My Review of A Tide of Shadows by Tom Bielawski
A Tide of Shadows (The Chronicles of Llars) (Volume 1) - Tom Bielawski

A Tide of Shadows by Tom Bielawski is the first book in the Chronicles of Llars series. Carym of Hyrum finds he has powers that he didn't know he had, and embarks on a journey with his friend, Zach.

 

A Tide of Shadows has the good vs evil trope, which I love, but for some reason I just couldn't get into this story. There were many details given, but not the details I wanted.

 

These details may be included in future books, however, I didn't care for the flow of the story enough to read future books. With that being said, I felt it a decent enough read for passing the time.

 

Purchased on Amazon.

Let down
Beyond the Shadows - Brent Weeks

I enjoyed the first two books but the ending of this book was a bit meh to say the most. I know Brent is a new author and hopefully his next series finish with a bang rather than this.

Book #864 - 347,728 Pages Read
Shadows of Treachery[WARHAMMER HORUS HERESY SHADOWS][Mass Market Paperback] - ChristianDunn

Another anthology of WH40K stories related to the Horus Heresy. Took a while on this one as I put it down several times to work on other novels, but still enjoyed the stories when I got to them.

End of Year Book Goals!
A Court of Wings and Ruin - Sarah J. Maas
Lord of Shadows - Cassandra Clare
My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories - Rainbow Rowell,Holly Black,Laini Taylor,Myra McEntire,Kiersten White,Stephanie Perkins,Gayle Forman,Matt de la Pena,Jenny Han,Ally Carter,Kelly Link,David Levithan
Emotions - Arnie Cantarero,Arnie Cantarero,Kiyomi Sakamoto

2018 is just around the corner and I have some bookish goals I want to tick off the list before 2017 is finished! 

 

1. Restart my Blog! Done! I've been wanting to do this one for a while but my hectic schedule hadn't allowed me to. I'm glad going into 2018 that I will have an active blog once again! 

 

2. Finish Emotions #2 Done! Earlier this year Arnie Canterero sent me a paperback copy of his sci-fi novel, Emotions to read and review. I LOVED it! And graciously, he also sent me the second book - which hasn't been released yet. I LOVED it as well! I finish the sequel last night! 

 

3. Finish ACOWAR To be completed...I started this book months ago when I finished ACOMAF. Nothing is wrong with the book, it was amazing, I was just so busy that I could never find the time to read a 699 page book. But I've got nothing but time now so I'm so excited to finally finish this book (and series?). 

 

4. Finish Lord of Shadows To be completed...The last time I read a page from this novel was five months ago. What's wrong with me? I don't know. Since I've been caught up I've ready every Cassandra Clare book within the first week is has been released (er...let's not talk about the Bane Chronicles). But, when LOD came out I was busy I believe finals were around the corner for me. And then...I'm not sure what happened. I just never read it. I love Shadowhunters, I love Jules and Emma, I love Carstairs, I just couldn't finish reading. Somehow, I haven't been spoiled completely. So, before the end of 2017 I am forcing myself to finish this book. 

 

5. Reread My True Love Gave to Me To be completed...I read this book when it came out two(?) years ago and loved it. In fact, if you scroll back through my posts I did a review of it. It's the perfect holiday novel so I would love to reread it, or at least reread the stories I enjoyed the most. 

 

 

Aaaaaand that's it! What goals do you have for the end of the year? Let me know below in the comments and good luck!

Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness #4) by Amanda J. Greene
Caressed by Shadows - Amanda J. Greene
Caressed by Shadows is the fourth book in the series, and one I was looking forward to. Falcon and Sonya just had to get together! There was just a couple of issues - they were breaking the law if they did, which could result in Falcon's death; Sonya is suffering the throes of the Death Curse; Falcon has such a high sense of honour it threatens to strangle him at every turn. Still, with Silvie's help, there may just be hope for these two.
 
I would recommend that you read this series in order to get the full enjoyment out of the characters and the situations. With each story, you learn more about the world in which they live, and how they became the vampires they are. Sonya is a warrior queen throughout, and makes no pains to hide it. Accept her as she is, or not, she doesn't really care either way. She is a great character that constantly livens things up. Falcon is a good boy in public, and a bad boy in private, so you get the best of both worlds. Their story has been building up over the past couple of centuries, so no insta-love here.
 
Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the thing that lets it down is the editing. There are constant errors throughout which I'm afraid did jolt me out of the story. There was one scene with Gabriel and Gannon where, at best, half a sentence was completely missing. At worst, it could be more. I love this series, but the editing is a problem.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *
