Review: Frost Blood by Elly Blake 4/5

download (3)

Buy on amazon here:

Ruby is a Fireblood. In a land ruled by frost, her very existence is a crime. She’s spent her whole life in hiding.

Until the day Frostblood soldiers raid her village and kill her mother. The day she swears to avenge her people.

She must travel deep into the heart of the enemy, to the court of the Frost King, with only the mysterious warrior Arcus – a Frostblood rebel – by her side. But with alliances between flame and ice strictly forbidden, is Arcus friend or foe?

The story is solid and the characters are well rounded. I enjoyed this novel, and definitely think this has the foundations to make a brilliant series. The world was carefully build and the mythology that was hinted at. I am looking forward to the sequel, Fire Blood, to look at this world in more depth.

If you love ‘Snow like Ashes’ by Sara Raasch, you will love this book!

Review: Fair Assassin by C.J Anaya (Free eBook)

Get free on amazon here:

Fair Assassin is a book for those lovers of the fae. It has promise, but as it’s only a hundred and fifty pages (and free, so bonus!) it feels too short.

The main character deals with male attention, that borders on obsession and finds it highly inconvenient. Crysta suddenly wakes up a fae assassin, who has been sent to kill her.

The mythology and the faery courts have promise and this novel sows the seeds for a rich urban fantasy series.

Can’t wait for the next one.

Review: Neighbours by Stylo Fantôme (Twin Estates Series) KINDLE UNLIMITED

32199811

Buy Neighbours on amazon here:

I borrowed this book on kindle unlimited and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The cover isn’t very inspirational but the description of the book is what drew me in to an unfamiliar author.

Katya Tocci has never paid much attention to who lives next door – her career always kept her too busy. She’s a good girl, working her way to becoming the most sought after cake designer in all of San Francisco.

But even a good girl’s gotta cut loose once in a while, right? So one fake dating profile later, and she’s ready to tarnish her squeaky clean image. Little does she know, her fun time is closer to home than she ever imagined.

Throw in a neighbor who wants to corrupt her, and another who just wants to own her, and her entire world is flipped upside down.

The story starts in an unconventional way but the character dynamic between Katya, Liam and Wulfric definitely makes the simple premise into something much more twisted and brilliant.

Honestly, although this book was listened under a more contemporary romance sub-genre, I couldn’t read it as much. It wasn’t a traditional romance by any means but definitely worth a read.

It’s a good thing there are two books in this series, because the first one ends with a cliffhanger and a twist that will leave you wanting more. It will leave you devastated and (hopefully without giving too much away) it will leave you wanting revenge!

I enjoyed the complexities of the characters and they definitely made a simple story into something brilliant.

Review: Crown of Lies / Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters (Truth and Lies Duet Series)

 

 

Purchase on amazon here:

The truth and lies duet series is tame, compared to some of Pepper Winter’s other series’. Particularly the new Dollars series sticks in my mind as one of my new favourites. That being said: Winters’s writing has an addictive quality that can make the darkest depravity into a relatable and curious read.

The Truth and Lies duet is about a young heiress, who decides to escape her life for a night only to be almost assaulted and then rescued. Her rescuer, Nameless, is then arrested. The story begins from there.

I loved the first book in the series vehemently.

Particularly the lead heroine, Elle Charleston, a strong independent woman with strong family ties.

I found it difficult to relate to Penn Everett (main male) in the first book, namely because he is a very brusque character and quite aggressive. However, the very thing that made him difficult to relate to is actually the backbone of the series. In the second book, when Penn’s character shows vulnerability due to plot points (no spoilers) I found that I missed his strong and violent personality. I missed his over-confidence.

The first book was a brilliant exercise in character development, although not as dark as I am used to with Pepper Winter’s work. The second book was more of a plot driven conclusion, although I would have liked more background on the lead villains’ as it felt like they were not properly explored enough to give their actions emotional weight in the series.

I give this series four out of five.

Review: Whispers and The Roars by K Webster

Whispers and the Roars by K Webster

 It’s a rare occurrence when I recommend a book to people with the notion that honestly, they would be better off not knowing anything about the plot as they dive into it.

 I  think that any spoilers would ruin this book beyond belief. The way that the first part and the character’s tie into the second part in such a twist, that you would never expect it, is simply brilliant. The amount of research K Webster has done on the subject matter is stunning and this book has amazing character establishment that I honestly can’t praise it enough.

 I will tell you the basic premise but to be honest, it makes this sound like its going to be a standard genre romance when honestly it isn’t.

Kady was abused as a child. Yeo, her childhood sweetheart, who she broke up with so she wouldn’t hold him back, is a newly qualified doctor and has come home to prove to his and Kady’s family that they really do belong together.

This novel is dark, romantic and desperate.

Fans of my book The Bleeders would honestly love it.
