Epic-ly awesome!
The Dragon Reborn - Robert Jordan
The Great Hunt - Robert Jordan
A Crown of Swords - Robert Jordan

Ok... So I don't do puns very well... However, I wanted to make it known that the Wheel of Time series is a good one for Epic lovers.

 

This isn't your regular trilogy, I still have 3 books to go in the series and I know I will finish all of them.  Robert Jordan did a fantastic job of making you love each and every protagonist. I love stories that jump from one star to the next so you have a better understanding of what is happening at which time. Becoming invested in what happens to each of these characters is so easy and I can root for each one in their own unique way.

 

Rand, Egwene, Nynaeve, Elayne, Mat, Perrin and a few others are followed on a journey that is a tale of good versus evil. A tale that has been told before, yes... but this is an entirely new and unique way to tell such a tale.

 

Four stars remains my review level of choice because I often get bogged down in the feeling that the story needs a jump forward. It is as if the stage has to be set and reset at times. Yet I still love the series and it isn't enough to stop my enjoyment of following the storyline and characters.

 

I recommend this series to lovers of fantasy, historical fiction or even just those who have read any other stories by Robert Jordan.

 

Happy Reading everyone!

Halloween Bingo Update-last book to read
Red Dragon - Thomas Harris

Reading my last book for our Halloween Bingo , and it's the first time I'm read Red Dragon , I actually owned as a physical book but it got lost and I never got to read it, it's funny you would think that I would have read this series which how much I love to watch and re watch The Slicence Of The Lambs. In fact as soon as I saw Google play books had Red Dragon on sell I grabbed it up and that was like 2 years and still haven't read ,but thanks to our Halloween Bingo and the box Slasher Stories I knew it was the perfect time to finally read it,.And it's the perfect day to read it as well since its cold ,and wet and feels like a good day for a thriller .

It's nothing what I expected and a lot more interesting than I thought.
The Last Dragon Princess - Cynthia Payne

This book is absolutely amazing. If you enjoy a good paranormal fantasy then it's a must-read. The story is set in a world of dragons and Creators. It's full of mystery, action, and adventure. It revolves around one breeder and a flock of dragon shifters or warriors, as they are called sometimes. Their job is to fight Creators and keep them from enslaving Hisgeii.

 

The story starts when young breeder, Danu, and young shifters come off age. They will now enter society and do their duty. As a breeder, Danu must ensure the continuation of shifter's next generation. Although she is nervous about her role and what it entails, she has learned enough to deal with it. However, councilman Calmus has a surprise for her, at the last minute he changes the rules of the game. He pronounces her as their breeder queen and the one who would marry her would become king. That has never happened before. It's bound to ruffle some feathers and cause chaos in this small community. As Danu tries to make up her mind about her next step she finds out things that she probably shouldn't have. In order to make the right decision, she would now lose somethings that are precious to her. No matter what happens next, one thing is for sure, Danu has the best interest of her people at heart and she would do anything to protect them and ensure their survival.

 

Things get more complicated when the creators come looking for them. It turns out that there is a lot which they don't know about themselves as well as their worst enemies. Divided by castes, will these people be able to stand against an enemy so powerful that even their best warriors don't stand a chance against them... unless there is another way to defeat this time old foe? One thing is for sure, it's going to get far more complicated than it ever was, but maybe this is their chance to reclaim their true identities and finally be able to live in peace.

 

This story made me imagine primitive Roman society. The story is quite engaging and characters are all well-developed. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend to all fans of dragon-shifters, this one is definitely an original and interesting take on dragons, where they came from, and how they live.

 

P.S. Can I just say that the book cover is absolutely gorgeous and goes well with the story?

Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken $1.99 Great Series! Funny! Oh, and get your rage on ladies...
Dragon Actually - G.A. Aiken

t's not always easy being a female warrior with a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody. Men tend to either cower in fear--a lot--or else salute. It's true that Annwyl has a knack for decapitating legions of her ruthless brother's soldiers without pausing for breath. But just once it would be nice to be able to really talk to a man, the way she can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer.

Too bad that Fearghus is a dragon, of the large, scaly, and deadly type. With him, Annwyl feels safe--a far cry from the feelings aroused by the hard-bodied, arrogant knight Fearghus has arranged to help train her for battle. With her days spent fighting a man who fills her with fierce, heady desire, and her nights spent in the company of a magical creature who could smite a village just by exhaling, Annwyl is sure life couldn't get any stranger.

She's wrong.  .  .

And just wait until you meet the rest of the family.  .  .
