First things first – I think that those who enjoyed Wicked Saints will enjoy Ruthless Gods.  There’s a lot of the same aesthetic and I personally thought the characters were constant.  Unfortunately, I’m coming at this from an angle where Wicked Saints was not quite as good as I wanted it to be, and Ruthless Gods did not improve the situation. There is still a little of the landscaping aesthetics I really liked […]

The Grace Year by Kim Liggett

The Grace Year by Kim Liggett

Posted September 4, 2019 in Reviews // 2 Comments

I have some mixed feelings about The Grace Year.  On one hand, this book is really conceptually interesting. It has some serious The Handmaid’s Tale vibes and it’s atmospherically very creative and interesting.  But The Grace Year tried to do a lot of things all at once and I think it over-reached itself. For starters, the pacing was really weird.  Sometimes, we were able to really absorb the situation and the world, and when the story slowed down, the bits and pieces were excellent.  But there were other places that the story seemed to fast-forward and it was easy to get lost.  I […]

Adrienne Young weaves beautiful worlds. Sky in the Deep came as a delightful surprise last year, and ever since, I’ve been looking forward to The Girl the Sea Gave Back.  The cover is exquisite and I was excited to delve back into this world.  There’s something mythical about the mixture for historical fiction and an edge of fantasy in this chilled, foggy landscape.  As with her debut, the world spills on to the page in stunning splashes of color and it’s very easy to be mesmerized. That said, I didn’t feel as though this book was as successful as her debut, and […]
