Viola Doyle Or An Unconventional Gift

20705553

 

Riding her bicycle at a speed no proper young woman would attempt, letting her hair fly free, conversing with statues of long-dead heroines—these are all par for the course for Viola Doyle, much to her mother’s chagrin.

Keeping her newfound magical pin safe from those who would use it to unsavory ends and dealing with a handsome young historian takes quite a bit more effort.

And then, of course, there is the dragon…

To save herself and those she loves, it is up to Viola to become her own heroine, or suffer a terrible fate…

My Review:

Great book. I really enjoyed reading it. Viola is a great character. Viola is given a pin that she finds out is not just any ordinary pin. She sets out to find out everything she can about it. Her hunt leads to some very interesting twists and turns in the book. The world that Amy has built for the characters to live in is great as well. I love that it involves dragons too. Dragons are one of my favorite creatures. I highly recommend it to others. I look forward to reading more of Amy’s books.

Author Bio

Amy Lynn Spitzley lives, writes, daydreams, and walks by the shores of a Great Lake in Traverse City, Michigan. She has two goofy children and one British husband. She finds writing for teens is where it’s at because they tend to be informal, character-driven, and casual. (Plus the dialogue is really fun!)
When not writing she can be found creating collages or making faces at formality until it gives up and hides under the kitchen table.

Wilde’s Meadow (Darkness Falls #3) by Krystal Wade Review

Wilde’s Meadow (Darkness Falls #3)

Happy endings are hard to find, and even though Katriona is in the middle of a war with someone who’s already stolen more than she can replace, she aches for a positive future with her Draíochtans.

Armed with hope, confidence in her abilities, and a strange new gift from her mother, Kate ventures into the Darkness to defeat a fallen god.

Losses add up, and new obstacles rise to stand in the way. Is the one determined to bring Encardia light strong enough to keep fighting, or will all the sacrifices to stop those who seek domination be for nothing?

 

 

My Review:

It was a great read. I couldn’t put it down. It has some great twists and turns. We see Kate’s story come to an end. She is faced with some difficult challenges in this one. The decisions that she makes will not only have consequences for herself  but those around her as well. Want to find out what happens and how it ends then add it along with the other two to your TBR list. I highly recommend the series to everyone. I look forward to reading more of Krystal’s books.

Krystal Wade

I’m happily married to the love of my life (don’t gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. We live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day I wake up to find myself stuck in traffic trying to get there.

The horrid commute gives me plenty of time to zone out and think about my characters in full, brilliant details (I’m a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give me a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to me on the fifty mile trek into town (I pick up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe me).

I’ve been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that’s just one small aspect of my oh-so-large life. When I’m not working, commuting, or chasing after my three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find me outside talking to my chickens like they’re the cutest things in the world (they are), or training my amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can’t that be 100% of the time?).

I hope you love my stories (or just like them a little; that would be okay, too). And I hope that one day you find your passion, because there’s nothing in life better than doing what you love while surrounded by people you love.
