The magicians : a novel  Lev Grossman

Sorry  -not  great.   it  took a  long time  to  get  started.   not  magical.   not  a grown up  harry  potter.   but I might  read  the second one,  because I  was promised  it gets better.

Parasite  Mira  Grant

Symbiont Mira  Grant

I was going to  explain – but it is easier  to  say  she  has an amazing  story  telling ability  – In the midst of  a  big  giant world changing  event  – she is still telling the story  of  individuals -that  would be  interesting even  without  the disaster. Book 3 comes  out  November 24th.

The darkest part of the forest / by Holly Black

 I love  Holly Black.  Dark  fairy  tales  are  her specialty.  In  this  book, there is a town  that is on  the border of a  forest  where fairy  tales  are  real – all parts  of  them.   There  is  even a  glass  coffin  with a prince  in  it.   The relationship  between  the  town and forest has been  balanced,  but suddenly  more  of the evil  side  has  visible.   Then then coffin  breaks…   

The story of Owen : dragon slayer of Trondheim E. K. Johnston

Excellent.   Way  better  than  I  expected.   Current  time  period – but  with  added  dragons.

 

pretty  sure  I  read a few  more books,  but I  just  don’t  remember ….
