#BookReview of #TheGrumpyFairy from #ReadersFavorite - https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/the-grumpy-fairy

Reviewed by JB McPherson for Readers' Favorite

The Grumpy Fairy: A Grumpy Fairy Tale Book 1 by Elizabeth Dunlap is a witty read for those who love fairy tales and sarcasm. There are funny magical bits, like frog princes begging to be unenchanted, and clever fairy world bits, like learning that fairies are naturally tiny but can make themselves regular size. I especially liked the friendship between the fairy and her bird friend. This unlikely friendship gives the first clue that there is more to the story. Don’t let Drusinella’s prickly exterior fool you—inside, there’s a real, complex person. Drusinella’s quirky view of life drew me into the story, and I enjoyed the details that turned the fairy tale genre upside down. Dunlap creates an interesting premise (a grumpy fairy exiled from Fairy Land) and a chain of events that kept me reading to the end. I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it’s just as surprising as the grumpy fairy.

My favorite part of the book is Drusinella’s attitude. She works hard to keep up her grumpiness until we begin to wonder why. We see Drusinella processing the first inklings of inner change, and she reacts just as we would expect: grumpily! But through it all, we can’t help cheering for Drusinella and hoping that she will resolve some issues while staying herself. For those who enjoy a light read with interesting characters, The Grumpy Fairy by Elizabeth Dunlap is fun! And for those who have grumpy days, visit Drusinella’s world for an hour or two. Laughter is the best medicine. This is a wonderful story!

For the past several months I’ve been so busy as a cover designer I’ve been neglecting my own writing. As the next year approaches, I hope to have the time to finish my latest projects and publish my next book! I re-designed the Aero short story series…

#BookReview of #KnightoftheHunted from #ReadersFavorite - https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/knight-of-the-hunted

Reviewed by Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite

In Knight of the Hunted (Born Vampire Book 1) by Elizabeth Dunlap, Lisbeth is a 400-year-old respected Born Vampire, with the responsibility of training the humans they have ‘turned’ in the rules of vampire etiquette. When a Lycan child mistakenly wanders into enemy territory, Lisbeth breaks the rules she has always lived by and returns the child to the Lycans. Now she must run from The Hunters from her own kind, or pay with her life. Lisbeth, hungry for blood, discovers an unlikely ally in a Lycan named Knight. They mistakenly enter a town run by a callous Vampire called James, whose ultimate desire is to make Lisbeth his own and rid her of Knight. Lisbeth and Knight must use all of their knowledge and strength to try to escape James’ clutches. Together, they must learn to trust one another if they are to survive. But why is Knight away from his pack? Is he hiding from something too?

From the first sentence, ‘I woke to the scent of blood in my room’, this enthralling story had me hooked. The author is a master at building unique, likeable characters that each have their strengths and weaknesses. The plot moved forward constantly, building suspense as the Hunters closed in on Lisbeth and Knight. There were some close shaves when I could not see them escaping. Lisbeth is a strong, warm-hearted character who has great morals. Knight was an absolutely terrific character; his dark humour, sarcasm and sense of loyalty were superb. There is an obvious detailed backstory to Lisbeth that I am hoping will be covered in future novels in this series. I would love to know the history behind the feud between the Vampires and the Lycans. I would also like to discover more about Lisbeth’s parents and Balthazar. The climactic ending will leave you desperate to know how the story continues. This is a refreshing look at the Vampire genre. A story of an endearing, but unlikely romance and the fight to stand up for what you believe to be morally right.

Being an author, it’s all about the way you present things. The covers. The blurb. The advertisements. Everything is about getting more readers excited about your work! Keeping with that, I decided to re-design my Born Vampire series covers, just to see…

Chapter One Upstate, New York Present day I woke up to the scent of blood in my room. Blood and coffee. I opened my eyes and saw my companion sitting in my armchair, sipping a mug and playing a game on his phone. I narrowed my eyes at him when I noticed…
