I found some anthropomorphic prompts that can almost write themselves, confirmation of Viking sheildmaidens and what could be the possible birth of a new folklore story a writer can start crafting.

Don Rodriguez: Chronicles of Shadow Valley by Lord Dunsany

3 stars.

Imagine if Don Quixote actually got to live a grand romance, with his trusty, comical manservant and won his fair lady for this story. This is probably what Don Quixote imagined for himself when he set out on his adventures. There’s some humor with the sidekick but it’s done straight. It’s a bit too dense for something that should have a whimsical treatment, but some might enjoy its richness.

 

Review: Roar by Cora Carmack

5 stars

Roar works as not only good YA but a good fantasy in general. A Princess is born into an elite line of magic practitioners but has to work to earn her magic instead of being a chosen one who has things happen too easily for her. At first she assumes this is a personal task but, later realizes the future of her land hinges on the success of her personal quest. I look forward to the further books in the series which is the highest compliment you can give to the first book in an epic fantasy.
