About the Author:

Charles Yallowitz was born and raised on Long Island, NY, but he has spent most of his life wandering his own imagination in a blissful haze. Occasionally, he would return from this world for the necessities such as food, showers, and Saturday morning cartoons. One day he returned from his imagination and decided he would share his stories with the world. After his wife decided that she was tired of hearing the same stories repeatedly, she convinced him that it would make more sense to follow his dream of being a fantasy author. So, locked within the house under orders to shut up and get to work, Charles brings you Legends of Windemere. He looks forward to sharing all of his stories with you and his wife is happy he finally has someone else to play with.

Changelings Blog Tour

Changelingscover

Changelings. They were the descendants of Man and Fae. They walked between worlds – as healers, mystics, even kings – but no more. He thought he was the last, alone and lost, until the day he saw them.

Irish teens Maureen O’Malley and Sean McAndrew are lost in time. To find a way home, they must curry favor with pirates, dodge a revolution, and defy a king out of Ireland’s deepest legends.

They are Changelings, and they have magic in their blood – magic, which will rekindle a centuries-old war that threatens to tear the very fabric of time.

Pirates and rebels and myths, oh my!

Chapter One

I sat in the grove of my own creation and stared out at a world and a people descended of mine own. As I watched, trees gave way to stone and the Many lost their claim to the priests of the One.

Then the wheel turned. The sacred trees grew around my effigy of stone and the Many came out of hiding. I sat in my grove and watched a world outside my imagination, willing it to see.

She saw. She saw me with uncanny green eyes – the green eyes of my mother and her mother before her: witch’s eyes.

Joy rose in me. It was time – time to join the world after years of solitude, time to act after centuries of stillness.

I closed my eyes and reached across the barrier, to touch my future and my past…

The Night Ones: Legacy of the Night Ones by Gwen Bristol Review

http://www.amazon.com/The-Night-Ones-Legacy-Volume/dp/1500998575/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1413421980&sr=8-1
What a charming book. I kept imagining reading this if I was a young girl. I know I would have been pulled into the story immediately. I would have identified with Lily. I know that because even now I enjoyed the story. I was cheering for Lily and Brand and Seth throughout the book as they had various adventures.

I particularly enjoyed the fact that there wasn’t a lot of graphic battling in the book. I’m not a big reader of fantasies and I really don’t need all the graphic details of bloodshed. Bristol did a great job of describing every scene in a way that even children could enjoy it.

My only disappointment with the book was that there seemed to be too many (more than a few) either missing words or duplicated words. It slowed down my reading because I would have to re-read a passage.

I gave this four out of five stars because the story was captivating, the book was easy to read, and the characters felt like friends.

The Compass Key review

http://www.amazon.com/Compass-Key-Legends-Windemere-Book-ebook/dp/B00MIB4KQE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409193769&sr=8-1&keywords=Compass+key
This is the 5th book in the Legends of Windemere series. And I think one of my favorites.

Luke, Nyx, Fizzle and others all return for another grand adventure. I felt like I got to know the characters better through the events in this book. There was no lack of excitement. Yallowitz is a master of the epic battle scenes. His descriptions make me feel as if I was in the ice chamber or the swamp with the champions. I especially liked the expanded role for my favorite – Fizzle.

If you haven’t read this series yet, I would encourage you to get started. They are a delight. Definitely a five star book.

Queen of Hearts by Samantha Warren review

http://www.amazon.com/Queen-Hearts-Risen-King-Book-ebook/dp/B00LDXYKUE/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1404358787&sr=1-1&keywords=queen+of+hearts+by+Samantha+Warren
This is the second book in the Iron Locket series. It may stand alone, but I think you really need to read book 1 first.

A fantasy story with King Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere. As the Four Queens try to reign and fight against evil, the story unfolds. Guinevere, Arthur and Lancelot may have been the first love triangle, but the new love triangle is Guinevere, Arthur and Aoife. At least Guinevere tries to make it a love triangle. Arthur has other ideas.

This is a well written book. I recommend reading the first in the series though before reading this one. And I do recommend reading this one. I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as #1 but it is a nice continuation of the story.
