I am excited to share with you all the official cover for the new YA Post-Apocalyptic Western ALARUM! The first book in the Walking Shadows Saga (a series of standalone novels linked by the altered world they’re set in) by author Talis Jones comes out October 30, 2018! I’ve been lucky enough to read an eARC and I’ll admit that this isn’t really my go-to genre but I was surprised by how quickly I read it! Definitely a surprise read for me this year! It’s a bit Book of Eli meets Godless meets The Knife of Never Letting Go. Be sure to join the Facebook group Talismonium to receive exclusive teasers and excerpts leading up to the release!  Continue reading

Caleb’s Window | (book roulette)

book roulette post

I am an avid reader and a dedicated book blogger but sometimes I get requests from authors to review their books and unfortunately I just don’t have the time in my busy schedule and/or perhaps it’s just not quite my thing. So every once in a while instead of reading/reviewing their book, I’ll agree to put together a little post to help pass along the word in case any of you readers out there will find it interesting. This time it seems the book roulette has landed on a Historical Fiction novel. It sounds like the type of story that might stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page. This post includes an excerpt and giveaway! Here we go…  Continue reading

Blurb:

“When Rin aced the Keju, the Empire-wide test to find the most talented youth to learn at the Academies, it was a shock to everyone: to the test officials, who couldn’t believe a war orphan from Rooster Province could pass without cheating; to Rin’s guardians, who believed they’d finally be able to marry her off and further their criminal enterprise; and to Rin herself, who realized she was finally free of the servitude and despair that had made up her daily existence. That she got into Sinegard, the most elite military school in Nikan, was even more surprising.

But surprises aren’t always good. Continue reading

Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of 18th century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles.  Continue reading
