2 Reviews! Vixen's Fate Mate & Cupid's Fated Mate (Arctic Shifters #4 & 5) R.E. Butler!

 

 

Mire, the Vixen position on the sleigh team, has watched three of his friends and fellow shifters find their fated mates. He holds out hope that he’ll find his fated mate soon, but since he’s able to leave North Pole City for only twenty-four hours every year, he’s not sure when he’ll meet his one and only. When a non-quad shifter survives a near-fatal accident two days before Christmas Eve, they discover he had an affair with a human woman and had a child with her. Mire is tasked with bringing the daughter to NPC to meet with Santa Claus. What Mire doesn’t count on is that she’s his fated mate.

 

Noelle Jackson has known her whole life that she wasn’t entirely normal. Born with pointed ears, that her mother had altered with plastic surgery, she’s always felt out of place. When a dark-haired, gorgeous man shows up at her apartment and tells her that he can take her to visit her injured father, she jumps at the chance. She feels connected to the mysterious Mire, whose eyes flash from brown to gold whenever he looks at her.

 

When Noelle is magically whisked away to the North Pole, she feels right at home for the first time in her life. In a place where the magic is real, can Santa Claus grant Noelle and Mire their Christmas wish to spend the rest of their lives together, or will her father’s deceit mean NPC is closed to her forever?

 

 

Mire is hoping that he will find his fated mate soon but the last thing expected to find when Santa tasked him with bringing the daughter of a non-quad shifter in to NPC is that Noelle is his fated mate.

 

This fast paced and delightful story grabs readers by their hair and refuses to let go as thrilling suspense holds them captive throughout. Due to the circumstances surrounding Noelle and her father, there is a chance that NPC could be closed to Noelle forever and readers find themselves holding their breath to discover whether these captivating characters will get their Christmas wish or not.

Roi, an arctic shifter who calls North Pole City home, has watched four of his friends find their fated mates in the human world. He wants nothing more than to join them…to find the one woman on the planet meant for him, so that they can start their life together.

 

When the father of one of the fated mate’s falls ill before Christmas Eve, Santa Claus is unable to send her home to visit because his magic isn’t powerful enough. When he calls his old friend Sandman for help, Sandman’s daughter comes instead. Dreama, who is as powerful as her father, agrees to take the fated mate and her shifter home. When Santa sends Roi along as a guard, sparks fly between Dreama and him.

 

Dreama’s never met anyone like Roi, the sexy shifter who can change into four different animals. She wants to spend the rest of her life with him, but can a woman who walks in other people’s dreams get her own happily ever after? Or will an ancient law prevent her from staying in NPC? Only Santa knows if her dream will come true.

 


Roi wants to join his friends in mated bliss but when he finds her, an ancient law may prevent Dreama from remaining in NPC. Readers can’t help but become caught up in all the suspense surrounding Roi and Dreama as they try to discover a way to be together and Roi remain in NPC. The characters are strong, vivid and easily pull readers into their story while the suspense builds and keeps readers on their edge of their seats. This delightfully spirited holiday tale introduces fascinating characters and elements to the series that just makes even more charming and attractive. The stories in this series never fail to put readers in to the moon for Christmas cheer and this story ensures that they want more.

Possible Halloween Bingo read
The Sandman's Eyes - Patricia Windsor

I'm doing this massive work project to add subject headings to records that don't have any, concentrating on our children's and young adult stuff (1,315 to go!), since the most knowledgeable staff member in that area is planning on retiring in a year.

 

As a result, I keep stumbling across things that look interesting. This might become one of my Halloween Bingo reads - a book about an 17 or 18-year-old who was sent to a mental institution ("school for disturbed juveniles"?) after a girl's murder. It sounds like most of his small town believes he committed the murder, and only his grandfather believes him when he says he witnessed it.

 

The 1985 Kirkus review for this says the ending is melodramatic, but I feel like a lot of 1980s and 1990s YA thrillers and mysteries had at least a little melodrama. Look at Killing Mr. Griffin (okay, it was published in 1978), which ended with a maniacal villain attempting to burn the heroine alive in her own home. And, like, all of Christopher Pike's earlier works. (Now I kind of wish I had another Christopher Pike book on hand. I don't know that an ILL request would get me one fast enough to read it before the end of Halloween Bingo, though.)

The Sandman
The Sandman: The Story of Sanderson Mansnoozie - William Joyce

This is the story of how the Sandman came to be. The man in the moon tasked the sandman with giving children good dreams. This story follows the Sandman has he carries out this task and encounters the nightmare king. The Sandman fights back after some new friends help him get better after his battle with the nightmare king. Sandy comes out victorious, and continues to give children good dreams to this day.

 

This book would be a great tool to introduce the basic elements of plot. Students could organize the plot based on the plot elements. Students could also do a writing activity about dreams.

 

AR Level 4.6

The Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1, Neil Gaiman
The Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1 - Neil Gaiman,John Costanza,Steve Oliff,Malcolm Jones III,Sam Kieth,Steve Parkhouse,Daniel Vozzo,Kelley Jones,Todd Klein,Chris Bachalo,Mike Dringenberg,Michael Zulli,Colleen Doran,Charles Vess

How good was Sandman, really? I asked myself. After all I was in my late teens and it was a long time ago. Also probably the first comic for adults I  ever read. Should I take a risk on those gigantic anthologies, The Absolute Sandman or a lesser commitment on the comparatively tiddly first paperback collection, Preludes and Nocturnes? How much of it did I actually read back then? There was Death and a Cereal Convention and a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream but there was definitely much more I had not read.

 

OK - let's play with house money and get The Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1 for my birthday.

 

Good choice! Because this book is utterly gorgeous simply as a physical object and the art is scaled up from the 8 issue paperback collections. (Also re-coloured, whatever that means for quality - ask a person who knows about comics.) There's also a pile of ancillary material collected at the back, some of which isn't available elsewhere. It's also, for the most part, even better than I remembered!

 

Both Gaiman and who-ever wrote the introduction feel that these comics really found their proper voice with the first appearance of the character Death in issue 8. I agree. This marks the end of the first story arc, involving many aspects of and characters from the wider DC universe and the start of a more isolated but deeper exploration of Gaiman's vision of The Endless and how they relate to life across the universe and time as well as humanity specifically. The Endless are seven "anthropomorphic personifications" that don't seem to always be anthropomorphic at all, since they exist for all types of life - as evidenced by fairies, aliens and cats. They are: Dream, Death, Delerium, Desire, Destiny, Despair...and the other one that I never remember but presumably has a name beginning with "D" in English. They're an interesting bunch.

 

These stories already show Gaiman's in-depth knowledge of world mythology and penchant for literary references, only the most obvious of which did I get back in the day. I noticed many more this time round. Makes me wonder if there are more I still missed...

 

Anyway, to sum up...book gorgeous. Art gorgeous. Stories great. And addictive. Bring me Vol. 2.

Dream of a Thousand Cats: didn't recall this one; very good though. (I'm a sucker for cat stories and this is a good 'un!)

 

A Midsummer Night's Dream next; I remember that this one exists but nothing of what actually happens.
