Blog Tour Review - To Cage A God by Elizabeth May

 Blog Tour Review - To Cage A God by Elizabeth May To cage a god is divine. To be divine is to rule. To rule is to destroy. Using ancient secrets, Galina and Sera’s mother grafted gods into their bones. Bound to brutal deities and granted forbidden power no commoner has held in a millennia, the sisters have grown up to become living weapons. Raised to overthrow an empire―no matter the cost. With their mother gone and their country on the brink of war, it falls to the sisters to take the helm of the rebellion and end the cruel reign of a royal family possessed by destructive gods. Because when the ruling alurea invade, they conquer with fire and blood. And when they clash, common folk burn. While Sera reunites with her estranged lover turned violent rebel leader, Galina infiltrates the palace.

Review - Mort the Meek and the Ravens' Revenge by Rachel Delahaye

 Review - Mort the Meek and the Ravens' Revenge by Rachel Delahaye


On Brutalia violence is a way of life. Ravenous ravens circle overhead, monstrous grot bears cause chaos and the streets are bulging with brawls. But Mort isn’t like the other islanders – he’s determined to live peacefully. His struggle is made even tougher when the cruel queen appoints Mort as Royal Executioner. No one has challenged the royals and lived to tell the tale. Can Mort keep his head and outwit the queen?



Mort the Meek and the Ravens' Revenge by Rachel Delahaye  is hilariously horrid and nicely nasty and a whole heap of frightening fun! It's so nasty, brutal and violent, but in such a clever, funny and downright entertaining way. I loved it. 

Mort is a pacifist living on an island full of people who are absolutely, definitely not pacifists. Okay, so maybe he can just keep his head down and not make a fuss and everything will be okay? Well, maybe not as Mort is the new official executioner!

There's something a little ridiculous about this book, a purposeful ridiculousness though, and it enjoys that and revels in it and makes something wickedly fun out of it. Everything is turned up to max here, the nasty people are the nastiest they could be, and the situations are as awful as situations get, and poor Mort is stuck in the middle of it. It may be a guilty pleasure, but it's a pleasure nevertheless!

What can I say? I loved seeing awful things happen to Mort, and only partly because I also loved him seeing him use his intellect and his compassion to get out of it all.
