Power Study Power Study” is an eight chapter side story written from the perspectives of two characters from the series: Ari and Janco.This novella falls between Magic Study and Fire Study. This book was supposed to be a fun read, common you have two amazing characters here Ari and Janco, but then it failed badly. Ari and Janco kind of came across as more annoying than amusing. I don’t know why I bothered to pick this up but I regret doing that. No offense for those who find this mind blowing, fantastic and humorous read. 

Its about Ari and Janco dealing with a cocky young soldier with a Sitian magic sword. My rating: 1 out of 5. If you are already into this series you can just skip this and it won’t even make a difference.

4450057Assassin Study is a quick novella, following Poison Study,  to give a brief link to the Magic Study. I loved the first book. Poison Study in the Study series. I usually don’t like to read mini sequels following the main novel, because I find them unnecessary and useless.

As everyone is busy cleaning up the mess after  Brazell and Mogkan, Valek discovers that an assassin has gone to hunt down Yelena as she travels to her ancestral homeland. Valek rushes to Sitia to intercept the assassin and rescue his love. Will Valek survive in Magic land of Sitia?  Who is this assassin trying to kill Yelena?

Its a quick read of around 15 pages. My rating: 2 out of 5.  There is not much of a story here, so you won’t miss much if you skip it. 

howlsmovingcastleI love stories where magic is involved, like ”Harry Potter series” and  ”Chronicles of Narnia”. For some reason I have been reading a lot of good books lately, & I am happy that I found this book to read.

Howl’s Moving Castle is one of those books, that I wish I would have written it! Sophie Hatter lives with her step mother, step sister and a sister, being eldest sister she thinks that her fortune is not going to be good. She’s a young woman living in a world where fairy tales and magic are a part of everyday life. People are scared of Howl the wizard and witch of Waste. Because Howl eats young girl’s hearts and witch of Waste is dangerous. Due to some unexpected twists Sophie gets under Withe’s spell and she is not young anymore, she is old. Worst part of the spell is that she can’t tell to anyone that she is enchanted. Now Sophie,old and tiered wants to find a place to stay away from everyone, but she ends up getting into Howl’s moving castle. It is wonderful tale of Magic and love.I don’t know how to write more that that.

After reading the book, I watched animated movie by the same name: Howl’s moving castle. Movie was good, but I liked the book more.  You will travel to magic world while reading about  floating castle, talking fires, bouncing scarecrows, and amazing spells.By the way Howl is my favorite character apart from Sophie, oh my god! I like Michael too 🙂  My ratings are 4 out of 5.
