Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer - Review

Book: Artemis Fowl Author: Eoin Colfer Publisher: Puffin ISBN: 9780141312125 Rating: A+
Twelve-year-old villain, Artemis Fowl, is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. His bold and daring plan is to hold a leprechaun to ransom. But he's taking on more than he bargained for when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit). For a start, leprechaun technology is more advanced than our own. Add to that the fact that Holly is a true heroine and that her senior officer Commander Root will stop at nothing to get her back and you've got the mother of all sieges brewing!
Artemis Fowl: Bad Boy, Awesome Boy, Genius; both him and the book, from the first sentence I was confined by Time-Stop towers and within hours had finished the epic novel. It is most definitely one of the best books I have ever read, gripping, intense and powerful, it blew me away.  I’ll give it to Colfer, he has an amazing imagination, and the description was fanta…

The Hunting Ground had me hooked from the moment I picked it up. The Hunting Ground is a fantastical, fast paced thriller with a touch supernatural. Definitely everything I wanted. I kept me engrossed and left me wanting more and the end of each chapter. It had twists and turns and the detail was thrilling. It kept me on the tips of my toes throughout the who…

Night Star - Alyson Noel - Review

Book: Night Star Author: Alyson Noel Publisher: PanMacmillan ISBN: 9780330528115 Rating:A+
At the start of this mesmerizing new installment in the Immortals series Ever and Damen are still separated by the poison lingering in Damen’s body. Their only hope of being together is the antidote that was spilled on Jude’s shirt when he killed their enemy Roman. Now Haven is in possession of the shirt—and she’s out for revenge. Blinded by rage and grief, Haven— who blames Ever for killing Roman—could be Ever and Damen’s deadliest enemy yet. Ever is forced to make an impossible choice—allow Haven to destroy her and her dearest friends, or send her to the Shadowland, the abyss for lost souls.
Now where to start with this book... definitely not what I expected but in a good way! This book was a rollercoaster, with ups, downs and wows. Night Star is a fantastic, action packed story with a touch of Magick.
The book focuses around Haven and Ever’s hate for each other, and how one wants to turn the other …
