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.

 

 

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

*I received a free copy from the author and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

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: Meridian Chronicles: Fairy Nymphs & The Demon Court (#3) by M.D. Fryson
Meridian Chronicles: Fairy Nymphs & The Demon Court (#3) - MD Fryson

Meridian’s curse still haunts her after running back to Salem. Living with heartbreak, Aiden cannot go on without Meridian and flees with Tallulah to Salem.

Raina continues her deceit and willfully accepts possession from a demon of the high court, Pyro who commands Raina to kill one of the good witches.

Another trip to the dark realm brings another fight between the Fairy Nymphs and members of the Demon Court when they arrive to answer the dark one’s riddle, one that was not meant to answer.

When Meridian and Aiden accept the help of the Fairy Nymphs to unlock the Universe’s message of their fate, it is then that Meridian finds herself within the Hall of Souls where the Angels, known as the keepers have a message for her.

With Warrick still out to keep his position in Etheria, the demon court members staging their attack on the spirit guides, Aiden against all odds will not leave Meridian.

Aiden’s reoccurring dream is more significant that what he realizes until the very end, where an ironic twist of fate emerges testing his true love for Meridian and the road to saving her soul. Who will end up being Meridian’s twin soul? Is it Aiden? Will Warrick succeed and avoid his judgment? What is the message from the Angel? Find out in this dark paranormal romance.

Wow, this book is even better than the last one, each book gets better as we dive deeper and deeper into the world of Fairies, Demons, Spirits, Witches and much more.

I really love the character growth. Not only Meridian but everyone else as well. The story arc is also growing and we get deeper and deeper into their world and discover new and exciting but sometimes shocking things.

One of my favorite parts is that we get so many unique supernatural groups, all a bit different and yet the same as we read or heard about before, some have a nice unique spin to it.

It was all a bit overwhelming in the first book, with so many people and groups, but now it’s a breeze to read and follow along not to mention fun.

Some things we get answers to others we have to wait for the next book. We get plenty of action, twist and turns, and lots of snarky humor that I love.

Overall I really, really enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down and I will ever so patiently wait for the next book.

I rate it 5 ★

14061957

 

The capital has fallen.

The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

 

 

 

On Audio I'm listening to Summer Knight, the fourth book in The Dresden Files Series by Jim Butcher . I'm so in love with this series and could kick myself for not starting it sooner. 

 

91478

 

HARRY DRESDEN -- WIZARD

Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment

Ever since his girlfriend left town to deal with her newly acquired taste for blood, Harry Dresden has been down and out in Chicago. He can't pay his rent. He's alienating his friends. He can't even recall the last time he took a shower.

The only professional wizard in the phone book has become a desperate man.

And just when it seems things can't get any worse, in saunters the Winter Queen of Faerie. She has an offer Harry can't refuse if he wants to free himself of the supernatural hold his faerie godmother has over him--and hopefully end his run of bad luck. All he has to do is find out who murdered the Summer Queen's right-hand man, the Summer Knight, and clear the Winter Queen's name.

It seems simple enough, but Harry knows better than to get caught in the middle of faerie politics. Until he finds out that the fate of the entire world rests on his solving this case. No pressure or anything...

 

 

When I'm done with Ruin and Rising, I will go back to my review copies and start Council of Souls Jen Printy, Book two in the Fated Eternals Series.

 

36507373

 

After surviving the perils of an ancient family feud, Jack Hammond and Leah Winters believe only happiness lies ahead. However, their future isn’t as secure as they think. When Death and his council arrive to welcome Leah into their treacherous shadow world, the couple discovers that Leah’s immortality has come with a high price.

With Artagan’s help, Leah slowly learns how to navigate the dark waters of the Concilium Animarum—the Council of Souls. As their world starts to unravel further, their love is all Jack and Leah have left. Will that be enough?

Gimme Some Sugar by Molly Harper

 

 

 

 

A young widow returns to Lake Sackett, Georgia to face the ghosts of her past—and decide if she’s ready to take another chance on love—in the third sparkling Southern Eclectic novel that “goes down as easy as honey on a deep-fried Twinkie” (Library Journal, on Sweet Tea and Sympathy).

Lucy Brewer would never have guessed that her best friend, Duffy McCready (of McCready’s Bait Shop & Funeral Home) has been in love with her since they were kids. Fear of rejection and his own romantic complications prevented Duffy from confessing his true feelings in high school, so he stood by and watched her wed Wayne Bowman right after high school. Wayne had always been a cheapskate, so it comes as no surprise when he suffers a fatal accident while fixing his own truck.

Even as her family and friends invade Lucy’s life and insist that the new widow is too fragile to do much beyond weeping, Lucy is ashamed to admit that life without Wayne is easier, less complicated. After all, no one knew what a relentless, soul-grinding trudge marriage to Wayne had been. Only Duffy can tell she’s hiding something.

In need of a fresh start, Lucy asks Duffy to put his cabinet-building skills to use, transforming the town’s meat shop into a bake shop. As the bakery takes shape, Lucy and Duffy discover the spark that pulled them together so many years ago. Could this finally be the second chance he’s always hoped for?

Crimson Lake by Candice Fox

 

 

 

Crimson Lake, by Sydney-based, Ned Kelly Award-winning author Candice Fox, is a thrilling contemporary crime novel set in Queensland, Australia, perfect for readers of authors like James Patterson, Harlan Coben, Lisa Gardner, and Tana French.

How do you move on when the world won’t let you?

12:46: Claire Bingley stands alone at a bus stop

12:47: Ted Conkaffey parks his car beside her

12:52: The girl is missing . . .

Six minutes in the wrong place at the wrong time—that’s all it took to ruin Sydney detective Ted Conkaffey’s life. Accused but not convicted of a brutal abduction,Ted is now a free man—and public enemy number one. Maintaining his innocence, he flees north to keep a low profile amidst the steamy, croc-infested wetlands of Crimson Lake.

There, Ted’s lawyer introduces him to eccentric private investigator Amanda Pharrell, herself a convicted murderer. Not entirely convinced Amanda is a cold-blooded killer, Ted agrees to help with her investigation, a case full of deception and obsession, while secretly digging into her troubled past. The residents of Crimson Lake are watching the pair’s every move… and the town offers no place to hide.

Redemption Point by Candice Fox

 

 

 

 

When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting Claire Bingley, he hoped the Queensland rainforest town of Crimson Lake would be a good place to disappear. But nowhere is safe from Claire’s devastated father.

Dale Bingley has a brutal revenge plan all worked out – and if Ted doesn’t help find the real abductor, he’ll be its first casualty.

Meanwhile, in a dark roadside hovel called the Barking Frog Inn, the bodies of two young bartenders lie on the beer-sodden floor. It’s Detective Inspector Pip Sweeney’s first homicide investigation – complicated by the arrival of private detective Amanda Pharrell to ‘assist’ on the case. Amanda’s conviction for murder a decade ago has left her with some odd behavioural traits, top-to-toe tatts – and a keen eye for killers . . .

For Ted and Amanda, the hunt for the truth will draw them into a violent dance with evil. Redemption is certainly on the cards – but it may well cost them their lives . . .

Meridian Chronicles: Black Widow Curse The Coven by M.D. Fryson

 

 

 

MERIDIAN’S curse has left her in a state all her own of amnesia. The once spirit guide can only recall her name and the two names of very important beings in her life. She is on Earth lost and afraid with only fragments to piece together her mysterious circumstance. Her realm’s leader, Warrick and his curse have taken the unimaginable from her and her hidden memory has the answers locked away from her. Her best friend Relic, the peacock of the realm flees for Earth to save Meridian only to find nearly a stranger.

Tallulah, the psychic who has taken Meridian in calls in her connections from Salem. The Fairies have the answer to breaking the curse and it lies in finding Meridian’s twin flame and only the universe knows who that is. From Relic, to Aiden the boy on Earth whose name is one she can recall or Kieren her love crush she knew before her curse, could all be the answer. The catch is, there are far darker souls in the high demon court and the dark witches who have their own agenda.

The good witches on Earth band together with the spirit guides, the fallen and the fairies to save Meridian against the ultimate rivals the dark witches, the demons and Meridian’s own leader of her realm, Warrick. Time is of the essence and with Meridian’s soul and fate in the crosshairs, it is only Meridian who can truly save herself by finding her twin flame. With failed attempts and fear, the one she truly loves may still linger out of reach.

Storm Cursed by

 

 

 

In this new instalment in the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves . . .

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shapeshifter . . . And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn’t stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.

This book was soo much easier to get into, than the first now that I know the world and characters. I highly recommend you read book one first.

I really enjoyed this book, the story continues with a bunch of twist and turns and mega surprises and also some loses. But what I liked the most was the characters growth in this book.

 Meridian is now human and has no memory of her past life. Not only does she have to fight of evil, but also remember her past life and the curse all the while to learn to be human and what it means to be human. Of course there are some cringe worthy moments for her as a “new “ human ,but with help of friends, some new and some old she is adjusting and learning.  But there also some funny moment as Meridian has the same humor as she did before. She does adjust and learn rather quick some things other things take her a while to get used to or learn.

We learn more about the curse, and how to break it… is it even possible?!  …… We not only follow Meridian but also friends and Aiden and  most of everyone else we met, that must watch her stumble through a world she doesn’t know all the while she is danger.  They do what they can but there is only so much that they can do.  We also get some unlikely allies along the way.

One of the things I like, is that this world is rather unique and we get so many different type of supernaturals, one big world combined.

Overall I loved this book, the world building is huge but awesome and I love to learn along with my heroes, which is the case with this series.

The ending left us with a great cliff hanger and I can’t wait for next book in the series.

 I rate this book 5★
