Book review for : Reawakened Author : Colleen Houck Rating : 2 stars Series : Reawakened series book 1 Pretty cover, face-palm contents I hated the main character within 10 pages. Now THAT is impressive!

Book review for : Fabled Kingdom Author : Queenie Chan Rating : 5 stars Series : Fabled Kingdom book 1 Fun Blend of Fairy Tale and Original I enjoyed Queenie Chan's series The Dreaming and was excited to give Fabled Kingdom a shot after hearing she was writing it. I like her art style and her writing.
Book review for : Writers of the Future Volume 30 Author : various; short story collection Rating : 4 stars Series : Volume 30 of the publication but it doesn't matter. Sparklies I've read a couple Writers of the Future collections, and I can't say this one is very different. It seems most of the stories carry a message -- i.e. a good portion of the stories take place after humans have destroyed their world and its habitat. Yippee.
