Grains of Truth: Bonds of Friendship cannot be broken by Elizabeth Ferry-Perata

5 StarsEmotionalThis was a story written with grace and inspiration, a connection of friendship.It had emotions that ran up and down, and it was able to pour off the pages and engage the reader.

The Divine Comedy by Dante, Illustrated, Hell, by Dante Alighieri

5 StarsInspirational classicThis is a classic for a reason. The words expressed show the versions of shell toits extreme. I believe that all classics should be read and admired. This one proves that age does not falter a good story. The story is separated by Cantos and it lends to how the story was told.

The Magician’s Workshop, Volume Two by Christopher Hansen and JR Fehr

5 StarsA magical (pun intended) sequel  I enjoyed the first book in the series, and was introduced to the myriad of great characters, but that book set the tone for this one, which has more depth and action than the first one.
