The Traveler by E.B. Dawson, is a sci-fi fantasy novel set in what feels like a futuristic, technologically-advanced world. Whether or not that world is our future, or another, remains to be determined. Our main character, Anissa Robson, is starting in her new position as an intern to a politician. In this world, everything is automated and the people don't dream. Literally, they do not dream. Except, Anissa has started to dream more and more frequently of another place, a simpler life in a gloriously beautiful land. Away from her bureaucratic nightmare of a job, away from the freezing rain and drudgery of her city, away from all the people who don't believe in the fantastical. Her dreams are deceivingly realistic, and more and more she wishes they were real.
The Once Upon A Princess Saga is a set of 4 novellas, Beauty's Curse, Beauty's Quest, Beauty's Kiss & Beauty's Gift, that is a re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. It is geared toward a teen-aged/young adult audience, but this 27 year old didn't have a hard time enjoying it.

The Beast of Talesend is a cleanly written detective/adventure story about real fairy tales. I think it goes without saying that it is an original idea. It is also a well-executed idea, with a lot of laughs and plenty of promise for future books.
Instead, the story is about faith. Faith in the unseen, the unproven, the benevolent. Gabriel's struggle is painful to read, because I think many of us would behave similarly if we found ourselves in the same situation. It makes you question the strength of your own faith. Faced with hell on earth, would you stay strong in your conviction, or would you falter and lose hope?
