Review: The Guinevere Deception (Camelot Rising #1) by Kiersten White
The Guinevere Deception - Kiersten White

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes a new fantasy series reimagining the Arthurian legend, set in the magical world of Camelot.

There was nothing in the world as magical and terrifying as a girl.

Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger: the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom's borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution--send in Guinevere to be Arthur's wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king's idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere's real name--and her true identity--is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.

To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old--including Arthur's own family--demand things continue as they have been, and the new--those drawn by the dream of Camelot--fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land. Arthur's knights believe they are strong enough to face any threat, but Guinevere knows it will take more than swords to keep Camelot free.

Deadly jousts, duplicitous knights, and forbidden romances are nothing compared to the greatest threat of all: the girl with the long black hair, riding on horseback through the dark woods toward Arthur. Because when your whole existence is a lie, how can you trust even yourself?

I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

DNFed at 50%

I was super excited when I received this book from Netgalley, sadly this book was not for me. I normally really like her books and her retellings but this was just fell short for me. It just didn’t hold my interest at all and I finally DNFed it at around 50%. For one it just felt like the story or Guinevere, who by the way bot really Guinevere (not a spoiler it states it right in the beginning) ll over the place, we bounce around a lot in the story.  It also was a bit on the slow site and it felt like never ending.

I also had a hard time connecting with the characters, Arthur who was not there a lot but mentioned and talked about I liked but again it was hard for me to connect to him if he is hardly there. Guinevere seemed lost herself and all over the place with no real direction so I had a even harder time to connect to her.

Of course there were another people but most just were meh….. I had some thoughts about what is about to come and will be a plot twist so I asked a friend who read it all how it ends and such. But I was not surprised and basically everything I thought would happen did happen.

Overall, meh book for me. I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn’t get into it this time around. I’m sure there will be plenty of people who will love it.

I rate it 2 ā˜…

Iā€™m So Excited ā€“ The Rogue King by Abigail Owen @AOwenBooks
The Rogue King (Inferno Rising #1) - Abigail Owen

I have read several of Abigail Owens series and loved them, so when I got a chance to read The Rogue King, the first book in the Inferno Rising series, I had to have it!!!!

Happy Release Day to Abigail Owen and her Rogue King.

 

Her heroes are some kind of gorgeous. Just take a look at the cover for yourself.

MY REVIEW

 

She chose her moment to die…to save her children!

 

It is insta love, which in the dragon world is very acceptable, and Brand has an overwhelming need to help the woman covered in flames.

 

Kasia has seen him in her visions. She has been waiting for him. Everyone wants her…dragons, werewolves, vampires… for their own reasons, but no one will make her do something that isn’t right for her.

 

Brand is a rogue, unclaimed by any dragon clan.

 

Though the theme, dragons and paranormal romance is familiar, the Phoenix is rare and coveted…by me and other lovers of the supernatural world. Even though I know dragon meets girl, falls in love, braves many dangers and lives happy ever after, it’s the bits and pieces that an author like Abigail Owen adds that makes the story special.

 

The world building makes the scenery and action come to life. The characters are easy for me to remember, because the story engulfed me. At times the dialogue is humorous, helping alleviate the feeling of danger that hovers around the characters. Tons of action and never a dull moment.

 

I have read several of Abigail Owen’s series and look forward to each and every story she writes. As expected, she gave me a magical love story and new characters to love in her new Inferno Rising series. I have met two of Kasia’s sisters and I think I know who’s story may be next. I can hardly wait.

Book Review for DARKNESS RISING by Katie Reus
Darkness Rising (Darkness Series Book 9) Kindle Edition - Katie Reus

 

 

We have to say that this was our first book by this author and we really enjoy it by them and we loved getting to know all the character's as the were so interesting and fun.We loved Reaper from the onset and his cave man ways.After reading this story I really need to go back and start the story from the very beginning.
 
Reaper a Greer where amazing together and had amazing heat together and I am not talking about the, breathing fire kind.We loved their fun and flirty relationship.
 
I love reading about Dragon shifters and it was a whole lot of fun with great character's mystery and suspense and we loved that they had mates that where a different species as it just showed all the different personalities and alpha ways. 
 
Overall we loved it and we are sorry we didn't come upon this series sooner but, now that I have caught the bug we plan on reading the rest of the series.We thought it was an awesome read!
 
Recommended read to all!

Excellent Debut
The Dragon in the Garden (The Watcher Rising Series, #1) - Erika Gardner

I can't even begin to express just how much I enjoyed this book! While I don't read a lot of Epic Fantasy, I love Urban Fantasy and Mythology and this one has both in spades. There are a lot of characters to keep up with and it is a lengthy read with a lot going on, but it's such an engaging story that it all just worked. We have a group of three humans, a fallen angel, a Valkyrie, and a dragon set on saving the world. With a mix like that, things are bound to get crazy and they do with plenty of action as demons, a reaper, and even the fae enter the picture. There are some moments of sadness and yes, I cried along with our heroine, and there are also some fun sexy times. It's not graphic, but it is there. With everything going on in this tale, some of my favorite parts included the dialogue between the characters. It's all quite witty, but several times it is absolutely laugh out loud hilarious and timed quite well. The whole story is just so good and overall, this fantastical, romantic, hilarious, emotional, and even a bit creepy at times story is an excellent debut from Gardner.

Take the Storm by Rebecca Zanetti
Take The Storm - Rebecca Zanetti
I really enjoyed getting a look into Marisol's life and personality. Up until now, I have only been able to see her as the guardian and caregiver for her siblings, but in Take the Storm, we get to see who she is as a person. Unfortunately, that person has been locked away and only came up for breath a couple times. She so embedded in being the perfect parent figure, that she's forgotten about herself.
 
Patrick wants to see her come out of her shell and do something for herself, but his pushing and ultimatums may backfire. Marisol isn't a woman to take demands lightly. The rest of Storm, TX is chugging along with its usual drama. We see glimpses of other characters and Dakota takes an interesting turn in her views on her relationship with the Senator (not for the better). A good addition, with plenty to tease you for what's next.
