The Eleventh Trade, (2018)
by Alyssa Hollingsworth
I just took this out of the public library and it sounds pretty amazing for fantasy fans.
And good news: according to Goodreads this is the first in a series. The opening quote hooked me:
"It is a fact that all who have lived have lived through some loss and heartache. Yes, there is happiness, but everyone alive experiences sadness at one time or another. If you ache you are not unusual - friends disappoint, betrayal is real, and there is always the possibility of losing someone dear. It is worrisome to begin a story beneath shades of shadow and gloom but it is wise to remember that despite all the worry there is magic afoot."
Wizard for Hire (Wizard for Hire #1), (2018)
by Obert Skye
This is an incredibly interesting picture book biography about a well known actress whose real passion was inventing.
