Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

The Iron Maiden - Resa Nelson I received a copy of this book for free from the author in exchange for an unbiased honest review.

The are more points of view (narrators) as compared to Book 1, The Dragonslayer Sword, in addition to and much darker themes. I wouldn't recommend this one for as young an audience as I did with the first. Religious fanatics, hint of rape, death, release... Astrid's journey is far different this time around.

Overall, in intriguing fantasy that builds a little more to the world with each installment in the series. The tone of the series seems to grow as Astrid grows. Just as she is truly putting her youth and former life behind, she must witness the darkness hidden in the world all along (by childhood innocence.)

More to come!
