Burning Love By Jana Richards
Burning Love - Jana Richards

Jane Richards has done a great job with this cute Romance. Yes I said cute. This is a sweet love story with divine intervention. This is a clean book it mentions making love but does not give the details, their is also no foul language.

 

The book is narrated by Kathleen Miranti. She does a pretty good job with all the character voices. She does over enunciate a bit to much but other then that she does a great job.

 

Angelica is a Angel in training. She has managed to make a mess in every department they have put her in. They finally put her in the romance division under Hildegard her supervisor. Angelica's first case is Riley and Iris. They are soul mates and it is Angelica's job to get the 2 of them together, and prove herself to the higher ups in the Angel Division.

 

Iris Jensen gets evicted after starting a cooking fire in her apartment for the 3rd time. Now looking for a place to stay she ends up at Riley's house, looking to rent a room. She just needs a place to stay for 6 weeks until she starts working on a cruise ship.

 

Riley Benson is a firefighter. He knows all to well after putting out the fires in Iris's apartment, she would not be the best tenant. After a promise from iris that she will only be staying 6 weeks and will not touch the stove Riley agrees to let her stay.

 

Angelica and Hildegard try to work their magic to make Riley and Iris see that they are meant for each other. With only 6 weeks they need to work fast.

 

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Burning Page...
The Burning Page - Genevieve Cogman

So I have a couple of things I need to vent about...

 

One, I absolutely can not believe Irene kissed %$&#! I totally did not see that coming! I guess I should have though since she's a huge fan of "The Great Detective." She just couldn't resist that storyline. Lol  Sorry I'm a Dragon fan myself. : )

 

Second, I found it completely unbelievable that Irene did not realize Zayhanna's 'role' from the moment she showed up unannounced. Now that I did see! It came across as hasty and weak plot construction.

 

And what's up with Albreicht- is he or isn't he?? I'm sure I already know the answer to that but his story is starting to get old to me.

 

Lastly, what happened to Bradamant and the rest of the Librarians that were off preventing ways to stop Albreicht. They never did make an appearance at the end.

 

Also just to note, I switched from listening to the audio book to just reading the book because I didn't care for Susan Duerdon's performance in this one. Surprising a little because, I really liked her in The Rook but she just didn't do it for me in this one.

A Shadow Bright and Burning - Jessica Cluess

Ok, where to go with this review?? On one hand, the world building was rich and definitely unique. On the other hand, there were the characters...what a mixed bag. I enjoyed most of the characters. I even loathed and rankled in all of the appropriate places... BUT... I never fully fell in line with, or even truly liked, the MC which usually throws up HUGE warning signs for me. Henrietta wasn't dynamic or expressive (unless you accept self-hatred as a primary emotion to base a character on). She never demanded my loyalty, admiration or zeal and her powers seemed easily obtained- with few obstacles and a pittance of growing pains to boot. YES she read a lot on the subject BUT when she sought unorthodox outside help it just... worked... it dawned on her with no great effort and that is another BIG annoyance for me...it's like a relentless buzzing sound while I'm trying to concentrate type of annoyance. The betrayals were poignant but swayed and seesawed at the slightest of urgings. A character could flip on her and then back again with such ease it seemed implausible. She gained unbelievable alliances, especially ones who went to unrealistically extraordinary lengths to support her in the end. Ok, onto the monsters. They were the right amount of scary vs realistic (if such a thing could be possible in a Fantasy novel). I don't read many horror stories so take that last statement with a grain of salt, keeping in mind that I have been known to put down a book if there is too much gratuitous gore or rape or child harming. Thankfully ASBAB did not have much of the first, none of the second and gently alluded to the third. Even with the faux pas I listed (and some that I have the nagging suspicion I have forgotten) the book moved along swiftly with very few lagging spots. My attention did not waver and buzzing annoyances aside, this was a fun read. I will probably move on to book #2 but I feel compelled to say that ultimately, it did not live up to the great potential the synopsis intimated.

Fire wants to devour; when it's inside you, you find fuel, or you become fuel
Enna Burning - Shannon Hale

This second book switches gears from a very fairytale-feeling classic fantasy to something entirely new. A side character in book one steps into the spotlight when her struggles to contain the raging power of fire propel her into the midst of a war. Enjoyable, but also upsetting, the narrative is slightly more mature and 'teen' than book 1, with a gaslighting scoundrel of an enemy captain taking up a large amount of the runtime.
