Review: City of Dark Magic

City of Dark Magic City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Never judge a book by its cover, they say! I have to come clear and admit that I selected this book because of its cover... it is so beautiful! And guess what!!! The book was pretty awesome too! I love stories where the author uses the past to define the present. Especially when they used actual historical characters, documents or events. When I see a name I do not recognise; I google it and learn about who he/she/it was and their contribution to history. This book is full of these kinds of goodies: music composers, alchemists, religious personalities and royalties. This is a great story with lots of surprising plots. Love it!

Review: The Silver Witch

The Silver Witch The Silver Witch by Paula Brackston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book by Paula Brackston I have the pleasure to read. The Silver Witch takes place in Wales, UK and tells the story of two women in two different time periods. Seren is a shaman in the court of Prince Brynach, who lived around 910 AD near an ancient lake. Tilda is a young widow and ceramic artist who moves to a secluded Welsh cottage on the banks of the same ancient lake, but in modern times. There is a deep connection between the two women and the lake. The story is bewitching and has wonderful Welsh historical details. There is a nice unexpected twist at the end. Great read!

Review: Black Rabbit Hall

Black Rabbit Hall Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A rollercoaster of emotions: from joy to sadness to frustration to elation. Black Rabbit Hall is a book full of surprises and an incessant journey that spans over 30 years. This is the story of four children broken by the loss of their beloved mother and how they learn to cope with grief, change and love. Eve Chase gifts us with a beautifully written story which has the right amount of intrigue and carries you, chapters after chapters, to a remarkable ending. Enjoyable from the first to the last page.

Review: The Color of Destiny

The Color of Destiny The Color of Destiny by Julianne MacLean
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the second book by Julianne MacLean I read and I can say that so far she is consistent in her writing style and her stories are smartly developed and well written. This book has many characters and it makes it a bit challenging to keep up with all the stories at times, but the author ends the book in a beautiful way by bringing them all together in a happy and surprising ending. This is a light and fast read.
