BOOK REVIEW:  StarPassage: Book Two, Heroes and Martyrs by Clark Rich Burbidge

Although I am clearly not in the target audience for Middle Grade literature, I do enjoy it!  I was excited when approached with the opportunity to read the StarPassage saga. The premise of this story is really entertaining!  There is a good combination of time travel, history, and faith, which made for a fun but meaningful tale.

BOOK REVIEW: THE GENESI CODE (THE GENESI SERIES BOOK 1) BY TRISTEN WILLIS

BOOK REVIEW: THE GENESI CODE (THE GENESI SERIES BOOK 1) BY TRISTEN WILLIS

Anyone who follows me on Bookstagram knows how happy it makes me to support authors and small businesses.  Tristen Willis happens to be both -- a debut author, as well as the owner of Burning Pages Candles (a small bookish candle company).  I was so thrilled when I received a message from her regarding reading and reviewing an e-ARC of her novel, The Genesi Code. So, I loved the synopsis of The Genesi Code!  The cover is also really pretty.  This is the first book in a duology, although, I think Willis could have easily lengthened this into a trilogy.  I did like it, but I had issues with it, too.

BOOK REVIEW: MASK OF SHADOWS (UNTITLED #1) BY LINSEY MILLER

BOOK REVIEW:  MASK OF SHADOWS (UNTITLED #1) BY LINSEY MILLER

The description and fierce cover art are what compelled me to read Mask of Shadows. I am drawn towards Young Adult, Fantasy far more often than not, so it was not a stretch to say that I would likely enjoy this book. This is a book that, for several reasons, though, I believe you need to read with an open mind.

BOOK REVIEW: THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD (THE CROSWALD SERIES) BY D.E. NIGHT

BOOK REVIEW: THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD (THE CROSWALD SERIES) BY D.E. NIGHT

The Crowns of Croswald is a whimsical tale (reminiscent of Cinderella, Harry Potter, and Percy Jackson) of a young girl on the path to self-discovery in a magical kingdom.  This is the debut novel from D.E. Night; the first book in a Middle Grade Fantasy series.  I am 32 years old, so I seldom read Middle Grade literature, but the synopsis and beautiful cover of this book instantly caught my attention.
