New Adult Contemporary Fantasy from Tahlia Newland: Stalking Shadows: Diamond Peak #2
This is the second book in Tahlia Newland’s Diamond Peak series. If you follow my blog, you know I do not do long reviews for anything but the 1st book in a series, but this is one that you do not want to miss.
My review for the 1st book in the series:
Ariel and Nick are at it again, fighting demons that prey off your emotions. In a new twist on fantasy, Tahlia introduces us again to magical realism. She puts characters in fantastical situations, but they are actually fighting everyday situations that have to do with hate, greed, envy, and the like. Her characters are rich in real life experiences, following on life’s journey of emotional ups and downs. I loved the relationship between Nick and Ariel. It was so pure with the promise of young love and the maturity to put it on hold while they fought the demons they were pitted against. In a race to save Ariel’s mother’s life, Ariel discovers who she is and what she is capable of. This is a gripping series that I would recommend to anyone. It has a great moral compass to encompass the ages. I look forward to book three!

Today we have T.L. Frye’s cover reveal. I have had the pleasure of reading an advance copy and the book is a magical adventure that you will want to go on again and again. It is one that you don’t want to miss if you like YA Fantasy.
The Secret of Magik and Dragons Synopsis
In a land far away, 15-yr-old (she thinks) Alex just wants to do her magic show to make enough money to see her and Gwennie through the winter. She doesn’t want any mistakes. She doesn’t care (much) about the missing king and queen or the despotic ruler, Rolando, that is making life so hard for everyone.
But she ends up the not-so-proud owner of a scraggly dragon, and sets off (reluctantly) to discover there’s a lot more she needs to learn about magik and dragons, and a boy named Orion that visits her dreams…
