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 Also discuss if the research is current or outdated, and compare the author's research methods to other authors who have written on the same topic.

The Space In Between
By Jen Minkman

ISBN: 978-1500775100
ASIN: B00N778O0Q
Genre: Young Adult / Paranormal Romance
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub, ebook, mobi

When Moira helps out her sister and brother in a Wiccan ritual on Halloween, the last thing she expects is to be swept away to a mystical wilderness. Sitting within the stones of the ancient circle of Penmaenmawr, Wales, she's convinced it's an illusion. But the dark-haired, handsome man with amnesia that Moira meets during her trance cannot be blinked away like a dream.

Hayko, the mysterious stranger, won’t let go. After returning home from her stone circle adventure, she is beckoned back night after night to the outlandish dreamland by an invisible force. But the hardest part isn't having to fight the terrifying creatures of these nightmares--it's realizing she’s falling for a guy without a past who isn’t real.

What if you really can fall in love with the man of your dreams?

When a portal to another world cracks open just outside a small town in Minnesota, it sets off a series of events forever changing the lives of two boys; one boy is chosen to lead a world to peace while the other one is chosen to tear it apart.

Simon Whittaker lives an ordinary teenage life on Earth until his best friend, Jessica Wells, and her family takes him on a last-minute camping trip. There, amongst towering pines, Jessica confesses a secret; her family has been watching over Simon his entire life because he is the key to another world’s salvation, and now someone has come from that world to kill him. Amidst a whirlwind of unanswered questions, doubt, and curiosity, Simon is given the Ring of Affinity and then is led through a magic portal into the land of Magnanthia.

Jak Jakobsin, another teenager from Earth, is pulled through a portal by two of Bedlam’s demented soul seers sent to capture Simon. The soul seers are impressed with what they see in Jak, so they offer him up to the overlord. Obsessed with his discovery of magic spells, power, and control, Jak quickly acclimates to his new environment. Bedlam’s overlord plans to use Jak, along with Bedlam’s undead army, to build a force so powerful that the guardians and the great kingdom will perish and Magnanthia will be his forever.

The Patchwork Girl
By Sebastian Bendix
ASIN: B00G2R5PDW
Genre: YA, Dark Fantasy, Steampunk, Sci-Fi, Horror
Formats Available For Review: PDF, EPUB, MOBI, KINDLE

What could be worse for a 16 year-old girl than waking up to find that your skin has transformed into a bizarre, calico patchwork? For Padget Beaumont, the answer is: a lot. Looking like a freak turns out to be the least of her problems when Padget is chased from high school into a nightmare dimension where science is superstition and the supernatural is real. There she finds herself caught between an arcane city full of vampires, demons and witches and a religious zealot intent on burning it all down. Her only hope is to find her father, an expatriate scientist hiding out somewhere among the towering Gothic spires and dank, twisting catacombs. But when Padget falls in love with a roguish demon possessed by the soul of a troubled teenaged boy, she must confront the most terrifying truth of all to save him: who she really is.

The Patchwork Girl is a dark fantasy novel for young adults that will appeal to fans of Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The adventures of The Patchwork Girl promise to draw the reader in with action, romance and fantasy while at the same time addressing the real-world issues that trouble both young and adult readers alike.

Prophase: A Present Tale
By Mitchel Street
Published: March 2014
ISBN: 978-0991554300
Pages: 310
Genre: Fantasy, YA Fantasy

Piper Walker, a high school senior, has seen her share of hard times. At a young age, she lost her mother to breast cancer shortly after her brother Charlie was born. Raising her baby brother under the wrathful eye of an abusive and alcoholic father, she relies heavily on her small, but tight core of friends. Lisa, her best friend from kindergarten, and Chris, her longtime boyfriend, help to keep her above water. Along with her friends, Piper’s elderly neighbor, Ester, and her lynx point Siamese cat, Jazz, become the extended family she never had.

Even before her mom died, Piper always felt different. She was opposite of her popular best buddy Lisa, and didn’t enjoy doing what most other teenage girls liked to do. She wasn’t much for fixing up and thought hanging out was boring. Music and nature were her muses. Piper grew up next to a forest with countless paths, one of which led to the high school; the others to myriad of seasonal wonders. Piper spent countless hours in the woods exploring and finding solace in the trees, wild flowers, and every kind of animal. Although somewhat shy and insecure of her voice, Piper was lead vocals and a passionate bass player for a garage band called ‘The Coat Tails’ that consisted of Lisa, Chris, and their close friend Josh. Having never sounded better, they were sure to win the senior talent show.

After a Spring Fling dance, a near-death experience prematurely rebirths Piper to her destiny, for not even she knows who she really is. Her identity has remained buried deep for her protection. She awakens to a dimension where light laden with emotions emits from everything around her. Overnight, Piper and her world are transformed into something radically different. What she thought was real was only the beginning, a thin veneer to actual reality. Universal truths are turned upside down. She wakes to a magical world with an ancient history and kingdoms of races. Life becomes way more beautiful, complex, and breathtaking than she ever imagined.

A menagerie of supernatural and metallic gleaming mythical characters come to assist Piper to take her first steps in her new world and keep her safe. The realm of brilliant auras, feelings, and endless color surround her creating a language she doesn’t understand. She begins a long journey to discovering and mastering her powers and senses that defy fantasy. Riding gravity waves, casting spells, and leaping to exotic locations become her new curriculum.


Amongst the unspeakable beauty, unknown danger, and the desire to find out who she really is, Piper stumbles upon an unexplainable, first-time love that becomes the only thing that she can cling to in her stormy and unexpected life. From the first time his voice dances on her ear drums, she is taken by something wonderfully unreal.

The Six, and the Crystals of Ialana
The Ialana Series Book 1
By Katlynn Brooke
ASIN: B00KK5IPN4
Published: May 2014
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Is it magic, or is it science? The Six are about to find out. Life will never be the same for them again as the collective dreams that six young people share turns into a nightmare. Three boys are kidnapped by soldiers in a mandatory draft: Jarah, a baker’s boy, and best friends Adain and Blaidd. They are helped by a soldier, Tristan, whose treasonous actions find them all on the run from the vicious Captain Eglog. As they flee towards the mountains, they are joined by three girls: Kex, a young girl whose parents have threatened murder if she refuses to marry, Tegan, the shoemaker’s daughter, and Djana, a tomboyish socialite from the City of Rhiannon. They encounter a shape-shifter named Irusan under whose tutelage they begin to understand that they can never return to their previous lives.

The young people learn that if they do not recover the Healing Crystal and insure its security, all of Ialana could be pitched into darkness. And when they learn what their true identity is, a betrayal that none of them expected to happen again threatens to defeat them.

The Six will find adventures they never dreamed about; adventures that take them to dark places where danger lurks at every step. They will also discover the answers to who they really are: answers that will shock and amaze them as their journey unfolds.

The Six, and the Gardeners of Ialana
The Ialana Series Book 2
By Katlynn Brooke
ASIN:
Published: August 2014
Genre: YA Fantasy

In the second of the Ialana series, The Six have escaped the destruction of the Citadel in Rhiannon, but they find themselves caught in a power struggle between the competing rulers of Ialana. Unable to complete their healing mission, to heal those who were genetically altered by crystal manipulation, they flee the Galonese War-Lord, Ortzi, and attempt a dangerous journey back to their homes in northern Ialana.

Trapped by malevolent creatures, hunted by a monster who seeks them for reasons of its own, and on the run from a king and a conniving shape-shifter, there seems to be no place of safety for them.

Will they find the mysterious abode of the Gardeners? Who are the Gardeners, and what is their purpose for the Six? Will The Six be able to find Queen Catrin, who sets off on a quest of her own, or will Catrin run afoul of her husband, King Brenin, before she can find The Six?

In the Gardeners of Ialana, the Six explore the mysteries of healing, elemental command, and through many trials, learn their true purpose in life.
