This is the second book in a series called Summoner.

 

Fletcher is on trial for a trial he didn’t commit, simply because he doesn’t fit in with the old establishment. He must fight hard to prove his innocence, and finds help when an unexpected piece on information is revealed that changes his place in the world.

But the trial is only the beginning. The King has laid down a challenge to those graduating the Academy, to go on a mission into the enemy stronghold in a decisive move to end the war and bring peace. Peace however is not on everyone’s minds, and a traitor will threaten the lives of Fletcher and his friends and see them sent into more danger than they ever imagined.

These books are really good, especially for younger reeaders who are new to reading for fun. It’s easy to read, with plenty of excitment to keep you interested, and not too long.

The next book in the series is called Battlemage.

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas (16 years and over) SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE PRECEADING BOOKS IN THE SERIES!

This is the fifth book in the Throne of Glass series.

 

This is the first book in the series NOT to have Celaena/Aelin in it all, and I loved it! I was curious how this book would feel without the protagonist of the series nowhere to be seen, and I was really happy with the result.

This book follows Lord Chaol, former captain of the Royal Guard and lover to Celaena as he travels to the Southern Continent. He has two missions to complete while there, and neither are easy. The first is to form an alliance with the most powerful ruler in the world, and the second his to seek treatment for his injuries from the battle in Rifthold which left him paralysed from the waist down.

He and his companion Nesyrn find themselves in a court full of spies of princes and princesses competing to be named heir, who are showing little signs of wanting to help in the fight to save their homeland. But the hardest part will be healing the wounds that have taken Chaols ability to walk. That is how he meets Yrene: possibly the most gifted healer anywhere, who has her own reasons for not wanting to help him.

What they find out in the process will change both what they know about the past, but also the future.

I love this series so much that I know I will be really sad when the series ends with the next book. Although I am really happy to hear that there are plans to turn the novels into a TV series.

The next and final book in the series is called Kingdom of Ash, and will be released in October 2018.

Hogwarts Mystery

ap_resize

A new game has been announced called ‘Hogwarts Mystery’. From what I can tell it will be a free RPG, with in-app purchases available, and will be released in Spring 2018. In the game you will take on the role of a character, and have to solve mysteries set in the Hogwarts castle (as the name suggests). I think we will also be able to brew potions and duel.

At the moment the game is still in the Beta stage, and only available in certain countries on android devices (which makes me sad as I use Apple). I’m not sure if this is connected to the ‘Wizards Unite’ app that was announced recently or not, but I suppose we will have to wait and see.

My Nan

rose-beautiful-beauty-bloom

On Wednesday 14th March (2018) my Nan passed away after a long struggle following four strokes in the last year. She was surrounded by her family, and is no longer in any pain. It has been a very tough few weeks for us, and I am glad that I have my family and friends around me for support. We are not sure when the funeral will be as we are still waiting for some paperwork from the hospital before we can arrange anything.
