The Enchanted — The Gateway Chronicles, Book 4

The Enchanted seems to me a magical book, even more so than its predecessors, with relationships being the cornerstone on which Hoyle builds her stage. Her edits and update or added scenes serve one purpose and one purpose only: to make what I thought was a perfect book somehow even better, and I am thrilled to read on.

The Six — The Gateway Chronicles, Book 1

Nearly ten years ago, K.B. Hoyle released the first of her Gateway Chronicles to the world, and I immediately fell in love. Through three different rounds of releases, covers, edits, I've had the pleasure of watching Hoyle's writing mature and her story expand into a vast and beautiful entity. What a pleasure it's been, being a part of the latest (and best) release of this series complete with new and vibrant covers, smoothed-out sections, and brand new material readers have never had access to before! Now, more than ever, the series feels well and truly complete.

An Enchantment of Ravens

When I first saw the cover art on this novel, I fell in love. It reminded me of this old, Egyptian Cinderella story I read as a child and upon picking up the book, I was caught by the description.

The idea of a truly dangerous, perhaps unlikeable male hero (Rook) also held a certain appeal, as well as the idea of "craft" and this writer's take on the fair folk being disturbing, woodsy, thoroughly inhuman creatures. Thankfully, I was not at all disappointed.
