Continuing to catch up on my reading, I’m also catching up on my reviews. I recently shared my review for book #3 in the Messenger Chronicles: The Nightshade’s Touch, and mentioned that it grabbed me so completely I bought the next one as soon as I got off the aircraft where I’d been reading. Here […]

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

I am always drawn to read other author’s takes on elementals, hence this pick. “In a kingdom of Elementals, she thought she was ordinary. She was wrong.”   Here are my thoughts… Threats of Sky and Sea by Jennifer Ellision My rating: 5 of 5 stars 16-year-old Bree knows nothing beyond her simple life, helping […]

#BookReview – THE BASTARD PRINCE by Patty Jansen #EpicFantasy

Continuing my catch up on reviews, I find I’ve read quite a few books recently. This is the first in a trilogy I’ve been waiting a while to read, based on the great blurbs that thoroughly piqued my interest. Here’s how that panned out… The Bastard Prince by Patty Jansen “She has a dragon, and […]

#BookReview – THE MERCENARY: A WARREN PARISH STORY by Elicia Hyder #paranormal
