The Summoner, by Gail Martin, is Book One of the Chronicles of the Necromancer. With a book cover this gorgeous, I had high expectations from the start. And I am happy to say that I was more than impressed.
Demons Are Forever: Confessions of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom, by Julie Kenner, is the 3rd in the Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom series.
When I received a review copy of The Serpent Bride, Book One in the DarkGlass Mountain saga by Sara Douglass, I was a bit apprehensive of the large book with 627 pages. But the chapters are extremely short, and it’s very easy reading. And I was hooked on the story by chapter one.
