I received a copy of this story from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads blurb: 

Michael and Claudia’s decision to move back to Crossroads was to keep their children safe, but they can’t escape who they are. Their children, Zachary and Lucia, were destined to be demon hunters—Venators. From the age they were able to hold a sword, they were trained to become the best and to ensure they would become leaders one day.

I’ve read this story about two weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. The thing is, when I’m thinking about it now there’s not much I can tell you. It was a nice and cozy read that introduced interesting characters and gave you a view of the world’s situation. It also shows, that within all the battle and tough situations there’s a time for joy and fun. Continue reading “Nice, but forgetable”

Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters

It’s been two weeks since my last Funny Friday, but for some reason, I couldn’t get into writing. But here we are again with two novels. Yes, only two single books. I thought I’d add one more, but somehow it didn’t fit. It’s not going to be a long post [I think].

Let’s start with a two-author story. Two fantastic authors that made an amazing job writing this book. The one and only…

Good Omens

Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

And try to tell me that book’s no good, I dare you!

The lazy or super busy ones had an occasion to listen to the adaptation of this story on BBC Radio. It was a rather good adaptation, so if you’ll ever have another chance just listen to it.

I’m not going to write a review, mostly because I just found some really nice ones on GR and I feel mine wouldn’t be as good, I mean, check out the first paragraph of this one: Jeremy Zerbe’s Reviews.

Why do I love this book? Continue reading “Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters”

As promised last week I’ve got some treats for you this time 🙂 I hope you’ll like them as much as I did.

 

1. The Children of Witchwood by Wally K. Daly

Jackie Lamont, a student at a local college, goes missing mysteriously. And when she reappears, just as mysteriously, she seems to have somehow been given special telepathic powers.

Meanwhile, the Cranford Family have guarded a secret for hundreds of years – and Jackie Lamont is a threat.

But BQ Brown of the Ministry of Defence is investigating a possible link between the burning of six children as witches in the 17th century and Jackie’s disappearance.

For a start a story of witches, magic and mystery. It’s a bit scary, good if you’re in need of something like this :). I’ve listened to it about two years ago and I’m thinking of doing it again.

The demon inside me

Portia is a fast paced book full of various worlds, demons, dragons and magic with an enchanting heroine on the lead.

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

It seems that in times when Void threatens the worlds to collapse, even a peaceful, book loving princess must embark on a quest and try to save everyone. And who might be a perfect partner in her adventures? How about a handsome dragon emperor Tempest?

I felt this book was kind of chaotic. There were those strange moments when one chapter ends with supposed peace and quiet and the next started with a boom without a reason. Portia and Tempest were traveling randomly from place to place. I know they were supposed to be on this quest, but that also felt kind of sudden.

Actually I think I’m missing some information, maybe they were in previous books? I was completely lost in what was happening there. OK, there is this Void that’s supposed to be either some kind of a big ass monster or a place from which monsters come to other worlds. I didn’t really get that. Also, the worlds… so there are four worlds that are somehow joined together, but how are our heroes transporting between them? Are there some kind of portals? Or maybe you just wish yourself somewhere? I told you I was lost right? Continue reading “The demon inside me”
