Review of novella "Undercover Magic" (Dragon's Gift: The Valkyrie Book 1) - Linsey Hall
Undercover Magic (Dragon's Gift: The Valkyrie Book 1) - Linsey Hall

So, random Amazon prime borrow (Kindle Owner's Lending Library) -- a freebie, self-/indie published  and a shorter length work that I really wound up enjoying.

 

Not really sure why beyond liking the heroine.  It threw so much at you at once that I'm not sure I have a handle on the story, the series or the worldbuilding.  But just go with it; action-packed and full of pretty much everything supernatural, paranormal or fairy-tale-ish.

 

Not sure yet why series is called Dragon's Gift or Valkyrie.  No Valkyries yet.  The main character and her sister's powers are still unknown at end of this one.

 

Probably the best review I can give this is that I plan on reading the next novella in the series.

The Stuff of Legend: Book 1: The Dark - Brian Smith, Mike Raicht, Charles Wilson (Illustrator)

For more reviews, check out my blog Craft-Cycle

This story works perfectly as a graphic novel. I love the contrast in characters' appearances in the "real world" vs. The Dark. The artwork is amazing. It is such an interesting contrast between childhood play and actual war.

The plot itself is very interesting. It's kind of like Toy Story if Buzz and Woody went on a murderous rampage to save Andy from a nightmare incarnate. Awesome stuff. 

Cool beginning to the series. I am looking forward to reading the next book.

Amazon Review Quote

"This well written fantasy has plenty of intriguing characters and plenty of action, with some doses of peril that will keep you reading and crossing your fingers for a happy ending.  I sure enjoyed it and would love to read more about Blue, his friends, and this magical world."

Review of "No One Lives Twice No One Lives Twice" (Lexi Carmichael #1) - Julie Moffett
No One Lives Twice No One Lives Twice - Julie Moffett

Well, this stayed unexpectedly action-packed start to finish so was fun (particularly when turning to the James Bond international espionage drawing in MI-6, CIA, FBI, NSA...).

 

I enjoyed the read.

 

Not sure it's what I'd consider Young Adult.  Lots of romantic possibilities with yummy men (not what I'd consider a love triangle, thank goodness -- but definitely a PG or less explicitness so maybe that accounts for the "YA"?  Lexi is an independent adult with degree, steady job, own home, not a teenager, not a 18-24 college student or new adult, not in any academy type of setting -- pretty much not seeing where this is YA.

 

Which is a good thing; YA is a love/hate for me with many great books but far more angst-y, clueless, high school-ish, and loveg ringlets.

 

Read for the booklikes' YA Book Club; I think it may have been just me unless someone has yet to join in or post.
