Kingfisher

“Kingfisher” by Patricia A. McKillip reminds me of why I am always hesitant to start one of this author’s books. I am enchanted by the intricate prose and fascinated by her ability to weave commonplace occurrences with fantastical events an...

The Fog Diver - Fog Diver, #1

My twelve year old, Endy, read this book and this is what she says. I have been a fan of Terminator forever, thanks to my mom and dad. This book is a lot like that series. The world is covered in fog and these nanobyte things that were set...

The Wolf in the Attic

Paul Kearney does a good job writing this novel from the prospective of an adolescent girl named Anna Francis. I liked the overall style of writing but the plot was very relaxed. I did not feel a rush to find out what was going to happen or...

Wicked Sanctimony

This is Ms. ZygDeon's book debut, and it is unusual to say the least! Lots of details on angels and demons fill this world, and Ms. ZygDeon does an excellent job explaining the various characters in this world. Tight action and responses ar...

Return to the Isle of the Lost - The Descendants, #2

“Return to the Isle of the Lost” was such a great surprise. So many book two’s have issues, but I'm glad to say this one didn't. This at heart is an adventure book. The kids sneak out to return to the isle of the lost after getting letters...

Shining Sea

Supremacy - Supremacy, #1

The Hidden Oracle - The Trials of Apollo, #1

Alright, so I should have known that this was another spin off. Ya - shoot me. This is the first book in The Trials of Apollo series, but it doesn’t stand alone. So luckily my 11 year old had already read the other books by Rick Riordan and...

The Pages of the Mind - The Uncharted Realms, #1

I thought “The Pages of the Mind” was just a new book to a new series. After the horrible time I had with the 12 kingdoms I wanted to give this author another chance. But I found out that although this is a new series it’s a spin-off of you...

Valdemar: The Last Herald-Mage Trilogy

Daughter of Albion - A Novel of Ancient Britain

This book kept looking at me on the list so I decided to get it so it would leave me alone. And what I found was a take it or leave it book. The pacing of this story was pretty fast and it didn't take long to get to the end. There are no st...

Wishing Day - Book 1

King's Folly - The Kinsman Chronicles

The Mage Sister

When I first began the book, Jahx wasn't a character I cared for. Once we got to 352 years after the prologue and we see a different Jahx I couldn't help but love him. He was no longer insufferable but kind, gentle, patient and sexy. To his...

Golden - Heart of Dread, #3

Sing Down the Stars - The Celestine Series, #1

Sing Down the Stars starts out pretty well but then the MC skips back to the past. I really wished it would have started in the past telling us what had happened. The current way makes it feel choppy. The story is slower than most and kind...

Flamecaster - Shattered Realms, #1

If you are a fan of the prequel series you might dive right into Flamecaster and love this new spin off series from Chima. But for me this one lost a lot of luster once the climax of the beginning was over. The story fell flat and the chara...
