Taran Wanderer: The Chronicles of Prydain Book Four
Taran Wanderer - Lloyd Alexander

This fourth volume of The Chronicles of Prydain begins with a restless Taran asking his guardian and foster father, Dallben, who his parents were. As the man says, he does not know, Taran begs leave to depart and find out. His faithful companion, Gurgi, accompanies, even though the news they will travel first to a marshland and visit three enchantresses does not sit well with him at all. But Taran hopes they can give him the information he so earnestly seeks.


The young man begins to regret his decision before they even arrive, but he does not turn back. Once the three women demand a price paid for their information about his parents, Taran says he already gave them the thing he most valued in exchange for the Black Cauldron. This time he promises to give whatever he will come to value the highest in the future for them to claim whenever they chose. Fortunately, they refuse, but they offer another source which may hold the secret to his identity.


During this latest and most personal of Taran's quests, he encounters old and new friends, new enemies and perils just as terrible as any he already experienced. But his wisdom grows in equal measure.


What a powerful book! The best one so far in this series - still one to go! I love Taran and the growth he has. My favorite quote is from Hevydd, the blacksmith: "Life's a forge, say I! Face the pounding; don't fear the proving; and you'll stand well against any hammer and anvil!"

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Wanderer (The Sin Bin #1) by Dahlia Donovan
The Wanderer - Claire Smith,Hot Tree Editing,Dahlia Donovan
The Wanderer is a story that returns to Cornwall, where we reunite with Francis and Craddock from After The Scrum. In this story, Graham, a travel writer and someone with itchy feet, meets up with one of Craddock's rugby buddies, BC, at Francis and Craddock's wedding. Things are immediately hot and 'spicy' between them, but Graham isn't prepared to settle down, so quickly does a runner, as per his usual modus operandi. The book takes a more serious turn though when Graham becomes ill whilst abroad. Tests that BC and the rest of Graham's friends and family insist on show that he has stomach cancer. 

This story doesn't doesn't pull any punches. It is not glamorous, nor is there any 'softening' of cancer and the effects that both it, and the healing process and medicines, have upon a body. Dahlia Donovan also gives great detail on how the family and friends are affected. Although a strong, serious, read, The Wanderer also manages to be full of laughter as the two main clowns constantly banter with each other.

Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, I would definitely recommend this book, although I am aware that it might not be everyone's 'cup of tea' due to the subject matter.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

How many roads must Taran wander down before . . .
Taran Wanderer (The Chronicles of Prydain, Book 4) - Lloyd Alexander,James Langton

The one question that's plagued Taran all his life is just who is he? Who is his family? Is there any chance at all that his family is some sort of nobility? This last question has taken on a new level of importance to him as he has realized that he's in love with a princess and can't do anything about it without that nobility.


Dallben can't answer the question for him -- but he allows Taran leave to go try to find the answer himself. I've never understood just how Taran can pull this off -- there's practically no birth records in Prydain (I can't imagine), it's not like he can get blood tests done -- and he doesn't really interview anyone, just meanders around.


Still, he visits various corners of the kingdom -- visiting friends old and new, dipping his toe in all sorts of trades and vocations. He renders aid, and gets aid. Fflewddur Fflam shows up and spends a good portion of the novel traveling with him (Gurgi remains a constant companion). There's a confrontation with a wizard, a regional armed conflict to try to settle, a mercenary band to deal with -- as well as other woes.


He learns a lot, he matures a lot, and maybe even gets a dose of wisdom. It's not your traditional fantasy novel by any sense, but it's a good one.


As for the audiobook? Everything I've said about the other books in the series -- Alexander's introduction and Langton's performance -- holds true for this one.


The most emotionally rich of the books, the most thoughtful -- particularly for those of the target age. Good, good stuff.

Book Review for Wanderer by Janine Infante Bosco and her Nomad Series

The Nomad Series 
by Janine Infante Bosco
Reviewed by: Angels
Published: Infante Bosco andAmazon Digital
Source: ARC
Genre:  MC Romance,Romance,Erotica,
Bad Boys

I’ve lived two lives.
One full of innocence and one full of sin.
I mourned the perfect life I was born into and made it my duty to chase the phantom who stole it from me.
Revenge, mayhem and loss are all I know.
I am the lone man—I am the wanderer.
The former nomad—now, Satan’s deadliest soldier.
The two worlds were never supposed to collide. Innocence and sin aren’t made to coexist yet somehow my past bleeds into the present and I find myself facing my biggest regret…I find myself face to face with her—the girl who got away.
The girl I let go.
The woman I’ll ruin if I stay.

Our young love was marred by violence.
Our guilt destroyed us, fate tempted us but, it was he who broke us.
They say time heals all, but all time did was dull the ache of his abandonment.
Now, dressed in leather, covered in ink the boy I mourned is now a man—a man tormented by his demons.
In another life we were everything to one another.
In this life we’re strangers.

Let me start off by staying that this is a new author to us and we thoroughly enjoyed reading our first book by her.I recently discover MC romance and we are definitely loving it so far .We will be adding this author to our to be read series for sure.We loved Wanderer and we are looking forward to reading Drifter Stryker's story.
I really loved these two main characters they were a lot of fun to read about.I loved this couple Cobra and Celeste and how they had a past together.I loved that these High School sweethearts got a second chance at romance and a chance for a happy ever after.
I always pick a favorite character in my current read and mine is going to Cobra.He just touched my heart as he had experienced so much heartache is his life that I only wanted something good to come his way for a change.My heart broke for him as I could not imagine losing a sibling let alone your twin sister. Then losing your parents within a small amount of time.I loved how he was withdrawn and dark and then tenderly sweet.I enjoyed his interactions with his friends and MC brothers and how supportive they were in his vengeance to bring his sisters killer to justice.I loved how he was toward Celeste always in protective mode.I loved how her carried a torch for her all those years they were apart . Cobra never stopped loving his soul mate even when they were apart.I thought that this was his most endearing quality he had.My heart bleed for him for the pain it brought him to do the right thing by her always pushing her away just to keep her safe.I loved the chemistry this couple had it was explosive right from the beginning pages.Celeste and Cobra's sexual encounters were intoxicating and super hot!I enjoyed seeing the bad boy and the dangerous side of him but he melted my heart every time he just looked at his women and his daughter.
My favorite scene is with him and Celeste when they are waiting to see if their pregnant or not.These two were so cute together with their banter back and forth waiting that they made me smile.I found myself smiling quite a bit throughout this story.
Celeste on the other hand I found to be a bit of a fire cracker.I loved her sense of humor and how protective she was about those she cared about.I loved how she fought back and stood up to Cobra even when he was being an a** she never took any of his crap.This gal definitely held her own.These situations had me chuckling as these scenes played out.I loved how she mourned her lost love Cobra all their years apart.Celeste never stop loving him even when they were apart.I loved how she interacted and  how protective she was toward her daughter Skylar.I admired her character she was a strong and independent women.I admired the choices she made regrading Cobra even after all the heart ache he caused her with all their years apart.
This story was a page turner for me from beginning to end with lots of little twists and turns.It had love ,romance,vengeance , secrets coming to light ,second chances,pain and suffering and the MC life element all the things that make for a exciting read.I loved it.I enjoyed getting to know each and every character and their different personalities.I loved how I was able to connect with these characters and relate to them.I loved being on Celeste and Cobra rediscovery and that was once lost was still worth fighting for.I loved how their love stood the test of time.They were such a cute couple that had some amazing sex that added that bit of erotica to the story to cause a girl to get heated a just a bit. (lol)Looking forward to reading the stories to come and getting to know the rest of these MC brothers of Cobra's.A recommended read to all romance lovers.
This was an ARC given to us by the author for and honest review and were a giving it 5 stars.It was and amazing read we loved it!
P.S Would also have to point out that this story has one hot book cover and we love it!
