Review: Forest of Ruin

Forest of Ruin Forest of Ruin by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the Age of Legend series. This was the best of the three. I am a huge fan of Canadian author Kelley Armstrong. Her books are filled with wonderful complex characters and well-written stories. This series is about twin girls who have been selected from birth to serve their kingdom by banning evil spirits or helping other spirits to transition to the other world. Their village is destroyed and they embark on a long journey to save the children who were kidnapped during the attack. Along the journey, they will encounter good and bad people. They will meet mystical creatures and find love. The series is a continuous adventure filled with nail biting moments and grand victories. Although this is a YA series, it can appeal to anyone. The end was left opened and I would not be surprised to see more books in this series.

Review: Chosen

Chosen Chosen by Denise Grover Swank
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was an interesting beginning for a good versus evil series of books. The plot is interesting, but not new! The characters have extreme highs and lows which can be a bit too dramatic to my taste. They are well defined nonetheless. It will be interesting to find out where Denise Grover Swank will take us and where we will end up.

Review: Silence

Silence Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the series Hush Hush. I read the first two books several years ago and liked the first book and did not like much the second. In the middle of reading the third book, I had to google the author to remind myself who she was. She is an adult and yet her writing is childish and repetitive and not to mention full of useless details... it feels very amateurish. The third book did not redeem the series and I will have to eventually get to the forth book in my lifetime. Not looking forward to it.

Review: Glass Sword

Glass Sword Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Red Queen series. Second books are often not as good as the first or the third book of the series. I think this one is an exception. The story was exciting and filled with action. The characters continued to developed and mature. I am enjoying this series so far and I am looking to read the next book when it comes out in 2017.
