Sacrifice by Brigid Kemmerer

Sacrifice by Brigid Kemmerer

January 12, 2015 Reviews 4 ★★★½

Sacrifice is the final book in the Elementals series by Brigid Kemmerer. When we met the Merrick brothers in Storm, they were a very different group of young men than the ones we hang out with in this book.

Words of Radiance is absolutely breathtaking, and fantasy fans are missing out if they’re not already reading The Stormlight Archive. I love this story-world and its characters, and am excited because there are eight more books to come! I can’t wait to see what Sanderson dishes up next!

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is one of the cutest anthologies I have ever read. Featuring talented YA authors like Stephanie Perkins (who has also edited the anthology), Laini Taylor, Holly Black and Rainbow Rowell, this book will steal your heart!

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

December 18, 2014 Reviews 3 ★★★★★

A wonderful short story that lacks none of the magic, wonder, and darkness of a GRRM book, The Ice Dragon will capture the imaginations of many readers. Don’t let its small size fool you: just because it’s short and illustrated doesn’t mean it’s a children’s book.
