Kingdom of Exiles is the first book in the Beast Charmer series, and it set up a beautiful world that I can't wait to explore in more books. The description of the world itself is enough to keep me coming back. Maxym M. Martineau knows how to make it feel like you're there exploring the cities and forests side by side with the characters.
I've seen William O'Connor's artwork everywhere, but I never found the time to sit down and pick up one of his art books. When I saw this book offered up on NetGalley, I knew I needed to read it. I've always been obsessed with Dragons, Faeries, and other creatures, so this was a book I knew I needed to pick up.
I was gifted this book by Nora Roberts herself as a "thank you" for putting together the #CopyPasteCrisList & helping bring all of the plagiarism by Cristiane Serruya to light. Needless to say, when I opened the package I cried tears of excitement and dived into Morrigan's Cross almost immediately. This is my very first Nora Roberts, and I can guarantee that it won't be my last.
I picked up this book as part of #IndieApril, and I was excited to give it a chance. The description sounded like something right up my alley, and I've been reading so many romances that I figured it was time to take a break and jump into a good fantasy. James Clyde & the Diamonds of Orchestra is a mid-grade novel that grabs you from the start.
