Best 50 Books of 2016

How goes it my fellow bibliophiles? 2016 has been one hell of a year. This year we have seen the death of many a beloved celebrity, a sketchy election and monumental social action. As for books, well, this year I have read some truly amazing stories. From fiction to non-fiction, my world has been rocked by the talent and bravery of so many authors. AlliesOpinions reviews a wide range of genres and I know there is something for every one this list! I am proud to present my picks for your viewing pleasure.

The Booklist – 5 Books You Should Read

Book Review “Into The Dark”John Royce

Into the Dark is the last book in the Legend of the Great Horse trilogy. As our journey with Meagan comes to a very unanticipated end, the story continues to capture the imagination and emotions as well, if not better than the first two books. The story is swarming with revelations, history, action and (finally) a bit of romance. We even get a glimpse into a very unappealing and suppressed possible future.

Book Review “Eclipsed by Shadow” John Royce

ECLIPSED BY SHADOW is the 1st book of The Legend of the Great Horse trilogy. The story is a well-researched, award-winning YA historical fiction/fantasy that brings readers on a journey of real history. The central character is a young horse-enthusiast, Meagan, who struggles to survive mankind's past using her empathy, perseverance--and her modern knowledge of horsemanship.
