The Promised Queen (Forgotten Empires #3) by Jeffe Kennedy

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is a satisfying ending to a good YA Fantasy trilogy. Conrí, former Crown Prince of Oriel, married Queen Euthalia of Calanthe to fulfill the prophecy that would end Emperor Anure’s cruel hold over the empire. But they failed. Con gave it all he had and Lia gave her life – temporarily- but nothing worked.

Warrior’s Ransom (The First Argentine’s #2) by Jeff Wheeler

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is another great book in this YA Fantasy series. If you haven’t read the first book yet, you have time to pick it up and read, and then read this one before the third book comes out in September 2021.

The Shadow of the Gods (The Bloodsworn Saga, #1) by John Gwynne

Rating: 4 out of 5.

4.5 stars

Wow. What a fantastic first book in a new, exciting epic fantasy series. It’s got everything you want in an epic fantasy; Norse mythology, gods, monsters, dragons, swords, battles, mercenaries, stupid and/or evil rulers, skilled fighters, cowards, plucky former slaves out for vengeance, quests, and much more. The book ends on a great cliffhanger and I can’t wait to see what the author will bring us next.

A Question of Navigation by Kevin Hearne

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was a funny, creepy science fiction short story by one of my favorite authors. I don’t even like short stories, but I loved this one.

The Russian Cage (Gunnie Rose #3) by Charlaine Harris

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a great finish to this book series……or is it?? I just discovered that the author is writing a fourth Gunnie Rose book (release date 2022) – no idea what the plot will be because the main storyline of this series wrapped up in this book, but there are definitely enough loose ends to continue the series another several books, which I would love.

The Bone Maker by Sarah Beth Durst

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Durst has done it again -written a fantastic, can’t-put-down, stand alone fantasy book. I love her writing, I love her characters and I love her original story-telling. I get excited every time she releases a new book – and this one does not disappoint.

The story is set in the kingdom of Vos. The kingdom has bone makers who can animate bones to create objects that can do a variety of things, like clean, send messages, etc. They also create charms that give people a limited amount of “super-powers”, like strength, speed, stealth, etc. These creations are made from animal bones – the use of human bones is illegal.

Ready Player Two (Ready Player One, #2) by Ernest Cline

Rating: 3 out of 5.

3.5 stars

I LOVED Ready Player One and read it in one sitting. So, I was super excited when I heard the author was writing a sequel. While I liked this book, it pales in comparison to the first one. But hey, what do you expect? The first book was brilliant and I’m not surprised I didn’t like the second one as much.

Persephone Station by Stina Leicht

Rating: 3 out of 5.

For me, this science fiction book is a miss. I just couldn’t get into it. It is well-written and packed with action, but it just didn’t interest me.

Ashwater (Ashwater #1) by Melissa Koberlein

Rating: 3 out of 5.

3. 5 stars

This is a cute, light and fluffy first book in a new YA SciFi series.

Adam is an android that escaped from a biological company and settled down in a nearby town called Ashwater. He’s an android/human hybrid, with a computer processor for a brain, as well as a host of weaponry he can use to eliminate threats. But, he is also just an 18 year old boy that is hungry all the time, likes to play video games and dance, and just got a crush on a girl named Evie.
