I've been waiting a long time for this book to be up on amazon and waiting for reviews! This book is GORGEOUS! From the very first page, I was captivated by the stunning imagery. The artist is in a class of her own. I was blessed enough to meet the artist at a book signing event in Chattanooga, and we've since come to be friends. She has other Mangas out as well that I would highly recommend.
Now on to the story element: This book is just part one. I think there is going to be 5 parts in total. The story follows a young man who has just come to learn of his family's curse. Horrifying creatures from a world unseen are attempting to destroy his family. Two beings have now come to protect them, but they are the last ones of their kind available to defend this family. Will they survive?
I'm looking forward to the rest of the releases. A lot of this story is based on Irish folklore -- things I'm not overly familiar with but am looking forward to discovering!

This is a book I get to talk about as a Mom!
Elina Ballerina is a tale about a little elephant girl who just does not seem to fit in with her class. While the other girls are so elegant and poised, she is all trunks and stumps. But there's something Ms. Elina does not quite know about dancing -- or about herself for that matter. Something that changes everything from the way she views herself to dancing as a whole.
I love this book, and little Joey enjoyed listening to it too! The pictures are cute and well done. I'm looking forward to more from this author!
That was short. But it's a kid's book. :D

I am accepting submissions for reviews at this time. I am primarily interested in thrillers, suspense, magical realism, dystopians, and light sci-fi. I have a taste for the grim and love novels that make you think. Leave me haunted but hopeful.
