When I saw that Blood and Sand had a Roman setting, and features gladiators, I was all over it. I love stories set in Ancient Rome, and I was intrigued to read this take on the Spartacus legend. While the protagonist had a habit of not acting in her best interests, I found this a solid read. Read more

I enjoyed Alison Kemper’s Donna of the Dead, so when I saw Dead Over Heels on Netgalley, I was all over it. I was expecting a continuation of that story, but Dead Over Heels features different characters. It is set during the same time period, in the mountains of North Carolina. It’s not as campy as the previous book, but once again, I was hooked and couldn’t step away from the zombie apocalypse. Read more
I am beyond thrilled to be part of the 50th anniversary blog tour for Lloyd Alexander’s The Book of Three. My history with Prydain goes WAY back. The Book of Three was one of the first fantasy novels that I ever read, recommended to me by my uncle right after I finished the Narnia Chronicles. I loved the world of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, and I wanted to read more books in this wonderful new genre that I had just discovered. I was 11 or 12, and armed with a list of books from my uncle, I hit the library and checked out as many as I could find. The Book of Three and The White Mountains made the biggest impression on me, and I’ve been meaning to reread these treasures from my childhood for quite some time. The problem: I was afraid that they wouldn’t stand up to the test of time. The Book of Three is as old as I am, and I wondered if the years would be good to Taran and Eilonwy. Would they still seem relevant after all this time? You bet! I loved the re-read as much as when I read the book for the first time! Read more
