Fighting against society’s feminine expectations, Owena’s excellent strategic and swordsmanship skills come to the fore after an attack and imprisonment of villagers. Running for their lives, a small group escape persecution but find new dangers ahead. Propelled into the world of rebel forces, she joins the battle against the Buldrick Empire. After seeing the failings of the rebel encampment, she makes changes – some well received, others not. Her unlikely champion is a giant of a man, who is feared by all. Their mutual respect and his acceptance of her as an equal propels them to organize a win or die fight to restore the rightful King to the throne.

Bibliophile’s Collective Tuesday – Reading Challenge, Reviews, a Podcast and a Prize Basket.

How is your Goodreads Challenge shaping up? I am currently 3 books ahead of schedule, not entirely sure how, but it does give me some breathing room. These are the books I read, and I am currently reading The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell.

This is not counting the chapters I am reading and editing within a novel workshop, where four other authors are participating. The genre’s span action/adventure, prairie story, time travel and contemporary fiction and my detective fiction.

What are you reading?

I will be announcing a special gift basket for my steampunk readers in Edmonton, in the next week or so. It will be part of a prize draw at Daisy Chain Book Co. Details pending.

I had two books delivered, to add to the never ending TBR pile  10 Days in January by Elenor Decker, which was the result of a competition entry and Eat with Us by Gina Cianfarani & Nancy Castro.

2020 Jan door prize

I have already read 10 Days in December by Eleanor. It is an extraordinary story of her life, building a home in the most extreme weather conditions.

I love all things Italy, so this cookbook was too good to not purchase! Can’t wait to try out the recipes.

Why not share the last book you purchased and why you chose it?

I did an interview last week and talked about my books and the writing group I belong to the Writers Foundation of Strathcona County (Go to 11.00 on timeline) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NWuChupY40&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR3tYdwL08nFeK2SQ0a9JqTdlRBCGU2iixDXHGGjmnBZ19UxqyOw8BsNkB8
