Review: Wolfbane by: F.D. Gross

 

32390281The Synopsis: 

Sixteen years have passed since the death of Lord Egleaseon, the vampire lord who sought to be human again, defeated by the famous noble lord, Wolfgang. One day after cleansing the surrounding countryside of vampires, Wolfgang returns from his latest expedition only to be faced with the horrible reality that everything he held dear to his heart has been taken from him. His wife is dead, his home is burned, and his son is nowhere to be found. Only the smallest inclination leads him to believe his orphaned servant is somehow responsible. He is desperate and provoked, and will do anything to get his son back, even if it means journeying the path of darkness. Thus begins the story of Wolfgang.

My Review:

I love vampire movies and books even if they are being slayed sometimes. This book had me from the start. It got right to the point and it’s pretty much non-stop action till the end. Seriously! I’ve never seen so much action in one book. You hear and see all the battles from the Main Characters, Wolfgang’s point of view and sometimes even feel his emotions.

 

You really feel for Wolfgang for his loss. I also really liked the other characters. Good and bad. At first you don’t know who to trust, but they still have some awesome personalities and some a little crazy. On Wolfgang’s journey there is plenty of vampires of course and monsters and supernatural beings!

I definitely got some Van Helsing vibes from Wolfgang. If your a fan of paranormal,vampires and epic fantasy I recommend this book to you! I can’t wait to see what Wolfgang does in his next journey!

Review: Wolves and Roses by Christina Bauer

 

The Synopsis:

Wolves & Roses
Christina Bauer
(Fairy Tales of the Magicorum #1)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: October 31st 2017
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

“If Janet Evanovich teamed with a young adult, fairy-tale author like Marissa Meyer (the Lunar Chronicles) or Alex Flinn (Beastly), the result might be something like Christina Bauer’s Wolves and Roses.” –Blue Ink Review

Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.

“Should” being the key word.

Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that?

All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that–if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye.

But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives… as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.

My Review:

This book is definitely a unique take on fairy-tale retellings. The characters in this book are called Magicorum and they are either shifters,witches, or fae. Then of course there is non-magical humans. Our main character seems to think she’s just a regular old human even though everyone is telling her she is a Sleeping Beauty template. All the magicorum have templates in this story and you’ll hear a few familiar fairy-tale names. It’s such a lovely modern twist on magic and fairy-tales. Christina Bauer did a fantastic job at blending it all together!

Her writing is smooth so you can easily speed through this story, but the story itself has some moments of downtime with the characters, but there is also lots of action full of shape shifting and magic!  Every time I thought I knew what was coming next, I was wrong and there is one twist I did not see coming at all! It was great and exciting and it was a lot of fun to read. I can’t wait for the next book because really Bryar Rose’s story has just begun and even for some of the other characters. I can’t wait to see what happens!

There is basically four main characters Bryar and her best friend Elle,Knox and Alec. There’s definitely a little love story going on, but it doesn’t overwhelm the story line. My favorite character was actually Alec! I couldn’t get enough of him! I also really liked Brayer’s sarcastic spunky personality. All the characters had their moments of being great!

If you’re a fan of fairy-tales,magic,werewolves,fae and a little Egyptian history then this book is definitely for you.

Review: No Vain Loss(No Ordinary Star #3) by M.C. Frank

29215280The Synopsis:

She A soldier is summoned to the North Pole, days before the year changes, told to fix the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do. A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an ice shack. The world hasn’t known hunger or sickness in hundreds of years. It has also forgotten love and beauty.
This is the One World.
The year is 2524.
Inspired by the short stories of Ray Bradbury, this futuristic young adult novel in three parts is set in a world where Christmas -among other things- is obsolete and a Clock is what keeps the fragile balance of peace.Written in three parts, this is the breathtaking story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other, one book at a time.In No Vain Loss, the world is on the brink of the greatest war humanity has ever known. Lives will be lost. New truths will be revealed.

Review: No Ordinary Star (Book 1) By: M.C Frank
Review: No Plain Rebel (Book 2 of No Ordinary Star) by M.C Frank

My Review:

“It’s ten heartbeats to midnight.”

Picking up right where No Plain Rebel left off, M.C Frank has wowed me again. I have loved the series from the beginning and I am sad to see it end. I finished this read in one sitting. It is definitely fast paced, so fast paced you must pay attention because so many things are happening at once! Bullets flying,Kissing,Electrocutions,Stare Downs and more.

“There are worse ways to die than beneath a velvet sky, snowflakes melting on your lips.”

This final installment was mainly focused on the war zone/battlefield between Felix and Kun. You’re really inside Felix’s head when this whole chaos is going down. You feel every emotion he does. There was also parts I just wanted to slap Felix because he was drooling over Astra instead of listening to her. But that’s okay.

“One small weakness is enough to conquer you.”

I feel like the ending was left opened to continue this story or at least this world. So maybe I’ll get lucky and that will happen, because I really would like to know more of this new character that was introduced.

Review: The Girl Who Saved Ghosts(The Unbelievables #2) by K.C. Tansley

910YG99tnBL.__BG0,0,0,0_FMpng_AC_UL320_SR200,320_The Synopsis:

She tried to ignore them. Now she might risk everything to save them. After a summer spent in a haunted castle—a summer in which she traveled through time to solve a murder mystery—Kat is looking forward to a totally normal senior year at McTernan Academy. Then the ghost of a little girl appears and begs Kat for help, and more unquiet apparitions follow. All of them are terrified by the Dark One, and it soon becomes clear that that this evil force wants Kat dead. Searching for help, Kat leaves school for the ancestral home she’s only just discovered. Her friend Evan, whose family is joined to her own by an arcane history, accompanies her. With the assistance of her eccentric great aunts and a loyal family ghost, Kat soon learns that she and Evan can only fix the present by traveling into the past. As Kat and Evan make their way through nineteenth-century Vienna, the Dark One stalks them, and Kat must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save a ghost.

My Review:

If you haven’t already be sure to check out my review for the first book The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by: K.C. Tansley

Today is The Girl Who Saved Ghosts book birthday! So head on over to Amazon and get yours now!

This was a great continuance from the first book! Once again I couldn’t put this book down and read it in one sitting! K.C. Tansley did another great job with another mystery and even more curses! I found myself trying to solve it right along with Kat.

There are a few new characters. One was super creepy and gave me chills. Then there’s characters you will just love! I love Kat’s aunts! One is super sweet and the other is kinda sassy. There’s some time travel again and that is where we get some new ghosts and get to see things from their POV!

I think this could be read as a stand alone because the first book is a covered a little bit in the beginning. But I recommend reading the first book because this is becoming one great series!

I can’t wait for the next book to see what happens with Kat,The Dark One and maybe even Kat’s Father!

About The Author:

K.C Tansley lives with her warrior lapdog, Emerson, and two quirky golden retrievers on a hill somewhere in Connecticut. She tends to believe in the unbelievables—spells, ghosts, time travel—and writes about them.
Never one to say no to a road trip, she’s climbed the Great Wall twice, hopped on the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, and danced the night away in the dunes of Cape Hatteras. She loves the ocean and hates the sun, which makes for interesting beach days. The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts is the first book in her YA time-travel murder mystery series.
As Kourtney Heintz, she also writes award winning cross-genre fiction for adults.

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by: K.C. Tansley

24991337The Synopsis:

Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut. The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton. But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.

My Review:

“Ghosts don’t exist. They can’t touch me. They can’t hurt me. They aren’t real.”
“But deep down I knew I was lying. And the ghosts knew it too.”

This book was way more than I expected. I finished this book in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. It was so enjoyable and steady paced I just couldn’t stop reading. There never really was a dull moment especially once they get to the castle that’s when everything starts to kick off and unfold and it will have you trying to solve this mystery murder right along side the characters.

It kind of reminded me of a less gruesome Stalking Jack The Ripper plus a little time travel and of course ghost! It wasn’t too scary, so for those that don’t like horror. I think they would still really enjoy this. It’s more of a Mystery. Still a little spooky though, a perfect read for this time of the year.

I love Kat’s story and all the characters stories and how it all comes together. I even loved the ghosts. The castle sounded amazing and I loved the atmosphere that was created. It had a great ending and I can’t wait to start the second book,The Girl Who Saved Ghosts. I will be posting a review of it tomorrow Oct 17th which is its release day! Buy it here on Amazon! Of course you also purchase The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts on Amazon as well!

Review: Royal Captives (Royal Replicas #2) by Micheal Pierce

36029959The Synopsis:

Victoria’s journey continues in the heart-pounding second book of the Royal Replicas series. Victoria Sandalwood has escaped the palace, but not with any of the people she intended on saving. Now it’s up to her to retrieve the coveted information the Queen so desperately desires. Victoria’s life is safer if she never returns. However, her remaining sisters are counting on her to come back for them. After watching Victoria leave, Prince Byron feels terrible about his inaction at the Choosing Ceremony and vows to win back her favor. Victoria doesn’t know if she can trust him anymore and she’s ready to move past that small, but sweet part of her life and remain steadfast on her new mission. To free her sisters from the Queen’s grasp, Victoria will need to enlist the aid of unlikely allies, some of whom may have far from altruistic intentions. And once again, Princess Amelia may be the key. Victoria is determined to return for her sisters. She’s determined to free Princess Amelia, who remains locked away within the lower maze of the palace. But the costs of such actions may be much higher than Victoria expects… and may end up costing her everything.

Today, October 13th Royal Captives is released! Get it now on Amazon!

My Review:

First off let me say I loved the prologue and epilogue! It gave the story a touch it needed. I was thinking about the prologue the whole book! They are in the point of view of Queen Dorothea and gives you a better understanding on what is really going on with her. The rest of the story is in Victoria and Byron’s point of view which I also liked. I am totally Team Byron so I loved his POV and gave me high hopes for Victoria and Byron’s reunion!

A little under 250 pages, but packed with so much. I was surprised more than once, by twists I didn’t see coming! There’s also some action and plenty suspense. Just when I thought the story couldn’t get any better, the ending left me with a face kinda looking like this O.O and needing to know what happens next. I cannot wait for the third book! It should be here early 2018 and I am so excited!

Review/Giveaway: Gate of Air by Resa Nelson

35105293

The Synopsis: 

Gate of Air by Resa Nelson 
(Dragon Gods, #1) 
Publication date: June 19th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Frayka must find and convince the dragon gods of the Far East to appease the gods of her Northland heritage. If she fails, her own Northlander gods will destroy all the mortals who once promised to worship them. The Far East is a mysterious place of legend to Northlanders like Frayka. Only an old map can show her how to get there. Once she arrives, all of Frayka’s sensibilities put her in danger. And every dangerous turn delays her from finding the dragon gods whose help she so desperately needs. Although Frayka looks like a Far Easterner, she is a powerful Northlander warrior who is quick to voice her thoughts. She is trained to fight and won’t hesitate to do so. But everything about Frayka puts her in deadly peril in the Far East, where the laws are strict and the punishment cruel. Especially when the one being punished is a woman.

 

My Review:

First of all look at that cover!
Second this book is about, Mythology and Dragons!
I couldn’t have been more excited to receive this book!  This is my first time reading Resa Nelson’s work, so I had no idea this wasn’t the first book until after I finished reading. So I suppose reading the previous books aren’t necessary. I still quite enjoyed the story!

There was a wonderful mix of actual history, magic, mythology! It focused on things that actually happened in history. The limitations that Frayka faces actual happen in the history in Asia. I found it quit interesting.

I definitely did not see that ending coming and look forward to a sequel! This book definitely gave me Avatar: The Last Airbender vibes. So if your a fan of Avatar I think you’ll like this story. Also if your a fan of fast paced, magical, YA fantasy stories I recommend this to you!

Purchase:
99¢ for a limited time only!

Review/Giveaway: The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle

33973968

The Synopsis:

Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out.
Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister, Livy, is at wit’s end trying to understand what’s wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn’t talk of such things: he’s the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract. Unaware of what’s happened to Skye, Kit starts dating Livy, trying to keep it casual to protect her from the attention of the goblins. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Kit, Skye draws his cousin Grady into the spell through an enchanted kiss in the woods, dooming Grady and Skye both to become goblins and disappear from humankind forever. It’s a midwinter night’s enchantment as Livy, the only one untainted by a spell, sets out to save them on a dangerous magical path of her own.

My Review:

This book was definitely way different from what I expected. I thought it was going to be a cute little fantasy story about Goblins. Well I was mostly wrong…It is more of a New Adult Fantasy with Goblins that actually creeped me out so much they were in my dreams the first night after reading this story. These Goblins will give you the chills. They are ruthless.

It was so disturbing what the Goblins were doing to people. This book is definitely not for people that don’t like creepy and chilling reads or a lot of romance. If you do love all those things this is perfect for you. It’s October so this would be a great read to get you into the spooky feels.

Even though the Goblins were super creepy. They were extremely sarcastic and witty, so at times they made me smile, maybe even laugh. There is even one nice goblin!

The writing was great and the town of Bellwater went well with these creepy Goblins and the elemental magic featured in this story. I also really loved the cover, after reading the story, it reminded me of the Goblins.

I think the ending was great and I loved where the author took this story and where it went. It was intriguing, fast paced, and both realistic and fantastical.

About The Author:

30070430

The Synopsis:

Aurora Firedrake returns in the spellbinding sequel to The Last of the Firedrakes.
The seven kingdoms of Avalonia are crumbling and evil is spreading across the land like a plague. Queen Morgana is close to finding a way to open The Book of Abraxas and it’s only a matter of time until she uses the power trapped inside its pages to enslave the entire world. With Avalonia growing more dangerous by the day, Aurora must travel through war-torn lands and deep into the heart of the fae kingdom of Elfi. Her goal is to find a legendary weapon infused with the last of the realm’s ancient magic—the only weapon in the world powerful enough to stop the queen.Aurora might have survived her first battle against Morgana, but the true fight to save her kingdom and restore her throne has only just begun…

 

My Review:

If you haven’t already be sure to read my review of the first book Review: The Last of the Firedrakes (Avalonia Chronicles#1) by: Farah Oomerbhoy
And definitely read it if you haven’t already also!

I loved the first book, but oh my! this book was even more amazing and now I definitely need this whole series forever. I just got to gush about this ending real quick though! Oh my! The feels, I have all the feels, so many!!! Heartbreak,Shock, Happiness! I don’t know what to feel! All I know is that I need the third book now!!! Oh the betrayal! I got to stop now and actually review this whole book and not just the ending. But Farah Oomerbhoy has written the best final paragraph of a book I ever read! I felt it! I saw it! *tear*

Aurora has grown so much from the last book even though it’s only a few months between. I’m so proud of her. She’s really learning to control her magic and is becoming extremely powerful.
But while she is worried about freeing her mother meanwhile Rafe’s kingdom is getting taken over by evil no one saw coming, so he must go back and Aurora is left with people she doesn’t know if she can trust or not.

“I started sleeping with a dagger under my pillow, and was ready to use it if I needed to.”

In this first book you probably fell in love with Rafe,(I know I did)well Farah Oomerbhoy definitely wants to confuse your little heart in this one. She throws in a new tall,dark and handsome guy. He’s not just any guy though he’s a Fae Knight and that’s not all a Prince. Who am I suppose to love now! Who is Aurora suppose to love!

There is so many twists and betrayals you’ll never see coming it’s amazing. Farah Oomerbhoy does such a wonderful job of building and expanding on this world she created. She has some of the best descriptive writing I have ever read. I love it! There is also a lot more battles in this book and it is all so very exciting!

Aurora really becomes a badass!

“Aurora Firedrake had awoken.”
