Dark Triumph
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. What an amazing book!

I read the first book of this series quite a long time ago.
I hardly remembered what happened in the first book but I knew one thing: I loved it.

This book is no different. LOVE.
Sybella is such a strong character. She endures so much and overcomes everything while retaining who she is. Her family is whacked. WTH is wrong with those men!

Beast, oh Beast. He really steals the show sometimes. I also loved this character. Sybella and he are perfect traveling companions. She plays nursemaid very well.

If you enjoyed the first book you will no doubt love this book too.
If you enjoy historical fantasy you will also enjoy this book. It is full of adventure, historical political issues and alight with humor at perfect times.

I especially loved the author’s closing notes at the end where she justifies some of the terms she used. She also explains the timing of actual historical events that she based this book on. I found it intriguing to learn that such events actually happened!

I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

Prom Fever Giveaway!

It’s that time of the year! Prom!

Prom is usually a big deal to most high school students. Mostly the girls are the ones to have the most fun preparing for the big day.

I remember my junior prom and my now husband’s senior prom. It was such a boring night!! I’m sure it was just us. We’re not big on dancing nor did we have very many friends that we could hang out with. We did dance once (I think). I remember my feet were killing me by the time we left. Damn those heels! We didn’t do an after party either. We may have found a  quite back road for a few minutes of quality time. ;)

Here’s our prom picture. We’ll be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary this June 29th.
