Feel free to… Continue reading Christmas Tag #Festive #Fun

#GenreMashup Week #BookReview 4: Oath Breaker by @ShelleyWilson72 #YAFantasy #humor

Amazing first review for OATH KEEPER due out on 27th November! It’s made my week.

As promised in my genre mashup post here, my next review is by Shelley Wilson, who rewards readers who’ve been waiting (impatiently, in my case at least!) for the sequel to her YA paranormal superhero coming of age romance Oath series with her new release, Oath Keeper. Worth the wait!

This genre mashup is a wonderful example of the trope definer: the fairy tale. As a lead to my review of Oath Breaker, the first book in this little series, I compared it to Little Red Riding Hood, and I hope you won’t mind a repeat of that intro.


New superhero? Little Red Riding Hood already has the cape…

WOW! Little Red Riding Hood nails every genre, and then goes on to own YA Fantasy.
