Recovered: The Shapeshifters’ Library Book 3 – a Review

A story for young and old alike, Recovered: The Shapeshifters’ Library Book 3 takes place in a fantasy world full of dog-shifters, libraries, and books.

Shipsfeather Public Library has a…

Crowns of Silver & Ash: Book 1: The Seven Stars – a Review

Historical fiction, romance, horror, and mystery/detective stories are found together in one book. Some of the stories have already linked together, and I have a feeling that before this series is over with, they will be connected in some way. I found this book to be fantastic and addictive. I will admit that the description…
