Forbidden Moon (The Shadow Chronicles Book 3) by CR Robertson – Review by Beth McKitrick

­Forbidden MoonForbidden Moon by C.R. Robertson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was an excellent ending to a very good series. Even though it was bittersweet that it was coming to the end, it did a wonderful job at wrapping up loose ends and bringing the series to a satisfying conclusion (even though I definitely still wanted more of these characters). If you enjoy paranormal/fantasy romances, this is definitely a series for you. I would highly recommend it, you’ll fly through all three books all too quickly!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book continues the adventures of Tally and her Angel from book one. This book is definitely just as good as the first one! The characters are entertaining, as is the story, and the writing is easy and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this book to young fantasy lovers, and I would highly recommend reading the first book if you haven’t already!

Thief of Magic (Shadowed Minds Book 1) by Bree Moore – Review by Beth McKitrick

Thief of Magic (Shadowed Minds, #1)Thief of Magic by Bree Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. While above everything, it was a fantasy novel, it was so much more than that. It kind of felt like a mix of many popular genres: action, romance, fantasy, it has it all! This was definitely a unique take on the “magic powers” trope, which was entertaining on its own, but it also had great world and character building! I would definitely recommend it as a fun, easy read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As an avid fantasy reader, I tend to enjoy religious-themed fantasy novels as well. This was no exception. While it’s definitely written for middle-school aged readers, it’s done well enough to still be enjoyable as an adult. This is definitely the type of book that I would have LOVED when I was younger. Short, cute, and entertaining, I would definitely recommend it for younger fantasy readers!

The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price by C. L. Schneider – Review by Beth McKitrick

Magic-Price (The Crown of Stones, #1)Magic-Price by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is definitely a unique take on the old “magic user” trope. I liked the concept a lot, and it definitely checked the boxes for a good fantasy/adventure novel. However, the writing wasn’t necessarily my style. It’s not bad by any means, it’s just a bit much for someone who prefers fluffy reads – the whole thing gives me a sort of Game of Thrones vibe (which is a very popular series, just not my thing). The characters were complex and interesting and I thought it was a good story that started out a bit slow. I saw some people didn’t finish the book but I think if you push past the beginning, it gets more enjoyable. Definitely will be interested to see where the next book takes us!

Twilight’s Curse (Twilight Realm Series Book 1) by K. M. Wray – Review by Beth McKitrick

Twilight's CurseTwilight’s Curse by K.M. Wray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a classic YA fantasy novel – it has the character and world building, the magic, everything. It took me a few days to get into, but it is a very good page-turning, easy read once you do. There is a bit of time-jumping, but it is important for building a backstory, and it is done in a way that makes sense, it isn’t jarring or anything. Once you get past that part, the story develops beautifully. If you enjoy fantasy books, definitely give this one a shot!

Snowfall Serenade (Soul Connection #3) by Nikki Lynn Barrett – Review by Beth McKitrick

Snowfall Serenade (Soul Connection, #3)Snowfall Serenade by Nikki Lynn Barrett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The action continues with Scott and Zelda in book 3 of the series. If you thought the first two were full of twists and turns, buckle up because this book has you in for a bumpy ride! I would highly recommend reading the first two books before attempting this one, as there is a lot of backstory that will add to the emotion of this one. Overall a very good addition to the series, though definitely not for the emotionally faint of heart!

Sleeping Angel (Soul Connection, #2)Sleeping Angel by Nikki Lynn Barrett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you enjoyed book 1, you will definitely enjoy this one as well! It continues with our favorite characters from Peaceful Slumber, Scott and Zelda, but follows new characters this time around. While you don’t have to read the first book to follow this one, it definitely adds to it. Like the first, there are many twists and turns that you won’t see coming! It’s another enjoyable read that I would highly recommend!

Peaceful Slumber (Soul Connection, #1)Peaceful Slumber by Nikki Lynn Barrett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book uses a somewhat common theme – the ability to communicate with and see the dead. However, it spins this theme into an unexpected romance, and it works better than you would think! I enjoyed this easy read, especially how the two characters, Scott and Zelda, developed throughout the books. Both had satisfying stories and character growth, and there were twists that I definitely didn’t expect! There were times that I thought the book was over and questions were being left unanswered, but all the loose ends were tied up by the end! I would definitely recommend this book!

Cursed Luck (Broderick Coven Book 5) by AJ Renee – Review by Beth McKitrick

Cursed Luck (Broderick Coven, #5)Cursed Luck by A.J. Renee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 5, the most recent installment in this series, follows yet another Broderick sibling named Edward. Like his siblings, he is a witch who meets his soul mate. Like the other books, it’s an easy-to-read fantasy romance that is absolutely worth the read! With each book in this series, I continue to enjoy each and every story! I look forward to reading more of the Brodericks’ stories, both so I can get a whole new story with new characters, but also so I can see more of the characters who I have come to love. Highly recommend this entire series!
