Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
Fairly Certain (Love of Fairs) - Deborah Ann Davis
Young Adult Romantic Suspense Date Published: September 2015 Publisher: D&D Universe, llc
What happens when a Computer Geek challenges a Medieval Outlaw? PETIR TAKES A ROUGH TUMBLE IN THE CONNECTICUT WOODS, and awakens in the middle of old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow… and arrow. In his college world, fair maiden types don’t ordinarily go for computer geek types, but for some reason he is no longer in his world. Petir is fairly certain he can try whatever he wants without consequence. WITH THE CONFLICT BETWEEN THE ROYALS ESCALATING, MAID RIANNE has joined the outlaws hiding in the woods, outwardly defying the handsome and accomplished knight to whom she is promised. She is fairly certain she is simply flattered by Lord Petir’s uncensored admiration of her skills with the staff and bow, the same unmaidenly pursuits disdained by her knight. But, that does not explain her reaction to Lord Petir’s unguarded gaze. TO PETIR’S DELIGHT, AND MAID RIANNE’S DISMAY, the outlaws invite him to join their merry band. What better way to get close to her? Throwing caution to the wind, Petir decides he has nothing to lose by pursuing Maid Rianne, until she is captured by the enemy. Now, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.
My Review
I really liked the character of Petir, even though they way he talked about Rianne at times just drove me really crazy. I really enjoyed Rianne as well, I loved that she didn't let anybody tell her what she could or couldn't do. I thought the beginning was pretty bored, the middle had plenty of action, and the ending was definitely interesting. I thought the ending explained how Petir ended up were he did nicely. I loved what Petir's name really meant. I gave it only 4 out of 5 stars, just because while I thought everything at the end was explained pretty nicely, I just felted like something was missing. I just can't figure out what exactly that was. I think maybe I just wanted more excitement for the ending of the story. I really loved the characters and the Robin hood ties in the book. I would definitely recommend this book, I would warn you that parts of the book were pretty boring at times. But the plot I thought was pretty interesting and fun.

Still enjoying the book. One thing that drives me crazy is Petir always calling Rianne "Maid Hottie." And also he thinks his still just dreaming this whole thing up.

Already off to a pretty funny start to the book. Petir I am already falling in love with!!!! And Rianne is a very intriguing heroine. And I love when its a guy that goes into the past instead of a woman. Plus Petir is considered a nerd, and I love a guy with some nerdiest in him.

Storm of Arranon Book Tour Review
Storm of Arranon - R E Sheahan

 

 

 

 

Excerpt From Storm of Arranon - Booking One


Birk rolled on top of her. Leaves and twigs stuck in his dirty, windblown hair. Dust swirled. Debris from the windstorm dug into her back. He straddled her. One hand grasping her throat, he squeezed.
Erynn coughed, clawing at his hand, and arm.
Birk’s laugh rumbled low and menacing from deep in his chest. His strange pale eyes sparked and burned with anger. His arm drew back, hand fisted.
In Erynn’s peripheral vision, the jeweled dagger shimmered in the sunlight. Blue tendrils wound around her hands. She released the current. Energy arced through the air. Time slowed to a measured beat. She reached out, her fingers grasping through dirt, stems, and leaves, finding and clasping the hilt. Static popped in the air. Erynn lifted the dagger and swung the tip down, driving the point into Birk’s thigh.
Birk screamed and released his hold, rolling off her. He leapt up, holding his leg. Blood poured around his fingers. His eyes glazed over. “You’re dead,” he snarled, limping forward.

My Review

 

 

 I really thought the book was pretty good, going into the book I really didn't think I would like it as much as I did. It was just because it started out slow to me, and I wasn't sure if I was going to like the main character at all. I don't know what it is about Erynn but I just couldn't connect with her at the beginning but once I got to about 25 to 30% in she started to come alive for me. 

 

I loved the character of Jaer to me he was a man of mystery, I hope in the next book we find out more about his earlier life. I loved how he was when he was around Erynn and the way he treated her. 

 

While certain things were tied up in this book, there was something big that happened at the end of the book, that I am sure is really going to make the second book have more action and maybe even deaths then this one did.

 

I felt the villains in this book weren't very scary villains, but the big bad in the second book I hope is going to be a pretty scary one. 

 

After Erynn was kidnapped and the plane she was on crushed that's when Erynn came alive for me. So if you start the book and feel you might not be able to finish it, I would say give it a try until after the plane crashes. 

 

I really loved Erynn's friend Sean he was definitely my favorite side character and I really enjoyed their friendship. Another side character I liked was Erynn's other friend Tam. 

 

I was given this book for being part of a book tour, and just for the purpose of giving my honest opinion on how I felt about the book. The opinion comes from myself and no one else's.
