Think of Our Reviews As Introductions or First Dates
We all know that nothing replaces reading an entire book (especially in one sitting, over a slow, breezy weekend…)
Think of our book reviews as first dates. They are deeper relationships than the ones we share with strangers from a distance, but they don’t require intense commitment.
We hope you enjoy. Please, be our guest.
Having read Like Hell by Madeline Stanford some time ago, I was expecting this story to be good, and it didn’t disappoint. The story is centred around Aurora, whose Grandmother predicts the dates on which the pair of them will die. When her Grandmother’s prediction for her death date comes true, Rory starts a countdown to her own death and starts trying to live life to the full.
Zat is a dreamer from the distant future—a time when humans no longer dream and Earth is a desolate wasteland. He dreams of the beautiful Earth of the past, and a fiery-haired beauty named Babe. Against the wisdom of his peers, Zat decides to risk everything to travel back in time and live in Babe’s dreams…
After the death of its duchess, Safrana is in turmoil. Two equally powerful families vie for power, quickly turning the beautiful citadels of Safrana into a hellish warscape. While, on the outside, there is a desperate search for the one true heir to the throne. The one man who could stop an encroaching civil war and force the citadels into peace.
Hilary has one goal for her first year in junior high: to become popular. But her plans are turned upside down when her best friend leaves for the summer and a quirky girl named Kallie moves in next door. Kallie paints constellations on her ceiling, sleeps in a hammock, and enacts fantastical plays in front of cute boys on the beach.
I’ve had this book for a while, and I put of reading it for some time. Mostly because I’ve become very wary about books focused on being transgender. Not because the stories are bad, or unimportant. Mostly because they tend to be very similar. It’s only been two weeks since I read Meredith Russo’s debut, If I Was Your Girl, and so I was worried the story lines would be too similar. However, this book gave me a very pleasant and refreshing surprise.
Plains of Sand and Steel tells the story a young woman who rises up to take charge of the empire after the sudden death of her royal husband. It features her courageous attempts to conceal a secret and protect her people from the invaders. The novel is war, revenge, friendship, betrayal, and love beautifully entangled in an fantasy setting.
