Anchored by Bridget E. Baker (Purple Puppy, 2021) An engaging blend of YA fantasy, intrigue and romance, the invented-world magic sitting nicely alongside its urban counterpart. Alora is a winning character—her sister-brother relationship with Jesse is a highlight—and the story unfolds nicely, though it trails off into open-endedness.
Displaced by Bridget E. Baker (Purple Puppy Publishing, 2019) Chancery is a likeable protagonist and the workings of Evian society make a nice change from Elves. The romance angle, however, doesn’t gel particularly well with the political intrigue. Interactions with the human world seem similarly grafted-on. Still, the pages keep turning.
