I first read The Prodigy of Rainbow Tower back in 2013. Here’s the Amazon review I wrote for it:

Months after reading this book, my mind is still drawn to it. The fight scenes are descriptive without being overdone, the characters are realistic and dynamic, and there are surprise punches I just didn’t see coming. It’s a great adventure story. There’s a lot going on in this book, but Charles Yallowitz somehow made it all flow together seamlessly. I’ll continue to recommend this series to anyone who enjoys reading fantasy.

That holds as true now as it did when I first read the book. Nyx is a complex, exciting character who I feel really compliments Luke Callindor’s character. The fight scenes are realistic and the action is both fast-paced and smooth. It kept me reading and reading.

It’s been a busy week, so I haven’t finished reading through The Prodigy…

Legends of Windemere

Yola Biggs by Kayla Matt Yola Biggs by Kayla Matt

Before anyone screams about sequel, I’m going to put a disclaimer.  This is a possible story and it can happen no matter what happens in Legends of Windemere.  The reason for this is because it revolves around Yola Biggs the Goddess of Chaos.  She can be a factor whether she lives, dies, goes good, goes evil, ends the series with an anti-gravity tea party, or ends up wandering to Earth where she rules the marmosets with an iron fist.  Seriously, this is a ‘villain’ whose combat repertoire may including taking off her own head and wielding it by the hair like a flail.  Basically, she’s nuts, a goddess, gets a lot of growth in Book 8, and has a story that can be told if I feel like it.  Still, I’m going to put the ‘more below’ thing here just to be safe.
