Camp Half-Blood Confidential: Your Real Guide to the Demigod Training Camp - Rick Riordan
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I love the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. This book was just an okay addition to it though. As others have said, it's basically just trying to get more money out of the series. It doesn't really add much. It's just a collection of stories, interviews, and skits. Some are clever, but many of them are kind of dull. 

The overall idea for the book is interesting. It's basically a combination of the original welcome video made by Apollo and an updated collection made by current campers and staff members. Great idea. But the actual result is kind of dumb and boring at times. 

It's also kind of weird listening to as an audiobook. Interviews are kind of confusing in this format. Although I did liked listening to Jesse Bernstein sing the musically sketches. 

Okay read for fans of Percy Jackson, but I wouldn't say it's a must-read. Just a decent companion book for die-hard fans who want to have the complete series.

Lord of Secrets (Rogues to Riches #5) by Erica Ridley

Lord of Secrets - Erica Ridley 

~3.5 stars ~

As an heir to a barony, Heath knows he must choose the right woman to marry. She’ll have to be a proper lady of a good family, and will never, ever give motive for scandal or gossip. So what if he’s not in love with the lady, right?

Heath in a way reminded of Mr. Darcy although not as brooding or surly. Honor bound to a fault, his first priority was always his family and his duty to the title. As the problem-solver of the ton, he considered his responsibility to keep his peers out of the gossip columns and pursue those that dared taint their “good” name. This attitude of him grated me because how could anyone be so honorable yet try to cover up other people’s mistakes. To me that was hypocritical. Fortunately, love outweighed any preconceived notions of honor and he found his true calling.
Nora had a secret of her own that if uncovered it could not only ruin her but also ruin her chances at love. I thought she was sweet, smart, and witty however I could totally see why she didn’t think highly of herself. It made me a happy reader when Heath saw past all of her shortcomings and focused on what mattered most. Their romance was engaging and slow-burning with the right amount of tension which made it feel believable.

Although there weren’t any tug-at-your-heart moments it was definitely enjoyable and a good continuation to the series. I recommend this series to anyone that likes endearing yet complex characters, funny moments, and good romance. 

Thanks to Negalley for providing a copy of this story for review.

Review! Half-Blood Dragon (Dragon Born Saga #1) K.N. Lee!
Half-Blood Dragon: Book One of the Dragon Born Trilogy - K.N. Lee,Cait Reynolds

 

 

New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee presents Half-Blood Dragon, the first epic fantasy adventure in the Dragon Born Trilogy.

 

*Revised & lengthened with a bonus chapter!*

 

Pirates, dragons, mermaids. Embark on a coming of age journey that will leave you breathless.

 

A lady-in-waiting's job is to follow orders. For Rowen, it is to execute her stepfather's plan to elevate the family's station by an advantageous marriage to the crown prince. Intrigue and seduction fill Rowen's days, but the prophecies that haunt her dreams at night warn her that death awaits.

 

The taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and sentenced to death for the prince's murder.

 

For a human, there’s nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters.

 

It will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. It is time for Rowen to find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift, and set the world on fire.

 

Change is coming. So is a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world.

 

 

Embarking on this breathless and fascinating journey is one that will readers will certainly enjoy as it brings pirates, dragons, sorcerers and even mermaids to brilliant and vivid life.

 

Rowen is planning to elevate her family’s status by marrying the crown prince, but prophecies haunt her dreams, intrigue and seduction fill her days and death awaits. Change is coming with a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world and Rowen will have to accept her fate, awaken her gift and set the world on fire.

 

The characters are strong, captivating and easily enchant readers into their world full of thrilling suspense, excitement and daring plots that keep readers on the edge of their seat during this steady to fast paced plot. Most of the story is all about the intrigue which keeps ensures readers never have a dull moment as they try to determine what will happen next especially since it is filled with startling twists that cause astounding changes to Rowen’s life. There is also quite a bit of emotional issues that ensures that readers feel as if they understand the characters and which certainly adds depth to the story as Rowen faces prejudice, danger, and destiny. There’s not a whole lot of romance in this part of the story, although there is the seduction of the Crown Prince which is essential to Rowen’s stepfather’s plans.

 

The characters and the world are well developed and the author described the world and her characters vividly so it made is easy for me to imagine each and every scene as I became caught up in the story. The author did end the story at a decent point, but the story does have a cliffhanger as it is part of a saga, so I am looking forward to discovering what happens next in Rowen’s world.
