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 - Dark Matter: Evolution by Teri Terry

Review - Dark Matter: Evolution by Teri Terry

Shay has followed Xander and joined his mysterious scientific cult at their remote Scottish compound. She's desperately searching for Callie, who went missing before the start of the epidemic that kills 95% of cases, and leaves a tiny number of survivors with astonishing new powers.

Can Shay uncover the truth about the origins of the epidemic, find Callie and perhaps even rekindle her relationship with Kai? Or will Xander's grand plans destroy them all for ever?



Morally complex, thrilling and very clever. 

I've enjoyed the whole of this trilogy and Evolution didn't disappoint as it brought the whole thing to an end.

The science has been quite grounded through the first two books, considering the subject matter. I felt like Evolution took it a little further 'out there' at times, but I think it worked within the story and worked as an explanation for the sickness that's been affecting people in different ways.

The POV characters took quite a surprising turn. I definitely missed one of my favourite voices from the earlier two novels, but it played out really effectively. Each POV character got a fair amount of attention, and it never felt like I was being directed away from what I wanted to see.

One of my favourite elements of Teri Terry's writing is the moral complexity and ambiguity, and this was better than ever in Evolution. It was so hard to tell who was right and who was wrong, or even if there was a right or a wrong. Yet despite this complexity, there was a clear bad guy, and a clear heroine. I just wasn't sure how much I agreed or disagreed with their motivations and actions. This grey area makes this trilogy a fascinating one.
