Indie Book Reviews
If you’ve been following my book reviews you know, or you will know soon, that I pretty much only read romance when I’m reading a book for fun. Everything else is educational/research for PTSD and helping anyone who stumbles across my blog or learning to perfect the art of writing and blogging so I can be more interesting to you, my reader.
I love romance, yes I know that’s not only typical but redundant. But, it’s true.
I’ve entered the fantasy genre and they’re not even holding me captive!
Well, lately I’ve been stepping outside my comfort zone. I’ve read two, TWO, fantasy books and I think I’ve found my new favorite, okay second favorite, genre! Keep reading to find out what I read and then click through and buy your own copy to read.
I loved the fact that Tan draws on fantasy and mythology that I was already familiar with in her story and that the tale itself is intriguing and spans several generations giving it a depth that I didn’t expect in a novella.
I’d recommend this book to anyone, of any age, who is looking for a sweet story of love and intrigue, but most especially the young adult crowd who love the genre. It was a delightful way to spend an afternoon.
Coexist is due to be released on March 31, 2016. I was given a pre-release copy of this book for purposes of review. My review is entirely my own.
It is a half-blood, and her story, that we follow in Dream Stalker. Someone is murdering half-bloods and Emma takes it upon herself to find out who before she is the next victim. The victims are found with no severe injuries, no apparent cause of death. She must find out how they are being killed, and why. Her journey takes her through the magical world she lives in and reveals secrets about her own life that she had never even guessed at. Ultimately it is the strength she never knew she had that saves not only herself but her friends as well.
This book is a riveting and fun read. The sequel, Barrow Fiend, will come out April 25 which means if you read it now you won’t have to wait for the next one like I have been so impatiently.
