Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Square 5: An anxiously awaited book release

I decided not to get the cat advent calendar. It wasn't cost effective. Instead I've chosen one of the alternative tasks - to tell you about something I'm looking forward to, a new book release!


If you've followed me for any length of time you'll know I love time travel stories and follow the Time Shifters series by Shanna Lauffey, the Chronicles of the Harekaiian. The next book has been taking too long!


There was a bombshell at the end of episode 7 that has me salivating to find out what happens next. Not a cliffhanger, just a change in things.


The author's blog says it's coming soon now. I can't wait!
