Sacrifice of Mine by Janeal Falor
Sacrifice of Mine (Mine #4) - Janeal Falor

The final book in the story of Chardonia is a sad one. Bethany has been captured, tarnished, and finds herself in a very very very very (I can't say enough very's here) bad place. But she's also in a good place to try and help the resistance from within the heart of Chardonia. But a lot of lives will be placed on the line because of it.

Unfortunately, the editing errors in this one were really bad. There were times I think she mixed up the two countries of Chardonia and Envado, because otherwise parts just wouldn't make sense. The ending was also a little off. It seemed to just "poof" wrap up with a nice bow. Yes, there was a lot leading up to it, but once we got to the top, it just all dropped off really fast.

I really enjoyed this series. It leans more towards a fantasy than a romance, but each story had a nice little romance that weaves through it and really made a different set of characters stand out in a nice way.

Mine to Fear by Janeal Falor
Mine to Fear - Janeal Falor

This series takes a very dark turn in Mine to Fear. Things are not going well, and I'll warn you, the story arc does not end well. We do have a fairly decent HEA for the romance side, but the realm Chardonia is in chaos and it only gets worse.

The people of Envado are trying desperately to change things, and they are losing the battle. The Grand Chancellor is taking the country in hand by making drastic and severe changes that puts the lives of many at risk. It's scary, very scary, and you don't see much light at the end of the tunnel.

Waverly finds herself caught up in the war as she tries to free her friends from the tyranny of the Grand Chancellor and his friends that are determined to keep women and magic under the control of a very select male population. There's a lot to  read between the lines here, and it was done very well.

My biggest complaint, and Mine to Fear may have gotten 5 stars without this, is the editing. There were some areas that were quite poorly done and it really did take away from my ability to just read the story. But it is one hell of a story.

Great Story and Characters
You Are Mine (Mine Series, Book 1) - Janeal Falor

Serena belongs to a warlock. She has to do whatever he wishes or suffer the consequences. Then she is sold again and once again has to do her new master's bidding. Then she breaks the rules, expecting to be punished, but isn't.
I loved Serena's journey in this book. I found it very interesting as I was raised free. Even if in a fantasy way as there are still women in this world that aren't free, it still gave me some insight. I really liked the plot, overall story and especially the characters. I highly recommend.

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

Mine to Spell by Janeal Falor
Mine to Spell (Mine #2) - Janeal Falor

Mine to Spell is book two in the Mine series set in Chardonia - a country whose women are slaves and must obey every whim of their warlock masters. I briefly met Cynthia in the first book, she is Serena's younger sister and next in line to be sold. Seeming to accept her fate, she launches herself into the process only to find herself becoming a victim to one of the warlock's darkest secrets.

Using a secret of her own, she manages to gain her freedom - and lands herself in another mess. Cynthia seems to be great at finding herself in a mess. But she's determined to prove she can find her own way out.

Most of the story revolves around the quickly disintegrating situation for women in Chardonia and Cynthia's fight to prove they are just as good as the warlocks. But along the way she does find a bit of romance. It's not the main part of the story, but an important element as Cythina grows and develops her secret - I really want to tell you all what it is, but that would completely ruin the big reveal in the book.

I'm excited to see what happens next to the women of Chardonia. I saw that book three, Mine to Fear, is coming out this month, and I think it will going into my cart as soon as I see it in paperback. While each individual story may not have a 5 star rating, this world Janeal Falor has created is addictive.

Mine to Tarnish by Janeal Falor
Mine to Tarnish - Janeal Falor

Katherine was a very intriguing character in book one. The tarnished who wasn't a tarnished - a strong woman helping the unfortunate while being unfortunate herself.

Her story was a stragen mix of sad and hope. She does not have her happily ever after that we see in many fantasies, but by the end we see that she is where she needs to be and she's glad to be there helping.

It was also another look into a very well developed and curious world that Janeal Falor has created.
