Mini-Review: “Death Vigil” by Stjepan Šejić

Death Vigil is a graphic novel by Stjepan Šejić about the Grim Reaper and her army who fight against a great darkness that threatens our world. Stjepan Šejić is the same author who wrote Sunstone, and I’d been itching for a chance to try some of his other work. Death Vigil does not disappoint.

The Crown of the Queen by Jeffe Kennedy is a novella that takes place in between two fantasy romance trilogies in the Twelve Kingdoms world.  You can find it in the For Crown and Kingdom duo with another novella by Grace Draven.

Right now, I’ve got a pile of books on my Goodreads “Currently Reading” shelf that I’ve read but haven’t gotten around to reviewing.  Some were from my blogging hiatus at the tail end of grad school, and others were from times when life got hectic.  I’d like to take a more organized and scheduled approachRead more

Mini Review: “Downside Girls” by Jaine Fenn

  Last fall and winter, I took a long hiatus from blogging.  Balancing a new job, grad school, and my blog was just too much, and I returned to a more normal blogging routine this spring.  During my hiatus, I read a lot of books that I didn’t get a chance to fully review.  AsRead more
