Shinji Takahashi and the Mark of the Coatl by Julie Kagawa: Review & Giveaway

Amazon, Kindle, Audible, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, TBD I’m a huge fan of Kagawa’s YA books, so I was excited to see what her MG has to offer, and I was definitely not disappointed. Apparently this book is a spin-off of existing Society of Explorers and Adventurers lore that you can find in the actual Disney theme parks. I didn’t know anything about that storytelling, but that didn’t lessen my enjoyment of the book (and I’m actually headed […]

Review – Talon by Julie Kagawa

Review – Talon by Julie Kagawa

Talon was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. So much so, that I was almost afraid to read it. I LOVE Kagawa (was so excited to meet her at BEA) and I also adore dragons, so this seemed like a match made in heaven! Then some reviews started trickling in, and they weren’t all that favorable – I started to get very nervous. But, on the positive side I knew a little bit more […]

Review: The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa

  If you haven’t read The Immortal Rules yet, go get it NOW (and then come back and read this review later—it contains spoilers from the first book in the series). Oh, Julie Kagawa, why do you torture me so?  That ending, REALLY?  REALLY?!  Okay, I think I can calm myself enough to write a review now, but honestly it’s going to be hard.  Let me start by saying, I could not wait for this […]
