Awesome book so far, but very violent


An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

I am really enjoying this book, but wow is it a pretty violent and very brutal storyline. I really love  Elias so much and I feel so sad for him because of what a awful and violent mother he has. I also really love Laia and feel sorry for her because of everything that has happened to her in her young life. Can’t wait to see how this book ends. I have book 2 and plan to read it sometime this month

 But after this one, I have at least 1 or maybe even 2 books that is ahead of the next book. And I already preordered the 3rd book as well!!!!

Really interesting take of the little mermaid.


Review:

To Kill a Kingdom - Alexandra Christo

I really think this was a very interesting and dark take on the little mermaid. I really enjoyed the two main characters a lot. Of course I always seem to enjoy the guys more. But this time I loved both Princess Lira and Prince Elian, almost the same. But I am actually going to super my followers and myself by given Princess Lira the edge. I am really happy that she stuck to her guns and didn’t let people boss her around. 

I really loved the whole book from start to finish, it kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I loved that it took place all over and not just on land. I really loved how Prince Elian’s group of pirates, etc, were so loyal to him. And I just loved the whole adventure.

This Book Helped me get out of a reader slump.


Review:

This Heart of Mine - C.C. Hunter

I really loved this book a whole lot. I was in a major reading slump, but this took me right out of it. I loved both Leah and Matt so much. 

Leah was so brave with all that she was going through, and I really loved her relationship with her mom and dad. As well as her friendship with her best friend, I think her name was Brandy but not one hundred percent sure.

Now Matt I felt so bad for him, I couldn’t imagine what he was going through, everyone thinking Eric killed himself and Matt just not believing that his twin would do that.

I have to say I also thought him and Leah were so cute in the scene before everything started to take place. I really wish we could have known Eric more before his death, that’s one of my complaints. The little we knew about him before his death, he seemed liked he was really popular, well loved, but he also had problems. Somethings pointed to Eric killing himself but other things didn’t. That’s all I am going to say about that.

One of my favorite parts has to do with Matt and a certain book he was reading, and I am not going to spoil that, and tell you anymore. I knew pretty quickly how things would end in regards to Eric. But that didn’t stop my enjoyment of the book at all. 

I really thought both Matt and his situation with his brother’s death and Leah with her heart and finding out whose heart she received was handled very well.

I loved the ending it really had me in tears, but also loving Leah even more than before. 

I am so glad I bought and read this book. I give it 4 1/2 stars but had to round it up to a 5 star book or rating which ever way you would prefer.

Solis - Kat Ross

Solis
Kat Ross
(Fourth Talisman #2)
Published by: Acorn Publishing
Publication date: February 19th 2018
Genres: Adult, Fantasy

In the second volume of the Fourth Talisman series, Nazafareen’s path takes a twist, setting her on a journey into the heart of the maelstrom…

It’s been a thousand years since the Avas Vatras tried to burn the world to ashes. A thousand years since they were imprisoned in the brutal wasteland called the Kiln. But revenge is a dish best served cold—even, apparently, by the children of fire.

In Delphi, Nazafareen joins forces with the followers of Dionysius to rescue her friends from the Oracle’s dungeons and seek out the three talismans whose extraordinary powers stopped the Vatras before. With her own breaking magic growing stronger by the day, she must walk a razor’s edge to control her volatile temper. And if the Vatras find the talismans first, their last hope will die.

In the frozen wastes of the Valkirin range, Victor strikes an uneasy bargain with bitter enemies to keep his tenuous grip on the Maiden Keep. The other holdfasts are coming for him. But it’s an enemy within Val Moraine’s walls that may prove to be his downfall.

 

Excerpt

 

Nazafareen reached the top of the stairs and tried to see what was going on. The other Maenads quickly fanned out on either side, working their way around the edges of the throng, except for Rhea who was trying to plow her way through. Nazafareen rose onto her tiptoes but she was too short to get a good look.
“Out of the way,” Rhea growled at the middle-aged man ahead of her.
He gave her an incredulous stare.
“And go where?” he demanded.
The crowd was packed cheek to jowl, a dense mass of humanity that might as well have been a brick wall for all the progress they were making.
“Just move!” Rhea snapped. She turned sideways, using her shoulder like a wedge, and began forcing her way through tiny gaps, but they only made it a few paces before she stopped again and cursed under her breath.
“The temple soldiers are holding a tight line in the front,” she whispered. “We’ll never make it. We’d better backtrack.”
Nazafareen wanted to scream in frustration. The ranks had already closed tight behind them. Then the crowd gave a tremendous cheer, tinged with excitement.
“What is it?” Nazafareen asked, her mouth dry with fear. “Can you see them?”
She could smell the sea of unwashed bodies and heavy perfumes, and a hint of something else. Smoke.
Rhea used her staff to poke a woman hard in the back. When she turned with an outraged scowl, Rhea took the chance to peer over the crowd. Her face turned grey.
“They’ve put someone inside the bull,” she hissed. “Oh no…”

I Love Rhysand what a Freaking badass!!!!!!


Review:

[By Sarah J. Maas] A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses) (Paperback)【2017】by Sarah J. Maas (Author) [1865] - Sarah J. Maas

Really Loved this one so much, started it Sunday morning and finished it by Sunday night.

In the other review that I just did, I didn’t mention how much I freaking loved Cassian, Nesta, AZ, Elain, and jusr all of Rhys’s court. I also started to like Lucien a lot more, since he wasn’t around Tamlin in this one. I am confused on whom I want Elain with, I am leaning more towards AZ, I just love Az and I don’t think he gets the love that I feel he deserves. At first I thought that Az and Morrigan had a thing going, but since they don’t, I just feel that Az will be more gentle with Elain, and I loved how he treats her in scenes they were together in. But to be fair Lucien didn’t have much scene time with her. So maybe as the new series comes out and they get more time together, that could change and I will want Lucien with her, who knows.

Another character that was very intriguing and I wasn’t sure about at first was Amren. I love what she was and what happened to her in the end. A very interesting turn of events. I really love the different courts we got to visit and how each court’s differs from the other ones.

Tamlin I am still not really sure about, I don’t know if I still can’t stand him, but I know. I don’t forgive him for all the crap that he put Feyre thought. But I hope we get to see more of him, and I wonder if there will be a story for him. I just don’t know if I will ever read that story, but who knows.

Now my gosh do I love Rhys and Feyre so freaking much, they definitely belong with one another. I just think they flit perfectly together. I love that even when they were apart they weren’t really. I can’t believe how powerful Rhys was, but I guess I should have had some idea, but wow what he did to Tamlin after Tamlin did what he did, I was speechless, and then I was saying you go Rhys. And Feyre she just was a Freaking badass in this book. I love when something happened to one of her love ones, and what she did was just awesome. Of course she still did make a lot of stupid mistakes, but a lot of characters in order books as well as this book, have done stupid things as well.

The ending and what I first thought happened, made me so freaking sad, until I found out that it really didn’t happen. 

Things I didn’t like about the book were really not big things that would make me lower my rating, like for example it was slow at times, and I wish the battle lasted longer. And that there were more excitement at times. I also need to mention the girls father, I was glad that  he was at least in the book for a tiny bit, and that he played apart in the battle.

I can’t wait for the next book, which I have already preordered. I really want to know what happened after the ending of this book, and who is going to be the main characters in the next series.

WoW what a book.


Review:

A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

This weekend I finished both this book and the last one in the series, and what a hell of a ride it was. Will start with the review of this one, and then I will make another post on the last back.

In the first book I wasn’t sure why readers didn’t like Tamlim, because at first I thought they were so cute together. But after I finished reading it at looked back on their relationship, there were signs that things were going to happen to their relationship and that Tamlin was going to be the person to cause the conflict. 

Now Rhys I knew from his and Feyre’s first meet that something was going to take place between those two at a certain point. I always liked Rhys from the beginning, sure his was a really ass around her most of the time but those two when they were around one another still has amazing chemistry between them.

Now let’s talk about this book, can I say I really hated Tamlin in this book, what he did to Feyre was just so freaking wrong and I am sorry but what he did to her just made me wish I could go into the book and knock some sense into him. I just don’t understand why he thought what he did wasn’t a bad thing to do to her or anyone for the matter. And when she was freed from that awful situation, I just wanted to give Rhys a really big hug, I would say kids but Feyre would kick my ass. 

You could see the big difference between Tamlin’s court and Rhys’s court in the way they treat there people. I have to also mention that I love how Rhys got Feyre to start to read, oh boy those two just cracked me up. 

I loved that Rhys wasn’t trying to hold Feyre back, and how he didn’t treat her like glass, and that she would break.. Tamlin I know he had an awful life but so did Rhys.

Feyre in the first book I wasn’t sure about, I didn’t know if I liked her or not. But boy did she kick some ass in this book. When she found out the secret Rhys was keeping from her I understand kind of why she was upset. But come on, would she have been able too handle that information at the time? No of course not, she was in love or though she was in love with Tamlin. I love that scene where they see one another after she left, and the whole scene between Feyre and Rhys.

The ending wow was that cray, cray, and what we thought happened and what was revealed by that certain individual was just freaking awesome!!!!! And what happened to Feyre’s sisters was also crazy. Just loved this book so much.
