Snow Like Ashes, by Sara Raasch

$1.99 Kindle Sale! ($9.99)

It’s true. Sara Raasch started writing Snow Like Ashes when she was twelve. Want proof? We hunted down a video of the author holding up the first hand-written draft and took a screenshot. She reads a page from it in the video. We’re convinced. (Isn’t she adorable, btw?)

The decade she took to build this world shows in its magic. And in its politics. We found one reviewer who wrote down all eight territories, along with their rulers and their “conduits” (i.e. special magic items), just to keep them straight. To make things even more complicated, four of the conduits can only be wielded by men, and the other four by women.

(Wait. Is that determined by biological sex or by gender identification? Dunno. We haven’t read it yet. We just now bought it on sale. That’s how we find these deals. We’re actually shopping for ourselves and then telling you about it. Probably because we don’t have enough friends.)

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal

Like Wine & Chocolate for the Reader’s Palate

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…


REVIEW:

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.

Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Windwitch by Susan Dennard

An Instant Classic! One for Your Permanent Collection!

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.

Trapped in Silver by Emily Sowden

Trapped in Silver by Emily Sowden

This Debut Author Is One To Watch

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.
