Summer in Bliss by Freda Ann

154 pages, Summer romance, Karen's Magic Review This book came from someone on Instagram. They reviewed it and said how much they loved it. So from that I downloaded it.

The Gift Legacy by JP McLean

It was four years ago that I read a book series containing six books like this one. They are truly special when you come across them. Being a book blogger, I prefer shorter readers, yet these books were over 300 pages long, as were the The Fiona Griffiths series by Harry Bingham. The amount of… Continue reading The Gift Legacy by JP McLean

Circle of Betrayal, the review

Karen's Magic Review I read and reviewed two previous books by this author, and she has followed on with another really great book cover. I liken book covers to perusing paintings in an art gallery. Except they have the added excitement of looking inside to experience the story your imagination has just conjured up. That… Continue reading Circle of Betrayal, the review

Burning Lies by JP McLean

332 Pages, Fantasy, Thriller, Karen's Magic Review Having enjoyed Secret Skies and Hidden Enemy, I didn’t know what to expect from this story because it couldn't possibly be as good as the previous two.

Ashes in Winter by K M Cannon

320 pages, Dystopian Karen's Magic Review It’s not often that I read a book twice, especially on request. The Rangers of Waldren was a series of four books if I remember correctly, and I read them over two years ago. They were great dystopian stories that followed a band of survivors when something catastrophic happens.… Continue reading Ashes in Winter by K M Cannon


Save Me by M C Frank
