The Shadow of a KingThe Shadow of a King by C.M. Gray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a 5 star + read. LOVE!LOVE!LOVE!

This is a wonderful telling of a time in the life of Uther Pendragon, High King of Britain and father of the famous King Arthur. History comes to life in this story, full of rich characters and settings. We are drawn into this story as Uther is telling about events in his past to Morgana. Full of the magic of druids, knights and battles, and the answers to questions that we have all wondered about.

I certainly hope this is not the last installment in the Shadowlands series. I want to know more about King Uther and Merlin and all the other wonderful characters that we have met. Both this read and the previous are awesome and highly recommended to lovers of fantasy.

Consequences, Book #4 of the Chronicles of M

Consequences (Chronicles of M, #4)Consequences by Nicholas Forristal

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved it of course!

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This entire series has been such a fun read so far, and this installment is no exception. There is so much going on in this series. Its X-men with a dash of mortal combat and a good dose of comic book heroes. There is a lot of action, humor, mystery, and a lot of science fiction thrown in for good measure. I have always said this series would make a great graphic novel series.

Many of the previous characters, especially M, have returned but we are introduced to a few new ones as well. But to prevent spoilers I will leave it at that.

If you enjoyed the first three you should continue with this one. If you haven't read the first three you should definitely give it a shot if you love an action packed, sci-fi page turner.

Deep Blue

Deep Blue (Waterfire Saga, #1)Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I want to thank my daughter for introducing me to this series as it was my Xmas present. I haven't read many books in the mermaid genre and none that I have liked very well except for this series. This book was certainly much more than the cover reveals.

Serafina is the princess on the eve of the ceremony that marks her as worthy of one day bearing the crown. She is having dreams where the Iele are calling her for a quest. The Iele are freshwater witches that are supposedly a myth. Thus begins her quest and great adventure full of danger, friendship, history, mythology, and romance. Its also full of true life information concerning the state of the world's seas and its inhabitants caused by human pollutants and overfishing.

Its true that the story is full of puns and plays on words (keep in mind it IS a young adult book) but its also full of fun, adventure, and some very real truths. I loved the range of characters from all ethnicities, personalities, and some interesting traits and abilities. Overall a very fun read and I can't wait to read the next installment.
