Book Review : Followed by Frost

Book Review : Followed by Frost

After reading Charlie N. Holmberg’s Spellmaker and Spellbreaker, I wanted to read another of the author’s works. After perusing more of her novels, I settled on Followed by Frost, which follows a teenaged girl named Smitha, who is cursed to be as “cold as her heart” due to her lack of care for anyone’s feelings but her own. Followed by Frost follows Smitha as she learns to deal with the […]

Book Review : Spellmaker

Book Review : Spellmaker

Spellmaker is the second entry in the Spellbreaker duology. Unfortunately, I found it to be not quite as magical as the first entry. Though I said in my review for Spellbreaker that author Charlie N. Holmberg’s romance is always perfect, with just the right balance, I sadly found that Spellmaker was the exception to this rule. Other developments in Spellmaker, mostly those that did not immediately pertain to Elsie, felt […]

As usual, I was enchanted by author Holmberg’s writing, even though Spellbreaker focuses […]

Book Review: Enchantress (Everman Saga #1)

Book Review: Enchantress (Everman Saga #1)

Imagine my excitement when I found that I could borrow Enchantress from Amazon for free! Unfortunately, you often get what you pay for. After slogging through this book for a couple of hours, I decided not to finish it. I am a firm believer in finishing what I start, so it is a testament to how boring I found Enchantress that I put the novel down.   I was unable to […]
