Frayed – A Madison Lark Novella by Blakely Chorpenning

I’ve become more and more interested lately in good shifter stories, especially with a kick-ass heroine at the helm. So when I received “Frayed – A Madison Lark Novella” from new author (and fellow reviewer over at BookCountry), Blakely Chorpenning I was happy to find that kind of heroine in Madison “Fray” Lark, a leopard shifter.

( 2xKnight’s note: I received this book from the publisher at no cost to myself)

After reading Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay I couldn’t wait to read Lord of Emperors, even though it was the second book in a series.

The Last Airbender

Looking at The Last Airbender

The Last Airbender
Note: No real spoilers contained

As a person of mixed racial descent, I have this to say:  Don’t let ignorant race baiting prevent you from going to see The Last Airbender or overshadow your enjoyment of the film.  It’s a magical fable of balance and imbalance, harmony and disharmony, action and consequence, power and loss, innocence and character growth.  It transcends racial and gender stereotypes, but only if you let it.  If you can’t recapture your youth and suspend your disbelief, borrow a kid and see it through new eyes.
