Hello, friends! Tomorrow begins a brand new theme week focused on an author whose stories and ideas we love, Kate Elliott. We're celebrating the release of Poisoned Blade, the sequel to her first YA novel, Court of Fives, with reviews of her other books and a giveaway!

Mieneke from A Fantastical Librarian reviews Jaran, the first novel in the Books of the Jaran series. There will be gifs and feelings.


Renay reviews A Passage of Stars, the first book in The Highroad Trilogy, her second foray into Elliott's science fiction.

We'll also open our giveaway for copies of Court of Fives and Poisoned Blade!


Ira reviews Black Wolves, because everyone agreed that it was time for Renay to take a break and let someone else have a perspective.


KJ reviews Poisoned Blade, the sequel to Court of Fives, and will make everyone clamor to know what happens next.


Susan reviews Cold Magic, the first book of The Spiritwalker Trilogy, featuring lawyer dinosaurs and cool ladies. We're still confused that we didn't shove this to the top of Susan's reading pile more forcefully ages ago because it's totally her thing.

We'll also continue to have our regularly scheduled content throughout the week and share a wrap up post as the event winds down. We hope you'll join us. :D

Criticism & Debate

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
