Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan’s most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin’s Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas – together in one edition for the first time – Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn’s orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out

Review
Since there were 5 novellas encased in this book, I’ll be reviewing them separately.

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord
This first novella introduces us to Arrobynn, Celaena, Sam and several other characters. We then watch as Celaena and Sam work to free the slave ships. I wasn’t all that enamored with this one. It was cool what she and Sam did, but, I don’t know, I was kinda hoping for more.

The Assassin and the Healer
I loved this one. I loved seeing a different side to Celaena. Yrene was my favorite secondary character and I loved watching her transform from a weak, quiet girl to a tougher, bolder girl. All with Celaena’s help. It showed me that Celaena was able to be multifaceted.  I loved seeing that she had a heart.

The Assassin and the Desert
In this book, we meet Ansel, another secondary character who I loved. I actually loved seeing Celaena want a friendship with another girl. The ending was utterly crazy, and twisty turn-y. I didn’t even expect it. I guess that’s the mark of really awesome twists. I think I liked this novella the best, although I really enjoyed all of them.

The Assassin and the Underworld
Holy hell, this one made me angry. I wanted nothing more than to kick Arobynn’s teeth in. At the very beginning of these novellas, I thought he was a good person. I didn’t realize how much of an asshole he was until this novella. By the time this novella was over, I was utterly livid with him. I did love watching Celaena slowly fall for Sam. They were adorable together and I loved them.

The Assassin’s Empire
This novella destroyed my feels. Oh my god, I suspected what would happen, but I was so hoping I was wrong. I hated reading about what was happening. I hated it for Celaena. She went from being a girl of strength, both mental and physical, to a girl who was only a shell of herself. What a character arc!

The writing was beautiful. I don’t even know how Sarah J. Maas does it. She manages to weave together a gorgeous story with beautiful writing. I will be giving this book 4 stars. If you haven’t read the series yet, I’d recommend you read The Assassin’s Blade first.

Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) by Sarah J. Maas

Book Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Publish Date: May 5th, 2015
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children’s
Genre: YA Fantasy
Series: Book One in A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy
Book Link: Goodreads
Synopsis from Goodreads:
A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Timesbestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

Disclaimer: I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Review:
I don’t think I’ve ever read a book about faeries, or if I have, it was forgettable. This book is definitely not forgettable. This book has Tamlin & Lucien, both of whom will make you melt into a damn puddle. They are hot, sexy, swoony fae men, who ooze hotness at every page turn. They both are distrustful of Feyre at first, but slowly, she begins to win them over.

Both Lucien and Tamlin have their own sad stories, stories we learn about as the book unfolds. They each have their own reasons for feeling, thinking and acting the way they do. My heart will always belong to Lucien due to some of the things we learn about him. Plus I’ve always had a thing for guys with red hair.

The romance between Tamlin and Feyre was so incredibly hot. I mean I don’t think any book has ever caused me to blush this hard. Maas knows how to write steamy, sexy things so, so well. I am forever grateful that I did not read this book in public. Don’t read this book in public guys. Unless you are one of the few who don’t mind when people see you blush. Because you will blush during certain sexy points in this book.

But it will be well worth it.

The lengths Feyre goes in order to prove her love for Tamlin are inspiring. I did a lot of thinking about this and the things she’s asked to do in the name of love, I don’t think I’ve loved anyone to the extent that I’d be willing to take part in terrifying things. Reading this book, and watching Tamlin & Feyre’s love story develop, made me realize that I would never have done what she did for my ex fiance. 

That right there was a startling revelation.

The world building was amazing, and it really made me feel like I was right there, in the action with Tamlin, Lucien, Feyre and the others. It was my first Maas book, but it definitely will not be my last. It was sexy, fast paced and exciting. Fantasy books are quickly becoming my second favorite genre and right now, as I type this, A Court of Thorns and Roses is my favorite Fantasy book of 2015. I cannot wait for everyone to read this awesome book. 5 stars to this fantastic book full of romance, intrigue and beautiful words.

Review: The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen #1) by Jodi Meadows

Book Title: The Orphan Queen
Author: Jodi Meadows
Published Date: March 10th, 2015
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Genre: YA Fantasy
Series: Book One in The Orphan Queen duology
Book Link: Goodreads
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Wilhelmina has a hundred identities.

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others

Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.

Disclaimer: I borrowed this book from a fellow blogger.

Review:
My number one goal this year is to read more YA Fantasy novels. I’ve read a few already this year, and was excited to read this one as well. This was to be my first Jodi Meadows book, and I fell in love with the cover, long before I cracked open the book. I was nervous because so many people loved it. I really didn’t want to be the black sheep.

It started off on the slow side, and I was nervous once again. I was so afraid that it wouldn’t pick up. I knew I had to allow for the story to be set up before I totally ruled against this book. Normally, I’m not patient, but for this book, I was curious enough to keep reading despite the slow pace in the beginning.

I liked Wil immediately. She was a total badass and I loved seeing that. I loved seeing her commitment to her people, I was quite jealous of her fighting talents. It would be totally awesome to have that kind of talent.

I never trusted Melanie. She always seemed to be hiding something, and she didn’t seem all that loyal to Wil, which pissed me off. Weren’t they supposed to be best friends? I constantly questioned her actions, especially towards the end of the book. To me, it was clear where her loyalty lay and that drove me insane. I was irrationally furious with Melanie by the time the book finished.

Oh Black Knife. SWOON! I seem to have a thing for the “darker” characters in fantasy novels. It’s definitely strange, but Black Knife was mysterious, sexy and captivating. He was actually quite a surprise as I didn’t expect to fall for him quite as hard as I actually did. Well played Jodi, well played. I cannot wait to see more of him in the next book.

The world building just got better and better as the book went on. In fantasy novels, the world building can make or break a book, and in this case, it definitely positively enhanced the book. I kept wanting to know more and more about this world that Wil, Melanie, Black Knife and the others were in, and that right there, is awesome.

There’s a freaking cliffhanger that will probably kill you like it almost killed me.

I’m so glad I got to read this book. It was so good, and I’m thrilled that I pre-ordered it last month. So I’ll have a shiny finished copy on my shelves this week. I am giving it 4.5 stars. I wish I could give it the full five stars, but the slow start moved it down a half star. Aside from the slow start, I’m telling you all to go read it ASAP.

Review: Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch

Book Title: Snow Like Ashes
Author: Sara Raasch
Published Date: October 14th, 2014
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Genre: YA Fantasy
Series: Book 1 in Snow Like Ashes trilogy
Book Link: Goodreads
Synopsis from Goodreads:
A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

Review:

“Even the strongest blizzard starts with a single snowflake.”

Oh my goodness, why didn’t I read this book sooner? I really should have read it months ago, but I wasn’t really feeling the Fantasy genre, so I was holding off until I was ready for it. I really wanted to love this book because the cover is gorgeous, and I wanted the insides to match the gorgeousness of the outside.

I was not disappointed. At. All.

Meira was a total bad ass and I loved her as a character. She was well rounded and so awesome. I loved her relationships with Sir and Mather especially. They were both protective of her, possibly too protective. They refused to allow her to fight in battle, or to do anything physical like that. Meira and Mather have an undeniable connection from the beginning and for the first 125 pages, I adored Mather, and I wanted Mather for my own.

Until we met Prince Theron. Sa-woon!

He was hot, and quickly turned into my favorite guy in the entire story. There was much more to him and why Meira was meeting him, than initially met the eye. Meira seemed to warm to him pretty quickly, which surprised me big time. I didn’t expect the connection to be what it was, so I was pleasantly surprised when truths were revealed. 

“We have all the time you desire, Meira. I will not rush you.”

Holy hell, he’s totally swoony and I love that about him. He’s more than just a prince. He’s got a good heart, and he’s essentially trapped in Cordell, forced to do what his father, King Noam, demands.

“Don’t you want more than this?”
“Every day of my life.”

It was sad because Theron wanted so much more than to be king. He wanted to explore his artsy side. His artistic abilities included poetry and painting, but as future king, he was unable to explore that side of him.

On the other side of the triangle, we had Mather, who was also struggling with everything. He was in love with Meira, but according to Sir, Winter had to come first. Before his own happiness, even. That was rough on both Meira and Mather. They were attracted to each other, but nothing could happen between them.

King Noam was a complex character and I was never sure what he wanted or who, if anyone, he was loyal to. Watching him was fascinating because I never knew what to expect.

The world was described so vividly that I could see it as I read it. That excites me. Being able to visualize what I’m reading about makes a book even better in my eyes. I was worried that this world wouldn’t be described well, but I am so glad I didn’t need to worry. It was beautifully & clearly described.

Oh, and I want a chakram

There are so many other things I want to talk about, but I cannot mention it. It’s too spoilery and I don’t want to ruin it for others. Yes, you definitely need to read this glorious fantasy novel. I loved it, and will happily give it 5 stars.

Review: The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) by Marie Lu

Book Title: The Young Elites
Author: Marie Lu
Published Date: October 7th, 2014
Publisher: Putnam Books For Young Readers
Genre: YA Fantasy
Series: Book 1 in The Young Elites series
Book Link: Goodreads
Synopsis from Goodreads:
I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Review:
It was no secret that this book was one of my most anticipated reads of 2014. I hadn’t read Lu’s previous work, but this one sounded so good and I was so excited for it. It was described to me as a dark fantasy and that it would cause me pain, but that I would enjoy it.

My blogging friends were right on the money. I loved this book, and especially Adelina. The role of “evil” character is usually reserved for the man in the story, so I loved that in this story Adelina was the one who was “evil” and instead of being sweet and demure, she was passion and anger filled. Awesome-sauce.

It took me a long time to warm up to Violetta, I was actually angry with her for not defending her sister against their abusive father. We later found out more about her which definitely changed my opinion of her. I still don’t love her, but I’m warming up to her definitely.

For a little while there I was convinced that this story was going to include a love triangle between Enzo and Raffaele and Adelina, thankfully I turned out to be wrong. I adored Raffaele though and he did remind me a lot of Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games trilogy. Finnick was another character I adored. The light romance was beautiful, and I was glad that not much emphasis was put on the romance. I think any more romance would have made me not love the book.

The world building was utterly glorious, it was so vivid an I could totally picture it in my mind’s eye. It was beautifully described and it made me want to jump into the book and live in it. It’s been a long time since a Fantasy book has made me feel like this. Good world building always makes me happy and this world building was beautiful so kudos to Lu for creating this world.

5 stars to this fantasy novel that has the power to turn into an epic series and I think it will do just that. I now need to go pick up Lu’s previous trilogy from the library because her writing is so fabulous.

Review: Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die #1) by Danielle Paige

Book Title: Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die #1)
Author: Danielle Paige
Published Date: April 1st, 2014
Publisher: Harper Teen
Genre: YA Fantasty
Series: Book One in Dorothy Must Die trilogy
Book Link: Goodreads
Synopsis from Goodreads:
I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero.

But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still the yellow brick road, though—but even that’s crumbling.

What happened? Dorothy.

They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas.

I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.

I’ve been trained to fight.

And I have a mission.

Disclaimer: Library book.

Review:
I’m gonna let you all in on a little secret. I don’t actually like The Wizard of Oz. I didn’t like the books or the movie or anything that had to do with it. I’m like the only person I know who doesn’t like the movie. Yes, I know it’s considered a classic, but I never understood all the hype behind it. I’m sure you are now wondering why on EARTH would I want to read a retelling of a classic that I never liked.

Here’s another secret, I like creepy things. I like tales that are much darker. So when I read the synopsis for this book, I got excited. Like really, embarrassingly excited. When my copy arrived at the library, I couldn’t wait to tear into it.

Holy crap, if the original had been like this, I would have LOVED it. Because Dorothy Must Die was awesome, full of mystery and magic. It exceeded my expectations big time which thrills me because honestly I was a little worried that I wouldn’t enjoy this one, but I knew very early on that, that wasn’t going to be an issue.

From early on we’re swept into a world that is familiar, but also unfamiliar at the same time. The Wicked are good and the Good are bad. Everything is sort of topsy-turvy in this world. The once bright and colorful world is now dark and gloomy. The world building throughout this book was top notch. At one point, I said that it was very Tim Burton-esque and I felt that way all throughout the book.

Dorothy is no longer the sweet girl that the story left off at. She’s allowed herself to get wrapped up in power. She is now power hungry. Oz is no longer the happy place that it once was. Monkeys can get killed for treason. The Scarecrow is now a terrifying scientist who turns people into half human half metal. The Lion is terrifying in size and his thing is to drain the fear from his victims and the Tin Man who is just terrifying in his own right.

We also have Nox,who no one knows much about and we can’t figure out whose side he’s on. There’s Gert, who I absolutely loved and wanted to hug her so many times. Melindra & Annabel who play small but important roles in the book. There’s also Glamora and my personal favorite, Mombi. They’re Good…or are they?

Amy! I actually really loved her as a character. I know some people didn’t connect with her, but I did. She was everything that young Dorothy had been except for one small thing. She had edge. She wasn’t the “good girl” that Dorothy was when she came to Oz. 

Amy had her own demons. Her mom was a mess, her dad was living far away with his pregnant girlfriend and she was bullied constantly at school by a girl named Madison Pendleton.She didn’t believe everything right away which I thought was very believable., but she also didn’t take long to embrace what she needed to do.

I actually really loved the ending. I thought it was a great cliffhanger and given the characters that were involved, it definitely set the stage for an exciting, thrilling second book. I am totally giving this book 5 stars. It was perfect. It was awesome and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for all the characters next.
