things happened so seamlessly that even if there was a flaw, it wasn’t noticeable.

Dislikes: There wasn’t really anything I disliked about this book. A character here and there I could’ve done without but I guess they helped with the story.

Overall Thoughts: I’ve read a book by Caren J. Werlinger before and I fell in love with her writing style and the way she manages to suck you into the story. I jumped at the opportunity to read the story and this has only solidified my love for her writing even more. I look forward to reading a lot more.

eARC Book Review: In the Hope of Memories by Olivia Rivers

In the Hope of Memories

Goodreads Synopsis

Hope is dying.

Hope Jackson has lived her short life to the fullest, but her four closest friends are dangling on the brink of disaster. Right before dying of a rare heart condition, Hope sets up a scavenger hunt across New York City using her graffiti art. The directions she leaves her friends are simple: Solve the clues hidden in her art, and they’ll solve the problems haunting their lives.

Hope is dead.

Two days after her heart fails, Hope’s friends are thrown together:

Aiden, her best friend, whose plans to attend college have been scattered by his OCD.
Kali, her foster sister, whose last ties to sanity are as razor-thin as her anorexic waistline.
Erik, her high school crush, whose success as an athlete is based on a lie with no end in sight.
And Sam, her online pen-pal, whose perfect life exploded into chaos in the aftermath of a school bombing.

Together, the four teens take to the streets of New York to complete Hope’s scavenger hunt and fulfill her dying wishes. But in order to unravel the clues hidden in Hope’s graffiti, her friends will need to confront their personal demons head on.

Hope is within reach.


I received this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

There are five people in this book who the story is focused on. Even if one of them is dead.

Erik sees an invitation outside his house to Hope’s birthday party with an address on it but he ends up at Aiden’s -Hope’s OCD friend- house instead. Aiden tells Erick that Hope died two days ago. After words -not many of them nice- are exchange, Aiden convinces Erik that Hope left them clues to complete a scavenger hunt and so the main event of the story starts.

When I found out about Hope leaving behind clues and Erik, Aiden, Kali and Sam had to figure out what they were and in turn this would help them in their life, I scoffed. I thought this was mean of Hope to do because I felt that these people needed time to grieve, to get over the loss of their friend but I soon got with the program. Hope wasn’t forcing them to ‘remember’ her, she didn’t need to. All she wanted to do was take care of them and make sure they knew that life would go on. It wasn’t the end.

Characters: As I said, I thought Hope was a bit mean for expecting her friends to ‘keep her alive’ so to speak. I ended up finding her quite endearing as the book wore on. Her main concern was that now that she was dead, her friends would go on living. She really seemed to be a rock to all of them and I think that was clearer after she wasn’t there anymore.

Erik could be a bit of a jerk but I thought that was both a coping and a defence mechanism. He was losing what seemed to be the most important thing to him so it was understandable that he’d lash out.

Is it mean that I was sometimes annoyed by Aiden? Not because of his OCD, or his knowledge. I actually admired his smartness. He annoyed be at times because the others would be looking off in the distance and randomly he’d be like: ‘Hope is dead.’ I get that he was grieving, and yes, maybe it does make me mean to expect him not to point it out every five minutes.

I loved Sam so much. They were awesome and excuse me? Major geek alert. All those Supernatural and Sherlock and Doctor Who references gave me life. I loved when Erik was asking about something burning to the ground and Sam replied: ‘I’m sure the Supernatural fandom will get to it sometime.’

I thought Kali was…full of herself. She was easily offended and always thought she was the target. I think she needed the most help and this was picked up on in the book, which I’m glad about.

Likes: I like that this book involved a bit of everything. There were mental illnesses, trauma, sexual identity, loss of something important. This book was about helping people carry on and I think it was the perfect way to show people that life does in fact go on. When people say ‘it’s not the end of the world’ they mean it.

Overall Thoughts: I loved the writing style and I thought that this was amazing and fast paced. The synopsis was very clever. Letting us know what’s inside but not telling us what it was exactly. Just like a synopsis is supposed to be. Once I actually got into this book, I finished it pretty quick. I can’t wait to read more by this author. I think this is one of those books that stays with you and I loved every moment.

eARC Book Review: What Remains by Garrett Leigh

What RemainsGoodreads Synopsis

Web designer Jodi Peters is a solitary creature. Lunch twice a week with his ex-girlfriend-turned-BFF and the occasional messy venture to a dodgy gay bar is all the company he needs, right?

Then one night he stumbles across newly divorced firefighter Rupert O’Neil. Rupert is lost and lonely, but just about the sweetest bloke Jodi has ever known. Add in the heady current between them, and Jodi can’t help falling hard in love. He offers Rupert a home within the walls of his cosy Tottenham flat—a sanctuary to nurture their own brand of family—and for four blissful years, life is never sweeter.

Until a cruel twist of fate snatches it all away. A moment of distraction leaves Jodi fighting for a life he can’t remember and shatters Rupert’s heart. Jodi doesn’t know him—or want to. With little left of the man he adores, Rupert must cling to what remains of his shaky faith and pray that Jodi can learn to love him again.


I received this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

What Remains is about Rupert O’Neil and Jodi Peters and how love conquers all. Sounds cheesy, I know but this is honestly a beautiful story and I was hoping and praying for a happy ending because these characters deserved it.

The book starts with time jumps from the present back to when Jodi and Rupert first met and then it all molds into one and the story continues on.

After being hit by a stolen car and basically catapulted into the air, Jodi ends up in a coma for months and when he finally wakes up, he’s missing five years of his life. He has no idea who Rupert is and has a major sexual identity crisis.

Characters: Rupert was an adorable sweetheart. Also, are all firefighters automatically hot? I mean, he had the looks- Jodi described his skin as being beautiful- and he made Nutella on toast as a cheer up snack. He was an amazing dad, a great boyfriend…not such a good cook though. His constant vigilance gave me life.

Jodi was a bit of an a-hole but he was adorable. He could be mean but that made the moments when he tried to be nice even more obvious. I loved this pairing and everything they did made me smile. Seriously, two grown men shouldn’t be as cute as this. My heart almost leapt out of my chest.

Thank God for Sophie. If it weren’t for her, both Jodi and Rupert would’ve called it quits ages ago. She was the perfect addition to this book. She’s also not such a great cook but that’s okay.

Likes: EVERYTHING!

Dislikes: Not. A. Thing.

Overall Thoughts: I loved every moment of this book. Garrett Leigh gave me what I never thought I need in my life. I’m am definitely going to check out the rest of her work.

Read this people! This book is a treasure.
