My Review: This book needs no high praise from me, as soon as you read the first page you enter into a world born from an imagination that is truly unique. The characters are fantastic to follow and there are a lot of wonderful surprises.
I had a wonderful read I cried and laughed, There isn't much more I can say this one was a definite page turner and I just know you will enjoy every moment of it and beg for more.
My rating: 5/5 roses
Guest Post by M.M Shelly
Mythology in YA books
HI Everyone, I'm M.M. Shelley and I would like to thank Bajan Rosa for having me as a guest today. So please pour yourself a cup of your favorite Latte and if you're at work, hang up your "On Break" shingle as we take five.
I may love writing young adult fantasy and Sci-fi, but it doesn't mean that it's my first love. Growing up I stirred more towards mysteries written by the great Agatha Christie and the clever Edgar Allen Poe. Slowly but surely I found authors like Johanna Lindsay and Julie Garwood and those two quickly became some of my favorite authors. Sure you might wonder, what an interesting mix of authors, but really isn't a good book defined by losing yourself in the story?
I enjoy mixing a good mystery with romance and sometimes paranormal romance. That I've found myself reading books by Dianne Day and Heather Graham who also writes under the name Shannon Drake.
What I like about the young adult genre is that everything is new, exciting and the characters are always rushing, in a hurry and are willing to hold on tightly to what they want regardless of the consequences. There is an innocence that at times can be heartbreaking and enduring.
With the young adult genre there is more room for possibilities as they are ready and willing to believe in the possibilities of what we all enjoy; intrigue, magic and most importantly, love.
With my book, Mishap & Retribution I focus on the suspense, and the intrigue, what will one do for the ones they love? Sometimes the answer is not what you may always expect and that's what I enjoy about writing young adult; is that you learn to expect the unexpected.
So who are some of your favorite authors? I'd love to hear from you!
