Arc Review: Fire Falling by Elise Kova & Giveaway!

I’m thrilled to be a part of the Fire Falling Release Tour today! I absolutely loved Air Awakens, so when it came to starting Fire Falling, I was a little hesitant. Its always a little intimidating, when you aren’t sure if you will like the next book in a series as much as you liked the first one. Of course, there is always  uncertainty, but it definitely feels heavier when you love the first book. I started Air Awakens right before I went to bed one night and I stayed up way too late reading it. When I picked up Fire Falling, I was worried I was making exactly the same mistake. It’s just as easy to read as Air Awakens and it has the same beautiful flow. However, I was a little disappointed in the first 50 pages. Vhalla is very upset after the events in the first book and is still reeling. 50 pages into Fire Falling, it had a much different and more serious feeling than I had expected. At that point, I wasn’t hooked the way I was in Air Awakens, so I shrugged, closed the book and went to sleep early. The next morning, I got up early and picked Fire Falling back up. I just expected to read for a few minutes and the go on with my day. Imagine my surprise when suddenly […]

Mini Reviews: Nimona and Seconds

Mini Reviews: Nimona and Seconds

I really liked this book. Nimona is a shapeshifter. She’s able to transform herself into any animate creature, like talking sharks! She shows up and convinces Lord Ballister Blackheart to take her on as his sidekick. Ballister is an evil supervillian with an axe to grind against the Institution in general and its top agent, Ambrosius, specifically. Unfortunately, he is also extremely reluctant to actually hurt anyone, much to Nimona’s dismay. Both of them are intent on disrupting the Institution’s plans as much as possible, if in completely separate ways. This book started as an online comic, so it has a special place in my heart.  I loved the spiky, funky art style and the relationship between all the characters; even between the villian, Ballister, and the hero, Ambrosius. Twitter recommended this one to me, and it was definitely a win. When I picked up Seconds I had no idea what it was about. However, on page 48 it’s revealed that Katie is gifted with a do-over and I knew immediately that it would be a instant win with me. I love time travel stories, especially when the main character gets a chance to go back and change something and gets to see how the small change ripples and enacts huge differences in the future. The Groundhog Day trope is one of my favorites. This was the second Groundhog Day esque […]
