I won’t provide a synopsis here as this is the 5th book in the series, but you can always click on the Goodreads link above. I am a BookDepository affiliate, which in no way affects my opinion.



I did it. I read this entire series in the month of December! I almost never finish an entire series at once because after 2 or 3 books I feel filled with the world, like I need to take a break from it. The Legend of Eli Monpress series was the complete opposite of that for me: I couldn’t get enough of this!

If you don’t know what this series is about, here’s the basic synopsis of the first book: Eli Monpress is the greatest thief in the world and he means to prove that by raising his bounty impossibly high. To achieve that though, he’ll need to pull of some big heists and what better place to start than by kidnapping the king?

He gets into the most ridiculous situations together with his two travelling companions Josef, the greatest swordsman, and Nico. This series just made me laugh constantly. Eli is such an incredibly hilarious character -and not a modest one either, but we’ll forgive him for that.

This is the final book in the series and let me tell you: IT WAS SO SUSPENSEFUL! This book was full of surprises and action and let me tell you, it wasn’t going very well for the world they live in. Because I was so attached to the characters, I couldn’t tear myself away from it. I can’t really tell you more about it because that would just spoil the entire series for you.

I’ll just leave you with the following advice and observations:

Eli Monpress is a genius character. Honestly, I loved reading about him.

The Shepherdess should really go see a psychiatrist.

This world is incredible, I’d like to live in it.


#FridayReads December 26th, 2014

Hello everyone! The week is almost over which means that it’s time for another #Fridayreads post. The study-period for me began last week, which means that until the 12th of January I will be studying every day and barely do anything else. And then, from the 12th to the 31st of January, I’ll be making all of my exams. I will try to read some books during this time, but I will probably read less than any other time. Or at least I should!

I am currently reading Spirit’s End (The Legend of Eli Monpress #5) by Rachel Aaron. I just finished the previous book and couldn’t believe the ending! I HAD to read on. This series is so good! I think I would recommend it to everyone.

It’s a fantasy series but I think that I would also recommend it to people that don’t usually read fantasy. This series is quite easy to get into and I got attached to the characters pretty quickly. It doesn’t have that enormous list of important characters that some fantasy series do -yes, I am talking about you Game of Thrones- so it’s not that hard.

If I finish this one this weekend, I don’t know what I’ll pick up next. I have quite a few books for review that I need to read so maybe I’ll read one of those. I’ll have to see what I’m in the mood for!

Are you reading anything right now? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
