I’m always looking for LGBTQ stories in fantasy fiction, and NineStar Press are killing it recently (see my review of Daughter of the Sun), so when I saw Undertow, a paranormal fantasy novella, pop up on NetGalley I was intrigued. They were kind enough to send me a copy of the first novella, Darkling, too, as the series requires the books to be read in order to understand what is going on!
This book is just delightful! If you like high fantasy, sweet f/f romance, gods learning to embrace their flaws, or just a really good road trip, then this is a must read!
Another non-fiction read today! I jumped at the chance to review Harmony Nice’s Wicca, as I’m so interested in witchcraft – both the history of witches and the application of it in today’s world. This book is a beginner’s guide to Wicca, aimed firmly at the teen crowd, but it’s got a lot of good stuff in it!
If you’re looking for bite-size, fairy-tale feel fantasies with awesome girls in the lead, then this short story anthology should be right up your street!
With the days getting wintry and gloomy, I’ve been turning more and more to comfort reads, so I was excited to get my hands on The Duke of Kisses on NetGalley. This is a very sweet and well-written romance!
I am loving the current push in YA fantasy for settings outside the usual medieval-England-alike, and one of the books I’ve been most excited for has been Empress of All Seasons, which combines Japanese-inspired mythology with a girls-only survival contest!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I absolutely fell in love with Victor Dixen’s Ascension, a book billed as ‘Love Island in space’, but which turned out to be a twisty, exciting thriller of a book with amazing characters (review here). The second book in the Phobos series, Distortion, was an equally amazing read which really upped the ante, and my review for that is here. I’m now eagerly awaiting the third book, and to get you all excited, I’m taking part in the blog tour for Distortion and bringing you the books that Victor himself would take with him on a one way trip to Mars!
