In the strange

labyrinth of pipes on the planet called Dark, things are falling apart. Dun doesn’t want to be a hero, he just wants to find an answer to the terrifying dreams he’s been having. But the answers, the real answers, are going to take him places he’s never imagined and tear him from the only home he’s ever known.

With a half finished map from his missing father, an old friend, a new friend and the mysterious Myrch to guide him, he journeys through parts of his world he’s never imagined. Are his dreams real foretellings? Who can he trust to be who they say there are? What are the strange forces that seem to be literally pulling their world apart?

As he travels through a world that is much bigger than he thought it was, what he won’t know will kill him. And everyone he knows.

I’m listening to the audiobook today in order to review it for my tour stop with The Audiobookworm Promotions coming up on Sunday. As I type this (on Tuesday afternoon) I have about an hour left, and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. We’ll see how that review turns out!

A Song Below Water

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Page Count: 288

Tavia is already at odds with the world, forced to keep her siren identity under wraps in a society that wants to keep her kind under lock and key. Never mind she’s also stuck in Portland, Oregon, a city with only a handful of black folk and even fewer of those with magical powers. At least she has her bestie Effie by her side as they tackle high school drama, family secrets, and unrequited crushes.

But everything changes in the aftermath of a siren murder trial that rocks the nation; the girls’ favorite Internet fashion icon reveals she’s also a siren, and the news rips through their community. Tensions escalate when Effie starts being haunted by demons from her past, and Tavia accidentally lets out her magical voice during a police stop. No secret seems safe anymore—soon Portland won’t be either.

As I mentioned on Monday, I lucked into a “skip the line” copy of the audiobook through Libby. I had 3 days left to finish it or resume waiting for my actual hold, which I won’t get until next month, and I’m currently 50% through. I should finish it, though, because after Dark I don’t have any other audiobook commitments until the 18th. I’m loving this one so far!

Goddess in Time
Women of Time Book One
by Adriadne LeFox

Genre: Historical Fiction, Fantasy
Page Count: 200

Myths and Legends have always inspired me. I especially love the King Arthur legends. The knights, ladies, valor, chivalry, and trust between them. I have never been one to trust easily, but with these legends, I feel like I am a part of their world somehow. As a college student, I chose to study these myths and legends because I want to find out if they are real or not.

So my journey began, by traveling to England. I have heard there is a professor there who has found the remains of what used to be Arthur’s castle. What I actually find when I get there is more than just the remains of a castle, it is the start of a new adventure.

In a land of myth and magic, what awaits me is more than I could have ever imagined…

I’ve barely started reading this one (as I type this on Tuesday afternoon) and the review is due on Thursday for a tour with Silver Dagger Book Tours. It seems to be an Arthurian story but with a queen rather than a king.
