Indie-Mas is my annual recap of all the great independently-published books I read in the previous year. I like to take this time to share the love–both by helping promote great indie books and giving them away! So without further ado…
On the third day of Indie-Mas, my author gave to me:
A feisty woman who can raise the dead
My favorite kind of love triangle
A New Orleans-based Fantasy with a Snarky Fairy
An Elemental Epic Fantasy
One of my greatest thrills is when I follow an author on Twitter, read their book, and love it. I’ve been twitter-friends with Jen for a number of months, and I was so excited when I saw her trilogy was complete. I can say that this was one book that kept me guessing, all the way to the end.
It has all the typical pieces of an epic fantasy: A girl swept to a castle from a village far away, political intrigue, a tyrant king, pretty dresses, magic and sorcery. There’s a big twist at the end that leaves you begging for the next book in the series. Definitely one of my new favorite books, and I can’t wait to see what Jen puts out next!
My favorite steampunk fantasy of 2016 was The Alchemists of Loom!
Dark So Deep! J Leigh Bralick FTW!
My favorite steampunk fantasy book I’ve read in 2016 is a toss up between three classics adapted for children: H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine and Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around The World in 80 Days.
Looking forward to Tara Sims’ Timekeeper which was just recently released.
Haven’t ventured into that genre yet… Very interested in checking it out though.
