So this review is about a book that’s pretty special to me.
It came out on the 13th of July and is the first book I have officially proof read, it even has my name in it… twice!
Thunder rattles high is the 3rd and last book in the unweaving trilogy by Sarah K L Wilson. It’s where we follow Tylira right to the end of her journey and where we find out if she can save her world or if she can’t. It’s incredibly well written, has heart warming moments as well as tear jerking ones and also has ones that make you want to reach for your (metaphorical) sword and join in.
If you’ve read the first 2 in the series you really need to read this, in fact if you haven’t read the first 2 you need to go read them so that you can read this (definitely read the others first as this starts exactly where Lightening Strikes Twice left off and won’t make any sense if you try it as a stand alone).
A little Easter Egg from the Author…. If you look at all 3 covers we’ve slowly zooming in on Tylira’s face. Want to find out other awesome stuff about her books?

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:
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!
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.
