DAWN by Erin Hunter
Dawn - Erin Hunter

Twolegs have been destroying the Clans' homes and they must leave.  Following the five young cats who have returned with Midnight's message they leave and head towards the mountains to find a new home.

 

There is a lot of action and adventure as the Clans unite to fight the Twolegs and to save some of the Clans.  There is the infighting as the Clans must decide to leave or stay.  Firestar will not leave without all the Clans going together.  Pride gets in some of the Clans' way.  I shed many a tear as the Twolegs are capturing the cats; we are losing some of the older and younger ones; and as we remember those who have gone to the StarClan.  Cloudpaw's warrior ceremony wiped me out.

 

I cannot wait to see what happens in their travels.

Review! Hunt the Darkness (Order of the Blade #11) Stephanie Rowe!
Hunt the Darkness - Stephanie Rowe

 

 

One warrior driven by an oath he will give his life to fulfill.

Another tormented by his love for the woman he failed.

Haunted by loss, each warrior is consumed by his relentless quest for redemption. Alone, each will fail. But when Calydon warrior Gabe Watson and mage Vladimir Hawkings team up to cross over into the demon realm to hunt down those who matter most, they finally have a chance to change the past …until they encounter two bold, sensual women who hold the key to everything that matters to them…brave, independent women who want nothing to do with them. 

Sophie Flanagan has no memory of her life before she was kidnapped by demons, including how she got the wedding band that burns on her hand. Only her unbreakable friendship with half-demon healer, Maria Souvaine, has enabled her to survive. The two women are caught a desperate battle against a threat so powerful it will destroy them forever.

When two fierce, towering warriors invade the demon realm, Sophie and Maria are thrust into a chaotic spiral of lust, escalating peril, and…for the first time in centuries…hope. Will the passion and danger that ignites cause the final destruction of all that matters…or finally free them all from the deadly shadows that grip them so tightly?

 

 

Hunt the Darkness is an exciting read that keeps readers glued to the pages as they become caught up in an adventure with very strong and compelling characters. Vladimir and is way overdue for their happily ever after and readers join with Vladimir in his quest to find his Sophie who disappeared into the demon realm centuries before. This romance has lots of emotional turbulence that tugs at reader’s hearts and Vladimir and Sophie are two characters that readers can easily connect to which it makes me want to cheer them on, fight alongside them and cry with and for them as well.

 

Anticipation and suspense builds throughout the story with every exciting twist and turn which let me tell you, there are plenty because Sophie’s life becomes extremely dangerous for her and Vladimir finds himself teaming up with the Calydon Warrior Gabe Watson who finds himself falling for Sophie’s best friend Maria whose building romance has its own complications and lucky for us readers we get two romances in one that are both filled to the max with sizzling attraction and some red hot passion that heats up the pages and made me have to turn on the fans.

 

Stephanie Rowe has created a fascinating world that is full of unique and intriguing elements as well fascinating characters which she brings to vibrant life with well written words that make it easy for readers to picture each and every scene and connect with the characters. Luckily for me, the books can be read without having read all the previous books in the series because it seems I have missed a few (I will have to take care of that asap), but don’t get me wrong, just because it can be enjoyed that way, I do believe that reading the previous books would really build up the understanding of just how the Calydon world works.

Unforgivable Lover (Warriors of Lemuria #5) by Rosalie Redd
Unforgivable Lover (Warriors of Lemuria Book 5) - Rosalie Redd
Unforgivable Lover is the last book in the Warriors of Lemuria series, and in this one we get Gaetan's story. He has been a prominent character throughout this series, and I have been waiting with bated breath for his story to come out. I wasn't disappointed! Although Gaetan is incredibly hard on himself and doesn't see his own redeeming features, he is quick to help others. In this case, Nikki. He may blame himself for getting her mixed up in the whole situation, but he doesn't shirk from helping her adjust either.
 
This is an incredibly fast-paced book. As it is the final one, there are a lot of loose ends that need tying up. It is for this reason that I am only giving this one four-stars. In the general 'tidy-up', I felt as though part of Gaetan's story was lost within the maelstrom of the rest. It was pretty much instantaneous for him and Nikki, and I would have liked more from both of them. On the whole, this was an excellent way to finish the series. I was dismayed, fatalistic, overjoyed, and fearful whilst reading this book. It certainly engaged my emotions, which is all I want from a book. Just the one niggle for me.
 
As I would expect from a Rosalie Redd story, there were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The characters continue to delight, whether you like them or not. The pace is face, the transitions from one scene to the next are very smooth. I have no hesitation in recommending the series, or this book.
 
* 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. *

Originally published at midureads.wordpress.com on January 17, 2018.

 

 

The King of Norway by Cecelia Holland

 

3 Stars

A Viking adventure with all the gore and blood that you could ask for. If only I could have been made to care for the characters…

 

Forever Bound by Joe Haldeman

 

3 Stars

Soldiers learning to maneuver robots in the war have to do as part of a hive mind. Pretty soon, real life cannot compare with the virtual one that they lead with the other members of the hive.

 

The Triumph by Megan Lindholm/Robin Hobb

 

 

4 Stars

A retelling of the myth of Marcus Atilius Regulus, a Roman Consul. In the story, he is tortured by Carthaginians before his death. Everything in the story is actually setting up the reader for the way he dies.

 

Clean Slate by Lawrence Block

 

3 Stars

An abused child grows up into a sociopath. You can guess what happens next!

 

And Ministers of Grace by Tad Williams

 

3 Stars

It isn’t that bioengineered soldiers haven’t been done before. Here though the author makes it all about religion.

 

Soldierin’ by Joe R. Lansdale

 

4 Stars

A black man joins the army in the eradication of Native Americans. The story remains localized and makes no claims about the big picture.

 

Dirae by Peter S. Beagle

 

3 Stars

A coma patient becomes an avenging spirit with a special soft place in her heart for kids.

 

The Custom of the Army by Diana Gabaldon

 

4 Stars

I have been wondering if I would like Gabaldon’s writing and I wonder no more. This story is based on a skirmish between the French and English soldiers on Canadian soil.

 

Seven Years from Home by Naomi Novik

 

4 Stars

Nature and “people” come together in this story to save the land. I liked this one because plants featured in it.

 

The Eagle and the Rabbit by Steven Saylor

 

3 Stars

POVs change as we see Carthage fall and a Roman general plays mind games with the Carthaginians he will be selling off to slavery.

 

The Pit by James Clemens/James Rollins

 

4 Stars

Canine gladiators and sibling love made this story one of my faves!

 

Out of the Dark by David Weber

 

4 Stars

An alien race tries to take over the planet and humans band together to stop that from happening. They also have help from the unlikeliest of sources.

 

 

The Girls from Avenger by Carrie Vaughn

 

3 Stars

Women have faced discrimination whenever they have dared to step into a profession. Flying planes during a war isn’t any different.

 

Ancient Ways by S. M. Stirling

 

 

4 Stars

A mercenary is hired to rescue a princess who didn’t really need to be rescued. The princess was a pleasant surprise.

 

Ninieslando by Howard Waldrop

 

3 Stars

A utopian dream to unite the world while a war goes on outside. Didn’t take too long for it to unravel.

 

Recidivist by Gardner Dozois

 

4 Stars

AIs rule the world. Humans don’t stand a chance against them yet they won’t give up fighting back or remembering how life used to be.

 

 

My Name is Legion by David Morrell

 

3 Stars

Sometimes, the enemy on the other side of the border is your friend. In this story, soldiers who trained together are forced to fight against each other when France daren’t go against Germany.

 

Defenders of the Frontier by Robert Silverberg

 

3 Stars

Soldiers have been manning an entry point into their empire for years now. No reinforcements have arrived for some time. The absence of enemies starts to make them think. Does the empire they have been defending even exist anymore?

 

The Scroll by David Ball

 

3 Stars

A bully of an emperor keeps an architect alive just to torture him. The ending was a letdown.

 

The Mystery Knight: A Tale of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin

 

3 Stars

A tale of Egg, the squire who isn’t a squire, and the knight he serves.

 

I’d say, you won’t be missing much if you didn’t read this anthology. But that’s just me…
