Inferno Rising: The Blood King by Abigail Owen @AOwenBooks
The Blood King - Abigail Owen

I have read Abigail Owen’s The Shadowcat Nation Series, The Svatura Series,The Fire’s Edge Series and now, The Inferno Rising Series. I even met her at the RWA Convention in Las Vegas. I’ve tried to find the photograph, but I have so many and did a bad job of organizing, so I am on the case…I will find it.

 

NEW RELEASE: 8.25.20

 

The Blood King (Inferno Rising, #2)

MY REVIEW

 

I LOVE SKYLAR!

 

The Blood King is book II of the Inferno Rising Series and I am lovin’ every minute I am in their world. We have love and romance, danger and battles that have me flying the unfriendly skies, swooping, flipping, feeling the wind blowing through my hair, freezing, the feeling of freedom…well, everything has it’s good and bad. LOL

 

Saying Skylar is feisty is putting it politely. She doesn’t make it easy for anyone to get close to here but her sisters. They are Phoenix and they are highly desired for their abilities and because dragons believe whoever has a Phoenix will be high king.

 

Of course, I am looking for some romance…How about you? When Skylar meets Ladon Ormarr, the sparks start flying and never quit. I love how he ‘tames’ her. LOL Like that can be done. It won’t be easy , but they ride the rollercoaster of love to a happy ever after.

 

Maul, what can I say about Maul. Have you ever met a Hellhound? I love him!

 

Battles will be fought, lives will be lost. The battles are fierce, betrayal abounds, enemies become friends, new alliances are made, and their world becomes a better place. Saying a better place just popped into my head and I was going to change it, but seeing the place we live in now leaves me wanting, I’ll take fantasy land any day of the week.

 

I loved the haters to lovers premise, and the snarky banter, with sexual tension so thick you could cut it with a knife. BEWARE…it does get HOT.

 

I love that Abigail Owen has Skylar saying she had always wanted to fly with the Blue Angels. Now, as Sklyar watches the dragons in formation, she feels as if she is. I salute you Blues! They are very familiar to me. I love how she describes the dragons as moving together, like a flight of birds.

 

Well, this is the first time in a long time that I scrapped my notes and WINGED it. LOL

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of The Blood King by Abigail Owen.

Book review : Shacking up abby knox
Shocking up - abby knox

Aug 3-4

Sam may have a ranch to run, but he's not one to shirk his civic duties when he receives a jury summons in the mail. Fate, however, seems to be summoning him to the jury pool for entirely different reasons when a fellow juror half his age buddies up to him and refuses to leave him alone.

Nobody has ever stuck up for Wren before, who's been on her own since she was a teen. When the grouchy rancher, Sam, acts on his protective instincts on her behalf, Wren is sure beyond a reasonable doubt that he's meant to be hers for life.

Review : This book was really cute and sweet so this is about wren and sam who meet when they are doing jury duty . Sam is an old cowboy and Wren she is a girl who hasn't had a lot of people care about her . Sam and wren start to connect more and end up having sex . sam falls for wren and after there jury duty is over they plan to get married and move in together I loved it .

Quotes:
Some people read cowboy books. The lady in the row in front of us crochets baby blankets. Me? I listen to guys jerk it while I cross stitch cuss words and pictures of vaginas. I didn’t bring the current cross stitch project with me today, though. I can’t very well be stitching “Fuck Off” at the county courthouse,

Meet me in the room in five minutes.” “But I’m enjoying the movie,” I say, even though her whispers awaken the need in my body. “Sam.” “What? I am!” “I’ll be naked.” “See you in five minutes.”

We’ve got all the time in the world, sweet girl.”

Book review : The assassins blade Sarah j . Mass
The Assassin's Blade: The Throne of Glass Novellas - Sarah J. Maas

June 11-August 4

Contains all five novellas.

Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan's most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin's Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas - together in one edition for the first time - Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn's orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out.

Review :
Loved these prequels I cried I laughed
I have read these before but before I read throne of glass and its interesting to read after that I've read the first 3 books

Review:

The assassin and the pirate lord
Celaena and Sam are sent to deal with this pirate lord for their master but it turns out to be in slave trade so they free them . I love Celaena and sam 5/5

The assassin and the healer
Celaena meets a healer and helps her learn to fight and gives her money so she can get to a healer school I enjoyed it . 5/5

The assassin and the desert
Celaena is sent to the red desert to get the approval of the mute desert I really liked this story more the second time reading it Celaena becomes friends with Ansel who has been through a lot and with her hate poison the mute master and Celaena warns her to leave or else .
She gets the approval from the mute master 4/5

The assassin and the underworld
I loved this story Celaena ends up getting her own apartment and she's going to move out . Celaena sees sam and her and sam get closer in this one . Sam confess his love her Celaena. Arobynn sets her up to kill this guy who is dealing in slaves but it turns out it was a set up from Arobynn she tells him she's moving out and she pays him back and pays Sam's bill to . 5/5

The assassin and the empire
This story always makes me cry Celaena and sam are together and so cute and sweet they tell Arobynn they are moving away. They get a assassin job to kill these twisted and sick people. But sam gets killed by one of them . It was a trap and Celaena gets sent to the salt mine. Arobynn set it all up cause he was jealous of sam what a prick I hate him . 5/5

Quotes
This had better be important."
"Perhaps if you hadn't been reading all night, you wouldn't be so exhausted," snapped the young man seated across from her.”

Sam,” she murmured into his chest.

“Hmm?”

She peeled away from him, stepping out of his arms. “If you ever tell anyone about me embracing you... I'll gut you.

“Life isn’t easy, no matter where you are. You’ll make choices you think are right, and then suffer for them.”

I love you,” he repeated, shaking her again. “I have for years. But if I asked you to pick, you’d choose Arobynn, and I. Can’t. Take. It.”
“You’re a damned idiot,” she breathed grabbing the front of his tunic. “You’re a moron and an ass and a damned idiot." He looked like she had hit him. But she went on, and grasped both sides of his face. “Because I’d pick you.”

Why did you do it?"
He removed her hand from his cheek to kiss the tips of her fingers. “I get scared, too,” he murmured onto her skin. “You want to hear something ridiculous? Whenever I’m scared out of my wits, I tell myself: My name is Sam Cortland … and I will not be afraid. I’ve been doing it for years.”
It was her turn to raise her brows. “And that actually works?”
He laughed onto her fingers. “Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. But it usually makes me feel better to some degree. Or it just makes me laugh at myself a bit.”


Why did you do it?"

Arobynn's attention drifted back to the wagon, already a small dot in the rolling foothills above Rifthold. "Because I don't like sharing my belongings.”

Lifeboat 12
Lifeboat 12 - Susan Hood

Audience: Grades 4 & up

Format: Audiobook/Library

 

I shouldn't do it.

- first line

This book is based on a true story of kids that were travelling on the SS City of Benares to Canada to escape the Nazi bombing of London. When the ship is torpedoed, Ken (13) and other survivors are left on Lifeboat 12 in the middle of the ocean. It's the little details in this book that make it so impactful. Ken was supposed to be on a different lifeboat, the young woman who makes up stories for the boys, the one sailor who acts crazy to make everyone laugh.
The story is told in verse, so I recommend reading a written copy more than the audio (or maybe both together). The audio is very well done and I could hear the emphasis and lyricism in the narrator's voice. The story is compelling and shows the importance of believing in yourself and each other and joining together to survive. Highly recommended. A 6-8 Sunshine State nominated book for 2020-21.
