Great Story and Characters
Fall of the Dragon Prince (The Forgotten... Fall of the Dragon Prince (The Forgotten Heirs Trilogy) - Dan Allen

King Toran was able to do the impossible and join the five realms. The destiny of each realm is tied to each of his hidden heirs. Now that the king is dead, his enemies are gathering to destroy any heirs. It’s now up to a self-appointed librarian to unravel the mystery.

I liked this book more than I thought I would. Everything was written in great detail. I loved being pulled into the story of Terith and the journey he went through. I look forward to reading the next book in this saga.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Speculative Dystopian Fiction
Fall of the Cities: Planting the Orchard - Vance Huxley

** spoiler alert ** Good speculative dystopian fiction contemplating the of sudden loss of oil and its impact on the world.
At first, reading it, I thought it was back in the first Gulf War when the guys were in Iraq/Kuwait and the oil wells had been set on fire, and burned forever, but as I read further into the story, I realized that no, this is in the future and terrorists have attacked wells the world over. The result is that society as we know it basically comes to a halt and as expected, the majority of people panic and go crazy. The ones with more evil in their hearts use the unrest and chaos as an excuse to loot, rape, kill and destroy with no one really maintaining order. The are a minority of sane people left (or that is the way it seems) who choose still to act like civilized humans and only kill if need be in self defense, and not because they enjoy it. Harry Miller, ex- soldier, becomes their leader, though not by his choice. Everyone in their group looks up to him, though, for strength, courage and wisdom, to decide what should courses of action should be, responses to threats, and eventually how to react to the deaths of those they have grown fond of. With a lesser leader and one given easily to anger, the group could have easily spiraled out of control, wanting revenge on others but Harry keeps a steady course, though at times it got difficult. It would be difficult to live in the circumstances the group had to-- shortages in basics, constant onslaught of violence and continually living in that "flight or fight" mode, and not having any hope anything will change anytime soon. It was good to see them in the end get some relief, but I don't think the end was a happy one. The government ended up monitoring everyone in a way that even a tally of how many cans of beans, rolls of toilet paper, bars of soap, etc. you used in a given month, because money was useless and everyone got vouchers for basics, like rations. So they basically had to trade peace for security. In my mind, with all that invasion of privacy, that was the lesser of two evils. It didn't make me like the book less, I just felt sad for the characters of the story. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the author... thank you!

Favorite book(s) of the month: Where I Found You

 

Books started this month but haven't finished yet: Mörderische Hingabe, Renegade Red

 

How is january already over? How does time work?
No but seriously, I had so many appointments this last month and if you know me, I'm not one for leaving the house, having appointments always throws me off and my mind makes everything a bigger deal than it has to be. But anyways, I'm actually surprised how many books I have read this month. I mean there is a short story in there and a comic, also an audio book but still...I'm happy with myself!!! I'm also very happy with the quality of the books I have read, I wanted to put them all as my favorite books but there is actually only one book, that I'm still thinking about a lot, so I just wrote that one down.

Release Blitz - Free Fall

 

Today we have the release blitz of Emily Goodwin’s Free Fall! We’re excited to share this new romance—be sure to check it out and grab your copy today!

 

 

 

 

Title: Free Fall

Author: Emily Goodwin

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

About Free Fall:

 

 

I’ll never forget the first time I saw Nora Fisher. The way my heart sped up in my chest and blood rushed through every part of me. I was drawn to her the moment our eyes met.

 

She was beautiful.

 

 

Guarded.

Damaged.

Just like me.

 

I never meant to hurt the only woman I’ve ever loved. She was light, and I was dark, casting shadows on everything around me. Letting her go meant spiraling back into the darkness only Nora could pull me from. But I’d sacrifice myself a thousand times for her.

 

Four years later, she’s back, and the passion she ignites makes the fight for her stronger. But the more I try to make things right, the more I realize how complicated things have become.

 

And now I'm starting to see that maybe her light was never meant to be mine.

 

Free Fall is a standalone, contemporary romance.

Exclusive Excerpt:

 

 

Still, the thought of getting naked with Jack scares me as much as it exhilarates me. I want to make him feel. I want to make him happy.


“I want to,” I whisper, feeling the spark bust into a wildfire.


“Stop,” he growls and sits up. “Not now. Not here.”


He doesn’t have to explain it for me to understand. Things won’t end with a kiss. I take my hand from his side and interlock our fingers again. I move up and lean against the wall, looking through the cut-out window at the stars.


He tightens the grip on my hand. “How do you do it?”


“Do what?”

 

“Keep going like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.”

 

“Because there has to be. I’m scared of the dark, and the only way to get back to the light is to keep going. Even when the light is fading, and things seem impossible. You just keep going.”

 

“Don’t you ever want to give up?”

 

I’m nothing but honest. I don’t need to hold up a front around Jack. “Yes. Especially lately. But what good would that do? My grandma used to tell me ‘you can’t lose if you’re trying’, and I never really got it before. I guess it’s kinda like losing a battle but not the war, and the only person you’re truly at war with is yourself.”

 

“I never thought of it that way.”

 

“Mimi had a unique way of looking at the world. She was tough. The strongest person I’ve ever known. My grandpa died like a year and a half before my mom. She lost her husband and then her daughter so close together. And then had to take in a six-year-old.”

 

“You’re tough too.”

 

“So are you.”

 

Jack shakes his head. “No. I’m not.”

 

“What you did was so brave.”

 

“Being brave and being tough are different. The toughness comes after you did that brave thing. And I…I’ve given up.” He trains his eyes on mine, airing his vulnerabilities. “I didn’t see the point in trying to find the light again.”

 

“Do you see the point now?”

 

“I see you.” Jack’s brow furrows, jaw tensing. He’s fighting against his emotions, and I want him to lose. I want him to give in to me, even though I shouldn’t.
I can’t help it.
