Confrontation with the mages brings death and more betrayal
Birthright Volume 4: Family History - Joshua Williamson

 

This collection continues the story of Mikey, kidnapped a a boy to Terrenos and now returned as a fierce warrior. This volume deals with the battle between the mages and Mikey with his allies. With quite a lot of bloodshed and death, this volume carries on this exciting story with the end in sight

Engaging and well-written, this series is well-illustrated and entertaining. Hopefully the next volume will bring everything to a satisfactory conclusion: I don't like series to drag on forever.

Lifting the veil
Cry, Heart, But Never Break - Glenn Ringtved,Charlotte Pardi,Robert Moulthrop

I can't remember how I came to find out about today's book but I am certainly glad that I did. The book is Cry, Heart, But Never Break by Glenn Ringtved with illustrations by Charlotte Pardi. (It's translated from Dutch to English by Robert Moulthrop.) The premise is a simple one: Teaching children how to handle the grief of a loved one who passes away. (Coincidentally, it might help adults as well.) The illustrations themselves are quite unique and beautiful but when linked with the words are perfect and stunning. The story follows 4 siblings who wait with Death who is there to take their grandmother. It's a poignant depiction of the tension that one feels when sitting at the bedside of someone near and dear to your heart. It's a lifting of the veil so that if a child were to experience death they would see that without it there can be no fervor or joy in life. It's a two-sided coin. It's an extremely touching story and I think it is a really lovely way to introduce a difficult topic to children (you can't shield them from it forever and you really shouldn't try). 10/10 and highly recommend to all ages.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW, & #GIVEAWAY - Jared's Family by VS Morgan
Jared's Family - V.S. Morgan
Jared's Family is a sweet M/M romance, set in Montana. Virge goes there to try and help his nephew, and gets more than he bargains for when he sees Jared filling in for his brother as the Reading Wrangler. The attraction is instantaneous for both of them, although they both have baggage from the past, so neither act on it immediately.
 
This is a well-paced and smooth story, that will keep you turning the pages as D wins over more than a little piece of your heart. Of course, it helps that Jared and Virge are steamin' hot too! Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this is a wonderful book, and I would love to read more about the Malone family. Definitely recommended by me.
