Review: The Pearl Savage (Savage, #1) by Tamara Rose Blodgett

The abundance of dome living within Dystopian novels is making me nervous. It really seems like a possibility. In The Pearl Savage something happens in 1890 that makes the Earth rather inhabitable. The young, healthy people were selected to live within the spheres, while the old and sick were left outside. 140 years later, time inside the spheres is frozen. The people still speak like they’re in 1890, retained the mannerisms, as well as the fashion, but outside it’s much different, much more savage. Clara, a princess in the sphere, dreams of exploring her wild surrounds, but of course that’s not allowed.I immediately felt terrible for Clara! She’s such a nice, considerate, and helpful person. She cares about the people of her Kingdom and even works among them to do […]

All I wanted to do that night was make a play for Carter Davis. His heartless rejection was mortifying, but people got the wrong idea when they saw me leaving his bedroom, crying. That’s how rumors of rape started.Now girls at school are pouring out their sympathy to me. Guys too. But not everyone’s on my side. The school has become a war zone and the threats are getting scary. What began as poetic justice has morphed into something bigger-forcing […]

Review: The Gathering Storm (Katerina, #1) by Robin Bridges

The living dead in Imperial Russia…sounds awesome, right? Right! Royal balls, sophistication and glamor, and mythical creatures. “We live in the strangest of times. Russia was steeped in mysticism and the occult, and science was struggling against superstition to pull the country into the future.” And Katerina is caught in the middle. She dreams of going to medical school, but she also has a strange “gift” that allows her to raise the dead. She’s also been warned to protect her family from the “blood-drinkers.”But is that warning legitimate, since it came from a possibly senile princess? What is Katerina suppose to do since the vampire she’s suppose to kill is the same prince who wants to marry her? Katerina is finding it hard to know what is true and who […]
