The Iron Witch - Karen Mahoney - Review

Book: The Iron Witch Author: Karen Mahoney Publisher: Corgi ISBN: 9780552563819 Rating: A+
Freak. That's what they call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood at Ironbridge High School. A horrific fey attack that killed her father when she was just a child left Donna branded with iron tattoos that cover her hands and arms - and magically enhanced strength, that she now does all she can to hide. Now, after ten years of wishing for a normal life, Donna finally accepts her role in the centuries-old war against the darkest outcasts of Faerie - the dark elves. Aided by Xan, a gorgeous half-fey dropout, Donna must save her best friend's life - and that means betraying one of the world's greatest secrets and confronting the very thing that destroyed her family.
The Iron Witch is one of special books that you’ll remember forever, and will read many times over again. After receiving it last week I have already read it three times and every time I love it. It is a brand new Faerie book and it…

The Demon Trappers: Forsaken - Jana Oliver - Review

Book: The Demon Trappers: Forsaken Author: Jana Oliver Publisher: PanMacmillan ISBN: 9780330519472 Rating: A
Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he's God's gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass. One thing's for sure - if she doesn't keep her wits about her there'll be hell to pay...
Okay, so let’s start off with the cover this time round, mainly because it caught my attention out of all the other books on the PanMacmillan website, but the book was amazing. It was, immense, intense and EPIC. It had me flipping pages all night just to see what happens, and boy this book blew me away, knocked me off my feet, grip…

The Replacement - Brenna Yovanoff - Review

Book: The Replacement Author: Brenna Yovanoff Publisher: Simon and Schuster ISBN: 9781847388391 Rating: A
Mackie Doyle is a replacement - a fairy child left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago, to replace the baby when it was stolen away by the fey. So though he lives in the small town of Gentry, Mackie's real home is the fey world of tunnels and black, murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. Now, because his fey blood gives him fatal allergies to iron, blood and consecrated ground, Mackie is slowly dying in the human world. Mackie would give anything just to be normal, to live quietly amongst humans, practice his bass guitar and spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably back home to the fey underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem, where he must face down the dark creatures, rescue the child, and find his rightful place - in our world, or theirs.
The replacement is one of thos…

Halo - Alexandra Adornetto - Review

Book: Halo Author: Alexandra Adornetto Publisher: ATOM ISBN: 9781907410758 Rating: A+
Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone?especially herself...Is love a great enough power against evil?
Halo is a new, intoxicating Novel. From the first sentence I was drawn in and to be honest, this book is a piece of heaven. The story is thrilling, enticing, clever and unique and if I had to describe it in three words it would be: I LOVED IT!
To start off the first thing I picked up on was the description. There was so much detail in so little sentences and the whole book just played out in my head. Another compliment is that it was very well written, especially for someone of Adornetto’s age. The writing flowed smoothly and was beautiful. The b…
