Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise and Reviews for the Malediction Trilogy:

“Amazing world building. Incredible writing. Awesome characters. No dull moments. Fierce and not-whinny-and-annoying heroine. And a swoon worthy Troll prince.  Stones and sky! I was completely engulfed in the world of Trollus. It felt like I have been living inside its world throughout the entire time I’m reading this incredible book.”
– The Nocturnal Fey

“If you’re looking for a YA fantasy full of magic and mystery and intrigue and romance and wonderful, heartfelt characters that you could easily accept to be trapped under a mountain with, then don’t just read Stolen Songbird – inhale it. Deliciously written in two POVs that are deep and personal and completely intertwined with one another, this book is at once like hot chocolate on a rainy day with a cat on your lap, and a shot of something wicked when you’re feeling wired. There’s nothing I even remotely disliked, and a list as long as most Welsh train station names of things I loved. Stolen Songbird was a dream to read, a dream to adventure through, and a nightmare to leave. I didn’t want to wake up – and neither will you.”
– Jet Black Ink

“This was an absolutely fantastic YA fantasy novel. There is a ton of wonderful magic and intrigue in this book. I love the chemistry between Cecile and Tristan and how they are both striving to make the kingdom a better place for all involved. I really enjoyed this book a ton and am very excited to see how the story wraps up in the final book of this series. This series is highly recommended to fans of intrigue heavy fantasy.”
– Hidden In Pages

“Overall, Hidden Huntress undeniably surpasses as a sequel to Stolen Songbird. I was blown away by the ending and cannot wait for book 3! Danielle L. Jensen has shaped an underground city of magical creatures into one of my most valued book worlds – and that makes me extremely excited for future works.”

Danielle L Jensen was born and raised in Calgary, Canada. At the insistence of the left side of her brain, she graduated in 2003 from the University of Calgary with a bachelor's degree in finance. But the right side of her brain has ever been mutinous; and in 2010, it sent her back to school to complete an entirely impractical English literature degree at Mount Royal University and to pursue publication. Much to her satisfaction, the right side shows no sign of relinquishing its domination. Her debut Stolen Songbird was a USA Today Bestseller.

I was really looking forward to the third book in this trilogy. I absolutely loved the first two novels and had high hopes for this conclusion. However, I was left disappointed. The book seemed to drag on forever. The writing wasn't nearly as well done as the first two books; the characters seemed to somehow devolve instead of evolve, and the really depressing ending felt like a cop out. I wasn't blown away by this one, and reading it left me in a crappy mood. I hate when books do that. Cécile and Tristan both annoyed the crap out of me in this book. They just made one stupid mistake after another. The entire novel was more or less a stupid parade, thanks to them. They didn't grow at all, and I felt like they became mentally and emotionally weaker instead of stronger. The way things ended was completely out of character, too. Marc also devolved, which was sad to see, and none of the relationships in this installment felt like they mattered. They just seemed to exist to forward the plot. There was no feeling there at all. I didn't like that. The plot was action-packed, but I was so disconnected from the characters that I'd once loved that I didn't really care what happened. It was just one stupid mess after another anyway, and it got old fast. It took me forever to finish this book because I kept getting sidetracked by other things that were more interesting. I've never seen a book with so much action be so freaking dull. There was just no heart in it. And the ending was gut wrenching and then instead of standing by the gut wrenching, the author had to go and cop out at the last minute. So the only real emotional piece in the book wasn't complete. Overall, I'd say skip this series unless you're running low on reading material. The first two books are good, but the letdown of the third book just isn't worth it.

I cried! I laughed! I was so overwhelmed with this book and all of the different struggles Tristen and Cecilia went through. I was gripped and I finished it in a day! It was amazing I recommend it sooo much! I can't believe this was the last book! I'm still struggling with the ending! I loved this book!!!!

Warrior Witch is the epic conclusion to my favorite YA Fantasy series of all times and I am in pain. It hurts so much to have read the last book because when you finish a book, when you reach the end of your favorite series, a chapter of your life closes when you close the last book. And that reality just hit me. Hard. Why did it have to end?! Before this gets too long, I want to state that Warrior Witch IS the ending that this amazing series deserves. The ending that completely destroys you and then fixes you. The ending that your heart will never forget. Get ready to go back to Trollus and Trianon. To love with all your might Tristan, Cécile, Marc, Vincent and Victoria. To cheer them on as they fight for their lives and the freedom of the half-bloods and humans alike. You will gasp, cry, laugh, swoon, hate and feel every single emotion inside Warrior Witch's pages. But if you ask me to tell you which book from The Malediction Trilogy is my favorite, I fear that I won't be able to answer you. My heart loves them equally for separate reasons, but I will say this: Stolen Songbird is like a dream. A surreal hidden world that's frightening yet beautiful. Hidden Huntress is like waking up into a harsh and desperate reality. Enticing and unforgettable. But Warrior Witch goes beyond the unimaginable. It's the very reason why epic fantasy exists. Warrior Witch is undoubtedly one of the best series endings that I've ever read. I'm still stunned by everything I went through in these 400+ pages. There's not a single dull moment for it is action-packed and full of surprises in every corner. I lost count of all the oh my gods I promised to keep track because they all kept on coming one after the other. It is realistic, it is cruel, it is heart-breaking, but also inspiring, exciting and amazingly full of heart. After reading Hidden Huntress and before reading Warrior Witch, I didn't really know what to expect. My mind couldn't come up with good theories because the possibilities were endless and I knew that I wouldn't come even close to what you would come up with. And I was right. Nothing came close to what I thought would happen, so everything was a shock-full of both terrible and fascinating surprises. Sometimes, one must become the unimaginable... This tagline stands for everything and everyone. For Cécile. For Tristan. For Thibault. Even for Angoulême and Roland. I have no words for how impressed I am with the complexity of every character the author brought to life in her books. Some things I never would have guessed until a few hints were thrown in, and some, well, let's just say that stilled my heart once the truth came out. A lot of things happen in these 400+ pages. So much that I must once again say how impressed I am. Danielle L. Jensen gave us something epic, one big adventure full of many heart-stopping moments. This is the kind of book that demands to be read over and over again. The Malediction Trilogy IS the kind of series that MUST be read over and over again. And I will never tire of saying this. I'm super glad that I found The Malediction Trilogy back in 2014. I didn't know that Stolen Songbird would consume and introduce me to my favorite series. My first ugly crying was with Stolen Songbird and it ends with me ugly crying with Warrior Witch. In a twisted sense of humour, I think that was the perfect way for me to say goodbye to this amazing world. Long live Trollus!

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Warrior Witch by Danielle L. Jensen Book Three of The Malediction Trilogy Publisher: Angry Robot Publication Date: May 3, 2016 Rating: 1 star Source: eARC from the publisher Summary (from Goodreads): The thrilling conclusion to the breakout Malediction Trilogy by Goodreads Choice finalist Danielle L. Jensen. Cécile and Tristan have accomplished the impossible, but their greatest challenge remains: defeating the evil they have unleashed upon the world. As they scramble for a way to protect the people of the Isle and liberate the trolls from their tyrant king, Cécile and Tristan must battle those who’d see them dead. To win, they will risk everything. And everyone. But it might not be enough. Both Cécile and Tristan have debts, and they will be forced to pay them at a cost far greater than they had ever imagined. What I Liked: Initial reaction, upon finishing this book: I wish I had never started this series. I don't think I have EVER said that about a series before. This series was a complete downhill rollercoaster - from amazing (book one) to horrible (book two) to so terrible I want to block it from my memory (book three). I feel bad because I requested this book from the publisher! But at the same time... I'm well and truly hurt right now. My thanks to Angry Robot, but, ah, I'm sorry too? Like Stolen Songbird and Hidden Huntress, Warrior Witch is a Pili-Pushed recommendation! It's going to count for the month of March. To see the my Pili-Pushed reviews, click on the "Pili Pushed" tag (at the bottom of my blog). What I Did Not Like: Issues I had with this book: - The first half (maybe a little more) is boring as h*ll. Gosh I struggled with this book overall, but a significant part of this was due to how boring the first half was. I was either bemoaning how boring it was, or how much of a dumb*ss Cécile was (whoops?). Of course, boredom is subjective. - Cécile is actually a stupid and terrible person. Check out my Goodreads updates for this book, if you get a chance. You'll see that I struggled with her from start to finish of this book. I also hated her in Hidden Huntress - weird how I was just fine with her in Stolen Songbird. She wasn't that bad, at the time. I have so many problems with our heroine. The author writes her in a way that she wants to seem independent and tough and bad*ss, but it seems so forced. Cécile is constantly coming up with her own (dumb) plans, and she's constantly ignoring voices of reason (i.e. smarter people than her). Where does it lead her? Well, in one instance, a whoooole bunch of people die. In another instance, she endangers Tristan. In another, she selfishly decides to do XYZ and her human family is left wondering if she is even alive. Cécile placates her own self by saying that she is "going to save everyone" and she "wants to be doing stuff", basically she wants to be a bad*ss, but she is a danger to herself and everyone else. What makes me even MORE angry is that she's so self-righteous with it! Like she's actually saving th world - her, the human, against powerful trolls, fae, and magic she doesn't understand. Cécile is seventeen and a HUMAN. I think the author forgets this part A LOT. Read the rest of my review on my blog, The Eater of Books! - eaterofbooks DOT blogspot DOT com :)

This story was okay. I started out liking it. When I got to the last few chapters I did not like it much. Before i was going to give this book four stars and because I did not enjoy the last few chapters I gave this book three stars. I don't think I will be reading anything else by this author
