Received for Review                 Corsair by James Cambias – This just sounded like a fun Sci-Fi book with space pirates and hackers, I’ve already listened and reviewed this one (and enjoyed it!).

Since I don’t read a lot of YA, I had missed it until now, but I was in the mood for something lighter, and this really fit the bill and now I’ll be ready for Hidden Huntress which is coming out soon! Watch for my review of Stolen Songbird sometime this week. Once again, many thanks to Audible Studios! A Murder of Mages by Marshall Ryan Maresca – I will admit, detective stories usually don’t appeal to me a whole lot. But after enjoying The Thorn of Dentonhill so much, I’m really looking forward to checking this one out (the first in a parallel…
