Invictus || Time Traveling Teenage Thieves

Far is the son of a gladiator and a professional time traveler. The first baby born outside of time. Top of his class. At least Far was, before his failed final exam shatters Far’s dreams of following in his time traveling mother’s footsteps faster than his cousin’s gelato can melt.

Far’s only hope is a handwritten note from an unknown sender promising him a second chance. Far’s present is not a time of second chances. The sender could be anyone, yet Far knows this is the sole remaining possibility allowing him to fulfill his time traveling dream. Continue reading

August, September, and October Wrap-up

These past few months were eventful to say the least. So eventful that I am wrapping-up my reading experience for three months in one post. Seriously though, there is a lot to cover.

I read some books that disappointed, others I loved, went to two author events, and finished the first draft of a novel. Continue reading

4TheWords Review

4thewords is a site that aims to make writing into a video game. It accomplishes this through users battling monsters and completing quests through writing words.

Monsters of Verity Duology Review

In Verity, people’s crimes manifest as monsters. 

August is one of these monsters. He doesn’t want to be but didn’t have a choice in the matter. Besides, Verity doesn’t need another human. It needs a monster. It needs him. 

Kate is the daughter of the man who controls these monsters. All she wants is his approval, but approval is hard to get from a man who deals with monsters. 

Together, they make up two halves of a divided city. A city where both halves hang on the edge between order and chaos.  Continue reading

Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray, 4 Stars

This is the sort of science fiction novel I love. For whatever reason, I can’t get enough of plot lines where a non-human protagonist has to blend into human society, and along the way learn they have much more in common with humans than they thought. 

I adore Abel for this reason, and his personality in general. I love it when authors manage to make readers sympathize with characters that might otherwise come across as things rather than people. Continue reading
