An Unscheduled Announcement

No, this isn’t an announcement about me. This is an announcement about my awesome friend Melody Jackson and her book, Dragon’s Hope, that’s coming out this year! It’s the third book in her dragon series, and she just revealed the cover and asked if we who follow her and who are in her writing group would share it and of course my answer was a resounding yes. This cover is absolutely GORGEOUS. Like, it got me to use the heart-eyes emoji for the first time level of gorgeous.

But of course I have to keep you in suspense, so here’s the tagline of the synopsis (the rest of the synopsis is apparently SPOILERSSSSSS), and a few short snippets. ;)

Tagline: How can you stand for something when you don’t remember who you are? Continue reading “An Unscheduled Announcement”

Book Review: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Book Review: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

This book looked pretty cool when I got it. I mean, it’s high fantasy. I had yet to read a high fantasy that I was particularly disappointed by. Plus, it’s a high fantasy with political intrigue and three countries going to war. Now where have I heard that before… I thought it could be a good research book for The Dark War Trilogy, considering the idea was somewhat the same, and I might glean some insight from it.

Skip forward to me, sitting in the dentist’s office Continue reading “Book Review: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes”

Book Review: Colors of Fear by Hannah Heath

Book Review: Colors of Fear by Hannah Heath

Okay, so it took me way too long to finally get around to reading any of Hannah’s books (I’ve been meaning to read Skies of Dripping Gold for ages. I’ve actually scheduled that one now, lol.), but she is one of my favorite bloggers and when her newest short story came out (February 2) I jumped on it, lol. I bought it, read it, and then was super bummed when it ended. But anyway, review…

This is a short story, so there’s not a whole lot to it as far as words go, but it’s a really rich story despite how brief it is. I was immediate invested Continue reading “Book Review: Colors of Fear by Hannah Heath”

Book Review: Echoes by Miranda Marie

Book Review: Echoes by Miranda Marie

This book is amazing. I’ll just start with that. This book is wonderful. The style, the characters, the plot… It’s just wonderful.

I had the privilege of reading excerpts of this book, since Miranda (Mandy) and I are in the same writing group (which in no way affects this review, because this book can more than stand on its own), and I immediately fell in love with the poetic writing style and intricate characters. Every excerpt just piqued my interest more, and by the time I was finally able to buy Echoes I was dying to read it. Continue reading “Book Review: Echoes by Miranda Marie”
