It’s a novel about coming home, despite that home being broken. And it’s a brave triumph of a novel that readers won’t forget long after finishing it."

The Founders Trilogy: Book #1
“Foundryside is the first book in Robert Jackson Bennett’s The Foundry trilogy. Not only did this book get me out of my reading slump, it was a book that I just couldn’t stop listening to. The cover grabbed my attention and the story surpassed every expectation that I had. Foundryside is about a well-trained thief, Sancia. She’s good at what she does, and her latest job has landed her in a whole world of trouble. She’s gone from off the radar, to Tevanne’s most wanted. Sancia has to band together with some unlikely allies to make it out alive. We learn about the world Bennett created through Clef, a character who is unique and loveable from the start, who in turn learns from Sancia. Bennett created complex characters, a world that is half tech, half magic, and a story full of heart. It was a story that I couldn’t get enough of and was sad to see end. I can’t wait for the next part!”Victoria, Mysterious Galaxy Books

Violet Made of Thorns
“Loved this reverse fairy tale where the prince falls for the witch. Here, Violet, the seer (and sometimes liar), is sharp tongued, prickly and snarky. Love how she calls Cyrus, princey, or sarcastically, Prince Charming. Violet soon becomes entangled in her own lies and must find a solution before political intrigue and war devastates the kingdom. This twisted fairy tale will please those who love the original stories, told from the wicked point of view.”Audrey, Belmont Books
Lightlark: Book #1
“I don't remember the last time I had this much fun with a YA fantasy! This roller coaster of a book took me through so many twists and turns I could barely stay in my seat. I started it as an audiobook, and finished with a physical copy in my hands because I just could not consume it fast enough through my ears, but man was it just as fun both ways! Lightlark is really, truly, going to become a cult favorite among the YA crowd who adored books such as Shadow and Bone, Furyborn, and Cinder. It just has every single aspect you could possibly want from a book!”Caitlyn, Bookmarks
