Earth Girl by Janet Edwards
Earth Girl by Janet Edwards
5.0 out of 5 stars YA?, 13 Jan 2013
I'm not sure how books get classified as YA - is it because the main character is young, or because there's no sex and violence? Certainly sex and violence would not have added anything to this book which was a thoroughly enjoyable read for an "old" adult. The description of the future world and its view on history was extremely interesting, and the characterisation, though a bit predictable, was believable and made you want to know more about the people. Although this is a standalone story, there is huge potential for more "episodes", and I see there is to be a sequel in August - I'm looking forward to it.

Prince of Hazel and Oak (Shadowmagic) by John Lenahan

I downloaded this kindle book immediately after reading the first Shadowmagic book, and luckily for me it was in the Summer Sale so going at a knock down price. I do worry that the author must be a bit disappointed to see his work so undervalued. It is an excellent sequel, again well written and draws you in to the characters lives. A little predictable in places, but that just adds to the enjoyment, making you feel a little superior! I am really looking forward to the next one - please let there be a next one!
