Happy Publication Day Lily Mae Walters! 📖🍾🥳
I have been looking for a Fantasy type series to read as this year I am determined to read other genres each month. So I was intrigued to try these books by an author who also writes in my usual favoured genre of romance.
I soon found myself drawn into the world of Suncroft and the mysterious creatures and history of the secret village that Josie finds herself part of.
My review for both books follows the book blurbs. 🙂
🌟 Both books are available on Kindle Unlimited 🌟
Josie James and the Teardrops of Summer
Josie James is an ordinary 13 year old until something extraordinary happens during her summer holidays. Whilst staying at her great grandmother’s cottage in the country she finds herself swept into the cursed world of Suncroft where it is perpetual winter. Her new friends believe she could be the Chosen One who it is foretold will lift the curse, but there are more pressing matters. The Teardrops of Summer – magical crystals that render the owner immortal – have been stolen. Along with her telepathic husky-dog Protector Asher and her new friends, Josie must race to find the Teardrops and prevent catastrophe for their world.
This year I have challenged myself to read out of my usual genre, so I thought this looked interesting for my Fantasy reading list. Straight away I was hooked into the story, I was fascinated to find out about Josie and her other life in Suncroft!
Love the concept of Huskies as protectors and the mystery of the cursed village.
It certainly kept me reading!
I liked that it was a shorter book, not too overwhelming to read. I was ready to drive into book two the next day!
Josie James and the Velvet Knight
“For you to find the Velvet Knight, you must solve the riddles thrice.”
A mysterious hooded figure, known only as the Velvet Knight has appeared in the cursed village of Suncroft. No one knows who he is or what he wants but when he starts leaving riddles around the village, it is time for Josie to return to Suncroft for a second time.
With Asher, her faithful husky Protector by her side, Filan, a half elf, and her great grandad, will they be able to solve the clues in time and discover his identity?
The Velvet Knight is not the only one causing problems for Josie. Her rival for the position of the ‘Chosen One’ continues to grow stronger, and now he has a Protector of his own.
What does all this mean for Josie? Is she destined to lift the wintery curse of Suncroft or will another take her place as the ‘Chosen One’?
Book two of my Fantasy adventure and I enjoyed this equally to the first one!
It was fantastic to return to Suncroft and to catch up with the characters that I had met in the first book.
Exciting happenings kept me engaged and turning the pages over!
Such brilliant characters and intriguing moments, it was a delightful read and just the right amount of chapters!
Looking forward to the next book now!
