{Arc Review} A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy

Book Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Eva is a princess, born with the magick of marrow and blood–a dark and terrible magick that hasn’t been seen for generations in the vibrant but fractured country of Myre. Its last known practitioner was Queen Raina, who toppled the native khimaer royalty and massacred thousands, including her own sister, eight generations ago, thus beginning the Rival Heir tradition. Living in Raina’s long and dark shadow, Eva must now face her older sister, Isa, in a battle to the death if she hopes to ascend to the Ivory Throne–because in the Queendom of Myre only the strongest, most ruthless rulers survive.
When Eva is attacked by an assassin just weeks before the battle with her sister, she discovers there is more to the attempt on her life than meets the eye–and it isn’t just her sister who wants to see her dead. As tensions escalate, Eva is forced to turn to a fey instructor of mythic proportions and a mysterious and handsome khimaer prince for help in growing her magick into something to fear. Because despite the love she still has for her sister, Eva will have to choose: Isa’s death or her own.

My Review:

A River of Royal Blood is such a promising new fantasy read. The storyline was very detailed written. Some of the characters you will end up loving or hating. It was such a magical read which I love.

Eva in the books has not been seen in years. She been away trying hard to train and getting ready to face her sister into battle. With no magical training, it going to be tough. She bumps into a hunter, who may hold the key to unlock her powers and face unknown family secrets. Will she be ready to take on her sister in time?

The summary give most of the book away. I enjoy the flashback Eva has with her sister. How they used to be so close and now they must kill each other. You can tell throughout the book she conflicted on what to do. The world building is pretty neat and the setting. The story centers mostly when sisters have to kill each other to get the crown. Lots of magical effects happens and sister rivalry.

Looking for a new read, then check out A River of Royal Blood. It came out this week.

Happy Reading!!!

What an I reading this Monday?

I’m rereading Renegades series. Getting ready for signing event on November 5th. I still need to start second book also.

What you guys reading?

Summary:

Secret Identities. Extraordinary Powers. She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies — humans with extraordinary abilities — who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone… except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice — and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} The Memory Thief by Lauren Mansy

Book Summary:
In the city of Craewick, memories reign. The power-obsessed ruler of the city, Madame, has cultivated a society in which memories are currency, citizens are divided by ability, and Gifted individuals can take memories from others through touch as they please.
Seventeen-year-old Etta Lark is desperate to live outside of the corrupt culture, but grapples with the guilt of an accident that has left her mother bedridden in the city’s asylum. When Madame threatens to put her mother up for auction, a Craewick practice in which a “criminal’s” memories are sold to the highest bidder before being killed, Etta will do whatever it takes to save her. Even if it means rejoining the Shadows, the rebel group she swore off in the wake of the accident years earlier.
To prove her allegiance to the Shadows and rescue her mother, Etta must steal a memorized map of the Maze, a formidable prison created by the bloodthirsty ruler of a neighboring Realm. So she sets out on a journey in which she faces startling attacks, unexpected romance, and, above all, her own past in order to set things right in her world.
My Review:
I really did enjoy The Memory Thief. The storyline was fast pace and very interesting. Did like some of the characters in it.

Etta mostly tries to stay under the radar. She walks around pretending she not gifted in order to keep her mom alive. Etta done some stuff in the past she not proud of. When she received an letter about her mother, she must return to her past and accept her gifts in order to change the world and save her mom.

This book like I said before is fast pace story. You can get suck into the world building and the history to it. You get you learn a lot from Etta past and what lead her to hide in first place. Be ready for some nice twists and turns in the book. It reads like a standalone book. Not sure if it’s a series or be more. Hopefully more readers discover this read.

Happy Reading!!!

Finish Reading:

I did like this modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Will write my review of the book soon.

Currently Reading:

I’m in the middle of The Hive. I’m liking it a bit. It has an interesting storyline.

Summary:

Cassie McKinney has always believed in the Hive.

Social media used to be out of control, after all. People were torn apart by trolls and doxxers. Even hackers – like Cassie’s dad – were powerless against it.

But then the Hive came. A better way to sanction people for what they do online. Cause trouble, get too many “condemns,” and a crowd can come after you, teach you a lesson in real life. It’s safer, fairer and perfectly legal.

Entering her senior year of high school, filled with grief over an unexpected loss, Cassie is primed to lash out. Egged on by new friends, she makes an edgy joke online. Cassie doubts anyone will notice.

But the Hive notices everything. And as her viral comment whips an entire country into a frenzy, the Hive demands retribution.

One moment Cassie is anonymous; the next, she’s infamous. And running for her life.

With nowhere to turn, she must learn to rely on herself – and a group of Hive outcasts who may not be reliable – as she slowly uncovers the truth about the machine behind the Hive.

New York Times bestselling authors Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden have teamed up for the first time to create a novel that’s gripping, terrifying and more relevant every day, based on a story proposal by Jennifer Beals and Tom Jacobson

Looking forward to reading The Memory Thief. The summary sounds very good. The cover is so pretty for it.

Rules of Vanishing by Katie Alice Marshall

Book Summary:
In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister–at all costs.
Once a year, the path appears in the forest and Lucy Gallows beckons. Who is brave enough to find her–and who won’t make it out of the woods?
It’s been exactly one year since Sara’s sister, Becca, disappeared, and high school life has far from settled back to normal. With her sister gone, Sara doesn’t know whether her former friends no longer like her…or are scared of her, and the days of eating alone at lunch have started to blend together. When a mysterious text message invites Sara and her estranged friends to “play the game” and find local ghost legend Lucy Gallows, Sara is sure this is the only way to find Becca–before she’s lost forever. And even though she’s hardly spoken with them for a year, Sara finds herself deep in the darkness of the forest, her friends–and their cameras–following her down the path. Together, they will have to draw on all of their strengths to survive. The road is rarely forgiving, and no one will be the same on the other side.

My Review:

Rules for Vanishing was a haunting good read. I did love the storyline and the characters in it.

Don’t go in the woods unless you want to play Lucy’s game.

On the eve of Lucy’s disappearance years ago, a mass text message is sent to play the game. Some kids believe in the story and sent out into woods to play.

The main character Sarah, is dealing with a lot stress. Her sister disappeared years ago playing the game. Now it’s her turn to play and go find her sister. Becca left her clues to help her along away. With the help of Sarah and Becca friends, will she be able to find her alive?

Follow the rules and you might make it out alive.

This book really draws you in. There some scary stuff in it, so you might want to read with the lights on. This book really mess with your head on what’s real or not. It has some awesome twist and turns. In the mood for a good fall read then this book than this will be perfect read for you.

You might have trouble sleeping after reading it.

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review} The Grace Year by Kim Liggett

Book Summary:
Survive the year.
No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden.
In Garner County, girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, to drive women mad with jealousy. They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood. That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive.
Sixteen-year-old Tierney James dreams of a better life—a society that doesn’t pit friend against friend or woman against woman, but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that it’s not just the brutal elements they must fear. It’s not even the poachers in the woods, men who are waiting for a chance to grab one of the girls in order to make a fortune on the black market. Their greatest threat may very well be each other.

My Review:

The Grace Year was an interesting read. I did liked the book but not love it. The storyline was intriguing and the characters are likable.

Each year woman are chosen to enter the grace year. No one knows what it is. Just that the woman are accuse to have power and each year they are taken away to get rid of it, according to the men in the village.

Tierney throughout her life just keep her head down and distance for everyone. Once she chosen for the grace year, she has her whole life turn upside down. A year of the unknown with people she hardly talk with it. There are hunters watching their every more. Trapped for a year, she must use her knowledge to survived.

This book starts strong. Slowly we learn of the people and who entering The Grace Year. The storyline idea was good, but drags out a bit in the middle of the book. It has a bit of lord of the flies feeling to it. If your into survival books, you might enjoy it. It was hard writing a review without giving anything away. The book comes out October 8th.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Red Skies Falling Alex London

Book Summary:
In this thrilling sequel to Black Wings Beating, twins Kylee and Brysen are separated by the expanse of Uztar, but are preparing for the same war – or so they think.
Kylee is ensconsed in the Sky Castle, training with Mem Uku to master the Hollow Tongue and the Ghost Eagle. But political intrigue abounds and court drama seems to seep through the castle’s stones like blood from a broken feather. Meanwhile, Brysen is still in the Six Villages, preparing for an attack by the Kartami. The Villages have become Uztar’s first line of defense, and refugees are flooding in from the plains. But their arrival lays bare the villagers darkest instincts. As Brysen navigates the growing turmoil, he must also grapple with a newfound gift, a burgeoning crush on a mysterious boy, and a shocking betrayal.
The two will meet again on the battlefield, fighting the same war from different sides―or so they think. The Ghost Eagle has its own plans.

My Review:

Red Skies Falling was action packed. I love entering the world of Black Wings Beatings again. If you have yet read this book one, then you don’t need to read this review.

The brother and sister team are back again and getting ready to fight.

Kylee is off training with her new gift. She trying hard to control the ghost eagle. It no easy task when she can’t trust the people around her. Now that she separated from her brother, she has concerns for him and her family as a war is coming.

Brysen is holding down fort at home. He is keeping the hawk business alive, while trying to find his hawk. When an attack on the village is coming, he must be prepared and defend his home and hawks.

Will the brother and sister team see each other again?

I really love the original storyline of this world. It was very insightful on Hawks and training them. Sad some hawks die throughout this book but it’s an war story. Hopefully we have a happy ending in the third book. If your in mood for something different, then check out this series.

Happy Reading!!!
