My Review of Kalifus Rising

Review:

Kalifus Rising: A Novel - Alane Adams

I received an Arc from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own. Kalifus Rising is the second installment of Legends of Orkney. I’d like to start out by stating that I have not read the first book, The Red Sun, but I feel as if Kalifus Rising can be read and have a pretty good idea of some of what happened in the first book, as this book touches on some of the events. Kalifus Rising follows the story of Sam Baron’s three best friends, Keely, Leo, and Howie, as they take on different quests to find what they need to help Sam and stop a war. This story is fast paced, high adventure, and full of action. I was impressed with Alane’s world building skills as the world of Orkney was opened up to me. I constantly found myself on the edge of my seat, hanging on for dear life amidst the action. The character development is incredible, as I wanted to wring some necks, hug others, and just plain scream at some of the characters. My only concern with this book is that it could have been better edited. There were several grammatical errors that gave me pause. Overall, I give Kalifus Rising four stars for the world building, character development, and the action.

My Review of The Blue Dragon’s War

Review:

The Blue Dragon's War: an epic fantasy story (Chronicles of Calibran) - Sean Newton, Alberto Bieri

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I read the first book in this series, and I loved it. I was a little disappointed in the editing of this book, however. There were words used mistakenly, such as, loose for lose, and similar errors. The story was great, and the characters were well fleshed out. There was quite a bit of fighting, which I love when it comes to fantasy stories. I will continue to read this series, because of the world and character building, but I hope the next installment is better edited.

My Review of The Changelings

Review:

The Changelings - Christina Soontornvat

I received The Changelings from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. The Changelings by Christina Soontornvat is a middle grade fantasy full of adventure and wonder. It follows Izzy’s search for her younger sister, Hen. Hen has wandered into the woods alone and it is up to Izzy to find her. Along the way, Izzy meets new friends willing to join in the search. It was a fast paced story with vivid characters. Perfect for tweens and teens, or anyone looking for a clean fantasy story.

My Review of The Gift of Sunderland

Review:

The Gift of Sunderland: An Australian Fantasy Adventure - Guy Atherfold, J.E. Thorold Rogers

I won The Gift of Sunderland on a book blog that I follow. All opinions are my own. The Gift of Sunderland by J.E. Rogers is a middle grade fantasy with lively characters that are depicted from some of Australia’s endangered species. It follows Waylond, Fergal, and other characters as they learn what friendship and family mean. It is a delightful story with wonderful illustrations.

My Review of Minotaur

Review:

Minotaur - Phillip W. Simpson

I won Minotaur in a giveaway on a book blog. All opinions are my own. The Minotaur by Phillip W. Simpson is a retelling of the tale of the Minotaur in Greek mythology, which has always been one of my favorite subjects. I went into this book not sure what to expect, but I surely didn’t expect such a superbly written tale. Phillip’s writing is exceptional, and the main character, Asterion, the Minotaur, was so full of emotions and life that I grew to care for this character in a way that I had never cared for a character in a book before. I felt as if I could feel his presence, as if I was in the story that Phillip swept me into. The writing, character development, and the way the story wrapped up makes this one of the best books that I have read in an extremely long time.
