To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles Book 2) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Lisa Helmick

To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles, #2)To be a Fae Guardian by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second story in the series. I have mixed feelings about this one. We follow Tatiana in her castle life and her personal one. Many times while reading I got the impression that much time had passed by then later in the book its only been six months since all that happened in book 1. Then her reign is always subject to scrutiny and she has family and personal struggles..not counting the major baddie. Just so tiring. I cant imagine being her. So much always going on.

Tatiana is becoming stronger and learning more about her abilities. She faces many issues that most adult people would struggle with. We do get a few more characters that add a bit to the story.

I was surprised and pleased with the story more than once. The world building is very well done too.

To be a Fae Queen (Realm Chronicles Book 1) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Lisa Helmick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is quite the ride! The story seems tedious at times with all the details. But it really draws the reader in. The characters are plentiful but I do have some favorites. I love Tatiana’s fiery spirit. She is young but really coming into her own as the story unfolds. She is a risk taker which can be good or bad. I am hoping she will continue to grow and become wiser.

While I enjoyed this story it did seem overlong. I enjoyed learning about Tatiana’s friendships but I can really see the youth in her at times. I look forward to the next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this steamy read. Caspian and Paisley were super likable characters, and extremely easy to follow. The way the author wrote the story from different POV gave a overall great understanding of the characters and kept those pages turning. I have read a few Marriage Agreement type romance plots and this one didn’t disappoint – definitely a must read for romance lovers.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A dreamy four-star read. This is number three in the Rebecca Steele series and its also the last story in the series and that is normally a bad thing, but this is done well so it’s a great end. I really enjoyed this story for the most part, but there were a couple of bits that didn’t sit right with me, the characters were amazing as always and the story great, just a little more putting together and this would be five stars.

Seed On Fire (Moore Family Saga , Book 1) by Michele Sims – Review by Shelly Kittell

Act I: Seed On Fire (Moore Family Saga, #1)Act I: Seed On Fire by Michele Sims
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an amazing book. From page 1, you are sucked into the magic and do not want to get out. The drama, mystery, suspense and adventure just keep you wanting to know what happens next. The story is well-written and flows from one section to the next with no glitches. The details make you feel like you are a fly on the wall participating. I found the characters to feel very three dimensional and totally relatable. They go through so many challenges yet they prove their love is strong. A very good book that I highly recommend.

ConQuest: The Art of Selling at Cons by Megan Mackie – Review by Shelly Kittell

ConQuest: The Art of Selling At ConsConQuest: The Art of Selling At Cons by Megan Mackie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great resource to help authors looking to get into selling at Conventions. The author does a wonderful job of walking through the process of what happens at Comic Cons. ‘She intersperses her personal stories throughout the book. The book has a realistic tale which is engaging; yet enjoyable because she engages the reader rather than making it dry. I am a reader rather than an author and I loved her tips on how to approach readers. The “no pressure” tips were spot on. I do wish more book people would realize these. Really great resource. I would definitely recommend it to writers out there.

Tally and the Angel : Book One IndiaTally and the Angel : Book One India by Eleanor Dixon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Tally and the Angel: Book One India” is an excellent book for young readers aged around seven and up.  It teaches the reader many life lessons. The reader learns inspirational lessons like healing after loss, love, believing in yourself and thinking of others before oneself. At the same time readers are learning about the culture and people of India. This book has elements of a good mystery and a good fantasy. The story flows well and grips the reader from page one.
