Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die Book 3) by Danielle Paige Review

Hi readers, I'm sorry it has taken me SO long to put this review up for a relatively short book. I've been really busy and I haven't had time to read :(. 

Yellow Brick War starts from where The Wicked Will Rise finished. Amy and Nox have both just battled to try to save Oz. 

Spoilers below...

In the first pages of the third book we're thrust back into the action straight away. We see Mombi, Gurt and Glamora asking for the next witch to step up and join the circle. Amy thinks this is her but is a little confused when she realises it's Nox. Nox does step up to save the place he's called home but he knows that a relationship between him and Amy is forbidden when he does this. I, personally love a forbidden romance in a book so I was all up for this. 

Amy is told by the witches to go back to Kanas and find shoes that Dorothy left there. They will be the only thing that will let her defeat her. She does this because she wants to check on her mother more than for what the witches want. 

When she returns to Kansas alone, Amy finds her mother living in a flat with a boyfriend. Her mum seems to have calmed down some since Amy left and isn't as wild anymore. The shoes are at the school so Amy has to go back there and get detention so she can clean up to find them. Madison, her enemy from before Oz becomes her friend and helps her as well as Dustin Sr and Jr, Madison's boyfriend and son. What is revealed while she's at the school is surprising though. I don't want to spoil it here as it's what makes this book exciting. 

When Amy returns to Oz after Kansas she's back into trying to pinpoint Dorothy's whereabouts with the witches. Before Amy left Oz Nox was cold towards her. It's only when she comes back that Nox begins to realise what he feels for Amy is important. As their relationship continues to develop, they find both Dorothy and Glinda. While Glamora deals with Glinda - Amy is left to fight Dorothy. She does this with the help of Nox. She also destroys the castle of the Emerald City but she does "defeat" Dorothy. I put defeat in quote marks because we're not actually sure that she is defeated. Glamora becomes merged with Glinda so no one is sure if she's good or evil. 

There will be another book!!! I cannot wait to read it as I love these stories. I really hope there's more romance in the next book. I've got a feeling there will be as Amy and Nox have to help Madison and Dustin defeat someone other than Dorothy and Glinda/Glamora. Someone from their world. 

I'm giving this book 4 stars because the only thing I would have added to it were more Amy and Nox moments. I love the way the author writes her version of Oz. It sounds so whimsical and fairytale like. 

Have any of you read this series? If so what do/did you think of it? Did you like it as much as I did? Comment below and tell me.

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s best friend supporting him through his worries a…

Solstice at Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 3) by Kit Berry Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Solstice at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry and I really liked it! It’s the third book in the Stonewylde series, the finale of the original trilogy. This was a reread as the first and second book were, as well. I don’t think I necessarily had as much fun as I did reading the previous two books because I didn’t think quite as much happened in it. Reading is subjective, though, so we all experience different thoughts and feelings as we read. That’s part of what I love about it. Anyway, there are 5 books in the Stonewylde series in total. The last 2 focus on a different storyline to the others, however, with the lead characters from the first three books as adults. 
4 Stars!
In “Solstice at Stonewylde” we’re still following Yul and Sylvie and their relationship where they’re trying to be together no matter what. Living in a society run by a tyrannical leader makes that hard, however. Magus, the leader of Stonewylde won’t let Yul and Sylvie be together and he…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…
