Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day! Today I am going to be reviewing Catling’s Bane by Diana Wallace Peach. This book, along with the other three in the series was sent to me by Diana Wallace Peach.

Book Name: Catling’s Bane 

Author: Diana Wallace Peach 

Genre:  YA, Fantasy, Paranormal 

Rating: 4.5/5 

Summary: I was introduced to a world which had flaws so similar to ours, it was hard for me to believe that it is fiction and not a story of some hidden country. 

In the city of Mur-Vallis live Farlanders who possess magical abilities connected to nature.  The Ellegeans establish an order where they are the ones who control society.  The Farlander’s magic was a threat to the Ellegeans and their system. Something had to be done. 

Every hanging day, the ones with magic who posed a threat to the Ellegeans were persecuted as a showcase of entertainment for the people. The Influencers’ Guild within the Ellegeans held control over the people’s emotions. The people had no control whatsoever over what they were feeling while their own family was being slaughtered. A mother could be grinning like a fool while her son was being put to death. 

All, except for Catling. Catling possessed a birthmark resembling a rose around her eye which allowed her to see and cut the threads of influence binding her and the people around her. Naturally, they want her dead. 


Ok. I’ll admit something. This book was not easy for me to read as it was very different from the books I read. But this book actually opened up a whole new horizon of books for me. The problems faced by the world are somewhat similar to our world. The people who posed a threat to the system were persecuted in this world. They were hushed up. Similar to our world, wouldn’t you say?

Thank you, Diana, for this opportunity! I really enjoyed reading it! ♥


Thank you for reading! Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you’ll! ♥ ♥

Also, so sorry for the long absence. My internet has not been stable here due to repairs and it won’t be stable until a few more days. Everything has been going on great. I managed to read 5 books before the 15th of April and I really hope to read at least 10 this month. Let’s see!

  1. Jess, I have been away and actually have been reading Diana’s books during my trip. Was thinking of writing a review when I get back, as well. You wrote such a wonderful summary and review! You are so full of talent, Jess. Hope you are having a wonderful week.

    1. Thank you so much! 💕💕
      I’d love to read your review! I’m sure it’ll be amazing! You’re such a good writer! 💕

      I hope you don’t mind me asking. But what is your name. It feels really odd just saying “Thank you” without a name… :-/

      1. Jess, I have never written a review and am always stumped for words when I try to write one. I will try in this case…love Diana’s books so much…Just hope I don’t come up too short and botch it somehow.

        I started the blog without telling anyone outside my immediate family. Just thinking about answering their questions burdens me so. I was wrestling with the notion of using a name. I think it’s about time. You can call me Maia. 🙂 Hope you have a beautiful day, Jess.

        1. Well, I hope you do write it! And I’m sure it’ll be great! 💕
          I can understnd what you mean. I told some of my friends about my blogand at first they were happy but over the months, they taunted me about it. Using the term “friends” for them is not entirely right.
          Hope you have a great day too, Maia! 💕

          1. Sorry to hear that your “friends” taunt you about it. Urghhh…some adults continue their ‘friendship’ along that line too and I have learned that it’s best to ignore them. You are doing amazing…just hope you remember that. 🙂
