Falling Kingdoms
Falling Kingdoms

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow it's game of thrones for the hunger games generation., 12 May 2016

This review is from: Falling Kingdoms (Kindle Edition)
Falling kingdoms holds all of the key elements of a brilliant fantasy tale. There is a large amount of characters whose fates criss cross with each other through out the book...if they survive through to the end that is. The main part of the story begins with princess Cleo who is in pealsia (the world of falling kingdoms is split into three kingdoms limeros, auronaus and pealsia). Cleo is the princess of auronaus and is in pealsia with her husband to be purchasing wine, after aron (celo's soon to be husband) tries to rip off the merchant a argument breaks out between Aron and the wine sellers sons aron stabs one of the brothers henceforth killing him. As pealsia and auronaus hate each other anyway it doesn't take a lot for the chieftain of pealsia to team up with the evil king of limerous and invade auronaus. The similarities between GOT and FK is striking each chapter concentrates on a character, there is a whole magnitude of characters to like or dislike, although not as bloodthirsty or steamy as GOT FK still has plenty of killing of major characters, magic mystery and battles and villainous kings, princes and sorceress. On the whole falling kingdoms is amazing and is definitely one of my favourite fantasy books to date.

Defiance concentrates on a young girl named Rachel and boy named logan. Each chapter is told from either one of these characters viewpoints. The basic idea behind defiance is that man finds a new source of power and digs for this power. However in doing so they find something.......a creature. As the creature lays waste to the world the government collapses and villages are held together by army officials. Rachel's father is a courier and is in the position of a package when he goes missing. With her father missing Rachel journeys into the wasteland to try to find him behind the commanders back only to be caught. Now Rachel has no choice but to journey into the wasteland and retrieve the package the catch she has to hand it over to the commander. I loved this book so much c j redwine has such a magically way of writing I was totally sucked into the world and Rachel and Logan's adventure. I fell in love with logan and Rachel both are head strong characters with a fierce determination to take out the commander and the cursed one. The action scenes are out of this world I felt like I was there as they are described in such rich detail. The cursed one feels like a character rather than the monster of the story he has such a presence and power it's impossible to not be able to have a strong image of him in your mind. This is everything that a treasure in reading and why I love reading so much as this is a book I can easily forgot the world around me and become totally and utterly immersed and lost in the pages of this amazing adventure fall of action romance and amazing characters that I will forever adore.


Fantasy Lover (Dark-Hunter World Book 1)
Fantasy Lover (Dark-Hunter World Book 1)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars I like it but it lacks the action needed., 14 April 2015

Fantasy lover is about a young woman who is given a book by her best friend for her birthday. The book contains a gorgeous young solider cursed according to legend to only be released from the book when called upon to be a sex slave to the person who summons him. Which is exactly what Grace does one drunken night with her best friend selena. Grace however rejects his advances and falls in love with julian, from then it's a race against time to break the curse so that julian and grace can be together. Although I did enjoy this book and will defiantly be reading the next in the series I did feel that it lacked the quality of other series similar to this I.e. the immortals after dark by kresley cole. I am a huge fan of the immortals after dark one of the reasons being that there is a equal balance between the passionate scenes and the action and fighting that takes place. Where as fantasy lover had loads of passionate moments and hardly any action until the end which was over relatively quickly. However it does get the series of to a promising start and has defiantly interested me enough to start the next book.

This review is from: Crescendo (Kindle Edition)
Omg I love love love this dark romance saga so much it is amazing. After the events of the first book patch has become Nora's guardian angel literally and both patch and Nora are inseparable much to the annoyance of Nora's mum. However the fairytale romance is shattered after Nora tells patch that she loves him and he doesn't say it back. After that patch becomes even more secretive and does everything possible to keep Nora at arms length. Seeing no other option Nora breaks up with patch and tries to find out what if anything he is hiding. This than leads to a secret society of nephlim who are being recruited and lead by a sinister villain known as the black hand. The more Nora digs the more questions rise and part of the mystery surrounding Nora's heritage and the death of her father are unveiled. With a big twist and an even bigger cliff hanger at the end of crescendo the love between Nora and patch is going to be tested more than ever before. You know you have a good book when the rest of the world disappears and the pages of the novel totally consume your reality, which is what you get with the hush hush series. For anyone who is a fan of dark romance books this is a absolute must buy.

Kiss of a demon king concentrates on rydestorm introduced in previous books and a newer character called Sabine. In this installment of the immortals after dark we are introduced to the sorceri who are immortal beings with magical abilities and are able to steal others (mainly witches) powers. Sabine is known as the queen of illusions and along with her sister lanthe are allied with their half brother omort the deathless. Nither sabine or lanthe have any allegiance to omort they do however have no choice but to do his bidding as he gives them a small douse of a deadly poison each day that only he has the cure for. Rydestorm is the king of the rage demons but has lost his kingdom to omort when cadeon (rydestorms brother) failed to answer his summons and protect the throne while rydestorm went to fight a vampire horde attacking part of his kingdom. Sabine has been prophesied to bear a child which will than lead to the well of souls and the power that lies in this well being unleashed. Omort wants that power and orders Sabine to seduce rydestorm in order to bear the child that will lead to this power being unlocked. However what omort doesn't count on is the two of them falling in love. I loved sabines character she is feisty tough and takes no prisoners but still has a vulnerable side that is easy to relate to. The combination of Sabine and rydestorm is a real powerhouse both are willing to do what needs to be done and happily play at each other's weaknesses to gain what they need and want. Which makes there love story very believable as it grows bit by bit so that by the end it really is two soul mates. With all the hallmarks of the previous books that make the immortals after dark so addictive kiss of a demon king is a high action dark and smouldering adventure that will have you picking up the next installment in seconds.

This review is from: Hush, Hush (Kindle Edition)
Amazing doesn't even begin to cover it. Like many other dark romance saga hush hush centers around a pretty girl who falls in love with the new boy of the class with his secretive background and a dangerous edge Nora is totally drawn to patch. Patch is a fallen angel with his own agenda until he meets Nora and falls in love with her and that's when things get complicated. What I loved about hush hush was that it's not predictable patch has a dark side and a dark past and does at times use his angels powers for his own benefit. Nora is a head strong feisty young woman who doesn't spend all her time moping about how patch isn't paying her enough attention or how unfair everything is. More than anything else I totally believed in the love between patch and Nora and can't wait to see what dangers they face next. If your a twilight fan than this is a must and to be honest much darker and dangerous with brilliant lead characters.

Ruin and Rising (THE GRISHA Book 3)
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars So gutted its over....somebody needs to make these books into movies so I can enjoy it all over again, 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In a word an amazing trilogy that has easily secured Leigh Bardugo as one of my all time favourite authors. I am gutted its over so engrossed was I in these books that I didn't even realise I had finished the book. In this final installment of the grisha trilogy the darkling has been stalled a second time by Alina however the cost of that victory is great and alina is nearly killed. Forced to hideaway while she recovers the darkling gathers strength ready to march on ravka. Things are looking pretty bad with the darkling gathering his forces and some of alinas allies on the run she has no choice but to go after the third amplifier from there it's a show down with the darkling. As with the previous two books I was totally sucked into alinas adventure and world. There were moments that caught me totally of guard and am still on reflection can't believe happened. The only flaw for me is the final battle I was expecting it to bigger and much larger than it turned out to be. Nevertheless it is still an amazing trilogy that will have you laughing, cheering on our heroes as well as feeling their heartache and pain. Just buy it and treasure an amazing adventure

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow omg I love this trilogy sooooooo much, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In a word amazing and just as addictive as the first one. Siege and storm kicks of straight after the events of the first book with alina and mal on the run from the darkling. It is not long however though before the darkling catches up and they are taken prisoner and put onboard a ship to find the second amplifier. With the help of a new character known as strumhound mal and alina manage to gain the second amplifier and escape the darkling again. Knowing the danger that they face alina decides to take control of the second army in an attempt to kill the darkling. Just as addictive and engrossing as the first book the stakes are raised and the danger and adventure is just as epic.


Vampire Academy: Spirit Bound
Vampire Academy: Spirit Bound
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant stuff and what awesome ending., 8 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Spirit bound is book number 5 in the vampire acamedy series and follows on from the events of the last book. After narrowly escaping from Dimitri rose returns to the acaemdy to finish her education and become a official guardian. However rose graduation isn't that simple and when Dimitri returns and is turned back from being a strigoi to his former self things gets complicated. After rose and lissa break Victor out of prison and they find out how to change Dimitri from strigoi back to dhampir the solution seems impossible and results in rose deciding on a heartbreaking decision to let Dimitri go. So when Dimitri does come back its a shock and more complicated due to the fact that she becomes involved with Adrian. There is a massive cliffhanger at the end that is a huge shocker and will most defiantly have you reaching for the last book in the vampire acamedy series. All in all spirit bound is a brilliant edition to the series and will have you well and truly hooked.
