October 2014 Is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October 2014 Is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence has generated enormous press with the NFL the last few weeks. However domestic violence is not limited to over paid athletes. Domestic violence plagues ordinary people, every single day. I am offering the Kindle version of Mommy's Black Eye FREE from October 1st to October 5th to promote awareness of domestic violence.

City of Dragons by Robin Hobb

This is the third book of the Rain Wilds Chronicles. If you have not read the Live Ship Traders Trilogy I strongly recommend you read it. It isn’t necessary to read it first but I think it helps. This book chronicles a journey of epic efforts to get the dragons to their ancient homeland.

I’m never sure where to start talking about one of Robin Hobb’s books. Not many author’s make me tongue tied. She so vividly portrays the Rain Wilds that you feel like you have been there. There was also a sense of coming home in that there was a familiarity with her style and her setting.

The emotional interplay is well written and sometimes borderline overwhelming. Admittedly I get over involved when I am reading. I am such a sucker for the bonds of friendship and the portrayal of love as well as loving a good adventure story. These are not stereotype dragons but they are still dragonesque!

I highly recommend the book.
