Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.

 

My Review

I thought the book was pretty good. I have never read the first series with Michael and Claudia, so I will definitely have to later down the road. I thought the main character of Lucia was an okay heroine, but it took awhile for me to start to warm up to her. I really loved her brother Zach and there guardian Davin a lot. Davin was so freaking funny and kept me laughing, but he also had a very serious side as well. 

Lucia is only 17 years old I had to keep reminding myself that, because of some of the stupid stuff she does in the book. Plus she hasn't liked in the human world, or liked a boy, until she meets Eli, so she's also dealing with her hormones. 

Now Eli I am still not sure about, I really don't know if I like him or not. Or how I feel about him and Lucia as a couple. Sometimes his such a jerk to Lucia, and he seems like a know it all. 

I thought the book was very interesting especially the ending, which ends in a very big cliffhanger. So I am looking forward to the rest of the series to see however is going to turn out for everyone. Oh before I forget, which I would hate ,is if I don't talk about Lucia's best guy friend and another one of my favorite characters, which is Jack. I really love that he plays a big part in things that are going on, in regards to the plot. I just freaking love this guy, his just so awesome to me. I love that he is there for Lucia, and even though he likes Lucia as more than a friend, he knows that Eli is the one Lucia wants to be with. And he still wants to be in her life, if only in a best friend. 

Thanks to all parties involved that picked me to take part in the book tour for this book, after I requested for it.

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
The Rise of the Dawnstar (Avalonia Chronicles) - Farah Oomerbhoy

The Rise of the Dawnstar
Farah Oomerbhoy
(The Avalonia Chronicles #2)
Publication date: April 24th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Aurora Firedrake returns in the spellbinding sequel to The Last of the Firedrakes.

The seven kingdoms of Avalonia are crumbling and evil is spreading across the land like a plague. Queen Morgana is close to finding a way to open The Book of Abraxas and it’s only a matter of time until she uses the power trapped inside its pages to enslave the entire world.

With Avalonia growing more dangerous by the day, Aurora must travel through war-torn lands and deep into the heart of the fae kingdom of Elfi. Her goal is to find a legendary weapon infused with the last of the realm’s ancient magic—the only weapon in the world powerful enough to stop the queen.

Aurora might have survived her first battle against Morgana, but the true fight to save her kingdom and restore her throne has only just begun…

My Review

I really thought this one had a lot of action and gives you much more answers than the first one. I still like Rory but I just wish she wasn't so hung up on Rafe, I am just not a hugh fan of his, and I don't see what she sees in him. 

We are introduced to another guy who I like a lot more than Rafe, his name is 

Tristan. What can I say about this sexy and interesting individual, besides I wish Rory would fall in love with him and get over Rafe. Unfortunately I think even though I wouldn't pick Rafe for her, I still think his the end game. I have to say Tristan and Rory, don't hit it off at first, and that's due to him. He is a complete ass to her at first, but he does chance. I love that he doesn't try to over protect Rory but stand beside her. Rafe isn't even in this book that much which is a plus for me. There are betrayals and some secrets revealed, so I am so excited what's going to happen next. 

I am so happy that I asked and was chosen to take part in the book tour for this book. One last thing, I really hope I start to like Rafe more in the next book. I think one of the reasons I am not connecting to Rafe, is because he hasn't really been in the books that much. So maybe if his in the next book more and I learn more about him, I will like him with Rory more.

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with. Different but Interesting book.
Damned - Lucas Astor,Alexandrea Weis

Damned
Alexandrea Weis & Lucas Astor
Publication date: October 3rd 2017
Genres: Adult, Supernatural

Over a hundred years after the death of Magnus Blackwell, Altmover Manor sits abandoned.

Lexie Arden and her fiancé, Will Bennet, are determined to rescue the neglected Mount Desert Island landmark. They want to make Altmover Manor their home. But Magnus has other plans.

A spirit bound to his former residence, Magnus finds himself inexplicably drawn to the young woman. She has a supernatural gift; a gift Magnus wants to exploit.

As Lexie and Will settle in, secrets from Magnus’s past begin to surface. Compelled to learn all she can about the former owner, Lexie becomes immersed in a world of voodoo, curses, and the whereabouts of a mysterious dragon cane.

Magnus’s crimes won’t be so easily forgotten, and what Lexie unearths is going to change the future … for everyone.

My Review

First I have to say Magnus's is definitely not a nice guy, I know his a ghost but his a guy still. He was a ghost that did some gross things and Lexie didn't even seem upset or grossed out. I will say Magnus did have some good moments but for most of the book he was a jerk. I really had a love, hate, but mostly hate relationship with him.

Now Lexie was for the most part okay, but I don't understand how she could want to be around Magnus after what he did. I loved her ability to see and talk to ghost. I will say, while she did think Magnus was good-looking, I could tell she was in love with her boyfriend Will. 

I thought Will was okay but pretty naive. (Sorry if I spelled  the wrong.) He didn't want to believe Lexie had this gifted when there were things happening that couldn't be explained. Plus other individuals besides Lexie was telling him the same things. 

This is definitely different than other books I usually read due to voodoo. But that didn't stop me from staying up until 1:00 am to see how everything would end.

The things Magnus was doing as a ghost to Lexie, not all of it was his doing. 

The books ending was definitely a weird one, that's for sure. But really the book was still pretty good, even if it was strange.

I am so glad that I was able to take part in the tour, after I requested for it.

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with. Really awesome!!!!!
A Memory of Fire (SoulNecklace Stories Book 3) - R.L. Stedman

A Memory of Fire
R.L. Stedman
(SoulNecklace Stories #3)
Publication date: October 1st 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

About my wrist is a tattoo of roses, strung like beads on a bracelet of thorns. I have a past, if only I could remember — but I cannot remember.

Held captive in a strange city, Dana dreams of fire and flight. There is something she must find, but she does not know what it is, or why it is important. If only her dreams would let her rest.

Half a world away, Will studies a new, exciting discipline. But while N’tombe the enchantress is impressed by his newfound skills, inside he feels only desperation. A terrible moment is approaching; soon, Dana must face her final ordeal. Is his new power enough to save her? And is he prepared for what might happen next?

In this thrilling conclusion to the award-winning SoulNecklace Stories, Will and Dana must make a heart-breaking choice. A choice that may change their world forever.

My Review

Just have to say one of my favorite book from the different book tours that I take part in.

Favorite part of the book of course if you read my other two reviews from this series, you would already know, is the character of Will. In this book, which I am sad is the last one, Will really grew a lot from a young man in the first book were he lost so much, to becoming the man that he was meant to be. 

Dana grows a lot as well in this final book in this fantastic series. She had to get herself out of a lot of serious problems on her own.

I really loved the book but there were things that really confused me but I can't really say what because then it would become spoil city. I will say it was at the end of the book.

Something that might turn some people off and  this will be a little bit  of a spoiler is that Will and Dana, in each book are separated for parts of the book. This didn't bother me because this needed to happen for each of these two characters can grow, and do what needed to be done to win against their enemies. 

I am so super happy that I was chosen to be involved with this  book tour, I really loved this series, and I will definitely have to visit this story another time, so I can visit with Will once again.

Reading progress update: I've read 24%.
The Rise of the Dawnstar (Avalonia Chronicles) - Farah Oomerbhoy

So far it seems like I am going to like this more than the first book. Rory I still like a lot I just wish she would start to like someone other than Rafe. Rafe isn't awful but I feel like he wants to be someone other than herself. I just think his very over protective over Rory, and with his situation this isn't his job. Plus Rory really has some awesome powers, and he needs to let go. I really love that there is already a lot of action and adventure taken place already, at just the 24% mark. I really can't wait to see what happens next.
