Mythological Mondays (5)

Mythological Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Bonnie at A Backwards Story to bring attention to all things myth related.

For this week's Mythological Mondays, I decided to showcase an older series that features a few Greek mythology characters. The Icemark Chronicles by Stuart Hill has Cronus and Medea as major characters. Of course, both of these characters are evil in the series.

I haven't read this series yet. It's still sitting on my TBR shelf collecting dust, but I am drawn to the covers. They are amazing. From what I can tell from the synopsis on each book's back cover, there is a fair blending of fantasy/paranormal with the mythology undertones.


Icemark Chronicles: The Cry of the Icemark Blade of Fire (The Icemark Chronicles 2) Icemark Chronicles: Last Battle of the Icemark

Aren't these covers amazing? Here's what the back cover of book 3 (Last Battle of the Icemark) says:

Medea Clytemnestra Strong-In-The-Arm Lindenshield: Raven-haired and with raging eyes, she has chosen a troubled path, giving herself willingly to the Darkness ruled by her grandfather, Cronus, embodiment of all evil. Tainted by his bloodline, she burns for revenge against her hated brother, Sharley. Ever since Medea's exile, the Icemark has enjoyed a period of peace and prosperity... But banishment did not kill Medea: It made her stronger. Allied with Cronus, she is raising an army of the undead to invade her family's kingdom! Does her warrior sister, Cressida, possess the strength to vanquish Medea at last? Or must her father, the warlock Oskan, summon his own black magic to stop her?
For those that don't remember, Medea was from the story of Jason and the Argonauts (and the golden fleece). She was the granddaughter of Helios, and was known to be a follower of Hectate.

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
