AUTHOR BIO:
As a child, L.K. Malone liked to make up episodes of her favorite TV shows when she was supposed to be napping. Her favorite pastimes include reading, writing, and enjoying time with her large extended family, which includes a handsome menagerie of pets and two lovely young women she met through Denver Kids.


My Opinion:
This, by far, was an interesting story. It had so many wonderful elements going on, though for some maybe too many.
I had thought to myself at one point while reading this book, that it's a mash up of Harry Potter starring a girl instead, mixed with Roman and Greek Mythology and a dash of paranormal.
Then I wondered if it was too much, and decided not for me! I loved it!
A lot of great lessons learned throughout the story for Hadlay, and they resonate into the reader also.
Great storytelling and one I am surely to recommend.


4/5

  1. I haven't read Harry Potter, but I should (and I'm going too, someday). And when you say that it's a mash up of it, that's pretty cool. Loving the cover too. It looks so fun. :) Great review. Glad you enjoyed reading it.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
