Not to mention enrolled in e-book library distribution and reaches OverDrive (world’s largest library ebook platform serving 20,000+ libraries), Baker & Taylor Axis 360, Gardners (Askews & Holts and Browns Books for Students), and Odilo. So whatever your preferred device you can rest assured you can find it.

Book review: Battle of the Bannockburn: The Saga of Thistles and Roses (The Warrior Queen Book 3) by Karen Gray

Karen Gray remains to date my favourite author, and that is not a position I offer to just anyone. I find Karen’s work to be the very essence of fantasy at its best. She brings to life 51fpuMb7leL._SX345_BO1,204,203,200_an enormous cast of characters, each with depth, backstory, and involved history.

Something has happened to the children of the newest colony, they are wild, aggressive, and no longer able to recognise or communicate with their parents. It seems their request for aid has gone unheard, fortunately it’s  a plight Arucken and Kerris cannot ignore.

I found this book to be an enjoyable read, it was written in a style Continue reading “Book Review: Tacenda by Christine Vann”
