Review: The Dragon Songs Saga is a different take on an alternate world. Expertly crafted and action-packed, it was hard to put the book down. Lots of twists and unexpected turns to the plot; the characters and storyline could rival Game of Thrones. Read more
Review: While it is a lot of fun to get to know these facts about the characters, I wish that they had been given in a closer format to actual short stories. These feel more like encyclopedia entries than stories. I wanted a bit more "show" than "tell." Read more

Review: Reading this was like getting to know 3 new siblings. The books led me threw ups and downs, highs and lows, tears and joy. The plot is amazing through most of the books. Overall, the series is for ages 10 and up. In the Arinthian Line series, I rate 2 of the books 4/5, and the rest 5/5. I give Burden's Edge a 6/5! Totally epic! Read more
Review: I Loved the characters and ideas presented in this story. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. There is a little more jumping around than I like,but it wasn’t to bad. I would tell everyone to read these books because it is a very good adventure. All in all I loved it. Read more
Review: This book is very well written and very interesting. The plot moves along at a great pace so you are never bored. While I have read several fantasy books before, I am not a gamer but reading a book that reads like a game is interesting. I wasn't sure I would like it but it is great. Looking forward to the next one. Read more
Review: I gave up halfway into book 2. With all the 5 star reviews I expected more, it fell short. Main protagonist, Soren, at 20 years of age seemed like a 12 year old at times and character growth for anyone almost none at all. Only growth was during a self revelation, suddenly a little bit older and none the wiser. Not much world building either. Somewhat interesting, but I thought I already read the books most of the time, dont think I have tho. But my biggest issue was that most things happened wit... Read more
Review: One of the best fantasies I've read in a long time! Reminiscent of all my favorites like the wheel of time or the inheritance cycle, this book is fantasy joy that grabs you from the first page and never lets go for a second! Geared towards older young adults and beyond, this epic tale will thrill even the most cynical and jaded readers! I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book. Read more

Review: Great new book by Veronica Roth! The story was more about people than actions, which I really appreciated because Akos and Cyra are terrific––he's sweet and sympathetic yet strong and determined, and she's a feisty warrior learning to let people into her life. So good! The world-building is good and the action is strong, but this is definitely an emotion-heavy story. The interactions with the two main characters are what sell it. While there were certain things I could predict, there were some s... Read more
