Duel of Fire by Jordan Rivet

Duel of Fire: Book Review

Duel of Fire by Jordan Rivet I really enjoyed this. It wasn’t anything spectacular- nothing super unique here, but it was fun all the same. If you’re looking for a light read with all your typical fantastical elements such as magic, princes, swords fighting, etc… check this one out. I’d...

The Falconer

The Falconer: Book Review

The Falconer by Elizabeth May My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was quite the pleasant surprise. Scotland? Steampunk? A dark heroine that slays? Why yes, thank you. Magic? Fae? Seelie/Unseelie Courts? Heck yes, I’ll take them all. We start off with a broken heroine– which is how I like...
