Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Falling Kingdoms  by  Morgan Rhodes

If you're into fast-paced midieval-era books, you should try this one! There's 3 kingdoms: Limeros, Paelsia, and Auranos. Ever since the loss of the Kindred, or the wieler of all four elements of magic, northern Limeros and the middle country, Paelsia, have fallen into hardship, with little to no crop land, while Auranos continues in plenty and splendor. This all changes when Princess Cleo and her soon-to-be-fiance travel to Paelsia for wine and end up with a murder. A war breaks out between the three countries the likes that hasn't been seen in centuries. But the northerners have a secret weopon: a sorceress. What does fate have in store for these three countries and all who live in them? Will magic find its way back into the world, before it's too late? Only this book can tell! Read Falling Kingdoms!!

The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson

Rating: Excellent! (5)

The Fairest Beauty  by  Melanie Dickerson

It doesn't take long to decipher which fantasy princess this well written retelling is about. With a heroine beautiful both inside and out, and her rescuer willing to put his life on the line for her, this story sweeps you off your feet. The details and twists hold you captive as you wait to see if Sophie is really the duke's daughter, and if she and handsome Gabehart will escape alive with their heads and hearts intact. Read this lively, passionate book to find out that God's plan for two young people may not be what everyone would expect.

Artemis Fowl by Erin Colfer

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Artemis Fowl  by  Erin Colfer

Fairies are real. But, they are not the silly tap-dancing happy rainbow-loving ones in stories. These fairies are armed and have violent tendencies. When Artemis Fowl, boy genius, decides to kidnap one and hold it for ransom, he doesn't realize just what he's getting into. So there begins the battle between the Fairy Police and the criminal mastermind, complete with epic battles, intricate plans, rather confusing technology, and dwarves with a certain "talent." This book is full of action, humor, and adventure. You will definitely enjoy this exciting read.
