Oct 27: “Chalvaren Rising” by Paula Millhouse, a romantic fantasy at 318 pages. Blurb from Goodreads: Twenty-five years ago, Theo Ansgar abandoned the
for a hiding
place on another world. Some called him traitor. Some, thief. Now his fully
grown daughter Mia must return to the land of her birth…and their war. It was
the elf prince Kort Elias who brought her back. Theirs was an instant
connection, an inescapable union of body, soul and sorcery, reminding Mia of
what she truly is, and what she must become. There is also Magnus, destined to
be more potent than any wyrm Chalvaren has ever seen, a three-day-old dragonlet
Mia must nurture and then ride. And then there is the Dragonstone, an artifact
of power nonpareil. Joined, they can tip the scales of battle against the
wraith-possessed forces of darkness, of Mia’s own embittered kin. Redemption
will be offered, the protected will become the protector, and an ancient
prophecy will come to fruition, but only righteous love can conquer all.
If you like a fantasy world, elves, and dragons, give this one a try. But start
with the short story, Dragonstone, first. A fun story in itself, and it might
help ease a little confusion at the beginning of this book. Kingdom
I was surprised I didn’t get as much reading finished this past week as I thought I would. But the drive from
was so pretty this time of year and
I wanted to see all the fall colors! Since I drove to Cleveland , dark and early, I got no reading in
then, either. And then, when I did have time to read, my Nook had died on me.
Wouldn’t have had that problem with a paperback. I think I’ll stick to paper
for awhile. It’s not like I’m going anywhere anyway. Homebound for the rest of
the year! Cleveland
