Review: Keepers & the Soul Key (Meridian Chronicles #4) by M.D. Fryson
Keepers & the Soul Key - MD Fryson

Syno

 

 

What has happened to Aiden after his selfless act of sacrificing his life for Meridian? Where did Meridian go? True love can break the curse, but only an act of true love from a twin soul sets her free. Their epic and sudden departure have left their friends, witches, fairies, and spirits in search of their souls. While the high court demons strategize their attack of the hall of souls to absorb the angels' power — the only demoness at court has her secret obsession, and she used Moloch, the dark one's soul collector, who may have taken more than just one soul of a wicked witch. Astaroth's secret obsession and help from Moloch may indirectly help the dark one's plan. But there is one problem that lingers. Lahash, the rogue demon of the high court, has been charged to destroy his obsession, Echo, the Earth nymph. After kidnapping her and taking her to the dark realm, she is weakened and cannot fend off the brooding demon's lust. In a passionate moment, Lahash finally confesses why he is so obsessed with the nymph, and she admits her secret knowledge of human souls. The search for Meridian and Aiden surfaces a shocking revelation. Aiden is trapped and needs to be saved, but from who? The spirit guides demand the return of a spirit guide from the keepers, who remains in the hall of souls. They believe this spirit guide can stop the demons, save the spirit guide realm, find Meridian, and save humankind. The keepers, known as the angels, have one request that the chosen one must accomplish before Etheria can be saved, and Aiden to be returned. There is only one weapon that can destroy the demons, and it is the angels' quartz sword hidden on Earth. Will Etheria's chosen one of the spirit realm find the sword? Will the demons be destroyed, or will dark one's plan triumph? Can the fallen finally be freed of their awful fate? Will Lahash kill Echo? Find out if all is to be in vain or if the chosen one can defeat the demons, connect with her twin soul, and form the powerful soul key that can save all.

What a great conclusion to the series. I read it all in one sitting and did not put it down other than to get food and bathroom breaks, and even than I sometimes took it with me . When I started the series I was a bit confused, there were just so many people and so much going on with world building that I had a hard time staying focused. BUT once I got into and got to know the people better I loved it. I’m so glad I stuck with it. This being the last everything wraps up, but not before it takes us on a wild ride with lots of loops, twist and turns along the way. I really enjoyed not only this book but the entire series, it has everything I love in a book, paranormal, romance, action, suspense and lots of humor. I’m looking forward to more books from this author.

 

I rate this book a full 5★

Review: Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros
Great and Precious Things - Rebecca Yarros

Syno

 

How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.

But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again. But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we're willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.

I've been meaning to read a book by Rebbeca Yarros for a while now and I finally had the chance. I'm so glad I did, because I loved everything about this book. I loved the writing, the story and the vivid and wonderful world and characters Yarros created. Pretty early on in the book you just have the feeling like you’re right there with the rest of the characters. I loved that we get the dual POV, that we always knew what both Camden and Willow are up to and thinking, well as much as we are supposed to. The story is both, heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I cried, I swooned and I even giggled and laughed. It is not only about loss, betrayal and lost love, but also about second chances, healing and accepting not only other but yourself and your past. I loved both charterers and their real world struggles, so true and honest and how each are coping in different ways. Overall, I simply loved this book and I’m looking forward to reading more books by her. I rate it 5★

Review: Truth Be Told: A Novelby Kathleen Barber
Truth Be Told: A Novel - Kathleen L. Barber

Syno

 

 

Serial meets Ruth Ware’s In A Dark, Dark Wood in this inventive and twisty psychological thriller—formerly titled Are You Sleeping—about a mega-hit podcast that reopens a murder case and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim’s daughter.

The only thing more dangerous than a lie…is the truth.

Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family and with good reason. After her father’s murder thirteen years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister Lanie, once Josie’s closest friend and confidant, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now, Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner Caleb, and that’s where she intends to stay.

The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past—starting with her last name.

When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a megahit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie’s father’s murder, questioning whether the wrong person may be behind bars, Josie’s world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie’s long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown where she must confront the demons from her past—and the lies on which she has staked her future.

This was a fun and fast read for me that I enjoyed very much, I enjoyed it actually more than I thought I would.

The writing just had a way to draw you in and I didn’t want to put the book down and wanted to know what is going on.

Of course it goes back and forth in time, between and of course past, but it’s clear early in that we don’t know who is a bigger liar.  Of course there is a lot of Mystery about what really happened that night and every time we think we get it and find out what really, really happened or do we?!

 I also enjoyed all the family drama, past and present and the people around them.

I’m a true crime fan and I enjoy podcasts, so while this is not true crime, it presents itself as such ,it also has the parts of the podcasts and excerpts and such which honestly were my favorite part of the book.

Overall I really enjoyed this book, tons of suspense, kept me guessing and was easy and fast to read.  There were a few slower parts for me, but mostly it was great and enjoyed it a lot.

I hope to find more books like that.

Now that I read and enjoyed the book I might actually check out the TV show but we shall see.

I rate it 4

Review:A Bad Day for Sunshine(Sunshine Vicram #1)by Darynda Jones
A Bad Day for Sunshine - Darynda Jones

 

Syno

 

 

Sheriff Sunshine Vicram finds her cup o’ joe more than half full when the small village of Del Sol, New Mexico, becomes the center of national attention for a kidnapper on the loose. Del Sol, New Mexico is known for three things: its fry-an-egg-on-the-cement summers, its strong cups of coffee—and a nationwide manhunt? Del Sol native Sunshine Vicram has returned to town as the elected sheriff--an election her adorably meddlesome parents entered her in--and she expects her biggest crime wave to involve an elderly flasher named Doug. But a teenage girl is missing, a kidnapper is on the loose, and all of it's reminding Sunny why she left Del Sol in the first place. Add to that trouble at her daughter’s new school and a kidnapped prized rooster named Puff Daddy, and Sunshine has her hands full. Enter sexy almost-old-flame Levi Ravinder and a hunky US Marshall, both elevens on a scale of one to blazing inferno, and the normally savvy sheriff is quickly in over her head. Now it’s up to Sunshine to juggle a few good hunky men, a not-so-nice kidnapping miscreant, and Doug the ever-pesky flasher. And they said coming home would be drama-free.

To be honest I was a bit nervous about this book after her great Charley Davidson series and if it would hold up to it. And I’m happy to report, yes, it does. It is different than Charley Davidson, but still very good in his own rights.

Admittedly, it took me about 5-10% to really get into it but then I really enjoyed it.

We get both POVs, Sunshine and her daughter Auri’s , which I really enjoyed. I loved it, and that way, sort of get two stories in one, but also the main plot combines the two.

The story is pretty fast –paced but still easy to follow and keeps you on your toes until the last page.

I loved Sunshine and Auri and their relationship, matter fact I liked all of the characters.  Both are super funny and smart and can hold their own, but also love to have a shoulder to lean on when needed.

I liked Levi but so far he was not my favorite and sometime came over more of an ass than anything, but maybe that will change the better we get to know him.

I did however like Cruz very much and can’t wait to see more of the two of them together, I think that will be so much fun. I think them with Jimmy will be a hoot.

Zee and Quincey were also super fun, but we do get more of Quincey, and I loved that and him.

I really enjoyed this book and the suspense, I wouldn’t caller it a thriller but most definitely suspense filled. We do get some nice twists and turns, some I saw coming but most not. Of course we get lots and lots of snark and humor which I loved filled and topped with some hunky sexy men and moments. But we also get some tender and heartbreaking moments in the mix.

While I loved most of the book there were some things I could have lived without. It felt off and unnecessary, looking back now.  The premonition for example.

I think I spotted a Charley Easter egg which I loved, but I can’t be too sure lol.

Overall, I think it was a great first book in a new series and I’m looking forward to reading more now that we have most of the introductions of main story line and characters out  of the way .

I rate it 4 ★
