It's been a while since I've posted about a book!

Today, I want to share a book called Eventide by Tracy & Laura Hickman, from Shadow Mountain Publishing.

It's the first in a series called "Tales of the Dragon's Bard".

This is the story of the quest of a young man who feels unworthy of the hand of the woman he loves. It is also an amusing collection of glimpses into the other characters who live in the village of Eventide. From mischievious pixies, to the town gossip fairy, to the haunted mansion outside of town, to the gnombs (who legally do not exist), this book is full of amusing and frustrating occurences! Although they take place in a fantasy novel, with wish-women, dwarves, magic and dragons, you can totally see some of these things happening in "real life" in slightly different ways.

Just thinking back on some of the funny things that happen in the novel makes me want to tell you some stories from it. But I'll hold back so that you can fully enjoy the story when you read it!

Disclosure: I received this book through Deseret Book, from Shadow Mountain Publishing, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated in any other way for this post and the thoughts I'm sharing are my own.


  1. I can't wait to read this one. I didn't know they were LDS. I just looked them up on Wikipedia. I've read their other books. I always thought they were sisters not a married couple.

  2. Almost done. I'll bring it back on Sunday, unless you'll be at Betsy's tonight. I loved this book. It was so quirky and fun.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment- I love reading them! :)
