Tara's Book Review: Night Runner by Max Turner

 

Okay, get ready, because you’re only going to hear this once—I just read a vampire book and liked it. Night Runner is an interesting spin on the grossly overdone vampire novel. Zack lives in a mental institution—not because he’s crazy, but it’s the only place where he can have the special care he needs. He’s allergic to the sun, can only drink red smoothies, and seems to have some superhuman strength...sound familiar? When a crazy old man drives into (not up to, but into) the asylum and tells Zack he has to run for his life, he starts to learn the truth about who he really is and what forces are against him.

Lisa's Book Review: Eragonís Guide to AlagaŽsia by Christopher Paolini

If you are a fan of Eragon and are craving more, this novelty companion to the original book will be a feast for your senses.Presented as an introductory guide for new dragon riders as penned by Eragon Shadeslayer, the lush illustrations and imaginative layout display the lands, history, beings and culture of Alagaësia. From the same designers who brought us the “ology” series of books (Dragonology, Pirateology, Egyptology and others), this latest creation is bursting with kinesthetic fantasy relics including flower petals, fur, fabric, gems and dragon knucklebones.
