While this is the second book in Ashley’s Fantasyland series, by the time I have got around to writing this review I have actually nearly finished reading them all, and I can honestly say the The Golden Dynasty is the best in the series. The best way I can describe it, and I’m going to go on a brief sojourn here, but bear with me, it’s relevant! In the first season of Game of Thrones (apologies I haven’t read the books), my favourite scenes were those between Daenerys and Kahl…

The House of the Four Winds by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory

Beginning a new series about a kingdom which has far too many daughters, The House of the Four Winds by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory forms a swashbuckling romp on the high seas. Princess Clarice is the eldest daughter of the king of Swansgaarde, a small principality hidden within the mountains. They have twelve daughters, but the new addition of a son means the kingdom will pass to him. As the nation is only small, they don’t have the money to afford a dowry for each daughter, instead bestowing each…

Wildest Dreams - Kristen Ashley

Over the past year I have fast become a Kristen Ashley fan, having read the entire of her Rock Chick and Dream Man series. I was intrigued by her Fantasyland series and when it went on offer on Amazon, I couldn’t resist. Wildest Dreams is the first in this fantasy based series, where the heroine of the book gets whisked off to a parallel universe and finds herself living in the shoes of her parallel twin. This is a world of magic, elves, dragons, and talking cats. Where technology does…

[color-box]Forged by Fate by Amalia Dillin (Fate of the Gods #1) World Weaver Press (5 Mar 2013), Ebook: 360 pages, Fantasy Romance Website • Series Listing • Amazon UK / US RATING: [/color-box] I am a fan of both mythology and history, so I was intrigued to see how Forged by Fate by Amalia Dillin would reinterpret the legends we all know and love into a new story.

The Reluctant Amazon by Sandy James (Alliance of the Amazons #1) Carina Press (Sept 2012) Ebook, 300 pages Fantasy Romance When it comes to Urban Fantasy or even Paranormal Romance, it is becoming ever more difficult to find a book with a truly unique hook. For me, Sandy James’ series Alliance of the Amazons is one of those rare gems. Instead of the usual Vampires, Werewolves and Fae (along with those that hunt them), this series is all about a group of four women taking on the mantle of “Amazon”…
