Review: Kyoko M.’s Of Cinder & Bone

My apologies for the late review, but life has kept me busy these past few months.

I won a copy of the novel via the author’s GoodReads giveaway

Review:

The novel’s a great read, it has everything a reader can ask for in a sci-fi/fantasy book.

I applaud the author’s characters who are not only well-developed characters but are diverse and inclusive. It was great to see that one of the main characters is a WOC AND she’s not the only WOC present. Back ground characters are also not one dimensional and also given something to do which is a plus.

The thing that appealed to me the most was how much research the author did in their approach to bringing a dragon to life. The method used in the story has a realistic feel which piqued my curiosity.  Of Cinder & Bone also brought a sense of awe and wonderment, almost like the first time I watched Jurassic Park on the big screen.

The story features action, tension, drama, and comedy and goes at a decent pace. But I expect that from this author. It’s risky to end a novel with a cliffhanger, but the move pays off because I want to know what happens next.  Plus, it makes the book stand out in a good way.

Overall, Of Cinder & Bone is an excellent story. I look forward to the sequel.

5/5

Reminder: Orniainthi Virtual Book Release Party Is This Friday

Friday, March 31st marks the print release of my mermaid fantasy novella Orniainthi.  In celebration of my book’s release, I’m inviting you to join me on my Facebook page from 1 to 3 pm eastern time for a Virtual Book Release Party.

About Orniainthi:

An incident during a group dive resigns oceanographer Dr. Viola E. Foy’s to her desk for eight years. That changes when she receives an urgent call from college friend, Dr. Devin Strucker. Now VP of the Future Underwater Colonization Agency (FUCA), they need Foy’s expertise for an exciting sea expedition.  

But the trip isn’t what it appears to be.

Dr. Foy finds herself betrayed and forced to dive into Andros Island’s mysterious Black Hole. There, an accident transforms her, altering her destiny and making her a target for FUCA and the US Navy.

More trouble arrives in the form of FUCA’s mysterious CEO Wendell Normand Galloway.  Re-emerging after years of seclusion, his plans threaten to doom the world to a watery grave.

Can Dr. Foy harness her new abilities, avoid capture and save the world in time?

 

During that time, I’ll discuss the novella and answer questions. There will be giveaways of ebook copies of my previous books and one print copy of Orniainthi. Remember,  to participate in the giveaways, you must like my Facebook page.

Before the party gets started, Advanced Reader Copies (ebook) of my novella are still available at Instafreebie.com (https://instafreebie.com/free/KDuB3) until March 31st.  Readers can also download their free copy of my horror short story and flash fiction collection, A Visit From The Soul Eater until that date.
