2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Dawn's Light (Duskblade #1)

Dawn's Light (Duskblade #1) by Shannon Blair

I loved the quiet intensity between Moranthus and Gerrick, but also the back history, never intrusive and subtly developed.

2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Blood Moon (A Wolves of Wolf's Point Novel)

Blood Moon (A Wolves of Wolf's Point Novel) by Catherine Lundoff

This was a definite step up from the first book, more detailed and with more depth. The plot was stronger and the characters just felt more real/genuine (and super likeable).

2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Sort of Dead

Sort of Dead by Rob Rosen

What a fantastic, hilarious story this is! Being the first book I read from this author I was unaware of their writing, nor if I'd appreciate it. I'm so glad to have been given this book to judge. It had me laughing several times throughout. I'm so glad I live alone since I laughed so hard until the wee hours of the night. I stayed awake reading until 5am when I couldn't keep my eyes open. Any book that makes me laugh, especially as hard as I did this one, is a winner in my opinion. There were so many twists and turns, each more hilarious than the previous it kept me entertained throughout. I'm definitely looking forward to reading other books by Rob Rosen. I read from a reviewer on Goodreads that funny stories are his MO. Thanks for allowing me to read this wonderful story, Elisa!

2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The King’s Dragon (Fire and Valor #1)

The King’s Dragon (Fire and Valor #1) by W.M. Fawkes & Sam Burns

The King's Dragon snatched me up from the first page and didn't let go until it was done with me. The characters are complex and interesting, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and quirks. The fast-paced story-telling takes us through each point of view to build an intriguing story, set in a well-painted fantasy world with its own history. I can feel that there are many details building to the events of the next books. The romances are fun and visceral. Just an all around great read that I truly enjoyed, though I would recommend starting it only when you have a good day or so to let yourself get swept away.

2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Where The Hell Is Tessa Ryker?

Where The Hell Is Tessa Ryker? (Rachel Cord Confidential Investigations) by R.E. Conary

Well written well paced, a somewhat cozy (except for the very start), but nonetheless gripping thriller-mystery. Although part of a series this book can be read as a stand-alone. The characters are well fleshed out and likable. The conflicts are well developed.
