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 Also discuss if the research is current or outdated, and compare the author's research methods to other authors who have written on the same topic.

On the eve of Bea Parker’s fifteenth birthday, an alien device shows up in her room promising answers about her shadowed past. Figuring it out takes her on a heart-pounding adventure across light-years to meet her destiny.

Everything Bea had ever known was a lie. Now she must find the courage to face the truth and save not only herself—but an entire planet. At almost 15, late-bloomer Bea Parker has just discovered that her aunt, uncle and cousins—the only family she’s ever known—aren’t actually related to her and don’t know anything about her birth parents. A strange, high-tech device shows up in her room in the middle of the night with a note promising answers about her shadowed past. The only person she can turn to for help is Calvin, school genius—and total nerd. This alien technology leads Bea and Calvin on a heart-pounding adventure across lightyears leaving behind Earth, and everything she knows, to meet her destiny.

Exorcising Aaron Nguyen
The Millroad Academy Exorcists Series, Book 1
By Lauren Harris
Publisher: Pendragon Press
ASIN: B00EPVT31C
Genre: YA Paranormal, Mystery
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub, mobi

The murder of Millroad Catholic Academy’s resident genius, Aaron Nguyen, shuts down student life at the boarding school in rural North Carolina…for about a week. With the resilience of youth, the student body bounces back, and the memory of murder is nothing but a streamer of caution tape fluttering in the breeze. Unfortunately for them, Aaron’s spirit has some resilience as well.

Hoping for spontaneous romantic combustion with her ghost-seeing best friend Hiroki, school gossip journalist Georgia Collins agrees to help bring Aaron’s murderers to justice and set the vengeful spirit free…but it’s not quite the close encounter she’s hoping for.

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.
