More Books

So I recently returned from a book signing in CA and because I fly standby I experienced a decent amount of airport appreciation time both in Fresno and in Seattle. During all this airport appreciation time I discovered an author that I quite enjoy. That enjoyment spread through three of her books. Sherwood Smith. Sherwood Smith (born 1951) is an American fantasy and science fiction writer for young adults as well as adults. Smith is a Nebula Award finalist and a longtime writing group organizer and participant.

Now granted, I haven't read any of her other books, so I can't guarantee that they are all clean, but three out of three is a good record so far. :)

Crown Duel: A compilation of two novels both Crown Duel and Court Dual. This was a delightful fantasy with all the fun of kingdoms, wars, magic, and mystery with a thread of romance all rolled into an amazing adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I also enjoyed the fact that it was clean, not overly violent and blood, and no language. For anyone who enjoys a good adventure this is a great read and I highly recommend it.

Second on my list by the same author is A Posse of Princesses. This was also a fun story though deeper in the adventure of young love and romance Smith weaves an adventure that is unexpected and enjoyable with twists and turns that bring the reader happily along. I also recommend this one. Again clean, not violent, and no language. Yay!!!
