Book Review: The Genesis Tree by Heather L. L. FitzGerald

She took down the Nephilim queen—but can she and her brother save the kingdom?

Sadie Larcen may have defeated the traitorous Queen Estancia, but she’s quite happy to be home with her family. Unfortunately, their fiendish neighbor, Mr. Marshall, is still up to no good. He’s called a press conference with plans to introduce the world to a living, breathing Bigfoot.

As a Sasquatch expert, Sadie’s mother Amy is coerced into lending her expertise to the spectacle. When Sadie and her brother Brady spy nefarious, uninvited guests at the gathering, they know there’s trouble brewing in the Tethered World. The two are driven into separate, dangerous exploits as they are thrust back into the schemes of the forces of darkness. Schemes that include using their autistic brother Brock as leverage to seize control of the Flaming Sword and the Tree of Life. The Gargoyles and Trolls have an ambition that extends beyond dominating these powerful elements. They’ve set their sights on the Topside realm—with or without the help of Mr. Marshall.

Deception is rampant, the enemy is subtle, and love dares to tug at Sadie’s heart amid the turmoil below. Once again, she and Brady will cling to God’s faithfulness as they fight for the people and creatures they care for, and against the enemies they fear.

Will the cost be more than they can endure?

Having followed the journey of the Larcen family almost from its conception, it is difficult to believe the final book has been published and now I have to say goodbye. What a satisfying, but heart-breaking goodbye it is, too.

Enya: Dark Sky Island

I’ve never written reviews before, for which reason today’s post might come as a surprise. However, I have good reason for starting now:



In case my reaction didn’t give it away, Enya happens to be one of my favorite musical artists. I don’t turn crazy fan-girl for just anyone, either. She’s one of the lucky few. 😉 In fact, she’s a member of the select group of artists whose albums I will go out of my way to buy the day it is released–and by “album” I mean the actual physical CD.
