Kirsten's Codexes

My favorite three authors are Anne Bishop, Cassandra Clare, and Ilona Andrews, so if you love any of their books, you've come to a good place for recommendations. I mostly read fantasy and young adult novels, but occasionally I'll add some science fiction or general fiction to the list. Happy Reading!

De Castell brings us a series exploring the strengths of different cultures, different people, and putting more stock in the journey than the destination...and magic, of course. I can't say I loved the ending, but the six books it took to get there were well worth reading.
