I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
Although I am sure that this book was intended for younger readers, like 7+ I thoroughly enjoyed it. With its Narnia like characters, with a generous splash of Despereaux, and a dash of Nihm it captured my imagination much the way it did my children.
The main character, a dormouse who sees himself as completely insignificant in the grand scheme of things dreams of high adventure that he actually, to some extent manages to achieve. By uniting clans and vanquishing foes, in the end becomes the hero of his dreams!
I read this story to my children, and their reaction was awesome, sitting bright eyed dreaming of fairy tales and dragons! On the edge of their seat desperate to know what was going to happen next. This is what a children’s book SHOULD be like!
I fully believe this is a first rate book, for young and older alike. It helps to teach children to dream big, and always try to achieve goals over insurmountable odds! And… Continue reading

By: Ryan Stead
The book Nation Man is a fairly unique book (at least in my experience). I have read a few “almost” like the style employed by Mr. Stead, however this book is a definitely a little different. It is essentially about love, loss, and triumph over seemingly supernatural odds!
Although the first the story starts out a little slow and lackadaisical suddenly unknown supernatural forces and presto your in it!!!! Unfortunately from there it is a little all over the place with no theme helping keep you on track. It seems to bounce from The lackadasical, almost whisical to love story, then brutal, lackadaisical…….. Get the picture?
At first the intro mini story is awesome, but quiclky your spirited away on a roller-coaster of disjointed tidbits (while written beautifully) that leave you with an all over feeling of “What is going on??”
Now giving Mr. Stead his due it isn’t easy to write, (especially in this style) and I think had he taken a few different turns like a chapter here put back a few, and a chapter… Continue reading
Isn’t is absolutely stunning and also absolutely Lickable??? I agree. It is.
Life or Death? Not many people would choose death. But what if death chooses you? What if death doesn’t mean the end of your life, but the beginning?
For a Death Escort, death is life. Death is your paycheck. Death is your job.
And Charming is the best Escort the Grim Reaper has ever had.
But when you piss off the Reaper, being the best doesn’t matter. So Charming is assigned a Target who is practically impossible to kill. He knows the Reaper hopes he fails—that he’s counting on it. So Charming vows to prove him wrong. He vows to make the kill.
But someone else vows to get in his way. Someone with a big mouth, a sugar habit, and blond hair. Someone who makes his heart start beating again.
And so Charming is left holding more than one person’s fate in the palm of his hand. He thought the choice would be easy, that there really wasn’t a question at all.
He was wrong.
Life or Death?

The Land of the Fae is strong with all four courts banded as one, but yet, uncertainty still remains as they all work together to end the dark sorcerer’s evil reign. Sorcha, the one and only Winter Court princess, has a secret, a secret that she has enjoyed keeping for the past six months, but when a much awaited announcement brings her to the Spring Court, and face to face with the man in her dreams, will she be strong enough to keep up the façade of her icy exterior, or will she melt into his arms like she does in her dreams?
After formally meeting Sorcha at the Winter Ball, Drake, Summer Court prince and army leader, knew there was a fiery passion underneath her winter skin, a passion he wanted desperately to ignite with his own, but with her frigid responses towards him he’s decided to keep his distance, except how can he when his dreams feel real. Seeing her again only ignites his interest, and this time he’s not going to let his arrogance or her frosty heart stand in his way.
Through unexpected tragedy, Sorcha discovers the one thing the dark sorcerer has spent his… Continue reading
