New Reviews

Morning Star is the third book in Pierce Brown’s Red Rising Trilogy. While I did not enjoy it as much as the previous two books, it nevertheless provides a satisfying if uneven conclusion to the saga.


I was only a few pages into reading this début novel from Lenora Bell when I had to ask myself why I’d requested a review copy in the first place. It’s part of the book reviewer’s job to give new authors a try, but I think that probably the alarm bells should have started ringing the minute I read in the synopsis that the heroine’s name is Charlene. In 19th century England. Not only does that appear to be a name that didn’t originate until the 20th century, it’s not one that has really taken off here. Even the two minutes research I have just done revealed both those facts immediately.
