Audio Book Review: Wolves And Roses (Fairy Tales of the Magicorum #1) By Christina Bauer
Wolves and Roses - Christina Bauer

 

This is the second novel by this author that I've read and I've come to the conclusion that her books don't work for me. The writing style makes everything slow and longwinded. There are a few parts here and there that remind me why the story was interesting in the first place but it goes back to walking through quicksand a little bit later. The concept of this universe the author created was so interesting, but the way it was written threw me off.

 

Bryar Rose started off interesting but became annoying throughout the story. She seemed to be the exception to impossible rules. There were times when I wanted to strongarm her into getting a grip and asking the important question that would move the story along instead of her taking time to think things through and have something catastrophic coincidently happen. There were a few situations where some basic common sense would have done her some good and would have made that situation not happen or have it go by faster.

 

Knox was standoffish in the beginning and eventually won me over throughout the story. He turned out to be sweet and caring, but his inner wolf was one annoying beast. It kept repeating obvious actions to certain situations during the story and by the end I wanted to punch him myself.

 

Everyone that wasn't Bryar and Knox felt one dimensional. Most of the adults in this novel were either evil or spoke in riddles (which only added to my frustration with the slow-moving plot). This is a trope I'm not fond of and would like to never encounter in any novels.

 

Overall I'm disappointed with this book because it had so much potential. The concept is unique, but it was too slow paced for me to enjoy. I don't know if I'll be picking up the next book in this series.

 

The Audio Book:

 

This was the first audio book that I had to set the reading speed higher for me to finish listening to it. The narrator (who is also the author) does a good job with the narration. My problem was the combination of a very slow-paced novel with a narrator who naturally reads with larger pauses. I was ready to give up by hour 6. My aversion to how slow-paced this novel was probably made me more antsy than necessary with the narration.

New Release Review! Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon (Dragon Guards #21) Julia Mills!
Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon - Julia Mills

 

 

The books in this epic saga can be read as stand-alone stories, or you can experience all the love, thrills, and exploits of the whole series from beginning to end. It's up to you. ENJOY!

 

On her ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ soul-searching journey across the country with nothing but her radio blastin', the top rolled down, and her trusty red Jeep named Daisy Mae, Dax may have bitten off more than she can chew this time.

 

Bright red hair and a smile that darn near knocks him on his butt, the woman stuck on the side of the road is a wild filly J.D. would love to tame, but then again, she’s absolutely perfect just the way she is.

 

The desert’s hot but this couple's hotter , not to mention the raised-from-the-dead Medicine Man who’s hell bent on bathing his special little precious in their blood. Talk about prickly as a cactus!

 

The Great Creator and the Universe don’t make mistakes and Fate Will Not Be Denied, but the flames of Destiny are hotter than ever before.

 

Grab your hat and boots and head for the desert, ‘cause this lady’s claiming her Dragon and nothin’ will ever be the same.

 

 


Well, I have to tell you that I got a bit more than I expected from this intriguing and completely enthralling story.

 

It is fast paced and full of thrilling events and exciting twists and turns as well as a mating that is quite literally flaming hot. Dax and J.D. is delightful characters full of snark and flames, they set the pages on fire when their chemistry comes together and they had me smiling and chuckling throughout the story, they even made me chuckle during the intense and thrilling excitement of their face off with a very deadly enemy.

 

And I have to say the uniqueness of the characters in this story also makes for an exhilarating change and certainly lights up my imagination while adding spice and magic to the story as well. This is a great romance to read during a break or when you have only a little time to yourself because it packs quite a sensational punch in such a short read.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books


I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.
I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

Release Week Review! Wolf's Mate (Crescent Moon #7) Savannah Stuart / Katie Reus!
Wolf's Mate - Savannah Stuart

 

 

She wasn’t supposed to fall for him.

 

Erica’s time away from her pack was just supposed to be fun. Then she met Hudson. Instead of the no-strings attached fling, she ended up falling for him. But they’d promised each other that they’d keep things casual. Instead of risking her heart, she ran. Now she’s pregnant—and he’s determined to claim her. But the last thing she wants is to be an obligation to him.

 

Now she’s pregnant.

 

Erica could never be a duty to Hudson, but for some reason that’s what she thinks she is. He tried to go slow, to give her space—so he wouldn’t scare her off. Now he realizes that was a mistake. It’s time for this wolf to claim his mate.

 

Unfortunately a neighboring pack is stirring up trouble for his pack, and his she-wolf is determined to keep walls between them. Walls he intends to bring down once and for all.

 

Length: novella

 

Author note: all novellas in the series can easily be read as individual titles. There are no cliffhangers and each story has a HEA.

 

Crescent Moon Series:


1. Taming the Alpha
2. Claiming His Mate
3. Tempting His Mate
4. Saving His Mate
5. To Catch His Mate
6. Falling For His Mate
7. Wolf’s Mate

 

 

Wolf’s Mate is another exciting story in the Crescent Moon series by Katie Reus / Savannah Stuart. Erica has spent a little time away from her pack for fun but just when she starting to get a little homesick, she meets Hudson and a no-strings fling has her falling in love. Hudson wanted to go slow and give Erica space in the hopes of not scaring her off unfortunately for him his she-wolf is determined to keep walls between them. This relationship is sticky, sweet, passionate and brings two emotionally confused wolves together as Erica and Hudson try to work through their feelings and determine if they are mates or not. The plot is fast paced and keeps readers glued to the pages with the romance suspense but also Hudson’s pack is having a bit of difficulty with another pack, so readers are introduced to two new packs and still get in some time with the Alpha of the Crescent Moon pack – Grant.

 

As always the characters are strong, captivating, easily connected to and draw their readers into their story and while the story is short, it is a delightful read with a fulfilling story because the author doesn’t try to pack too many happenings into too short of a book. The introduction to the new characters caught my attention which means that I hope means that Katie Reus continues to provide me Crescent Moon stories.

She fell in love with romance at a young age thanks to books she pilfered from her mom's stash. Years later she loves reading romance almost as much as she loves writing it. However, she didn't always know she wanted to be a writer. After changing majors many times, she finally graduated with a degree in psychology. Not long after that she discovered a new love. Writing. She now spends her days writing dark paranormal romance and sexy romantic suspense.

Harry Potter Fans Would Enjoy This
Ice Wolves - Amie Kaufman

I almost didn't read this when I saw it was middle school level. It's hard, I'm a well aged adult, yes well aged. I like to think I'm mature and need adult level book to be entertained. But, I really loved the Illuminae Files she wrote so I dove in. I am not not mature or this was really good writing. I loved it.
The story follows two orphans, twins as they struggle to live free in a world separated by war and hate. There are humans who need protection, wolves who provide it and dragons who cause all the trouble. When one twin changes and the other goes another way the questions start forming and the truth slowly starts to unfold. One goes to be sacrificed one goes to a magical military school. There are a lot of unknowns, lies, hidden secrets and magic all new to them. One of the twins struggles with the need to save the other twin and new friendships who to trust. Meanwhile something is not adding up, and the teachers know more.
I got Harry Potter like vibes from this. Young magical child who never knew he held magic, finds he is so much more and attends a school for other like him, where a smart loner type girl befriends him. That is were the likeness ends. I think fans of Harry Potter might really enjoy this. There is no sex, no romance.

2.7 Out Of 5 STARS for me on this one...
Wake of Vultures - Lila Bowen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Wake Of Vultures

Lila Bowen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Nettie Lonesome lives in a land of hard people and hard ground dusted with sand. She's a half-breed who dresses like a boy, raised by folks who don't call her a slave but use her like one. She knows of nothing else. That is, until the day a stranger attacks her. When nothing, not even a sickle to the eye can stop him, Nettie stabs him through the heart with a chunk of wood and he turns to black sand.

 

And just like that, Nettie can see.

 

But her newfound sight is a blessing and a curse. Even if she doesn't understand what's under her own skin, she can sense what everyone else is hiding—at least physically. The world is full of evil, and now she knows the source of all the sand in the desert. Haunted by the spirits, Nettie has no choice but to set out on a quest that might lead her to find her true kin . . . if the monsters along the way don't kill her first. 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

This felt like it was trying too hard to be about as many relevant topics as it could, and for me personally, I think it just came off as overtly chaotic.  It started out good, I was feeling the alternate old west world she had created…then it just became crude and uncomfortable.  Then there were the supernatural elements, seriously it had everything from Vampires to Chupacabra's, with several more in between, too many really…but  hey, there are plenty of readers out there who liked this.  With that being said…its overall message about not being afraid to be yourself is the best thing about this book, and it's the reason I rated as high as I did.
