Review of Flamecaster-Cinda Williams Chima

I loved this author's Seven Realms series and in this novel, she brings back some characters from that series but also introduces many from the new generation.  And the new characters, especially Ash and Jenna, are wonderful!  You instantly care about them and root for them to overcome the ruthless king and his cronies.  This book is full of thrills, magic dark & light, complicated politics between the kingdoms and an ending that will have you crying for more.  I can't wait for the sequel to this epic fantasy, and I'm sure you'll feel the same.  4 Elves - Highly recommended for teens and adults

Review of Me Before You-Jojo Moyes

Louisa has an ordinary life; she lives with her parents, works in a small restaurant and dates a man she's not too excited about.  When she loses her job, she is desperate to find work right away to help out her parents and is hired as a caregiver for a man who is a quadriplegic after an accident.  This man, Will, was extremely successful, traveled the world and participated in extreme sports before the accident and doesn't want to live now that he is confined to a wheelchair.  Louisa's job is to convince Will to live.  4 Elves - Highly recommended for adults and teens
