Book Review : Spirit of the Wood

Book Review : Spirit of the Wood

Is there anything better than catching up with old friends and learning more about the experiences that shaped them?

Reread Review : Mirror Sight

Reread Review : Mirror Sight

Reread Review : Green Rider

Reread Review : Green Rider

With the impending release of Winterlight, the seventh book in the Green Rider series, on the horizon, I wanted to reread and to rereview the rest of the series! It’s been years since I read the Green Rider series, and it was one of my first forays into the fantasy genre that wasn’t something classic and well-known, like The Lord of the Rings. The series became one of my favorites, […]
