{Arc Review} Rule by Ellen Goodlett

Book Summary:
Three girls with three deadly secrets. Only one can wear the crown.
The king is dying, his heir has just been murdered, and rebellion brews in the east. But the kingdom of Kolonya and the outer Reaches has one last option before it descends into leaderless chaos.
Or rather, three unexpected options.
Zofi has spent her entire life trekking through the outer Reaches with her band of Travelers. She would do anything to protect the band, her family. But no one can ever find out how far she’s already gone.
Akeylah was raised in the Eastern Reach, surrounded by whispers of rebellion and abused by her father. Desperate to escape, she makes a decision that threatens the whole kingdom.
Ren grew up in Kolonya, serving as a lady’s maid and scheming her way out of the servants’ chambers. But one such plot could get her hung for treason if anyone ever discovers what she’s done.
When the king summons the girls, they arrive expecting arrest or even execution. Instead they learn the truth: they are his illegitimate daughters, and one must become his new heir. But someone in Kolonya knows their secrets, and that someone will stop at nothing to keep the sisters from their destiny… to rule.
Magic, mystery, and blackmail abound in this sensational and striking fantasy debut.

My Review:

I did liked this book. The story idea was pretty neat and the cover was pretty. I liked the idea that total strangers are thrown together by fate. As of right now I don’t have a favorite character yet. It was an magical read.

Zofi, Akeylah and Ren don’t have a lot in common. Until one day at a king’s summon, their world gets turn upside. I like at first the girls want nothing to do with each other. Mostly the girls are focus hiding their secrets and trying to survive palace life. But, when a blackmailer comes along, will the girls be able to trust each other or is one of them the blackmailer?

This book is filled with magical fun. A little history lessons about the kingdom and how magic is made. If you looking for a new fantasy adventure, with some twists and turns. Then your in luck, you might enjoy Rule.

Happy Reading!

{Arc Review & Giveaway} The Storm Runner by J.C Cervantes

Book Summary:
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging. He’d much rather hang out there with his dog, Rosie, than go to middle school, where kids call him Sir Limps a Lot, McGimpster, or Uno—for his one good leg. What Zane doesn’t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he’s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in—unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father. To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can’t even walk well without a cane?
Feisty heroes, tricky gods, murderous demons, and spirited giants are just some of the pleasures that await in this fresh and funny take on Maya mythology, as rich and delicious as a mug of authentic hot chocolate.

My Review:

This book was so much fun. Really did enjoyed every minute of it. Also did learned about some Mayan mythology. This middle grade book is for all ages.

I adore Zane in the book. He was like the underdog throughout the story. He got this limp and no powers. Yet everyone thinks he can break this god out prison. There are secrets to who he is. So what Zane is story and what does it have to do with gods?

I think the book is a quick read. Sadly took me a while to finish it bc I had work. If you enjoy action adventure books, while learning new mythology, this book could for you. Comes out the 18th.

Lucky for my readers I have an extra arc to giveaway on my blog. US Only.

I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall

Book Summary:
After
Jess is alone. Her cabin has burned to the ground. She knows if she doesn’t act fast, the cold will kill her before she has time to worry about food. But she is still alive—for now.
Before
Jess hadn’t seen her survivalist, off-the-grid dad in over a decade. But after a car crash killed her mother and left her injured, she was forced to move to his cabin in the remote Canadian wilderness. Just as Jess was beginning to get to know him, a secret from his past paid them a visit, leaving her father dead and Jess stranded.
After
With only her father’s dog for company, Jess must forage and hunt for food, build shelter, and keep herself warm. Some days it feels like the wild is out to destroy her, but she’s stronger than she ever imagined.
Jess will survive. She has to. She knows who killed her father… and she wants revenge.

My Review:

I did liked this book. It was very detailed on what happen to the main character in the book. This book for me will be a one time read.

I did liked Jess in the book. It’s a sad story on what happens to her in the book. The things she has to do to survive in the short time she was with her father was unfortunate. Will she be able to survive, to get her revenge on the people who kill her father?

This read is for people who like survival stories. It very detailed book on what Jess had to do in order to survive. You get flashbacks on how she end up alone in the woods. If you want to read it and unsure of it, then get it at the library. Looking for something new and different then you guys can try this book out.

Happy Reading!!

Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Book Summary:
Every other day, Kali D’Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She argues with her father. She’s human.
And then every day in between . . . she’s something else entirely.
Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism.
When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her, and unfortunately she’ll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive . . . and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.

My Review:

This book had so many Buffy the vampire slayer feelings. I did enjoy the story idea of the book. And also the characters within the book I like. I happen upon this old book on instagram. Glad I find it at library and read it.

Kali, our demon hunter in the book. I liked her a lot in the book. She is brave and daring. Willing to risk her life for people she hardly knows. Then at school she is just a new girl hardly anyone knows her. Once she see the head cheerleader bitten, will she be able to save her life? Both her demon world and human life will collide. Will Kali be ready to let her new friends in?

This book is filled with demon killing. There some twists and turns along the way. If you into demon hunters type of books, then you might enjoy this book. I glad I found it on social media.

Happy Reading!!!

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Book Summary:
“What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?”

The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.

My Review:

This book is so good and very empowering. Such an emotional rollercoaster ride this book. The story was good and the conection with the characters felt real.

I really liked Starr in the book. I thought she was brave in it. She tries hard keep her life separate from her school life. Once a she watches her friend passed before her eyes, both her worlds collide. Who will stick by Starr side in the end?

The book was so moving and very detailed written. I was glad I finally picked this book up before the movie comes out in Oct. 19. If you have yet read this book, I suggest you do before the movie comes out.

Here is the trailer:
