ARC Review: “Ordinary Miracles” by Martyn Carey

Good morning, all! I am giving a fair warning up top that, despite being super excited about receiving this ARC from Netgalley and Matador, Ordinary Miracles fell flat for me, in more ways than one.

ARC Review: “Shadow in the Empire of Light,” by Jane Routley

Good morning everyone! I'd like to start by thanking Netgalley and Rebellion Publishing for what was a pretty interesting ARC.

Thank you, Netgalley and Double Beast Publishing, for Sara Snider's fantastical Hazel and Holly! As a side note, I learned recently that Double Beast is actually Sara Snider's own publishing house that she created after writing this book.
