Book Review: Steel & Stone: Companion Collection By Annette Marie
Steel & Stone Companion Collection (Steel & Stone Book 6) - Annette Marie

 

This companion novel made the series that much better! I loved every single story, but Lyre has found a special place in my heart. I enjoyed seeing the same situations from a perspective that wasn't Piper. I like Piper, but being in Lyre or Ash's head is much more interesting considering they've been alive for centuries (it seems) and are much more knowledgeable in everything than Piper is.

 

If you couldn't tell by now, I adored being in Lyre's head. Annette Marie did this character justice with her writing and I'm so happy for that! Lyre proved to be just as secretive and intriguing as I was expecting him to be. I'm officially hyped for his prequel series.

 

Looking from Piper's eyes I assumed Ash would have complicated and tumultuous thoughts. From the stories from his point of view, he came off as nonchalant. It almost felt like a calm before the storm. It was interesting but not as interesting as Lyre.

 

Overall this was a collection of interesting stories and makes an amazing companion to the original series. These stories gave me a much better understanding of Ash and Lyre which would make re-reading the Steel & Stone Series that much more fascinating.

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"Once, Ash had called Lyre an angel of death. Tonight, he would do the name justice.  "

 

"Incubi are lover's, but no woman's true love."

 

"The past lies in rest, its ghosts long slumbering, and I would not disturb them. Let us begin again."

The Companion (The Submissive Heart Book 1) by Michelle Knight
The Companion (The Submissive Heart Book 1) - Michelle Knight

All she wanted was to make other people's lives better. All they did was make her life worse.

A chance meeting was all it took and she was introduced to a different way of life. When it came to society's way or the highway, she had never considered what might come of choosing the highway.

This is the journey of a woman into sexual enlightenment. Follow her transition from vanilla to 'the scene' - it is a highly erotic journey and depicts a path that countless women have traveled down in the past and countless more wish they had done so. Maybe now is their chance to follow Susan as we discover her own passionate, submissive journey into the freedom she was so hungry to find.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Submissive Heart books were a difficult series of installments to write reviews for because they all flow together in a serial like one long story from beginning to end.

The author visualized the four books: The Companion, The Reluctant Leader, From the Cradle, To the Grave as a film that was eventually translated into a book.

So this is how I will write my review because it gathers together my view on the books as a whole.

The Submissive Heart series is definitely erotic however this isn't your typical Erotica either. Its not written on the fantasy sweet romance side of Erotica most readers find on the shelves these days written by authors with no concept of what true Erotica really is.

The Submissive Heart series takes an honest realistic look at what true BDSM couples and persons in their communities really have to take into account when taking on partners and making arrangements for any involvements that they have.

Its not sexy, its not romantic, its real, its honest and it really brings to the foreground what it takes. From an understanding of who does what, who handles what. From your physical encounters, emotional stand points, to financial obligations and understanding how to balance your sexual interests with your personal ones.

I really liked that it wasn't all sexy, pretty or frilly. The people were real, they were flawed, they had genuine struggles, they were every day people like those out in the real world.

Granted the books could really use some development and editing but I really respected that the author had the mind to relate to real people and take honest accountability for both the risks and pleasures involved in such relationships.

The books are entertaining but they are also informative.

Keep in mind the books are more Fiction than Romance for the Erotic Romance readers out there but its nothing like the ridiculous Fifty Shades of Grey series that confuses ignorance and abuse with fetish.

Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion for Book Lovers
Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion fo... Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion for Book Lovers - Sally Allen My Review:
I'm going to have to get this book in paperback now that I have read it in ebook. This is the type of book that I need to be able to scribble in the margins! This would be a fabulous book to use for a book club for book lovers. It would make a wonderful reading list for such a book club!

I haven't read all the books in the book, but I've read at least one in each category, and usually more. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's comments and quotes on books. Not that I agreed with everything she said about every book, but that's why I think it would be so great for a book club. This book was written to start discussions and arguments about books! It's meant to get people engaged about books. And it certainly added to my reading list!

And absolute jewel of a book! Makes me want to get to know the author and be her next best friend! Sit in a shadey garden with a pot of tea and discuss books all day long!

This book was provided to me by Griffins Wharf and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.

I love Munchkin, but I may have overestimated my interest in essays about a card game.

The Caretaker's Guide to Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
The Caretaker's Guide to Fablehaven - Brandon Dorman,Brandon Mull

Initially, the cover of this book caught my eye. I'd never read the Fablehaven series, which this book is a companion to, but it made me want to learn more about the series. Inside, the book is filled with awesome drawings and amusing little notes "left" by the MC's of the series. It's divided into sections such as "Creatures", "Dragons", and "Artifacts & Items" just to name a few. It took me almost a couple of months to read and review this book because I was so impressed by it, I wanted to begin reading the actual series before I finished the companion book. I'm now on book 2, and I can see this as a handy book to come back to skim over and reread certain passages as needed. This is everything I could want from a companion book!
