At the beginning of this year I set a goal to read all of the Phoenix Fiction Writers’ books that I could get in paperback, by the end of the year. If I remember correctly that list was 25 books long, and so far I’ve read three off the list (as well as four PFW books that weren’t on my list, including a reread).

The worldbuilding in this book is wonderful. It’s been good in the other two Hope Ann books I’ve read, too, but I think it most comes through and Continue reading “Book Review: Shadowkeeper by Hope Ann”
