    BOOK REVIEW : ETERNAL DARKNESS (ETERNAL DARKNESS #1) BY J.F.JOHNS

    Eternal Darkness is the first book in the Eternal Darkness series. This book is a dystopian science-fiction. I have already read After Darkness which is the fourth book in this series. It takes place 160 years after the third book ended. I was intrigued by the history of the cyborg and human war and the character's past. So I requested the author for review copies and got them approved. Finally, I was able to get back into the fascinating world of humans, cyborgs, and X-prototypes. I enjoyed After darkness so much and was so excited to read the book that kicked-off the journey for humans and cyborgs. We get introduced…

    BOOK REVIEW : A PROMISE OF RETURN (THE OUTLANDS PENTALOGY #3) BY REBECCA CRUNDEN

    A Promise Of Return by Rebecca Crunden is the third book in The Outland's Pentalogy Series. This series is a fantasy/science-fiction set in a dystopian world. I am so thankful to Rebecca for her patience because this book has been sitting on my shelf for some time now. I planned to read this book as soon as I finished A History Of Madness. Unfortunately, I had a lot of books that I had committed before this book and so I scheduled it for August. I have been dying to get back to reading this book and I am so happy to say I finally finished it. Boy oh boy, what…

    BOOK REVIEW : COURT OF LIONS (MIRAGE #2) BY SOMAIYA DAUD

    I read Mirage last month and loved the Moroccan-inspired story set in a star system with the brutal Vathek Empire. I had high hopes for this book as Mirage was a splendid debut with a beautiful world, culture, and traditions. We followed Amani, a young girl who gets kidnapped and brought to play a body double for the Vathek Princess Maram. The Kingdom is expanded further, and we get to see more of the amazing world. The effect of colonization and how the people of the Kingdom are faring after the brutal Vathek conquering is realistically portrayed. The political angle, rebellion is kind of the central theme of this book.…

    BOOK REVIEW : CHALLENGER DEEP BY NEAL SHUSTERMAN

    Neal Shusterman's Challenger Deep is my first experience with the author, and what an experience it was. I had a hard time reading this book, and now even more of a hard time rating it. I don't know if I'll be able to articulate all my thoughts into this review. This was a difficult read for me in every sense of the word. I had to put it down several times and take breaks in between as well. This book requires patience, strength, and determination to push through. The story is about a young teenage boy Caden who struggles with mental illness. We follow his journey and his decline of…

    BOOK REVIEW : MIRAGE (MIRAGE #1) BY SOMAIYA DAUD

    Somaiya Daud's Mirage is the first book in the series by the same name. I got the ARC to the second book from Netgalley and wanted to read this immediately so that I can get to the ARC in August. This is a Moroccan inspired fantasy with elements of African mythology weaved into the story wonderfully creating a fantastical world worth losing oneself in. Mirage is set in a world where an oppressive regime has taken hold of the moon Andala. Amani, a poor farmer's daughter gets kidnapped and brought to a new place to stand-in for the King's daughter. King's daughter faces dangers from the people of Andala who…
