Book Review: The Queen of Blood

I absolutely loved The Queen of Blood, an original fantasy about a world that relies on its queen to keep evil spirits at bay. When one queen loses her power, another must take over so that the world can stay safe. We follow Daleina mostly, a girl whose town was decimated by evil spirits and she showed signs of being able to hold power over them and thus became a trainee to possibly be selected to train as a future queen. A bit more complicated than that, but we also meet a warrior who has been cast out and does […]

Book Review: Chasing Power

Book Review: Chasing Power

Chasing Power is really different. So different, that at first, I really did not think I was going to finish it. The story starts off a little slow. Introducing Kayla and her powers.

Sarah Beth Durst has become one of my go to authors over the last few years, and Vessel is an extraordinary reason why. A high fantasy tale filled with memorable characters and a romance […]

Book Review: Enchanted Ivy

Book Review: Enchanted Ivy

  Sarah Beth Durst is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors of all time. And Enchanted Ivy is a fantastic example of why. Enchanted Ivy centers the tale around Lilly. Her one goal in life? To get into Princeton University. But where as most high schoolers have to pass SATs and admission applications, Lilly's situation is a bit different. She is a legacy. And as a legacy, she must undergo a special test to prove that she has what it takes. Sounds easy right? Think again. When your family is part of the "secret" part of Princeton University, nothing is […]
