BOOK TITLE: TRUTHWITCH

AUTHOR: SUSAN DENNARD

GENRE: FANTASY

STARS: ****

This story is about witches with different powers and when powerful witches start fighting among themselves, a huge war is inevitable.
First of all thanks to the publisher for giving a review copy of this book. The cover is so stunning and with velvet finish, I simply love touching it.
Next is the concept of thread. It is important to understand what the author actually tried to mean by it but of course it’s up to the reader how they interprate. I personally imagined that thread was some sort of connection that looks like glowing fibre. They are visible to other witches but not to other normal people. Their colour may vary according to the category of the witch. That’s my concept.
Now, let’s come to the story. This story is set on the Witchland and it’s mainly based on two young witches named Safiya and Iseult. Safiya is a rare kind of Truthwitch. They got in trouble with a powerful Guildmaster and his bloodwitch named Aeduan. He is after Safiya to capture her. Iseult and Safi were thread sisters who wants to be free. Both Safi and Iseult have different and difficult childhood. On the other hand, the various clans of Witchland are clashing against each other for breaking treaties, so a war is coming. It’s upto Safi and Iseult to save each other from this both trouble.
There are a few things about this book that I would like to say in points-
1. Too many characters and it’s sometimes hard to remember with so many things happenings.
2. This plot is full of actions, magic and plot twists. So if you love them, you may pick this book and give it a try.
3. The author has built the characters and story of these two individual young witches very discretely which I loved. But it also felt a bit lagged.
4. The concept of witch and magic and war is nothing new, so it is not unique.
5. There is also romance other than action and magic but it was nicely mixed with the flow of this story.

According to me, it was a good fantasy novel, may be gripping for someone but not that much for me. Overall it’s pretty well elaborately written plot.

BOOK TITLE: THE SONG RISING (3#THE BONE SEASON)

AUTHOR: SAMANTHA SHANNON

GENRE: DYSTOPIAN FANTASY

STARS: *****

So, finally I read this book and it amazed me. Samantha Shannon didn’t fail to imoress with her strong imaginative skills again. There are quite a few series who has got sequels equally intriguing abd entertaining as the its 1st book and The Bone Season series is one of them.

Paige Mahoney, a 19 year old clairvoyant, the dreamwalker/the dark moth became the Underqueen of the criminal world of Scion London. She’s been cobtrolling all the activities and working with other mime lords. But Scion is devising new technologies to bring the Voyant world down. On the other hand Jaxon, Paige’s previous mime lord joined Nashira. Scion implemented Senshields, a secret scanner in every possible public places like atm,taxi,phone booth. lives of voyants are at stake. Tenkerbell who is sponsporing the activities of mime lord wants Paige to follow her instruction. But Paige don’t want to get instructed by some non humans. Even she’s having difficulty in freely interacting with Warden after becoming the Underqueen. With Scion’s increased anti-voyant security system it’s upto Paige and her associates to save the criminal world.

Well, if possible, I could give 50000……/5 stars to this book. I love the plot sooooo much. Since Paige is my favourite female fictional character, I expect a lot from her and she didn’t dishearten me. The adventures, plot twists, action everyrhing was on point. In this book, Paige travels different parts of Great Britain in order find clues to destroy the core of the Senshield, which I really liked. The ending iept me want for more. Now that Paige and Warden are sailing to Paris, things are going to be more intense in book 4. I highly recommend this book to any dystopia lover.

BOOK TITLE: A COURT OF MIST AND FURY(2#A COURT OF THORNES AND ROSES)

AUTHOR: SARAH J. MAAS

GENRE: SUPPOSED TO BE FANTASY BUT IS ROMANCE

STARS: ****

This book is soooo hyped among bookstagrammers. It’s actually hard to avoid this book and it’s spoilers. I liked the first book though many people didn’t much have high positive thoughts.

The first thing I want to say is the more I read about Feyre, the more I dislike her and the more I read about Lucien,Rhys, Cassian, Mor, Azriel I love them. The book was huge but the plot was really captivating. Most interesting part started from the second part. Another thing, many people hate Tamlin, I don’t hate him like that. I dislike that he’s possessive and prevented Feyre to be free and roam around the spring Court. There were some adult scenes too. This book can be a fantasy novel but it’s more concentrated on romance(which to some extent was disgusting), things between Feyre and Tamlin or Feyre and Rhysand was intense(let me not tell in what way).
If this book is to be described to be two sentences it will be- “Tamlin wants to marry Feyre but Feyre wants to be free while Rhys realises Feyre to be his mate and brought her to Night Court. He trained(banged) her to fight in a war lead by the king of Hybern(there was no wae, btw) and then Feyre comes back to Tamlin ro save her sisters.

So basically, Feyre is being thrown and caught by Tamlin and Rhysand in turn. LOL
