A Choice of Blades (The Blade Remnant #1) by D.N. Woodward

    With no knowledge of his true heritage, a young rancher, Leon Waldman, must forge a bold path for survival when he is tossed into a legendary world of powerful skin-changers and deadly creatures of myth! Leon grew up working hard on his grandfather’s ranch, dutifully sticking it out for the old man. But deep down he has dreams of his own and life just seems…off? Then there are all the odd changes that keep occurring, both to him personally and to the ranch in general. When Leon is eventually confronted with a shift in his reality, brought on by a testy bunch of mercenaries, all of those changes converge. For him and a few others with him, a door is forced open to a world of danger, steeped in mystery, a world beyond anything he could have ever imagined. Leon knows the mercenaries have plans that may or may not include him and the others, and the locals prove to be just as dangerous as they look. Come what may, he is determined to stick to a promise made to his grandfather, a promise to find a way home for him and those forced through the portal with him. To do so, he’s going to have to push himself in ways he never thought possible, and a simple bone handled Blade may be the key to either making or breaking that effort. But before he can make good on any promises, he must learn to navigate this new mythical land… Read More »A Choice of Blades (The Blade Remnant #1) by D.N. Woodward

      About the author Tell us your story? What made you start writing? I have always loved writing. Even in my early years, I would write everything from poems to short stories. I’m not much of a talker so I have always found it easier to express myself through writing. I’m also a big daydreamer and was always building all kinds of worlds and stories in my mind. So, my Adapted series is one of those stories I made up and would tell my children about the characters and their adventures. During a challenge one of my daughters had, which was to write a story within a month a little like NANOWRIMO but not as intense, I told her I would join her on the project and write a part of Adapted into a novel. It was only meant as an encouragement for her really, but once I started taking the novel seriously I couldn’t stop. It took me longer than a month when you take editing, rereading and all of the things that come after writing the first draft but, by the time I had completed the 3rd draft I knew I had to try to get it published somehow. Now I struggle a lot with getting the time to write but I’m super dedicated to writing more. I still have more from the Adapted series and a few other stories that I have started that need to be finished and put out for the public. If you could go… Read More »Elizabeth Caroline

      Shadow and Bone & Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

        Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee. Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart. My Review: I really enjoyed reading these books and I am waiting for my ordered third book to arrive! And I know that it will take a heck of a long time to get here, Narnia. I liked how the story started. The beginning held a lot of potential. I liked Mal´s and Alina´s easy relationship. I can perfectly picture the world that they lived in, all the scenery (I am probably imagining it all wrong, but I really can see it in my mind´s eye). Might be a side effect… Read More »Shadow and Bone & Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

        Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

          Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague? Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it? For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago. Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded. Wouldn’t you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing he was dying of ALS – or motor neurone disease – Mitch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final ‘class’: lessons in how to live. TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie’s lasting gift with the world. My review: This book was recommended to me and I have made a rule to myself to always position the books that are recommended to me at the top of my reading list. Of course on condition that I am able to get hold of the book. Before I started to read the book I checked it out on goodreads, it said the book is Non Fiction and Autobiography. I have only ever read one autobiography in my life and it was… Read More »Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

          Child of Tempus (The Gods’ Scion, #1) by Winnifred Tataw

            Rodrick is a prince of the ruling country of Diar. He has a face kissed by the Gods themselves, with deep blue eyes and long ruby-red hair. Speaking of Gods, he also happens to be the Acolyte of Time. Gifts and curses with this power give him control over aspects of time. And being a dragon-human hybrid has its amazing perks too. But since childhood, Rodrick has had a target on his back, and his insanely power-hungry father, Demon King Ryton, comes across as his closest but worst enemy. Throw in the workings of an alcoholic mother, a bipolar sister, a recovering addict brother, and an adopted little sister with magical powers, and you have the royal family of Diar.Things couldn’t get any worse, until he meets the beautiful Princess Arcelia—but Arcelia isn’t the main problem. Her and Rodrick are on now on the run from Rodrick’s father, Ryton. And with the looming risk of world destruction ahead of them, Rodrick is worried about more than college exams My review An arrogant Prince – check.A beautiful and brave Princess – check.Danger, powers, fighting – check, check, check. Only sometimes it feels like the prince and princess are not the main characters. Sometimes you’ll get lost in somebody else’s perspective and it takes a while to realize through whose eyes you are seeing the world. It takes a minute to realize the switch in perspectives – and there are many, many different perspectives in this book. It does, however, give a… Read More »Child of Tempus (The Gods’ Scion, #1) by Winnifred Tataw
