This week I got one book for review, The Puzzle Ring by Kate Forsyth (available now). Yay, Australian fantasy! Cat has already told me how good it is. It's one of my resolutions this year to read and review more Australian speculative fiction.
Hannah Rose Brown is twelve years old when she finds out that her family is cursed. Desperate to find the truth about her father' disappearance, she travels to her ancestral home in Scotland, and discover a chain of dark secrets that plunge her into different worlds, timeframes and dangers. This is another magical historical novel from the author of "The Gypsy Crown".

Thanks for making 2009 an awesome year, and extra special thanks to all my followers and commenters. You rock.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fantastic time, whatever they did. Better Days yesterday was a lovely intimate music festival--just two stages and one bar. The rain held off until just after we left, and boy, then did it storm! If you get the chance to see a Fred Falke (France) set in the future, do. He is a very talented producer and his remixes are lovely, all hands waving in the air and smiling faces. Very gentle and sweet. Here's Fred Falke remixing Will Young's "Tell me the worst".
