About the Book:

Title: The Green Princess Trilogy: Flourish (Book 3) | Author: H.L. Burke | Pages: 283 | Genre: Fantasy | Recommended Ages: Young Adult and up

Book Description:

Bryce and Kitrin defied kings and magic to be together.

On the eve of happiness, an act of dark magic creates a barrier between them. One too strong even for love to overcome.

A sprung trap separates Bryce from his friends and beloved Kit. Assumed dead by his allies in the flora magi rebellion, he finds himself at the mercy of his closest relative—and greatest enemy—Fire King Langstyn. With foul powers, the heartless king turns Bryce into a weapon against Kit.

Pregnant, alone, and believing her beloved lost forever, vengeance burns within Kit's heart. Langstyn stole the only man she'll ever love. Kit won't rest until he's paid for his crimes.

When the truth of Bryce's captivity reaches her, Kit's torn between standing with the rebel army and sacrificing everything to save her beloved. The flora magi need her as their leader. Her unborn child needs her care. But Bryce is her heart.What good is victory if it means heartbreak?

My Review:

Flourish, the final book in The Green Princess Trilogy, is intense! Bryce gets ripped away from Kit at a time when she needs him most. She's pregnant with their first child when she hears the most devastating news that Bryce is dead. But there are some things worse than death as both Kit and Bryce are both about to find out.

Wynna, who we meet in Book 2, plays a key role in Book 3. I knew that I wanted to see more of her and so I was glad when that was the case. Regyn is just as awesome as usual. He gets a lot of good lines in this book and Wynna too. Sprout, the plant dragon, plays a very minor role this time. I would have liked to have seen the plant dragons being utilized in at least one battle. This book has a powerful final chapter with the epilogue being the icing on the cake!

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Nyssa Glass's Clockwork Christmas
A Christmas Novelette by H.L. Burke

Nyssa Glass's Clockwork Christmas: A Christmas Novelette by [Burke, H. L.]

My Review:

Nyssa Glass's Clockwork Christmas is a stand-alone novelette reminiscent of O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi." I've always loved that story and this one won't disappoint. H.L. Burke's rendition is full of steampunk references with a few surprises and plenty of interesting characters.

Nyssa and Ellis are both good at tinkering and creating new inventions. They also have each other's backs. This will be their first Christmas together and they both want to find each other the perfect gift. Things don't always go as planned and things go downhill before they go up.

I recommend that you read at least one other book in the series first to understand the main characters better, but it's not completely necessary. Some of the back story is scantily explained to help the reader follow along, which is a good thing, because too much recapping can get tedious. This is an awesome steampunk Christmas story and I highly recommend it!

About the Author:
H.L. Burke

Born in a small town in north central Oregon, H. L. Burke spent most of her childhood around trees and farm animals and always accompanied by a book. Growing up with epic heroes from Middle Earth and Narnia keeping her company, she also became an incurable romantic.

An addictive personality, she jumped from one fandom to another, being at times completely obsessed with various books, movies, or television series (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek all took their turns), but she has grown to be what she considers a well-rounded connoisseur of geek culture.

Married to her high school crush who is now a US Marine, she has moved multiple times in her adult life but believes home is wherever her husband, two daughters, and pets are.
