Review: RULE OF WOLVES (KING OF SCARS #2) by Leigh Bardugo

I’ve read it and the best I can say about it is that it’s finally over. This the biggest disappointment of my reading life. King of Scars was a step back down the ladder, Rule of Wolves was the equivalent of jumping into an abyss. Because the plot is a clusterfucking convenience that doesn’t make any sense at all – and because this whole book is basically a marketing skit for the adaptation.

Review: SENLIN ASCENDS (THE BOOKS OF BABEL #1)

So. I finally read this. Many thanks go out to everyone who kept recommending this one to me because reading this has been a joy. The first couple of chapters were just okay, but once Thomas Senlin entered the Parlor, this had me hooked.

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: MALICE (THE FAITHFUL AND THE FALLEN #1) by John Gwynne

Unpopular opinion time once again.
Second read of the year, second highly anticipated series of the year, second disappointment. And this time it’s definitely not a thing of taste: in my opinion, Malice, a book I’ve heard mostly gushing reviews about, is just mediocre. Obvious plot, boring characters, terrible tropes I hate.
