๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
What can I say...that was a satisfying ending to an intriguing series.  While I found the first book in this series hard to decipher with all the ginormous words that I never heard before being thrown around like everyday language,  I honestly didn't know if I would continue the series.  That is until I tried the Audio version with book #2.  With the easy to understand narration from Evita Jay, I found a way to like this sesquipedalian*writing style of Vic James.

The unique alternative slash dystopian-ish modern day British setting and the captivating characters...from the good to the bad and the completely unusual made this possible for me to really get into the story, despite being confused at times.  The ending was unexpected, but it completely worked.

*I totally looked that word up...and I think I used it correctly.

Review: "Bound Gods: Betrayed" (Bound Gods, #3) by Adrienne Wilder
Bound Gods: Betrayed - Adrienne Wilder

This was NOT a romance, not even in the broadest sense, but simply torture porn.

 

75% of this book was just torture scene after torture scene between a sadist, a pain slut and an idiot. None of it was even remotely arousing or sexy, but just cringeworthy and painful to read. I skimmed through most of it.

 

The rest consisted of boring dialogues, repetitive explanations, and a plot that hasn't really moved any forward since the last book. I really don't care about any of the characters enough to find out what's gonna happen to them, nor do I want to continue with this series.

 

And that's why I call it quits here.

Review: "Bound Gods: Chained" (Bound Gods, #2) by Adrienne Wilder
Bound Gods: Chained - Adrienne Wilder

Truly not for the faint of heart, and I really, REALLY hate everything about sounding *cringes and screams internally* and especially reading about it in excruciating detail. SO not my kink. And yet I can't stop reading this series.

Cover Reveal! Hardest Fall (Dominion #2) Juliette Cross!

 

Welcome, Readers! Today, I have a wonderful cover reveal for you - Hardest Fall - the 2nd book in the Dominion series by Juliette Cross! Enjoy and don't forget to add it to your shelf!

 

 

 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Title/Author: HARDEST FALL by Juliette Cross

Release Date: February 25, 2019

 


Blurb:

 

The tattooed demoness, Bone, doesn’t like anything except the magical weapons she makes. But she has hidden talents few know about. When I was brought to her near death, she used her Seraph song to manipulate flesh and bone to save me. But she wasn’t happy about it.

 

Now I must return the favor. Even though she refuses to take sides in the apocalypse, there’s one job she’s not willing to do for the demon prince Rook. If she doesn’t, her head will end up on a spike. Of course, but I will do anything to protect this fierce woman—and not just because she saved me.

 

So now we’re both off to kill a demon—or three—and possibly save the world.

Juliette lives in lush, moss-laden Louisiana where she lives with her husband, four kids, and black lab, Kona.

 

Multi-published author of paranormal and urban fantasy romance, she loves reading and writing brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes.

 

From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance. Even then, she not only longed to read more novels set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own.
