#BookReview – A STOLEN HEART by @KayelleAllen #SF

Coinciding with release day for A STOLEN HEART, you can see what I thought of the book in my review below.

Unlike the original series, which I can still happily rewatch even now, years later, having seen them countless times, this newer batch just don’t grip me.

How important is solid #Worldbuilding in a #fantasy novel?

I ask this question because I’m currently reading an Urban Fantasy novel that is causing me to scratch my head rather too often. I think the answer to the glitches in this specific novel is probably that it lacked beta readers to pull the author up over the many illogical facets of this world. If it […]
