#BookReview: A Blade So Black by @ElleOnWords @ImprintReads with @RiseOfTheReader

About the Book:

The first time the Nightmares came, it nearly cost Alice her life. 

Now she's trained to battle monstrous creatures in the dark dream realm known as Wonderland with magic weapons and hardcore fighting skills. 

Yet even warriors have a curfew.

Life in real-world Atlanta isn't always so simple, as Alice juggles an overprotective mom, a high-maintenance best friend, and a slipping GPA. 

Keeping the Nightmares at bay is turning into a full-time job. 

But when Alice's handsome and mysterious mentor is poisoned, she has to find the antidote by venturing deeper into Wonderland than she’s ever gone before. 

And she'll need to use everything she's learned in both worlds to keep from losing her head . . . literally.

#BookReview: Sweet Black Waves by Kristina Perez #ReadByTheSea2018

Reviewed By: Jessica P. 
Publisher: Imprint
Recommended Age: Young Adult 
Genre: Fantasy, Retelling 
About the Book: Not you without me, not me without you.

Two proud kingdoms stand on opposite shores, with only a bloody history between them. 

As best friend and lady-in-waiting to the princess, Branwen is guided by two principles: devotion to her homeland and hatred for the raiders who killed her parents. When she unknowingly saves the life of her enemy, he awakens her ancient healing magic and opens her heart. Branwen begins to dream of peace, but the princess she serves is not so easily convinced. Fighting for what's right, even as her powers grow beyond her control, will set Branwen against both her best friend and the only man she's ever loved. 

Inspired by the star-crossed tale of Tristan and Eseult, this is the story of the legend’s true heroine: Branwen. For fans of Graceling and The Mists of Avalon, this is the first book of a lush fantasy trilogy about warring countries, family secrets, and forbidden romance.
