Shattered Souls
Shattered Souls - Mary Lindsey Quick reads are always my fav, when I have time to get them done in one sitting of course! Lenzi (a.k.a Rose) was a wonderful character. I simply adored this book!

Reading progress update: I've read 70 out of 228 pages.
Of Sand and Malice Made (Song of Shattered Sands) - Bradley P. Beaulieu

a strange tale--seems made of dream logic. whenever magic comes into it, it gets very surreal. powerful forces threatening the White Wolf, even when she was very young. the ehrekh creature is frightening.

Of Sand and Malice Made (Song of Shattered Sands) - Bradley P. Beaulieu

prequel to a Fantasy novel I read and loved a while ago--it was the first in a series, and I gave it 5 stars, so I have high hopes for this, and Book 2 when it finally does a softcover turn. gorgeous cover and interior illustrations!

Shattered / Kevin Hearne
Shattered - Kevin Hearne

Atticus’s apprentice Granuaile is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy.

And Owen has some catching up to do.

Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus’s chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury’s still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki—or merely a pain in the arse.

But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat.

As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they’re hoping that this time, three’s a charm.

 

***2017 Summer Lovin’ Reading List***

Best volume of this series so far!!!

I really liked the alternating chapters between Atticus, Granuaile, and Owen. This structure shows, better than any telling, that Atticus has severely underestimated both his partner Granuaile and his archdruid, Owen.

Granuaile gets to adventure on her own, while Atticus and Owen manage to get each other into trouble. Oberon and Orleith are fabulous hound sidekicks. Owen shows that he’s not just a cranky old coot, he’s still got good instincts, even if English isn’t the ideal language to express them in.
I’m getting a bit tired of the ‘dog-pile of gods on Atticus’ plot. Sure, he’s been annoying, but really has anything that he’s done warranted the amount of ill-will that is being expended on him? At least in this book we are back to dealing mostly with the Irish pantheon, which makes sense, but I am really tired of the Loki/Ragnarock plot line which keeps dragging along through so many books now. Says the woman who usually loves the Norse gods in fiction.

Owen steals the show, being completely unfamiliar with 21st century society and providing hilarious perspectives on it, while still showing that human nature hasn’t changed a bit! I used to read this series strictly for Oberon, but he has some competition now!

Shattered (Steel Brothers Saga) - Helen Hardt

Ruby had been a cop for eleven years and a couple months ago she became a detective.Ruby had run away from home as her father Theodore had tried to rape her so Ruby did not trust men and had been on her own since.  at fifteen years old   Ryan is the youngest of the Steel brothers he is a rancher and winemaker.

Ryan carries a lot of guilt  that he had escaped what Talon had endured.   Ruby had never taken a vacation, work was Ruby’s solace was work and kept her mind busy. Then Ruby was asked by Melanie to be her maid of honor.Melanie did not have any close family or friends but Melanie knew more about ruby than anyone in the world. Even though Ruby knew nothing about weddings.  Melanie is marrying Jonah in a double wedding with Ryan’s brothers. Ryan thinks he may get some answers from Ruby. Ruby is definitely attracted to Ryan but she isn’t looking for a relationship at least she wasn’t before she met Ryan.. Ryan also hadn’t been looking for a relationship but he started having feelings for Ruby. T+RYan and ruby got to know each other better during the wedding festivities. But Ruby felt Ryan could get anyone why would he want her especially with who her father is and what he had done. He was a monster as far as Ruby is concerned and he had deeply hurt the Steel family. As time goes by Ruby opens up and shows the real her not just the cop. The brothers think they all know who did it but are having a very hard time finding out for sure. Then RYan finds out some things his brothers and sister haven’t told him and he is terribly hurt.  Ryan gets a phone call from his mother yet she killed herself years ago didn’t she ?

This was a great book to read. I loved the plot and pace. This was very dark at times. But it captured you and kept you right until the end without letting go. It broke my heart at times and i choked up while reading this. This was very erotic but I felt it was tasteful. I loved the twists and turns I also loved the slow build romance. This was well written with mystery and intrigue. I loved everything about this but I hate cliffhangers and this ended in one. The cliffhanger is why this is a four and not a five rating. I also do love the characters and the twists and turns and i recommend. Also there is six books before this one and I recommend you read them in order so everything will come together for you.
