Yes, another book by Cheryl Low. I can easily say she is one of my favorite authors! Infernal is a horror story, so quite different from the Crowns & Ash series, and it really shows how good Cheryl Low’s writing is. She does not only write fantasy well, but also modern day horror stories.
This book starts out with a mystery island and a shark expedition. But not all is what it seems… I can’t really explain a lot more because I don’t want to give it away. In short: I loved this book! It was suspenseful all the way to the end. And the end!! Loved it!! Do read it!!
Jag fick möjligheten att få ett recensionsexemplar av boken Legend av Stephanie Garber. Det här är uppföljaren till Caraval som jag läste förra året (läs den här).
I Caraval får vi följa Scarlett på ett äventyr för att rädda sin syster Tella. I den här boken är det istället Tella som är huvudpersonen. Det tycker jag är ett bra val av författaren och det är roligt att få följa med en ny person, som ändå är så sammanknuten med Scarlett som vi fick följa i boken innan.
Det här var en väldigt händelserik bok och jag ville hela tiden fortsätta läsa och se hur det skulle gå. Jag tycker till och med att den var bättre än den första boken. Det ska bli roligt att läsa nästa bok när den kommer ut nästa år!
Red is the color of love. And death. Rebellion is coming.
Cheryl Low did it again. This series has it all, decadence, drugs, magic, plotting, pastries, fashion and rebellion! I loved this book as well as the first book. I can easily say it is my favorite fantasy series.
This book takes place a couple of years after the first one. Things have changed, but some things have not. It’s fun to revisit the Realm again and see and take part in all the new things and intrigues. This book picked up the pace and I feel like it was even better than the first one. Maybe because the characters aren’t new to us and instead we get to see the development. I loved AviSariel and Fay in this book! Strong, feisty women with a flair for fashion. I do love how this series isn’t constricted by fantasy “rules”. We do have amazing gowns and such, but there is also a modern twist to this series and the fashion in it. I love it!
Other than fashion, this book has a great story and development. I literally could not put it down because I needed to know what would happen next. I won’t spoil anything, but if you like drama, fantasy and intrigues you’ll like this series!
Here is a quote by Publisher’s Weekly
“This lush fantasy stays ferociously readable while offering a world that’s easy to love: unhappy people waking up to realize there’s more to life, and greeting it with curious wonder. This belle epoque–flavored series will appeal to readers who like their fantasy politics splashed with hope.”
I knew I wanted to read The Continuum by Wendy Nikel as soon as I read the blurb. It did not disappoint!
“Elise Morley is an expert on the past who’s about to get a crash course in the future.”
I have read a few books where someone travels in time or places but none quite like this one. I fully enjoyed the time traveling concept and as a reader you were thrust into the story immediately. It’s not a brick of a book but I find it to be well written and making me want for more when it is over! This book has not only a great concept of time travel but also a very exciting story and a fantastic ending!
Luckily there is a sequel called “The Grandmother Paradox”.
I don’t want to say too much about this book because I don’t want to perhaps spoil something from book one. Just know there is a second book and I’m looking forward to a possible third book!
I started last summer but put it on a long hiatus during the winter. I am very happy with the result, but there was a reason to why I put it on hiatus. The yarn.
I used Hedgehog Fibres yarn for this sweater. I love the colours of Hedgehog Fibres yarn, but it turns out I’m not fond of knitting with the yarn. I used the yarn base “Sock” which is 90% wool (superwash) and 10% nylon. I found it both stiff and so thin my hands cramped.
I do love how the sweater looks but if I did another So Faded, I would chose a different yarn.
For this one I used the colourways (in this order): Monet, Damp, Crybaby, Monarch.
I loved the pattern though! Easy to read and knit, nothing complicated. I love the shoulder decoration with the purl knits! So Faded Sweater by Andrea Mowry. I’m even thinking of making one of these in solid colour. Loved it and love how it wears.
This is the sequel to Vanity in Dust by Cheryl Low. You should not miss this series! I know I am biased because I totally love this series and I have read them over and over. But I totally recommend this series anyway. Give it a try! And don’t forget to leave a review!
I will write a more in-depth post about the process of making the cover. I’m just so happy it is out in the world!
