    I had been quiet lately I had been unable to post reviews For this month, I only have three so far and we are already half way in June I am still playing catch up I don t know if I will eventually be able to write reviews right away after reading a story I had found that it saves a lot of time and on electric bills if I postthan one review at a time So, instead of posting a review everyday, it makes a lot of sense to post multiple reviews at least once or twice in a week I can cover I had been quiet lately I had been unable to post reviews For this month, I only have three so far and we are already half way in June I am still playing catch up I don t know if I will eventually be able to write reviews right away after reading a story I had found that it saves a lot of time and on electric bills if I postthan one review at a time So, instead of posting a review everyday, it makes a lot of sense to post multiple reviews at least once or twice in a week I can cover a lot of items on my TBR in between writing and some other things happening in life.This story follows right after Heir to the Lamp You can check out the review here I read this last month right after the first book I was so entranced by the story that I had to read the second book right away There was no use waiting or taking a break This talks about the myth of the bell of Solomon Yes, the one in the bible, that same guy This bell is purported to have magical powers of great proportions I am in awe as to how the author presented Solomon s bell into being a part of the story It was very clever and the background story was very finely done It became part of the story without a glitch and brought an all new level of adventure to this already packed fantasy The fact that the story went from about genie in the modern times to time travel, mythical creatures and ancient artifacts is just so much experience in one story I was really pulled into it all Just like being sucked helplessly into the a whirl wind, I was brought to adventures beyond my imagination can conjure This story also reminds me of another book Snow in August by Pete Hamill This story and that of Hamill s both have golems, rabbis and Prague in them Did I say Prague Yes, Prague with its own old astronomical clock tower, old churches and castles Oh, I just love the story of how that clock tower came to be and how it stopped ticking Prague It s not everyday that I get to read stories about this place With its own set of lore and myths that is both for the admirers and the not Even if you are not a fan of myths and artifacts, this story will have you mystified I wouldn t know what to expect in the next book I am all for surprises Thank you so much World Weaver Press for the review copies Hope you would still give me that chance to review the next book without having to pay for it.I give this 5 5 old church bells I don t care if they are Solomon s or not Mythical or just plain old rusted bells Just like the tolling of the church bell which spurs you to attention or pulls you back to the present when your mind wanders, this book will call your attention and will not let it waver or stray again I was like a child introduced to a world of wonders that are so new to me This book just opened up another world that I thought adults like me will no longer visit and appreciate.I am curious as to what other stories and genre the author has She has a likelihood of ending up in my favorite authors list.Gran believes that time changes people, but a part of me believes just this once, maybe that Gran is wrong I think it s people that change people Michelle Lowery Combs, Solomon s Bell

    This fun YA Fantasy takes adopted teen genie Ginn Lawson out of her basketball games and crowded suburban house and all the way back to the synagogues and courts of 16th century Prague smack into the middle of the story of the Golem of Prague Something like a YA version of The Golem and the Jinni, Solomon s Bell presents a fascinating historical setting not often seen in YA fantasy, and memorable characters of all ages.

    I won an ARC of this novel in a goodreads drawing.A teenage girl, who just happens to be a genie, is trying to adjust to her newfound power, when she is sucked into an adventure Some way or another, she ends up in 16 century Prague, and has to stop the golem A similar creature menaces the genie s family in the modern era.Not bad for this kind of thing.

    Book Review originally published here s Bell is the second book in the Genie Chronicles series Not having read the first book, I was confused at first having the backstory definitely helps However, a few chapters in, I had a good enough grasp of what was going on to enjoy the story Ginn, our main character, is a genie, which is actually quite cool To save her family, she transports herself and her friends to 16th century Prague.I like histor Book Review originally published here s Bell is the second book in the Genie Chronicles series Not having read the first book, I was confused at first having the backstory definitely helps However, a few chapters in, I had a good enough grasp of what was going on to enjoy the story Ginn, our main character, is a genie, which is actually quite cool To save her family, she transports herself and her friends to 16th century Prague.I like historical stories, and Prague in the 16th century sounds pretty awesome Not only that, but the fantasy spins add unique elements to the story The Emperor of Prague and those closest to him are obsessed with magic, and to obtain magic, they ve waved wars on the citizens of their city.One of the main villains in this book is a golem Golems aren t often used in literature nowadays, although they re very interesting, and so is their history and use in older stories The connections between past and present worked really well, and I could easily feel a connection with Ginn and her friends

    Disclaimer I was given this book for free as part of the Library Thing Early Reviewer LTER program for an honest review.This second book in the series was another enjoyable read The story picks up from where book one finishes, with all the same characters plus a fewbeing, Haley, Mrs Shapiro, Malory, Frizzle, Marek and Shaymar I found all the characters likeable, though not all of them are what they appear to be Again, like the first book, you are wondering which side some of the char Disclaimer I was given this book for free as part of the Library Thing Early Reviewer LTER program for an honest review.This second book in the series was another enjoyable read The story picks up from where book one finishes, with all the same characters plus a fewbeing, Haley, Mrs Shapiro, Malory, Frizzle, Marek and Shaymar I found all the characters likeable, though not all of them are what they appear to be Again, like the first book, you are wondering which side some of the characters are on and what their own agenda might be I did find Ginn aka Virginia a bit whiney and arrogant in this book but then I am not the age group the book is written for.Just like the first book, the storyline progresses at a constant pace There were no action sequences, but there were, at times, suspense moments as to what would happen next I found that the way the story progressed you always knew that things were going to work out for the best, but there were a few surprises in that I did not expect some actions from one of the characters but once explained it made perfect sense can t say anythingthan that otherwise it would be a spoiler The main characters in this book, Ginn, Caleb and Haley all developed in a positive way that made it realistic i.e as young adults learn through life choices and the consequences of those choices they grow and develop as people.It is an enjoyable series and I will be interested to see where the next book takes the storyline and the characters
