Book Review: The Wolf’s Tooth

So far, the book seems to like it'll be a pretty easy and quick read. The writing style is reminiscent of Tolkien's The Hobbit with the writer taking a direct role in explaining to the reader what is going on, and making corrections as necessary. It also has that faint fairytale-esque feel to it. The prologue and first chapter are both relatively short, so I haven't seen much of the plot or character(s) just yet and can't really comment on them, but I am excited to continue this journey and see what happens!

Book Review: Her Crown of Fire

Book Review: The Coordinate

In this novel, branded a sci-fi by the author, but which I think of more as a YA Adventure/Da Vinci Code, two high schoolers--former best friends who sadly grew apart--are tasked with the history project of  researching the Secret Chamber of the White-Eyed Star God in the Copan Temple. As they navigate past missing webpages, a trip to Europe, time traveling, the President of the United States, and aliens, Emma and Logan find themselves unraveling the mystery of the stars. What will they find? And will they even survive their discovery?

Book Review: Legend of the Stone Keepers

In this YA Fantasy, J.L. Trepanier takes her readers on an amazing journey. The mission of her beautifully fleshed-out characters is to find the shattered pieces of the world's soul in order to fuse them back together and thus banish Nixa Somnia, the everlasting winter that freezes a being from the inside out. On this journey are the young, newly graduated Elaro, his classmate Cirra, his hero--and the Obsidian Warrior in the flesh--Plutollo, brothers Garenth and Ronin, the fiery Kindle, and the asthmatic scientist Atlas. Each have their role to play in obtaining the first piece of Terranum's soul, which lies with the humans. Will Elaro find the confidence within himself to lead his crew to the stone? Will the humans help the Agraxians save the world, or will they be too focused on their differences?

Book Review: Inevitable Ascension

Two friends, scorned by society more times than they can count team up to make a living hunting exotic animals and selling them on the blackmarket. Violina is our heroic protagonist, and Lux is the quirky and humorous sidekick--though I'm sure she'd claim equality.

Then, after everything seems to settle into place, finally, for the girls, they are thrust into a crazy, era-jumping adventure where the fate of the world is in their hands. Will they be able to avoid the butterfly effect of their time travel? Or do they need to make some changes for the betterment of their world?

Book Review: Clay Tongue

In this short novelette, a 10-year-old Jewish girl named Katie loves her grandfather. But his once story-telling brain is now all jumbled up after he suffered a stroke 2 years ago and now lives with aphasia, unable to talk or write. Even so, Katie is able to communicate with him just as well as before, as she herself is not much of a talker. In fact, her parents and other adults are constantly pushing her to talk more... When Katie catches a glimpse of her grandfather's half-finished story of his younger years and reads about his dalliance with a Golem just through their backyard in the woods, Katie decides to set off and see if it's true. Because if it is, the Golem will be able to grant her grandfather his voice back.
