Here There Be Books (BL)

I love books with great characters who go on adventures and/or solve mysteries re: invading aliens/vampires/etc. I blog about those books at Here There Be Books!


This is the BookLikes thingy for HTBB.

Firebird (The Elemental Masters Fairy Tales)

Firebird - Mercedes Lackey My first Mercedes Lackey book! Unfortunately, I didn’t like it. I liked BITS of it, including the fairy tale-ness of it, but it wasn’t as magically wonderful as I was hoping it’d be. I did like the twist at the end (although it was totally obvious) and I liked the writing style, so I’ll definitely read another [a:Mercedes Lackey|8685|Mercedes Lackey|] book.(This mini-review was originally posted here.)
