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.

Freaking Awesome, Loved it!!!!!!
A Skillful Warrior (SoulNecklace Stories) (Volume 2) - R.L. Stedman

I can't believe this series gets better and better. I freaking love the character of Will, I love that each book so far his in it more and more. It's a pretty strange story but that's what I love about it. I still like Dana but to me Will just steals the scenes for me. I think I actually love this series so much, just because of Will, the bad guys thou aren't very scary at least to me. They are very strange to me and maybe that's why, I do have to say that I wish they did scare me!!!!!!

I do have to say this book does end in a cliffhanger, so readers beware. I have finished the last book in the series, but have to save the review until my day of the book tour review. So look for it, on the 13th.

A Skillful Warrior (SoulNecklace Stories) (Volume 2) - R.L. Stedman

Up to part 3, and the action keeps a coming!!!!! I am really enjoying this series a lot, so far I think this series Is going to be one of my favorite series that I have read in a very long time. I am really liking Dana more and more every page that she's on. But of course Will has my heart in this book, he gets braver and braver as time goes on. Of course he still has his moments of weakness of course. I wouldn't want him to be prefect, or I wouldn't be able to relate to him, and I wouldn't be able to love him as much as I do, in this book.

Once I am done I will update with the review and then start the last book in this wonderful, fantastic, series!!!!!!!
