The Sadeiest by Austrian Spencer

Today I’m participating in the book tour for The Sadeiest. I have to say in advance that this is quite possibly the most disturbing book I’ve ever read. It’s not for the squeamish. Let’s jump into the review.

What is our perceived notion of death is wrong? What if it isn’t what we imagined at all? Maybe death actually dies for us instead of silently watching on. Death pays for his sin by dying again and again. William is a Sadeiest. William is death. He dies daily, but he also saves the trapped souls of people. He is thrown into this world with very little training. What he doesn’t know is that his destiny is so much bigger than he ever imagined.

My Thoughts on The Sadeiest

Firstly, I have to say I’m blown away by the author’s imagination. The Sadeiest is so unique. A lot of thought went into the development of the world and magic system.

I expected this to be a dark read. I was definitely right. It was extremely gruesome and graphic. And it was gritty and dark. It will be great for the toughest of horror lovers. It’s definitely darker than what I’m used to, but I can respect the storyline.

If you’re looking for a terrifying, unique horror novel this one is for you.

The Silver Box Review and Blog Tour

I am so excited to be participating in the blog tour for The Silver Box! I had a lot of fun reading this middle grade series back in October. Let’s jump into my thoughts.

Francie’s life has changed completely. Cryptic clues have lead her to this point and now she just has to piece them all together. The trials life will put her through are hard, and possibly deadly. While searching for her mom, Francie gets wrapped up in a mystery involving plant thieves. They are on the hunt for something Francie has in her possession and they want it now.

This series has been so much fun. The Silver Box brings it to a great conclusion. I love the mystery involved, but I especially love the environmental aspects included. It’s a great way to learn about real environmental issues that actually take place. The author does a fantastic job bringing those elements together. She also references cases that inspired the book on the last couple of pages.

I was a little iffy on Francie in the first book, but her character development was great. I also loved that she found this rag tag group of friends. That really helped add some life to the story.

I hope you get a chance to check this series out! It’s definitely worth the read! Plus, look how beautiful the covers are! Don’t worry about the fact that it’s middle grade. There is plenty of action to keep your interest.
