About the Author

Geanna Culbertson adores chocolate chip cookies, watching Netflix in pajamas, and the rain. Of course, in her case, the latter is kind of hard to come by. As her dad notes, “In California, we don’t have seasons, we have special effects.” On the flip side, she is deeply afraid of ice skating and singing in public. Although, she forces herself to do both on occasion because she believes facing your fears can be good for you. During the week Geanna lives a disciplined, yet preciously ridiculous lifestyle. She gets up each day at dawn to train and write. Goes to work where she enjoys a double life as a kid undercover in a grown-up world. Then comes home, eats, writes, and watches one of her favorite TV shows. On weekends, however, Geanna’s heart, like her time, is completely off the leash. Usually she’ll teach martial arts at her local karate studio, pursue yummy foods, and check out whatever’s new at her fav stores. To summarize, she’ll wander, play, disregard the clock, and get into as many shenanigans as possible.

From the start of the book to the end, Geanna keeps us in suspense and thinking of what will happen next. I could not put the book down and had to downloaded it on my phone so that every chance I had I would read on till I finally finished the book! Geanna does not let us down with the story continuing in its adventure to get to the Author in order to change her destiny. Now I can’t wait to start book 3 and experience once again the adventures and this wonderful world of “Book” that Geanna puts us in.

Crisanta Knight is back! :) Imagine a world of Book, where a mysterious author decides whether you'll be a protagonist, an antagonist, a hero, a princess. Crisanta Knight, the daughter of Cinderella and Prince Charming doesn't want to be just a damsel in distress and decides to re-write her story. In order to do that, she embarks on a dangerous journey with four of her friends. The second book picks up right where the first one ended, and we still read about our characters trying to fight against their prophecy, but this time the author also touched upon the theme of trust - trusting oneself and trusting other people. Once again, Crisanta is a strong and ambitious character, who would do anything to change her destiny and have control over her life but also, her character became more complex as she fought with her inner instincts and uncertainty whether she can trust everyone around her. She's determined to prove everyone that despite what people think about her and the archetype she should conform to, she's capable of so much more and I admire her for it. I also really enjoyed seeing her character development, as Crisa had to understand what she really feels and allow other people in. It was good to see that other characters went through some growth as well. As in the first book, the worldbuilding continues to be amazing. In this installment we see a lot more of the fairytale lands and I also felt like there was more action. We visited more magical realms, the magic train, our "human" world, where we met a lot of fantastic creatures and generally learned more about the worlds created by the author. I especially loved the little nod to the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. I feel like the pace was much faster, our characters had more fun adventures and the story was really enjoyable and easy to follow. I began to get used to Crisa's long inner monologues and accepted it as her character trait, and the flashbacks/visions introduced to the story made everything even more interesting. I liked it that some of the storylines from previous book were tied up, and we got new questions that are waiting for answers. Overall, I think that Crisanta Knight series is a really original and fun series for all those who love fairytales and would want an interesting, fresh retelling. The Severance Game was a truly good, engaging continuation of the story and I can't wait to see what happens next! :)

The stakes have escalated significantly. The mysteries of this realm and the shadow of things to come continue to grow deeper in this action-packed sequel. No spoilers, but we’ve learned world shattering news for our young heroes. It’s changes the game into something much bigger than they thought and much more seriously sinister. In this second installment of the Crisanta Knight series, the characters you’ve come to love deal with the consequences of uncovering secrets that hold their society together and pieces of the antagonists’ plan to tear it all to shreds. Crisa especially has a lot to learn in this book as she struggles to break out of a suffocating class system and measure her own value, often with mixed results. She is unapologetically herself, and it’s great to have a flawed female protagonist leading you through these pages. Her difficult internal journey will ring true for anyone who has struggled with falling short of the persona they want to exude. This series is a wonderful YA read for kids and adults alike and I highly recommend giving it a try.

Good characters & plot. Really good dialogue. This author writes well enough the reader can forget she is there. That's good writing.
