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 Iron King - Julie Kagawa I must admit I was a bit sceptical when I first started reading yet another young adult love story. But truthfully, this is one of the few jewels I've read in a while, thus the four stars.I must say I enjoy reading how Meghan sees the world around her, she's not your typical heroine and I guess that's what endearing about her. Also Puck and Ash are actually quite amusing to read about, Puck more so than Ash. I do however have one sticking point and that is that I found the "love" growing between Meghan and Ash was too quick. In my own opinion I found there was too little built up (like most young adult romance novels these days). What with Ash being cold and distant most of the book, it just felt a bit too rushed. But as I said, that's just my personal opinion. Seeing as how most young adult books these days have "instant love" in them, I'll learn too get used to it. But despite all that, this was a really good book and I did enjoy reading it. Original review on:http://booknutstephanie.blogspot.be/2013/04/review-iron-king-by-julie-kagawa.html
