Just my rambling, plus whatever book I've recently read!
Kiss Me, Curse Me is the first book by Kate Shay I have read, and I think I like the blurb of the book more than I liked the book itself, I'm sad to say.
I found this book quite difficult to get into, as the story seemed to flit from one occasion to the next. There is a multitude of characters involved, some of whom seem to have connections, although it's not very clear. The story itself is convoluted and twisting, with new characters and situations being brought in right the way through. The book didn't end, as much as it just stopped. I would think that it's the first in the series, but nothing has been released since so I don't think the author is continuing with this.
I wanted to like this book, but it fell rather flat for me. I think it's probably like a marmite book - you will love it or hate it. As for me, I didn't hate it, I just felt disappointed when I'd finished.

The Eye of Divinity is the first book in the Knights series. We meet Lannon, who has grown up on the outskirts of a village, without too much of anything. His parents argue a lot, and it is unclear to begin with whether his father is actually ill, or just a drunk with excuses. However, when three Knights turn up, they agree to take Lannon with them, to be trained as a Squire. It turns out Lannon has the eye of divinity, and with it, he could save the kingdom.
This is a fantasy story of old - with danger, quests, nobility, and all other such goodness supplied on demand. Lannon is a bit of a wimpy character, but does grow throughout the book. He isn't the best at anything (which makes a nice change), but has to learn instead. He isn't the bravest, and he definitely changes his mind and is easily persuaded. Still, he does have redeeming qualities too, and this is only the first book. I'm sure he will continue to grow as the books progress.
If you like fantasy with a spot of danger, then I can definitely recommend this book.
Robert E. Keller is a full-time fantasy writer and the author of the Knights Series. Previously a short fiction writer with many published stories to his credit, he turned his attention to novels in 2011 and has never looked back.
Robert was born in Northern Michigan and still lives there with his wife Tracy. He had a very active imagination from the time he was old enough to become self aware, and he would invent elaborate fantasy and science fiction stories in his mind. It was only natural for him to begin spending much of his time crafting short stories and novels on the computer screen. Many of the ideas in those tales were discovered on long walks through the woods.
