Book Summary:

Ten years ago, King Lorcan of the Dark Kingdom Dorjhalon defeated Queen Evelayn and cut her conduit stone from her. Since then, he has kept her trapped in her swan form. With the loss of balance between Dark and Light, winter has descended and the Draíolon of Éadrolan lose more power every day. But once a year, Lorcan transforms her back to her Draíolon form and offers a truce. And every year Evelayn refuses — for he requires her to Bind herself to him for life.
But now, with an Ancient power bearing down upon them, everything may change. Evelayn will learn that the truths she once believed have shattered, and that she may need her enemies even more than her allies. Lorcan and Evelayn become partners in a desperate quest to return the balance of power to Lachalonia. How far will this partnership go? Can friendship — perhaps even love — bloom where hatred has taken root?
Sara B. Larson delivers a thrillingly romantic and hauntingly satisfying end to this extraordinary duology.

The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones

21767908_10210534345061474_7164158774707151829_n

Book Summary:

When Dee Moreno makes a deal with a demon—her heart in exchange for an escape from a disastrous home life—she finds the trade may have been more than she bargained for. And becoming “heartless” is only the beginning. What lies ahead is a nightmare far bigger, far more monstrous than anything she could have ever imagined.

With reality turned on its head, Dee has only a group of other deal-making teens to keep her grounded, including the charming but secretive James Lancer. And as something grows between them amid an otherworldy ordeal, Dee begins to wonder: Can she give someone her heart when it’s no longer hers to give?

My Review:

In a world where demons and humans are force to co-exist with each other. Some humans will send their limbs or organs for wishes. With Dee down on her luck and no where else to turn to you, she sells her heart to a demon. Now a servant working with others heartless like herself she must learn to live a life without an heart. This book sotryline was something different which I enjoy. It a fast pace read and pretty neat seeing an world where demons are in hiding but doing deals for humans for their personal needs. Why the demons there in the first place and taking limbs as wish payments? Why the heartless have an job to close voids? Find what secrets these demons are hiding. If your heartless can you truly love someone? Happy Reading!

21557531_10210487236363786_2765868765121793549_n

Book Summary:

The magicians want her to lead.
The sorcerers want her to lie.
The demons want her blood.
Henrietta wants to save the one she loves.
But will his dark magic be her undoing?

In this seductive and explosive second book in the Kingdom on Fire series, Jessica Cluess delivers her signature mix of magic, passion, and teen warriors fighting for survival. Hand to fans of Victoria Aveyard, Sarah J. Maas, and Kiersten White.

Henrietta doesn’t need a prophecy to know that she’s in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.

Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook’s system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own. So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.

My Review:

Henrietta life is now in danger. Being now the chosen the one and hiding out with her fellow friends. She must train hard to defeat the ancients and prove she has what it takes to take down the big bad. When the queen is attack and be demand Henrietta to give up. It up to her to find the secrets of her past and the truth about her who she really is. This book pick up where we left in book one. For those who have yet read book one then I suggest you pick it up. I love entering this fantasy world all over again. The world building, the story and love of magic. The author Jessica was nice enough to give me an arc copy and I thankful for that. If you have read book one here is my review for that, A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire #1) by Jessica Cluess. Had a very long in NYC sorry if review is kinda short.

21616300_10210437255074285_6542077257736996555_n

Book Summary:

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

My Review:

Warcross is an VR game everyone either plays or watch it. Emika an bounty hunter, she lives off the street and struggle to get by. With the risk of loosing a place to stay she hacks into warcross. The owner of the game tracks her down and offer her a job. Now force to play the game and hunt down someone who trying to destroy the game form the inside. Now with lives at risk can Emika save the game and the people around her? This book I have fallen in love with the open world. An very good game building world. Set in Japan which I would love to go to one day. For gamer and Japan lovers you might enjoy this original story that Marie Lu has. So Happy Reading!

{Blog Tour & Giveaway} One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

By the publisher

 

 

 

21270922_10210388910825709_1222457841299945080_n

Book Summary: 

The battle for the Crown has begun, but which of the three sisters will prevail?

With the unforgettable events of the Quickening behind them and the Ascension Year underway, all bets are off. Katharine, once the weak and feeble sister, is stronger than ever before. Arsinoe, after discovering the truth about her powers, must figure out how to make her secret talent work in her favor without anyone finding out. And Mirabella, once thought to be the strongest sister of all and the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.

In this enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must face the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.

 

My Review:

So the book picks up where it left off, Queen Katherine back from the dead. Now time for the revenge and planning of her sister’s death. Not all the sister’s want to kill each other. There Arsinoe who still loves her sisters and the memories she has when they were taken to be train and kill each other for the throne. There is Mirabella still not unsure what to make after Arsinoe’s bear went and try to kill her. There is always a price of death that comes with the crown. Which sister will be the next queen? Well I was lucky enough to host my first blog tour. This book you guys will love better then the first one. Both books where pretty good. I am team Katherine all the way. You get to see what has become of Katherine after she comes back from the dead. I am more like Arsinoe queen where I just want all the sisters alive in the end and being happy. So afraid how the author will end the book. One Dark throne has more action and some deaths you won’t see coming. Book comes out September 19th but you guys will be lucky enough to enter my giveaway for the arc! Thanks again to Morgan the publisher and Kendare Blake for a change to do my first blog tout. Hope I get to do this again for the third book. Happy Reading!!

Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

21433247_10210416372192226_2938908793569505950_n

Book Summary: 

Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire… fond of blood, allergic to sunlight, and mostly evil… until the night a sparkly unicorn stabs her through the heart with his horn. Oops. 

Her family thinks she was attacked by a vampire hunter (because, obviously, unicorns don’t exist), and they’re shocked she survived. They’re even more shocked when Pearl discovers she can now withstand the sun. But they quickly find a way to make use of her new talent. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl’s family to host his feast. If Pearl enrolls in high school, she can make lots of human friends and lure them to the King’s feast—as the entrees. 

The only problem? Pearl’s starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends—especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache—to be slaughtered? Then again, she’s definitely dead if she lets down her family. What’s a sunlight-loving vamp to do?

 

My Review:

So what happens when an unicorn stabs a vampire in the heart? That’s what happen to 16 year old Pearl one faithful night. Now she somehow can handle daylight. With her family pushing her to enter high school to try to become one of them. Read this book years ago, it was a good fast read. Get to see what it’s like for an vampire to pass off being human. The catch is she must bring home food for a big party coming up. With Pearl now becoming more human like, will she have the heart to serve her new friends to her family? Whatever happen to that unicorn that stab her in the heart? So many life’s answer to be solve by picking up the book for yourself. Lucky barnes and nobles have the books in stock to get ready for the movie. This month lifetime movie network will air Drink, Slay, Love on tv. Happy Reading and watching. Here is teaser Trailer.

The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson

21557595_10210416357311854_1695683577751193246_n

Book Summary:

When all hope is gone, how do you survive?

Before the war, Eden’s life was easy—air conditioning, ice cream, long days at the beach. Then the revolution happened, and everything changed.

Now a powerful group called the Wolfpack controls the earth and its resources. Eden has lost everything to them. They killed her family and her friends, destroyed her home, and imprisoned her. But Eden refuses to die by their hands. She knows the coordinates to the only neutral ground left in the world, a place called Sanctuary Island, and she is desperate to escape to its shores.

Eden finally reaches the island and meets others resistant to the Wolves—but the solace is short-lived when one of Eden’s new friends goes missing. Braving the jungle in search of their lost ally, they quickly discover Sanctuary is filled with lethal traps and an enemy they never expected.

This island might be deadlier than the world Eden left behind, but surviving it is the only thing that stands between her and freedom.

My Review:

Wolfpack and powerful group that have taken over the world mostly. Eden an girl who been locked up, mange to escape with a group of unknown people. Together they must work together to find an safe place to hide out. Only clue to finding a safe haven lays in her father’s journal that he left her. This was pretty alright and good start for world building and all. They mostly find an island that is not all that it seems and some of Eden friends have secrets of their own. So which is worse the island or wolfpack? Well that you must read and find out. Happy Reading!
