Gears Of Fate
Gears of Fate (Forgotten Gods) (Volume 1) - Wilbert Stanton

My previous experience with Wilbert Stanton's work, The Artful, was not a good match, but how could I resist a book that mixes steampunk, Greek gods and Fey.

What I liked was that it tried to deliver something different, mixing a lot of things together and trying to be fresh in a genre where that is not easy. However, while some concepts where nicely worked out, the different Pantheons for example, the pacing felt off. There is a rather slow start with a lot of explaining and then, at the end, a lot happens in the final few chapters.

A nice concept, but the execution could have been better.

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

Owl’s Slumber
Owl's Slumber - Nicky James

Not even sure I was aware of Somniphobia but good heavens my heart breaks for anyone struggling with this fear. A fear that affects not only the person mentally but quite physically as well. And I felt it all in this story.

 

This book starts and ends quite sweet and loving. A true romance. But what occurs in the middle 60% of this book hurt. But hurt in the way Nicky James does her best. Once again she has shown a strength in her desires to explore love and mental illness and she did so quite remarkably.

 

I struggled a little with the connection between Finnley and Aven and while they no doubt loved and supported one another, their bond was less felt than with other books by this author.

 

I eagerly await the next in this series and more on heliophobia. Wow.

True As Fate - Laurie Alice Eakes

I received this books as part of the NERFA romance writers contest to be judged. First, the good aspects: the plot was amazing, the characters were strong, the conflict well-developed and multifaceted. I loved the characters and their adventure. Chloe was such a strong female protagonist and she kept Ross on his toes.  Ross was complex and well-defined.  You understood his motivations, his drive for vengeance, and even why he clung to the ideal that Chloe’s sister represented. Overall great story. Now for my one and only negative…it was more a historical fiction then a historical romance. Yes they kissed and they were attracted to each other but beyond one, maybe two, passionate kisses there is absolutely no passion.  No sex, no indecent moments, nothing. If you can keep in mind that this isn’t really a romance, then you will love the story because it was great, but I expected a romance and didn’t get it.  Yes it is a love story, but a tame and “proper for the times” kind of love story.  I’m giving this 4 stars because the plot and characters are strong enough and entertaining enough that I kept with it, but I am disappointed there was no passion.  If it had that it would definitely be a 5 star romance all the way.  I do recommend it, just go into it knowing there won’t be the traditional romance novel qualities that we look for and enjoy when we pick up one to read.

New Release Review! Jilly’s Wyked Fate (Ashland Pride #7) R.E. Butler!
Jilly's Wyked Fate - R.E. Butler

 

 

Mountain lion shifter, Jilly Fallon, has been waiting for nearly three years to turn twenty-one, so she can finally – finally! – officially mate Wyked and Fate Myers, the twin brothers who have stolen her heart. When a panther is injured at a clan gathering and Jilly can’t help, the clan healer takes her to visit a fae healer so she can learn what she needs. During the second visit to see the fae, they find themselves protecting a young girl with pink and blue wings, and a secret that got her family killed. 

Wyked and Fate Myers feel like the last three years have taken an eternity. Now that she’s finally theirs, they’re ready to start a family with their beloved mountain lion. During the last full moon before their clan begins to travel, an old enemy resurfaces, intent on making Jilly suffer for her betrayal. When Wyked and Fate are gravely injured, will she lose them both? 

Contains M/F/M interaction and a happily ever after worth waiting for. 

 

 

I have been waiting impatiently to read Jilly’s story as I am sure Jilly was waiting impatiently for the day of mating to finally take place and I have to tell you that it was well worth the wait. Jilly, Wyked and Fate are strong, charismatic characters that have fascinated me since they met each other. And now, well their passion had each and every page smoldering with some intense heat and well their mating was anything but boring as they sure had lots of emotional issues and other exciting events taking place, so there was never a dull moment anywhere in this book. The Ashland Pride is always fascinating and have easily captured my heart and continue to do so even as it grows, the stories are full of suspense and excitement as well as the wonderful romances that spark such spectacular multiple partner relationships.

 

R.E. Butler continues to bring readers stories full of passion and enjoyment by describing her worlds and characters with vivid detail that brings them to life and makes it so easy to pretend to be part of the story as it unfolds. Which of course, is how I became and continue to be so totally caught up in the Pride and their adventures and I don’t think that the author could have made Jilly’s Wyked Fate any better as she also introduced new characters and given us hints to future stories which I am certainly looking forward to.

 

 

Jilly’s Wyked Fate is the 7th book in the Ashland Pride series.

 

The 8th book - Embracing Ehrin will be available June 4, 2018.

 

Jilly’s Wyked Fate is available in ebook at:
