Mom and Dad told me a lot about their experiences at Gen Con this year, and I’m hoping I’ll get to go with them next time. There are costumes and jewelry to check out, souvenir t-shirts galore and booths full of comic books. And of course LOTS of games. There was even a special section dedicated to authors and graphic illustrators! I’ve been reading a lot lately and it is mostly things like The Hobbit and The Hunger Games. They brought me a pair of books by J.L. Clark, a new author they met at Fairytale Games‘ booth. She had been hired by them to write some of the story line for their new battle game, but had a couple of her books for sale at the show also.
The main thing I look for in books is action. I have always read books with action, but nothing can compare to Lilith Links from her “The Avalon Relics” series.. Lilith Links is a book where the main character, Sophia, turns 18 and gets a pair of bracelets from her mother. At her party, everything turns upside-down and she ends up in a world she didn’t know existed with her best friend, Angie. It turns out that Sophia possess a pair of magic links. Will she save her world and the Faeid World? Read the book to find out!
I really liked this book and found it really interesting. I loved the way each of the different characters were described, and their differences. Lilith Links has done an outstanding job with each of the characters.
I am starting to read to second book in the series, Lilian Crown, and I love the second book! Lots more adventure, action, romance, everything that anyone would love! I love these kind of books because they always make me believe that I can achieve more in life, succeed with a little more effort, do the best I can, and live my life to the fullest it could possibly be.
The adventure has been amazing with Sophia, and I hope that she comes to a happy ending! I think if you know of a girl that is about my age (12), she will also fall in love with Sophia and her story. The first book in the series is only $12 on Amazon and the second is a little more at $18 (but also twice as thick!). If you want to read them on a Kindle or iPad with the Kindle app, they’re only $3 and $5!
J.L. Clark also has her own website and I hope I get to meet her next year at Gen Con. She was nice enough to autograph my books for me and hopefully she will have another one in the series done by next summer! You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter!
