The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic / Emily Croy Barker
The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic - Emily Croy Barker

Nora Fischer’s dissertation is stalled and her boyfriend is about to marry another woman.  During a miserable weekend at a friend’s wedding, Nora wanders off and walks through a portal into a different world where she’s transformed from a drab grad student into a stunning beauty.  Before long, she has a set of glamorous new friends and her romance with gorgeous, masterful Raclin is heating up. It’s almost too good to be true.

Then the elegant veneer shatters. Nora’s new fantasy world turns darker, a fairy tale gone incredibly wrong. Making it here will take skills Nora never learned in graduate school. Her only real ally—and a reluctant one at that—is the magician Aruendiel, a grim, reclusive figure with a biting tongue and a shrouded past. And it will take her becoming Aruendiel’s student—and learning magic herself—to survive. When a passage home finally opens, Nora must weigh her "real life" against the dangerous power of love and magic.

 

Not quite what I was anticipating—which is a bit of an issue when the book is over 500 pages!

Under normal circumstances, I adore books which include the Fae, which this one does. Nora, our main character, bumps into an odd guy on campus and he rather obscurely grants her wish for a complete change of pace in life. One assumes that he is a member of this book’s Faitoren who was inhabiting our world, instead of the alternate world that Nora is transported to.

This is very much an alternate reality book—like Stephen Donaldson’s Thomas Covenant series, H. Beam Piper’s Paratime novels or Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. In this iteration, Nora gets transported into a rather medieval world which relies on magic rather than technology. Of course, she discovers some facility for magic, which saves her life from being total drudgery.

One of my main issues was the character of Aruendiel, the magician who rescues Nora from the Faitoren and assumes responsibility for her in this very, very patriarchal world. He’s no Dumbledore or Gandalf—he’s cranky, prejudiced, and arrogant. His relationship with Nora is a very reluctant one, consisting more of feeling responsible for her than any affection. Then when the balance seems to twist towards Aruendiel wanting more of their relationship, he isn’t willing to unbend enough to verbalize it, leaving Nora really to twist in the wind, wondering if she’s imagining things. Just to confuse things even more, Aruendiel seems to try fairly often to foist her on other men as a wife or he is searching for a “window” to send her home to her own reality. There’s a limited amount of speculation about the magician’s age and I gained the feeling that he was way too old to be a viable love-interest for Nora.

There is some exploration of the notion that Nora, coming from our reality, doesn’t act enough like a (subservient) woman in the magic time line. But the chances to explore the nature of the relations between men and women gets short shrift (except on the many occasions when Nora is pissed off about it). She basically works like a galley slave on Aruendiel’s estate except when he grants her special privileges to study or practice magic.


Although Nora ends up feeling attracted to Aruendiel, I just couldn’t feel the basis for it. He was too old, too arrogant, too prejudiced against women. I could understand some respect for him as a teacher (although he didn’t seem to be all that great an instructor, honestly), but beyond that was beyond my ability to suspend my disbelief.

Nevertheless, there’s a lid for every pot and I’m sure that this book will suit a lot of readers better than it did me.

Release Day Review Doubletake! Summoned To the Thirteenth Grave (Charley Davidson #13) Darynda Jones!

 

 

Hello, Readers! Today is the release day for Summoned To the Thriteenth Grave - the final book in the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones, so I thought I would share purchase links & repost my review! Enjoy!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series! 

 

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plane for eternity—which is exactly the amount of time it takes to make a person stark, raving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer. 

 

She’s missed her daughter. She’s missed Reyes. She’s missed Cookie and Garrett and Uncle Bob. Now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine for a broken heart? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

OMG! What an explosive and stunning conclusion to the Charley Davidson world! While readers may be disappointed that the series is ending, there is no way for readers to be disappointed in this climatic ending that is such an unexpected outcome! Readers also can’t help but agree that ending the series with the thirteenth book is quite appropriate as the number thirteen has such notoriety to it. The strong, bold characters of this series have continuously wowed readers with fun, sass, and thrills throughout this excellent series and they fulfill their reputation in the final book as they all come together to save the world.

 

The relationship between Reyes and Charley has always been unique and passionate and the conclusion of this book keeps that tradition going which invokes numerous emotions from readers but they have to admit that it is quite fitting. As always, the story is full of adrenaline pumping suspense, excitement and sass that readers have come to love although this book may actually surpass the overall explosive and thrilling feel of the previous stories. Maybe that’s because the series is ending or maybe it’s because of the whole world ending danger that flows throughout this fast paced story. While readers may be sorry to see Charley go, they can’t wait to find out what the author has in store for readers next.

Release Day Reviews X 2! Poppy & Primrose (Hidden Realms of Silver Lake #1 &2) Vella Day!

 

 

Today, is the release day for the 1st two books in Vella Day's Hidden Realms of Silver Lake: Four Sisters of Fate series and I am going to share a spotlight & my reviews for both! Enjoy and don't forget to add to the books to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOKS

 

 

Poppy has one goal--not to use her goddess magic for two weeks. How hard can it be?

 

Poppy Faiten, one of the four goddesses of Fate, was stoked to leave town and pretend to be a human for two weeks. The lack of responsibility thrilled her--until Slade LaMont walked into the diner where she was working. Holy moly. Waves of lust and yearning swamped her. But how could that be? A goddess of Fate was supposed to help other mates stay together, not have one herself. But here he was, so thank you, Fate. This dragon shifter was out of this world hot--and she was determined to land him.

 

Slade took one look at Poppy and fell into instant lust. It didn't matter his dragon was convinced she was the one for him. He didn't believe in mates. Besides, he didn't have time for one. He had a hotel to build--a hotel that might make Poppy walk away.

One shy goddess. One very hot human ski instructor. What will it take to bring these two mates together?

 

Primrose Faiten couldn't believe it. Here she was one of the goddesses of Fate, convinced she'd spend eternity alone, and guess what? She meets her dream man. The problem is this gorgeous mortal is human, and he'll never accept her once he finds out her secret identity.

 

As luck would have it, a snowstorm strands these two skiers in a warm cozy cabin. Jackpot! Primrose might be the shy one in the family, but when presented with this once in a lifetime opportunity, no way will she squander it.

 

Rafe Tremont might be highly attracted to the sexy, yet naïve woman, but he can never let his heart rule--not until he deals with some unfinished business that might keep him from Primrose forever.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Goddesses of Fate are supposed to help other mates stay together, not have a mate of her own but waves of lust and yearning swamp Poppy Fiaten when Slade LaMont walked into the diner where she was working.

 

Poppy and Slade are two strong, vivid characters that easily draw readers into their story with a delightful and sizzling romance. The plot is fast paced and energetic which keeps readers turning the pages while the relationship between Poppy and Slade progress with a few hiccups along the way and a bit of thrills.

The story and the Sisters of Fate are fascinating and delightful, so while, the story is on the short side, it is a very charming read that I quite enjoyed.

 

 


 

Primrose has met her dream man but there is one problem…he’s human and he’ll never accept her if he finds out her secret identity.

 

The second story is fast paced and also, on the short side, but it is well worth the read and has a bit of suspense as Primrose discovers a way to help Rafe with his unfinished business and there is a thrills to be found as Primrose learns to ski and a snowstorm strands the two in a cozy cabin (oooh, la, la). Primrose and Rafe both are strong, captivating characters that readers can easily identify with and their romance is sweet and on the fun side with sizzling chemistry in this charming and fascinating paranormal world.

REVIEW! Ember's Kiss (Dragonfire #9) Deborah Cooke!

 

 

Today, I am visiting the world of the Pyr once again, and this time they are in Hawaii where only woman can persuade Bradon to embrace his powers. Enjoy Ember's Kiss & my 5 Lightning Bolts review & don't forget to add it to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Only one woman can persuade him to embrace his powers.

Brandon Merrick is determined to banish his shifter nature forever. The charismatic tattooed surfer is on the cusp of the ultimate challenge - to prove himself on the whitecaps of Hawaii and secure his future as a pro surfer. But his dragon isn't prepared to be tamed so easily...

 

One look at marine biologist Liz Barrett ignites the spark of the firestorm: Liz is his destined mate and his chance for happiness. While Brandon sees their first night together as just the beginning, his dragon seizes the upper hand. Awakening in the company of a raging dragon challenges Liz's ability to believe her own eyes. Can Brandon accept his inner beast in time to make it work with Liz?

 

Neither one realizes that Brandon is caught in an ancient Slayer's scheme to enslave him. When the deadly plot ignites, the very island will be at risk...and Brandon and his mate could be the ultimate sacrifice.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This Dragonfire romance takes readers to Hawaii where they become caught up in spine chilling exploits and flames of passion. Brandon an Liz are two bold characters that stand out and they demand readers’ attentions from the very beginning. Both characters are suffering from an identity crisis, which impacts their present situation to dangerous degrees. Brandon has a kind of sexy, laid back personality but it so full of emotional turmoil that he can’t see the truth in front of him and Liz has a take charge and fix it personality but also is vulnerable to her secrets. While the romance is full red hot firestorm passion, this couple is so full of emotional issues that their happily ever remains questionable throughout, although after learning their stories, readers can blame them for the way they feel about the other parts of themselves.

 

The plot is fast paced and super charged with lots of thrilling suspense and explosive action that gives readers a vicarious thrill as they follow this couple along their dangerous journey toward their destiny. Betrayals, manipulations, goddesses and surprising twist add to all the excitement which includes an introduction of a new element to this series. A fascinating paranormal person that is unique and quite intriguing, one that compliments the Pyr. There is no way for readers to pick a favorite book out of this series because they are all so sexy, daring and full of wonderful elements that fascinates and Ember’s Kiss adds so much more to love and ensures that will readers will want to re-read this book often.

Keine roten Schuhe unter meinem Dach!
The Rules of Magic: A Novel - Alice Hoffman

Diese Frau hat was, über 30 Romane geschrieben?!?! Da darf man seine Erwartungshaltung wohl nicht zu hoch schrauben. Irgendwie ganz nett, aber leider nicht sonderlich aussagekräftig. Ich wundere mich immer ein bisschen, wenn ich nach der Hälfte des Buches denke: "Worum soll es hier eigentlich gehen?". Das war hier der Fall. Eigentlich ist nicht sehr viel (aussagekräftiges, bemerkenswertes) passiert. Es gab Familiendramen und Herzschmerz und dann waren alle alt. Tadaaaaaa.

Kann man unterwegs lesen, denn wenn man etwas unkonzentriert ist hat man eigentlich nicht viel verpasst. Es sei denn, der ganze tiefere Sinn der Geschichte ist vollkommen an mir vorbei gegangen, dann natürlich Asche auf mein Haupt.
