Books From The Backlog-Cursing Stones


Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf.  You might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks. Go to Carole's blog and add your blog post link in to join in the fun! Hosted by Carole at https://carolesrandomlife.blogspot.co.uk/

This seems like a fun feature and I have been planning to take part since Carole launched this so at last, here we go! I have a TON of unread books to choose from in various genres and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them with everybody. 


Home is where the monsters are...
 
Rhiannon 'Rain' Finlay sucks at being a druid. Her gift of communicating with animals works just fine, but she doesn't know a Thurisaz rune from a Wunjo, and she can't even cast a circle of protection without a cheat sheet. That's why she decided to leave her tiny village on the Isle of Parthas, North Sea, for a normal non-magical life halfway around the world.
But when her beloved grandfather disappears along with a handful of villagers, she's forced to return home and use her gift -- and her crappy druid magic -- to help them. Unfortunately, she's not exactly prepared to face the very real monsters that are popping up all over, from mutant spiders to banshees, black dogs ... and worse. 


That's when she learns all the crazy stories her father told her growing up, about the old deserted castle on the island having belonged to King Arthur, might not be so crazy after all.
The legends are real. They're returning to Parthas. And they have unfinished business with Rain Finlay.


I have loved the two books in her djinn series, and the first in her fae series, all of which I gave 5 stars to so I was always going to buy this one when I saw she had a new series out. I added this to my bookshelves last summer and look forward to reading it.

  1. Ah, King Arthur! You hooked me with that mention -- this book sounds exciting and who doesn't love it when legends become real?

    1. I want to read more about mythology around Arthur and things like that but some of the fantasy books are just too heavy going! I'm hoping this will work!

  2. I'm a sucker for the Rhiannon. This does sound promising and hey, 5 stars to past books would seem like a good indicator.

    1. I'm interested in reading more about druids after enjoying Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid series.

  5. Not sure about this one for me, but with the good history you have with this author I reckon it should be top of your TBR!

  6. This sounds great! I love that she isn't the best at magic like you usually see. I could get behind a crappy druid with a touch of King Arthur.
