2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Grounded A.E. Radley


1) Not having read the first book, I found it hard to connect with the characters and their drama at first, but quickly fell in love with Olivia and Emily. A romantic read with some sparkling dialogue.

2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Huntress A.E. Radley


1) Okay, I loved this a lot more than I expected to going in. Really lovely characters, a nice mystery, and while 'funny' stories often fall flat for me, here the humor perfectly tickled me.

2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The City of Seven Gods (The Lost Histories #1)


1) Great world building. Obviously the author is a good writer but I wished he developed the main character more so you understand his motivation for fleeing the prince.

Kelemun was bought from his peasant parents to tend the inner sanctum of the house of Aknon, where wealthy men pay mountain sapphires to behold the beautiful servants of the god. Chosen to bring offerings to Caliph, Kelemun captures the fascination of the young prince Praxtor who has never been denied anything his heart desires.

Ja'bar was hired to roughhouse wayward proselytes for the high priest Aknon-Horheb. In Qabbat'lee, it's good paying work for a Stripeling, a jungle savage in the eyes of the city natives, and if he's stingy and stays out of trouble, it will buy him a plot of river land.

But the splendor of Qabbat'lee is a mirage disguising a grotesquerie of corruption. When Kelemun and Ja'bar's threads of fate entwine on a night of chilling betrayal, their only hope for redemption and survival may lie in one another.
