Pucked Love (Pucked #6) by Helena Hunting
Pucked Love - Helena Hunting Pucked Love - Helena Hunting

Helena Hunting lights the lamp with PUCKED LOVE.  It is the sixth book in the Pucked series.  I’ve been looking forward to reading Charlene Hoar’s and Darren Westinghouse’s book for a long time.  Their relationship has been so mysterious throughout this series.  I loved finding out what their story is.  PUCKED LOVE was full of surprises and interesting twists.

 

Helena Hunting did an amazing job with her plot and character development.  Charlene and Darren are both complicated characters with difficult pasts.  They are both broken and the perfect people to fix each other.  Their need for privacy was understandable. I love Darren’s nickname for Charlene.  It is very appropriate.

 

There were so many interesting things that happened throughout the novel.  It had a little of everything. It was funny, serious, and heartwarming. Darren and Charlene both have unique parents.  Their pasts were distressing. I loved PUCKED LOVE. I enjoyed that the crew from the previous books played a crucial role in this story.  The team really is a family.  PUCKED LOVE was skillfully written and believable.  It had the perfect ending. I would love to see a spin off series with the kids.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Identified as an Egyptian  of Healing Thoth or Hermes Trismegistus (thrice-greatest), the legendary figure of Alchemists, is the first one we meet holding an egg-shaped vase and observing seven processes, used in transformation of metals into gold.

Satisfying yours forever thirsty curiosity, this story travels through the channels of Cam, ascends the hills of Edinburgh and enters Oxford’s castles, exploring very rare Ripley’s Alchemical manuscripts that use both verses and images to portray ancient esoteric teachings.

For all the mystical researchers, apparently there are only 21 in total, 16 of these alchemical manuscripts are in the UK; inside the Libraries in London, Oxford and Cambridge.

A lot of boring.
Your Irresistible Love - Layla Hagen

A stodgy romance, same ol, same ol. Quick read, there is steam and not a lot of story. Easy to leave this one by the wayside. If your goal is steam but not much story, this is a good choice.

Sometimes the simplest of messages can mean so much...to me this story is all about its message...
Sky in the Deep - Adrienne Young

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Part Wonder Woman, part Vikings—and all heart.
 
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.
 
Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
 
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
 
 
 
 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
While this story's message is a well-known one but, it's still an important one.  The reviews for this are all over the place, some loved and some did not even like.  I obviously really liked it, maybe possibly loved it, even.  Some said it was cliché, and not true to the Viking heritage...I didn't feel that way at all (not that I'm super knowledgeable about Viking heritage).  I believe if you go into this thinking that is Viking-inspired and not true Viking, you won't set yourself up for disappointment. 

Maybe, it was the narration that made me so invested in this story...the narration is excellently done, after all.  Maybe it's the fact that it is a stand-alone...I do love stand-alone's.  I think it's both of these things actually...plus the vivid writing and I seriously loved Fiske, and truly loved Eelyn and Fiske together.   éé

Post-Millennium Rhapsody - J. Andrew Schrecker

Opens with a long-ish poem that seems to be in reaction to current events. Followed by a short story that evokes pretty nostalgia and a few dozen shorter poems that were written earlier. A little all over the place as a collection, but plenty of good material. Vivid imagery and some rather surreal tangents.
