Three Heart Echo by Keary Taylor
Three Heart Echo - Keary Taylor

5*

I wish I could give this more then 5 stars. I really enjoyed this creepy story. I would love to read a background book of this story as well.  Keary Taylor has done an awesome job with this book.  Every other chapter is either Iona or Sully's thoughts. So you get a good picture of the whole story instead of just one side. The book is kind of thought provoking with a "What If?" added to reality. 

 

The book is about Iona Faye. Her Fiance Jack Caraway has been murdered in front of her and Iona just cannot force herself to move on, all she does is think of Jack and her loss. She finds out about Sully Whitmore. Who is said to talk to the dead.

 

Sully lives in the abandoned town of Roselock. Just him and the ghosts of the town live here. The men of Sully's family have been cursed and all males dies when they are 33 years, 3 months and 3 days old. Sully is just turning 33 and is just biding his time and waiting for the end to come. 

 

Iona shows up to get help from Sully by talking to Jack so she can get some closure.  Everything is not as simple as a loved one has passed away move on. They find out that Jack is not what Iona thought he was. He was evil in life and in death. It is up to Sully to find out from the spirits of Jack and the 3 other women's deaths he has had a hand in and save Iona before the curse comes to call him. 

 

I won't tell you the end but I was kind of shocked. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

House of Royals Audiobook
House of Royals - Keary Taylor

House of Royals was an interesting read for me. It has been a long time since I have fallen in love with a vampire novel as easily as I did with this one.

 

Keary Taylor wrote this lovely story. This is the first book in a seven-book series so far. It is about a girl named Alivia. She is a 22-year-old girl who just moved to the south after her father someone she has never met died and left her everything he had in his will. I will not go into more detail than that because I feel that every bit of the story is a giveaway.

 

Now, I listened to the audio book so I will get into details about how I thought the narrator did.

 

First, let us talk about the actual writing in the book. I really enjoyed the writing flow of how Keary wrote. It wasn't too fast or too slow. The main character Alivia I really enjoyed her. I found that I was really invested in the well being of this character. Although, I will say this about Alivia, I felt that was really wasn't reading a story of a 22 year old woman, but more of someone who was in their late teen years. Not saying that the character was not relatable. She was. I just felt that I was reading about a teenager. Closer to the end of the novel did I feel that I was reading about a 22 year old young woman.

 

Now on the narrator. When it comes to audio books I am really critical on the person who reads the novel. They can make or break an audio book. I have listened to a lot of audio books in my time.

 

I LOVED the woman who narrators this novel. Her name is Renee Dorian. The way she read this novel had me hooked from the very first paragraph that she read. Renee had a lot different voices when she was voicing for all of the different characters. This gives the narrator big brownie points from me. When any narrator can do this I know that I am going to enjoy the book. I am looking forward to hearing her narrate the rest of this series.

 

Oh wait I forgot to tell you that this book is free on the Kindle. I bought the audio book as an add on for $1.99. You can't beat that in my opinion.

 

I will have to give this book a 4.5 out of 5.

Branded (Fall of Angels #1) by Keary Taylor
Branded - Keary Taylor
Branded is a story about a girl, slightly different from the norm, because when she sleeps, she travels to where the angels are... sounds pleasant enough, doesn't it? The trouble is, Jessica has to stand in for whoever is being judged, and she will feel the pain of being branded if they go 'down', or the joy if they go 'up'. 
 
She tries to stay awake for as long as possible, she doesn't mix socially, and she is still quite happy with her life. That changes when she finds out that the people she is house-sitting for have died, and their grandson now owns everything. Alex says that she can stay on though, and a tentative friendship starts up. 
 
However, the leader of the Condemned suddenly disappears, and things change for Jessica.
 
This book is well written, with some twists and turns to keep you occupied during the length of the story. It has quite a smooth pace, with some interesting supporting characters. However, there is a big dollop of InstaLove, not just once but with both main males. Although, I guess you could call Cole's attraction as wanting possession, rather than insta-love. Still, it was a bit much for me. 
 
Recommended for anyone who wants a different take on angels, and doesn't mind instalove.

delicious, little guilty pleasure for those that like their PNR with pg-13 R
House of Pawns (House of Royals) (Volume 2) - Keary Taylor

Hot damn this author likes her cliffhangers!! This was another one shot, marathon read. In just a few hours I not only devoured this book but simultaneously vowed to track down the next and ultimately cursed the bibliogods above that book #3, House of Kings, is not out yet. I NEED to know what happens. Yes, this series is not ground breaking. Yes it's a bit laid back, using lots of layman-isms (I'm owning that monstrosity of a word...spell check be damned). Yes it's a brisk, easily digested mind munchie...a guilty little (semi) secret pleasure (sans Sexy Time scenes for those that care) BUT it will grab you and keep you firmly until the very last page of the F'ing impending Cliffhanger. The world building didn't miraculously get better and the writing is still lax and easy going but the complexity of the characters, their ever evolving/malleable politics as well as their enthralling back stories will ensnare you...entrap you...it will enmesh and entangle you...you will be bewitched as I have been and as the raving reviewers on GR have been. I wasn't blown away but I was most assuredly entertained and my interest piqued for a few hours and really, that's an awesome way to spend the day. All in all it is a solid, entertaining PN(with slight hints of)R.

a quick, well written bit of brain candy...for FREE on Amazon
House of Royals - Keary Taylor

This is a solid 3.5 Star read! It has a new spin on the Vampire world, which is always nice. The MC, Alivia, is a strong willed, quick witted, naive in some ways but not easily manipulated human (mostly, for now). The pacing is brisk and the world development is ok. The characters are the crux of the story. There is a budding romance for you PNR people but nothing too overwhelming. The writing is laid back and I breezed through this book in one sitting. The ending wasn't entirely unforseen but satisfying nonetheless. This is not earth shattering, mind boggling awesomeness... What it IS is a quick, well written bit of brain candy...did I mention it was free on Amazon? All that and free?? Got get it, just don't forget to floss!!
