Spellcaster- George Bachman

Spellcaster by George Bachman
Released: April 3rd 2018
Pages: 262
Buy it: Amazon

In a turn-of-the century England steeped in steampunk and magic, sixteen year-old Christine Daniel learns her life-threatening illness stems from her paranormal visions. During the London Season, Allie, her beloved sister and the family heir, seeks a noble match while she searches the occult underground for answers. But the only witch who can help will not do so unless Allie marries her beau, an impoverished aristocrat, so that the illicit pair can share Allie's wealth. 

Review-  I was very excited by the plot.  I was enjoying the way it was written. There were characters I loved and other characters I did enjoyed the beginning of the book,  even though it was going a little slow.  I got a bit distracted and confused by the middle.

I was quite liking Christine.  She was a very good character to follow. I got some if the other characters mixed up every now and then.  Once I got through that, there were characters I really like other I didn't.

 If I did not get distracted I might of enjoyed it better.  I was intrigued to how it would end.  Even though I was a bit distracted, overall I rather enjoyed it.

In the end I gave this book, 3/5.

 Author Bio: When Olivia Hardin started having movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long, the writing bug had bitten her, and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again. In November 2011 Olivia sent her first novel, Witch Way Bends, out into the world; and to date, she has over fifteen novels and short stories available both in print and digital.

Hatshepsut: The Pharaoh-Queen of Egypt - in60learning

 I received this book from In60Learning in exchange for a honest review.

Hatshepsut: The Pharaoh-Queen of Egypt by in60learning
Released: February 3rd 2018
Pages: 38
Buy it: Amazon

Get smarter in just 60 minutes with in60Learning . Concise and elegantly written non-fiction books and audiobooks help you learn the core subject matter in 20% of the time that it takes to read a typical book. Life is short, so explore a multitude of fascinating historical, biographical, scientific, political, and financial topics in only an hour each.

When Pharaoh Thutmose II died, he left an heir far too young to rule Egypt. His widow Hatshepsut stepped up to take his place. For at least the next 20 years, Hatshepsut ruled as Pharaoh King of Egypt in an era of prosperous growth and peace. When she died, her nephew Thutmose III attempted to smear her good name and wipe her memory from history. However, despite his efforts, his aunt Hatshepsut holds the title of most famous native Egyptian woman to ever rule as pharaoh; she also retains a legacy as one of the most successful female leaders in early history.

Review:  In60Learning is a new publishing brand that produces concise overviews for a range of topics.  At the moment it is historical and biographical but science and technology are coming soon.  You can check out the title they have got here.

They have a good range on topics, but one topic that I have been interested for quite a while was Ancient Egypt.  So I  wanted to learn about Hatshepsut: The Pharaoh-Queen of Egypt.

The writing was great and the book was filled with lots of interesting facts.  I enjoyed the writing style and the way the chapters were spilt up.

Overall I enjoyed this book.  The writing was great.  Hatshepsut was really exciting person to read about.  The whole idea of In60Learning was fantastic and would probably be something I would try again.

I ended by giving this book a 4/5.
