Vicarious by Paula Stokes
This book has everything I wanted from it. A badass female lead, cool technology, intrigue, mystery, action, even some swoony moments. I’ll be totally honest, I’m a huge Paula Stokes fan in general. What’s cool for me is how she can write something like Girl Against the Universe and then turn around and release something as different as VICARIOUS. Both are so incredibly well done! VICARIOUS has so many twists, turns, revelations, and feels. I highly recommend this book and I’m honestly in so much anguish waiting for FEROCIOUS to release.
Witch’s Pyre by Josephine Angelini
I read Trial by Fire on a whim. I’d been seeing it everywhere and also wanted to give audiobooks another try so off I went to Overdrive. I was hooked and then fell even further when I discovered the UK editions of the books. This was a great finale for a beloved trilogy. It was action-packed, dramatic, feels-inducing, and, at points, magically terrifying. I formed an even stronger bond with all the characters in this part than I had in the previous books; I liked them before but this time I became attached. I recommend not only this book but the entire series as a great magical story to completely lose yourself it.
