Wow! Just wow! I just finished reading a fantasy novel called Wyndano’s Cloak by A.R. Silverberry and let me tell you what: I LOVED IT! I do not think I can type fast enough for all of the excitement I have over this story and I don’t think I have enough words to describe how much I enjoyed it. But let me go ahead and try! 😀
A.R. Silverberry is a born story-teller, this much is true. But he is also a fabulous character craftsman, scenery setter, descriptionist, and a master wordsmith! (I know “descriptionist” is not a word, but it is MY word. So deal.)
We start the story with a wayward princess named Jen who lives in Aerdem with her mother and father, the King and Queen, and her brother, Dash the prince (who is quite Dashing–if I may say so myself.) Jen came from the Plain World where she had lived most of her life with an old woman named Nell before being reunited with her rightful–and very royal–family here in Aerdem. Aerdem is a beautiful world full of colors beyond the imagination, magical wonders, and strange creatures. A.R. Silverberry paints vivid and realistic pictures for the reader that make you actually feel you are there right there alongside the characters. But there is also a dark evil that is penetrating the land. And along with many other lovable and–quite rightly–hate-able characters, Jen makes her journey through different worlds to find the key to saving her family, fighting off the evil, and setting things right in Aerdem. Will she ever be able to overcome her fear and seek the help of Wyndano’s Cloak? Throughout her story, Jen may overcome many obstacles–inner and outer–but can she find her true inner-self? Can she master the mystical Wyndano’s Cloak?
You HAVE to read this book to find out. And trust me, you will not be disappointed. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good long fantasy. I actually would recommend this book to anyone, because it is that good.
I give WYNDANO’S CLOAK by A.R. Silverberry a magical, mystical, and magnificent 5 stars! Please grab yourself a copy today. Here is where it is available.
WAIT! There is more! I had the pleasure of interviewing the author of Wyndano’s Cloak. Please go here to check out A.R. Silverberry’s awesome interview!
Halloooo! How is this November weather treating everyone? It was the first night of a deep FREEZE last night for my town and mind you I live in the desert so we don’t see too many of these. BRRRRR! So I’m all snuggledy-wuggledy in warm clothes and blankets today. And what is my favorite thing to do when it is cold outside? Yup. You guessed it. READ! And now I will be reviewing a fantastic book I just devoured.
I just recently read a phenomenal book by a phenomenal author. It is called NINETY-FIVE PERCENT HUMAN and was written by Suzanna Williams (one of my favorites!) The story starts out on a rural farm from the perspective of a young man named Joe. With his parents no longer in the picture and his grandma and brother the only family he has left, Joe is stricken with the hard decision of sacrificing his youthful opportunities to fix up and work on the dilapidated farm or to sell it and let go of a history of life-long memories and hard work. Just as he struggles with these obstacles, a mysterious girl named Sarah shows up and Joe is forced to save her from drowning in the lake on his farm. And from that point on things only become more curious and exciting, from car chases to exploding fires, from action to drama. Will Joe be able to handle all of the trouble thrown his way since Sarah showed up? Will Joe ever find out Sarah’s true purpose?
This story is a science fiction thriller with a splash of romance. It leaves you on the edge of your seat and wanting more with every turn of the page. I loved it thoroughly and cannot wait until the sequel, Five percent alien comes out next year! Woo Hoo! This book is great for anyone of any age, although it sure has that youthful undertone that I love! I give NINETY-FIVE PERCENT HUMAN by Suzanna Williams a fantastic 5 STARS!
Get your copy here and snuggle in this winter with NINETY-FIVE PERCENT HUMAN!
Hello my fellow ghouls and ghosts! It is almost time for All Hallow’s Eve and I really wanted to get into the spirit of things…get it? Spirit? Bahahahaha! Ok back to the point. Because of my love of all things Halloween, I decided to pick up an appropriately haunting book to cuddle up with (more like huddle under the blankets with like a scaredy-cat,) and I chose a spooky anthology called CREEPIES: TWISTED TALES FROM BENEATH THE BED. Sounds awesome, right? YES! And freaky and gruesome and spooky and gross as hell at some points. This is a collection of short stories and poems that definitely lives up to it’s creepy title. This book totally freaked me out! I am a grown woman and felt like I was a kid again at the campfire, scared out of my mind from all of the ghost stories. So if you want zombies and grim reapers and ghosts oh my! This is the place to find just that! This must read gets a 5 stars from me! Go here to get yourself a copy of CREEPIES tonight and make sure to leave a light on!
