5 Worlds Book 2: The Cobalt Prince - Mark A. Siegel,Alexis Siegel,Boya Sun,Matt Rockefeller,Xanthe Bouma

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

Great followup to the first book. The pacing of this book seemed a bit faster than the first one, probably because there was less set up required and the majority of the characters were already established. 

As with the first one, the illustrations were gorgeous and amazing. I instantly fell in love with Ram Sam Sam the moment I saw him. What an absolute cutie. There are also some great fight scenes in this one that are well composed. 

Also like the first one, the story is a little choppy at times. It's a bit tricky because there are so many layers of deception that it gets a little hard to follow, but it does make for an interesting story.

Can't wait to get my hands on book three. I am loving this series.

5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior - Boya Sun,Matt Rockefeller,Xanthe Bouma,Mark A. Siegel,Alexis Siegel

It took me a little bit to get into this one, but on the whole it was a fantastic read. There were some parts that were a bit choppy or vague, which made it a little difficult to get my barrings at the start. As the story went on though, I really got caught up in the characters, history, and environments created in this book. Wonderful world-building and I especially liked the folklore elements. 

The characters were really interesting as well. An Tzu was instantly fascinating to me and I want to learn more about his backstory. I also really liked Jax, although his secret is pretty obvious right from our first up close and personal meeting with him. I could have done without Oona's constant self deprecation, but I get how it impacted the story. I do really hope Fern makes appearances in the other books in the series.

Overall, I thought this was a great intro book to the series. When I first started it, I wasn't sure if I would continue reading them, but three-fourths of the way in, I knew this was something I wanted to see to the end.

The Flavors of Other Worlds
The Flavors of Other Worlds: 13 Science Fiction Tales from a Master Storyteller - Alan Dean Foster

by Alan Dean Foster


Another great collection of stories from Alan Dean Foster! This one is 13 stories all well into the science fiction genre. We have aliens taking over the planet through corporate buy outs, bootleg knowledge, alien assistants, and we even get to learn how to communicate with a cuttlefish.


Foster's writing is always good and his inventive plots are way above par. This collection has a nice variety of stories that are well up to his usual standard, exploring other worlds whether they are in space or under sea.


Highly recommended for any science fiction fan.

Book Review for Donna Grant's IGNITE in her Dark Kings Series.
Ignite (Dark Kings #15) - Donna Grant


Let's start off by saying we really loved this story and we are really enjoying this ongoing series with these amazing characters that we could not help but, fall in love with and that we just love Donna Grant and her amazing books !

We love Claire and Vlad aka V's story from beginning to end.We found the story to be hilarious also that it had fun characters who had a sense of humor, was intriguing, and was suspenseful and had a story that had tons of twists and turns and a lot of the unknown.This plot is ongoing and every time you started figuring things out there was yet another surprise.The story was filled with a ton of betrayal as well as not knowing who to trust .There are a lot of players who normally are enemies are now aligning themselves with one another to take out one common enemy.

I found Claire to be funny and beautiful inside and out,a keeper of secrets and she had a great sense of humor,was daring and a hopeless romantic trying to find the one in all the wrong places.Perhaps she was a bit lonely and frustrated but , she starting blogging to vent those frustrations and well let's just say her posts were more than entertaining.

Vlad- aka V Let's just say we loved him from the onset of the story.He was sexy and sweet and kind funny and had a sense of humor, a bit lonely and lost and had the wait of the world on his shoulders.A Dark King who felt he didn't fit in this new world he is now living in but, that all changed when he caught a glimpse of a sexy blond who he couldn't seem to stay away from.We loved how Claire reminded Vlad who he was and what he stood for and just how very dangerous and powerful he really is and that is was more then capable of standing against their enemy who threatened the life they have created along with their mates as well as their families.

We loved that V and Clarie's courtship was full of fun and laughter and that they had this amazing chemistry and not only were the were lovers they were friends first and foremost .We loved that Claire eased his loneliness and vice versa.

I know this story had a lot of mixed reviews but, for us we were one of those who just loved this sweet and emotional romance tale with those sexy dragon shifters that we just adored but, most of all we loved those character's who made the story intriguing and fun and more than once had us laughing out laughed and that they made us tear up a time of two.

Looking forward to what is going to happen next as the story left us wanting and with a whole lot of unanswered questions and we can't wait to get them!
