ARC Review: Conquering William by Sarah Hegger

Series:     Sir Arthur's Legacy #3
Pub. Date:Aug. 30, 2016
Publisher:Lyrical Press
Length:250 pages

I have been trying to work a book by Sarah Hegger into my calendar ever since I met her at RT earlier this year. Trust me when I say that she is one cool cat! I had planned to start with Sweet Bea, but I ended starting the series out of order with Conquering William. There is some character crossover from the earlier books of the series. I believe that William is the sister of the two prior heroines in Sweet Bea and My Lady Faye. But even with the character crossover, I didn't feel lost or have any trouble following the story. So you should be fine if you are reading out of order like me.

Stackin' the Shelves #44 and Weekly Update

Welcome back bambinas!
This is Stackin' the Shelves, the weekly feature where I showcase all the books I have accepted for review, one-clicked, won or borrowed from the library. It was a slow week for the book acquisition aspect of being a reader... but a busy week reading.

Here's what went on my shelf this week. Have you read any of these - or do you plan to? Did you pick up anything exciting this week?

Series Saturday Review: Oria's Gambit by Jeffe Kennedy

Series:     Sorcerous Moons #2
Pub. Date:Aug. 18, 2016
Length:198 pages

Oria's Gambit, the second book in Jeffe Kennedy's Sorcerous Moons series, picks up right where Lonen's War left off. So I do not recommend you read these books out of order, you will need to get the majority of the world-building and character introduction from Lonen's War. As a recap, the Bara are a magical race living in a desert environment, and the males and females have a symbiotic magical relationship. The Destrye are a non-magical barbarian race who conquered the Bara in Lonen's War.
