Review: Tainted by Prophecy

Book Two of Seven

Even at its very beginning, her reign felt tainted by the prophecies that surrounded it and the death that they foretold.

They were dark, speaking of unknown evils and the potential destruction of the realm, and even the eradication of magic. It was not a destiny that Bae, the Kumari, wanted but it was the one allotted her.

Bae wished that she could deny them, call them falsehoods but she couldn’t, not when the fate of the whole realm rested on her shoulders.

It might cost her her life, or the lives of those she loved most, but she would stop at nothing to save magic, save her Ren, and hopefully save herself.

Review: Apollo

For ballet dancer Laurel Berg, no amount of artistic expression ever seemed enough to satisfy the ravenous muse within her. Painting didn’t have enough brush strokes, music didn’t seem to have enough notes.

And when magical things start happening, things she can’t rationally explain, she’ll discover there’s more to rock star Ace than an ego the size of Mount Olympus and a dazzling smile that could put the sun to shame.
