Wings of Fire by Tui T. Sutherland
This was a fantastic continuation of the Wings of Fire series. I really loved how the Darkstalker storyline was wrapped up. These books are always easy to read, engaging, and well written. I would definitely recommend to middle grade and older readers who love dragons, adventure, war, and magic.
Book 10: Darkness of Dragons
The Witches of Eileanan Series by Kate Forsyth
I thought this was an amazing fantasy novel and a great start to this series. I loved everything about this book including the characters, the world, the writing style; it was all incredibly engrossing and engaging. If you haven’t read this fantasy series yet, and are a big traditional fantasy fan, I would highly recommend it!
Book 1: The Witches of Eileanan
The Falconer Trilogy by Elizabeth May
This has been an amazing fantasy series with both steampunk and fae elements. I love the world and the characters and am desperate to see how things wrap up in the third book.
Book 3: The Fallen Kingdom
The Queens of Renthia series by Sarah Beth Durst
An amazing and imaginative fantasy world, couple with an easy to love heroine made this a wonderfully engaging read. The plot is fast-moving and this book was so much fun to
Book 2: The Reluctant Queen
Lockwood and Co by Jonathan Stroud
I have been loving this series but this book just took the whole series to a new level of awesomeness. This is the fourth year this series has been on my favorite’s list. Stroud does a wonderful job of creating a creepy and creative world with characters that are mysterious and engaging. The story is just amazing and I am so in love with it and very sad that it’s over.
Book 5: The Empty Grave
Overall this was a fantastic epic fantasy novel. The writing is absolutely beautiful, the world-building is impressive, and the characters are amazing. This is hands down one of the best books I have read so far this year.
This ended up being a highly entertaining book and I really loved it. The story has a lot of highs and lows but somehow still comes off as being happy and hopeful. I loved Tilly and the characters that surrounded her and enjoyed the touches of magic throughout. I would recommend to those who enjoy historical fantasy and don’t mind some eroticism in their stories.
This was an awesome book that totally surprised me with how much I loved it. I always love books that have a good balance between world-building, mystery, action, adventure, and romance. This book is perfectly balanced and well written; there is also a lot of humor which makes it super fun to read! I will definitely continue on with the series. I would recommend to YA fantasy fans who enjoy action and adventure with their romance.
