Heart of Thorns Reviews
this review + others can be found over on my blog!
I loved this book! Though, frankly, it might have to do with Quin, but I'll get there.
In the grand scheme of things, Heart of Thorns isn't entirely different from most other fantasy books. What does make it stand out is that only women have magic! And they're seen as demons. (Figures lmao) So of course our main character, Mia, is such a "creature"!
I loved Mia, though. Throughout the book, it was easy to sympathise with her, in more ways than ...more

I just couldn’t get into the whole magic system - I couldn’t really understand it.
It was so plain and basic.
I read a few reviews so I would know if I should continue and many people said the last 30 % were the best. But I ...more
I've already read a manuscript of BLACK ROSE, and it's a great adventure, full of beautiful insights and heartbreaking revelations. I can't wait to see the final draft and the other books in the series.
Anyone else having a hard time rating and reviewing this book? Because I am...I have to think about this review for a few days...
