This is not the fairytale you remember.
But it’s one you won’t forget.
Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. The police have closed her case. The only person Scarlet can turn to is Wolf, a street fighter she does not trust, but they are drawn to each other.
Meanwhile, in New Beijing, Cinder will become the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive – when she breaks out of prison to stay one step ahead of vicious Queen Levana.
As Scarlet and Wolf expose one mystery, they encounter Cinder and a new one unravels. Together they must challenge the evil queen, who will stop at nothing to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner . . .


"This is war...  She's declared war on us…"
Linh Cinder discovered she was Lunar, tried to save the Emperor, got caught by the Queen Levana of Luna and arrested. 
So instead of being taken back to Luna and probably killed, Cinder breaks out of prison, taking American ex-cadet Carswell Thorne with her, and flees.  Thus making her Enemy Number One – and the most wanted person in the Commonwealth.
Meanwhile, Scarlet Benoit's Grand-mère vanishes and the police shut the case, claiming she's a crazy old woman who just wandered off.  But Scarlet knows something terrible has happened - that her grandmother has been taken by someone dangerous.
And the only person who can help her is the quiet, brooding streetfighter Wolf.
As they attempt to find Scar's grandmother, they stumble across Cinder and soon they're all wrapped up in a larger plot – to face the wicked Queen Levana and defeat her.
If they don't beat the Queen, Emperor Kai (the boy Cinder got arrested to protect) will become a prisoner – expendable.  And the Commonwealth will fall before the wrath of the vicious Lunar Queen...
I loved Cinder, when I read it so many years ago.  Somehow, I failed to read Scarlet as soon as it came out (I know, I'm insane – certifiable, in fact) and decided enough was enough: I had to know what happened next!  When I finally picked Scarlet up, I was worried for the poor book – time and my love of Cinder had built up sky-high expectations, ones I felt certain Scarlet could never live up to.  Man, I was wrong.  Scarlet... it just blew me away.  It somehow managed to be even better than Cinder – I didn't even think that was possible!  I just... I can't put into words how much I loved it – and how much I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner!
I adored the characters in the book – both the old ones and the new ones.  They're all so brilliant, so vibrant and real and amazing.  I'm a little blown away by how much I love all the characters (well, apart from Levana, Adri and the LSOP people)...
I'll start with the newest of our two heroines: Scarlet, who was a total badass – fearless and a little scary at times.  She was so protective and loyal and brave and funny.  All in all, another amazing heroine, just like the wonderful Cinder.
And speaking of Cinder – oh how I love her!  She's amazing and so very, very funny!  I love how resourceful, tough, vulnerable, clever and brilliant she is.  She's so strong, but prone to the teenage moments – c'mon, all teens have them – and she's also just so good.  I just love her – especially her new bickering with Thorne!
Wolf – oh, it is so clear to me that Meyer is capable of creating all kinds of book boyfriends I just fall for instantly.  He was intriguing, so mysterious, so broody and quiet and dangerous.  And so protective and good.  I was under his spell, intrigued by him, and by the end I was totally in love!  Him and Scar are perfect!
As for Carswell Thorne.  Is it wrong that I love him?  He is a criminal.  And a bit of a hound dog.  But he's also freaking hilarious.  And insane.  And amazing.  He was just such a doofus – such amazing comic relief in this fast-paced book.  He's freaking hilarious and I freaking love him to pieces!
Kai – oh, I love Kai!  We didn't see as much of him – no! – and had hardly any of him and Cinder together, but even when he was just in his office, dealing with royal advisors and crazy Lunars, he was brilliant.  He is such a good Emperor and I just love him.
Oh!  And how I loved seeing Iko again!  I love that little robot!  
Wow, that was a lot of character-related-rambling!  I just love them all so so much!
I loved the story in Cinder – it was engaging, addictive, fast-paced, exciting and amazing.  But Scarlet just took all of that and doubled it.  Thanks to the dual (sometimes triple) storyline that perfectly wove together, I was always on my toes, always utterly hooked, always excited and nervous and laughing and chewing at my fingernails (but not really, cause that's unhygienic).  And Meyer's awesome writing just enhanced all of this brilliant suspense, action and humour.  I loved how we got so many perspectives – Cinder, Scarlet, Thorne, Kai, even Levana.  We got to know so many characters, see so many interlinked stories, and it was just amazing.  Meyer is a master of words and story lines, no doubt about it!
I seriously love fairy tales.  I've read a lot of fairy tale retellings.  But the Lunar Chronicles world has to be one of my very favourites.  The 'princesses' are badasses, the carriages are high-tech space ships and the princes have to deal with homicidal alien queens – oh, and the singing-animal-sidekicks are witty little robots.  I mean, that's a million of my favourite things put together into one amazing, amazing series.  I'm literally one of the happiest bloggers in the universe when I pick up a Lunar Chronicles book – and trust me when I tell you I won't be daft enough not to read Cress just as soon as I've finished this review!
So yes, if you haven't gathered, I adored Scarlet.  I read it in just one sitting, staying up late to gobble it all up.  Meyer is truly a goddess and I utterly worship her.  Her books are so amazing, so addictive and brilliant, and I could just read about this world forever and ever.  Since that is probably impossible, I'm just going to read Cress.  I'm utterly hooked, completely under an enchantment, and I just can't stop with the Lunar kick right now!  
As far as addictions go, the Lunar Chronicles is one of the best – by far!  In fact, it is indeed one you will never, ever forget, or get over – or even want to get over.  I know I don't!  Hence the insane rambling and how I'm already picking Cress up...

Heap House by Edward Carey

Series: The Iremonger Trilogy, Book One
Publisher: Hot Key
Format: Paperback
Published: 7th August 2014
Number of Pages: 400
Book: For Review*
Genre:  Historical, Steampunk, Fantasy, Mystery, Gothic, Action-Adventure, MG, YA-MG Crossover
Recommended Age: 9+
Contains: Mild Swearing, Smoking References
Author's Site: Edward Carey

Clod Iremonger is not supposed to, but he hears a brass door handle saying, “Alice Higgs”.  And his birth object, a universal bath plug, constantly calls out, “James Henry Hayward”.
The rest of the Iremonger family would rather the objects collected from the rubbish heaps of London stayed quiet.  But something is happening.
The objects, piled up inside and around Heap House over generations, are not staying in their place.  With the arrival of Lucy Pennant, everything shifts, and Clod will have to decide where he belongs.

"A Gathering, a Gathering, quieter than the storm!"
The Iremongers are powerful, rich and very peculiar.  They own the heaps – the rubbish – and have built a house (and empire) upon them.
But Clod is even more peculiar than the other Iremongers.  He hears objects talk to him – birth objects, a possession given to each Iremonger as a baby, chosen specifically for them.  His birth object is a bath plug called James Henry Hayward.
When Aunt Rosamund's doorhandle – Alice Higgs – goes missing, things begin to go downhill.
Especially when Lucy Pennant arrives and begins to work as a servant downstairs – and Clod begins to hear the objects say more than just their names for the first time in his life...
It turns out there's a sickness in London.  And in Heaphouse things are changing – strange things keep happening.
Does it have something to do with Clod's strange ability?  With the birth objects?  What secrets lie among the heaps that surround the house of the Iremongers...?
I'd seen Heap House talked about.  I'd thought, yeah, that looks pretty good.  And then I didn't buy it.  But when I heard Olivia Mead talk about the series, heard how excited and in love she was, I knew I needed to read it as soon as possible.  And I am now kicking myself for not picking it up sooner.  Heap House is brilliantly bizarre and bonkers and so, so good!  It is literally perfect for all Lemony Snicket fans – and for anyone who likes crazy steampunk-esque, Victorian-era books.  
Clod was a little odd (ha! that rhymed), but he was brilliant.  Sure, he was a little naive and innocent at times (especially considering his age), but he was inquisitive and clever and funny too.
Lucy was awesome – snarky, curious, rebellious and exactly what I like in a leading girl.
I'm not going to lie to you, their relationship felt a little... not so real.  Maybe it's because it's a MG book and I'm used to YA romances.  Maybe it's because it felt a little quick.  Maybe it's because I'm nit-picking – but I have to nit-pick, especially since this is pretty much my only nit to pick at!  
Ok, this analogy has gotten really weird and kind of gross...
I just want to add that, towards the end, they were kind of totally adorable.  Yes, they fell for one another fast.  But they were very funny when the two of them together, and very cute too.  
Now, I'm going to move onto the rest of the Iremonger family – simply put, that family be crazy!  Crazy and bizarre and absolutely intriguing.  My favourite Iremonger had to be Tummis: he was just so amazing and the sweetest, funniest character ever, bless his cotton socks.  I rather liked Uncle Aliver too – he was brilliant.  I loathed Moorcus and was confused by Grandfather and Grandmother.  The downstairs Iremongers (non-full-blooded family members who still had Iremonger blood, but not enough, and were therefore servants) were almost as quirky as the Upstairs Iremongers.  Basically, the whole supporting cast was kooky and intriguing and often hilarious.
I adored Carey's writing: it was so fitting with the time period, so exciting and intriguing and brilliant.  I loved that we got multiple POVs – our two main narrators were Clod and Lucy, but we got journal snippets from various other members of the Iremonger family.  This mode of storytelling was brilliant and kept me utterly hooked.  As did the plot: from the moment Heap House began, the story grabbed me and refused to let go.  It's hard to write too much about the plot – no spoilers! – but I adored it.  It was dark and addictive and suspenseful and mysterious and intriguing – but with funny moments too, to lighten the heap up!
This world was pure genius!  It was grittier, dirtier and way more interesting than any Victorian-era setting Dickens wrote about.  It had elements of steampunk in it (AKA, one of my favourite ever genres and fashion style), but mostly it was dark and dirty and made of curious objects and whispering voices and piles of rubbish...  It was like Victorian grunge-punk...  OK, that's not a thing, forget that.  But seriously, I was totally hooked by this creepy world and was absolutely desperate to find out all of its hidden, dirty little secrets.
I'm finding it really hard to describe Heap House well, to find the words to do my feels justice.  It was just so bonkers and so brilliant and so much fun to read!  I never knew what to expect, didn't want to stop reading and was absolutely desperate for Foulsham the moment I put Heap House down!  I mean, that ending...  Wow!  Talk about huge finales and shock cliff-hangers!
Seriously, though: it you are looking for something fun and unique to read, love Lemony Snicket and a book that can make you laugh, think and sit on the edge of your seat, Heap House is an absolute must read!

The Potion Diaries by Amy Alward

Series: Potion, Book One
Publisher: Simon&Schuester
Format: Paperback
Published: 2nd July 2015
Number of Pages: 368
Book: Bought
Genre:  Fantasy, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Romance, Mystery, Action-Adventure, YA
Recommended Age: 11+
Contains: Violence, Swearing
Author's Site: Amy Alward

When the Princess of Nova accidentally poisons herself with a love potion meant for her crush, she falls crown-over-heels in love with her own reflection.  Oops.  A nationwide hunt is called to find the cure, with competitors travelling the world for the rarest ingredients, deep in magical forests and frozen tundras, facing death at every turn.
Enter Samantha Kemi – an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.  Sam’s family were once the most respected alchemists in the kingdom, but they’ve fallen on hard times, and winning the hunt would save their reputation.  But can Sam really compete with the dazzling powers of the ZoroAster megapharma company?  And just how close is she willing to get to Zain Aster, her dashing enemy, in the meantime?
Just to add to the pressure, this quest is all over social media.  And the world news.
No big deal then.

'Despite both of them knowing how bad things are with the business, neither will let me do anything other than be an apprentice to my grandad.
Because when you have the Kemi gift, you have to use it.'
In Samantha Kemi's world, you’re either ordinary or Talented – with or without magic.  The Kemis are not Talented, but they were once prosperous – as master alchemists and potion makers, they were respected by everyone, the chosen ones of the Royal family.
But now things have changed – synth potions are huge and natural alchemists are no longer needed.  
Until the Princess Evelyn mixes a natural love potion to give to her crush Zain Aster (the relative of the first synthetic potion maker and heir to the mega-wealthy ZoroAster Corp company) – and accidentally drinks the potion herself.  And then falls in love.  With herself.
With the magic of Nova unbalanced, a Wilde Hunt is called – all alchemists, both natural and synth, are called to find a cure.  A race that will lead them all over, searching for ingredients and battling to win – both the Royal's approval and a magical prize.
But for Sam, it's a way to prove that the Kemis' way of potion-making is best and to restore her family's name.
But with the gorgeous Zain also competing and the world watching their every move, can Sam pull it off?  Can she save the princess, her land and her family?
I began reading The Potion Diaries after finding out Amy Alward would be at YALC.  And was instantly enchanted.  I've already read the brilliant The Oathbreaker's Shadow by Amy - and whilst The Potion Diaries was seriously different it was equally amazing.  I've not read anything quite so much fun for ages – I was barely two pages in before I fell totally in love.   This is the kind of book I love to read!  Magical adventures mixed up with an alternate modern reality with loads of friendship and family and romantic love added in too.
Sam was awesome – clever, funny, brave, a bit quirky and totally devoted to her family.  And she was also just so real – I mean, her fear of being anonymous, of never doing anything that makes an impact, isn't that something all teenagers feel?  Sure, her problems are amplified by being non-magical in a magical world, of trying to live up to a family name long forgotten, but it was so real anyway.  I loved how badass and clever Sam was and I can't wait to see more of her in the second Potion Diaries book!
Zain was totally not what I was expecting when we were first introduced to him – actually, he tested my expectations a few times.  But I loved it when he was being all sweet and shy and kinda totally adorable – that thing with the coffee?  Heart-meltingly sweet!  But yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing more of Zain.
As for our supporting cast, Kirsty was so butt-kickingly amazing!  Being a Finder sounds awesome and I loved Kirsty's whip-sharp sense of humour.  Eve was obviously very clever, but what we saw of her...  Well, we saw her in love with her reflection.  So... But I look forward to seeing more of the non-magically-obsessively-in-love, not-so-crazy-and-out-of-control Evelyn.
And I loved Sam's crazy family – they were brilliant!  And really made the story for me: I loved the kookiness of them all, loved how much they loved each other.  Sam's little sister was so brave and adorable, her parents a little frazzled but so loving, her grandfather quiet and a little grumpy with so many secrets – I can't wait until he reveals more of them!  But I loved the angle the family thing lent to the story – and the friends too.  Anita and Arjun, Sam's friends, were brilliant – Anita was such a good friend, always there to help Sam, no matter what.  Loved it all.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of split POVs – and I loved reading from both Sam and Eve's perspectives; I especially enjoyed seeing Evelyn going from a confident princess with a crush to a magic-crazed, obsessive, dangerously in love super-witch.  Why?  Because it was fascinating.  And kind of terrifying.
And then the plot... it was so fast-paced and exciting!  A quest – a real quest! – but broadcast over social media!  It was just so cool!  And the way Sam was always moving, always thinking, always getting that next ingredient...  Loved it.  I also loved the way Sam and Zain's relationship developed – it felt really natural and sweet, even though the Kemis and Asters were basically sworn enemies at the time (long story - read The Potion Diaries and find out all about it).
This world – God, I wanna live here!  Action, adventure, magic, potions, social media...  It literally sounds like my dream world.  I mean, can you imagine going by mirror to see a unicorn and posting about it on Twitter?  That would literally be the coolest thing ever.  And all the alchemy, the various mythologies around the world, the Talenteds and ordinary people and then the awesome Kemi potion brewing skill...  I was blown away by the depth of this world – and also by how seamlessly I just kind of... fit in.  You know?  The mythology was so easy to pick up and it was so much fun to explore the world alongside Sam.  Oh, and also the Royal family!  Can you imagine if the Queen had magic?  How cool would that be!  
Am I the only one with this dream?  Perhaps...
So yes, I had a lot of fun reading The Potion Diaries.  It was such an awesome, exciting, easy and enjoyable read – I was so sad to leave the world after I put the book down!  I have to wait until July for book two people!  How am I meant to live without my magical social media hit?  I just don't know anymore!  
Seriously though, if you love urban fantasies that are more fun than they are angst-ridden, with a mythology that explores the whole world and also takes elements from all over our world, The Potion Diaries is definitely for you.  
Ok, I can't resist it anymore.  I'm gonna do the potion ingredients of The Potion Diaries.  How can I not, guy?  Here goes...
1 cup of coffee beans for the adrenaline of adventure
1 strand of hair from a unicorn's tail for magic
5 drops of your blood for the sense of family
2 rose petals for romance
1 slither of metal from a broken blade for a successful quest
The crushed powder of one dried, poisonous scorpion for danger
3 spoonfuls of chocolate for pure awesomeness
Allow to simmer, strain and then enjoy.
Ok, if you guys can think of something better tell me – I think this isn't my best work!  But there is a lot of adventures, magic, family, romance, quests and awesomeness in The Potion Diaries, so...  Yeah, I stand by my potion.  Until I or one of you lovely people think of something better.
An alchemist, I clearly am not…

Lorali by Laura Dockrill

Publisher: HotKey
Format: ARC**
Published: 2nd July 2015
Number of Pages: 352
Book: For Review*
Genre:  Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Contemporary, Romance, Coming-Of-Age, Comedy, Adventure, YA
Recommended Age: 14+
Contains: Violence, Swearing, Alcohol, Smoking and Sexual Assault References
Author's Site: Laura Dockrill

Colourful, raw, brave, rich and fantastical - this mermaid tale is not for the faint-hearted.
Looking after a naked girl he found washed up under Hastings pier isn't exactly how Rory had imagined spending his sixteenth birthday. But more surprising than finding her in the first place is discovering where she has come from.
Lorali is running not just from the sea, not just from her position as princess, but her entire destiny. Lorali has rejected life as a mermaid, and become human.
But along with Lorali's arrival, and the freak weather suddenly battering the coast, more strange visitors begin appearing in Rory's bemused Sussex town. With beautifully coiffed hair, sharp-collared shirts and a pirate ship shaped like a Tudor house, the Abelgare boys are a mystery all of their own. What are they really up to?
Can Rory protect Lorali? And who from? And where does she really belong, anyway? 

“You can't go back.  You know you can't…”
Rory is just eating chips on the beach in Hastings, chilling on his birthday, when a storm appears from nowhere, sending him running for cover.  Under the pier, he finds a girl.  She's naked, new and different.  He becomes her protector, but he doesn't know what he's let himself in for.
Because the girl is called Lorali and she isn't just a girl.  She used to be a mermaid – but she has run away from everything.
And now the Mer are terrified – the Queen is causing storms, Opal (the human-expert mermaid) contacts her human helpers (who are a group of young, well-kempt pirates) and they are searching the seas desperately.
When they realise that the princess might not be hiding under a rock in the deep blue somewhere, however, the Queen is forced to take drastic measures – ones that will change the world (both above and below the ocean) forever...
I received a shell in the post in March.  It was beautiful and came with the cryptic note #ReadingLorali.  And yes, I really wanted to be reading Lorali.  So when we saw Laura Dockrill at the HotKey and Piccadilly Bloggers' Brunch, heard her brilliant speech about Lorali and saw the utterly gorgeous cover, I knew I had to read it.  As soon as freaking possible.  And so I started reading on the train home and fell in love.  This isn't like any other mermaid story I’ve ever read.  It most certainly has that unique Laura Dockrill stamp.  It is brilliant and it is bonkers and it is just so. much. fun!
The characters were all very varied, very unique and totally crazy.  Lots of them had very intriguing backstories as well.  But what really made them all awesome was how absolutely freaking bonkers they all were!  Gotta love the eccentric ones!
Lorali was hilarious – so sweet and naive and funny and innocent and adorable.  Even if she was a little unworldly, she was still so brave and lovely and strong.  She was also so funny: like how clueless Ariel is in The Little Mermaid - that's a little what Lorali's like and it is so sweet and funny!
Rory was really sweet and so so kind - especially for a teenager.  He was just so protective and adorable too – him and Lorali together were really cute!  Even if they did have a bit of an insta-love situation going on, it was still so darn cute! 
The pirates were, according to Laura, based on the "fittest guys ever".  They were admittedly hilarious, bonkers, over-the-top and pretty damn badass – even if they were rather sexist and intimidating at times!  I found them so funny!  Egor was probably my favourite – gotta love a guy who sews!  But all of them: they were so crazy, so funny and witty and snarky.  And yeah, Opal, we get the crushes... trust us...
Flynn was so sweet and odd.  And his granddad, Iris, was brilliant too!  And Opal: she was bonkers and funny – like oh-so-many of the characters!
The personification of the Sea was fascinating – she was motherly and nurturing, cold and wild.  Her voice was beautiful, her chapters varied and intriguing.
I was seriously impressed by the diverse kinds and styles of writing Laura used in Lorali.  I mean, seriously.  The beautiful lyrical writing of the sea, the rough talk of the pirates, Rory's teenaged voice and Lorali's poetical, soft way of speaking...  It was all so brilliant and so addictive.  And then there were the newspaper clippings and the blog pieces and... sigh.  I really did love Laura's writing in this – and the split POVs!
This plot...  I never knew what to expect.  Never.  It was as wild and unpredictable as the sea.  I was literally clueless as to what would come next and was hooked from the word go.  Full of twists, turns, insanity and laughter, Lorali was definitely a wave I loved to ride and never wanted to end – even when I was rushing so I could find out what happened!  And the ending... it was so unexpected.  I'm not quite sure how I feel about it: on one hand love, it's perfect... on another, not so much... I don't know!
There were parts of the book that were really hard to read – Iris' backstory being one example...  This may be a book about mermaids, but don't go expecting a Disney movie interpretation of mermaids.  Lorali might be a book about mermaids, with pirates and sirens and the sea, but it is very much set in the real world, with real world problems and issues.  It is what made this book even more special and unique.
Well, that and the mermaid mythology, which was intriguing and, I think, really unique.  To begin with, it's unclear how Mer are made, where they come from, but soon it's all brilliantly clear, thanks to one of our narrators, The Sea.  And their home, the Whirl, deep in the sea, the palace and the Queen Keppel and the tapestries of the Mer and just... everything.  It was genius, creative, beautiful and so different and dark at times.  Somehow, Laura made this otherworldly Mer universe feel real and true – thanks to the diverse backgrounds the Mer came from and the way she doesn't shy away from darkness, without covering everything with it. 
I'm a bonkers gal myself.  I love being 'special' as my family calls it.  And ergo I adored Lorali to absolute pieces.  It was just so much fun – so funny and insane and addictive.  This is a must-read for all teenagers who still think mermaids rock – but wish they were a little less Little Mermaid esque.  It is a book for people who love to laugh, but love a brilliant, magical storyline just as much.  It is just a must-read!  It was so insane and so brilliant!  Yay Lorali!  
Y’know, I read very few truly original books.  But Lorali was utterly original, utterly amazing and utterly addictive. It hooked me from the very first word, reeled me in until I was lost in the blue waters of the Mer world and the rocky waves of the storyline and didn't let me go – even after I had finished reading.  And now I am so very desperate for a sequel.  I'm just not ready to give these wacky mermaids and characters up yet...
