Dragonquest by Anne McCaffrey
This is the sequel to Dragonflight. In this book the characters deal with the consequences of their actions in the first book. Not to spoil too much but in the first book some characters are brought 400 (ish?) years forward in time to the present. And then in this book it’s all about the conflict between the people who have been there the whole time and the people who were suddenly brought there and aren’t used to how life has changed.

Cybele’s Secret by Juliet Marillier

Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier
I enjoyed Wildwood Dancing so much that I went out looking for other books by the author and came across this one.
In this adult historical fantasy novel we follow Caitrin as she flees from an abusive situation and ends up as a scribe at Whistling Tor in Ireland where nothing is quite as it should be. There is a curse on the land and voices in the trees and mirrors that show you things that surely can’t be. And the chieftain himself is a strange man with secrets of his own. Oh and guess what the Normans are coming to take over. Continue reading “(8) Heart’s Blood // Bookish Blurb”

I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman
I really enjoyed this book.
In this book we follow three characters who are all lost in some way and are drawn together by a random accident. We then follow them throughout the course of one day as they each start to become less lost. I know that’s not a very good description of this book but it really was very good. Continue reading “(6) I Have Lost My Way // Bookish Blurb”

We follow Miles Singer, a mage turned soldier turned doctor who hides his magic in order to escape being bonded (essentially enslaved). However, the soldiers returning from the war seem to have something in them that turns them into murderers and only he can see it. Continue reading “(87) Witchmark // Bookish Blurb”
