The Beautiful Ones (The Beautiful Ones #1) by Kody Boye Book Review 14, Oct

4.5/5

THE BEAUTIFUL ONES by Koby Boye is a Young Adult dystopian novel with a twist. Rather than being about a young action heroine who is struggling against the tyranny of the week, it is the story of a woman who wins a peculiar "beauty pageant" that results in her becoming one of the Beautiful Ones. They are people who have been selected for their strong genetics to be the pampered and beloved wives to a eugenicist experiment in the Glittering City. If this sounds like there's a shoe waiting to drop, you'd be half-right.

THE CITY OF LOCKED DOORS by Tristen Kozinski is a book that is difficult to describe but if I were to do so, then I would say it's something that reminds me a bit of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS or WRAITH: THE OBLIVION. The City of Umbras is a fascinating and terrifying place that defies all conventional logic with its necromantic inhabitants.

Thief of the Night Guild (Queen of Thieves #2) by Andy Peloquin Book Review 01, Oct

4.5/5

THIEF OF THE NIGHT GUILD is the sequel to CHILD OF THE NIGHT GUILD and probably one of my all-time favorite indie fantasy series. Andy Peloquin did something I was very annoyed by as for years I had the idea for doing a story about a young woman in a classic Dungeons and Dragons fantasy Thieves' Guild. Unfortunately, I can't write that book now as Andy did a much better job than I ever could.
