This book is pure fun! The photos are great, but when the artist/author adds the dot-tojj-dot feature, the photos take on a whole new meaning. The pages are fold out and perforated so you can easiely do the “activity” if you wish. I like that the paper is thick so if you want to use markers (probably a good idea if you want color) the color won’t bleed through to the other side and ruin htat photo I thought this was a cute idea and would brighten someone’s day, it did mine!

Samantha Kidd is back in a stylish new book by Diane Vallere. This book is a tightly woven mystery, filled with suspense and intrigue. I didn’t want to put the book down! I adore Samantha Kidd and would love to be more like her – she is spunky, feisty and marches to the beat of her own drummer. I liked seeing Samantha’s journey of self discovery in this book. One of the things I think Ms. Vallere does very well is balance the mystery with the characters (the mystery helps spark the process or move it along). This is one of my favorite series, I look forward to seeing what happens next in Samantha Kidd’s world!

One of the things I really enjoy is coloring. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get this book. It’s a whimsical nod to Alice in Wonderland with a little modern flair. The illustrations keep in line with the original story and are divided into chapters like a traditional book.
There are a few short paragraphs at the beginning of each chapter to help guide the story along. The only downside is the print is far too small, including the page giving directions for the activities. I honestly didn’t mind too much because I wanted the book to color not read.
Speaking of coloring – all of the pages have something to color, including the title page. The dust jacket and cover are printed on paper to allow for coloring as well. The flip side of the dust jacket can also be colored. I thought that was a nice treat!
Amily Shen is a talented illustrator and do I hope she releases another coloring book soon, I’m really enjoying thisi one.

WOW!!!! I LOVED this book! Melanie James has written another terrific book. Ms. James has deftly woven a complex story combining Viking lore with the shifter community. The author has introduced multi=layered characters that we really get to know over the course of the book. Ms. James has done a superb job of painting a portrait with her words, I felt as though I were right there with the characters as the story unfolded. Emotions are often intense in this book due to the physical, mental and emotions abuse some of the characters faced in the lives. I found myself feeling the same emotions as the characters. I’m captivated by these characters and look forward to reading more of this wonderful new series!
