The Philosopher Kings

There’s still more talk than action, but enough happens that the end result is a satisfying conclusion, with room for more if desired.


The Philosopher Kings

Where The Just City invited argument, dialogue, thought experiment, The Philosopher Kings sets out explanations, explorations, certainties and resolutions in ways that can't help but feel insufficient and unsatisfying.


Uprooted

Uprooted is truly an enchanted forest, whose beautiful, sylvan paths twist and turn in unknown directions, and I have no intention of providing any hints as to where those trails lead. This is one forest you will want to get lost in.


An Ember in the Ashes

Overall this was a debut story that I enjoyed for its fast-paced plot, and engaging characters. It didn’t quite re-invent the wheel but what the author does is present a story that has a fresh touch to it and is well written within its genre confines.


Uprooted

If you’re a reader who enjoys smart coming-of-age fantasy adventures, you’ll have a blast with Uprooted. But you may find that you harbor your own fantasy—that Novik had uprooted this story from its overflowing single volume and let it spread its wings.


Uprooted

Uprooted is not only a perfect book but also a perfect book for me. I have nothing whatsoever to criticize here. I wholeheartedly recommend it as one of the best books I read this year, lately, ever.


The Grace of Kings

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to more from Liu soon.

Bookreporter : Uprooted (May 30, 2015)

On the whole, I found this novel both captivating and intelligent.... Novik has created a wonderfully rich, complex world described in radiant language that reminds me of another piece of my youth: an embroidered peasant blouse, glowing with color and intricate stitches.


The Silver Witch

The Silver Witch is a perfectly acceptable novel for someone looking for a very light fantasy/romance novel.


Charm

If you're looking for something dark and thrilling to read, please read Sarah Pinborough's Charm, because it offers you style, originality and good prose in a beautiful package.


Uprooted

Moving, heart-breaking, and thoroughly satisfying, Uprooted is the fantasy novel I feel I've been waiting a lifetime for. Clear your schedule before picking it up, because you won't want to put it down.


The Silver Witch

Overall though I did like this book and felt that it was ‘good’, it didn’t blow my mind but it was good and I would continue reading more books by her.


Day Shift

I liked this book better than the first because we got right into the mystery but I am hoping that in future books, Harris adds more of a romance angle for readers looking for that sort of thing.


The Gospel of Loki

Harris manages to sweep centuries of Norse lore into a condensed novel that reads both like a compendium of myths and a piece of contemporary fiction.


The Gospel of Loki

If not exactly fresh, certainly a rich, in-depth addition to the modern mythic canon.


The Gospel of Loki

The Gospel of Loki is great for anyone looking for a playful new take on classic mythology or just plain in the mood for a fun read.


An Ember in the Ashes

There’s a duality at work in “An Ember in the Ashes”: The novel thrusts its readers into a world marred by violence and oppression, yet does so with simple prose that can offer moments of loveliness in its clarity.


Day Shift

The only thing I regret about this book is learning it’s the second book in a trilogy. I could spend years with the people in Midnight.


Pirate's Alley

This book needs a stronger narrative drive to keep readers engaged. Still, the world and characters are appealing, and fans of the series will find enough of its charms here to keep them reading.


Rememberers
Kirkus Reviews : Rememberers (April 22, 2015)

A leisurely opening is mere preparation for the fierce struggle to follow—and it’s more than worth the wait.
