Review: Drive Me Crazy by Tracy Wolff

The Faerie Queen’s review Drive Me Crazy started out a bit strange for me, but it quickly picked up after a few chapters. Before I get started, a few trigger warnings to mention: there is past child abuse, physical fighting and cheating in this one. At first, the interactions between Quinn and Elise felt awkward and forced, with the words claiming an intimacy and sizzle that didn’t come off the page. The author jumped right in and said that there should be something there, but we hadn’t had enough time to first get to know the characters. BUT THEN. It quickly escalated. The whole book takes place over several days, really, so it did seem a bit like insta-love, though this was tempered by the knowledge that, even though the two hadn’t seen each other for a decade, back in their teens, they had years of messing with each other – and then messing […]

About the book Excerpt Helena enters the room like she expects someone to jump out from dark corner. Neck stretched, she takes in a high quality yet typical hotel room with a king-sized bed and two nightstands. The TV is big and flat, resting on top of a dresser, and then there’s a mirror over a small office desk with a phone and some restaurant flyers on it. “It’s nice,” she says. “I like that it doesn’t smell like smoke.” “That would be terrible. Is that what you’re used to? Smoking rooms?” “We have a cigar room,” she replies, confused, until she […]

Guest Post: Katey Hawthorne, author of Alchemiya, talks about feminism

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Katey Hawthorne, author of Alchemiya! Today, Katey will be talking about how her characters would get involved in feminism in our world. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Would your characters, who fight against patriarchy in your book, get involved in feminism in our world, and in what way? For both Eugenia Ratna and Olivia Plumtree, the answer to part one of that question is a resounding “yes”. In their world, it’s alchemical knowledge rather than an old name or land ownership that designates nobility, but, well, nobility counts for a lot less these days anyhow. Still, they’d both want to use their family’s resources and name to uplift women and fight for equality every day. Eugenia’s main frustration with her world and society comes from inequality: she’s a far better alchemist than her older […]

About the book Excerpt Anna grabbed Brendan from behind, wrapping her arms around his shoulders. As she caught her breath, she peered up at the ship. The air smelled like soda, lots of sticky sweet soda. Stairs and ladders traced the entire length of the tube, spiraling down to the base. The lights were no longer visible, since they formed the base resting on the grass. Markings engraved the metal from base to tip. There were no flags, no words of any language she knew. “Wow,” exclaimed someone from behind her. It jarred her from staring at the rocket. The townspeople around her were pulling out their cell phones, taking pictures and recording videos. “Come on.” Anna twisted […]
