The final instalment in the Tea Dragon series is just as heartwarming, inclusive, and beautiful as you’d expect!
Many Comic Cons past, I fell in love with the art of Fez Inkwright (@rosdottir on Twitter), who combines beautiful art with folklore and witchiness, and is also a hugely sweet person. I have several pieces of her art up around my house, and I also bought her self-published book, Folk Magic and Healing: An Unusual History of British Plants. So I was thrilled when the last time I saw her, she told me it had been picked up by a publisher for a swanky expanded, hardback release – and even more thrilled when Liminal 11 offered me the chance to review the new edition!
I love an echidna, so I was over the moon when New Frontier Publishing offered me this beautiful picture book featuring one of the spiny little fellows!
Though it may seem as though I tend more heavily to the fantastic or romantic in my reading tastes, I also very much enjoy a well-drawn historical novel that focuses on the history itself, so I’m excited to be helping to open the blog tour for Rachel Halliburton’s The Optickal Illusion!
I fell in love with the first book in this series, The Tea Dragon Society, so I was over the moon to be approved to read the sequel on NetGalley!
