5 Star Threads of Destiny
Threads of Destiny (Tapestries #4) - N.J. Walters

 

Marc Garen couldn’t have been happier when the magical tapestry brought his loving bride into his life but their buoyant happiness is a stark reminder of the loneliness that haunts his soul. To save the lives of two men who were part of a scientific experiment, Kathryn Piedmont has put her own life at risk and she’s convinced that their fate is sealed.

 

The magical tapestry is once again uniting brides with their mates but this time things are quite different in this fantastical and thrilling time travel romance. The characters are strong, vivid and full of passion which makes it easy for readers to become completely caught up in their emotionally gripping experience. The chemistry between Kathryn and the three men is electrical and has sparks flying everywhere but the sparks between Marc and Kathryn is even more so and the story reflects the realism and emotional angst at having to make choices that affect your life permanently.

 

The plot is fast paced and the story is on the short side but this story has some unique differences from the previous books and also provides more of the legend behind the tapestry and its magic and readers can’t help but enjoy the experience of reading this sinfully delicious and delightful romance.

Go for it!
Accidental Sorceress - Dana Marton

Second in this series.  A strange brew of bravery, magic and romance. There is heartbreak, darkness and light in this story. I will admit, I could not see how this could end well, but it ended on a light note, just waiting for the last chapter. Worth the time spent.

The Malloreon, Vol. 2: Sorceress of Darshiva, The Seeress of Kell - David Eddings



(Original review, 2005)



"Urgit, High King of Othol Murgos, sat on his garish throne in the Drojim Palace of Rak Urga"


In "Sourceress of Darshiva" by David Eddings


"Urgit, High King of Othol Murgos, was wearing a blue doublet and hose, and he sat up on his garish throne in the Drojim Palace."

In "Seeress of Kell" by David Eddings


Uhm...something is afoot here...Is it possible Eddings is copying himself...?

Justice Calling (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress #1) by Annie Bellet
Justice Calling (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress Book 1) - Annie Bellet
Jade Crow has been on the run for quite some time but she's finally found peace in Wylde, Idaho. The supernatural community is attracted to Wylde because of the ley lines and the town is actually home to a plethora of magical creatures, though shifters seem to make up the majority of the population. Jade has built a fine life for herself, including friends and her own business.  Everything comes to a halt however when a Justice ( the shifters version of judge, jury and executioner) arrives in town, certain that Jade has committed some terrible crime. 
 
Because the Justice is able to read the truth of someone's answers, Jade is quickly let off the hook. Trouble however still finds Jade when a resident is found frozen in their animal form. Jade must now decide whether to help the sexy Russian Justice who just happens to turn into the biggest tiger ever and her friends, or flee before her abusive ex boyfriend shows up and makes a snack of her to gain her power. 
 
Justice Calling shouldn't really be called a book because at best it's a novella. It gives us a peak at the world and the rather large cast of characters, without really giving us a chance to know any of them in depth. Even Jade Crow, who is the protagonist is pretty much a mystery. All we learn about Jade is that she is a sorcerer, is on the run from an abusive ex and is a total geek. It really feels like Bellet was going through a check list when she was creating these characters.  There are LGBT characters, and Crow it seems is a protagonist of colour. Part of the reason why it felt like a check list is because there's no real characterisation to flesh them out, let alone cultural references that situate them properly. Bellet seemed more concerned with geek bonafides because she filled the book with gaming, movie and pop culture references that would have the geeks grinning with glee, even though they didn't really serve well in terms of character development. 
 
There's really not much tension in Justice Calling and I am going to crack this up to the fact that it's a novella masquerading as a book.  There are no twists and turns to speak of. Even the antagonist is so basic that it's hard to give him that label.  There's a budding romance between Jade and Justice but it's so paint by numbers that it's not even remotely interesting and there's no real reason to invest in this relationship.  We don't know much about Justice but I really didn't like the way he accused Jade of not having a life because she was thinking about leaving. It's clear that we are meant to see Jade as an abused woman and having a safe space from a known abuser is not cowardice or even selfishness as I feel that Justice implied but a matter of life and death.

A Sorceress of His Own (The Gifted Ones Book 1)
A Sorceress of His Own (The Gifted Ones Book 1) - Dianne Duvall The moment I read the date on the first page, I sighed and was disappointed. I don't like historicals, they're just so blech, but this was recommended to me, so I forged on. I can't believe it, somehow this weird historical, romance, fantasy tale kept me entrenched. I read the book in one evening, only putting it down once to grab something to drink but couldn't wait to get back to it. Seriously, was this me? It was a 5 star book throughout until the very end, it wrapped up way to quickly, and easily and the HEA was explained away. I HATE THAT! They literally fought their way through everything and then the ultimate ending gets explained away. Yuck! They could've have arrived at the same ending and had a chapter, hell a paragraph, devoted to discovering the truth (it wouldn't have been difficult either ie. mom arrives to heal her and runs into daddy dearest,) but nope, there were just a few lines of verbal diarrhea. It was a terrible ending to an otherwise fantastic book.
