Song of Sovereign (Songs of Everealm #1)
 J.D. Wright
Genre: Adult Fantasy
Release Date: July 2016

Summary from Goodreads:
Princess Sarita has everything. Loving parents, a castle fit for royalty, fine clothes, loyal friends, and an exciting job as a scholar of magic. At eighteen years of age, one might think that she would be content with her position. But one thing has always been missing from her life... full magic, itself.

When a strange old woman gave Sarita a secret spellbook as a child, her entire life was changed. The book contains spells, songs, and stories. But most of all, it provides a path to gaining full magic, the only thing that Sarita still needs to feel complete. And now, she has finally prepared to leave her home in search of the Stones of the Divine, the final ingredient she needs to gain magic.

Gabrielle has been known as the sister of a knight and best friend of the princess for as long as she can remember. Now an experienced healer's assistant, she is desperate to find her place and purpose in Junacave. An adventurous mission to help Sarita locate a mystical stone may be just the change in her life that she is looking for.

King Cassidy is still alone, but not for a lack of trying. His attempts to convince the Princess of Junacave to marry him over the past ten years have been for naught. And being twenty years old, with no heir, he is running out of time. If he can't win the heart of the princess, he may have to face a future without the love of his life.

My Review

So, I read the series that came before this one and I absolutely LOVED it. This is the spin off that is the addition to the first series but it's now their kids! I will say that if you didn't read the first series, it's ok, the author does a fantastic job of adding just enough info for you to know that something beautiful came before but that it never made me feel like I NEEDED to read the series before. It was done perfectly and it's a GREAT story. 

Sarita, Cassidy, Oliver, and Gabby (remember Reeve's baby sister) are all grown up and it's so freaking cute! And they have their own adventures, and love lives, and drama, and things going on around them. So, let's start with Sarita. She's 18 and wants magic. She is set to go on an adventure to find a stone that will help her get the gift of magic for herself. She brings Gabby along with her. And Cassidy, being in love with Sarita follows them. Cassidy wants Sarita to be his queen, he wants to love her and marry her, and she just keeps saying no. It's actually quite funny. And Gabby and Oliver are still in love with each other, but are now both engaged to different people. That's just complicated. And I seriously hope something freaking fixes itself really soon. Calli is Oliver's new girl/fiance and Garrison is Gabby's. Dead God, I hope Garrison and Calli end up together because they are perfect for each other just like Oliver and Gabby are. And we also get to see all or several of all our old friends and we meet some new ones too. 

I won't lie, it's got the same feel as the everealm series, but it's NOT the same. I loved this one just as much as Everealm but for different reasons. And I definitely had a lot of different reactions to this book. There's some great suspense- I was dying to see if Sarita would get the stone, if she would fall for Cassidy, if she would find everything she was looking for. I'm seriously hopeful for Oliver and Gabby. I am looking forward to seeing what's going to happen in the realm in the future and I really can't wait! The romance is a little different than the first series, but it's still oh so good! It's going to be a beautiful ride and I can't wait to see how things turn out!! EXCELLENT!! 5 PAWS!! 

Song of Sparrows (Songs of Everealm #2)

Summary from Goodreads:

The journey across Everealm to find the magical stones has not come without its challenges. After being plagued by unwanted guests, disagreements, and accidents, Princess Sarita is beginning to wonder if her dream of gaining magic is a fantasy that can't come true. 

Along the way, new friends and rekindled sparks between old flames have caused quite a stir within the group. As a new wizard joins the effort and gives the princess a reason to continue, the quest for the next stone ensues...

About the Author
Writing has always been a hobby of mine, beginning as a young child. It was a way to cope with losing my father at seven years of age. I started with poetry and was featured several times on the amazing poetry blog, Autumn Leaves, by Sondra Ball. My love for poetry soon led to writing songs in middle school and beyond, which I still do occasionally. Music has always been an important part of my existence, so writing songs came naturally to me. In high school, I started my own novel, however, life got in the way and I never finished it.

Fast forward many years later and I find myself married with three children, absorbed in my busy life with commitments to my family, work, school, church, and charities, among other things. One day I came across my old binder, with notes from my first novel, and it was with those notes that I conjured up the elusive Everealm.

I write to please readers such as myself, who have a love for fantasy and romance, but like a little danger and sex in their reading. I wrote the book with a mature audience in mind, who can appreciate a hearty imaginary world with magic and the unknown, but want more than fluffy love stories with wizards in them. They want the romance, magic, and danger, all wrapped into one.
