Welcome to the world of imagination!

Today I’ve got for you four stories that made me switch to the child mode :). There are magical, colorful, full of fantastic creatures and have the strong good vs evil factor. Sounds good, right? Well, let’s get to details.

One small warning – since I’ll be writing about the whole series, each next story might start with a spoiler for the previous book. I’ll try to avoid them, but it will be hard.

First of all, I love the covers, you can already see it’s going to be a fantastic journey for children. Just look at them:

Elora of Stone Into Coraira Teagan of Tomorrow Second Twin

Author: Jaime Lee Mann

I received these book from the publisher via NetGelley in exchange for an honest review.

I admit I waited way too long to read these stories, even though I had the first three on my kindle for a long time. When the “Second Twin” came out I decided I finally need to read them and here we are.

Sometimes it’s not easy to switch to the kid-mode. Some of the books simply take you int the story and you’ve got nothing to say about it, but in this case, I had to “manually” change my way of thinking. It wasn’t easy because even though these stories are magical they also have this cruel darkness lurking about, ready to grab the unsuspecting reader.

Rain on me

Oddly normal vol1 Oddly Normal Vol. 1 (Oddly Normal issues #1-5) by Otis Frampton

My rating: star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-half-full-iconstar-empty-icon

Goodreads | Amazon US | Amazon UK

This is a fun story directed mostly to younger readers, but it’s just as fun to read this as an adult.

Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for. Young Oddly was so angry at her life, that in the day of her birthday she wished for her parents to disappear. Unfortunately, her wish came true and now she has no choice but to go with her gram to fantasy world called Fignation. There everything is possible: monsters and creatures of various kinds are walking the streets, magic is everywhere, and a school Bug is Oddly’s new transport.

Sounds fun, right? It seems that our green haired half witch who hates rain would find her place in a place like this. See for yourself if that’s the case. Continue reading “Rain on me”

Dreaming reality

Poet angersonPoet Anderson by Tom DeLonge, Ben Kull, Mike Kennedy, Djet

My rating: star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-icon

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads blurb:

The prequel adventure chronicles young Jonas Anderson’s first foray into The Dream World, where he discovers his destiny to become Poet Anderson, a guardian Dream Walker who protects innocents while they sleep from the horrors their own dreams could pose in the Waking World.

This kind of prequels leaves you wanting more. This short story shows the beginning of Poet Anderson. How was he awakened, who is his main adversary and how the dream world looks like.

The graphic is amazing. The dream world looks impressive and quite imaginative. A science-fiction like city filled with people and monsters, where only some laws of physics apply. Continue reading “Dreaming reality”
