Monstress #1 by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda Mini Reviews: Monstress #1, Kingfisher, and Golden Son

Book Description: Steampunk meets Kaiju in this original fantasy epic for mature readers, as young Maika risks everything to control her psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, placing her in the center of a devastating war between human and otherworldly forces.

Review of Havemercy

Havemercyby Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett448pp (Paperback)My Rating: 9/10Amazon Rating: 4/5LibraryThing Rating: 3.87/5Goodreads Rating: 3.67/5 Havemercy is a collaborative debut novel written by Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett.
