This is the sort of thing authors love to hear: "When I read Into Otherness, I was so transported away into the story that at one point, I lowered my book, looked outside at the mountains in which our house is located, and half expected to see dragons flying about. Sometimes, it's hard to remember that these characters and events have come from someone's imagination and aren't actually going to be in history lessons my kids sit through at school."
Drink Read Love is a blog pairing books + drinks. "Grab a drink and a book and get ready to read."
Full disclosure: The author of the referenced blog is my daughter, but she would not praise these books if she did not think them worthy on their own merits. If I didn't trust her objectivity, I would not quote the review or link to it. Life is too short for such shenanigans.
