Audiobook Review: Distorted Loyalty by: Stacy Eaton (author) Marie Rose(narrator) Chris Chamberlain (narrator)
Distorted Loyalty - Stacy Eaton,Marie Rose, Chris Chamberlain

 

She thought she understood love. Turns out she knew nothing at all. I was drawn to Distorted Loyalty by two things. The complicated plot and the dual narration. Stacy Eaton weaves an intricate tale of betrayal, pain and new beginnings that is realistically profound. Rachel and Grant are caught up in a firestorm. There is no dousing the flames of emotional revelations, temptation and heartache headed their way. Rose and Chamberlain are a dynamic duo when it comes to tugging at the heart.

Above the Star - Alexis Marie Chute

I received this book for free from the publisher (SparkPress) as part of a promotional blogger unboxing campaign. 

 

 

This is probably the most unique book I have read so far this year. 

 

Up until I got about halfway through the book I thought it was weird. It was odd and bizarre, kind of in a Roald Dahl way, but stranger. It took me a while to get used to it and the world. I’ve never encountered a world quite like this one before, so there was definitely a learning curve. 

 

One thing that really threw me for a loop early on was the amount of death in this book. I wasn’t expecting there to be so much of it and for it to be somewhat gruesome. 

 

But once I got used to the peculiarities of the book, I started to really enjoy it. This book follows the typical quest storyline, but it was still a lot of fun. 

 

As for the characters, it was interesting to see a grandfather as a main character in YA book. You don’t see that too often. I think my favorite character was Lady Sophia. She was a supporting character but she was so funny! 

 

I also really liked the illustrations in the book. There is a hand drawn map of the world and various sketches that the character, Ella, draws dispersed throughout the novel. 

 

The glossary at the end was a nice touch. It was super helpful in figuring out how the world worked. 

 

Even though it took me a while to get into it, I’m really excited for the rest of the books in this trilogy!

The Second Blast of the Trumpet: The Second Book In The Knox Trilogy - Marie Macpherson

Usually in trilogies, novels start losing their pace during the second instalment. However, this is not the case with The Second Blast of the Trumpet. It picks up right where the first instalment ends.

 

We re-join - the not so young by now - John Knox soon after he was set free from serving his sentence as a galley slave. His fervour and his determinations to bring about a reformation to his beloved Scotland are stronger than ever and he is ready to preach. But he continues to come across political and religious boulders that obstruct his way to glory. We follow him on his journey through England to Switzerland and back and watch him develop into the man who will bring about the Protestant Reformation in Scotland. 

 

Marie MacPherson skilfully continues to lift the curtain on the not so well known part of John Knox's life and his influence on people around him, especially women.  The novel is not short of historical characters such as Marie de Guise, William Cecil and John Calvin and the political intrigue that took place behind closed curtains. I will admit - it was refreshing to read a novel that expresses what the other side thought of the Tudors and their politics. :D

 

I had a privilege to read the book in its draft form and thoroughly enjoyed it in its print form as well. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction.

Fool for Love (Gansett Island #2) by Marie Force
Fool for Love - Marie Force

 

 

When the heart is at the wheel there is no set route. There are always surprises in store and lessons to be learned. Just ask Janey and Joe. She holds his heart, but is clueless on what to do with it. He knows her soul and wants to heal the pieces of her broken heart. Fool for Love is the epitome of life. A never ending cycle of lessons to be taught and emotions in need of exploration. Gansett Island is the perfect destination for romance.
