Title: Defiance
Series: The Reaper Series Book 1
Author: R.S. Broadhead

Book Description:

I. Am. Death.

His only job? To watch.

Watch the family Fate branded for death be butchered by a random drunk.

Cadeus Reaper was created by Grim for reaping souls. So why can’t he do the one thing he was made for?

Cadeus always knew he was different from other Reapers. Still – he struggled to fit in, to follow orders, and earn his way to the top spot of Demoral as he was intended for, that is until he reaps a soul for the first time.

He defied Death’s law by attempting to stop a human from being executed.

He failed.

Or so he thought.

His crime would not go unpunished or unnoticed.

Trapped. In a cell. For over twenty years as mental and physical abuse haunted him--only to discover that the girl he tried to save is very much alive--but will soon be dead.

With no other choice, Cadeus has to do the impossible. Escape an inescapable prison. With the help of a newfound friend, he manages to reach freedom, only to find the world he once knew is gone. Grim has disappeared, leaving utter chaos. Fate, along with other Reapers, have taken over his home, the realm of Nekroun Earth.

Along with Demons and Angels, Fate has demanded the girl that Cadeus saved be found. Can Cadeus get to her first? Or will she end up in the hands of a fate she’s been running from?



I tried to block the portal, but was hit in the jaw with the wood from another sickle. A blade whizzed past me so fast it practically hummed through the air. I heard a thud, and Izzy screamed before it closed. The pain in my jaw was nothing compared to the heavy feeling my heart felt at that moment. Sophia lay in front of me, gasping for breath. Her chest moved up and down in a rapid motion.

I ran a hand over her hair, pushing it away from her face. “I’m so sorry.” I had never meant the words more. It was my fault she was dying. Tears spilled out of my eyes.

“Just get away from me,” she screamed. Her sobs turned into choked gasps. “I don’t want to die,” she whispered before she quit breathing. “Get him up. You’ve got to be the stupidest sack of shit Grim’s ever made,” Paradan, Grim’s first sergeant, said. His voice was so harsh. The harshest I had ever heard it, but I didn’t care.

Two Demorals snatched me from the ground. My jaw pounded. I winced as I tried to move it. Their grip was solid around my arms. They thought I would fight them, but there was no fight left in me. I did what I thought was right. Those little girls’ blood would forever stain me and haunt my dreams. I deserved whatever punishment Grim had in store for me.
Whatever it may be.

Julia Vanishes by Catherine Egan: A book review by Poppy Fairy

Title: Julia Vanishes
Author: Catherine Egan
Series: Witch's Child
ISBN: 9780553524840
Published on: June 7th 2016
Published by: Knopf Books for Young Readers


Julia has the unusual ability to be…unseen. Not invisible, exactly. Just beyond most people’s senses.

It’s a dangerous trait in a city that has banned all forms of magic and drowns witches in public Cleansings. But it’s a useful trait for a thief and a spy. And Julia has learned—crime pays.

Her latest job is paying very well indeed. Julia is posing as a housemaid in the grand house of Mrs. Och, where an odd assortment of characters live and work: A disgraced professor who keeps forbidden books and sends her to fetch parcels containing bullets, spiders, and poison. An aristocratic houseguest who is locked in the basement each night. And a mysterious young woman with an infant son who is clearly hiding—though from what or whom?

Worse, Julia has a creeping suspicion that there’s a connection between these people and the killer leaving a trail of bodies across the frozen city.

The more she learns, the more she wants to be done with this unnatural job. To go back to the safety of her friends and fellow thieves. But Julia is entangled in a struggle between forces more powerful than she’d ever imagined. Escape will come at a terrible price.

And even a girl who can vanish can’t walk away from her own worst deeds.

Paper Towns by John Green: A book review by Poppy Fairy

Title: Paper Towns
Author: John Green
Release date: September 22nd 2009
Released by: Speak
ISBN: 9780142414934
Rating: 4.5/5 fairy wings


Who is the real Margo?

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew...


Paper Towns is quite possibly my most favourite out of the four JG books I’ve read (this, Looking for Alaska, Abundance of Katherines, and Will Grayson, Will Grayson). What I ultimately loved about Paper Towns, however, is that this isn’t your typical YA novel that I’ve always thought it was. This actually closely resembles Looking for Alaska in ways that the female protagonist is a huge influence to the main protagonist. That said, Paper Towns isn’t a love story, but a story about Quentin Jacobsen’s journey to self-discovery.

Black Beast by Nenia Campell: A book review by Poppy Fairy

Title: Black Beast
Author: Nenia Campbell
Series: Shadow Thane #1
Release date: April 2nd 2014


She walks the line between the hunter and the hunted.

Vampires want her blood.

Witches consider her less-than-human.

Slayers simply want her dead.

As if being in high school wasn't hard enough, Catherine Pierce has to deal with a whole other set of problems that arise from being a shifter that hasn't settled. Because after puberty, shifters are supposed to stop changing--and Catherine, well, hasn't.

Even among her own kind, Catherine is regarded as a freak.

To make matters worse, she'd caught the attention of the witches' Council because they think she's been dabbling in dark magic because of a stupid old book that popped up at her work. And she's been having nightmares about a terrifying man who calls himself the Shadow Thane and plans to end the world in a burst of darkness and dragon fire.

Just in case that wasn't enough, a branch of Slayers are infiltrating Catherine's town, under the guise of a community youth group called Sterling Rep.

Times are changing and that means, for Catherine, it's time to Change.
