Prodigy Prince Spoiler Free Review
Prodigy Prince (The Seven Covenant) (Volume 1) - Natasha Sapienza

 

Prodigy Prince is the first book in a new YA Fantasy series, the Seven Covenant, by Natasha Sapienza. 

 

Rating: 4.5 Stars 

 

Zephoris is a place of peace and harmony… or at least it was. Prince Nuelle discovers not all is as it seems when his entire life is turned upside down in one day. Traveling to the knight academy our young hero has his destiny thrust upon him: it’s up to him and his six prodigies to defeat the evil Antikai.

 

Reading Prodigy Prince is quite literally stepping into another world. Sapienza’s worldbuilding is epic and unique complete with magic, monsters and evil henchmen. Like any story with a new world, stepping into it takes some getting used to. However, the Tribe Guide and the Creature Guide provide ample knowledge whenever something new is introduced into the story.

 

It was quite easy falling in love with the array of characters in Prodigy Prince. There is a slew of characters in this story and it would have been very easy for each new character to appear to be a static, boring person. That is not the case in this novel. I felt that each character introduced had their own unique personality which was explored upon in great detail. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series to see where further development can take these characters.

 

The plot was fast-paced. Every page I turned it seemed like something new was happening; there was always some action and hardly a dull moment within the pages of this book. This story wasn’t typical, the plot turned and spun in new directions that I couldn’t even see what was coming next. I enjoyed being surprised.

 

I recall shouting when I reached the end of the novel. Whether that was for joy, sadness, surprise or horror, I’ll leave that spoiler out. I was in awe at the ending and I am very excited to see where the next books in the series will lead.

 

I’d recommend this novel to anyone who loves high fantasy, adventures, and/or fast-paced reads.

 

(Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review)

Pib's Dragon (Twisted Fairy Tales) by Beany Sparks
Pib's Dragon (Twisted Fairy Tales) - Beany Sparks

The first half was OK, I was thinking 3-3.5 stars, but second part was full of info dumps and unnecessary details.
Uber convenient magical abilities and handy magical artifacts popping up at the times of need don't add stars either.

Royal Blood by Tiamat
Royal Blood - Tiamat

The rating will most likely depend on whether you read this story as a stand alone or withing the series. As a part of the series, it might easily fetch 5 stars.

The book starts in a humorous fairy tale fashion, pulling you right in: the characters are somewhat familiar, the setting is typical, the story is easy to follow. You know this set-up, you move along, quite sure of yourself and the boys in the tale.

However, just as you begin to think "oh, I know where it's going!", the unusual (especially where the puzzled Prince is concerned) turn of events shifts the story line and you find yourself as puzzled as the Prince himself. Series of hot, steamy and very passionate almost - but not quite! - dub-con scenes follow, with still enough plot and humor to go around.

In the end, all parties get what they deserve and want. 

No kittens, tigers or babies were actually hurt (much) during the production of this book :D

Stolen Hearts (Stolen Hearts) by Sasha L. Miller
Stolen Hearts - Sasha L. Miller

Нудная середина и нудный конец. Я ожидала больше, чем "она его за муки полюбила, а он ее за состраданье к ним".

 

The "comfort" bit of hurt/comfort was overdone, trying to compensate for falling in love, I guess. Once Callisto's new charm was in place to stabilize his condition, everything slowed down to a crawl.

By Fairy Means or Foul (Starfig Investigations #1) by Meghan Maslow
By Fairy Means or Foul: A Starfig Investigations Novel - Meghan Maslow

Similar books: Lord MouseThick as Thieves

 

This book is a light humorous adventure/quest. 

Brandsome the Unicorn lost his horn. He hires a PI named Twig, half-dragon/half-elf, who takes the job and promises to find the horn in question and bring it back. 

Being put down as a collateral for down payment, Quinn, the unicorn's human sex slave, takes on the role of a side-kick to Twig.

After three years of slavery and abuse, Quinn is happy for a short break, even more so because he adores his handsome new (if temporary) master. Of course, there are flashbacks and discussions of slavery under unicorn's hoof, but Quinn is living in the moment and enjoying his short freedom, not wanting to dwell on his misery. Twig treats him like an equal, at the same time being a bit on over-protective side due to his dragon-half mating surges. Twig Starfig is tough and rough, but knows firsthand how the rest of the world treats those who don't fit in it perfectly. 

The odd couple - a plain non-magical human pet and a half-breed - travels around the realm, playing dangerous card games with elves, boarding ghost ships, fighting zombies, drinking tea with cyclopes and making acquaintances with demons in penis-shaped castles (yep, that's a thing!). 

There is a bit of angst in the end, seeing how Quinn can't go back to Brandsome-the-Unicorn, not if Twig has any say in it, but mostly this book is about adventure and how it brings two odd creatures together. Love conquers all, they say =) Well, that and a very influential father-elf ;)
