    one step forward, two steps back - thats what happened to miss evelyn skye with the release of this book and its so unfortunate. this book reads like a first draft that hasnt seen any sort of editing or polishing. it has the promise of a great story and all the basic ideas are ther...

    I feel very confused... Circle of Shadows was one of those books that I was dying to dive into. Especially with all the marketing around it. However, after finishing this audiobook.. I feel so confused about things that happened in this book. Now the book started off with a bang ...

    The premise of the this story sounded SO incredibly good but GAHHHH this was just so overly descriptive. Like, Strange the Dreamer descriptive. Which now that I look back on I also should have DNF'ed. I was about 25% of the way through when I started skimming this, because I really ...

    Gemina twins, Sora and Daemon, are two apprentice Tiger warriors. Sora completes all challenges set during their training with an unpractised ease and Daemon fights with a whip-sharp speed and skill, making them a deadly duo. But apparently not to those in charge. Their discovery, t...

    The starting was great but while reading further I felt that the same thing was repeated over and over again. But then again the world building was so good although the story began in a slow pace. The romantic side of the story was totally unexpected at the end. And there were some...

    This was an ok-ish book. For the life of me I couldn?t think of the characters as 18 year olds, most of the time I thought they were around 12-15. The writing is too simplistic, maybe that was the reason I read it as a middle grade book, the premise is interesting but that too is...

    This review and others like it can be found on my blog, Vicariously & Voraciously ARC provided through Edelweiss for a fair review. No star rating due to DNF status. Sora and Daemon, her gemina, or bonded warrior are about to graduate to be taiga warriors. But before they g...

    This book really surprised me. I knew it sounded good, but I'm shocked at how much I loved it. The pacing was great and I read it way faster than most fantasies. The characters were what stood out most. Sora (spirit) had so much strength. She never gave up and wanted t...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I hadn't DNFed a book in a year and a half before I dove into this one. And I can honestly say I've never been sadder to not finish a book. But it simply was not going well...

    Guys, this book was really good. I enjoyed it very much. It was very different and at least for me, I got introduced to a world I've never heard of. Circle of Shadows follows the story of the Kingdom of Kichona (I still don't know how to pronounce that). The book is written in the...

    I am thinking magical ninja warriors at the moment, just that will suffice. In this world those with magic (ok this country, which is rather unfair to be honest, why just this country!?) are sent to become Taiga warriors. Trained to be the best warriors and to hone their skills, to pro...

    *Many thanks to HCC Frenzy for sending me an ARC* This book was just all over the place, in my very honest, humble opinion. And frankly it did not live up to my love for Skye?s debut, The Crown?s Game. After about 50ish pages or so I started noticing that this book wasn?t real...

    Another ARC found at work, and another story greatly enjoyed. The latest from Evelyn Skye gets a lot of comparisons to the works of Leigh Bardugo and Rene Ahdieh, but I'm also going to offer up some comparison to Julie Kagawa's recent feudal Japanese-inspired dark fantasy, Shadow ...

    *I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss for review purposes* I finally got a chance to read this book!!! It was very different than any other fantasy books I?ve read and I really loved it. I enjoyed the story from the beginning to the end, it was ...

    Another ARC found at work, and another story greatly enjoyed. The latest from Evelyn Skye gets a lot of comparisons to the works of Leigh Bardugo and Rene Ahdieh, but I'm also going to offer up some comparison to Julie Kagawa's recent feudal Japanese-inspired dark fantasy, Shadow ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I hadn't DNFed a book in a year and a half before I dove into this one. And I can honestly say I've never been sadder to not finish a book. But it simply was not going well...

    Guys, this book was really good. I enjoyed it very much. It was very different and at least for me, I got introduced to a world I've never heard of. Circle of Shadows follows the story of the Kingdom of Kichona (I still don't know how to pronounce that). The book is written in the...

    I am thinking magical ninja warriors at the moment, just that will suffice. In this world those with magic (ok this country, which is rather unfair to be honest, why just this country!?) are sent to become Taiga warriors. Trained to be the best warriors and to hone their skills, to pro...

    *Many thanks to HCC Frenzy for sending me an ARC* This book was just all over the place, in my very honest, humble opinion. And frankly it did not live up to my love for Skye?s debut, The Crown?s Game. After about 50ish pages or so I started noticing that this book wasn?t real...

    Another ARC found at work, and another story greatly enjoyed. The latest from Evelyn Skye gets a lot of comparisons to the works of Leigh Bardugo and Rene Ahdieh, but I'm also going to offer up some comparison to Julie Kagawa's recent feudal Japanese-inspired dark fantasy, Shadow ...

    *I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss for review purposes* I finally got a chance to read this book!!! It was very different than any other fantasy books I?ve read and I really loved it. I enjoyed the story from the beginning to the end, it was ...

    one step forward, two steps back - thats what happened to miss evelyn skye with the release of this book and its so unfortunate. this book reads like a first draft that hasnt seen any sort of editing or polishing. it has the promise of a great story and all the basic ideas are ther...

    2 stars This book befuddles me. Despite the fact that it is extremely dull and boring and mediocre, the cultural elements in this book confused me. A lot. I really enjoyed Skye?s debut series?The Crown?s Game?a Russian inspired fantasy with really lush storytellin...

    Work hard. Mischief harder. Sora is an 18 year old taiga apprentice. She is in her last year of school and bound to Deamon, another apprentice and her gemina, through a mental connection. Both of them have been marked by the goddess Luna to be warriors and are trained in combat with...

    official blurb TK. i loved this! ...

    Circle of Shadows was an exceptional read. I loved every moment. ...

    3.5 stars Thank you to the Balzer + Bray for sending me a review copy via Edelweiss and finished copy in exchange for an honest review. This was one of my most anticipated 2019 releases, but it just wasn?t for me. Instead, it was exhausting. And also one of my biggest letdo...

    If you like anime, you should give this book a shot! ...

    I feel very confused... Circle of Shadows was one of those books that I was dying to dive into. Especially with all the marketing around it. However, after finishing this audiobook.. I feel so confused about things that happened in this book. Now the book started off with a bang ...

    The premise of the this story sounded SO incredibly good but GAHHHH this was just so overly descriptive. Like, Strange the Dreamer descriptive. Which now that I look back on I also should have DNF'ed. I was about 25% of the way through when I started skimming this, because I really ...

    Gemina twins, Sora and Daemon, are two apprentice Tiger warriors. Sora completes all challenges set during their training with an unpractised ease and Daemon fights with a whip-sharp speed and skill, making them a deadly duo. But apparently not to those in charge. Their discovery, t...

    The starting was great but while reading further I felt that the same thing was repeated over and over again. But then again the world building was so good although the story began in a slow pace. The romantic side of the story was totally unexpected at the end. And there were some...

    This was an ok-ish book. For the life of me I couldn?t think of the characters as 18 year olds, most of the time I thought they were around 12-15. The writing is too simplistic, maybe that was the reason I read it as a middle grade book, the premise is interesting but that too is...

    Not a huge fan of the cover =/ --- Pushed back to January 22, 2019... :( ---- OMG, this sounds great! ...

    This review and others like it can be found on my blog, Vicariously & Voraciously ARC provided through Edelweiss for a fair review. No star rating due to DNF status. Sora and Daemon, her gemina, or bonded warrior are about to graduate to be taiga warriors. But before they g...

    I've been waiting for an arc approval! ?? ...

    2.5 Stars ?The Council pressed their fists over their chests. Every single apprentice and warrior rose from their seats and followed. ?Cloak of night. Heart of light,? they shouted in unison. It was a pledge of love and loyalty. And it was a battle cry.? I was hoping to fin...

    WARNING: SPOILERS In my opinion, this book is very interesting but it personally feels a little undeveloped/short on details about the world. For instance, the characters who wield magic are known as Taigas. These taigas have access to magic which allows them to do things suc...
