I should have known
The Name of the Blade, Book Three: Frail Mortal Heart - Zoë Marriott

I am quite a fan of Zoe Marriott and I should have trusted that the end of the series would be satisfying. It was well done and the characters played a blinder and I was at the edge of my virtual seat (most of the reading was in bed) throughout.

 

Mio has managed to win a battle, at a terrible cost and now she has to try to keep with the war.  She realises that she will have to make more hard choices and that if she wants to win and keep the world safe she will have to fight and that fight will not be easy in any way.

 

I was invested in the characters and the situations and the relationships felt right, yes, things were finished up a bit neatly and somewhat less nastily than if it was an adult novel but it was a good read all the same.

 

I know I said I was going to use the Peter Grant novel I have on the wings for my Darkest London square but I'm going to use this one.  It was a good story and I enjoyed the read.

Hooked on a Witch (Keepers of the Veil #4) by Zoe Forward
Hooked On A Witch - Zoe Forward
Hooked on a Witch is the fourth book in the Keepers of the Veil series, and can be read as a standalone, so long as you don't mind catching up as you go along. Shannon is learning what it is to be a Pleiades Witch, for all that she may not have long to live. During her search for a specific object, she reunites with Merck, a young man she knew from school who she liked. Things move on very quickly as one enemy and another comes after Shannon and Merck, throwing them together even though they decide otherwise.
 
This is a fast-paced and action-filled book. Shannon is still very nervous about her magic, whilst Merck is completely confident in his. Together, these two help the other, giving them something they didn't realise was missing. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I really hope that I see more of these two, as I would love to see Shannon blossom into her abilities, and to gain confidence as the leader of the Pleiades Witches. With a neat twist at the end, this book was thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely recommended by me.

New York Dairies -Zoe-
New York Diaries - Zoe: Roman - Carrie Price

Klappenbroschur, Knaur TB 

 

03.07.2017, 336 S.

Diese Ausgabe ist lieferbar

 

 9,99

 

 

New York Diaries Reihe 
Band 1: Claire von Ally Taylor
Band 2: Sarah von Carrie Price
Band 3: Phoebe von Ally Taylor 
Band 4: Zoe von Carrie Price

 

 

 

Die Erfolgsserie geht weiter - der neue Roman von Carrie Price aus der Reihe "New York Diaries": eine junge Frau zwischen ihrem großen Traum und ihrer großen Liebe.

 

 

Zoe Hunter kommt mit zu viel Gepäck, einer pinken Couch und dem großen Traum, Schauspielerin zu werden, aus Idaho nach New York. Doch die Wohnung, die sie beziehen wollte, wurde anderweitig vermietet, und der Übergangsjob in einem Café ist auch weg. Ihre erste Nacht verbringt sie auf ihrer Couch in einer Seitenstraße und lernt dort den schrägen Matt Booker kennen, der ihr eine Wohnung im Knights Building verschafft. Aber in New York hat niemand auf die talentierte Miss Idaho gewartet. Trost findet sie bei Matt, der Zoe mehr und mehr verzaubert. Doch dann fordert ihr neuer Agent von Zoe eine Entscheidung: Karriere oder Liebe?

 

Chaotisch, sexy und hochromantisch: Das sind die "New York Diaries"!

 

Meine Meinung:

 

Ich habe ja auch schon die anderen drei Teile begeistert gelesen. Daher habe ich mich natürlich ebenfalls auf diesen letzten Teil der Reihe sehr gefreut. Freundlicherweise wurde mir das Buch vom Verlag zu Rezensionszwecken zur Verfügung gestellt. 

 

Der Einstieg in das Buch ist mir wieder sehr leicht gelungen, ich war gleich in der Geschichte drin. Auch der Schreibstil war wie gewohnt sehr flüssig, so dass es schnell zu lesen war. 

 

Die Hauptprotagonistin Zoe hat mir direkt sehr gut gefallen, ich konnte ihre Not total verstehen und habe Matt daher natürlich auch sofort ins Herz geschlossen, der ihr so völlig selbstverständlich geholfen hat. 

 

Was ich in diesem Teil besonders toll fand, war, dass die vorherigen Protagonistinnen immer mal zwischendurch eine Rolle gespielt haben. Eigentlich müsste Zoes neuer Freundin auch noch ein Teil gewidmet werden. 

 

Meiner Meinung nach können bei dieser Reihe aber dennoch alle Teile unabhängig voneinander gelesen werden. 

 

Mir hat in diesem Buch das Thema Schauspielerei sehr gut gefallen und auch die Entwicklung, die Zoe hier mit gemacht hat. Es gab hier Höhen und Tiefen, mir kam es schon realistisch vor. 

 

Alles in allem war dieser 4. Teil ein absolut gelungener Abschluss dieser tollen Reihe. Ich könnte gar nicht sagen, welcher Teil mein Favorit war. Mir haben eigentlich alle Bücher gleich gut gefallen. Ich kann hier auf jeden Fall eine Kauf- und Leseempfehlung aussprechen. Von mir bekommt auch dieser Teil der Reihe 4 Sterne.

Blood Bank by Zoe Markham Giveaway & Review @ZoeMarkham @YABoundToursPR
Blood Bank - Zoë Markham

 

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

Blood Bank
by Zoe Markham
Genre: YA Fantasy/Horror
Release Date: July 2017

 

MY REVIEW

 

There is so much that drew me to Blood Bank by Zoe Markham – the title, the cover, the subject matter…

 

At first, I kept getting confused and had to go back and read the blurb. It seemed to be all over the place. But, maybe that was just me, because it didn’t take long for it to come together.

 

I know people tend to have a love/hate relationship with Twilight, so I must warn you right out of the gate, if you hate Twilight, you might want to move on. I loved Twilight and the further into the story I go, the more it comes to mind. Works great for me.

 

Zack owes a vampire a debt and must come when called. The debt will be paid in blood…his. They own him. There is no way out, but death. Or is there?

 

Zack is summoned and he leaves his girlfriend, Lucy, high and dry in a seedy part of town and I know something wicked this way comes.

 

Ben is part of The Clan and they use the internet and Club Dystopia to fulfill their financial and feeding needs. They walk among us, they look like us…sorta…talk like us, and could be standing right next to us. You do not want to get on the wrong side of them.

 

But Ben is different and is about to cross the vampiric line…Do vampires have souls?

They want nothing to do with women. Why? Is it true that we are the stronger of the species?

 

Zoe Markham got me good when Lucy was attacked with needles. I was fooled and I love when an author is able to pull that off.

 

As the characters are drawn together, the story heats up, the danger rises and lives are at stake, human and vampire alike. How they’ll get out of the mess they’re in, I am trying to figure out. They are flawed characters and I empathize  with their conflicting thoughts and feelings.

 

OH MAN…no ending. I was left in an okay place, and I can guess most of what is to come, but I still want to take the journey with Lucy, Ben and Zack, right to the end.

Review of Zoe's Tale by John Scalzi
Zoe's Tale - John Scalzi

I really enjoyed this quick read. I might have rated it higher if it was a story on its own, but this fourth book in the Old Man's War series tells the same exact story as the previous book, but from the point of view of a different character.  I loved the read from this new perspective, but there was little drama as to how the story was going to work out so that took a bit away from the enjoyment.  Either way, I look forward to the next book in the series.
