I really liked this. I think my biggest mistake is reading is in January, when I'm staring at the entire mess left behind from Christmas and all of the decorations being packed up. I think this will do better on re-read in early November, just as the ...more

I'm torn on this book. I struggled with the audiobook (it took 4 months to finish), but I enjoyed it enough to keep coming back to it. I think I just wasn't in the mood for a cozy this summer, so I was just choosing the book at the wrong time for me. ...more

Such an interesting story, mixing fantasy, murder mystery, and historical myth together and then wrapping it all in Moyer's melancholy, lyrical writing style. This stories sets aside the legends of Robin Hood, and instead make him a flawed man. A dee ...more

This series has been consistent fun, so I was quite pleased when Audible told me there was a third book out.

This is a heist-romp series, so this book is another heist-romp. While it was obvious who the "bad guy" was the entire time, it was fun tryin

This was a tough one to rate because it really depends on what you're looking for. I read for character first, not plot, and I didn't feel attached to any of the characters. However, if you're looking for plot first, and characters to explain out how ...more

Quotes by Krista D. Ball  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Never let the details take over the story; let the story dictate what details to use.”
Krista D. Ball, What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank

“We don’t need to justify disability, gender, people of colour, and varied sexual orientations and identities. People just exist in real life. They don’t need to be explained or justified. Likewise, people do not need to be justified in books. They just exist. If we can even get used to the background, minor people to reflect reality, that would be an improvement towards changing the Strong Female Character into a strong character who happens to be female this time around.”
Krista D. Ball, Appropriately Aggressive: Essays About Books, Corgis, and Feminism

“you could be dead tomorrow. Do something. And”
Krista D. Ball, Spirit Caller: Books 4-6
