Book Reivew for “Maebown (Weald Fae Journals #4)- Fantasy/Fiction

Loved it. Weald Fae Journals are all about modern day “fairies” (they prefer to be called Fae) and their interaction with humans. Specifically the O’Shea family. The final book! It was great. Much more battles and strategy, so if that isn’t your thing you may think it is a little boring in places. I actually like that stuff. The characters have held their own through the whole series. I still love the main character. A strong young woman, less that perfect, with a fierce loyalty to friends and family. I give it 5 stars. Great fantasy writing. Jr. High and up. No sexual content, mild swearing. I think there might have been a bit more of that in this last book.


Book Review for “The Janus Effect”- Fiction/Drama

I really liked “The Janus Effect.” I probably would have given it five stars, but the ending was a bit anti-climatic. Good story, the characters are likable and there is plenty of suspense. The writing style is easy to read and flows well. I will be reading more by this author. 4 stars from me. For high school age and up.

Book Review for “Warwick”- Historical Fiction

I was given a copy of “Warwick” by the author, Tony Riches, in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this version. I have read several stories about the other players in the Wars of the Roses and this is the first time I have heard his story. Great historical content. A good representation of the politics of the Royal Courts. A Good read. I give it 4 stars and can recommend to European History lovers.

Book Review for “Dragon Slayer: Beginning” -Christian Fantasy

I was given a copy of “Dragon Slayer: Beginnings” by the author, Carey Green, in exchange for an honest review. Wow, loved it! Another great Christian author. Now I can’t wait for the next one! A wonderful story of heartbreak, sorrow, hope! Good writing, good character development and an inspirational story. Good for audiences of Jr High age and up. I give it a solid 5 stars. Well done.

Book Review for “Prophetic Guide to the End Times” – Christian Non Fiction

I love Derek Prince to begin with and have read several of his books. I had to read this one for a college class and I can’t begin to say how grateful I am that I read it. We can all agree that things are looking shaky these days, and this book gives us hope for facing the future. God has a plan and as always His plan for His children in an expected (good) end. I recommend for all Christians. I give it 5 stars.

Book Review for “Planet Bound”- Science Fiction

I was given a copy of “Planet Bound” by the author, A. Marie Dinsmore, in exchange for an honest review. I liked the book. I would have liked the story better if the characters were a little more rounded. Also we are introduced to so many that have little or no part to play other than showing that they feel rejected, which is a common theme in this book. Potential for a good story. The storyline itself is interesting. Human kind is on a quest to find habitable planets. Tough female lead. I liked it. I give it three stars. High School age and up. Some language.

Book Review for “Reached”- YA Fantasy/Dystopian

Book three in the Matched trilogy was a wonderful ending to a great story. I cried so much in these three books! Not all due to sad stories, but much to the heroics, the friendships, and the love. This series explores so many human emotions and characteristics, some good and some bad. I highly recommend these. Great for Jr. High and up, though I am not sure that younger readers will understand it all. A great read! I give it 5 plus stars.
