Advanced Review: The Hanged Man by K.D. Edwards

Mini Review: This series is so good, and this sequel to the first book is even better than I could have hoped for. The characters are just so great.

Advanced Review: Splintegrate by Deborah Teramis Christian

Mini Review: Incredibly dark world and story, and it felt like the darkness was trying to consume me. I enjoyed it.

Series: The Tarot Sequence by K.D. Edwards: The Last Sun, The Hanged Man

Mini Review: An amazing series with a broken but healing main character, an incredible cast, and a superb world. Everyone should read this.

Series: Foreigner by C.J. Cherryh: Precursor, Defender, Explorer, Destroyer, Pretender, Deliverer, Conspirator, Deceiver, Betrayer

Mini Review: Politics, aliens, danger, and a whole lot of travel. I love this series so much. Bren is the worlds biggest fanboi, and his anxiety-ridden ass does the impossible.

Series: The Winternight Trilogy: The Bear and the Nightingale, The Girl in the Tower, The Winter of the Witch

Mini Review: An interesting story of a young woman who doesn’t fit in, fighting against the system in place in historical, magical Rus.

Standalone: Sunshine by Robin McKinley

Mini Review: I cried at the end. Because that was the end of the story. Vampires, the evil kind, and a baker who just wants to live. Amazing.
