Book: Curse of the Sphinx
Author: Raye Wagner
Format: E-Book
Year: 2015
Rating: ★★★★ / 5 

 

First description of the book that you see on Goodreads is:

“How long can a monster stay hidden in plain sight?”

This one question already grips your attention and makes you wonder about what kind of monster they might be talking about.

Hope Nicholas is just a seventeen-year old girl who has been moving from place to place her entire life, keeping herself safe and staying low so her existence wouldn’t be noticed by unwanted personas. However, no matter how low of a profile you keep, just one mistake and they will know about you, they know where you are and they will come after you. This is what Hope had to learn from a very early age and it is what her mother always taught her to be, Careful. Continue reading “Review: Curse of the Sphinx by Raye Wagner”

Book: Kill School:Slice
Author: Karen Carr
Format: E-book (Kindle)
Year: 2016
Rating: ★★★★★ / 5

A dystopian Young Adult novel full of surprises and new concepts – that is what Kill School: Slice was for me, it is difficult to find words to describe and conclude what I felt while reading it. So let’s start with a small overview of the plot.

In this world no-one expects their 16th birthday, on the contrary it is a very dreadful day everyone is afraid of. “What colour will I get” is the only questions children are concerned about, “Will I get a green emerald or a blue sapphire or maybe, for the worst of cases, Will I receive red ruby?”

This futuristic society, where human DNA was modified to the point that it allowed people to live for a very long time without worrying about dying from illness or old age, which ultimately gave every person an order, a permission to kill to control the population.

Kill to live. A life for a life.

What do you know about Norse mythology? Greek mythology is very popular among book writers, the most notable example would be the Persy Jackson series, that has a sizable audience (I still haven’t read any book in the series and I am very ashamed to admit it, but I eventually will get there, promise!).

Runes series by Ednah Walters is a YA paranormal tales built in a modern world with connection to Norse mythology. Odin, Freya, Loki, Norns – these were the names I’ve heard before and even knew some myths around or at least what they represented, it was entertaining seeing how it all got connected and developed with our main characters.
