TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - ECHO Academy (Dimension Drift #4) by Christina Bauer
ECHO Academy (Dimension Drift #4) - Christina Bauer

@XpressoTours, @Archaeolibrary, @CB_Bauer, #ScienceFiction#Dystopian#Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

ECHO Academy is the last part of the Dimension Drift series and concludes the story between Thorne and Meimi.

After stopping one world takeover, Meimi, Zoe, and Chloe are left trying to re-open an exile void so they can return to Umbra to be with their transcendents. Thorne is also trying to find a way to be with Meimi WITHOUT her becoming his stepmother!

This NEEDS to be read as a series otherwise you won't know what the hell is going on! It is very fast-paced with lots of "dimension" science mentioned. I enjoyed the characters and how they interacted with each other. One surprise wasn't really a surprise (Conway) but I liked how it was incorporated into the story and made it all make sense.

Although we have a HEA ending, I am hoping from hints given in the book, that this is not the last we have seen of our characters from Umbra. A thoroughly enjoyable series that I have no hesitation in recommending and a brilliant conclusion.

TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Rhodes (Angelbound Offspring #4) by Christina Bauer
Rhodes (Angelbound Offspring #4) - Christina Bauer

@XpressoTours, @CB_Bauer, #Fantasy, #YoungAdult, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

Rhodes is the fourth book in the Angelbound Offspring series, and continues the story featuring Rhodes and Zinnia.

Zinnia is still living in the tower and visited by Rhodes whenever possible, which is difficult in itself as he is currently undergoing training. Huntress and Kaps, plus all the band members, help with Zinnia's idea on how to end things once and for all.

Rhodes is definitely a continuation to Zinnia, so even if you don't read the others (but why?), you should definitely read that one, otherwise you won't have the faintest idea about all the subtleties and nuances that are there. The world-building is just as good as all the others, and the connection between Rhodes and Zinnia is stronger than ever. Kaps doesn't play as big a part in this book, which I was thankful for. A favourite character of mine is Bash though. I would love for him to have a bigger role.

All in all, this was a great addition to the series that I thoroughly enjoyed. I can't wait to continue the series, and have no hesitation in recommending both the book and the series.

TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Zinnia (Angelbound Offspring #3) by Christina Bauer
Zinnia Special Edition (Angelbound Offspring #3) - Christina Bauer

@XpressoTours, @CB_Bauer, #Fantasy, #YoungAdult, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

Zinnia is the third book in the Angelbound Offspring series, and this time it features the children of Portia and Tempest. I say children because Kaps plays just a big a role in this as Zinnia does. I know they are twins, but I really would have preferred for Zinnia's story to be less involved with Kaps. 

 

At a young age, Zinnia knows that Rhodes is her Rhana, and is happy with all the innocence that brings. However, enemies of the family do 'bad magic' and Zinnia is taken away, and her memories bound. Fast forward, and Zinnia is preparing herself for the ritual that will bring back Chimera when her only friend is taken from her. In a rebellious moment, she decides to take the last few days of her life for herself, and accidentally finds Rhodes.

 

This was a smooth read, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading. I loved how Zinnia was different, more formal and old school, to the others. Kaps I just found annoying. The connection between Rhodes and Zinnia was just as strong as before, and I loved how he was trying to help her without fully knowing the story.

 

A great addition to the series, and definitely recommended by me.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Alien Minds (Dimension Drift #1) by Christina Bauer
Alien Minds (Dimension Drift #1) - Christina Bauer

DIVERGENT meets OCEAN’S EIGHT in this urban fantasy heist!

 

On my seventeenth birthday, I wake up in the hospital to find I just survived a sketchy but terrible accident. My parents stand by my bedside—both are beautiful, wealthy, and super-nice. They tell me that once I leave the hospital, I’ll attend the prestigious ECHO Academy, where I’ll churn out equations for the government along with my mega-smart peers.

 

So, I’m living the perfect life. 

 

Then why does everything feel all wrong? 

 

My parents, my house and even ECHO Academy…none of it fits. Plus, what’s up with Thorne, my brooding yet yummy classmate who keeps telling me I need to remember my true past, which seems to have included a lot of us kissing? That’s one thing I’d really like to remember, except for the fact that I’m pretty sure Thorne is hiding a ton of nasty secrets of his own, including the fact that he may not be from this world. But considering how my own past seems alien to me, it’s not like I can judge. Plus, Thorne has dimples. That’s a problem.

 

And worst of all, why does it feel so yucky to work on these calculations for the government? It’s all supposed to be part of ECHO, but my heart tells me that I’m helping something truly terrible come to pass. Thorne seems to think that kissing him again will release my real memories. 

 

Maybe it’s time to pucker up.

 

“Appealing and engaging. Love the strong female character!” – Arlene’s Book Reviews

 

This new series is perfect for: fans of urban fantasy, action & adventure, cool science, evil corporations, forbidden romance and hot new classmates who may or may not be aliens.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Cradled (Beholder #4.5) by Christina Bauer
Cradled (Beholder #5) - Christina Bauer
Cradled is the last novella in the Beholder series. We already know the majority of the characters, but it's always good to reunite with them! Rowan and Elea are more than happy together, just with minor problems caused by their families. However, trouble comes there way in the shape of Kronos, who is the ruler of the planet Elea's parents were exiled to. They need the help of the Lightning Goddess and her Consort to save Jicho, and bring back the peaceful times to their rule.
 
Although this is only a novella, there is still plenty of action. The Lightning Goddess and her Consort are crossover characters from another series, but you don't need to know as that it doesn't really impact this story. I loved their attitudes however, and I loved how Elea and Rowan were with them.
 
With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this felt like the perfect ending to Rowan and Elea's story. With all characters playing a part, it felt like the ending. I finished this book feeling completely satisfied, with a happy smile on my face.
 
If you like this series, then you defintiely need to read this one! It's just not complete without it!
