My Review of Omens of Fury


Omens of Fury (The Days of Ash and Fury) (Volume 1) - Sean Hinn

Omens of Fury by Sean Hinn is the first book in The Days of Ash and Fury series. We follow Lucan Thorne and other characters as we travel this world that is plagued with fires and quakes.


This is an interesting story. The characters are diverse, and the good vs evil trope rears its head. For me, this was a fun book, and has a Tolkien feel to it. I can’t wait for the next book!

My Review of Valley of Embers


Valley of Embers (The Landkist Saga Book 1) - Steven Kelliher

Valley of Embers by Steven Kelliher is the first book in The Landkist Saga. Kole is an Emberfolk. He doesn’t believe in the prophecy, and he is determined to prove that said prophecy is wrong.


I loved this story! There were new races which I had never heard of, and the pace was fast, for the most part. The middle of the book slowed, but picked up again towards the end. I also loved the author’s writing style. This was definitely an exciting adventure.

Yuletide Wolves

Winter Light

Yule Greetings!

Each of the eight seasonal festivals in the Wheel of the Year have a certain magic around them, a spirit that connects all living things to the cycles of the sun and moon. The Winter Solstice is especially powerful, as it marks the rebirth of the sun from the darkness of the longest night. I live far enough north where this a clear transition; it gets dark at four in the afternoon, and when the bitter cold descends, one feels mortal. Knowing that the sun will return is a wonderful thing.


I love the pristine silence of the longest night, like something finished and yet hopeful. It can feel daunting, a Dark Night of the Soul when the darkness is so all-encompassing it seems there was never light and never will be. This is a tricky thing about transformation. It’s also where the magic happens.

So I couldn’t…

My Review of The Green Ember


The Green Ember - S.D. Smith

The Green Ember by S.D. Smith is the first installment of The Green Ember series. Heather and Picket are brother and sister living a normal life until their home is attacked and their dad, mom, and little brother go missing. Not knowing if their family is alive, Heather and Picket find themselves rescued by the unlikeliest of rabbits.


This is a wonderful story of family, friends, and determination. I loved the characters, but who doesn’t love rabbits?! This story reminded of the old stories of talking animals such as Redwall by Brian Jacques and Watership Down by Richard Adams. I can see this becoming a beloved classic for the ages.


I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure and talking animals!

My Review of The Boy Who Painted the World


The Boy Who Painted the World - Melody J. Bremen

The Boy Who Painted the World by Melody J. Bremen is the story of a 10 year old homeless boy, Indigo, who loves to paint and wishes to one day be a famous painter.


This is an incredible story of loss, love, determination, and strength. I felt Indigo’s emotions throughout the story. I watched as he grew and became more and more determined to be the painter he always wanted to be. This is a great story for children 9-12, or like me, just a kid at heart.

Oldies vs. Newbies: Fantasy Edition

by Skyler Boudreau

Like all art forms, fantasy is a genre that has evolved over time. From classic epics like Beowulf or The Odyssey to modern favorites such as the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling or Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. The fantasy genre’s evolution illustrates the changing tastes…
