Review: Dragon Rising by M. Lynn

Review: Dragon Rising by M. Lynn

What an adventure! Dragon Rising by is the first in her new series inspired by Mulan. I love retellings! Several years ago when I first started reading retellings, I was skeptical, but that was unfounded. I love how an author can take an original, well-known tale and put their own spin on it. And does […]

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Beauty and Beastly by is a steampunk retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love this twist on the original! It is unlike anything I’ve ever read. The clockwork, steam powered Beast is a heartbreaking, yet charming character that was easy to see why the MC would fall for him. Set during 1814 […]
