ARC REVIEW Past This Point by Nicole Mabry
Past This PointA pervasive outbreak of a new virus from the viewpoint of a civilian. Nicole Mabry captured the intensity, the paranoia, and the heartbreak perfectly. The main character Karis I felt really connected to, I don't know if it was just the similar heritage, or the fact we are the same age, or the fact that she kind of reminded me of my sister but I really felt like I was experiencing this with her from the initial stages of the outbreak and through the quarantine.

Karis' self imposed isolation from her friends after a bad break up and slight germaphobic ways is probably what saved her life. Karis uses life skills she learned as a child to stay alive, knowing how to cook from scratch and how to cook acorns so they are edible to the self defense classes her father made her take, she was even wary enough to stockpile her dogs food when the virus kept most of her coworkers home. Karis tried getting a flight out of NY after the CDC cleared her but she wouldn't, couldn't leave her dog behind. She made friends with two little girls across the courtyard and fought off the madness of the isolation and quiet the was once NYC and then she met Ollie. Oliver "Ollie" is a British citizen who arrived two weeks before the quarantine got stuck in NYC. Karis who saved his life but still unsure if she could trust him, it seemed like this virus and quarantine brought out the worst in people.

Overall, this book was outstanding. Karis is intelligent, strong, and intuitive and a great main character. Julia and Emma the little girls across the courtyard were adorable and Julia was wise beyond her years. Zeke, the dog, a great companion and a sympathetic ear. Ollie is exactly what Karis needed, at first you're unsure of him but he does earn Karis' trust and her love he kept her sane and hopeful. I loved this book it was emotional and heart-poundingly thrilling. This is in my top three for apocalyptic genre along with Z for Zachariah and The Wolf Road.

Review: Council of Souls (Fated Eternals #1) by Jen Printy
Council of Souls - Jen Printy

 

 

After surviving the perils of an ancient family feud, Jack Hammond and Leah Winters believe only happiness lies ahead. However, their future isn’t as secure as they think. When Death and his council arrive to welcome Leah into their treacherous shadow world, the couple discovers that Leah’s immortality has come with a high price.

With Artagan’s help, Leah slowly learns how to navigate the dark waters of the Concilium Animarum—the Council of Souls. As their world starts to unravel further, their love is all Jack and Leah have left. Will that be enough?

4.5 ★

 

I liked this book a lot better than book one…. It had a lot of growth from the characters to the story.

We pick up shortly after where the last book ended and see how Leah handles her immortality. Just when they think all is set and done and they can live in peace things get messy.

I really enjoyed the pace of this book it was not too fast, nor too slow.

I really thought I knew where this was going but there were a few surprises along the way and we get thrown for a loop, which I really loved .

I really enjoyed that Jack and Leah not only grew themselves but with the story.

I found both Jack and Leah a bit annoying last book, while I was still not a big fan of them I liked them better this book, that it I just got used to them. While I liked them individually better, I didn’t really care for them together. It was all a bit much and maybe seemed a bit too pushed overall and Jack sometimes came over more of an immature brat than jealous.

Artagan was still my favorite but we also mee t some pretty cool new people.

Overall I really enjoyed more than last book and thought it was a interesting book that kept me captivated to the last page.

I rate it 4.5 ★

Review: My Soul Immortal (Fated Eternals #1) by Jen Printy
My Soul Immortal - Jen Printy

 

An endless love, for an endless price.

Jack’s immortality is exposed when he prevents a liquor store heist, forcing him to flee to protect his secret—a secret not even he understands. But when he meets Leah Winters—a mirror image of his decades-lost love, Lydia—his very soul is laid bare. He begins to question his sanity. Is she real, and if so, what does that mean for Jack and his secret?

Jack’s not the only mystery man in town. A stranger named Artagan hints at knowledge Jack is desperate to possess. But can he trust Artagan, or does the dark newcomer harbor deadly secrets of his own?

As Jack’s bond with Leah grows, so does the danger to her life. Jack must discover just how much he is willing to risk in order to save the woman he already lost once.

3.5★

 

I enjoyed this book.  I wasn’t sure in the beginning I would. It started out a bit slow and the back and forth was a bit much in the beginning. But I really ended up enjoying it and had a hard time putting the book down. The Mystery to what Jack is kept me glued to the page… the same with Leah…. It was clear early on that there is something more to her, but not what.

The book really picks up after the first 30 pages and the pace increases to a steady and enjoyable pace.  I also really liked the concept of the story and liked that we learn along with Jack what was going on.

Some of the things happening were a bit too convenient for me to fit in the story but it really didn’t bother me all too much. The beginning also reminded me a bit f the Vampire Diaries (TV show) in the beginning with the whole doppelganger theme. But again not too much and it had enough of its own content to not bother me too much and be new and fresh.

Neither Jack, nor Leah were my favorite both had a semi annoying site to them, but overall I enjoyed them. Another thing that bothered me a bit was Grady and his flip-flopping attitude towards Jack. It just didn’t feel right and a bit forced like just to be there for the drama.

I absolutely loved Ed and his shop. But by far my favorite was Artagan and I really wanted more of him and I have high hope for that in the next book.

Overall I enjoyed it and ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would and after the cliffhanger I’m curious to see what happens next.

 

I rate it 3.5★

Review: Touch of Smoke by Karissa Laurel
Touch of Smoke - Karissa Laurel

 

Three years ago, Rikki Albemarle watched her best friend die at the hands of a supernatural evil. Certain she was slated to be the next victim, Rikki fled her small Smoky Mountain hometown, vowing to never come back. Plagued by nightmares and knowing she's the only one who believes Mina's death was no accident, Rikki returns with hopes of finding answers and holding the killer accountable.

 

Rikki is convinced the key to unlocking the secret of Mina's death lies with Owen Amir, the alluring young army vet who once claimed her heart. But the deeper Rikki digs into Owen's past, the more she's torn between the urgings of her heart and her memories of him on the night Mina died.

 

After falling further into the rabbit hole, Rikki lands at the feet of an ancient and powerful evil determined to finish what it started years before. To survive, she'll have to make a decision: believe Owen is the monster she always feared he might be or trust him enough to stay and fight for a second chance at love

This book from start to finish was absolutely brilliant, I loved every minute of it.

I loved everything about this book, the story, the characters, the writing. The book had everything I personally like in a book, action, lots of humor and snark, the right amount of romance, great supporting characters and plot twists.

About half or more of the book we get dual timelines. Present time and three years ago. I liked the dual timelines, it keeps you on the edge of you seat and guessing of what really happened that day.

I really liked both main characters, both had their strengths but also weaknesses. I liked that they balanced each other out a great deal.

Most know, I’m not a fan of insta-love or lust unless done right and that was the case here. Anything else would have been weird in this case. Also like that Rikki stayed her own person and not just throws everything out the window for a guy. The same goes for Owen though, he sticks to his plans no matter what happens or happened.

We get a pretty good twist at the end I LOVED it. I also really loved the ending it was perfect and I must admit I was a bit worried but well done Karissa Laurel.

I mentioned that I loved the supporting cast and I can’t leave this review without saying that I absolutely adored Luke. So much so, that I hope we get to see him again somehow, sometime in the future.

Overall great, great book and I give it 5★ and hoping for a Luke book. #givemeLuke
