Book review: Wings of Fire Graphic Novel 01

Not every dragonet wants a destiny… Clay has grown up under the mountain, chosen along with four other dragonets to fulfill a mysterious prophecy and end the war between the dragon tribes of Pyrrhia. He’s not so sure about the prophecy part, but Clay can’t imagine not living with the other dragonets; they’re his best…

Book Review: Beastly Bones

I feel this out of the Jackaby quartet is probably the funniest of the books (despite there being fire and death). Some girls work in shops or sell flowers. Some girls find husbands and play house. I assist a mad detective in investigating unexplained phenomena. My name is Abigail Rook, and this is what I…

Book review: Dawn of the Aspects

If you know anything about me, you know if I get sucked into a bookish/video game world that has a bunch of books that I will read and study every lick of Lore that exists.  World of Warcraft is one of those, and I think I scare my family sometimes with the fact that I…

Book Review: To Kill a Kingdom

I went into this with really high hopes.  It’s bad folks.  Really, really bad. I DNFed this on page 82.  Review may contain spoilers. Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of…

Book Review: Reindeer Boy

I have been a long-time fan of Cassandra Jean’s original stories, so when I saw my library (by some miracle) had gotten her latest story, I screamed, checked it out, and immediately read it that day. Quincy has the same dream every year on Christmas Eve – of finding a little boy holding a special…

Book Review: The Dragonet Prophecy

Series like Wings of Fire and Warriors really make me wonder about what people consider “violent” in children’s books. Clay and his friends have grown up under a mountain, secretly raised by the Talons of Peace to fulfill a mysterious prophecy. The five young dragons are destined to end the war that’s been raging between…

Book Review: Dragon’s Milk

I went into this book thinking it was Juvenile fiction and boy was I wrong. “You must go to the dragon. You must leave tonight.” Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows what she must do. She must search out the mother dragon whose draclings have just hatched and somehow get some of…

Book Review: Before the Storm

I knew this book was going to be climactic considering it’s the buildup to Battle for Azeroth, but this was definitely much more of a heavy-hitter than I expected.   THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE NOVEL. Taking place after the climactic events of Shadows of Argus, World of Warcraft: Before the Storm tells…

Book Review: Beneath the Sugar Sky

I don’t think I liked this as much as Down Among the Sticks and Bones, but I definitely liked it more than Every Heart a Doorway. Beneath the Sugar Sky returns to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. At this magical boarding school, children who have experienced fantasy adventures are reintroduced to the “real” world.  Sumi…
