I read SCYTHE because of Scifi July and I absolutely loved it! The concept, the world-building, the writing and the story. It ticked all the boxes! Read my review and then grab yourself a copy to read!
Reading my first cli-fi novel ever equals me having to write a review on it, no? So here it is!
July reading challenge, you ask? Why yes, of course! Science fiction it is!
Two queer authors got together and decided to write a queer retelling of King Arthur - science fiction-style! Is it worth it? YES, YES AND YES.
I don't usually post reviews on sequels on my blog, so you know that when I do.. It's either because it was extremely good.. or extremely bad.. I'm thrilled to say Archenemies belongs to the first group because I absolutely loved the freak out of it and.. read it in no time? At all?
I love myself a good story with royalty so.. you could say my interest was piqued from the get-go with this one. A girl, living for freedom, who suddenly has to give up everything in order to become the future queen? Yes, please! Give me that!
I've mentioned her a couple of times on my blog, and it's time for another one. Chelscey Clayton, author of The Monster of Selkirk-series, is one of the first authors I had a closer connection with. Her book was the first one I won since starting my blog and it claimed a special piece of my heart. Safe to say that when Chelscey recommended Angelfall to me, I had to buy myself a copy! And two months ago now I actually read it as well! The only thing we can do, right now, is hope it's better than the disappointment of Out of the Blue..
