Guys…Gals, I am about to get really hyped up about this. I am going to tell you what I think of this book, and I think very highly of this book. I read it so fast, and kept having a hard time putting it down. Let me tell you why, cuz why else would you read this review?
This story is about Evie O’Neil who gets shipped off to New York, for reasons you shall discover when you read it. (cuz ya will!!…probably…maybe.DO IT) She has to live with her uncle Will, who is absolutely obsessed with the occult. This is really where the fun begins, but even the opening of the story is pretty damn creepy.
The story takes place in 1926 and Evie gets mixed up in some occult and mysteries of her own. She has a supernatural power that she tries to keep a secret, but when a murder occurs and her uncle gets called to help with the investigation Evie gets thrown into a world of craziness.
The book is written in such a wonderful way that you feel that you’re being transported back in time. Some of the scenes in the book are so creepy that I actually had a moment where I didn’t want to walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night to pee. TMI…I know but seriously all the little shadows as I walked out of the room really creeped me out after reading this book.
I am really looking forward to the second book that comes out soon (August 25, 2015) and I hope it is just as creepy!!! I absolutely recommend this book!!!
This one gets 5 out of 5 metal horns from me!!
Okay so I am a little behind on my book reviews.Bare with me as I change up some things here on the site.
So I need to tell you all about this book.
Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley is one of the most imaginative stories I have read in quite some time. You can’t compare this to anything else. You can’t describe it by saying that it’s the next game of thrones or the next hunger games, because this book stands out on its own.
It is about Aza Ray who has been sick her entire life. It is a mystery what the character has, but it is a lung disease where she has a lot of trouble breathing.
Suddenly she starts seeing ships in the sky. That’s right SHIPS (ok this aspect is a little like Stardust, but thats where the comparisons end) Her family kind of just shrugs it off as “oh well you have crazy side effects from your medication…ships in the sky…HAHA” (not a direct quote here.
The only one who really believes, is her best friend Jason. (yes theres a bit of a love interest here)
Craziness ensues and she ends up in a world where she’s no longer sick, and she’s no longer weak.
Listen, I don’t want to give too much away but I really loved how creative this story was. I read it fairly quickly as it’s not that big of a book (300ish pages) I loved it, and highly recommend it if you’re looking for some out of this world fun and a unique story.
Comment below if you’ve read it, but please NO SPOILERS!! Comment below if you haven’t read it as well!!
It gets four out of five metal horns from me(like my new rating system?)

Thank you for considering me as a possible reviewer for your book(s). I am new to the game of reviewing, but currently my pace of reading is about 8-9 books per month. I am quite a fast reader, and am hoping to get more experience with reviewing. I will take the time to consider each review request I receive. Please read the following information before submitting a request:
I will always be 100% honest. I will not rip apart a writer, as I respect anyone who can sit down and write out an entire novel, but being 100% honest means, I will not sugar coat something, if I do not like it. If you are only looking to get positive feed back, that’s not good for your future writing, and I refuse to review anything that only wants a pat on the back and a high five.
I reserve the right to not finish and/or not review a book that I accept for review. If after 50-100 pages I cannot get into the story I will not finish it, and will not review it.
I will review at my own pace unless otherwise requested. PLEASE EMAIL ME with said request.
Generally I am interested in reviewing book in the following genres:
- Young Adult Fiction
- Contemporary/Literary Adult Fiction
- Historical Fiction
I AM NOT INTERESTED IN:
- Christian Fiction
I will take a self published book into consideration, but email me first with info about the book.
I read PRINT and EBOOKS so please let me know what format is available and if I can choose.
I will also post the review to GoodReads.
Please send any review requests to me via email at MetalandtheGeek@outlook.com
