The Black Star of Kingston | Book Review

After reading S.D. Smith‘s first children’s novel, The Green Ember, (read my thoughts on it here) I quickly ordered this little volume, as well as book two of The Green Ember Series, Ember Falls. The Black Star of Kingston is a great read. It’s a prequel of sorts, taking the reader to a time before Heather and Picket,Continue reading “The Black Star of Kingston | Book Review”

In this book he tackles money andContinue reading “Root of All Evil? | Book Review”

Clark tells an exciting and believable story centered on the Word ofContinue reading “The Messengers: Discovered | Book Review”
