Steal the sun – Stephanie Kelley

Hi all,
So I got given the chance to read Steal the sun by Stephanie Kelley.
I’d never heard of her before so was eager to give her a go, and wow! I am so glad I did!
The cover isn’t one that would usually draw me in, but they do say don’t judge a book by it’s cover!

Kodiak Sesi is a hunter… not the type that hunts game… She and her brothers hunt “others” these are creatures such as vampires and werewolves but also include shifters such as selkies/mermen etc. (Have you seen Grimm? Think of wesen and how they can woge).
Intrigued? So was I!

Steal the sun follows Koda and her brothers as they hunt others and try to find out who’s been committing a series of murders around their Alaskan home.

I absolutely love this book and fell in love with it within the first sentence. Kodiak and Rhen are such powerful characters and the mystery of their back story kept me up and reading all throw the night!

I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance and fantasy as well as fans of Grimm and probably Supernatural (sorry never seen and episode!)

Definitely a 5 star read!
In the words of Oliver “Please sir can I have some more?”

Have you read Teeth of the Gods by Sarah K L Wilson, or Shift of Shadow and Soul by Hilary Thompson? well they are in the main box set and have short stories in the Origins box set, and I call tell you they are AMAZING!
There are so many brilliant books in these sets! Some I’ve read, some I haven’t but the ones I haven’t will be reviewed here for you all!

One of my favourites in the Origins box set is Prince of Hawks by Sarah K L Wilson.
I absolutely loved learning more about Rusk from the unweaving trilogy which is a amazing trilogy (yes I know that the 3rd book isn’t due to be released until the 13th of July but I just finished reading it and it blew my socks off! )

I’ll leave you all to rush off madly and pre-order all of those!
Ohh almost forgot there’s also a colouring book in the series and it’s awesome! here’s a pic from it, but be quick as when I checked Amazon UK earlier there were only 2 copies in stock!

Have a fab weekend!

The Crush Saga – Chrissy Peebles

Hi,

So a week or so ago I started this saga, in total there are 9 books, I’ve currently read up to book 3 (Chosen) and to be honest I’m not sure if I should continue.

I love the plot of the books – vampires, werewolves, witches, a curse! But and there is a big but… It is written quite childlike. All the kisses in it are “hot” and there’s just no variation on it. I do want to see where it goes and how the series will end but I’m not sure if I can read 6 more books of “hot” kisses.
In all honesty as much as I like the series I think it could be better written if done by a different author.

You can get book 1 – Crush on Amazon so if you fancy reading it give it a go!
Here are the links:

UK: www.amazon.co.uk/Crush-Saga-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00FBRKH8M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498520252&sr=8-1&keywords=chrissy+peebles

You may see another post from me about the remaining books, you may not. I’ve not made my mind up yet and my to be read pile is growing!

For this series so far I’d give the plot 5 stars but the writing 2-3 stars. But don’t write it off, you may love it!

Happy reading!

War and Wind – Alex Lidell

Hi!

So yesterday I delved back into the world of Nile Greysik as I joined her adventures in book 2 of the Tides series.
War and wind is just as well written as Ash and air, it’s just as gripping and has left me wanting more, (so it’s a good thing a 3rd book is in the works! Yay).
Every time I read Alex’s work I become absorb by her style of writing, I feel as though I am Nile out on the open sea, I feel what she feels to the point at times that my emotions betray me.
For anyone that has yet to read book one I urge you to, you will not regret it. And once you have let Nile’s world absorb you into it once more by reading War and Wind.

Queen of Destruction

Hi again!

Last night I finished Queen of Destruction by Gwynn White and Erin St Pierre.
Queen of Destruction is book 2 in the Queen of Extinction Trilogy.
I absolutely loved it!
In book 2 we follow our lovely Aurora and her entourage as they carry on their story of magic, love and fighting for what they believe in (I hate spoilers so if you’ve not read book 1, hopefully this doesn’t give anything away to you!)

A fab follow up to Queen of Extinction and I’m already itching to get my hands onto book 3. I need to know what happens!

The Liberty Box – C A Gray

Hi!

So the other week I got given a copy of The Liberty Box by C A Gray to review. So here’s that review!

la

The Liberty Box follows Kate Brandeis and Jackson Macnamera as they learn about the world they are currently living in, a world that is not all it seems.
The Potante saved The USA and turned it into the Republic of the America’s but at what price does his tyranny come at?

For me, the prologue where you learn about the Potante and the history of his tyranny actually bored me a lot, I just couldn’t get into it, but I carried on reading and I must say I’m glad I did.
After a few chapters I really got into the book and wanted to learn more about Kate and Jackson and see how they coped and dealt with what they had discovered about their world.
I will be reading the others in the series as I want to know what happened, so please don’t let the prologue stop you from reading this great book!

Queen of Extinction

Hi all!

So I was really lucky and was sent an ARC for Queen of Extinction by Gwynn White and Erin St Pierre, I finished this last night and WOW it was brilliant!

qe

Queen of Extinction is a dark retelling of Sleeping Beauty, forget everything Disney taught you about this fairy tale and fall in love with it through fresh eyes!
The story is told through the viewpoints of three people, Princess Aurora (our main character) , Raith and Jorah our secondary characters.
I fell in love with the story straight away, the characters endeared themselves to me (I want my own Jorah!) It’s full of magic, Betrayal and murder! A brilliant read, and must go onto your summer reading list!
I was delighted to discover that book two Queen of Destruction is already available and I’ve already started to munch my way though it! So expect a post on that soon!

I really recommend this to any fantasy/fairy tale lovers. You won’t be disappointed!

As usual feel free to contact me with any questions on the books I’ve read or suggestions for books you think I should read/review!

Have a fab day and happy reading!
Sarah
