The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal

Like Wine & Chocolate for the Reader’s Palate

ISBN: 9781509215904

Trained as an elite warrior from childhood, the elven crown prince, Flintathriël, fights to end a war that began before he was born. With the aid of his betrothed, Sairalindë, a skilled mage and dragon rider in her own right, he must find the Book of Souls–an ancient and mysterious tome rumored to have belonged to the god Hath’Raal.

But when the missing book turns up in the hands of Mnuvae, the bastard daughter who believes the kingdom to be rightfully hers, Flintathriël and Sairalindë must defend each other–and their people–against a far greater force than they bargained for…


The Last Dragon Rider is a ruby of a book–the magic of firelight captured impossibly in stone. Roughly half a carat in weight (it is not a long read), the color is exquisite. The spark of romance and adventure sizzles within its depths.

An Instant Classic! One for Your Permanent Collection!

ISBN: 978-0765379306

We love books. In fact, we adore them. We don’t have time to read as many as we would like, so we only finish the ones we love. And we only review the ones we finish. As a result, we give out a lot of four- and five-star ratings, and we mean every one of them.

But every once in a while, a book comes along that truly stands out. A book (or series) that belongs with the likes of The Hobbit, or Ender’s Game, or every book Anne McCaffrey ever wrote. A book we insist on adding to our permanent collection in autographed hardcover.

Windwitch is just such a book. Continue reading “Windwitch by Susan Dennard”

Trapped in Silver by Emily Sowden

Trapped in Silver by Emily Sowden

This Debut Author Is One To Watch

ISBN: 978-0995636507

Here’s the thing about real people. They’re complicated. Okay, fine. We’re complicated. We can stand up to a pack of wolves with nothing but a knife at dusk and then shiver in a warm bed until dawn, terrified by a nightmare we don’t even remember. It doesn’t make any sense. Real people don’t always make sense. Emily Sowden gets that. She gets how real life works.

Take Ava. She might not be great at fighting, but she’s a survivor. She knows how to depend on herself. When her mother dies and her father starts disappearing, she holds the family farm together. So what if women aren’t allowed to conduct business in her misogynist, backwater town? She’ll dress herself as a young man and get the job done. That’s practical strength. That’s real strength.

Magnificent! Don’t Miss!

ISBN: 978-0765379283

Truthwitch is a new-adult high fantasy, set in a world of magic that will at first seem familiar: air witch, water witch, fire witch, earth witch… But the deeper you delve, the more unique and mesmerizing the world becomes.

The Dragon Dreamer by J.S. Burke

The Dragon Dreamer by J.S. Burke

A Gentle, Utopian Tale of Science and Magic

ISBN: 978-0996042505

This is a gentle story, appropriate for young readers. The lessons about friendship are magnificent. The science is well within the understanding of a young mind and at the same time flies above and beyond anything ordinarily found in a child’s fictional tale. A+ for the author on both counts.
