The SEER

Hello and welcome to my stop on

The Seer by Eva Shaw


Release Date:
 September 14, 2021

About The Book:

The award-winning author of over 100 books returns with a high-speed new mystery exploring New Orleans’ history of deception and domestic terrorism during World War II. Introducing: Eva Shaw and The Seer (Torch Flame, September 14, 2021). 

Historically accurate, The Seer is the culmination of extensive research into WWII in New Orleans. Shaw expertly combines meticulous research with a compulsive narrative that follows Thomas Ling, a Chinese-British scientist, and Beatrix Patterson, a magical psychic. Against his better judgment, Thomas agrees to be Beatrix’s bodyguard in return for, he hopes, psychic information that could stop the imminent bloodshed in his ancestral homeland of China. But can Beatrix really psychically find Nazi cells and saboteurs in New Orleans, a city of secrets? A perfect combination of heart-pounding mystery and extensive historical research, this captivating look into the Crescent City will have you on the edge of your seat as you become part of New Orleans history with the unlikely pair of psychic and scientist.

Can these two change the outcome of the war or will each, so focused on their own goals, cause even more harm with their deceptive mindsets?

Thank you to @evashawwriter for my gifted copy of her book The Seer and to @suzyapprovedbooktours for having me be a part of this tour!

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

Wow this was a fast moving high stakes book that had me hooked from start to finish,

I literally couldn’t put it down. An immersive read here that is high on intrigue. A dynamic historical fiction with characters that you can root for. 1942 America is adjusting to its entrance into WW2, still reeling from the surprise military strike by the Japanese. Prejudice against Asians runs deep within New Orléans. Everyone held their breath as the steady march of The Axis campaign to seize the world. The Crescent City braced its self for an attack just like Pearl Harbor.

When Chinese-English scientist Thomas Ling on a mission, ends up in the psychic, Beatrix Patterson office of Finder of Lost Things.

The people and the detailed atmospheric imagery of Nola is brought to life through the authors exceptional writing expertise. Heart ponding suspenseful and engaging, I feel in love with both MC’s. Beatrix and Thomas mesh wonderfully together as their friendship develops as the storyline unfolds.

This a must read, for those who seek suburb characterization and gripping WW2 fiction. Make sure you grab yourself a copy Today!

The Sisterhood of The Enchanted Forest

The Sisterhood of the Enchanted Forest
Sustenance, Wisdom, and Awakening in Finland’s Karelia
Naomi Moriyama William Doyle

What would happen if you built one of the world’s most advanced societies inside a forest—and strove to make women full partners in power?

After living for twenty-five years in New York, Naomi Moriyama moved with her husband and co-author William Doyle and their seven-year-old child to the vast forest of Finland’s Karelia, a mysterious region on the Russian border that helped inspire J.R. R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth fantasies.

She entered a life-altering zone of tranquility, peace, and beauty, the spiritual heart of the nation ranked as the happiest nation on Earth, with among the world’s most empowered women.

Finland is also the country with cleanest air and water and the best schools, a country where motherhood and fatherhood are championed by law, childhood is revered, schoolchildren are required to play outdoors multiple times a day, and trains contain mini-libraries and mini-playgrounds for children to enjoy.

It was here in the Karelian forest that Naomi found a culinary symphony of succulent wild edibles, herbs, berries, mushrooms and fish, all freshly plucked from the moss-carpeted forest and sparkling clear streams.

She also found something that changed her life—a tribe of invincible women who became her soul-sisters.

As an idyllic summer and fall gave way to a sub-Arctic winter of mind-bending darkness and cold, Naomi faced her fears and her future. Over the course of six unforgettable months with her family and her new “sisters”, she found her life transformed, and discovered the power that lay within her all along.

Then she tried to leave. But she kept coming back.

Come, take a journey deep into Europe’s most distant, magical wilderness, and join the sisterhood of the enchanted forest.

With two pieces about parenting in Finland out now with INSIDER, Naomi addresses the question posed by her book – what would happen if you built one of the world’s most advanced societies inside a forest – and strove to make women full partners in power?

After living for twenty-five years in New York, Naomi Moriyama moved with her husband and co-author William Doyle and their seven-year-old child to the vast forest of Finland’s Karelia, a mysterious region on the Russian border that helped inspire J.R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth fantasies.

There, Naomi found something that changed her life – the “Marthas,” a volunteer collective of Finnish women, taught Naomi how to forage for mushrooms and wild herbs, to meditate in steaming saunas, and to drink water straight from crystal clear forest streams. They laughed at the idea of skipping an outdoor event for poor weather, saying that in Finland there’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes. 

Included in this remarkable book about nature, community, and parenting are a myriad of recipes from Finland – Karelian pies, brown chanterelle cookies, lingonberry porridge, chilled blueberry soup, traditional pan-fried perch, and lingonberry-blueberry multigrain bread. I’ve included an example below my signature! 

Whether you pick up this book for its insight into traveling Karelia, its meditations on what parenting and gender equality can look like, or just for some delicious recipes, The Sisterhood of the Enchanted Forest offers a journey deep into Europe’s most distant, magical wilderness, and insight into a new way of living, one situated in harmony with nature and in support of gender equality.

SYNOPSES

Ireland 1652: In the desperate, final days of the English invasion of Ireland . . .

A fey young woman, Áine Callaghan, is the sole survivor of an attack by English marauders. When Irish soldier Niall O’Coneill discovers his own kin slaughtered in the same massacre, he vows to hunt down the men responsible. He takes Áine under his protection and together they reach the safety of an encampment held by the Irish forces in Tipperary.

Hardly a safe haven, the camp is rife with danger and intrigue. Áine is a stranger with the old stories stirring on her tongue and rumours follow her everywhere. The English cut off support to the brigade, and a traitor undermines the Irish cause, turning Niall from hunter to hunted.

When someone from Áine’s past arrives, her secrets boil to the surface—and she must slay her demons once and for all.

As the web of violence and treachery grows, Áine and Niall find solace in each other’s arms—but can their love survive long-buried secrets and the darkness of vengeance?

Trigger Warnings:

Violence, references to sexual/physical abuse.

REVIEW

Historical Note:

After the English Parliment’s New Model army prevailed during the first English civil war, and Charles Stewart is exiled, having slipped through undetected and fled to France. The brute force of the Cromwellian invasion descends on the tattered souls of Ireland. The long civil wars of Ireland had left its mark on the land and its people. Total conquest was on the horizon, The brave Irish Confederate rebels had been fighting guerrilla style warfare. Large parcels of land and homes had been confiscated by the English. Now with the dwindling of food sources and supplies the end was imminent. Ireland has suffered the slow but steady invasion of English redcoats on its soil along with betrayal within.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

Rebel’s Knot by Cryssa Bazos, is the third installment in Quest for Three Kingdoms Series. A moving thought provoking historical fiction, alternates between two points of view. Cryssa Bazos deftly weaves threads of historical fact and people, along with her compelling own characters, to create a mesmerizing tale.

We follow Niall O’Coneill, a Toraidhe, which is an Irish rebel, along with his trusted wolfhound Fiona. Niall having left Ross castle with dispatches, arrives at his uncles Mulrianne’s byre, to find it burned and his sister, Muairead taken by the English. The only survivor left is a young woman servant.

Áine Callaghan is a red haired dairy maid, who some might say favored the Fey. Gentle and sweet, with a tragic past, she work as a servant for the Mulrianne’s family. Until the unthinkable happens and she barely escapes from an English attack on the manor house where she works. Áine finds herself in the care of Niall O’Coneill, a brave Irish rebel.

Cryssa Bazos has created an engaging and memorable hero and heroine. Her uniquely descriptive prose, and her highly accomplished writing ensures that the reader is swept along in this captivating storyline. The book is vividly descriptive, placing me easily into the heart of this novel. I felt emotionally drawn to the flesh out three dimensional characters and I was completely invested in them.

Bazos’s seamless narration and wonderful atmospheric details will kept me immersed within the books pages. This was a superb historical fiction, with just the right amount of romance. Meticulously researched the authors creative ability shines through, in this stunning book. The strength and struggles of Áine and Niall along with the Irish people are stunningly depicted. A fast paced book that I captivated from start to finish, and the lovely ending was everything I hoped it would be.

I highly recommend this book to my friends and family along with the other books in the Quest for Three Kingdoms Series.

Thanks for joining me today on my stop for the Blog Tour for

#skinofthesea #TBRBeyondTours #natashabowen

Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing date: November 2nd, 2021

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Indigo | IndieBound

Synopsis:

An unforgettable fantasy debut inspired by West African mythology, this is Children of Blood and Bone meets The Little Mermaid, in which a mermaid takes on the gods themselves.

A way to survive.
A way to serve.
A way to save.

Simi prayed to the gods, once. Now she serves them as Mami Wata–a mermaid–collecting the souls of those who die at sea and blessing their journeys back home.

But when a living boy is thrown overboard, Simi does the unthinkable–she saves his life, going against an ancient decree. And punishment awaits those who dare to defy it.

To protect the other Mami Wata, Simi must journey to the Supreme Creator to make amends. But all is not as it seems. There’s the boy she rescued, who knows more than he should. And something is shadowing Simi, something that would rather see her fail. . . .

Danger lurks at every turn, and as Simi draws closer, she must brave vengeful gods, treacherous lands, and legendary creatures. Because if she doesn’t, then she risks not only the fate of all Mami Wata, but also the world as she knows it.

REVIEW

From the desk of Gwendalyn Anderson

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Please make sure to read TW.

Content Warning:

Violence, enslavement, death, suicide, abuse, sexual harassment, severe injuries.

I went into this blind, I chose not to read the synopsis or really glanced to hard at the cover. I didn’t want to be influenced by either!

Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen is beautiful compelling story. We follow Simidele {Simi} who vaguely remembers the girl she once was. Now she is Mami Wata, is a mermaid, tasked by orisa Mother, Yemoja to collect and lead the souls of the dead West Africans people who have been thrown over from slave ships. In a series of events she does the unthinkable and has to to seek atonement for her rash actions.

A richly immersive fantasy tale that explores the West Africans who were enslaved by the Portuguese. Steeped in WA mythology and folklore, set around the mid fifteen century. When slavers set about capturing unsuspecting West Africans for common commodities. The narration is seamless and poetic. The author pulls no punches, and some might have trouble reading it. For me it was a perfect example historical fantasy. A book that so many readers will find drawn to be able to relate with the books representation.

A book that is infused with so much suffering, but also with friendships and ultimately hope and curage. Chocked full of mystical creatures and deities. The pace was brisk along with nonstop action. Bowen does an incredible job giving the reader background to Simi’s character and I was never confused. A bold and courageous protagonist that all can root for.

If you read just one YA Fantasy make it this one! You will not be disappointed!

Today I Have A Gorgeously Dark Historical Gothic

Parting the Veil by Paulette Kennedy

PARTING THE VEIL BY PAULETTE KENNEDY

Publication Date: November 1, 2021
Lake Union Publishing

Genre: Historical/Gothic/Romance

Some houses hold secrets that are meant to be kept forever…

Parting the Veil, a suspenseful gothic romance about a scandalous Gilded Age heiress who meets a charming British lord with a tragic past, only to discover dark family secrets hidden within his haunted manor, is coming to you from Lake Union Publishing this fall.

When Eliza Sullivan inherits an estate from a recently deceased aunt, she leaves behind a grievous and guilt-ridden past in New Orleans for rural England and a fresh start. Eliza arrives at her new home and finds herself falling for the mysterious lord of Havenwood, Malcolm Winfield. Despite the sinister rumors that surround him, Eliza is drawn to his melancholy charm and his crumbling, once-beautiful mansion. With enough love, she thinks, both man and manor could be repaired.

Not long into their marriage, Eliza fears that she should have listened to the locals. There’s something terribly wrong at Havenwood Manor: Forbidden rooms. Ghostly whispers in the shadows. Strangely guarded servants. And Malcolm’s threatening moods, as changeable as night and day.

As Eliza delves deeper into Malcolm’s troubling history, the dark secrets she unearths gain a frightening power. Has she married a man or a monster? For Eliza, uncovering the truth will either save her or destroy her.

If you enjoy the work of Kate Morton, Sarah Waters, and Susanna Kearsley, you’ll love following along with Eliza as she communes with restless spirits and uncovers the mysteries of Havenwood Manor, one gaslit room at a time.

Parting The Veil

★★★★

There are books and then there are books. This is one of those books that stays with you long after you read the last line.

Parting The Veil is an rewarding historical gothic. Paulette Kennedy’s lush prose and brilliant storyteller makes this book a favorite this year.

Full of plot twist and dark ominous historical details that keep you invested within in its eerie pages. We follow half-sisters who have recently arrived in Hampshire, England from New Orléans, Louisiana. Eliza Sullivan has inherited a manor house and sizable fortune from her great-aunt, Lady Theodora Sherbourne. Certain stipulations to the will include the fact that she must marry within a certain amount of time or she will forfeits her Aunts inheritance. Having avoided marriage in the past she now must look for the one thing she did not want …a husband.

The neighboring estate. Havenwood, owned by Malcolm Winfield is known for its dark family secrets. Located at the crossroads Sherborne house, Havenwood and it’s dark mysterious owner have already piqued Eliza’s interest.

The story starts off intentionally slow, in an ambiguous way as the author sets the perfect tone. Now this is the genius of Kennedy, who deliberately gives you each piece of the puzzle, chapter by chapter. The hauntingly sinister tale of comes together masterfully. Full of deception and romance, along with dramatic family dynamics, kept me on the edge of my seat. The malevolent Havenwood, is a character in its own right, where nothing is what it seems. You will find the characters well developed and fleshed out completely. I especially loved both of the sisters and their bond was well depicted. A riveting tale that you just have to read to know what feeling I’m getting at. It sucks you in and keeps you hungry for more. A slightly modernized dialogue will register with contemporary readers, which helps broaden the scope of the book, along with wonderful queer depiction!

I inhaled this book in one setting, staying up late at night to finish. Steeped with gothic nuances and ghost this was deliciously intense and chilling!

The Reckless Kind by Carly Heath

Genre: Young Adult Historical Fiction
Publishing date: November 2nd, 2021

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Indigo | IndieBound

A genre-defying debut, this queer historical YA centers a wild and reckless trio who fly in the face of small town tradition—full of compassion, love, and determination to live the lives of their choosing.

It’s Norway 1904, and Asta Hedstrom doesn’t want to marry her odious betrothed, Nils—even though a domestic future is all her mother believes she’s suited for, on account of her single-sided deafness, unconventional appearance, and even stranger notions. Asta would rather spend her life performing in the village theater with her friends and fellow outcasts: her best friend Gunnar Fuglestad and his secret boyfriend, wealthy Erlend Fournier.

But the situation takes a dire turn when Nils lashes out in jealousy—gravely injuring Gunnar. Shunning marriage for good, Asta moves with Gunnar and Erlend to their secluded cabin above town. With few ties left with their families, they have one shot at gaining enough kroner to secure their way of life: win the village’s annual horse race.

REVIEW

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

An excellent YA historical fiction Read, set in Norway 1904. Three teens struggle the constraints that society has placed on them. Bold and daring they seek to forage their on path in a era and place that frowns on anyone who steps outside of strict conformity. Eighteen year old Asta Hedstrom should be happy with her lot in life, having been born with the genetic disease, Waardenburg syndrome.

She is pledged to marry Nils, who is her extremely unpleasant betrothed. He is willing to overlook her shortcomings, but she can’t seem to conform to this marriage or any marriage at that. After Nils does an unforgivable act against her beloved friend Gunner. Asta swears off the arrangement with Nils and moves in with her outcasted best friend.

Erlend is forbidden to love and throws caution to the wind to be with the one that calls to his very soul Gunnar. They from a formidable bond of friendship, making this triad one to cheer for.

This debt was phenomenal, with smooth and effortless narration the author catapults you into an immersive world. Heartfelt characterization and spot on authentic language made this book one of my all time favorite books. A tale of forbidden love and a wonderful found family, that I couldn’t get enough of.

An added bonus for the reader is that this lovely book offers Norwegian Rosemaling Style art at the opening page of each chapter.

Carly Heath is one author to watch out for !

Dragon by Midnight by Karen Kincy

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing date: September 1st, 2021

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository

Synopsis

When the clock strikes midnight, Cinderella turns into a dragon.

Her dream twisted into a nightmare, she flees from the ball into the wilderness. Cinderella’s only hope? Sikandar, a sorcerer banished from a faraway land, who promises to break the dragon curse. Even at her most beastly, he finds beauty within her. But he’s hiding his own dark past, and saving Cinderella might be his last chance of redemption.

Together, Cinderella and Sikandar must untangle dangerous secrets and deadly magic before happily ever after is forever out of reach.

Dragon by Midnight features sweet romance, twists on fairytales, an obsession with breakfast, and a cinnamon roll hero who’s too good to be bad.

REVIEW

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

“Losing your past can’t stop you from finding your future.”

Did Some One Say Curses and Dragon?

What happens when you take the Cinderella storyline and reinvent in such away that it becomes even more fascinating. This book has a very inventive twist that not only intrigued me but I found refreshing and delightful. The wronged Cinderella doesn’t just have her thieving step-mama and her cruel stepsisters to deal with, now she has much more issues that need to be addressed. Finding herself cursed she turns into a Dragon when the clock struck midnight. Let’s not forget the Prince, who may or may not be all that chivalrous towards our heroine. Add one sorcerer from a family of assassins who finds himself banished because he harbors a conscious.

The author has created an engaging and memorable heroine, and her highly accomplished writing ensures that the reader is swept along in this captivating tale. Creative world building and a cast of wonderful characters help to propel this book.

I enjoyed mashup and it made for a fast read that held my attention from start to finish. Excited to see what in store from these engaging characters in the next book in this series.

REVIEW

From the desk of Gwendalyn Anderson

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Set in 1836 in London The Pickwick Murders is the fourth Charles Dickens Mystery Series. This time it’s up to Miss Kate Hogarth, to unravel the pieces to an intriguing puzzle to save her Fiancé.

Charles Dickens, an up coming journalist for the Morning Chronicle. He seems to be making strides in his life. Just weeks before his book is to be release and his impending to marriage to his fiancée Miss Kate Hogarth. Things take a tragic turn for the worst. Feeling elated from receiving an invitation to join the exclusive Lightning Club Charles arrives at the place and time that invite states. Only his initiation is not what he had hoped it would be. Charles finds himself in the dreadful Newgate Prison, framed. Patiently waiting for his fiancé and family to do what they can to prove his innocence, Charles endures the horrific day to day life along with those others imprisoned in Newgate.

The author has once again written a captivating cozy historical mystery. I had no trouble reading this book from start to finish without stopping.

I enjoyed the author rich historical imagery and the writing was solid. The light mystery was perfectly executed. The author did a wonderful job creating engaging characters that were entertaining to read about.

Blog Tour Widdershins

Hello Lovelies, Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for

Widdershins by Helen Steadman @hsteadman1650

Today I have wonderful Excerpt of lovely Audio Book

Widdershins

(Widdershins, Book 1) By Helen Steadman

Narrated by Christine Mackie

Publication Date: 25 June 2021

Publisher: Impress Books ・Audiobook Length: 8.5 hour

Genre: Historical Fiction

The new audio book of Widdershins is narrated brilliantly by talented actor, Christine Mackie, from Downton Abbey, Coronation Street, Wire in the Blood, and so on.

The first part of a two-part series, Widdershins is inspired by the Newcastle witch trials, where 16 people were hanged. Despite being the largest mass execution of witches on a single day in England, these trials are not widely known about. In August 1650, 15 women and one man were hanged as witches after a Scottish witchfinder found them guilty of consorting with the devil. This notorious man was hired by the Puritan authorities in response to a petition from the Newcastle townsfolk who wanted to be rid of their witches.

Widdershins is told through the eyes of Jane Chandler, a young woman accused of witchcraft, and John Sharpe, the witchfinder who condemns her to death. Jane Chandler is an apprentice healer. From childhood, she and her mother have used herbs to cure the sick. But Jane soon learns that her sheltered life in a small village is not safe from the troubles of the wider world. From his father’s beatings to his uncle’s raging sermons, John Sharpe is beset by bad fortune. Fighting through personal tragedy, he finds his purpose: to become a witchfinder and save innocents from the scourge of witchcraft.

Praise for Widdershins:

The Historical Novel Society said of Widdershins: “Impeccably written, full of herbal lore and the clash of ignorance and prejudice against common sense, as well as the abounding beauty of nature, it made for a great read. There are plenty of books, both fact and fiction, available about the witch-trial era, but not only did I not know about such trials in Newcastle, I have not read a novel that so painstakingly and vividly evokes both the fear and joy of living at that time.”

AUTHOR

Helen Steadman

Dr Helen Steadman is a historical novelist. Her first novel, Widdershins and its sequel, Sunwise were inspired by the Newcastle witch trials. Her third novel, The Running Wolf was inspired by a group of Lutheran swordmakers who defected from Germany to England in 1687.

Despite the Newcastle witch trials being the largest mass execution of witches on a single day in England, they are not widely known about. Helen is particularly interested in revealing hidden histories and she is a thorough researcher who goes to great lengths in pursuit of historical accuracy. To get under the skin of the cunning women in Widdershins and Sunwise, Helen trained in herbalism and learned how to identify, grow and harvest plants and then made herbal medicines from bark, seeds, flowers and berries.

The Running Wolf is the story of a group of master swordmakers who left Solingen, Germany and moved to Shotley Bridge, England in 1687. As well as carrying out in-depth archive research and visiting forges in Solingen to bring her story to life, Helen also undertook blacksmith training, which culminated in making her own sword. During her archive research, Helen uncovered a lot of new material and she published her findings in the Northern History journal.

Helen is now working on her fourth novel.

Little Thieves by Margaret Owen

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing date: October 19th, 2021

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | IndieBound | Indigo

Synopsis:

Once upon a time, there was a horrible girl…

Vanja Schmidt knows that no gift is freely given, not even a mother’s love–and she’s on the hook for one hell of a debt. Vanja, the adopted goddaughter of Death and Fortune, was Princess Gisele’s dutiful servant up until a year ago. That was when Vanja’s otherworldly mothers demanded a terrible price for their care, and Vanja decided to steal her future back… by stealing Gisele’s life for herself.

The real Gisele is left a penniless nobody while Vanja uses an enchanted string of pearls to take her place. Now, Vanja leads a lonely but lucrative double life as princess and jewel thief, charming nobility while emptying their coffers to fund her great escape. Then, one heist away from freedom, Vanja crosses the wrong god and is cursed to an untimely end: turning into jewels, stone by stone, for her greed.

Vanja has just two weeks to figure out how to break her curse and make her getaway. And with a feral guardian half-god, Gisele’s sinister fiancé, and an overeager junior detective on Vanja’s tail, she’ll have to pull the biggest grift yet to save her own life.

Margaret Owen, author of The Merciful Crow series, crafts a delightfully irreverent retelling of “The Goose Girl” about stolen lives, thorny truths, and the wicked girls at the heart of both.

REVIEW

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

An incredible thank you to the Author Margaret Owen, @what_eats_owls & @tbrbeyondtours for stunning hardback copy

♥︎🤎♥︎

First Lines can really set the up your reading experience don’t you agree? Like this one….

“Once upon a time, on the coldest night of midwinter, in the

darkest heart of the forest, Death and Fortune came to a crossroads.”

—Little Thieves

Holly Smokes this was a stellar new take on the age old fabled tale, The Goose Girl

We follow seventeen year old anti-heroine Vanja Schmidt. Who wears many faces: one of an adopted goddaughter of Fortune and Death, and another as a lowly maid. Along with becoming a princess imposter, and and an excellent jewel thief.

Vanja is the thirteenth child of a thirteen child, when she is just four years old her mother hands her off to two low gods, Death and Fortune. Ahhh but there is a debt to paid for Vanja upbringing… submission and servitude.

Taking things into her own hands, she sets about away that could ultimately change her fate. All with the help of an enchanted string of pearls, she seeks a life of her own.

When a series of events take place, the devious masquerading Vanja finds herself cursed.

Owen’s clever writing stands out when she decided to break the book with little tiny tales. Vanja is an extremely relatable character, her struggles and heartbreak, and complete alienation felt real. Her loneliness is perfectly depicted and as a reader you will endure her turbulent trials right along side her. This bold and feisty protagonist,

is a product of her suppressed damaged life. Outwardly she may comes across as devious, but in reality she is so much more. Wanting nothing more than being in control of her own life and destiny.

The storyline is well paced with reveals that come at just the right time. Owen’s narration is seamless, and flows effortlessly and smoothly. Making this book a fast read one that I completely inhaled. The German world building, was descriptive and I felt Immersed within the unique fable that author has created. The romance was done with just amount of depth, without overwhelming the plot line.

Margaret Owen is truly a gifted storyteller, and don’t mean that lightly. This was my first time reading her work and I have already bought her other books to read right away.

AUTHOR

Born and raised at the end of the Oregon Trail, Margaret Owen first encountered an author in the wild in fourth grade. Roughly twenty seconds later, she decided she too would be an author, the first of many well-thought-out life decisions.

The career plan shifted frequently as Margaret spent her childhood haunting the halls of Powell’s Books. After earning her degree in Japanese, her love of espresso called her north to Seattle, where she worked in everything from thrift stores to presidential campaigns. The common thread between every job can be summed up as: lessons were learned.

Fortunately, it turned out that fourth-grade Margaret was onto something. She now spends her days wrestling disgruntled characters onto the page, and negotiating a long-term hostage situation with her two monstrous cats. (There is surprisingly little difference between the two.) In her free time, she enjoys exploring ill-advised travel destinations, and raising money for social justice nonprofits through her illustrations.

EXCERPT

Traitor’s Knot, by Cryssa Bazos

Excerpt #5 (950 words)

Elizabeth Seton couldn’t understand the greed of seagulls. The two birds beat their wings and fought over a scrap of offal while ignoring the endless sea. She had a desire to pick up her skirts and, so running, scatter them to the sky. But from behind her, a rock was thrown at the birds. It bounced off the cobbles a foot away from them. Gulls took flight, and Elizabeth whirled around, equally startled. A soot-faced urchin winked and scampered off.

Elizabeth smiled in the direction of the retreating boy and continued down the quayside towards the market. The wind off the bay freshened, whipping her dark hair and skirts. She tucked an errant lock back into her coif and snuggled deeper into her blue woollen cloak. No time to tarry. She had business to attend.

When she neared the market, her stomach gave a nervous flutter. Positive thoughts breed true. She adjusted the basket that rode in the crook of her arm and pressed on.

Elizabeth wended her way through the market stalls, not stopping at the rows of long whitefish laid out silvery across wooden boards. Their fresh scent of the sea beckoned for a closer inspection, but her business was with the oystercatcher’s wife. If it went well, she’d return for one of the smaller ones.

Elizabeth’s boots tapped against the stone cobbles, and she practised under her breath, “I hear, Fishwife Midden, that Margery has left your employ.” Annoyed with herself, she shook her head. The woman would think she was a gossip, and no one trusted a loose tongue. Elizabeth needed to impress her. The Middens preferred their help young enough to be trained to their ways, but at twenty-two, Elizabeth found herself at a disadvantage.

There was a time when Elizabeth didn’t need to worry about finding employment. Before the war, her father, Thomas Seton, had once been a respected shipwright, his trade crucial in a seaside town, while her mother, Mary, was a healer and the first to be fetched for matters regarding childbirth and sickness. Elizabeth had expected to follow her mother’s calling.

She passed a row of empty stalls and for a moment considered selling their ointments, but she knew better. A gift for a gift, never coin—her grandmother’s mantra. No matter how reduced their circumstances, Mary Seton would never accept payment for physic. It didn’t matter. None would purchase in public what they now avoided in private.  

When Elizabeth spied a knot of women at the cheesemonger’s, she slowed down. Here was the elite of Weymouth—officers’ wives and those closely connected to the Parliamentary governor. They were particular friends of her older sister, Kate Hallet, though none of hers. Elizabeth considered skirting their position, but instead she lifted her chin, held her breath and stayed true. As she passed, one said, “There’s Seton’s girl. Shame about that business.”

Elizabeth flinched, but she forced herself to ignore them.

Though the war had ended a year earlier with the King’s execution, the divisions had never been repaired. Even Kate, who had married a Parliament garrison soldier, kept a resolute distance from Elizabeth and their mother. Only a handful of Royalist families still concerned themselves with her family’s welfare.

Up ahead, the oystercatcher’s stall thronged with customers. Elizabeth took heart and made her way to the front.

“There you are, mistress.” Fishwife Midden greeted her with a smile. Her nose was tipped pink, and her hands were gnarled from working in the cold seawater. “You’ve picked a good day. The oysters are plump and juicy. Six or eight?”

Elizabeth hesitated. “Four, if you please.”

“Only that?” The woman’s brow’s puckered. She bent over a barrel and scooped out the oysters, placing them in Elizabeth’s basket. “How’s your mother doing? I heard she ain’t well.”

“Better, thank you,” Elizabeth replied, handing over two of her remaining coins. “I’m certain she’s taken a good turn.”

“God save her,” the fishwife said. “We’ve missed her these past few months.”

Elizabeth watched the old woman edge away, her eyes darting to the next customer. This was her chance. “I was wondering . . .”

“Aye, deary?”

“I ran into Margery the other day—”

“Did you now? Stopped to chat, did she?” Fishwife Midden rested her hands on her round hips.

“I had a thought—since my mother is doing better, she’ll need less of my attention,” Elizabeth said. “You’ll need help now that Margery is gone. I can attend behind the counter or sort out the catch.”

Fishwife Midden’s expression softened. “I’m afraid not, deary.” She started to turn away, and Elizabeth laid her hand on the woman’s arm.

“You can pay me half of what you paid Margery. I’ll still bless you for it.”

“You’re worth more than that, sweetling,” she replied, “but I can’t take you on.”

“Please.” Elizabeth hated to beg but swallowed her pride. “For the regard you and your husband once bore my father, for all the repairs he made on your fishing boats without a shilling . . .”

“Mistress Seton,” she said with the slightest emphasis on her last name, “it’s impossible.” She glanced past her shoulder and nodded to someone. Elizabeth turned and found the officers’ wives flanked behind her.

“Are you done, Fishwife?” their leader asked. “If I’m delayed in this manner, I’ll press on to another stall.”

“Apologies, mistress,” Fishwife Midden said. “Did you want your usual quarter barrel?”

The flow of the market passed over Elizabeth, rendering her invisible. It always came down to that. Not many in Weymouth dared doff their caps to the memory of those, like her father, who had taken a stand for the King.

The rest of the town still called them traitors.

The Factory Girl and the Fey

Nadine Galinsky Feldman

Publication date: October 14, 2021 by Nadine Feldman

Genre: Historical Fiction & Fantasy

Jane Thorburn straddles two worlds: her life as a “factory girl” in Scotland’s mills, and her birthright as fairy royalty. Abandoned by her parents as an infant, and uncertain about the true motives of the Fey, she learns to depend only on herself. All she wants is to be a great weaver and live an independent life.

The Fair Folk, fighting for their very survival, have other plans for her, as does the handsome and charismatic Robert Stein. What life will she choose? And will she even have a choice?

A historical fantasy inspired by the author’s ancestors, The Factory Girl and the Fey is an affectionate tribute to the women who helped fuel Scotland’s Industrial Age, from the workers to the poets…and to the Fey who remind us that magic is real when we believe in it.

REVIEW

Set in the Industrial Age of Scotland a young factory girl Jane Thorburn, tale comes to life. An historical fiction book with tons of magical realism, The Factory Girl and the Fey was a fast read. Lighthearted but also very realistic in its portrayal of the living and working conditions of the hard working people during this time period.

Mixed with fantasy and yes heartbreak, I enjoyed reading about the struggles and decisions that Jane faced. I also was captivated by the lovely addition of poetry to the start of each chapter.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

Synopsis:

18-year-old thief Neva Roberts has been living on the run since absconding with the Eye, piece of the greatest weapon ever created. But she’s running from more than a cold-hearted ruler. She has exiled herself to a barren land, trying to forget the pain she caused.

When Trinizhi’s squad of assassins catches up with Neva, her life on the run comes to an abrupt end, and the ultimate betrayal is unveiled. Only one person — Astiand — knew where she was hiding.

With the help of Emiliand and a new Djinn friend, Neva will return to her homeland for the job of a lifetime. If she can overcome dragon wardens, escape a prison island, and double-cross Trinizhi, Neva might just start forgiving herself…

By night, the Ankou is a legendary, permanently young mercenary. By day, a witch’s curse leaves him no more than bones. Caught in an unending cycle of death and resurrection, the Ankou wants only to find the death that has been prophesied for him, especially once he begins to rot while he’s still alive….

After the kingdom of Kaer-Ise is sacked, Flora, loyal handmaiden to the princess, is assaulted and left for dead. As the sole survivor of the massacre, Flora wants desperately to find the princess she served. When the Ankou agrees to help her find the princess, and to train her in exchange for her help in breaking his curse, she accepts. But how can she kill an immortal? Especially one whom she is slowly growing to understand—and maybe even to love?

Together, they will solve mysteries, battle monsters, break curses, and race not only against time, but against fate itself.

Damn This Book Was Good♥︎

Are you ready for an incredible stunning fantasy?

Filled with mysterious immortal monster hunter, with a kickAss Heroine♥︎ Add mythical creatures and a creepy ancient curse!!

Ankou, known as Lazarus has been cursed for 300 years of a deathless death. A paid mercenary he hunts down monsters within the Five Lands, and destroys them. Florelle {Flora} Tanett is handmaiden to Princess Betheara Ilurosa. When her quite world comes crashing down and everything she has known is completely destroyed.

An horrific event leaves her leaves for dead, if not for the intervention of an all blacked clothed stranger. A friendship sparks as the two set out on an epic quest. Ankou seeks to end his unrelenting curse that causes him to be become a skeleton that travel the inbetween of life and death. Flora seeks to find her best friend and future Queen, Princess Betheara Ilurosa. Their journey is joined by another intriguing character Atonais. I just adored him, and he added some great comic dialogue.

This fantasy that packs a punch! Yes it’s dark, and riveting, but it also tackles some thought provoking themes. To me I found it to be darkishly delightful! The YA world building and writing is not to demanding so it makes it a fast read.

The characters are well developed and three dimensional. The narration was seamless and I thought the slow burn romance was perfect and well depicted. The author intricately plots a character driven fantasy adventure.

This one book that you don’t book pass up!

Kate Pentecost is one author to look out for, and the book That Dark Infinity a sealed place in my library.

Please be advised readers to look into content warnings on this book.

“Death made equals of cowards and heroes, friend or foe.”

-Windswept, Annabelle McCormack –

Windswept by the debut author Annabelle McCormack is a riveting book.

Full of suspense and intrigue that occurred in the Middle Eastern campaign of WWI,

Strong willed Lady Virginia Whitman otherwise know as Ginger, is a red-haired war nurse. Ginger is far from her once privileged life in Britain, now she finds herself in the front lines, stationed at a field hospital for wounded soldiers in Gaza Palestin.

When Ginger finds a severely wounded Turkish soldier who reveals he is a spy for British intelligence, and who is in fact in possession of crucial information that would have devastating consequences should it fall into the wrong hands. Throwing caution to the wind Ginger decision to help him places her in a dangerous game of espionage.

This was fast paced propulsive storyline, offering both drama and a smoldering romance. Spies and secrets, the reader will find themselves captivating with the spitfire heroine. The atmospheric imagery along with crucial details place you the reader front line and center.

This is one book that I highly recommend to my friends and family who enjoy superb historical fiction.

I have to say this might be my favorite WW1 book of all time
