Blog Tour: Julia Vanishes by Catherine Egan

Murder, magic, thievery, and intrigue fill the pages in Catherine Egan's debut YA novel JULIA VANISHES. 

This is the first book in the Witches Child trilogy. This is the sort of read that draws you in, carefully placing clues and reveals, while cleverly drawing the reader into its dark lair. I had a hard time putting down Julia Vanishes. As I finished each chapter, I would flip to the next promising myself just one more - late into the night.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

EVERY HEART A DOORWAY gives readers a peek into the cracks and doorways of magical worlds. Worlds of wonder and whimsy, and then asks: "What if you were to tumble into one of these enchanting realms?" EVERY HEART A DOORWAY tells the story of what happens after, the Ever After. When the children who have tumbled down the rabbit hole or entered that wardrobe are no longer wanted, their magic all used up.

Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

Imaginative and vivid, The Queen of Hearts is the first book in Colleen Oakes' Queen of Hearts series which is set in the fantastic world of (pre) Alice in Wonderland. It gives readers a new perspective of the infamous Queen of Hearts coming from the young voice of Dinah, princess, and heir to the throne of Wonderland.

Warrior Witch by Danielle L. Jensen

Warrior Witch is the concluding story to Danielle L. Jensen's the Malediction Trilogy.  As a concluding book, I could not help but be nervous having to say goodbye to a series I love - hoping the ending is epic and Tristan and Cécile get their HEA.

Book Review: Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep

Well, that was completely enjoyable! It was so good to be back into the world Jennifer Estep has created with Black Blade series. Book two deposits the reader back into the wonderful world of Cloudburst Falls, West Virginia where mortals and magicks mix  in "the most magical place in America" a town where "fairy tales are real". 

Traitor Angels by Anne Blankman

Traitor Angels is a heady mix of historic details, atmosphere, and intrigue. Set in seventeenth-century England, during the reign of King Charles II, Blankman easily weaves in historical figures, you'll see page time from John Milton, Galileo, and King Charles II as well as visit a Physic's Garden in an abandoned Oxford cemetery, dance at a ball hosted by the Duke's of Buckingham, and go on a scavenger hunt across England's countryside as the protagonist Elizabeth deciphers the secret clues left in her father's work Paradise Lost.
