WELCOME TO YA FANTASY BOOKS/NOVELS REVIEWERS




Become a Good Book Critic/Reviewer
When reviewing books, it is important not to have any preconceived notions about the author's personality or his work before reading the book. As such, it is best not to read too many reviews that have already been done on the book you're about to review. Also, write the book review from an analytical perspective so readers can get a detailed, but fair assessment of the book.
Mention both strengths and weaknesses of the book. This is especially beneficial if the author is arguing for a certain claim in the book. For example, if an author claims that America was not founded on Judeo-Christian values, you may say that there were elements of secularism in the founding of America, but it is still true that some of the early colonists considered religion an important part of America's founding.
Discuss the main points of the book or novel. You don't want to spend too much time focusing on the minor details when critiquing books. Readers want to know the main topics of the book. This is why it's important to take notes when reading ya books for review.
Review books on topics that may be outside your comfort zone. While you don't want to review books on topics in which you have little interest, you might be able to offer a fresh perspective on books that do not fall into your prime area of interest. For example, if your area of interest is gender issues in contemporary Europe, you can review some books that deal with gender issues in Latin America or Africa.
Discuss the author's style. Point out the intended target audience, whether the book is written in a formal or informal tone, and if the author makes the concepts clear to the reader.
Discuss the author's research methods. Explain whether or not you agree with the research subjects who were chosen for the interviews in the book. Also discuss if the research is current or outdated, and compare the author's research methods to other authors who have written on the same topic.

MG/YA Steampunk Fantasy For Review
http://amzn.to/1t7OJtB

The Kingdom Lights
By Steven VS
Publisher: Neverland Publishing Company
Published: October 2014
ISBN: 978-0990314844
ASIN: B00ONEAB4O
Genre: Middle Grade/Young Adult Steampunk/Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: EPUB, MOBI, PDF

In a world where cities float, airships sail the skies and mythical creatures are summoned in a pinch, Celes Vale is distinctly average. Living in the shadow of his talented cousin and his powerful aunt and uncle, Celes is resigned to a future of soot, factories and well, more soot.

But on the night of his twelfth birthday everything changes. A blinding light, a whispered voice and in an instant Celes becomes the first ordinary child in history to develop magic, sending him on a fast-track ticket to the greatest of the floating cities, Gardarel. Boasting grand, elegant buildings wrought from shimmering white stone, the entire city appears as though it has been built from light, and so it has come to be called the Kingdom Lights.

Though some welcome Celes, others want the dirt-ridden up-start off their city—preferably head first. Nowhere is this clearer than in the attitude and actions of the beautiful and haughty Lady Ban and her sneering nephew, Marcus Blackwood. But Blackwood, with his gang of goons and unimaginative one-liners, is soon the least of Celes’s problems.

With a little magic and a lot of detective work, Celes and his group of Scurriers and Wisps unravel the dark truth behind Lady Ban’s prim, perfect smile—an alliance to the villainous Wardens and the masked man who leads them. However, in his attempt to expose Lady Ban, Celes unwittingly stumbles onto an even darker conspiracy—a plan that could lead to the complete destruction of Gardarel itself.

Wordscapist: The Myth
By Arpan Panicker
Publisher: Urbane Publications
Published: June 2014
ASIN: B00KTDHJM0
Genre: Fantasy
Formats Availablel For Review: pdf, epub, mobi

Wordscapist (n): A legendary wordsmith, usually assumed to be male, who is rumoured to be able to shape reality to his words. Limitless in his powers, and not aligned with the Guild or the Free Word. No proof or evidence of his existence has ever been found. First known usage circa 16th century.

Everything you say is true… somewhere. But for Slick the notion of what is true is becoming very blurred indeed. He always knew the world was one of constant change. He just didn’t expect that change to include witnessing a demon tearing off the head of a stranger. That’s the kind of change that could lead to hearing voices in your head. Which is also happening rather too frequently for Slick’s liking.

But that’s what happens when you’re thrown headlong into the world of wordsmiths, where simple words can shape and reshape reality, and the legend of the Wordscapist becomes more than just an urban myth. Slick must discover the Way of the Word if he is to shape a new reality and discover his true destiny……Buckle up. Hang on. And yes, careful what you say. Everything you say is true… becomes true… somewhere.

Dragonbride
The Dragon Chronicles Book 1
By Raani York
Published: October 2014
ISBN: 978-1500232108
ASIN: B00O6COSRE
Genre: YA Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: print (limited quantities available to qualified reviewers/bloggers only), ebook

Shalima, “Daughter of the Light”, was born under special circumstances. She was raised by her aunts instead of her mother because she needed to be prepared to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Scriptures, which told that she was the only Magician on Earth.
 
Her aunts carefully prepared her for her obligations and her sacred duty. She will have to get married to the Holy Golden Dragon, the King of the Dragons, a huge Earth Dragon with magical talents. She cannot believe that she is the “Chosen One”, who has to protect the Dragon Species, all of Nature and finally the Earth. But when she turned into a teenager it seemed that the Old Scriptures were right.
 
Not only does she have to fulfill her duty by getting married to the Dragon – she will also have to go on a deadly mission to save the world from an unspeakable evil. A mission there is very little hope her party will ever return from.

YA Dysotpian/Apocalyptic Thriller For Review
http://amzn.to/10iCm5C

Last Light Falling
The Covenant, Book One
By J.E. Plemons
Publisher: Dog Ear Publishing
Published: April 2014
ISBN: 978-1457527067
ASIN: B00JFYNPPO
Pages: 336
Genre: YA Dystopian, YA Thriller, YA Apocalyptic

If your fate has already been chosen for you, would you change it? Fifteen-year-old Arena Power blindly accepts her destiny in a world filled with tragedy, chaos, and a lingering wickedness that will tempt every man's soul until the last days on Earth. Set in the United States in the year 2053, America, like most of the world, has undergone catastrophic earthquakes, famine, and an economic collapse, which has rendered the nation hopeless. It has turned to other nations, like Russia and China, to help restore what was once a world power. Unfortunately, the new America has grossly caused civil unrest that will eventually be the precursor to a much bigger war of biblical proportions.

Orphaned at the age of nine, Arena and her twin brother, Gabe, have learned to rely on each other through the toughest times. Not only do they share the same birthday and the tragic loss of their parents, they both have a birthmark on the back of their necks in the shape of a crucifix. This is only but a small sign of the destiny that will follow. On their fifteenth birthday, they receive a mystery letter and key from their estranged Uncle Finnegan. This key will unlock their fate, and it will be up to a priest, who has vowed to protect them since birth, to unfold the layers of their destiny-to undo the evil that has spoiled the world, and to help unleash God's wrath upon those who have turned from Him in the last days of history.

Last Light Falling weaves righteousness with evil, treachery with truth, and shows just how far the will of man can survive on faith alone. Arena and Gabriel's fate will determine that course of history for which has already been written. They were not born to save the world; they were chosen to prepare it for the final days.

ASIN: B00BVMAF6K
Genre: YA Paranormal
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub, ebook, mobi, kindle

CULTURE SHOCK is a witty tale of mystery and romance with a large helping of southern hospitality.

Macy Holmes is a seventeen-year-old socially-isolated introvert since her best friend's death a year ago. When her family decides to move from Manhattan to the quaint country town of Bougainvillea, Florida, Macy finds she's in a completely different world. Macy is no longer the outsider hiding behind designer clothes when she is sought out by three strange students, one of whom she is particularly interested in. The more time she spends with Chad the more things don't add up. When his true identity is finally revealed, Macy is pulled into a supernatural society with its saturation of inhabitants residing in Bougainvillea.

You would think she has enough on her plate, but no, then her dreams become infiltrated by an external magical force, Macy and her band of supernatural misfits must find the culprit behind the magic-induced nightmares. They must dodge zombie assassins, shifty shape-shifters and high school bullies in order to stop this perpetrator before Macy, her friends or her parents pay the ultimate price. Especially when Macy has the sneaking suspicion that these dreams are reality...
