Review #227 // The Lost Coast – Amy Rose Capetta

The Lost CoastDanny needed a new life, and the Grays needed a certain type of witch. Danny doesn’t know what she’s getting herself into when she points to Tempest, CA on the map, but when she finally gets there, she learns that her help is needed to find Imogen, the strongest witch in Tempest.

Why this book?: I’ve been loving Amy Rose Capetta’s novels recently, including Once & Future and The Brilliant Death.

Review #215 // Once & Future (Once & Future #1) – Amy Rose Capetta & Cori McCarthy

36233085When Ari Helix and her brother Kay crash-land on Old Earth, the last thing they expect to find is a sword. The VERY last thing Ari expects is the sword to be the legendary Excaliber, and for her to be the forty-second reincarnation of King Arthur.

Why this book?: I love the original King Arthur tales, but I also love stories that include queer people, space, and magic. So imagine my joy when this landed itself in my hands.
