Every so often when i’m reading a book i think back to other books i’ve read.. the events of that previous book overshadowing my current reading..
This is when i know I’ve found an author i really enjoy.
Today i’d like to highlight the brilliant work by Charlotte E. English who has to be one of the nicest authors i’ve reviewed since i started my blog.
I’d actually owed some of Charlotte’s work before starting the blog and for me it was a big buzz to have her notice my little corner of the web. I do what i do out of the sheer love of reading but to know your comments are appreciated makes everything so worthwhile.
Why do a spotlight you may ask? Simple.. There’s just not enough time in the day to read every book i want to.. and i want the author to see i support them and love their work even if i can’t read their book straightaway
Charlotte is a brilliant fantasy writer and her books have always been a pleasure to read. In all honesty her work has to be some of the best fantasy i’ve read and as my favorite genre i have high expectations. What i really enjoy about her books is how easily she sets the scene andsucks you into her world. She always leaves me with the fuzzy feeling in my brain as i imagine the world she creates and needless to say i’m always left wanting to read more of her work.
The Malykant Mysteries is a series of 4 short stories and it amazed me how much Charlotte managed to fit in such a short space of time.. a rich and detailed story that i just couldn’t help but love. You can see my review here – The Malykant Mysteries Review If you are looking for a short read then i can’t recommend this enough.
I also really enjoyed the Draykon series.. here’s the blurb for book one!
When shy and retiring Llandry Sanfaer discovers a mesmerising new gemstone, she suddenly becomes the most famous jeweller across the Seven Realms. Demand for the coveted stone escalates fast; when people begin dying for it, Llandry finds that she herself has become a target.
Lady Evastany Glostrum has her life in pristine order. Prestigious, powerful and wealthy, she is on the verge of crowning her successes with the perfect marriage. But when her closest friend is murdered for the jewellery she wears, Eva is drawn into the mystery surrounding the curious “istore” gem.
The emergence of the stone is causing chaos across the Seven. Gates between the worlds are opening at will, pulling hordes of creatures through from the shadowy Lower Realm and the glittering Uppers. As Eva works to discover the culprit behind the spreading disorder, Llandry must learn the truth about her precious istore stone — before she herself becomes a victim.
I highly recommend you check it out and if you like it as much as me i recommend you buy the complete box set of three books as it will save you a little money in the long run 🙂
If you are looking for a new book take my advice and have a look at Charlotte’s work.. you’ll not be disappointed
Have a good weekend everyone 🙂
