Mist & Whispers – C M Lucas

Hi all!
Hope you’re all well and have been busy reading.

I was very lucky to get a review copy of Mist and whispers by C M Lucas.
Look how gorgeous the 2 covers are for it.


Imagine a world in eternal darkness. A world where skeletal beasts lurk in the forest. Where the women are missing, and the men are in need of salvation… 

In the West-English town of Little Wolf Green, Scott’s bookshop is about to close down. Convinced the bookshop holds the key to her mother’s identity, sixteen year old Anya Piddling vows to save Scott’s, whatever the cost.
When four books of magic and myth take the world by storm, Anya begins a journey to discover the truth about the author, known only as the Weaver. Followed closely by her friends, and one surly, bitter ex-boyfriend, Anya soon realises a whole new world awaits: a world gone very wrong, with maddening whispers in the forest, magical winged Kings and a dragon-boy that understands her, inside and out. But this world needs a saviour… and everyone is looking at her.

I went into this book only knowing that it was about a girl called Anya who believed the answer to who her mother was could be found in a book shop in wales.

I loved how the characters were built up and how the story flowed, there were a few times I got slightly confused and had to go back a page or two but that’s mainly because I forgot the names of certain support characters.
The world they arrive in with its creatures and people were well written and described so well I felt like I was actually there. In fact some of the creatures were described so well they starred in my dreams.

As a whole the book is enjoyable and well written but the story line is fairly complex so I recommend it is read in as few sittings as possible (I read it in 2).
I’d rate this book as 4/5 stars. Definetly one to pick up.

Well I’ll leave you all to your reading as I’ve got the ARC of the third viking assassin book waiting for me to delve in.

Happy reading,
let me know what you’re currently reading or if there’s a book you’ve read that you think I should read.

Dragons and sex

Hi all,
I bet that title piqued your interest!
So I’ve been AWOL lately as I’ve been busy proof reading the Dragon School series by Sarah K L Wilson (an amazing series you should all read! check out her group for more info  Blackwatch & Beyond   ) and I’ve also been reading a co-write by K L Humphrey and Rachel M Storm which is called One Night. And wow is it good! For more info pop over to their Facebook groups K L’s Brazen Bitches   and  Rachel M Storm’s Sexy Readers   here’s the blurb for One Night to get your taste buds tingling!

Brianne:

One night, that’s all it took for my life to change.
I didn’t expect to walk in on my boyfriend cheating on me.
I shouldn’t have slept with my brother’s best friend.
I shouldn’t have ran once it was over.
But I did, and now I’m back with a secret that will change all of our lives.
I want a happily ever after… But that may not happen.

Jaxon:

One night and she’s ruined me.
I slept with my best friends little sister, the one girl I’ve wanted for a long time.
It was the best night of my life.
She’s back with a bang and the whole town’s talking.
I need her in my life, but the people trying to sabotage us are making it hard for me to get her.
She’s all I want and I won’t stop until I get her.

Bet you all can’t wait to read more now! But heads up…. Jaxon is mine!

Right I’m off to carry on reading Save Me by Natasha Preston (It’s been on my TBR pile for ages!) So expect a review on that soon!

Happy reading!

The Tainted Accords – Kelly St Clare

Hi all,
Sorry for being AWOL for awhile, I’ve been busy looking after my mum after a spinal operation.

I’ve read a few books these last few weeks (87 so far this year!)

One series I read was The Tainted Accords by Kelly St Clare.
I read the first one via The Marked By Fate box set which is due out on Tuesday! (24th Oct 2017)
I was instantly hooked at the idea of two planets that are side by side, one incredibly hot and one freezing cold. Each can only exist with the presence of the other.

ks

The first book is Fantasy of Frost.
I must say I thoroughly enjoyed in and read all 4 within 3 days and then read the novella “Sin” after.

Full of secrets, action, destiny and betrayal and love.
I highly recommend you read this. The characters and storyline are amazing. get yours here:

www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01JSR277O/ref=series_rw_dp_sw

So go have a look, you won’t regret it.

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!

Sarah
