Review: Red in Tooth and Claw by Lish McBride

There was so much to love about this book. Gods. And I loved it all. It was such a perfect read. It brought me much joy. Giving it five stars, as I could not find anything to dislike about it. Nothing big, at least. It was a book that I enjoyed from beginning to end. The writing was stunning too, which I'm so happy about as well.

Finding the words for this book will not be easy. I shall describe parts of the story, but not much of it. And I'm going to write down some of my favorite parts. Just truly loved this one. The main girl was everything. The small romance was perfection. The growing friendships were so good. I honestly loved everything about this.

This book is a western story, set in the past, it seemed. I so very much liked this setting, as I truly find it fascinating to read about. And I very much did so this time too. This world was all kinds of exciting to get to know. I know, kind of dull, but I loved how they lived back then. And I loved reading about it. This is a book that tells the story of seventeen-year-old Faolan Kelly. She has been living like a boy since she was small, growing up alone with her Pops, her grandfather. But he just died. And she is too young to take over their home, eight months until her birthday. Everyone in this town thinks she is a boy. Things would be worse if they knew she was not. Still. She's not old enough. The mayor has her sent away to a different town, as he tries to take her land.

There is so much that I loved about Faolan Kelly. She was all kinds of smart. But a little bit wild and crazy and rash and sweet and kind and soft and also a bit broken. She was every kind of complicated. And I so loved that about her. I loved how fiercely she loved her grandfather. Even how much she loved her goat. I loved how she just wanted to be able to go back home to her house. And how her wants changed during this book. How she grew to care for more people around her, getting close to many. I just adored this girl.

We get to know a lot about this settlement she ends up at. It's a very small place, walled in on every side. It looks like things have tried to get past the walls. And inside is not much better. It looks okay. Better than she was expecting, which was a good thing. She ends up with a good place to sleep, getting good food at every meal. But things are not that easy at this place. It is run by a religious guy, called HisBen. And ugh. I truly hated him. I'm not a religious person at all. And he very much was. And not at all a kind one. Hmph.

Though at first it does seem like Faolan has ended up at a good place. Some of the people are nice. Like Miss Moon, the woman in charge of all the children who are there. I really liked getting to know her a little. She tried her best. I also really loved the gunslinger, Will. I loved his small romance with Miss Moon. Was adorable. He was also just really a kind person. I loved reading about how he and Faolan became such great friends. I felt like they both needed each other. I really loved how fun they were around each other.

Then there was Jesse and Dai Lo. Two teenagers who were also stuck at this settlement. Clearly in love. Which was adorable, to be honest. I loved how they loved each other. I loved how Jesse was drawing. I loved how Dai Lo wanted to be a healer. And I very much loved reading about how they became friends with Faolan. I loved how close they became, and how they ended up being so important to her. How they were helping her with the small things. It was the absolute cutest and I loved it so much. Best friendships.

But yeah. This place was not good at all. While she is out hunting with Jesse, they end up going off trail for a moment. He climbs a tree. Ends up falling down, hurting his ankle, while Faolan ends up sprayed by a skunk. Which was honestly hilarious, ha. I loved that scene. I loved their bickering. They end up being saved by the Rover people. I loved reading about them and how they lived. It was interesting and I loved it. This is where she meets Tallis. And gods. I loved how she fell for him right away, ha. It was the cutest.

There were so many amazing scenes with Faolan and Tallis. Their first meeting was adorable and fun. I loved how he called her little fox. I loved how it bothered her. I fully adored how he had to help her get rid of the smell from the skunk. He had to help her bathe. Which was not easy for her, considering she was pretending to be a boy. But she let him help her. I loved that scene so much. They were truly so adorable together. I loved how he helped her. And how he did not react to know she was a girl. Tallis was the best.

But then she and Jesse got back to the settlement a day later than they were supposed to. There were to be punishments for this. And she ended up spending three nights in the box. And this was fully horrible to read about, and yet I loved it too, for how real it was. While in there, she hears a creature outside the box. She hears something getting eaten. And it was awful. Yet so good too. Faolan is a little ruined when she comes out of the box. But Jesse and Dai Lo are able to help her a little. And I very much loved that. Sigh.

There was so much going on in this place. It was like it was being controlled by HisBen. They all had their chore to get done daily. And you were not allowed to do anything else or go anywhere else. It was so very strict. I hated it. But loved reading about it. I liked how Faolan learned more about this place, and how she wanted to leave, but did not want to leave her friends. I liked learning more about the creature outside the walls, most likely killing people, as several seemed to be missing. It was truly such an interesting mystery.

But for the most part, I loved reading about Faolan and Tallis together. Sigh. They truly had the very best scenes, eee. And the cutest growing romance. Sigh. I loved it all to pieces. I truly loved the scene where she was running in the forest at night, and he found her. I loved all the scenes where he had to help her heal. I loved their small bickering. It was so cute. They did fall pretty fast. But it felt real. I honestly loved their romance. It was a bright spot, among the murder and blood. Tallis was truly the sweetest boy. Sigh.

Okay. I may have already written way too much about this book. Oops. But yes. The plot. It is about the murdering going on. The missing people. The weird screams she hears at night. How crazy this HisBen guy was. What he was up to. There is a creature in a cave. Those scenes were all kinds of epic. Loved it so much. And that creature. Sigh. I loved it most. I'm not sharing more about the plot, just that it was all kinds of exciting and I loved how it all ended. The story of this book was so good. I enjoyed it very much.

Red in Tooth and Claw was such an exciting and thrilling book. I loved every moment of it. Such a strong main girl. Such amazing friendships formed. And a most awesome dangerous creature. It was just such a great story. I'm so thankful to the publisher for approving my request to read this early via Edelweiss. Now I just need to hunt down the print ARC to add to my collection. I'm going to need every copy of this book. I loved it the most. You are all going to love it too, when it comes out in October. It is a book you can't miss.

THE HEART OF THE WORLD (The Isles of the Gods #2)
BY AMIE KAUFMAN

Goodreads Description:

Magic and sacrifice will collide as lovers and gods, enemies and allies vie for the fate of the world in this heart-pounding sequel to THE ISLES OF THE GODS, which Stephanie Garber called "deliciously diabolical and full of heart."

When Selly and Leander began their treacherous voyage to the Isles of the Gods, the captain’s daughter and the playboy prince were strangers. But amid talk of war and a deadly attack on their ship, the unthinkable happened.

They fell in love.

Leander’s ritual at the island temple was meant to prevent a war between the gods. Instead, it nearly cost him his life, and drew the goddess Barrica back from exile. Now, as her Messenger, Leander is imbued with her deadly magic, and only Selly’s presence can stop it from consuming him.

But Barrica wasn’t the only immortal roused from sleep. The God of Risk, Macean, was awakened by an enemy all thought dead, and across the sea he’s calling for war.

The fight to save their world will take Selly and Leander from the gilded ballroom of the royal palace to the hallowed halls of an ancient library. Battle lines will be drawn, and bonds will break.

With the wrath of gods and the machinations of power-hungry rulers straining their loyalties, can their love withstand the trials that await them?

Format: 432 pages, Hardcover
Expected Publication: July 4, 2024 by Rock the Boat
Pre-Order: Blackwells and Amazon US and Amazon UK

Review: Wish Monster by J. A. White

This story was just as exciting and special as I knew it would be. I have been a fan of J. A. White and his books for so many years now. He writes such amazing middle grade stories. This newest one looked all kinds of creepy and fantastic. I was lucky enough to get an eARC from Edelweiss. I could not wait longer to read it.

I am giving this gorgeous book four stars. As I loved it, but also had a few small things that I didn't fully love. But the writing was fantastic. And all of the characters were so adorable. Sigh. Truly enjoyed reading this story. Although I'm also a bit sad about the end. It was good, but bittersweet. A little heartbreaking, honestly.

I'm not going to write such a long review for this book. As it was a quick and easy book to read. I think one of the reasons for why I did not fully love it was because it was not all fantasy. It's set in our world. Which I'm not the biggest fan of, haha. But it did have a magical wish monster, which I did love. It had great characters which I also loved. So I didn't mind the world too much. But yes, I would have loved it even more, I think, if the world it was set in was fantasy too. But despite this, I still really enjoyed this book. It was exciting and a little bit creepy too. Full of all the horrible consequences that can come from making a wish. How it can change everything, both small and big. It was so rude. And I very much loved it. Such an interesting plot. And so much did change, from such small wishes. I liked reading about all the details.

This book is told from two point of views. Hudson and Violet. I adored Hudson from the very first moment. And I really liked Violet too. But she did some things that I did not approve of, and so I got a bit angry with her. But she made up for it, so I'm back to loving her too, haha. Hudson is a quiet boy at school, where no one really notices him. Except for his best friend, Quinn. I liked their friendship a lot. Hudson only has his mother. And I liked how she cared for him and wanted him to stay safe. I really liked how close they were.

I liked how Hudson and Violet slowly became friends. They both needed each other, I think. I loved it so. Violet was also a pretty lonely girl, I think. She had two best friends, but they slowly ghosted her after her beloved dog, Midnight, died. This broke Violet. Because her dog was everything to her. She has an older sister, Emma. But they aren't really friends. Because their parents only seem to notice Emma, the perfect child. And Violet keeps being forgotten by them. Which I really truly hated. The very worst parents. Hmph.

Violet just wants her dog back. As she is walking the woods, she hears a voice whispering the word wish. Which leads her to a cave that used to be caved in, but is now open. She enters. And there she meets a magical creature, more a monster, who can make her wish come true. I liked how she had three options, and could choose just one. She wanted her dog back. And back it came. I loved that for her. But now no one remembers that he died at all. Which was creepy. Except for Hudson. He remembers Midnight dying.

Which is where their sort of friendship begins. Violet is worried her wish will be taken, because Hudson knows when no one else does. So she's keeping Hudson close. He is simply happy to have a new friend. Sigh. How rude. But good too, as I really liked them together. This book is about the wish monster. How it needs more people to make wishes. Nothing bad happened when Violet got her dog back. But she had to bring someone else to make a wish. And that wish was a much bigger one, and it changed many things.

Which makes Hudson realize that the wish monster is nothing kind. Violet does not agree. I really loved everything that happened after this. New wishes were made. Hudson trying to figure out how to stop it all, how to reverse a wish. While also learning some secrets. I had sort of guessed it, but did not have all the details right. But oh, that twist was evil and so sad. Yet I loved it, ha. Wish Monster was such an exciting and thrilling story. I'm so glad I was able to read this book early. You all need to read this too, in October.

TEAM CHU AND THE WILD GHOST CHASE
(Team Chu #3) BY JULIE C. DAO

Goodreads Description:

In this Team Chu adventure, Vietnamese-American siblings Clip and Sadie Chu—and friends—must unearth the mystery behind a haunted Halloween carnival!

When Iggy Morales's stylish cat, Tuba, becomes famous on social media, he scores an invite to a star-studded pet fashion show at Spooky World. The family-friendly, Halloween-themed indoor carnival is the place to be on the last weekend in October, so of course Iggy brings all of his friends, including Clip and Sadie.

The kids expect to ride thrilling rollercoasters, play games in the midway, and eat fried dough and candy apples, but they encounter a different kind of excitement instead: a ghost called the Weeping Lady, who has haunted Spooky World for decades, appears and asks for their help!

The Weeping Lady sends Iggy and his friends on a mysterious, action-packed scavenger hunt all over the sprawling theme park, giving them cryptic clues and communicating with Iggy’s seemingly clairvoyant cat, Tuba.

If the kids can piece the story together and complete this wild ghost chase, they might just uncover the truth behind what really happened to Spooky World’s most infamous spirit!

Format: 320 pages, Hardcover

THE CRIMSON MOTH BY KRISTEN CICCARELLI

Goodreads Description:

Enemies-to-lovers doesn't get more high stakes than a witch and a witch hunter falling in love in bestselling author Kristen Ciccarelli's latest romantic fantasy.

On the night Rune’s life changed forever, blood ran in the streets. Now, in the aftermath of a devastating revolution, witches have been diminished from powerful rulers to outcasts ruthlessly hunted due to their waning magic, and Rune must hide what she is.

Spending her days pretending to be nothing more than a vapid young socialite, Rune spends her nights as the Crimson Moth, a witch vigilante who rescues her kind from being purged. When a rescue goes wrong, she decides to throw the witch hunters off her scent and gain the intel she desperately needs by courting the handsome Gideon Sharpe – a notorious and unforgiving witch hunter loyal to the revolution – who she can't help but find herself falling for.

Gideon loathes the decadence and superficiality Rune represents, but when he learns the Crimson Moth has been using Rune’s merchant ships to smuggle renegade witches out of the republic, he inserts himself into her social circles by pretending to court her right back. He soon realizes that beneath her beauty and shallow fa├žade, is someone fiercely intelligent and tender who feels like his perfect match. Except, what if she’s the very villain he’s been hunting?

Kristen Ciccarelli’s The Crimson Moth
is the thrilling start to a romantic fantasy duology where the only thing more treacherous than being a witch…is falling in love.

Format: 400 pages, Hardcover
Expected Publication: February 29, 2024 by Magpie

Review: Not Quite a Ghost by Anne Ursu

This was a book I simply had to get. Since it sounded all kinds of sad and lovely. And so I knew this would be a middle grade book for me. And it was. I enjoyed it a whole bunch. Ended up being a four star, as I did not fully love it all, but it was such a great book and I liked it very much. The writing was stunning, which I loved.

It is told from the point of view of eleven-year-old Violet. We get to know her quite a bit. And I liked her so much. Her family was pretty great too, although her older sister was rude after she got too old for Violet, I guess. She got a bit better. Her little brother, age three, was adorable. But seemed way older than that to me.

I also liked her parents a lot. Her mother was fully great, with her always believing in Violet and her issues. Her stepdad was pretty kind and sweet too. So yeah. She had a great family and I really liked that. In this story they are moving to a new house. Violet is not that excited about it. Especially not when she ends up alone in the attic bedroom, which looks all kinds of horrible. But she is dealing with it, which I liked. It is also difficult for her, as she just started middle school. She is also a little worried about losing her two best friends, since everything is so different. I do not usually like reading modern books, and this one was set very much in our world and time. There were many mentions of recent movies and such. It takes place now in our time, after corona. Okay, it did annoy me a little, but I did not mind the setting that much.

Because most of this book is just about Violet. And it was such a fast and quick read too. We get to know her pretty well. We get to know her two friends a bit too. And I honestly did not like them. Okay, I did like them at first. But they changed. Especially Paige. And it was just so rude and so sad at times. They were not at all true friends. Sigh. But I so liked how it seemed like she was going to end up being friends with Quinn. She was awesome. And I loved how she managed to make another friend too, Will. He was great.

But most of this story was about the illness that Violet gets. At first she is simply regular sick for around a week. But then it does not go away. And she is so tired and has no energy at all. And oh, how I loved this. Because it really felt like me at times. As I am all kinds of sick as well, and my energy level is mostly bad. And so I loved reading about Violet dealing with this too. Though, of course, it was pretty sad too, as she does not know what is wrong with her. And the doctors are no help to her. Which was just so rude. Hmph.

There is a lot going on in this book, despite how short it was. I'm not going to say much more. But there was an adorable stray cat moving in. I loved it. There is a not quite a ghost living in the wallpaper in her attic. Which was a little weird, yet pretty great too. And I liked reading about it. And how Violet was trying to get rid of this person. I loved how the book ended with Violet not being cured, that she is still ill. It was so sad, yet so real too. Especially with how it is close to how I feel most of the time too. Was written well.

Not Quite a Ghost was a stunning story. Not fully perfect, but all kinds of good even so. The writing was great. I adored getting to know Violet and her family. I loved how this book focused on her illness. How difficult it was. But also how her family did their best to help her with it. How she had bad days but also good days. I liked her new friendships. I hated her old ones that went bad. Hmph. I loved reading about the cat she ended up getting. It was fully adorable. I'm glad I read this book. And you should read it too.

ICON AND INFERNO (Stars and Smoke #2) BY MARIE LU

Goodreads Description:

Perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and Ally Carter, the dazzling sequel to #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu's Stars and Smoke, is “a brilliant, breathtaking ride" - Tahereh Mafi, #1 internationally bestselling author.

New sparks. Old flames. And a mission that's playing with fire.

A year has passed since superstar Winter Young last saw secret agent Sydney Cossette. After barely surviving their first assignment together in London -- and their intense chemistry – the two haven’t spoken at all. Though they’re never far from the other’s thoughts, or fantasies.

So when Syndey shows up at Winter’s studio one day with a new mission from Panacea, he has no choice but to accept. With the clock ticking, the duo prepares to head to Singapore to rescue an operative in danger -- only to learn he’s none other than Sydney's ex, a rogue agent known as the Arsonist.

Of course, nothing is ever simple when it comes to Winter and Sydney. Especially not with the glamorous Gavi Ginsburg, a globe-trotting socialite and Winter’s one-time girlfriend, in the mix. Is she back for Winter’s heart – or does she have her eye on another prize?

The smoldering sequel to
New York Times bestselling Stars and Smoke follows Winter and Sydney on yet another treacherous mission that grows more sinister with each twist and turn. To make it out alive, they'll have to figure out how to be partners again -- and if they can resist the burn of something more.
