Suffice to say, I enjoyed this book immensely. I think it combines a lot of interesting things together and it breathes a new, different, take into Arthurian Myth from a Black perspective.
I’d been seeing this book around, and WITCHES so of course I had to request it on NetGalley, because, why not? I think that this book was good, and I am struggling to put my thoughts into words in regards to how I felt about the book.
This was witches done right. This was demons done right. This was the whole package of evil goodness that I love and is my cup of tea. It was also…pretty much in my wheelhouse of everything I could ever want in a book? Like, this book was magnificent and I am obsessed with it now. I need ALL the merch and good stuff that comes along with it.
I will admit I did not read the summary before adding this book to my TBR or my hold list. Instead I was captivated by the title and cover and went WITCHES and thus ends the story of why I added this book.
When I saw the description of this book I was excited. It sounded like one that I would really enjoy. I have a BA in Classics, and so I was truly looking forward to a take on mythology. And this was definitely a take on it. At first I wasn’t sure how to feel about this book, because I felt that there was nothing about it that I really hated. But there was nothing about it that made me gasp or roll over in surprise. And so, this ended up being a middle book for me. One that I enjoyed, but not one that I am thinking about perpetually.
Let me preface this by saying I have never read Practical Magic or its sequel. In fact, I have heard of them, but never read them. I will be reading them at some point, as this book was amazing! I really liked it, and I think it was quite emotional at some points.
As you may or may not know I had (have) conflicted feelings over Serpent & Dove. The first time I read it, I wasn’t wild about it. The second I really liked it! This is my review for the book. Before I started Blood & Honey I did review S&D.
I will admit, I loved the book cover from the moment I saw it. I am also obsessed with celestial things – so yeah. I am shallow, but all I knew was I wanted to read this book. I got the Owlcrate box, and the cover change was to my favorite color: purple. I was immensely pleased.
Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for The Faithless Hawk, run by TBR And Beyond Tours! I’m so very excited to be part of this amazing tour and group!
First off there were a whole bunch of things I loved about this book. We get Yadriel who is an amazing character. He has such a sweetness to him that I adore and you really want all the best for him. Julian too is a great character.
