Of my favorite things, one is the Retro Hugo Awards. Digging through treasures to find which ones were published in the proper year in order to nominate them is always a grand time!

Review of Zahrah the Windseeker by Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu

 

A beautifully written tale about a magical land, a young girl, her best friend, growth, hope, bravery, and defying expectations.

Although this is listed as a children’s book, all ages will enjoy it.

Excellent. Highly recommend.

Cover The Armored Saint

Review of The Armored Saint

Review of The Armored Saint by Myke Cole

First in a trilogy, this story grabs hold of your heart, your mind, your fears, and your hopes, then twists them into new shapes. Whenever you think you know the direction the story is moving, it changes. You won’t want to put the book down.

The second book is currently scheduled for release on September 18, 2018.

5 stars.
