Title: Circle of Ashes (Wish Quartet, #2)

Publication Date: April 9, 2018

Author: Elise Kova

Publisher: Silver Wing Press

Genre(s): New-Adult, Urban Fantasy, Romance

Summary:

EVERY WISH HAS A COST BUT WILL THE SOCIETY BE WILLING TO PAY IT?

Once a hacker-for-hire living in the shadows, Josephina “Jo” Espinosa is the newest member of a magical Society. Their mandate? To grant the wishes of mortals. A simple enough task until Jo is faced with an impossible wish – and her inability to grant it might spell disaster for her entire team, if not the Society itself.

Jo is used to high-pressure situations, but after a string of disasters, the last thing she needs is stakes of this magnitude. Especially given that neither she nor the Society know quite what the consequences of failing to grant a wish might be.

The only person with answers is the Society’s aloof and cryptic leader, Snow. Yet while Jo is enigmatically drawn to the man, all their clandestine encounters leave her with only more questions about the true nature of the Society, her magic, and her own history.

Time is running out for the Society, and an executioner will rise from among them to exact the price of failure.

Also enjoy the nice read along of the first here, Read Along.

Broken Beautiful Heart by Kami Garcia

Book Summary:

Her heart has to break before it can open.

When star soccer player Peyton Rios receives an offer from her first-choice college, senior year starts off exactly as planned. But when Peyton uncovers her boyfriend’s dark secret, she confronts him—and finds herself falling down a flight of stairs. Peyton’s knee—and maybe her dream of going pro—is shattered. Everyone is talking: Was she pushed, or did she fall? Peyton knows the truth, even if no one believes her.

He has to let someone in before it’s too late.

With her future on the line, Peyton goes to stay with her uncle in a small Tennessee town to focus on her recovery. Dating is the last thing on her mind—until she meets sweet, sexy Owen Law.

But Peyton doesn’t trust her heart, especially when she senses that Owen is hiding something. When their secrets are finally exposed, Peyton has to decide if love is worth fighting for.

My Review:

I really liked the book. The story was heartbreaking and little empowering with facing your fears.

I liked Peyton in the book. She is head strong and stubborn. Had everything going for her until an accident change her life forever. Now she leaves her hometown behind to coop with healing, and hiding from her painful pass. Will she be able to open herself up again and let go of the past?

I adore Owen, he comes off making dumb jokes at Peyton but then has an soft side as well. He is a fighter with his own secrets and not good opening up either. With Owen, who is force to help Peyton heal from her accident. It would be a matter a time before secrets get out. Will these two be strong enough to stay together in the end?

This book has fighters in, and some sensitive subjects for younger teens. Book was just an good read and would the story over and over again. Just have some tissues ready.

Reign the Earth by A.C Gaughen

Book Summary:

Shalia is a proud daughter of the desert, but after years of devastating war with the adjoining kingdom, her people are desperate for peace. Willing to trade her freedom to ensure the safety of her family, Shalia becomes Queen of the Bonelands.

But she soon learns that her husband, Calix, is motivated only by his desire to exterminate the Elementae—mystical people who can control earth, wind, air, and fire. Even more unsettling are Shalia’s feelings for her husband’s brother, which unleash a power over the earth she never knew she possessed—a power that could get her killed. As rumors of a rebellion against Calix spread, Shalia must choose between the last chance for peace and her own future as an Elementae.

My Review:

Thought the book was an good read. The world building to it I did enjoy.

Felt bad for the main character, Shalia. She goes through rough times after marrying a man she hardly knew. Wish she could have use her hidden powers more in the book, to use and break free from Calix wrath. Hopefully in book 2 to get to see her grow more stronger.

The guard, Galen was my favorite in the book. He is so sweet and very protective of Shalia. The only one who stands up to his brother, Calix. Hope to see more of him in book two.

This book is action packed, full of magic and sensitive topic on something. Could lean towards more on older teens. I’m looking forward to see where things go for book 2.

Say you’ll Remember Me by Katie Mcgarry

Book Summary:

When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.

But sometimes love can breach all barriers.

Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves–Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence–and each other to finally get what they deserve.

My Review:

This book was so good. I always adore Katie Mcgarry books all the time. Have fallen in love with her new characters and stories in each book she writes.

Elle in the book must do everything her family say because they know what is what and she don’t. At first Elle keep changing her looks for her mom and seem annoying a bit doing prefect routine. Meeting Drix helped get her out of her shell a bit. You get to see the real Elle. How long can she hide from her folks on who she really is on the inside?

Drix the bad boy in the book, from wrong side of the tracks. He learning from his past mistakes and try to become a better person for himself and his family. When he bumps into Elle one day, both their lives change. I really like Drix in the book. Glad he becomes an change man and deep down he also have an good heart. Can Drix help Elle become her own person in the long run?

Can Elle and Drix see the good in each other and bring out their true selves in the book? Or this is another doom love story. Well you have to have out for self how it will end for these to love birds.

Happy Reading!

{Arc Review} The Traitors Prince by C.J Redwine

Book Summary:

Javan Najafai, crown prince of Akram, has spent the last ten years at an elite boarding school, far away from his kingdom. But his eagerly awaited return home is cut short when a mysterious imposter takes his place—and no one believes Javan is the true prince.

After barely escaping the imposter’s assassins, Javan is thrown into Maqbara, the kingdom’s most dangerous prison. The only way to gain an audience with the king — and reveal Javan’s identity — is to fight in Maqbara’s yearly tournament. But winning is much harder than acing competitions at school, and soon Javan finds himself beset not just by the terrifying creatures in the arena, but also a band of prisoners allied against him, and even the warden herself.

The only person who can help him is Sajda, who has been enslaved by Maqbara’s warden since she was a child, and whose guarded demeanor and powerful right hook keep the prisoners in check. Working with Sajda might be the only way Javan can escape alive — but she has dangerous secrets.

Together, Javan and Sajda have to outwit the vicious warden, outfight the deadly creatures, and outlast the murderous prisoners intent on killing Javan. If they fail, they’ll be trapped in Maqbara for good—and the secret Sajda’s been hiding will bury them both.

My Review:

This book was so good. Really liked some of the characters in the book and the world building.

Javan was like an underdog in the story. A prince who has to worked hard to live. I think he has about a lot of lives in this book after nearly being killed so many times. It was fun watching him grow throughout the book.

Sajda is on tough girl, you do not want to mess with. In charge with the prison that Javan gets sent to. She is one tough cookie with secret of her own. Where she dreams of freedom.

This book was very action pack, filled with gore. Enjoy the story of Javan and Sajda that is told. Excited to read more books from this author. Lucky this book comes out this week, so you don’t have to wait long.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones

Book Summary:

Six months after the end of Wintersong, Liesl is working toward furthering both her brother’s and her own musical careers. Although she is determined to look forward and not behind, life in the world above is not as easy as Liesl had hoped. Her younger brother Josef is cold, distant, and withdrawn, while Liesl can’t forget the austere young man she left beneath the earth, and the music he inspired in her.

When troubling signs arise that the barrier between worlds is crumbling, Liesl must return to the Underground to unravel the mystery of life, death, and the Goblin King—who he was, who he is, and who he will be. What will it take to break the old laws once and for all? What is the true meaning of sacrifice when the fate of the world—or the ones Liesl loves—is in her hands?

My Review:

This book was an alright read for me. You get to see what happen to Liesl, after she the goblin king let her go. The book was just slow moving for me. You see how Leisl tries to have an normal life without the goblin king. Get to know more details of her family and brother life. In the end the book got dead bodies and very less romance than the first. It finally ends Leisl story in Shadowsong. For fans of Wintersong the first book might like it better then I did. The pretty covers to Wintersong and Shadowsong is what had draw me in at first place and the summaries on the back. Was sad the story was not meant for me. Hope other people enjoy how it all ends.

Book Summary:

Hadley McCauley will do anything to keep her sister safe from their father. But when Hadley’s forbidden relationship with Charlie Simmons deepens, the violence at home escalates, culminating in an explosive accident that will leave everyone changed.

When Hadley attempts to take her own life at the hospital post-accident, her friends, doctors, family, and the investigator on the case want to know why. Only Hadley knows what really happened that day, and she’s not talking.

My Review:

I really this book. It was such an emotional read for me. I adore Hardly and felt so bad with the pain she goes through. Everyday she endure her father abuse mental and physical abuse. Hardly an strong person to be putting it up with it for years, just to protect her sister from the abuse. Also I like Charlie, who breaking Hardly out of her shell. He been there for her every step of the way and try hard to get her to open up to the abuse. This book has sensitive topic on abuse, some romance. I think mostly for little older teens. If you are getting abuse please don’t be afraid to ask for help and speak out.
