This was a lovely new fantasy based of Celtic folklore. It was a very cool fantasy world and unique magic. There were moments where it dragged and there are moments that feel YA, even though is an adult book. This would be a good first foray into adult fantasy. I look forward to book 2! 4⭐️

I rather enjoyed this one. It felt a little slow, but i love the plot, the setting and a slow burning romance. The second book is due to come out later this year and I‘m looking forward to it.

I originally picked up this this book because of #BOTM. I had never heard of it before I picked it. There are only so many books I can read, so I decided to try it on audio. Loved it! Loved the accents and the different voices for everyone.

Jack comes back to his home island after being gone for 10 years. Someone has been snatching their girls. He helps to solve the mystery and a lot of other things I don‘t want to spoil. This is a light fantasy

In this first book of a series, Rebecca Ross has given us a beautifully built world and crafted characters that I truly loved. Jack Tamerlane, a musical bard, is ordered to return home. Believing he will make a quick visit, Jack soon learns that his skills are all that can help Adria, Heir of Cadence find girls that have been kidnapped. His music summons spirits, and there are other deeper secrets to be revealed. I can‘t wait for the next tale.

Jack Tamerlaine returns home to help his childhood rival speak to the spirits and uncover what is causing the disappearance of young girls on the island.

I loved this so much… a very well-written fantasy with Scottish elements and a fairytale feel, complete with elemental spirits, a beautiful magic system, and a freaking bard. I enjoyed the characters and how they developed with the story, and the audiobook is fantastic.

The only thing keeping this from being 5⭐️s for me is that it‘s definitely a ‘book 1‘ of a series. I‘m going to need the next book ASAP, because that ending… ugh. 💔

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

This was so good and I‘m already excited for the 2nd one! I especially loved how the big twist wasn‘t something I foresaw and how the folk/magic were rooted in lore without feeling tired. I do hope they‘ll sing for fire in the sequel, though, being ever the completionist.

The first in a series set on a magical island called Cadence. Girls have been going missing on the island Adaira, heiress of the East ask Jack Tamerlaine back from the mainland to help with finding the girls. As he is a bard and capable of singing to the spirits to get information. There are secrets, rival clans and romance in this Scottish themed story. I really enjoyed it.

🎧📚 Annoying YA trope but it didn‘t realllllly bother me.

A bastard bard is sent away for nearly a decade to learn his craft. He‘s summoned back to the isle as girls are disappearing.

Mysteries involving the girls & the question about his parentage then the tropey YA romance but thankfully no awkward sexy time.

It‘s a story with a bit of magic & earth, wind, fire & water elementals can be summoned from nature.

I didn't finish reading any books this week, so I went out and bought a couple more. I make excellent life choices 👍

(Note, I didn't buy all these books today. Two are Illumicrate books, and so very, very pretty 😍😍😍)

I really loved this book. Jack is called back to his childhood home by Adaira, the clan leader's daughter, after some of the girls in the village go missing. Jack has become a bard and Adaira is hoping he can use his gift to call the spirits of the isle to help find the girls.

Really enjoying A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross! It‘s lyrical, and it‘s different from anything else I‘ve read so far- I‘m hoping the story gets darker and more twisted as I read since this is an Adult fantasy novel☺️ I‘m also listening to the playlist the author has set up while reading, and it‘s definitely setting up the atmosphere well📖

Always satisfying to finish my February #BOTM on the day that I picked out my March books! This fantasy starts a new series about a divided island and the elemental magic that shapes it. Jack returns after a decade away- determined to leave as soon as possible. But he may be the island‘s only hope of uncovering what happened to the missing girls. Engaging and well-written, I am really looking forward to the next installment!

When Jack returns home to find missing children, he has to confront more than just the spirits to set things right.

This is definitely THE pick for anyone who‘s enjoyed a rollicking D&D campaign. The world-building is sturdy without being Tolkien. You will 100% fall in love with Sidra (okay, that might just be me). The ending is disappointing — too open-ended to wrap up anything, which ends up feeling a bit cash-grab. #botm #longreads #fantasy

Here is my March #BookSpin list. I‘m hoping to focus on my BOTM backlog. I have 10 on my list, plus the March one (just in case).

I was so excited to see my box was delivered, but when I got home it hadn‘t been, even though it says it was put in my mailbox on the usps tracking. 😢 My carrier often misdelivers the mail, so I‘ve lost many a package. I contacted BOTM to see what they can do. I was looking forward to reading this and the pins!!!

Laughterhp I‘ve read the Snow Queen and just got A River Enchanted from BOTM. But I‘d be okay reading it if it‘s the top pick. These all sound really good. My top choice would be hounded or Nevernight, but I‘m okay with any! I‘d prefer not to reread the Snow Queen. (edited) 8mo
Chrissyreadit I‘ve read Hounded. Never night is my first choice, then Neverwhere, then A River Enchanted. 8mo
TheAromaofBooks These all sound great!! I'm fine with Nevernight. I read the Aurora books that Kristoff co-wrote with Amie Kaufman and loved them, so I would definitely be into giving one his books a try!! 8mo

I totally put Vladimir on hold at the library 😆

I debated between this & The Golden Couple. I put TGC on hold at the library also.

A River Enchanted looks like a mystery/fantasy? Sounds like the best of two worlds. Hopefully!

I was fully expecting to skip this month, but when I read the description for this book, I decided to take a chance on this debut author. I like choosing longer books for my #BOTM, since I feel like I am getting more bang for my buck. Did anyone else choose this one?

*I won Vladimir from a Goodreads giveaway, otherwise I might have picked it instead. Excited to see what people think of it this month; it will be on my TBR for February.

BookwormAHN I did. I love when they fantasy as an option. 8mo
Twainy lol exactly!! I always lean towards the big boys. This one said fantasy but it had intrigue with the missing girls! Plus & plus!! I put Vladimir & the Golden Couple on pre-hold at the library right away. 8mo

I was pretty happy with the picks this month since I skipped the last few months because nothing caught my eye. It's been awhile since a fantasy caught my attention and the add on just sounded like a good sports romance. I also managed to make BFF status this month! So a pretty good way to start this week. #botm #botmbff #romance #fantasy

marleed I recently read Head over heels. It‘s perfect for reading this month with the Olympics! 8mo
