Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.
Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she’s fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it’s time to act.
Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, though if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it’s how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.
But some jobs aren’t as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.
With great honor I present you Kar, one of the admins from the geeksneakpeek.net. She accepted my offer to do a guest review for my blog. Thank you very much, Kar!
We’re continuing this blog’s manga/anime/comic book/graphic novel month with this post – Top 5 favourite manga/anime. I don’t watch anime or read manga as much as I used to, but here are some of the series that I like. I’m kind of mainstream in my choices, but whatever! Let’s get started!
I decided to reach out to all of the book bloggers out there. I realise that my blog is quite new and not very popular (yet! Hahaha! *evil laugh*) but even so – if you want, you can write a post or write a review on my blog. I could do the same for you if you like. Sounds fun, right?
So….who’s in? 🙂
Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite cover’s with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in Linky (so we can visit).
You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!

That’s all seventeen-year-old Alice Monroe thinks about. Committed to a mental ward at Savage Isle, Alice is haunted by memories of the fire that killed her boyfriend, Jason. A blaze her twin sister Cellie set. But when Chase, a mysterious, charismatic patient, agrees to help her seek vengeance, Alice begins to rethink everything. Writing out the story of her troubled past in a journal, she must confront hidden truths.
Is the one person she trusts only telling her half the story? Nothing is as it seems in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller from the debut author Emiko Jean. ( ~annotation from GoodReads~)
I know, I know!
I’m a horrible person – I haven’t done any meme this week.
Blame it on my studying! I got some study materials for my final university exams (I will be graduating in June), so I was going over all of the materials to see if they are complete.
I will resume doing memes next week. Sorry, people!
