Review: THE SPRING OF THE RAM (HOUSE OF NICCOLO #2)

And so it begins, and so once again Dear Dorothy has proven me wrong. Remember what I, in blissful ignorance have claimed after reading the prequel: that this series was great, but could never be as breathtaking and extraordinary as the Lymond Chronicles. I take it back. It can be as good, and this installment is as good: this is another testament to my favourite author’s brilliance.

Review: BEST SERVED COLD (FIRST LAW WORLD #4)

Behold: my first five star-read of 2021. ‚Best Served Cold‘ features an expertly constructed plot from the master of character writing. It’s a wild mixture of The Count of Monte Cristo and Kill Bill, a revenge story par excellence, graced with Abercrombie’s fleshed-out anti-heros: his best book yet.

Review: THE FINAL EMPIRE (MISTBORN #1)

YES! I loved it! Don’t look at me like that, I was so friggin afraid that I wouldn’t enjoy it. In a way, reading the book itself made me feel high stakes since I was so, so, so afraid that it would disappoint me as much as The Way of Kings did – and that didn’t happen!

Review: LAST ARGUMENT OF KINGS (THE FIRST LAW #3)

A dark, bloody, impressively written wrap-up to a stellar trilogy that leaves room for other books to pick up the action again. I had a hard time getting into this trilogy but in the end all I can say is: it’s one of the best trilogies I’ve ever read. Definitely the second-best trilogy I read this year after the Gentleman Bastard trology (crying intensifies will I ever get The Thorn of Emberlain?).

Rezension: Das Unsichtbare Leben der Addie LaRue

Schwab hat eine epische Geschichte voller Herzschmerz, Liebe und Cleverness geschrieben, die von ihrer außergewöhnlichen Protagonistin getragen wird: Addie LaRue ist eine Figur, die man – ironischerweise – nie vergessen wird.
