My Review This was a strange, but intriguing book.  There were moments when it was like reading through an altered state, as if Cara isn’t always 100% in the present.  In places, there was prose that reminded me a bit of Sarah McCarry’s All Our Pretty Songs.  The lines of between reality and that which is imagined […]

My Review I truly love the Portland Storm books and I am never disappointed by them!  The stories are beautifully written, with all of the romance you could ever want right along with deep, emotionally intense issues.  And this one was so much more than romance,..  This is the story of a little girl who refused to […]

My Review Although I love the Valdemar saga, one of my favorite series that I go back to over and over again, I have to admit that this this installment of the Collegium Chronicles is my least favorite thus far.  I still love Mags, as well his friends Lena and Bear, but this particular book […]

My Review I am the Messenger is one of the more bizarre books I have ever read.  It is one of those books that caused me to question myself continually about why I was reading it, yet, at the same time, I couldn’t put it down.  Even now, having finished it, I am not sure […]

My Review I am a huge Mercedes Lackey fan and the entire Valdemar series is one of my all-time favorites to binge on every few years.  I love the story lines, the mystery, the intrigue, the characters.  I pick up one of these books and I am transported to a totally different world and I love […]

My Review Forgotten Things is the debut full-length novel by author Stephen Mullaney-Westwood.  It is a beautiful story woven between the reality that we all know and that inhabited by the creatures of lore that so many of us dismiss.  It is a coming-of-age story that centers around Adam and his friends Martin and Josh.  Adam has just moved […]

My Review While I have loved this series, I think that this one is my least favorite of the three.  I love Vanyel’s character as much as ever, even with all of his stubbornness.  For me it was Stefan’s character, as well as bits of his back story, that just didn’t do it for me. […]

Foundation

Foundation

My Review One of my favorite parts of the Valdemar epic saga are the Collegium so I love that there is now an entire series based on them!  Foundation is the first in a (so far) five book series set in the Collegium.  While Mags is the center of the series from the Herald Collegium, the […]
