I decided to add wrap ups at the end of every month just to get a better overview of my reading progress. Here I start with what I read in the month of January. Not a great start to the year but I like the way this collage turned out to be.
If you like historical fiction like The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar then check out my post on Three Historical Fiction Novels with a Twist of Magic.
King’s Cage is the concluding novel in Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series. There are a lot of different opinions out there regarding this series, and despite the fact that the story got weaker as we progressed throughout the series I enjoyed reading about a world were people are divided by their blood. The ruling class has silver blood and magical abilities and the poor and underclass have red blood. Our heroine has red blood but she somehow has superpowers… An interesting premise.
If you want to continue with color coded fantasy worlds, read this following series. The reds in Pierce Brown’s world are the lowest of the low, mine workers and the gold are the gods in this society, engineers to perform better and look better. And then we have a variety of other colors in between, silver, blue, brown and many more.
Morning Star is the third installment of Pierce Brown’s Red Rising trilogy, I really enjoyed this dystopian SF-fantasy blend, it’s full of action and set on different planets among which Mars. If you’re looking for a highly engaging book to speed through this is one for you. Check out my thoughts on the first book in the trilogy, Red Rising.Follow me:
