Song of Sovereign (Songs of Everealm #1)
by 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.

Adventure, romance, and magic await as we travel through Everealm with royalty, wizards, fairies, and more, in the fantasy-romance Songs of Everealm, a five book series by J.D. Wright, author of the Everealm Series.

Note: Adult Content

Songs of Everealm Series is the second series set in the fantasy-filled Everealm. It begins 8 years after the conclusion of the first series, the Everealm Series. 


Review:

I love fantasy novels that have a strong, independent female as your lead character.  I know that in some minds they want the female characters to be princesses who need to be save, but in this book Sarita has a stubborn streak that keeps her from being that kind of princess.  She is strong, and I loved how she interacted with others.  She knows what she wants.

Cassidy is a strong king, but I like that he follows his heart and that leads him on an adventure with Sarita.  He calls her his princess but she likes to remind him that she is not his.  He just can't let it go and I love that he is so dead set on her.  He could have let go a long time ago and yet we see him following her, following his heart.

The two of them together, with the other characters that seem to all stick together, create this magical world I would love to be a part of.  Fairies, mages, humans, and I am sure so much more.  They come into contact with magic, with beautiful places and get to do this all together.  I think this book is a great start to a series that is sure to keep us all wanting more.  I could not put this book down once I started reading it.

If you are a fantasy lover, I would recommend this book for you!

Song of Sparrows (Songs of Everealm #2)
by J.D. Wright
Genre; Adult Fantasy
Release Date: July 2016

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...

As the sun rises over the ridge, our story continues into the Song of Sparrows!

Adult content. Intended for mature audiences. 


Review:
  
So we get to start where the last book left off.  Sarita is about to be inside Cassidy's castle.  She doesn't want to run into him and yet she ends up having to deal with him.  I love how she is struggling with her feelings while still trying to complete the quest she is on.  She knows that she has feelings for him but she has a plan, like Calista.

We get to see into the characters more in this book.  We have the emotional struggles that Gabby and Oliver are going through.  We have Asher and Emery's fusion that Asher is fighting.  We have Calista and her feelings toward magic and everything her mother taught her.  She struggles with what she was told and what she is seeing while out on the quest.

This book does not fail to draw you in like the last one did.  I can't wait to see what the next book brings us and what Sarita, Cassidy and the rest have to face.  We have new faces joining them on the quest for the stones.  We have some that are struggling but refuse to just turn and walk away.  This book brings us more of what the first book did.

Good look in putting it down!  I couldn't!

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.
