review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-06-19 17:29
Loved it a lot more than the first one!!!!!!
Now I Rise (The Conqueror's Trilogy) - Kiersten White

I really loved this one was really a lot of killings in this one.

I really enjoyed Radu in this one, but I wish he wouldn't be so loyal to Mehmen. I just don't understand what Radu or Lada sees in that guy at all. I don't even like when his in the book he makes me sick!!!!! 

Speaking about Lada I still have a love hate relationship with her at the end of this book, just like in the first one. I can understand why she does what she does in this book, but I don't like innocence individuals getting killed. No matter if there babies, young kids, men, women, etc. 

I really like Cyprian, and I hope his in the next book, and that he doesn't die or Radu for that matter. Because I would love if those two would get together at the end. I also really like Nicolae on Lada's part of the story, as well as Stefan. I am not sure how I feel about Bogdan at this point. 

I really can't wait to see what happens next, so is going to die and who will survive in the end!!!! I hope Radu's "wife" Nazira. survives as well!!!! 

Thanks so much to the publisher, Author, and the website NetGalley for the approval of this book, when I requested it. My opinion is mined completely and no one else's!!!!

Reading progress update: I've read 28%.
Now I Rise (The Conqueror's Trilogy) - Kiersten White

Pretty good, and so far I am liking it better then the first one. I have a love hate relationship with Lada. Not a lot of fighting yet, but plenty of plotting. Can't wait to see how this one ends, will Lada become what she's always wanted to be, can't wait to see if its answered in this book. More to come later.

DNF at 16%.
Rise of the Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers--Book 1) - Morgan Rice

I'm bored.

 

The first chapter showed promise, but I started feeling like I was reading off a Fantasy template and just couldn't get involved in the story.

#25 - The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die) - Danielle Paige

It was a nice continuation to the series. Some parts were weird and I could not really understand what the author was trying to do... but the story is not over, so I guess I will have some answers in the next books.

 

I love seeing new characters, and I love the fact that I could identify them. I'm not done with the original Oz books yet, I still have a bunch to read. But it was nice to meet the daughter of the Rainbow and Button Bright. I really, really love this retelling (almost as much as I love the original story... almost)!

 

This second book was not as great as the first one though (and was also way shorter), but it was still really pleasant. I'm excited about the rest of the series!

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
Rise of the Branded (The Scar of the Downers Book 2) - Scott Keen

Rise of the Branded
Scott Keen
(Scar of the Downers, #2)
Publication date: November 22nd 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Pursued into the wild by the soldiers of Ungstah, former slave Crik and the other freed Downers encounter the magical and terrifying nature of their world. They face spectral Shepherds, man-eating Rukmush, and the ancient giants of the earth. When two of their group are captured, Crik is distraught and powerless.

Meanwhile back in the city, Durgan, former Captain of the King’s Guard who allowed Crik and his friends to escape from Ungstah, is now a Downer, one of the Branded. Amid the murmurings of an uprising among the Branded, Durgan just wants to be left alone to search for his missing son. But in the process, he discovers how dark the powers of Sulfus the king truly are. Durgan must take a stand in the coming war between the Branded and the powerful armies of Sulfus.

To kill any hope of escape for the city’s Branded, the army comes after Crik and his friends to make an example of them. The answers for Durgan, Crik and freedom for all Downers lie hidden in the dark recesses of the Northern Reaches, in the treacherous places Crik and his companions are about to enter.

My Review

Just like the first book I really loved the friendship between Crik and Jak, even though there more like brothers. This one had a lot of even more things happening, then the first book. 

One character that is really interesting me in this book is a guy by the name of Durgan. In the first book something happened and him and his wife became a Downer, if you read the book or the description above you'll know what he did. I am really interested in what is going to happen to him and his wife. 

There are so many other interesting individuals in this series. I feel really bad about things that happened to Crik in this book. I really hope things work out for both Crik and Jak in the end.

I have to say I think after this book, the next book is probably going to be pretty explosive, and very action pack. So I can't wait to find out when the next book will be available, because I will definitely be wanting to read it as soon as it's available. I really want that book in my greedy little hands right now. But I will try and be a good girl and wait, but it will definitely be hard.

I am so glad I voluntarily requested to take part in this awesome book blog tour, it was a lot of fun.
