    ARE YOU READY? (Okay can we take a minute to talk about how Goodreads has a "read", "to read", and "currently reading" option...but what about "wrote"? Because just clicking "I read this book" doesn't really capture what me and this book truly went through.) *added later* Pe...

    I'm always here for a good bit o' dark magic and assassination plots, so I was really excited to read Fawkes! I also know like NOTHING about the original Guy Fawkes, so this reimagining of London with Guy Fawkes' son as the narrator, and add in a bit of a devastating stone plague and a...

    ?Not a single day has been promised to me. Do not deny me this moment.? Firstly, I need to express my admiration for the stunning cover. I?m an absolute cover-judger and I must say that the art work is so alluring! It is what first drew me towards this book, and the synopsis...

    I loved it. This is a brilliant book that fulfills every expectation. Brandes turns 17th century London into a magical place. I was captivated by the allegory of her magic system and how she blended that fantasy with history. I highly recommend this gripping and beautifully crafted boo...

    Okay, so first of all, a MASSIVE thank you to Netgalley for giving me an ARC of this book!!!!! Now let's talk review. Wow! I read the Out of Time series not long before blasting through Fawkes, and while they're both very different (and I think that in general I liked OoT a litt...

    About this book: ?Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father?s plot to assassinate the king of England. Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and h...

    Originally, Fawkes was not a book I thought I would be interested in reading. Though historical fantasy sounds good to me in theory, it's always been hard for me to get past the meddling in history that the genre requires. However, in more recent years (and strangely enough, the more I...

    ?4 stars? There has always been fear. There will always be fear. It's up to us to stand tall, even when the fear demands we bow to it. I reeeeeally enjoyed this! It was a tiny bit slow at times and I didn't really care for Thomas (he was kinda selfish and whiny) but I l...

    2/5 stars Sadly this is a DNF for me. It boggles my mind how a book that supposedly has everything I love in books ended up being the book that I didn't love. Historical fiction? - check! Beautiful cover? - check! Magic woven into history? - check! YA book that doesn't h...

    A work of staggering and ineffable imagination, Fawkes bursts like a kaleidoscope of gunpowder and colour blasting a perfectly rendered London with indelible aplomb. An endearing and all too fallible hero shoves away his famous father's shadow to become the hero of the moment. Dizz...

    Oh. My. Word. THIS BOOK. IT IS MY PRECIOUSSSSS. I?ve been eagerly anticipating Fawkes ever since I read Nadine?s Out of Time series and fell in love with Parvin, Solomon, and all the rest of the gang (yes, even Skelley). And, man, it did not disappoint. So, Fawkes is se...

    I loved this!!!! Full video review to come! ...

    Definitely ended up being a page turner. Fawkes started off slow and I did end up getting a bit bored here and there. Trust me, I brought out the bottle of wine to help me get into the book. It didn't help. Once I got to about 100 pages in, I took a break. A much needed one if you a...

    Last Friday I couldn't sleep. So I curled up on the couch for an hour with Minky blanket and Fawkes--and the next morning, after some sleep, I curled up and binge-read the rest of it. :) There's always a little nervous feeling when you get a new book from an author you like. Will y...

    I loved this!!!! Full video review to come! ...

    Definitely ended up being a page turner. Fawkes started off slow and I did end up getting a bit bored here and there. Trust me, I brought out the bottle of wine to help me get into the book. It didn't help. Once I got to about 100 pages in, I took a break. A much needed one if you a...

    Last Friday I couldn't sleep. So I curled up on the couch for an hour with Minky blanket and Fawkes--and the next morning, after some sleep, I curled up and binge-read the rest of it. :) There's always a little nervous feeling when you get a new book from an author you like. Will y...

    I'm always here for a good bit o' dark magic and assassination plots, so I was really excited to read Fawkes! I also know like NOTHING about the original Guy Fawkes, so this reimagining of London with Guy Fawkes' son as the narrator, and add in a bit of a devastating stone plague and a...

    About this book: ?Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father?s plot to assassinate the king of England. Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and h...

    Originally, Fawkes was not a book I thought I would be interested in reading. Though historical fantasy sounds good to me in theory, it's always been hard for me to get past the meddling in history that the genre requires. However, in more recent years (and strangely enough, the more I...

    ?4 stars? There has always been fear. There will always be fear. It's up to us to stand tall, even when the fear demands we bow to it. I reeeeeally enjoyed this! It was a tiny bit slow at times and I didn't really care for Thomas (he was kinda selfish and whiny) but I l...

    Originally, Fawkes was not a book I thought I would be interested in reading. Though historical fantasy sounds good to me in theory, it's always been hard for me to get past the meddling in history that the genre requires. However, in more recent years (and strangely enough, the more I...

    ?4 stars? There has always been fear. There will always be fear. It's up to us to stand tall, even when the fear demands we bow to it. I reeeeeally enjoyed this! It was a tiny bit slow at times and I didn't really care for Thomas (he was kinda selfish and whiny) but I l...

    Safety is an illusion, Thomas Fawkes * * * 3 / 5 I loved the premise of Fawkes: historical British fiction with a fantasy element. Thomas Fawkes is the (invented?) son of Guy Fawkes but added into this classic story of gunpowder and treason and plot is a really innovative magic ...

    WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED. I'm going to need time to recover, my friends. Just . . . my mind is blown. L I K E S: - The characters were kind of phenomenal. It's been a long time since I've read about characters who completely stole my heart. THEY WERE AMAZING. I expected to dislike...

    2.75 stars. Historical fiction has always fascinated me in the sense that I am reading a story that takes place hundreds of years ago. I get to read about how people lived back then, important historical dates and figures, as well as learning something new. Add in elements of fa...

    Imagine a world where a mask gives you the ability to communicate with colors and move items of that color. Now imagine that in 17th century London with a cruel king and two different groups wanting the other gone. Now add a plot for the Keepers to take over the government by assassina...

    Just got approved for this on NetGalley! ...

    2/5 stars Sadly this is a DNF for me. It boggles my mind how a book that supposedly has everything I love in books ended up being the book that I didn't love. Historical fiction? - check! Beautiful cover? - check! Magic woven into history? - check! YA book that doesn't h...

    A work of staggering and ineffable imagination, Fawkes bursts like a kaleidoscope of gunpowder and colour blasting a perfectly rendered London with indelible aplomb. An endearing and all too fallible hero shoves away his famous father's shadow to become the hero of the moment. Dizz...

    FAWKESSSSSS!!!!!! I waited so long for this beautiful book to show up on my porch and OH MY WORD the cover did not disappoint. It's SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! *all the heart eyes* What I loved about this book: First, the magic system. It took me to get awhile to understand what was going on ...

    Oh. My. Word. THIS BOOK. IT IS MY PRECIOUSSSSS. I?ve been eagerly anticipating Fawkes ever since I read Nadine?s Out of Time series and fell in love with Parvin, Solomon, and all the rest of the gang (yes, even Skelley). And, man, it did not disappoint. So, Fawkes is se...

    Last Friday I couldn't sleep. So I curled up on the couch for an hour with Minky blanket and Fawkes--and the next morning, after some sleep, I curled up and binge-read the rest of it. :) There's always a little nervous feeling when you get a new book from an author you like. Will y...

    I loved this!!!! Full video review to come! ...

    Definitely ended up being a page turner. Fawkes started off slow and I did end up getting a bit bored here and there. Trust me, I brought out the bottle of wine to help me get into the book. It didn't help. Once I got to about 100 pages in, I took a break. A much needed one if you a...

    I'm always here for a good bit o' dark magic and assassination plots, so I was really excited to read Fawkes! I also know like NOTHING about the original Guy Fawkes, so this reimagining of London with Guy Fawkes' son as the narrator, and add in a bit of a devastating stone plague and a...

    ?Not a single day has been promised to me. Do not deny me this moment.? Firstly, I need to express my admiration for the stunning cover. I?m an absolute cover-judger and I must say that the art work is so alluring! It is what first drew me towards this book, and the synopsis...

    Okay, so first of all, a MASSIVE thank you to Netgalley for giving me an ARC of this book!!!!! Now let's talk review. Wow! I read the Out of Time series not long before blasting through Fawkes, and while they're both very different (and I think that in general I liked OoT a litt...

    About this book: ?Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father?s plot to assassinate the king of England. Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and h...

    Fawkes is a Historical Fantasy retelling of the Gunpowder Plot, from the perspective of Thomas--Guy Fawkes' teenage son. It follows his struggles and journey as he becomes part of this plot to kill the king and rid England of the terrible Stone Plague. The very plague that Thomas himse...

    Originally, Fawkes was not a book I thought I would be interested in reading. Though historical fantasy sounds good to me in theory, it's always been hard for me to get past the meddling in history that the genre requires. However, in more recent years (and strangely enough, the more I...

    ?4 stars? There has always been fear. There will always be fear. It's up to us to stand tall, even when the fear demands we bow to it. I reeeeeally enjoyed this! It was a tiny bit slow at times and I didn't really care for Thomas (he was kinda selfish and whiny) but I l...

    Safety is an illusion, Thomas Fawkes * * * 3 / 5 I loved the premise of Fawkes: historical British fiction with a fantasy element. Thomas Fawkes is the (invented?) son of Guy Fawkes but added into this classic story of gunpowder and treason and plot is a really innovative magic ...

    Last Friday I couldn't sleep. So I curled up on the couch for an hour with Minky blanket and Fawkes--and the next morning, after some sleep, I curled up and binge-read the rest of it. :) There's always a little nervous feeling when you get a new book from an author you like. Will y...

    I've put off reviewing this book for quite awhile, for a few reasons, but mainly: I've met Nadine and heard her speak, and enjoyed her past work. I was very excited for this one, or I wouldn't have requested a egalley. And it's not that I didn't enjoy this book, because I did. But i...
