Fluffy Bunny by Sarah Buhrman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received an Advanced Reading Copy in exchange for a fair review.
I enjoyed Too Wyrd, the first book in this series, thoroughly (see my review here) so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on book 2. I think it’s fair to say I was primed to enjoy it, but fearful that I wouldn’t like it as much as I liked the first one.
There was nothing to fear. In book 2, we resume the story of Nicola, reluctant chosen hero of the Norse gods, charged to stop Ragnarok by obtaining the Runespells; bindrunes in physical form that represent the true power of the runes as shown to Odin after his ordeal on Yggdrasil.

It’s my pleasure to share with you the complete playlist of the Virtual Fantasy Con’s 2017 panel discussions. I had the honour of hosting three of them: Gender Issues in Fantasy, Realism in Fantasy Warfare, and Fantasy Mashups; you’ll find those ones near the end of the list. I’d like to thank all of the amazing authors whom I had the pleasure of speaking with! If you have an interest in fantasy fiction, I think these are well worth the watch.

The last of the three panels I had the honour of hosting for the Virtual Fantasy Con this year! In this one we discuss fantasy mashups. What happens when you blend fantasy with another genre? What are the benefits and the drawbacks? And at what point does a blend become a genre of its own? We have a panel full of fantasy mashup authors, and this was a lot of fun!
You can watch the entire playlist of the Virtual Fantasy Con panels HERE.
