Wolf Brother (Chronicles of Ancient Darkness) by Michelle Paver

I just love book trailers (can't you tell?)! They just make the books seem so much more exciting to read. I found quite a few book trailers for Wolf Brother on YouTube. Below is my favorite one. If my review doesn't convince you to pick up this book, maybe the book trailer will. :)

The Jewel of Kalderash (Kronos Chronicles: Book III) by Marie Rutkoski

This is the third book, in the Kronos Chronicles trilogy. We first met Petra, Tomik, and Neel (our three main characters) in a bluebonnet nominee (and personal class favorite from two years ago) The Cabinet of Wonders. This is a fantasy trilogy set in medieval Prague filled with magic, adventure, action, a touch of romance, and a very power hungry, evil prince. If you haven't read the first two, you definitely will want to before you check this one out. I know our Lively library has the first two available. Here is a book trailer to give you a little background information on the first two books (The Cabinet of Wonders, The Celestial Globe)



And finally, my review for the Jewel of Kalderash (Kronos Chronicles: Book III)- ENJOY!
