##BookReview – THREATS OF SKY AND SEA by Jennifer Ellision #EpicFantasy #Elementals

#BookReview – THE BASTARD PRINCE by Patty Jansen #EpicFantasy

Being on holiday, I finally got around to some reading, and managed to finish a series I’ve really grown to love.

I’m writing this review as I get ready to GO ON HOLIDAY!!! Can’t wait, though it does mean I won’t be around to post much for the next few weeks – goodness knows, I’ve earned the break, even though I love both of my jobs. We are heading off to tour the Inner Hebrides, so […]
