Sworn to Raise by Terah Edun is the fourth story in the Spark anthology. The writing didn’t catch my attention, but I enjoyed the story more than I expected. 3 stars for the first book in the Courtlight series.
Queens of Innis Lear is the newest book by Tessa Gratton. Three princesses await the king’s decision who gets the crown. Poetic, magical, and strong females are the foundation of this amazing fantasy. The ARC gets four stars.
Snowspelled is the first book in ‘The Harwood Spellbook’ series by Stephanie Burgis. An unnatural snowstorm hit Angland and Cassandra Harwood made a promise to find the culprit. 4,5 stars for a perfect read on a wintery day.
The Book Of Secrets by Melissa McShane is the first of The Last Oracle series. This urban fantasy story takes you to an old bookstore that’s more than just that. Ask questions to get the answer you seek.

In The Withering Flame (The Year of the Dragon #6), Bran, Nagomi and Sato continue on their journey to fulfill the prophecy and save Yamato. Torn apart by a civil war, the three have to find each other and new allies to help reach their goal. 4,5 stars.
