Deceptively Beautiful
Deceptively Beautiful: A Daath Wedding - Eliza Tilton

Deceptively Beautiful was an unexpected surprise, as I thought the series was already concluded after the third book. While it is brought forward as book 4, it is more of a novella though. It takes place around the wedding of the main characters.

It's been a while since I read the other books, but while it was a quick and nice read, I was wondering what it ultimately adds to the series. I would recommend it to fans, but for the story, it is not that important.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Wicked Path - Eliza Tilton

Title: Wicked Path

Author: Eliza Tilton

Genre: YA Fantasy

Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR

 

 

Blurb:

In Wicked Path: Book Two of the Daath Chronicles brother and sister are forced to opposite sides of Tarrtainya on a fast-paced adventure where the wildlife isn't the only thing trying to kill them.

 

Three months have passed since Avikar defeated the Reptilian Prince, and he still can't remember his battle with Lucino. On the hunt for answers, he returns to the scene of the fight and discovers a strange connection between his family's dagger and the mysterious kingdom of Daath, and it seems only his distant father can reveal the truth behind it all.

 

Before Avikar can travel back home, Lucy assaults him in the market and forces him to flee to Nod Mountains--a place few dare to enter, and even less return from. With Raven and her childhood friend by his side, they must survive the treacherous journey through the pass with a vengeful Lucy hunting them. If they don't, they'll never see home again.

 

Jeslyn's new life in Luna Harbor is the perfect remedy for her confused and broken heart. But when a group of mercenaries kidnap her beloved Grandfather, interrupting her daily routine as his jewelry apprentice, she's forced to join forces with the one person from her past she tried to forget.

 

And his assistance comes with a price.

Excerpt:

Our ship was gone, leaving us alone in an empty sea. Out here with nothing but calm water, I felt deserted; terrified. All those mornings I’d wished to venture out into the sea, to explore its beauty and splendor, I had no real understanding of the danger. How easily it was to be lost—and what about the creatures? We had no weapons, and if a shark attacked, how would we survive?

 

I wrapped my arms around my sides, praying and wishing this was all a horrific dream—that Grandfather was safe in his bed, snoring, and none of this was real.

Because if it wasn’t a dream, I was going to die.

Crimson Tides
Crimson Tides - Eliza Tilton

Crimson Tides concludes the story of Daath, where reptilian like aliens have made plans to take over the world as their own planet is dying. I would recommend not to start reading this novel until you've read the rest of the series, as the action starts right from the first page.

 

While I think it was a nice conclusion to the series, the same things that bothered me during the earlier books where also here. I didn't like all the characters, and at times it was really quite unrealistic (yes, I'm saying this about a book with an alien as one of the main characters). However, I had not anticipated the shock I would feel at the death of some of the characters, meaning I was more invested into the story than I at first thought.

 

All in all, the Daath chronicles were a nice series, but not one that blew me away or that I would plan to reread.

 

Read my reviews for the rest of the series:

Broken Forest (Daath Chronicles #1)

Wicked Path (Daath Chronicles #2)

Deadly Dance (Daath Chronicles #2.5)

Deadly Dance
Deadly Dance: A Daath Short Story (The Daath Chronicles) - Eliza Tilton

Talk of war has reached Lakewood and Derrick is busy day and night crafting weapons and armor for his father, which keeps him from thinking of Jeslyn and how she left. When Lucy shows up at his shop, smirking, and talking about Jeslyn's mysterious disappearance, he's ready to slice off her head; instead, he decides to see if her claims about Jeslyn and Lucino vanishing together are true.

As Derrick and Lucy embark on a hunt to find Jeslyn and Lucino, their hatred will turn into mutual acceptance as the trail will lead them into Nomad's land and straight into war.

 

I still haven't decided on what my general opinion is on these in-between books that seem to be everywhere lately. Of course, if it's a favourite series, it's always great to be able to read more about it. But I'm always afraid the stories don't really add something to the story.

 

This short story set of Broken Forest and Wicked Path focuses on two characters we've not really seen in the second book. I really had to think who Derrick was again, I'd all but forgotten about him.

 

Fans of the series will certainly like it, and for me it's hard to judge right now how much of it will be useful in the third full length novel which will be published shortly, but for now, while an entertaining and fast read, I didn't think it added much to the story or was really long enough to get to know either Lucy or Derrick.

Wicked Path
Wicked Path - Eliza Tilton

Wicked Path being the sequel to Broken Forest, I was prepared for the lots of first person POVs that shocked me earlier. Also, I was hoping that Jeslyn would finally stop being so terribly naive.

 

The story continues (mostly) with the same characters, and their goals are also mainly the same, although Avikar is no longer saving his sister (and in this book he seemed far less troubled with the death of his little brother).

 

There is more action and magic, and overall I liked the story better. Although, now I think of it, some of it doesn't make that much sense. Jeslyn takes some more action of her own, but in the end is still utterly helpless and easily influenced. If you're looking for a strong female lead, keep looking.

 

However, I find these nice snackbooks (easy, fast, no need to think to much books) so I just hope Jeslyn will learn from her mistakes in the next book.
