Mini reviews: Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz & Dawn Study by Maria V Snyder

I'm a fan of Horowitz's Alex Rider and Power of Five series, so I was intrigued when I saw that he was writing a murder mystery.

Magpie Murder's features two murder mysteries - there's a story within the story. It was cleverly crafted and both stories held my attention. They were equally unpredictable as I honestly had no clue who the murderers were, and was trying to solve the mystery along with the two main characters. Plus, the story within the story gave me Agatha Christie vibes, whose Hercule Poirot books I adore.  

All in all, Magpie Murders was an enjoyable read.

The original Study trilogy holds a special place in my heart. It's the trilogy that first got me into high fantasy - which is now my favourite genre.

Dawn study has all the usual ingredients of a Study book. Yelena and Valek kicking butt with the gang, plot twists, adventure, and of course romance.

I'll miss the characters and the world, but I think this is the right place for the series to end.

Overall, the final book in the Study series was thoroughly satisfying.
