Review for Nicole Chardenet's "Young Republican Yuppie Princess"

Review: "Young Republican Yuppie Princess" by Nicole Chardenet - 4 Stars

I’m not one for humerous fantasy, but I was inspired to read this book. This story takes place in the early 1980’s where 4 university students suddenly find themselves transported to a high fantasy world through a shower stall. The four are friends of very different world perceptions and through their adventures in trying to save their fellow student, Stephanie, from marrying Prince Chip, they all realize their potentials.

The story is told in the first person by Joyce, a Wall Street Tiger wanna-be, and it is her conservative blinders that cause much of the strife throughout the story.

Fun and adventurous, this book keeps the reader going. Sometimes you love Joyce and sometimes you just want to slap her.

Review for Ricardo Pinto's "The Chosen"

Review: "The Chosen: Book One of The Stone Dance of the Chameleon" by Ricardo Pinto 5 Stars!

This is not the first time I have read this book and it won’t be my last. Ricardo’s debut novel is a masterpiece of prose that transports the reader into a world undreamt of. Each detail is exquisitely painted with the brushes of Ricardo’s fantastic use of language.

Ricardo takes us journey through this exotic land to live along with Carnelian, the young protagonist. Forced to leave the only home he knows to live in the land of his people Carnelian is entangled in a vicious game for the throne that threatens to tear his heart into two. If you love unique and brilliantly written fantasy, you will love this book! I do!
