This novel was sent to me by Bloomsbury Publishing Australia two months prior to it’s UK release on February 8th 2018, in exchange for an honest review. I am very grateful to have been chosen to review this book.
I honestly do not know what to say in this review, other than I loved this book so so much though it wasn’t perfect, it was engaging, captivating, and oddly haunting.
Every Christmas, Wren is chased through the woods near her isolated village by her family’s enemies—the Judges—and there’s nothing that she can do to stop it. Once her people, the Augurs, controlled a powerful magic. But now that power lies with the Judges, who are set on destroying her kind for good.
In a desperate bid to save her family, Wren takes a dangerous undercover assignment—as an intern to an influential Judge named Cassa Harkness. Cassa has spent her life researching a transformative spell, which could bring the war between the factions to its absolute end. Caught in a web of deceit, Wren must decide whether or not to gamble on the spell and seal the Augurs’ fate.

Hey Ho Bookaholics!
I only paid $10 for books this month and I could never be prouder of myself in the shopping department and for this achievement I would like to thank Bloomsbury for inviting me to the Bloomsbury Bloggers event and gifting me with all of these amazing looking books! I would also like to thank Andrew’s Bookshop for actually stocking and discouting a hardback graphic novel! Three things that are very very hard to come by in Australian bookstores – hardbacks, cheap books, graphic novels – were found and August ended on an amazing note.

I was sent a copy of The Edge Of Everything by Jeff Giles from Bloomsbury in December 2016, in exchange for an honest review prior to the release date.
Hey Ho Bookaholics!
Wow okay so I’m back from a crazy long break at not posting due to I work and planning/ packing for my holiday (which I am currently enjoying), but because it is Review Monday and I have missed two Review Monday’s in a row (shame on me) I am bringing to you a very special review.
This is a book that has absolutely captured – and kept a part of – my heart when I read it in the closing weeks of 2016. If you saw my Summer TBR post, you will know that I included it in my December TBR which I had no hope in finishing, though this was one of two novels I’d actually read, out of the total seven books I planned to read in the month.
It’s been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who’s still reeling from her father’s shockingly sudden death in a caving accident and her neighbors’ mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying sub-zero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in a cabin in the woods–only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.
X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe’s evil attacker and others like him. Forbidden to reveal himself to anyone other than his victims, X casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe. As X and Zoe learn more about their different worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for both of them.
