Blog Tour: The Blue Unicorn's Journey to Osm by Sybrina Durant with Giveaway

Today’s stop is for Sybrina Durant's The Blue Unicorn's Journey to Osm . We will have info about the book and author,and a great giveaway. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaway.

Happy Reading :) 


The wood-cut look illustrations in The Blue Unicorn’s Journey To Osm Black and White Illustrated book are reminiscent of old world fairytales by authors like Lewis Carroll and The Brother’s Grimm. It is a story which transcends age and presents valuable life lessons on overcoming adversity through perseverance and valuing friendship.

Everybody loves unicorns! OK maybe they don't but for those who do, they will love this story about a little unicorn who was born into a tribe of magical, metal horned unicorns. The little guy has no magic and he has no metal but somehow he must save the tribe from an evil sorcerer. Read the book to find out if he can do it.

“The metal horned unicorns are doomed!” That’s what Lauda Lead Horn wailed when she first saw the tribe’s new savior. OK, so his horn was not metal. . .and he did not have a magic power. . .and he was really a puny little runt. But doomed? Were things really that bad?

Well, things were pretty bad in the land of MarBryn. Magh, an evil sorcerer utilized unicorn horns and hooves to create his magical potions and spells. Those he used, to increase his power and to conquer everyone in his path. All of the unicorns from the Tribe of the Metal Horn were now gone . . . except for twelve survivors.

Before the blue unicorn was born, Numen told Alumna, the aluminum-horned oracle, that he had a plan to bring the tribe back home to Unimaise. His prophecy was, “Only the blue unicorn can join with the Moon-Star. Until then, no new unicorns will be born.” Blue was the last unicorn born. Twenty years later, his horn was still covered with a plain blue colored hide. There was not a glint of metal to be seen on it or his hooves. And he still didn’t have any magic. But he was no longer scrawny and he had his wits. Though no one else in the tribe thought he had a chance, Blue felt ready to make Magh pay for his evil deeds. And he went off to do it alone. That was Blue’s first mistake. If the entire tribe was not standing horn-tip to horn-tip at the proper time and the exact place to help usher the Moon-Star Spirit into Blue’s horn, he would die. Then, the rest of the tribe would really be doomed.

Readers will follow along two journey paths in this book. Blue is joined in his travels by his mentor Gaiso, the Stag and his friend, Girasol the Firebird as they try to find their way across a danger-filled MarBryn to Muzika Woods. The rest of Blue’s tribe is forced to follow another route due to Nix Nickle Horn’s unfortunate incident with a Manticore. Nix, the great unicorn defender must safely lead the way for Ghel, the Golden-Horned unicorn; Silubhra Silver Horn; Cornum the Brass-Horned unicorn; Steel Horned Style; Cuprum the Copper-Horned unicorn; Tin-Horned Tinam; Dr. Zinko; Iown the Iron-Horned unicorn and the others in an action packed adventure to their destination in Muzika Woods. Both journey paths converge there in the Nebulium Circle.

Lightning Struck Heart
The Lightning-Struck Heart - T.J. Klune

Relisten was just as fabulous the second time. But my enjoyment and love will stop with this one book and not continue with the rest of the series. It is perfection just as it is and the HEA is strongly felt. <3

 

Original Review:

 

Here we go. First off, this book is…



and yes, since this audiobook ranks up there with Jim Dale’s narration of Harry Potter, I am going to proceed with using gifs from this amazing series as I continue to gush over the utterly talented TJ Klune. Not since JK Rowling's writing was paired with Dale's narration have I been transported into an book, like I was with this...thanks to Michael Lesley.



Bloody Brilliant!! This one landed in my top reads of 2015 and 2016…for a few reasons. First I thought I would finish it before the end of the year and secondly I fell in love with it almost immediately. As I said in my “Best of” selections for 2015…this is truly a match made in heaven between our dear TJ Klune and Michael Lesley. 

As for this story…



I love sass…



I love meddlesome characters with a heart…



I love awkwardness…



I love adorable best friends…



and ones that tell you like it is…



I love dragons…



and hilarious side kicks…



and even the assholes who kinda grow on you…



It’s wondrous…



And the love is fierce…



As for this review, yeah I told you nothing about this story, because I just can’t. There is absolutely no way to describe the brilliance that is this book and this narration. So do yourself a favor and just jump on board…you are in for one amazing ride and one you will want to revisit over and over again.



Thank you TJ, thank you! 



Now...I guess I will just sit and wait for more.

“Oh please,” Gary said. “How do you think I was created?”


3% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: Oh. My. God. Michael Lesley was made to read this book. Brilliant!

9% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “Make sure you don’t sneeze or fart tonight, okay? Your pants are so tight, I’m pretty sure they would rip. Wouldn’t want Knight Delicious Face to get a sample of the goods along with everyone else.” 
I groaned. “If you look close enough, you can see everything. It’s like I’m an advertisement for circumcision.”

15% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “I can’t help it if people want to get all up on this.” 
He rolled his eyes. “That must be it. They just can’t stay away from all of that.” His eyes traveled up and down my body. 
“So much sass,” I said in awe. “You’re like a sass master. You and Gary should have a sass-off to see who would be crowned Queen Sass. Fair warning: he would win. But you could be Princess Sass.”

Love these two. ❤️❤️

20% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: I was going to open a shop where anyone got to come in and hug puppies for free and leave with a balloon, ice cream, and a compliment. “Here’s your pistachio cream. I made you a balloon animal in the shape of a walrus. You have very nice knuckles.”

25% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “It’s not your magic I’m worried about,” Morgan said. “It’s your heart.”

32% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: It showed the true depths of my talent that I was able to multitask in such a way to be running from certain imprisonment while also fantasizing about Ryan saying things like “I’ve always wanted to try and do the splits. On your cock.”
*belts out laughter at work*

42% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: I had to stop myself from running my fingers through his hair. 
I knew now why Morgan had said he feared for my heart. 
I did too.

Sweet Sam. <3

46% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “We all do what we have to.” I patted his shoulder and moved around him. Every step I took hurt more than the one before it.

50% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “I just thought it was fascinating,” Ryan said. “People pairing us up like that. I wonder what that was about?” 
“I don’t know,” I said. We belong together! "Must be something they see that we don’t.” Put your dick in me! “Absolutely no idea.” All the ideas! I have all the ideas!

LMAO ❤️❤️❤️

60% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “I jerked off to the thought of you the day I first saw you,” I said, cringing immediately. Not cool! Not cool!

65% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: Ryan looked hot as fuck with his sword and shield and hair flying in the wind, and I’m pretty sure I was on my way to a full erection by that point because that shit was fucking erotic. 
“This feels like a sex dream,” I breathed. 
“This feels like a what?” Justin asked. 
“Uhhhh. Nothing. I didn’t say anything. Oh, look. Fascinating things are happening. Let’s focus on those.”

Oh Sam...

72% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “That’s going to be a bitch to pass later.”

74% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “I’ve seen many things. Both good and evil. Majestic and destructive. Stars falling from the sky and a man whose tattoos moved across his skin as if they were alive before he tried to rip one of my hearts from my chest. I have seen many, many things. But I have never seen one look at another the way the knight looks at you.”


85% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “You knew,” I said as I watched him go. “You saw him coming and knew how my magic would react.” 
“Yes,” Randall said simply. 
“It won’t be the same,” I admitted. “With anyone else.” 
He looked sad at that. “I know. But it will be enough.”



87% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: “There’s someone out there for you,” he said. “Someone who will love your hair and your words and your eyes and the way you still scrunch up your nose when you’re thinking hard on something. He will love you for all of the things that you are and all of the things you aren’t. He’ll love you beyond all reason and will be convinced that you hung the sun and moon. He will see the stars and wish for only you. Someone will love every single part of who you are, and my gods, I can’t wait for the day to meet him to tell him thank you.”
❤️❤️❤️❤️

98% done with The Lightning-Struck Heart: "Your smile didn’t make my balls tingle at all.”

I don't want this to end. *pouts*

Release Day Review! Planet Dragos (Elder Races #9.8) Thea Harrison!
Planet Dragos - Thea Harrison

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the final novella featuring Pia and Dragos…

Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.

From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.

But the Great Beast has other plans.

On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up….

 

 

 

Planet Dragos is a thrilling and fantastic send off to Dragos and Pia as some exciting events take place and brings about major changes to their world. 

 

As always the characters of the Elder Races universe are strong, bold and easily draw readers in and hold them hostage until the very end. In Planet Dragos, we meet up with Dragos, Pia and friends as well as meet some new characters, one of whom is Death which adds quite a bit of excitement and chilling anticipation to the story. There is never a dull moment in this fast paced story which full of thrills and suspense which keeps readers on the edge and since most of those events are life altering continuously builds a sense of nail-biting anticipation throughout the story as well. 

 

The Elder Races series is exciting and full of wonderful characters that constantly surprise readers and brings them lots of enjoyment and I have to say that Pia and Dragos favorites of readers everywhere including me, so I was quite thrilled with this book and I found it to be quite energetic and exhilarating from start to finish. And while I am disappointed about one of the decisions that Dragos and Pia made (sorry no spoilers), I am also looking forward to finding out what Thea Harrison has in store for us readers next.
