Haunted by the sacrifices he made in Constantinople, Radu is called back to the new capital. Mehmed is building an empire, becoming the sultan his people need. But Mehmed has a secret: as emperor, he is more powerful than ever . . . and desperately lonely. Does this mean Radu can finally have more with Mehmed . . . and would he even want it? 

Lada’s rule of absolute justice has created a Wallachia free of crime. But Lada won’t rest until everyone knows that her country’s borders are inviolable. Determined to send a message of defiance, she has the bodies of Mehmed’s peace envoy delivered to him, leaving Radu and Mehmed with no choice. If Lada is allowed to continue, only death will prosper. They must go to war against the girl prince. 

But Mehmed knows that he loves her. He understands her. She must lose to him so he can keep her safe. Radu alone fears that they are underestimating his sister’s indomitable will. Only by destroying everything that came before–including her relationships–can Lada truly build the country she wants. 

Claim the throne. Demand the crown. Rule the world.

 

My Review 

 

I really loved how the series ended. I thought the author did a great job on tying everything up. 

My favorite character has to be Radu, I think he grew the most throughout this series. I also loved that he wasn’t so blindsided on Mehmed, like he use to be. I also really loved the brother, sister relationship that he had with Lada.

I really had a love hate relationship with Lada throughout the story,  but in the end, I really started to understand and like her much more.

Mehmed, I started out thinking was ok, but I started to like him lesser and lesser, as the series went on. 

So this was my absolute favorite out of the 3, with the 2 book, being my 2nd favorite. The first was definitely my less favorite, but I still love some parts more than others, in regards to the first book. 

I am so glad that I asked and I was chosen to take part in this tour. Great series and will miss this world and most of the characters.

My first time reading Adam Silvera but definitely not my last!!!!!


Review:

History Is All You Left Me - Adam Silvera

Wow I don’t know what to say exactly about this book. I really loved it. I love how humans Griffin is,  what I mean by this is that his not prefect and he knows that. And he doesn’t blame other people for his faults. 

I felt so bad for him with the loss of Theo. I was kind of surprised about things you find out about towards the end of the book. But I was happy that I was wrong about how it would end. 

I don’t have my book around me right now so I can’t look for the name. But my favorite side character was Griffin and Theo’s friend, I really liked him a lot. 

I loved how other books and movies were mentioned in the book, such as Harry Potter and Stars. 

Definitely had tears in my eyes a lot throughout the story. I really want to read They both die at the end, but I am afraid that I would definitely cry if I do.

DNF after reading up to page 158.


Bring Me Their Hearts - Sara Wolf

So unfortunately I dnf the book. I just found myself not invested enough to read the book. The only character I really liked was the prince Lucien. But unfortunately the Prince wasn’t enough to keep me going. I have so many more books to get to. 

Its not an awful book but I just wasn’t feeling it. Maybe I will go back and try to read it later down the road. But it won’t be for awhile.

Pretty good start to the trilogy!!!!


Review:

Enclave - Ann Aguirre

So I had my son pick 5 books off either my book shelf or the kids and this book was one of his books.

I thought it was good for the start of a series. Did it blow me away, no it didn’t,  did it Suck? No it did not, but it was a interesting book and makes me want to read the next book in the series. 

In the book the main girl character was Duece and the main guy character is named Fade. Out of the 2 Fade, which is a guy in case you didn’t know. I thought he was the most interesting character to read about. I like the girl character Duece on, but she didn’t blow me away. I didn’t like her very much at all until the second part of the book. I didn’t like how the young ones were called brats. The freaks, who the characters of Duece and Fade have to hunt and kill before they get killed by them. 

It was interesting watching them having to hunt down these freaks. I can’t remember tho if it was mentioned what exactly the freaks are and how they came about.. 

So anyways at first there below the ground but something happens and they both get banished, and then they go above ground. The first part of the book is setting up what is happening below ground and why those 2 characters are banished. And the second half is what’s happening above the surface and the adventures they encounter along the way. Its not a spoiler because it’s mentioned in the flap of the cover. The above ground parts are my favorite parts of the book.

It is a trilogy and I am going to read the next book in the series as well but not until probably July or August. 

Next book I am going to start reading tomorrow is A Reaper at the gates, since Amazon screwed up and sent it out early.

Really fun book!!!!


Review:

Ace of Shades - Amanda Foody

I really thought this was a really good book, but its definitely not as good as the six of crows. I did really enjoy both of the main characters of Enne and Levi. The reason I said that it wasn’t as good as Six of Crows is because it has been compared or at least mentioned that it has a six of crows vibe to it

 I just think why I don’t think it’s as good, is because Levi isn’t as tough or as cunning as Kaz. 

I did love the cast of characters and thought that Enne really started to get stronger as the book went on. Levi I really liked but I think our of the two Enne grow a lot more as the story progressed. I did like that while you know those two likes one another it wasn’t even close to being the main part of the plot.

I really wish it would have had a  better ending than it did  at least that’s how I feel. I also figured out a few things before it was even revealed. Those two reasons are why I didn’t give the book 5/5 stars l. But it was a very fun book to be able to read. I also liked and this isn’t a spoiler because it’s mentioned in the blurb. But I loved that Enne was the one that had to save Levi. 

I am so happy that owlcrate put this book in there April crate

So freaking awesome and amazing and all types of feelings!!!!


Review:

A Torch Against the Night - Sabaa Tahir

Wow what a one hell of an amazing and fantastic ride. I just can’t believe how much I love this series so far. I am so in love with Elias, and watching him suffer all the time really hurts my heart a whole lot. Boy can’t this guy freaking have a little bit of happiness in his life. I am sure A Reaper at the gate is going to freaking hurt or maybe even break my heart. Why what goes down with Elias in this book is a freaking mess. Darn it I want him to have some freaking happiness in his life. 

Laia I love so much as well and I think she has grown up a lot in this book and I hope that continues .I didn’t care for something that she did in this book but it had to happen in order for what she finds out about to make so type of impact. And it’s interesting in regards to something that she is able to do in this book. 

Helene I just don’t freaking care about her at all and I don’t know if I ever will like it. I don’t like what she’s becoming at all. I hate to admit this but I found myself staring to skip the pages that has her point of view in it. I really don’t care about her family and what she is going through at all. I know that sounds harsh but I can’t help how I feel about her. I really want to like her but every time she is the main point of view I like her even less than before. 

Marcus I can’t stand either but I understand him because he’s just plain not a nice individual. Helena i just don’t understand how can do the things she’s doing. Before that certain thing happened towards the end of the book I could kind of understood but after that could place I just can’t understand it. I really hope she is able to change my mind about her. 

A lot of killings again in this book and a lot of things took place that were really important and interesting developments .I can’t wait until next month for the 3rd book to be released

Review:

An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

Just have to say I just loved the book a whole lot. I have a favorite new character in Elais. I love how real he is and how much he wants to do the right thing even if he gets killed because of it. I like Laia and at the beginning I didn’t think I would like her at all. I am so happy that it didn’t turn out that way. I am still not sure on how I feel about Helena. I don’t hate her but so far I really don’t have any feelings about her. I know I can’t stand Marcus or Keegan at all. 

I loved the book so much that I started reading A Torch against the night now. When I had two other books that I had planned ahead of this one. Definitely one of my favorite reads this year
