Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Elana Black. Saving the day even if she has to tear a hole in the universe to do it.
An unbeatable mythological horror has its sights set on Elana, and that’s not the worst of her problems. Gods want to use her, shadowy agents want to eliminate her, and a powerful sorcerer wants to kill her; all as she rushes to stop an event which portends the death of her best friend, Olivia. It’s all catching up with her, and just in time for Christmas. Elana is going to have to figure out how all of it is connected but she’s in over her head, outnumbered, and running out of time.
And she always thought magic would make her life easier.
There is also a limited release cover:


Author Bio:
My name is Danny Bell. I want to tell stories and avoid writing author profiles. I read—when I should be interacting with people, I named my cat after a cat I liked in a book, I’m pretty sure I saw a ghost one time—though I’ll never admit it publicly, I’m too tall for the earth, and I’ve never eaten a vegetable. I lied about the vegetable part. Wait… is someone going to read this?

Bruschetta, Greek, Philly | #WeeklyMenu Week #224

Welcome back! Its Thanksgiving break and the kids are already driving me nuts. Its only been a few hours, so this week is going to be wild. We have a full schedule of school conferences, cooking, baking and family. Holiday season is upon us!

I did some writing this week, but the most important break through in my writing was a new concept for the third book in my Hunter Saga. I think I know how I want to go with it. I'm thinking time travel, but that's another post all together. 

Enjoy this weeks menu. I've also put my Thanksgiving menu on the list as well, just in case you need some suggestions.

Caught in the Crossfire | Banished by Betsy Schow


Title: Banished
By: Betsy Schow
Genre: Fantasy / Urban Fantasy
Pages: 336
Release Date: February 1st, 2018
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire

Summary from Goodreads: In the magical conclusion to the Storymakers trilogy, which began with Spelled, can Princess Dorthea and Rexi get the land of Story its happy ending? 

While lying in the hospital in a place called Kansas, Princess Dorthea of Emerald struggles to regain her memory of the events that propelled her out of the land of Story—and to remember how to get home.

Meanwhile, in Story, Rexi, with the help of Excalibur, continues to gain confidence in writing her own tale as she fights to save the land from the Wicked Witch. But as is always the case with evil villains, she is not to be underestimated. Can Dorthea and Rexi save their home while protecting the prince they both love from getting caught in the crossfire?


Review: Oh boy! I'm excited to review this next installment in the Storymakers trilogy. As to ms. Schow's form, this book has a great mix of urban fantasy and fairy tale elements that makes her books unique. 

"It's not to the death, it's to the pain." Favorite part. It brings back memories of the Princess Bride. Also one of my favorites. 

At times, I felt a little lost with all the character changes, but that might just be me and the way that I read. I really enjoyed this story and I'm grateful to have received a preview copy.


Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
