Rec a Series: The Codex Alera

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. Last month, I recommended a newer urban fantasy/paranormal romance series set in an alternate dimension. This month, while wandering around AnomalyCon and with Emerald City ComicCon looming on the horizon, I’ll stick with pure fantasy. Let’s talk about the bet that became a best-selling series.

Rec a Series: The Blud Series

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. They aren’t reviews but a celebration of the things I like and hope others will like in return.
