Review for Blog Tour I am Involved in.
The Villainous Viscount Or The Curse Of The Venns - Lucinda Elliot,Streetlight Grahics

 

My Review

I really had trouble reading this one, I couldn't connect with any of the characters. So I just skipped around a lot to see how the book ended. I didn't even care for the ending, I was just so bored that I didn't care what happened at the end as long as I got to it, as soon as possible.

I think that some of it has to do with have a lot of luck with books, that soon that streak had to end eventually.

I am still happy that I was invited to take part in the book tour for this book. So thanks so much for this opportunity.

Book Review: Enchanting Raven (Curse Of The Vampire Queen #2) By Jessica Sorensen
Enchanting Raven - Jessica Sorensen

 

I'm still in the dark about so many important aspects of this story, yet I keep coming back for more. I don't know how this story got me into its clutches so tightly. All I can say is that I'm happy where I am and that I need the continuation to this series as soon as humanly possible.

 

Raven seems to be as sneaky as ever with all the eavesdropping she does in this novel. She's getting bolder and has developed a strong personality and quite the backbone. The memory flashbacks were interesting to experience. It put the love interest in a much better light than he was in from the first novel.

 

Rhyland is on his way to winning me over. This novel explains most of the annoying quirks he had in the first novel that got under my skin. It also explains how the curse initially was set in place (which was very interesting to see).

 

Kingsley's last chapter blew everything out of the water. Throughout the story, it never seemed like he felt the way he did. Even if it did, wasn't he just being his sarcastic and aloof self? I have a prediction for how his storyline intertwines with everything else and I sincerely hope that I'm wrong. 

 

I loved the vampire sayings the author adapted into this novel. They were very cute and I caught myself smiling quite a bit because of them. The cliffhangers in this series, on the other hand, are killing me. Here's to hoping the wait for the next novel isn't too long from now.

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"Love has a way of making creatures think irrationally. Take their love away completely, and they lose their minds."

 

"I always want the truth, Kings, no matter how much it hurts."

 

"I have a hero complex and would never pass up the opportunity to save a damsel in distress."

Fast-paced read
A Gifted Curse (The Cloven Pack Series: Book One) - D. Fischer

A Gifted Curse is fast-paced and engaging read. The flow and plot are good, if a bit predictable, and the story does hold a reader's interest. Makenna and Evo are equally matched in the strong personality department, making for some amusing interactions and verbal sparring, as well as some scorching hot sexy fun. In addition to the blooming romance, we also get the added suspense of a rogue shifter that is linked to missing girls and now has his eye on Makenna. I particularly liked the interactions among Evo's pack, giving enough to get a feel for the secondary characters and their banter was great for keeping the story on the lighter side.

Shadow's Curse - Alexa Egan

I had difficulty getting into this one and staying interested. The passion felt stunted and rushed in its description. The villain was good and the conflict was interesting, but the plot just was hard to get into.  Not really sure what it was exactly that I found hard to get into. The characters were good, though the tension between the two could have been more developed. The passion could have been explored and drawn out; he was a womanizer after all so that aspect could have played more of a role (his reputation coming back to bite him, him being placed in a situation where she could misconstrue what was going on, etc.) in the tension and emotional development of their relationship. When he goes into Death to save her was a good scene, that added some emotional suspense to the plot. There wasn't anything bad about it; I was just a bit bored.

REVIEW BY ANGI - Alabaster Island: The Mermaid Curse Prequel by M.S. Kaminsky
Alabaster Island: The Mermaid Curse Prequel - M.S. Kaminsky

Seventeen-year-old Marei lives on Alabaster Island, a remote tropical isle inhabited by twenty-one families. Nobody under the age of eighteen has ever left to visit the mainland. The island and its strange customs are all that Marei and her friends know.

For years, Marei dreaded The Binding. On that day, each teen must write his or her choice of life mate. But with childhood sweetheart drowned long ago, Marei has no boy in mind. And so she leaves her paper blank. This sets off a chain of events that ruptures the bedrock of her life and leads her to question the only home she’s ever had. 

She encounters a mermaid, beings thought to have gone extinct. The mermaid tells Marei to leave the island and offers to help. When a handsome teen from the mainland becomes stranded after a supply drop, Marei falls in love. Her secret plan to flee becomes an obsession. 

But the mermaid has a hidden agenda of her own. Now Marei must confront the shocking reality that lies beneath island life. The choices she makes threaten to upend her fate and that of her island community forever…but only if she can escape alive

 

@mskauthor, @Angi_Plant, #Young_Adult, #Fantasy, #Mystery, 3 out of 5 (good)
