Victorian Rebels-Mein Schwarzes Herz by Kerrigan Byrne

Thursday, May 31, 2018
I like the black and gold contrast with the barely to see flowers and ranks the cover shows. Is in stark contrast to the romantic cover, the English edition has. Which is titled "The Highwayman".

I still don´t know why I hit the request button – but this novel came with so many surprises, that I stopped asking myself that question.

Iron Flowers-Die Rebellinnen by Tracy Banghart

Tuesday, May 29, 2018
At first, I wasn´t sure if I really wanted to read this novel. Sure, I was kind of intrigued by its cover and back text, but also not jumping to get it. And yet something kept me coming back to it again and again. Oh, and by the way, the original title is "Grace and Fury".

Due to the law changes, DSGVO/GDPR, my blog got a little makeover on the outside, and a huge one on the inside.

As you might have noticed, my blog was offline over the past few days. I was busy to read myself into the new law stuff, to understand what I was reading and what it literally meant for me and my blog Inkvotary.

At times it was nerve-racking to deal with and it took me some days to adjust to it as best as I could. I had to make some decisions, concerning Inkvotary and its appearance as well as to work my way to all the technical things to make Inkvotary as DSGVO/GDPR compliant as possible.

At least from my side.

Some of those things I had to change will probably apply to you too. If you follow Inkvotary e.g by eMail keep reading.

The cover is gorgeous! The design is mysterious and beautiful. I am kind of swooning only by looking at it *sigh* And it fits perfectly in the design the first book had.

It took me some hours to get my head clear again, after finishing this book. The end was full of shocking moments and I wasn´t prepared for them at all.

Palace Of Glass – Die Wächterin by C.E. Bernard

Wednesday, May 02, 2018
The book is the debut novel of a German author who writes under a pseudonym. I stumbled across it while searching through the publisher’s new program for another book. Somehow the cover made me curious - who could resist such a fantastic cover? For sure not me. And the summary sounded so intriguing too, so why not ask for it?

Before we go into some details, I guess it is only fair that I tell you, that almost everyone in the German book blogosphere is thrilled over the moon about this novel.
