This author seems to keep opting up in my media feeds lately with quite good recommendations. I believe I will have to definitely add something from this author to my #mustread list so as I may judge for myself. This looks like it could be a good start to an interesting series. Book Synopsis Embittered healer Blackthorn, wrongly condemned to death, is offered a lifeline by a mysterious stranger. In return, she must set aside her bid for vengeance against the man who destroyed all that she once loved. Not only that: for seven years she must agree to help … Continue reading Book Ideas: Dreamer’s Pool, by Juliet Marillier (2014).
For a second book to a series I found it to be quite intriguing. The author has continued and affirmed the storyline in the representation of the characters in a a new life. It did have quite a bit of overlap that in some novel can be quite tedious. But with the amount of interesting additions it seemed to add to the story rather make it drag. Again my favourite character is centred on Cornelia now reborn as Caela.

Fifteen-year-old Neryn has fled her home in the wake of its destruction, and is alone and penniless, hiding her extraordinary magical power. … Continue reading Book Suggestions: Shadowfell, by Juliet Marillier (2012).
A blast from the past in more ways than one! Hades Daughter is a fantasy fiction novel with a strong essence of mythological history interwoven within. I have very much enjoyed this novel finding it to be a definite page turner that keeps the reader ever awake late at night vowing that the current chapter shall be their last! The story revolves around what is known as “The Troy Game” and becomes the main focus of all essential characters. My favourites being Brutus and Cornelia. Brutus, the ambitious leader of the forsaken Trojans, looking for a home, is the King … Continue reading Book Review: Hades Daughter, by Sara Douglass (2002).
Ash and Quill, looks to be quite an exciting novel with a brilliant #bookcover. Think something definitely worth checking out. Book Synopsis The Great Library has long hoarded all the knowledge of the world, but a group of rebels has formed which continues to test its authority. Jess Brightwell and his friends have fled London, only to find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia, a city led by those who would rather burn books than submit. But Jess and the others hold powerful knowledge of a machine that would undermine the Library’s dominion.
