Special Thanks to Ms Rachel Aaron

We’d like to thank Ms Rachel Aaron for her wonderful and very funny Heartstriker Series!

My sister loved this series so much that she even drew a picture of Bethesda the Heartstriker (who doesn’t get much love)

We’re eagerly waiting for Book 4 of the Heartstriker series!

Thank you so much, Ms Aaron. My sister was really happy to learn that you liked her work! 🙂

Special Thanks to the Fantastic Ms Grace Draven

We’d like to give a Big THANK YOU to Ms Grace Draven. Thanks for taking the time to read our article!  It’s an honor to read your feedback! 🙂

Grace Draven is the author of the Wraith Kings Series and Master of Crows.

For those who like a fresh read on arranged marriages, try out “Radiance”

Princess Ildiko and Prince Brishen are married to secure an alliance. But instead of the usual whining and fighting I usually see in most books, the two decide to make the best of their situation.

They get to know each other better and become friends. And later, they fall in love despite differences in their culture and their standards of beauty (one looks ugly to the other and vice versa).

Give it a try. It’s basically two people being mature about their situation and decide to work together to make their marriage work!

You can buy it on AMAZON

 

And for those who love stories wherein a girl lives with a powerful and notorious magician (eg. Howl’s Moving Castle, Uprooted, etc), please try out the author’s book “Master of Crows”

You can buy it on AMAZON

Special Thanks to Ms Juliet Marillier

We’d like to thank the amazing Ms Juliet Marillier for taking the time to read through our article.

She doesn’t agree with my theory about retellings being fanfiction. But I really felt honored to hear her views on the matter. It’s always a joy to know that someone is listening to you. Her view may be different from my own. But I see this as a chance to broaden my perspective

If you have the chance, please do check out her wonderful books!

My special favorite is “Daughter of the Forest” about a girl whose brothers were turned into swans. And the only way to break the curse is to make them shirts out of nettles without uttering a single sound until the task is complete.

This lack of a voice leads to a lot of misunderstanding, especially as she finds herself living with her people’s enemies and married to their leader.

You can purchase this on Amazon in Kindle, Paperback, Mass Market Paperback or Hardcover.

Another book to check out is her Blackthorn & Grim series, starting with Dreamer’s Pool.

A story of the healer Blackthorn who was put in prison for speaking out against a corrupt ruler and lost her son & husband to a fire set by order of that same ruler. The man Grim is imprisoned in the cell across from hers.

And she has been subjected to harsh conditions in that prison until one day a Fae comes and makes her a deal. He’ll set her free if:

  1. She doesn’t pursue vengeance for at least 7 years
  2. She helps anyone who asks

And thus begins a new life for Blackthorn (and Grim who chooses to follow her)

It’s an amazing series guys!
