Review to come.

I’m a HUGE fan of Rachel R. Smith’s Records of the Ohanzee series. I enjoy the perfect blend of magical moments mixed with adorable, swoony scenes, topped with action-packed pages as well. This series is everything I love about reading a great fantasy story!

Compared to the previous book, this one was a little slower. Which I surprisingly didn’t mind. It begins right where Reflection: Dragon’s Bane left off. Nerissa and the Ohanzee have finally taken back what is rightfully theirs but the only th

Sadly, I don't think I have any interest in this series anymore. I don't remember anything from the previous four installments and I'm not in a mood to force myself to read something. I do have to say the last two covers (this one and the 6th) are gorgeous. I may try to pick the series up again one day and I'll always check out any of Rachel's future novels or stories. 💜 ...more

I am so glad this series has come back. There were times where I had to put the book down in the sense of I wanted to savor the novel but halfway through things got more exciting and action packed so I sped through it (in a good way). Because this is book 5 in a series I will not spoil things but this book as well as this series in general reminds me of a couple of anime mashups (particularly Yona of the dawn and Story of Saiunkoku) but with its own added crystal magic. It also has a cast of cha ...more

I waited for what seemed like an eternity for this book to be released. I followed the updates and became even more so excited upon the cover reveal.

The story picks up where it leaves all in all our favorite characters (good and bad) mange to make an appearances in some way or form.

The plot thicken in the most magical way and relationships blossomed. I was blown away by how aesthetically pleasing the writing was. It made it easy to place myself back into the series I have come to love.  And I mu

I had my suspicions as I closed Dragon’s Bane that this series was not really over. Nine months have gone by since Nerissa first donned a mask at the ball and her return to Chiyo to claim her place as Heiress; BUT there is still so much left undone. The 600 year old prophecy is still unfolding. No one is safe...not Chiyo and certainly not Nerissa nor Rian. The race for the final piece of the puzzle continues with several OMGs escaping from my lips. If it falls into the wrong hands it will... I d ...more

The adventure continues.

Now that Naressa is back in the city and on the throne she can start her adventure as royalty. This book has twist and turns all around. Her life is threatened and her loyal friends help her.

How long until the sixth book? Holy crap, what a cliffhanger! Excellent series. Original premise, very well drawn characters and simply marvelous story-telling.
