ARC Review: The Hemlock Queen by Hannah Whitten

Today’s review is about THE HEMLOCK QUEEN by Hannah Whitten. It’s the second book in The Nightshade Crown trilogy. I really enjoyed this darker continuation of the series. Moreover, it expands on the origin story of the gods and a goal generations in the making.

ARC Review: Fathomfolk by Eliza Chan

Today’s review is about FATHOMFOLK by Eliza Chan, which is the first novel in the Drowned World series. It’s a fantasy story that skillfully incorporates many real world experiences, such as immigration, racism, and change. This is a wonderful debut novel by Eliza Chan.

However, I noticed that the average Goodreads review is surprisingly low. This is something I genuinely don’t understand. So, in an effort to communicate why I think this is a great book, I wrote a somewhat longer review. I hope this convinces you to check it out for yourself rather than rely on an averaged star rating.

ARC Review: That Time I Got Drunk And Saved A Demon by Kimberly Lemming

Today’s review is about THAT TIME I GOT DRUNK AND SAVED A DEMON by Kimberly Lemming. It’s the first book in the Mead Mishaps series, but it reads as a standalone. Here, Cinnamon suddenly finds herself on a quest with a demon to slay an evil witch who enslaves demon kind. Along the way they banter, kick butt, and fall for each other.
