The Iron King was in my mail today. I have added a few others to the next two Media Center orders. Want to borrow my copy of Firespell?

I would love to. I am not loving that story collection that I told you abut earlier in the week and so I am between books. Thanks.

I am planning to start Beautiful Creatures tonight.

Thank-you for including my book "The Owl Keeper" in your Debut Author Challenge! Wow, there are so many amazing books out at the moment, it's really difficult to choose!

Have fun reading,

How did you like The Iron King and Firespell?

I've seen both of those in a couple of blogs and have been thinking of adding them to my TBR list.

Irish - I loved both Firespell and Iron King. I am now awaiting additional books in both series. I highly recommend both! I fell in love with the characters in both books even though they are very different. If you like fantasy they are sure to please!
