Book Review: A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

A Heart So Fierce and Broken, Paperback / softback Book
Pre- Order now from Hive and collect from your local independent bookshop

This is the sequel to “A Curse So Dark and Lonely” where we met Harper, transported from D. C. to the parallel universe of Emberfall to break a curse that Prince Rhen is under. We also met Grey, Rhen’s guard commander. “A Curse so Dark and Lonely” was Rhen and Harper’s story and this new sequel follows Grey and his struggles with himself as discovers his true identity. He travels to Syhl Shallow and encounters the enemy queen and her daughters. Lia Mara, the older daughter is being passed over in favour of her younger sister in the line of succession, but Lia Mara is the diplomat. Grey is forced into a situation where he must decide finds his allegiances are, for or against Rhen. Can two countries at war find peace?

A wonderful sequel, Emberfall and Syhl Shallow is a believable world, that captures and draws you in. The characters are well written and although this isn’t the genre that I usually read I thoroughly enjoyed this modern fairy tale.

I was given this book by the publisher for a frank and honest review.

Book Review: Dead Popular by Sue Wallman

Dead Popular, Paperback / softback Book
Click on image and order now from Hive Stores and collect from your local independent bookshop

Set in an elite boarding school by the sea, we meet Kate, her friends, and other pupils at Manor Norton School. Right from the beginning you get this feeling of entitlement, money and beauty, the art of being practically perfect. One of Kate’s friends, Sasha was expelled at the end of the last term and we aren’t told why. An artwork collage by one of the pupil’s, Veronica, is on display in the common room called “The Things We Keep Hidden” is suddenly embellished with extras. A prescription, the address of a hospital. All these little things build the tension. Kate is planning her secret party at a very expensive beach house and by then we know something is going to happen. But what and to whom? There is a great twist at the end.

I loved this book. I read a lot of thrillers and the building up of the characters and the setting made it unputdownable. (Is that a word? It should be). I grew up with the Chalet School books by Elinor Brent-Dyer set in a boarding school in the Austria / Switzerland and Dead Popular reminded me of some of their adventures.

I had heard a lot about this book, but couldn’t afford to buy it so reserved it from my local library instead.
