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..
The Raging Ones had been on my ARC-TBR for quite some time before I finally went and picked it up. Having read the blurb, I was immediately intrigued by the thought of people knowing their death days, not to mention the very rare few who dodged theirs. I'm still not sure whether or not I'd want to know my own death day, to be honest. Would you?
