    • I think I m going to have to mark this one DNF 25%.I initially requested White Stag because gorgeous cover Goblin King a happy Chelsea The first chapter was incredibly suspenseful, dropping us right in the middle of an action packed, tense scene It was a fantastic start and I was anxious to see how the author would fill in the backstory, along with bringing us forward in a tense race to hunt the stag I quickly realized that perhaps this book needed a bit work before being released I think [...]


    • tw mentions of rape, torture, violenceLadies and gentlemen, there s a new Rhys in town and he goes by the name of Soren.I honestly, didn t doubt for a second that I was going to end up loving this one I mean, I freaking LOVED Wintersong, and it changed my life basically forever because I am now just one giant pile of goblin trash So, its not really a surprise that the minute I heard about this book I knew I was going to spend the rest of my days eagerly anticipating the release of this book tw m [...]


    • This is about goblins and erlkings and monstrous girls so basically a checklist of things I quite enjoy reading I am PLEASED It had a lot of fae culture woven through a Norse setting, but focusing on goblins instead, and I ve been reading SO many fae books recently that this just fit right into what I was in the mood for Plus it s bitterly cold and cruelly wicked with knives and claws and fights around every few pages But it also takes the time to really discuss and delve into PTSD and me This i [...]


    • TW Mention of rape At first, I couldn t figure out what bothered me about this story I read it, and then read it again, trying to figure out why I just didn t feel comfortable with it Then, after thinking on it, I realized what was wrong The main character s rape is used for shock value It s brought up again and again, to either reinforce how bad the bad guy is, or to force sympathy for the character It s a go to whenever the character is upset It s a constant reminder bashed over our h TW Menti [...]


    • DNF 35% This one is not for me after all, and I ll tell you why First anyone who writes a book at age 22 is pretty amazing That is quite an accomplishment Respect But, I didn t like the main character Janneke is so angsty So much self loathing It s basically a deal breaker for me I get that horrible things have happened to her and she was forcefully brought to the Permafrost home to goblins and other creatures But, the angst over it irritated me.I think others will like this and it DNF 35% This [...]


    • This isn t going to be a warm and fuzzy review.I love dark fantasy stories that involve the folk and jumped on the opportunity to read and review White Stag I discovered the origins of this story after I had started it so cool and highly commend the author for getting her work published after originally publishing online.That said, this story needs A LOT of work still The premise is very interesting and I enjoyed the main characters, Janneke and Soren, but the plot only gets confusing This isn t [...]
