Stephanie Beerden

Stephanie Beerden was born on Friday the 13th (no joke, she really was) in a small city called Genk and has always been fascinated with the occult, magic and books. Her childhood and teen years were filled with reading lots and lots of books and imagining what life would be like as a real Vampire. Until one day she decided that she wanted to try her hand at writing her own books and that was the beginning of her writing adventure. Her first book is a YA Fantasy called De Elementen – Het Verloren Koninkrijk and after many, many trials and tribulations, one small Dutch publisher decided “Hey, let’s give this girl a shot”. Her second book De Elementen – Archandir has recently been published by same publisher and she couldn’t be happier about that. Stephanie hopes to keep writing as long as she can and already has several writing projects in the works for the future.

The Necromancer's Apprentice - R.M. Prioleau *Received a free copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*I liked this novella. It was dark, macabre and exactly what I wanted to read. I'll also be honest when I say that this novella won't be for everyone, some might find it boring or too short or not to their taste. But I liked it.The story itself is fast-paced and unpredictable at times. So if you do read this novella, read carefully! Otherwise if you skip over parts or words, it becomes easy to get confused with the story. As for the characters, there wasn't much character development, but Jasmine does show some change throughout the story, particularly her attitude towards Master Dagg.I admit I would have liked a little bit more backstory on Jasmine, her family and the world she lived in and also the religion. Because there are mentions of a Goddess named Celestra and a few other minor things. All in all it's a good novella, truly something worth reading at least once. Which is also why I'm giving it 3 stars as I believe it deserves it.Original review on: http://booknutstephanie.blogspot.be/2013/06/review-necromancers-apprentice-by-rm.html
