    Of Fire and Stars was one of my favorite books of 2017, so naturally I was ELATED to find out there was a prequel story. While I did enjoy Inkmistress, it just didn't have the excitement I felt while reading the first installment of this series. That being said, I am still very happy I...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Okay, real quick, I?m going to do a little PSA, since I think a lot of you might need it: Bisexuals who are with boys are still bisexual. Bisexuals who are with girls are still bisexual. Bisexuals who ...

    YA characters: i have this amazing power to dictate the future using my blood but i must keep it secret and Never Use or Abuse it me as a character: *using Umbridge's Blood Quill* tomorrow eddie redmayne will come to my house and profess his undying love for me and we will get marri...

    Despite what a certain review implies, there is nothing wrong with a bisexual female having a relationship with a man. This does not "undermine" her sexuality or make previous relationships any less valid. ... there IS something wrong with info-dumps though. Lots and lots of boring ...

    In Inkmistress we follow Asra, a demigod with the power to change the past and the future at a severe price. In this world people can manifest into animals by bonding with one with the blessing of one of the 6 Gods. After trying to help her lover findher manifest things go horribly w...

    I did really enjoy this story. Ultimately, "Inkmistress" ends up giving some world building insight into "Of Fire and Stars" though that isn't blatant until the final chapter. It left me with an, "Ohhh, that's why". As this is a 0.5 story, it can be read as a standalone, before or afte...

    ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. UPDATE: changing my rating to 5 stars because I just can't stop thining about this book. It really is that good. Inkmistress was a surprise and a delight. I?d seen such luke warm reviews of Coulhurt?s work that...

    ? Video Review ? "Because love was a heart filled with kindness, eyes a deep brown that warmed me from the inside out, and a hand I could count on to hold through the next adventure." Inkmistress is an unbelievably good book. It has so many great elements to it and does e...

    Honestly, Audrey saying the honest title of this book would be "bisexuality and bloodshed" got my interest. When she spent five good minutes explaining us what was happening in the book and then went 'that isn't spoiler by the way, that all happens in the first fifty pages', this book ...

    Amazingly diverse and well worth your time. Prominent characters of color as well as queer characters, a great story that feels fresh and rewarding. ...

    What a great book! I enjoyed it even more than the first book set in this fantasy universe. The world building, while not knock-your-socks-off, is very good, the writing is quite lovely, and the story and characters captivated me from the beginning. I guessed things a few times, but ot...

    Of Fire and Stars was one of my favorite books of 2017, so naturally I was ELATED to find out there was a prequel story. While I did enjoy Inkmistress, it just didn't have the excitement I felt while reading the first installment of this series. That being said, I am still very happy I...

    I did really enjoy this story. Ultimately, "Inkmistress" ends up giving some world building insight into "Of Fire and Stars" though that isn't blatant until the final chapter. It left me with an, "Ohhh, that's why". As this is a 0.5 story, it can be read as a standalone, before or afte...

    What a great book! I enjoyed it even more than the first book set in this fantasy universe. The world building, while not knock-your-socks-off, is very good, the writing is quite lovely, and the story and characters captivated me from the beginning. I guessed things a few times, but ot...

    (4.5 stars) Blood! Tears! Bisexuality! No, seriously, so much blood. This was definitely the logical follow up to Of Fire and Stars. Like the original book, this book has enough dull spots that I'll understand when people don't love it as much, but in the end it made me feel so many...

    ***I was provided with an eARC by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*** First of all...I LOVE that this is in the same world that "Of Fire and Stars" is. I was hoping for a novella, and this was so much more. It's a great story with it's own emotions and awesome characters. ...

    Pacing is a very important aspect of a book to me. It determines how well my attention is kept and how much I enjoy reading about the characters. Bad pacing leads to a boring reading experience. Inkmistress had excellent pacing. Events did not move too fast, nor did they skip ahead. Ev...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy. Honestly, I was sold on INKMISTRESS before I read it. Everything about the description of the book led me to believe I was going to love it, and it certainly did not disappoint. INKMISTRESS is an amazing tale of love and betrayal, of magi...

    See my full review and much more on my blog KissinBlueKaren Let?s cut to the chase, this book explores something I have NEVER seen in YA. I am talking about a character that is attracted to both female and males. Bisexuality is nowhere in YA and I am so happy with the way the au...
