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.

Aviking on Turtle Island: A Short Reads Set is up for Preorder on Amazon’s Kindle Select

What self–respecting Viking can resist raiding new lands? Jormungandr the Midgard Serpent, son of Loki the Trickster, and the jotun Ymirling, won’t pass up the chance to ravage, Turtle Island, a land unprotected by Thor the Thunderer! (Approximately 4334 words.)

I’ve been wanting to do a “Jormungandr goes Native” themed series. I couldn’t think of how to turn it into a novel, but it’ll be easy to create short story of incidents of his life on Turtle Island, my people’s name for North America. This contains the first part of the series. The length of the series will depend on reader demand, but there’re some highlights of his life I want to cover so there will be a series either way.
