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

This lovely edition contains two of the loveliest fairy tales from my childhood. First of them – “The wild swans” tells us a story of bewitched princes and their younger sister who tries to save them. I don’t know if it’s just this edition, or if I used to read a little bit different version, but there are few things that were not exactly as I remembered them. Still, the essence of the story is the same and it is a lovely tale about faith, devotion, and determination. The little girl is willing to do anything to save her brothers Continue reading “Magical birds and fairy tales”

Two more stories by the creative duo

It’s about time I wrote this review. I’ve been putting it off for too long now and these authors don’t deserve that kind of treatment. True, these stories weren’t my favorite, but they still fit fantastically to the whole world and are definitely worth reading if you want to see the whole picture.

This story was a bit strange at the beginning – you’ve got a prolog following Ferran’s past and when the prolog’s over, the story immediately switches to another character, Riffolk and stays with him. He’s not one of the warriors, it’s more like he’s a witness to the events. It was rather interesting to see the main characters from a different point of view.

Are you up for a little scare?

If you’re in a mood for a short and creepy reads I’ve got just the thing! Two 16-page reads, I’d say perfect for a fast read before sleep, but I don’t think I’d recommend these two as a bed-reads ;). Unless you want some nightmares to follow.

A couple travels to China during Ghost festival. It seems like a harmless holiday for them, but townspeople take things seriously and for a reason. It doesn’t take long for Ray and Lara to get into troubles. Continue reading “Are you up for a little scare?”

Faith and MoonlightFaith and Moonlight (Faith and Moonlight #1) by Mark Gelineau, Joe King

After their orphanage was destroyed Kay and Roan have one chance to stay off the streets and find a way to better life. They swear to it together. Nothing will set them apart. That’s why Kay needs to do whatever she can to reach for her inner power before the time is up. She has to do this to let Roan become what he was apparently born to be.

This is the third set of the stories I’ve read from this universe and for now – my favorite. It was quite refreshing to slow down a bit after “Rend the Dark” – that book is pretty much fight after fight and by the end of it I rather had enough. Continue reading “What will you do to get in?”
