“You summoned him,” She cried. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know what I had done. Or, how to fix it. Before I could react, she began to cry hysterically, “Why did you do it?”



I am so glad that the author sent me a copy of this book to read and review, because this was really good!

I liked Chloe/Willow, and I thought she acted appropriately when confronted with danger – she ran! This girl was no idiot, she knew that she was no match for a big guy with a sword or two and did the sensible thing and fled. No walking into danger on purpose for this girl!

“Fear trickling back into my numb body, I ran in the direction of home, hoping my mother was there so I could warn her.”



The storyline in this was really good, and I loved the action! Poor Chloe/Willow seemed to have no shortage of unexpected encounters, and I loved how I didn’t know what was coming next!

“It was him!
It was the intruder, disguised as a police officer! He had found me.”





There was some romance, and I’m guessing that some people might call it insta-love, but to be honest, although Nalin seemed to like Chloe, she didn’t immediately return the feeling, and there wasn’t any huge declarations on her part, and nothing physical at all.

“Seeing her again, even for a few fleeting moments, made my heart stop. I was overwhelmed with a feeling although I couldn’t comprehend which one. I had found my twin soul, and we were at the meeting once again.”



The ending to this was a bit of a cliff-hanger! I’m glad that the second part of this story is already available and free on smashwords! Yay!

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Everybody knows about the Cooper Killings – the Bel Air home invasion that rocked the nation. There was only one survivor - a sixteen year-old girl. And though the killers were caught they walked free. Now eighteen, Nic Preston - the girl who survived - is trying hard to rebuild her life. She’s security conscious to the point of paranoia and her only friend is a French Mastiff bulldog, but she’s making progress. She’s started college in New York and has even begun dating. But then one night her apartment is broken into and the life Nic’s worked so hard to create is shattered in an instant. Finn Carter - hacker, rule breaker, player – is the last person Nic ever wants to see again. He’s the reason her mother’s killers walked free from court. But as the people hunting her close in, Nic has to accept that her best and possibly only chance of staying alive is by keeping close to Finn and learning to trust the person she’s sworn to hate. Fleeing across a snowbound New England, frantically trying to uncover the motive behind the murders, Nic and Finn come to realize the conspiracy is bigger than they could ever have suspected. But the closer they get to the truth and the closer they get to each other, the greater the danger becomes. To survive she has to stay close to him. To keep her safe he has to keep his distance.

This was an okay story, but I just had trouble concentrating on it!

Nic was a bit of an irritating character at times. She seemed a little full of herself, didn’t help when she could have at times, and didn’t even apologise when her dog pooped on someone’s carpet!

The storyline in this wasn’t bad, but I just found it really hard to keep focus on. Even the action couldn’t keep me interested, and I just found myself zoning out all the time. I cared less and less about what was going on the further I got into the book, and even the romance didn’t appeal to me.

The ending was alright, and I hadn’t guessed who it was who was trying to kill Nic, that might just have been because I had such problems paying attention though.

Guardians
Blurb (from Goodreads):
This heart-pounding final book in the Wasteland trilogy is filled with dramatic twists and turns!

No one dares leave the District—the towering structure of glass and steel that is their protection against the unruly bands of Outsiders that roam Mundreel and the deadly rain that carries the disease that kills all over the age of nineteen.

This skyscraper stands amid the urban devastation, the city rumored to have once been called “Montreal.” Esther and her allies have created a haven on the rooftop, a garden that flourishes, and a home for her new baby, hidden from all but the very few who know her secret.

But as Gideon’s power grows and factions form, an unlikely leader learns to control every action of the District’s people. As the ultimate darkness is born from greed, Esther must find a way to save the citizens from themselves.

Guardians(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)

This was an alright story, but it wasn’t what I was expecting.

This series for me keeps going off in very different directions with each book, and this book was once again different to the 2 before it. While the first was a survival story, and the second about moving on, this one was more about human nature, and the way things developed with regards to money and how one person once again wanted to be in charge and have power over others.

The characters in this were okay, and I felt quite sorry for Esther at times. She came across as quite a nice person, who wanted to do what was in everybody’s best interests, but she was fighting an uphill battle really. Gideon turned into a not-nice person, and I wasn’t impressed with his methods.

The storyline in this was okay, but once again, it went in a very different direction to what I expected. I can’t really say that reading about people discussing pieces of green glass (their currency), people playing God, and killing people, to be all that exciting unfortunately, and after the half-way mark this story really dragged. There were also quite a few deaths in this book, some of them unexpected and fairly brutal! It seems like no-one is safe in this series!
The ending to this was good, and it was quite a positive ending. This book just wasn’t what I expected though.
Overall; okay story, but not quite what I was expecting,

Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis, thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.
Liars, Inc.
Blurb (from Goodreads):
It all starts with one little lie…

Max Cantrell has never been a big fan of the truth, so when the opportunity arises to sell lies to his classmates, it sounds like a good way to make a little money and liven up a boring senior year. With the help of his friends Preston and Parvati, Max starts a business providing forged permission slips and cover stories for the students of Vista Palisades High. Liars, Inc. they call it. Suddenly everybody needs something and the cash starts pouring in. Who knew lying could be so lucrative?

When Preston wants his own cover story to go visit a girl he met online, Max doesn’t think twice about hooking him up. Until Preston never comes home. Then the evidence starts to pile up—terrifying clues that lead the cops to Preston’s body. Terrifying clues that point to Max as the murderer.

Can Max find the real killer before he goes to prison for a crime he didn’t commit? Paula Stokes starts with one single white lie and weaves a twisted tale that will have readers guessing until the explosive final chapters.


Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars


Liars, Inc.(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis, thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)
17-year-old Max and his friends Preston and Parvati are known at the high school for being able to fake parental signatures on school documents for a price, so when Preston wants Max to cover for him while he goes to Vegas to meet a girl, Max agrees.

When Preston then disappears, and Max is implicated in his disappearance and possibly murder, Max and Parvati know that it’s up to them to solve the mystery of what happened to Preston, before it’s too late.
Where is Preston? Is he dead? And can Max and Parvati work out what is going on before Max is arrested?


This was an interesting mystery story, and I liked trying to work out what was going on!

Max was an interesting character, and it was obvious that his life hadn’t been easy. I felt really sorry for him when it looked like he was being framed for murder, although his actions didn’t help him look innocent!

The storyline in this was good, and I was impressed by the way Parvati knew so much about hiding out and avoiding cops! I liked the mystery aspect, even though I guessed what was going on at points, and I liked how things weren’t straight forward.
There was some romance, but it was a side-story rather than the main storyline, and was connected to the plot a bit rather than being tacked on for the sake of it.

The ending to this was pretty good, and I was happy with the way things worked out.
Overall; interesting mystery story,

Raine (Elemental #2) by M.M. Roethig

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author M.M. Roethig.

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Starting her senior year of high school, Raine Patterson is content with being invisible. That is, until the mysteriously handsome Kaden transfers in and turns her world upside down. Drawn to him in ways she can’t understand, Raine finds herself falling for him, regardless of his harsh stares and mixed signals. When she discovers a hidden ability to control the elements, she finds herself the target of a madman, and Kaden is the only one who can help her. Can she trust him? Kaden Williams has hated Elementals from the time he lost his father to them as a young boy. Chosen to protect Elementals, Kaden turned his back on his duty, swearing to rid the world of them instead. Meeting Raine was no accident, but his feelings for her throw him into turmoil and threaten to change the way he feels about Elementals. When Raine becomes the target of an unknown aggressor, Kaden is forced to decide which path he will follow. As the struggle for knowledge unfolds and the beginning of a pending war looms closer, Raine and Kaden must lean on each other to discover the truth and survive.

Raine by M.M. Roethig

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Raine (Elemental #2)(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author M.M. Roethig.)

“What is it that Elzar wants?” “He wants you.”



This was an okay story, but I lost interest after a while.

The characters in this were all okay, but I didn’t really love any of them. Kaden was quite stubborn, and set in his ways, and Raine was fairly normal and made some questionable decisions at times. How on earth she thought that salad was divine I don’t know. Pizza, ice-cream, chocolate – I’ll let you have that, but SALAD? SALAD?

“Their salad is divine if you like salads.”



The storyline in this was about Raine discovering her powers over the elements and learning about her heritage. I found that quite a bit of stuff was repeated from book 1, but because we were told it rather than being shown it, it all felt a bit heavy and dragged a bit.

“My dear, over the years Elementals have become a hunted species by those who don’t understand us. They have sought to kill us and, as Kayla says, they deserve nothing less.”



I was disappointed with this book partly because it was so different to book 1. Elemental princess was pure fantasy, with a bit of romance, whilst this story was more paranormal contemporary, and I just didn’t like it as much as Elemental Princess.

There was a little bit of romance, but it didn’t interest me, probably because I didn’t really care all that much for the characters.

“Kaden deepened the kiss as he slanted his mouth over hers, his hands firmly pressed against her back.”



I didn’t really feel like much was tied up at the end, but I was ready for the book to finish. Apologies to the author, but I feel this was maybe a case of wrong book wrong person.

All That We Have Lost by Kate Ashton

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Kate Ashton.

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Juliana flies to Paris in an effort to say a final goodbye to her husband who died on a top-secret mission—or that’s what she was told because a body was never found. When she bumps into a man who looks like her husband but has no memories, she starts on a journey to find the truth. A journey filled with emotional peril and danger, a journey only she can take. But she’s not alone. Daniel wanders, lost, unable to remember anything of his past, except for the horrific flashbacks. Lucy, estranged from her family, works as a fortuneteller, unable to receive a vision on what matters most to her. The one thing that could bring her family back together. Mia leaves her crumbling marriage to support her mother in Paris. She's forced to face the grief of losing her father, but she’s challenged to rise above to rescue a lost soldier, and possibly, be a hero. In this story about rescue, restoration, and second chances, all four will face their past—the heartache and the pain—in a moving rescue mission like no other.

All That We Have Lost by Kate Ashton

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


All That We Have Lost(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Kate Ashton.)

This was an okay story, there was nothing wrong with it; it just wasn’t my sort of story though. I have to say that I have read books by Kate Ashton before, and really, really loved them; I think this story literally just wasn’t my sort of thing.

There were several characters, and the writing jumped back and forth between their pasts and presents, and this told the story nicely, and showed where each character was coming from. More things were revealed as the story went along, and the relationships between characters became more obvious as the pieces fit together. Unfortunately though, I couldn’t really relate to the characters, I couldn’t get a good feel for any of them, and I didn’t really feel involved in their problems at all.

The subject matter of this book was about men who had gone missing whilst in combat, and the women back at home left missing them and wondering if they were dead or alive. Whether I didn’t connect with this because of my disinterest in war and such things I don’t know, but I just didn’t feel anything. I had hoped that I would get sucked into this story, that I would feel the women’s hurt and desperation, that I would feel a burning need to find out what had happened, and what was still happening the way they did, but I just didn’t feel anything.

The ending to this did have some surprises, but again, I just didn’t feel anything, and had really lost interest by the time I got to the end. To feel really bad saying that I didn’t enjoy this book, when I’ve enjoyed the author’s previous books, but unfortunately this one just wasn’t for me.

A Bell Sound Everlasting by J.Z.N. McCauley

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author J.Z.N. McCauley and RMS.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

She returns home, only to be plagued with odd flashes of light that leave her reeling. She attempts to go about her life, although she cannot help but wonder what else awaits her in what is becoming a bizarre chain of events. She has no idea that the man's mysterious appearances have only just begun. In this compelling tale, a woman seeking answers embarks on a journey of self-discovery through her memories, where she must learn to embrace loss, change, and her true destiny.

A Bell Sound Everlasting by J.Z.N. McCauley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A Bell Sound Everlasting(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author J.Z.N. McCauley and RMS.)

“Music is said to be one of the most beautiful things of the known world. It’s in music that I allow myself to let go, to let myself flow through it as if dancing.”



This was an unusual story about a woman who discovers she not only has a past life, but that her past life might mean something for her future life.

Evey was an interesting character, it was clear how much she loved her brother and his wife, and how much her parent’s deaths had affected her. I could also understand her worry and confusion when she began to think that she was hallucinating.

“And when I say flash, that’s just what it was, flashes of light glaring through my eyelids. I rabbed my head kneeling to the floor next to my bed.”



The storyline in this was quite unusual, and it wasn’t quite what I expected. It must have been very difficult for Evey to deal with when she suddenly started having hallucinations and passing out, but unlike the nurse she spoke to, I wouldn’t have immediately asked her if she was experiencing past life memories!

“Ahead appeared to be a figure of a tall man, and a large horse. They both seemed to blend into the scenery, dressed and coloured to be masked amongst natural backgrounds.”



There was romance in this, but it wasn’t real the typical sort of romance that I would expect, but more a bit of a mythical romance almost. (Sorry, bit difficult to describe it without giving too much away.)

“His gaze never left mine, he didn’t even seem to blink,”



The ending to this was a little bit of a happily ever after, but not exactly the sort of happily ever after that you would expect, it was a happily ever after in much more of a surreal way, in that Evey had to give up a lot to gain something that she wanted.

Bleak Devotion by Gemma Drazin

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Janeal Falor and Gemma Drazin.

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Jessica doesn't know how long it's been, only that it seems like forever since she's allowed her feelings to show. Ever since they attacked her city. Monsters which appear human but are void of any expression, and seem bent on destroying all signs of sentiment in others. Their lethal blades shred anyone who shows even the slightest emotion. After her only remaining friend is killed, Jessica flees the city hoping to find a place where emotions aren't fatal. A place to grieve those she lost and live out her meager existence. When she discovers the world of the emotionless creatures isn't what she believes, the love it leads her to may also be the path to her own death.

Bleak Devotion by Gemma Drazin

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Bleak Devotion(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Janeal Falor and Gemma Drazin.)

“The monster was silhouetted above her. Six thin, crescent-shaped blades protruded from the backs of both of its arms, screaming death with their every move.”



Apologies to the author, but this book and I did not get along.

The main character in this irritated me a bit. She walked a friend who she knew didn’t have a poker face straight into a store full of aliens who rip you apart if you show emotion, and then wondered why she ended up a shish kebab. Some friend she was.

“A gruesome metallic slash clanged through the air. Slowly, she turned, dreading the familiar bloody sight she knew awaited her.”



She then happened upon some kind people, who were still human, and when they told her two days later that they had an alien living with them, she went ballistic and told them they had to get rid of it, or she wouldn’t stay. Er, he’s been there a lot longer than you have love.

“If you aren’t willing to accept his presence and treat him with respect, you can leave.”



Did it not occur to her at all, that seeing as the other humans are still ALIVE that this alien might not be the ‘monster’ you keep referring to him as? That if he wanted to kill you he’s had the past 2 days to do so? That if he hadn’t saved these humans and looked after them, that you would have been dead from exposure two days ago? Talk about gratitude.

“How can you possibly know that he won’t do you harm?” Jessica tried to keep the hysteria from her voice. “You can’t.”



It wasn’t just Jessica that annoyed me though; no we also had a predictable romance, and a really unnecessary love triangle. I really disliked the fact that one moment Jessica was calling Blade a monster and trying to attack him,

“The only thing she wanted to do was run screaming at this monster who had ruined her life.”




and a couple of chapters later was in love with him! I mean really?! He wasn’t even supposed to have emotions!

“Of course I liked Blade. Everyone likes Blade. You can’t help but like Blade. He’s completely too likeable.”



Then there was the love triangle, and to be perfectly honest I couldn’t really blame the other guy for thinking that he and Jessica would get together – them being a similar age, and two of the very few humans left on earth as far as they knew. But no, Jessica is in love with the alien!

“You can’t really be choosing that monster over me, or even Ben for that matter. There’s no way you would pick one of them.”



(Oh yes she would)

Oh, and did I forget to mention, that these alien’s have no emotions, and if they do feel an emotion, 12 blades pop out of their arms so that they can destroy whatever caused said emotion, and oh yes, if you show emotion in front of them, you will face the same fate? So what does Jessica do? Oh yes, she tries to make out with one.

“Agony rent Jessica. The torment centered on her midsection, radiating out to fill her entire body. Her vision darkened.”



Well, that was your own darn fault you silly girl!

So how did the ending go? Kind-of like beauty and the beast, if the beast never became human, and most of the rest of humanity had been slayed by more of the same beasts. Ugh.


“Somehow in a world where emotions were deadly, they could make love work.”



Of course you can love.

Fantasy of Frost (The Tainted Accords #1) by Kelly St. Clare

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Kelly St. Clare.

Blurb (from Goodreads):
I know many things. What I am capable of, what I will change, what I want to become. But there is one thing I will never know. Being the Tatuma of our world, the next to rule, should have given me a privileged life. One full of friends, love and happiness. If my mother did not hate me, I probably would have had all of that. Instead, she has kept me veiled from birth, turning the possibility of this distant dream into a living nightmare. Shunned by the court, abused from childhood, I am trapped within this material barrier and will never know my own face. Only two friends and a determination to become Tatum keep me sane. I am unaware everything in my life is about to change when the peace delegate arrives from the savage world of Glacium. Hidden agendas, past secrets and my struggle to stay alive–while still becoming the person I want to be–careen wildly out of control.

Fantasy of Frost by Kelly St. Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Fantasy of Frost (The Tainted Accords #1)(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Kelly St. Clare.)

“Do you choose to wear that veil?” he asks, turning back to me.
I shake my head, and suddenly Kedrick is boiling mad. “Your mother is one sick, twisted bitch.”




This was a really stunning YA fantasy novel, leaving me highly anticipating the next instalment!

“You can’t be saying that you’ve never seen your own face,” he says. My silence is confirmation enough.



I really liked the characters in this book, and I felt so sorry for Olina. The way her mother had treated her was truly disgusting, to have never seen your own face, to be forced to veil yourself from everyone, and to also receive regular beatings at your own mother’s command is really shocking. I was really glad that Olina had managed to find love with Prince Kedrick, and I really wanted them to be allowed to be together.

“What happened?” The question barely disturbs the air, it is so quiet.
“I was being followed everywhere. They were on her before I could do anything. They slit her throat and made me watch her die.”




The world-building in this was really good, and I liked that things were explained so simply, without the use of info-dumps. I sometimes get confused by fantasy novels, but I didn’t have that problem at all with Fantasy of Frost.

“When you get married you lose the ‘O’ at the front of your name,” I say. “So when I marry. My name will go from Olina, to Lina.” I try to imagine getting married and Kedrick pops into my mind.



The storyline in this was done really well, and I even appreciated the heart-breaking moments. I felt really scared and upset for Olina at times, and I just couldn’t stop reading!

“Do not test me. Your life is forfeit if I so much as detect you have twitched your veil without my permission,”



There was some romance, and I liked it, but I was very saddened by the way this romance was brought to an end. It was just so, so sad!

“I would be more than your friend.” He steps up to me and grabs my other elbow, bringing me to face him. I place both hands on his chest to steady myself, speechless. He tilts my chin upwards, leans his head down and kisses me thorough the veil. The heat of his skin reaches mine. The veil moulds to my lips and I taste the salt of my sweat. The friction causes tingles to spread through my body all the way to my toes. “I love you,” he says.



The ending to this was a little surprising, and we were left with a bit of cliff-hanger. I will certainly be keeping an eye out for the next instalment of this thrilling tale!

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Lark Singer is seventeen years old and already on the way to a brilliant music career. As she and her band, Starlight, gear-up for an upcoming, life-changing band competition, though, life seems to be throwing her a few curve balls. The mysteries of her past seem to be unraveling, and she’s no longer certain she wants to know those answers, or how knowing about her past will affect her difficult relationship with her mother. And when her best friend, Bean, changes things between them, all her plans for a musical future are placed in jeopardy. How can she balance her unraveling personal life to keep her musical goals on track?

Lark Singer by Lisa Orchard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Lark Singer (Starlight Chronicles #2)(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Lia Orchard.)

“Don’t worry, Francine. No one in the band does drugs.”



This was a good second instalment, and I was so excited to finally find out who Lark’s father was!

“I’ll tell you the whole story, but you’ve got to promise me that you will not contact him in any way.”



Lark was once again very stubborn and headstrong in this book, she knew what she wanted, and she was determined to get it, both in relation to finding her father, and winning the American Singer contest. I was a bit upset at the way she once again lied to her mother, and I really wanted her to support her mother more, after all she had given up for her. She was at the end of the day a teenager though, so it’s probably wishful thinking!

“I know you’re lying.”

free glitter text and family website at FamilyLobby.com

The storyline in this once again revolved around Lark trying to find out who her father really was, and practicing for the American Singer contest. The storyline concerning Bean and his possibly drug habit was gone into in much more detail, and I could see how hard it was for Lark to see her best friend lie to her the way he did. Bean’s behaviour in this book really was shocking!
There was a touch of romance in this, although it also had a bit of a sting to it…

“He stares deep into my eyes and I swear he can see right into my soul. Then he kisses me.”



The ending to this was good, and I was so happy that we got to find out who Lark’s father is! Everybody who read book 1 and wondered about his identity should really pick this up to find out, because it really is revealed at the end of this book!

“Well. The answer to your questions is…” She pauses and tears fill her eyes. “Yes.”

Overall; Lark’s life is no song and dance as her father’s identity is revealed!!
