Book Review: The Song Caster (Book Four of The Wilderhark Tales)

Where to Find The Song Caster:
B&N Nook
The dull doom of impending marriage at his back and a reticent royal at his side, remarkable minstrel Gant-o’-the-Lute is off in search of adventure, and you can be sure he finds it – complete with much music, magicked maidens, and a dangerous power so great, Lute might for once find himself outmatched.


Whoo hoo! I got my hands on an ARC! *cough* Ahem. *recomposes self*

The Song Caster is the fourth book of the Wilderhark Tales (1:The Swan Prince, 2: The Stone Kingdom, 3: The Seventh Spell). As I've mentioned before I've been fortunate enough to follow Miss Shipley since she started The Swan Prince and I haven't been let down by her stories yet.

Woot! This book promised to feature my latest favorite character, Gant-o'-the-Lute aka Jackillien (Sorry Villem and Edgwyn, I still love you too). I had expected it to be solely through Jackillien's point of view but Shipley has changed it up again and it's told mainly through two points of views which is was fine with me. To be honest, I was a little disappointed that it wasn't just through Lute's point of view but that's just selfishness on my part. Having the two point of views proved to be a good decision as I read on in the book. It was unexpected but quite pleasant when I saw who she brought back. (Hint: It's someone from Rosalba's previous encounters.) I grew to like the other protagonist as well. I enjoy how Shipley continues to bring back old characters, even the ones we've forgotten about or declared as unimportant or just plain gone.

Book Promo: Outsider Cover Reveal and Book Sale for @beccajcampbell's Exciting New Adult #Paranormal #Thriller Series FLAWED #2

Everyone! I'm pleased to be a part of the cover reveal for Miss Becca Campbell's latest book Outsider!

This is the second book in her Flawed Series. I was fortunate enough to read her first book and you can read my review for those curious souls. I do like the dilapidated building in the background and the curious male on the front.

If you've read her previous book then I suspect that it is Josh since he is the protagonist in the book but as most of you know, you never should judge a book by its cover alone. ^_~

This cover is just as lovely as her first book and I hope the book will be as good as the first if not better. :D What do you all think? Let us know!

Welcome to the cover reveal for Flawed: Outsider (book number two in the Flawed series) by Becca J. Campbell! This gorgeous cover art was designed by the talented Steven Novak.

Is He Only Normal?

After a psychopath tried to kill his friends, Josh Schuyler figured 'normal' was far off. The real problem: Josh's friends have all acquired supernatural abilities, while he's still the same average guy.

Josh has always believed he was destined for greatness, but he's been out of college for two years without a clue of his purpose. After watching his friends and siblings develop superhuman traits, he wonders if he might be meant for something grand, too. Can Josh even hope for an extraordinary event in his own future? And how long must he wait for this transformation - if there is one?

When Alex met the Schuylers, she was grateful for new friends to whisk her away from her lonely life in California and give her an escape from her divorced, bickering parents and aimless future. But Josh won't drop his defenses, and Alex isn't sure she wants to trade her old life for this new, uncertain one.

Nicodemus has an amazing ability he's been milking for years to get whatever or whomever he wants. Things are going great until a young woman - Alex - inadvertently busts his latest swindle. Nic is furious when he discovers his power has been disabled, and he vows to find her in order to wreak his vengeance. She will be punished. All he needs is a little help from his friend, Ethan Black.

Josh has been waiting for his big break, or for the chance to be a hero, or just the opportunity to stand out in his own, extraordinary way.

Will Josh discover his purpose in time to stop Nic?
