Ascendant Revolution

 Wow!  This is the third book in the series.  I definitely recommend that you check out books 1 and 2 to get the full experience, but even this third installment will blow your mind.  Easily a 5 star read.  Great characters, realistic dialogue, and a chilling (believable) setting.

Ascendant Unrest

 ASCENDANT UNREST is the second book in the Faded Skies series.  Think action scenes and killer dialogue.  My favorite thing about Matthew Cox’s books are the dialogue.   They’re witty, realistic, and catchy.  You want to know more about the characters.  You want to actually know the characters in real life.


This is not a book to read intermittently.  Once I sat down, I couldn’t stop.  I ended up reading much too late to find out what happens next.  I had read book one previously, and I do recommend starting there so you can get the full experience.

The Shadow Fixer

 The Shadow Fixer is book six of the Division Zero series, and like the other five books, this one really packs a punch!  I love Kirsten.  I love the setting.  There’s humor, description…the chance to lose yourself in a new world.  This book is all about action, so don’t start it if you’re about to go to bed.  That was my problem, and I ended up staying awake most of the night trying to finish it so I could know what happened next!

Savannah of Barn Town


What a cute story!  The pace is perfect for keeping a child’s interest.  The plot is exciting and fun, and the characters are all engaging.  I’m recommending this to my teacher friends as an installment for their classrooms.


The illustrations are colorful and eye-catching for children.

A Forgotten Past

 Ooh, this was good.  It had everything I love about an epic fantasy adventure.   The setting is well detailed and the magic is explained without getting too nitty-gritty.  I was worried at first that there were too many characters, but I quickly came to understand them.  Each was unique.  I’m excited to see where the sequel takes us.

Mad Magic

 Wow.  I was expecting a fantasy tale, but nothing so imaginative and delightful.  I’ve read multiple “Alice in Wonderland” stories, and this one has got to be a favorite.  Even if you’re not into Wonderland, give this book a try. You won’t be disappointed.

 Matthew Cox delivers another science fiction/paranormal winner.  You don’t always get sci-fi with plot and characters, but he presents a well-rounded story that keeps you wanting more.  I swear, he’s the master of ending a chapter where you can’t wait to read the next one.


Onto book 6!
