Atlantis Lost - Atlantis Saga, #3

“Atlantis Lost” by T.A. Barron provides an imaginative journey that blends fact and myth, with a different look at some familiar figures. It took me a bit of time to get into the story so I think it would be better to read the first two boo...

The Secret Sky - A Novel of Forbidden Love in Afghanistan

Atia Abawi’s The Secret Sky is well worth the read. I really did love this book. I thought that parts of it were a little slow, but it is still worth the read. This would be a great book for High School kids as it gives a very good look at...

Fragile Spirits

First off I want to say that if you are going into this one looking for more story via Rose/Lenzi and Alden you won't find it. Although they are there as side characters this book is not about them. Also if it has been a while since you rea...

Rise - A Nightshade Novel, #5

Ms. Cremer keeps upping her game. I really enjoyed Rise and I have to say a lot more than Rift and Rift was good. Rise has more of a darker feel with more action and more romance. We get to know all about the nightshade world, described to...
