M. L. Chesley is a fantasy author and mother of four children (two human, two fur). She's fluent in sarcasm and snark, traits only her family can adore. Even though fantasy is her love, she's branching out into genres such as romance and paranormal. Should things get out of hand, her loving husband is standing by her side, straight-jacket in hand.

I have found a post on Pinterest. Yes. Pinterest. I'm addicted. I need an intervention.

The King's Justice by Jeanne Stumbaugh
"A good start that could be a nice series of books. The main character is different from the "maiden in a castle" stereotype and it piques my interest to learn more about the Kingdom of the Dead and it's purpose. A quick read and even paced."

Quick note, this review is from my blog:

You all know by now how rare it is for me to praise a fantasy book up and down, sideways, backwards, etc. Well, this book gets all that praise that I reserve for fantasy. I'm old school fantasy, I love finding

“What was that?" Belgarath asked, coming back around the corner.
"Brill," Silk replied blandly, pulling his Murgo robe back on.
"Again?" Belgarath demanded with exasperation. "What was he doing this time?"
"Trying to fly, last time I saw him." Silk smirked.
The old man looked puzzled.
"He wasn't doing it very well," Silk added.
Belgarath shrugged. "Maybe it'll come to him in time."
"He doesn't really have all that much time." Silk glanced out over the edge.
"From far below - terribly far below - there came a faint, muffled crash; then, after several seconds, another. "Does bouncing count?" Silk asked.
Belgarath made a wry face. "Not really."
"Then I'd say he didn't learn in time." Silk said blithely.”
