Cipher (The Shadow Ravens Book 1)
Cipher (The Shadow Ravens Book 1) - Aileen Erin When Cipher was eight years old she saved her best friends life and she has been on the run ever since. She is on the run from uncle who has given the order to kill on the spot. Cipher has a special power where she can conduct electricity that she tries to keep hidden. If she uses her powers then it lets her uncle and whoever may be looking for her know where she is.

Cipher is a hacker and is very good at what she does but she has been known to have gotten caught on occasion though and has fried a few com’s in her life just imagine what she could do to a person. This is one of the reasons Cipher has always stayed to herself and never interacted with people much she is afraid of hurting someone and she never ever wants to do that.

Knight has been looking for Emma ever since that eventful night when she saved his life only he doesn’t know that the girl that he plays computer games with online and sells his famous processors to is the same girl that he has been looking for all these years.

Knight wants to save Emma/Cipher and all the Red Helix girls like Cipher too. When Knight finally finds Cipher they team up along with the rest of Knights friends to find the other girls like Cipher who has special abilities.

I have wanted to read The Shadow Ravens for a long time so when I got the invite from YA Bound Books Tours for a blog tour and review imagine how ecstatic I was. I couldn’t wait to get started on reading Cipher. I loved Cipher’s world with her ability to hack and conduct electricity. Cipher is filled with lots of action that will keep you on the edge of your seat with the adrenaline pumping waiting to see what is around the corner. I can’t wait now to start the next book Quanta.

If you have not read Cipher then let me suggest that you do, that is if you love a good dystopian, science fiction book with a little romance on the side.

York: The Shadow Cipher
York: The Shadow Cipher - Laura Ruby,Dave Stevenson

Tess and Theo live in a Morningstar Building in New York City. The Morningstar Twins came to New York in the late 18th century, revolutionized the city with their innovative buildings and technology, and then vanished, leaving behind a trail of clues to inherit their secrets.

150 years later no one has yet successfully solved the puzzle the Morningstars left behind. While many things are different about this New York City, but real estate is still a cutthroat business. Tess and Theo are twins who are lucky enough to live in one of the original Morningstar buildings, the apartment being passed down through their family. Unfortunately the building has attracted the attention of a ruthless developer who has the means to buy the building and for out Tess and Theo and all of their neighbors. Feeling that their only hope is to follow the clues and solve the mystery, the twins team up with their new friend and neighbor Jaime Cruz. Astonishingly they stumble upon a lead. Is it too good to be true, and is the price of solving the Morningstar's puzzle worth the reward?

This was a lot of fun to read and its clear Ruby is planning on a long game with this series, laying out a lot of crumbs to entice future readers. I was disappointed in the small number of puzzles and opportunities to get involved in the game. Still, an entertaining read and decent character development for this level. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the sequel!

Ravenspur: Rise of the Tudors - Conn Iggulden
The Cost of Discipleship - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
A Corpse in Cipher: A Tudor Murder Mystery (The Elspet Stafford Mysteries) (Volume 1) - Lizzy Drake
The Sunne in Splendour - Sharon Kay Penman
Buried in a Bog - Sheila Connolly
Jane Shore - Mary Bennett

Most of these books I have already started, & I don't really know where I'm going to go from there. I downloaded Buried in a Bog because I wanted a simple cozy mystery to listen to, but this is bland and I don't like the main character. I also thought about a light Christian fiction book, but I don't know why all my library's Christian audio books are Amish stories. What I really need is the rest of the Three Pines series on audio! Anyway, the rest of this list will probably be filled out by whatever I find to listen to. I'm not a good planner this month.  ;-)

Cipher
Cipher - Aileen Erin The story of Cipher and Knight (or Emma and Hunter) was pretty good, but it really didn't go into any depth on either of their stories. Will the next book tell us more about them or will it be the story of another Red? Each person seems to have a different type of magic, which is identified by their tattoos. If your tattoo identifies you as a Red, you are considered dangerous and people start hunting you to try to either kill you or put you in a lab to study you. I liked the story of their relationship, but the rest of the story was a bit weak. I'm hoping that the supporting structure is drawn in a bit better in the second book coming out next month. And that we get to meet the mysterious Lady Eva.

Cipher - Moira Rogers

Kat and Andrew finally together! Kat finally has full self-acceptance. The deaths were sad, but furthered the story line. I probably would have enjoyed this immensely more, if it hadn't been 2 years since reading book 3 (Deadlock).
